Jets, Rex Ryan will upset Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh and advance to Super Bowl XLV

If Mark Sanchez (6), Braylon Edwards (17), Dustin Keller (81) and the Jets offense limit turnovers against Pittsburgh, Gang Green will be playing again on Feb. 6 in Arlington, Texas.

Trying to Steel One

Little Rex Ryan had just turned 5 when the Jets, with his father Buddy on the defensive staff, won the Super Bowl 42 years ago last week. It would be almost another 18 years before Mark Sanchez was born.

But together they will end this painful Super Bowl drought for one of the NFL's no-luck franchises when the Jets go into Pittsburgh on Sunday, win the AFC Championship Game and make it to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV.

"We're one game away from where we want to be," Darrelle Revis said Monday.

It won't be easy. The toughest part is over for the Jets. They beat the hated Patriots. The Jets will make their fans suffer, of course, for three hours Sunday night.

But then ... Jets 20, Steelers 17 in a slugfest.

"We've talked about it all year about going to the Super Bowl and winning it," Revis said. "This is just another steppingstone. We don't need to put the pressure on us. Just relax and be confident in what we believe in."

The Jets are two-thirds of the way through the most treacherous road any team has ever had to travel to get to the Super Bowl: Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger. And they will finish the job against the Steelers with Sanchez becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to win five road playoff games - and he's only in his second season.

Can the Jets sense the Super Bowl?

"I feel it," Revis said. "I think we really need to focus in on this AFC Championship Game and don't let it slip like we let it slip last year when we had the lead on Indianapolis."

This is different than one year ago when the Jets shocked even themselves - despite Ryan's convoluted proclamation at the start of the playoffs that the Jets should be the favorites to win it all - by making it to Indy for the AFC title game. They led 17-6 in the second quarter before coming down with a season-ending case of the Same Old Jets, giving up the final 24 points of the game.

This season, as they have been telling us since walking off the field in Indianpolis, they are Super Bowl-bound. They had a season of bizarre distractions and vulgar proclamations - Antonio Cromartie telling the Daily News last week that Brady is "an ass----" was the highlight, so to speak. But they are about to cash - and not bounce - the check they have been writing with their trash-talking mouths.

Ryan came here to win Super Bowls. What would getting there mean to him?

"It would be huge," he said.

Why the Jets?

- First of all, the intangible: You can just sense it being around this team. It was the same way with the Giants going into Green Bay for the NFC title game three years ago after winning in Tampa and Dallas. The Jets are on one of those rolls that come around once every 42 years.

- Forget the theory that it's impossible to win in noisy Pittsburgh twice in one season, no less twice in one month. Evidence: On Dec. 16, 2007, in the 14th game of the season, the Jaguars beat the Steelers at Heinz Field, 29-22. As the No. 5 seed in the playoffs, the Jags went back to Pittsburgh 20 days later and beat the No. 4 seed Steelers 31-29 in the wild-card game. The Jets won, 22-17, in Pittsburgh on Dec. 19, surviving two Roethlisberger darts into the end zone from the 9-yard line in the final 10 seconds. That was also the 14th game. The Jets are going back 35 days later.

That's cute - most of the Baltimore Sun writers picked the Ravens to win last saturday - we know how that worked out

Leaving aside the article noting the 22-17 win while being silent on Polamalu & Miller not playing , any analysis that is based on such insights as "you can just sense it being around this team ... the Jets are on one of those rolls that come around once every 42 years" is tripe. Jets are in the same place they were last year - 2 road wins over a mediocre division winner and a prohibitive home favorite that gagged.

That jag playoff example is a really really poor example. We limped into the playoffs that year on a downward trend (that was the year tomlin literally ran the wheels off of fast willie). The game we lost was a wildcard playoff game, not a afc championship game, and steelers nation wasnt nearly as pumped for that game as they are for this one. But, as someone mentioned, that is their hometown newspaper, so of course thet are going to predict a jets win...

Rex Ryan will upset Steelers

You know, this is the third week now where Rex says he's going to beat a team but I have yet to be able to figure out where he is on the field.

Does anyone know what number he wears?
