    Winters,...
    BCA Bowl: A bust. Where did LSU go?

    Not a fine evening, unless you're a big Tide kinda person.

    (I know it's not NFL, but the closest FB outside of the bigs.)

    Correct. This is not a forum on religion, so lets stick to football.

    I think some of us were having a little fun with the Tebow thing and all, and that a few folks may not have realized this. I may not like Sunday's outcome--hell, I hate it--but I can't help but scratch my head over the coincidences. Kinda makes me wonder, especially after he just happened to have the best game of his career against the team with more playoff games under its belt than any other in NFL history.

    We'll see what happens next Saturday evening at Foxboro.

    Why waste your time? We know what will happen. The biggest waste in NFL history. The Pats will clean their clock. At least the Pats and the Steelers would have been a game.

    It's just a shame.

    With the way the Steelers offense has been playing the last several weeks, I'm not so sure of that.

    Honestly, with the injuries the Steelers have, and they way they had been playing, I wasn't sure while watching the game that it wasn't the Steelers I'd rather see on Saturday.

    It's going to be difficult to beat Tebow and the Power behind him. ;)

    Believe it or not, I believe the Steelers would have manhandled the Patriots. They always seem to do just that. I wouldn't doubt if some of the Steelers got a wee bit arrogant and complacent against Denver. They wouldn't have done so if faced with playing New England.

    No chance of that as banged up as the Steelers are. The Pats played their worst game of the season, in Pittsburgh, and had the ball down 6 with 2 minutes to go. At home, healthy, against a beat up Steelers team would not bode well for the Steelers.

    Patriots historically are 3-1 against the Steelers in the playoffs, outscoring them a combined 99-58.

    Steelers would have probably had to sign 2-3 people after all the injuries in the Denver game.

    As banged up as they were, Pittsburgh has dominated New England the last few years. They would have done so this Saturday. New England should consider themselves lucky they're facing Tebow & the Holy Broncos.

    That collective "Whew!" you heard last Sunday evening was the Patriots all breathing a sigh of relief.

    Going back to the beginning of the Brady/Belichick era:

    2001 - Patriots 24 - Steelers 14 (AFC Championship)
    2002 - Patriots 30 - Steelers 14
    2004 - Steelers 34 - Patriots 20
    2004 - Patriots 41 - Steelers 27 (AFC Championship)
    2005 - Patriots 23 - Steelers 20
    2007 - Patriots 34 - Steelers 13
    2008 - Steelers 33 - Patriots 10 (w/o Brady)
    2010 - Patriots 39 - Steelers 26
    2011 - Steelers 25 - Patriots 17

    Now, about that domination......

    Indeed it is. As I stated above, Pittsburgh has dominated New England the last few years.

    The delusion is strong with this one.

    You cannot possibly look at the results and say the the Steelers dominated the Patriots. That is laughable. They've split the last 4 games, and one of those Patriot losses was without Brady. And prior to that, the Patriots completely owned the Steelers. The only domination hewre is in the other direction.

    And Brady has never lost at home to the Steelers. Yeah, we were all shaking in our boots. :nono:

    I can, indeed, because it is a fact. The Steelers have dominated the Patriots the last few years.

    And the only reason he won't this time is because he's not playing them, for which he is extremely grateful.

    Slightly surprised... Less by the outcome than by how it got there... I did not see that score and that outcome happening together.
