But I thought you didn't want the Steelers in the playoffs because you didn't want to be disappointed. And to get to the Super Bowl the Steelers have to make the playoffs. Color me confused.

So let me get this straight it's not because the Steelers suck it's because they don't want to put too many points on the board and risk being classless. Now I see.

And seriously can we please stop with this arrogant notion that the Pittsburgh Steelers are this "classy" organization who always do the right thing and have no troubled players. Ta'amu anyone?

Funny feeling, but we are going to beat the Patriots in the playoffs. With Ike back, i think our secondary can handle their receivers. And their defense, while they may be good against the run, I still doubt their team speed severely and I think our weapons can exploit that. We would have to go through Denver first however, but I think we would be able to run the ball against them and Manning has never been known as a playoff performer. Yes I know I am looking way ahead, but the Steelers are a good football team and I think they'll prove it.

Put down the crack pipe!
You apparently don't remember Steelers playoff performance against the Brady led Pats.

Dude - that was EIGHT years ago with a rookie QB.

Are people forgetting the complete and total ass whipping we gave them last year? Keep in mind, this is a Patriots team with largely the same roster in place. Great, they added Talib, but he's by no means a shut down corner and struggles with speedy WRs - something we have an abundance of.

I'll take Brown / Sanders on Kyle Arrington all day, please and thanks.

Get over it already. Of course I only want to see the Steelers in the SB EVERY YEAR. They aren't playing like a PO team THIS YEAR, this ain't their year which isn't the end of the world. Maybe they should sit at home and watch the POs instead of getting in just to play shitty half assed ball. Some people like to be realistic about their teams issues, others like to be delusional. It's not really that difficult to figure out.

the comparisons to the XL squad when we reached 7-5 without Ben @ M&T were warranted. We all thought that outcome would be the thing that galvanized the team, then they come out and think they'll show up and they blow it. Records aside (if we end up at 10-6 or 9-7 and in) - the lack of leadership right now and the responsibility it brings, however intangible, is an obstacle that the 05 Steelers didn't have. Who is going to be the Jerome and Joey Porter in the locker room to rally the troops - to instill fear in the opposition, and help convince this team that they should have nothing to fear, and to play balls to the wall every single snap? This team has to gather every last thread of determination and heart that it has left and do what seems to be highly unlikely. It can be done - but for the realists, this will be not only the hardest path to the SB, but the largest collection of self-inflicted obstacles to overcome, not even counting injuries

I would love to believe Ben is that kind of motivator in the locker room or Woodley or Wallace, etc. They should all be motivators especially after that performance against SD. Funny thing, I didn't feel like they were that bad of a team in 2005, they had glimmers. I'm not feeling that this season, I haven't seen them play in a fashion where I could say to myself "gee if they play like that in the POs...." Not gonna happen every year. Isn't this like the every 3 year thing the Steelers go through? Don't know. Can't wait to see which team shows up to play in Dallas. I know the Cincy/Cleveland games are more important to us, but I don't loathe them the way I despise Dallas so a win by 1, 2 or 3 would not only complete the NFC East sweep, but make this season more pleasurable.
