Default Humor Me -- What 2nd-Round Match-Up Do You Want?

We all know it's an any-given-weekend league ... Mendy is out ... Ben's injury could worsen ... Tebow could be touched by a wand again, etc.

But since one of Cincy-Houston *has* to win, which of those teams will you pull for? If the Bengals win, that would send the Steelers to Baltimore the following week. If the Texans win, it would mean Steelers at Patriots.

I want Steelers-Ratbirds in the second round, knowing full well Baltimore may complete the three-game sweep.

(No replies about bad luck or jinxes, please. If the Steelers can't beat this Broncos team, I say good riddance to the season.)

I'd take us in NE. Knowing our calls we'd run too many empty set backfields against the Ravens'. Suggs and others may have a field day back there.

I would rather go to NE first. Ratbirds are more physical and Ben and Pouncey could use some extra time to mend.

We'll have a full week of rest this week, our WildCard game is Sunday.

I'll be rooting for the Bengals. Reason is that I don't believe the Texans can beat the Ravens with the injuries they have, especially if Delhomme has to play QB. The Bengals could beat the Texans and then I'd give them a shot at taking out the Pats as their defense is absolutely horrible. We will need to take care of the Broncos and then the Ravens ourselves. This scenario is the only way we could host the AFCC game, so that's what I'm hoping for. Steelers/Bengals at Heinz.

The Broncos are dying for a home playoff game - do you really think their run game and defense won't challenge us? Yea - focus on Tebow all you want and take it lightly all you want - but what makes you think we will win so easily to the point where you are bringing up a game that might not even happen 2 weeks from now?

The Steelers are a "Wild Card" team for a reason - never know what to expect

If the Steelers live up to their potential this year - we'll come out flat/unprepared and inept in the red zone and barely escape or lose

Calm down with the divisional round talk already - don't tell me about playing a divisional opponent - if this year's team was capable of anything - they would have come away with 7 instead of 1 TD, Field goals, punts, repeat.

Better teams do more than this - just accept it already. If we win great, but why are we even discussing this?

because thats what you do on football forums. Talk football. Its not like the players are looking past the game. Fans opinions have no outcomes, so if they guy wants to ask the question whats the big deal.
