Relax man, we've earned this respect. Cherish it. Relish it. Bask in it.

Not really a choice to make - i grew up in western PA - with sports bars followed by Sunday Ticket the technology made it easy to keep following the team I first cheered for

I understand, I am so thankful Sunday Ticket came along, could not imagine just being limited to Jets & Giant games every week ( I live in Nj)

Well, see, here's the difference now...

In 2005 it was "One for the Thumb"

In 2008 it was to be the first team in history to win six.

But now it's about being the team to beat. We're in a position now where we can become the team that New England has been for the last decade; the team that everyone, every year expects to be in the Super Bowl and I think we're ready.

There are no more slogans, no more clever little rallying cries. It's time for this team to step up and simply BE the best team in football and BE the team to beat for no other reason than because we are!

Have the Patriots ever needed any motivation other than to confirm that they were the team to beat? Can you picture Belichick staying up nights trying to come up with some kind of motivating war cry?

Hardly.

They simply showed up and went about their business as THE NUMBER ONE TEAM IN FOOTBALL and that was that and they were perfectly content to stay that way until some other team proved them wrong.

The Steelers are at that point now. There's no need to get into any sophomoric war of words with a bunch of other teams who are all trying to talk themselves into believing that they actually belong here.

WE BELONG HERE!

PERIOD!

So i don't give a rat's ass if the entire ESPN workforce picks us to win it all because in my mind we SHOULD win it all because WE CAN AND BECAUSE WE'RE THAT GOOD!

Marshall Faulk picked the Jets but I doubt anyone is shocked. He was trashing the Steelers today.

Fans wanted to believe but after the Monday night Saints loss and the long tradition of Atlanta pro teams not winning any championships (1 World Series - that's it) nobody is surprised - suffice it to say the NFL expectations are a little lower here than they are in Pittsburgh
Honestly, the Falcons D was there undoing - they couldn't keep Aaron Rodgers and the GB offense off the field for very, very long stretches.

Yes, Ryan made critical mistakes which probably changed the personality of the game, but again, the Falcons D is not off the hook. Their D coordinator had no answer throughout the game.
