More blind-eyed rationalizations.
You praise Roethlisberger's presence of mind for staying behind the line of scrimmage, and you conveniently ignore the fact that he narrowly avoided a sack, then benefitted from Grant Wistrom simply falling down as he pursued the QB out of the pocket.
The underhanded shovel pass to Hines Ward was another example of a fluke play that happened to go the Steelers' way.
And I don't even have to mention the luck they experienced on defense thanks to the officials. See the previous 1000 posts on this thread.
Yeah, clearly they draw up offensive plays that involve poor pass protection, mad scrambles, and clumsy defenders.
You're forgetting the "luck" involved with having the two players that hooked up for a 66 yard gain on the first offensive play of the game of the first playoff game also get hurt on that play. I mean, what are the odds?
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
