you had to know this post was coming. her we go steelers, here we go. right to detroit. ok, so detroit sucks but what are you going to do. sundays game was a masterpiece of football beauty. the steelers controlled on both offense and defense. they never took their foot off of the broncos throats. on off ense it all started with the qb. he played, not like a second year kid, but like a seasoned veteran. ben is going to make people forget about marino, elway and montana before hes done. we might not have the prototypical number one reciever but we got five number twos...and that aint bad. ben completed passes to seven different receivers. they looked like waterbugs scampering through denvers secondary, pulling in passes and sustaining drives. the line held up like blocks of granite...even when the vaunted denver blitz came. no pressure = picked apart. at one point the steelers were 10 of 12 on third down.....that says it all. on defense it was like men playing with boys. the broncos couldnt run and they couldnt pass. that doesnt bode well for your winning percentage. the broncos with their two 1000 yard rushers couldnt get 100 yards total on the ground yesterday. they went over twenty minutes without a first down. the steelers blitzes did work and jake (the rattled snake) plummer was sacked a number of times and ducked out of at least four more. lelie caught a couple of nice balls once the game was over and the steelers were laying back but the rest of their receivers did nothing. turnovers....we got em and they didnt.
this team was primed for this run. the last five games of the year were like playoff games. they got healthy and gelled at the right time. they are the first team to win three away games to make the super bowl and ben will be the second youngest qb to start the game. lookm at this team roethlisberger and polamalu are both in their second years.....this team will be good for a long time. isnt it nice that bettis will get a chance to win the super bowl in his hometown in what will probably be his last year. its also a chance for cowher to get the monkey off of his back about winning the big game. this team has exercised alot of its demons this year.
alright lets get to work
