Default Lupica - Jets wary of Steelers proud NFL tradition

Even more respect from New York, this time from Mike Lupica of the Daily News - excerpts and link below

Jets visit Pittsburgh with mouths shut wary of Steelers proud NFL tradition, six Super Bowls

There is still a ton of history to this AFC Championship Game, because of the Steelers, as much history as there is in professional football in this country. It is the kind the Giants have in the NFL, just with twice as many Super Bowls. The Jets have been around since 1960. The Steelers played their first game against the Giants in 1933.

"As rich a history as there is," Rex Ryan says of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers are the Rooneys the way the Giants, half of the Giants anyway, are still the Maras. The Steelers are three head coaches in the last four decades: Chuck Noll, the most underrated and under-discussed great coach in football history, and Bill Cowher and now Mike Tomlin. We really are talking about the aristocracy of the sport, even if the original seed money for the Steelers from old Art Rooney came after some longshot winners at Saratoga.

You don't go into Pittsburgh trash-talking the Steelers, or calling people names. You don't turn this one into the WWE. It hasn't been such a bad thing this week, the Jets having a sense of where they will be on Sunday, whom they are up against. And that means the varsity. They know all about Sundays like this in Pittsburgh.


Sunday evening cannot get here soon enough

Amazingly good article from Lupica. I like him on the Sports Reporters.

And he's right. You don't s@$% talk the best franchise in the best sport in Amercia. (Also, because James Harriosn may honestly kill you. For real. Not being sarcastic at all!!!)

Good read. The Jets should be wary, very wary, of what they are walking in to.
