    Re: NFL Playoffs

    Three quick notes:

    1. At least we Bengals fans can say we made it as far as the Steelers did.

    2. John Elway and Gary Busey must share the same orthodontist.

    3. Did you notice how freaking STEEP the upper deck in the Denver stadium is? I'd be afraid if I slipped up there I'd roll right down onto the field...

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    The Steelers losing to an average team makes the weekend a little better, although I was really close to starting to pull for the Steelers. Took the fam to a local sports bar (a very family friendly one) during the second half of the game. I live in Jax, so the Tebow-mania was out in full force. We may have found the most annoying fans of all (excepting Cubs fans of course), the Tebow fans.

    The happiest person out there right now is Tom Brady, and probably Bill Belichek.

    I wouldn't say they didn't work. I'd say Pitt didn't run the proper defense for the situation. No safetys deep?

    An just an aside. Polamalu is a HOF safety. But he is over aggressive and often makes his living guessing plays. It sure is nice to see an offense make him look foolish. (The whole game really, not referring to the last play)

    I just meant it still only took one possession, same as the regular overtime rules. I was hoping for confusion of some sort.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    Is it me or do the Steelers almost always get favorable officiating. They definitely go it today. Can't believe they missed that backwards pass, that one was blatant. Also hard to believe they missed that blatant facemask on the Broncos drive before the Steelers got the ball back late in the 4th and tied it up.

    Tim Tebow might not be an amazing/elite Quarterback, but he sure is special.

    It is in the NFLs best interests, as things stand today, for the Steelers to be successful on the field. That is a fact. The rest of the story, if there is one, may never be known.

    There's never a dull moment, he's either making fantastic plays or he's missing in fantastic ways, there's no boring mediocrity in between.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    When the Steelers got the ball back with about a minute and half left and started moving it, I would have bet large sum they were going to win.

    Big win for Denver.

    Of course, I guess it depends on which Tim Tebow shows up.
    Great call!
