Q: Only two teams rushed for more than 100 yards against the Steelers this season. One of them was the Jets, who rushed for 106 in their Dec. 19 win at Heinz Field. Why were the Jets so successful in running against you guys?

A: They had good balance. They did a good job with the run and the pass. They didn't put (quarterback Mark) Sanchez in a bad situation. They had third-down situations that were very manageable and were able to run the ball or pass it. They had that option. They have two great running backs, LaDainian (Tomlinson) and Shonn (Greene). Those guys have been playing excellent.

Q: What does it mean to be hosting the AFC Championship Game for the second time in three years?

A: What a great opportunity this is for us. Nobody really expected us to be at home for the championship game. We were all preparing ourselves for the worst, but we all were hoping (to be at home). To be back in this championship game and have it at home in front of our home fans is going to be awesome. Our fans have really done a great job, especially last week. They were very loud and they were very instrumental in our win last week.

Q: Is Mark Sanchez underrated as a quarterback?

A: I don't know if he's underrated. He's a good quarterback in my eyes. He does a great job of managing their football team. He doesn't do anything to lose the game. He has been doing a great job all year. He deserves a lot of respect, and we definitely give him a lot of respect.

Q: Does experiencing a Super Bowl championship like you and some of your teammates have done twice enhance the desire to win another?

A: No doubt about it. Once you've been there before and you've been across that line and you've won a championship, you always want that same feeling. You are always thriving to get that same feeling back.

Q: What would it mean to you if Aaron Smith is able to play Sunday after missing the last 11 games with his triceps injury?

A: He's a guy who has been around here for a long time. We feed off his energy. To have him out there even if it is a few plays, it will definitely give our defense a boost. I don't know. I'm just hoping and praying that he gets a chance to get out there with us. We'll see what happens.

Q: Does it bother you when people say the Steelers' defense is too old to win a championship?

A: It doesn't bother me. They have been saying that around here for years now, especially with me. We just go out and do what we do. We stay focused and we don't really feed into the media hype that we are too old. We've still got a lot left in the tank.
