One horse down, one to go............

you read it here last monday when i explained why the steelers would win. did you believe me? well? oh how the hell would i know, you probably didnt. no one did. nobody gave the steelers a chance in hell of winning this game. not against the vaunted colts. those bastions of offensive trickery have had everyone scared all year ....that is until san diego came to town. the blueprint was laid for how to beat the colts. with a little pressure peyton manning is a very average quarterback. he was dancing in the pocket like he was getting lessons from arthur murray. he never looked comfortable. its unbelievable from someone who should be enshrined in canton immediately. did marvin harrison even play. i hardly heard his name called. the only time you heard his name was when manning overthrew him. i know the colts entire offensive line should be in the por bowl and it looks like they went to hawaii before yesterdays game. they had no answer to the blitz package. as for calls for de-fense, de-fense they might as well have been yelling de-caf, de-caf. they got pounded. our wide recievers pounded on them, our backs pounded on them and the offensive line pounded on them. they really had no chance. so even though the refs tried to give the game to the clots they couldnt beat the steelers. officiating in the nfl is a joke. if polamalu didnt catch that ball then nobody has ever caught a ball. the replay took forever but people forget that it takes some time to invent a new rule to help the home team. it was nice to watch the colts crying in their locker room after the game. it was nice of peyton to throw the offensive line under the bus. his words...."i confess, they did it". of course he did preface that by saying he was trying to be a good teammate.

i said it would take an almost perfect game by the steelers...and they came through. the game wasnt as close as the score would lead you to believe. having not played a meaningful game in almost a month the colts proved that rust never sleeps. now its off to denver to decide which team will have the honor of kicking the shit out of the nfc representitive. this should be a good old fashioned knock em down and drag em out kind of game.

Hats off to the Steelers! Once it was 14-0. you knew they were going to pull through. Colts and the referees made it interesting down the stretch. You are right the 21-18 final score made the game seem closer. Big Ben's tackle to save the touchdown after the Bus's fumble was HUGE! Colts play calling sucked. They had 2nd & 2 and 3rd & 2 at Pitts' 28 and couldn't get anymore yards. Their kicker should have attempted like a 30-35 yarder (of course he would have missed anyway) And, couldn't have happened to a more classer guy than Vander-jerk. Pittsburgh will take care of business against Denver. I would love to see Jerome Bettis get a ring.

What a game! I was drained by the time it was finally over. That was the worst call in the history of instant replay on Troy's interception. That referee should be banned from the NFL forever! Talk about poetic justice - Vander-jerk was the guy who said the colts could never win with Dungy & Manning!
