    The first time Ben won the Superbowl, they beat the #3 seed (Cincinatti), the #1 seed (Colts), and the #2 seed (Denver). Then they beat the #1 seed in the NFC Seattle. Just saying.

    Easily a double digit underdog next week, play loose and anything goes. I would tell our punter not even to suit up, we’re going on every 4th down (hell he can’t kick anyways)

    We got a shot if Watt takes Mahomes out of the game early in 1st quarter.

    So we have a chance, LOL.

    Yeah, proud we didn`t fold up like a cheap suit as they say. Proud of Ben coming through with essentially two game winning drives because the defense choked away a late lead in regulation. He was able to reach back for something even when the tank was on empty. What you would expect a true HOF QB should be able to do. We are probably done, but I`m proud. Ratbird and Brownie fans have to hide or be silent.

    I've been having the same thoughts. It kind of annoyed me last week when several players said they stepped it up b/c they wanted to get Ben a win in his last home game, and I'm thinking that's what you're supposed to do every week anyway.

    But yeah, I'd love to see this motivate them to take Ben all the way, but it just seems like such a slim chance. I'm still pretty happy with how the season ended no matter what happens as bad as it seemed at times this year.

    Yeah not 2 bad 2 sweep 2 teams in the Division. Especially with the so called worse Qb in the division, and the worse run Defense in the league. :shrug:

    We’d like to think that players are always able to play at their peak level regardless of the situation. But that’s just not a reality. You always find a way to dig deeper when something is super important to you.

    Hell I'll cheers to Covid if it means another SB. Whoever, whatever, just win!
    Unfortunately there's not a lot of optimism. I'm not shocked we made the playoffs. I've said all along were a mediocre team. We were in the mix of things with a bunch of other mediocre teams.

    Every now and then mediocre teams make some noise. We haven't shown much for me to think we will, but hey, you can't win if you're not in the playoffs at all.

    KC is such a bad matchup for us. Teams have had success against when they've been able to stop the run and make them one dimensional. KC is average at running the ball, so they can be stopped. The problem is we can't stop the run. So that opens up the whole Andy Reid playbook with Mahomes slinging it. That's a nightmare for us.

    The Titans are scary too if they have Henry, AJB and Julio healthy. When they get their playaction going, they are very, very good. That's a very different team with Henry playing. Not sure if he'll be playing or not though

    30 year fan here. I don't post much. I mostly lurk. I know we don't have the greatest team. We may not even win a game in the playoffs. But I am so proud of the lack of quit in the team. Win one for Ben. Just one more game! And then another....GO STEELERS! P.S. No tie tonight.

    Steelers would have to play like God's for 4 games. They don't have enough talent to do that. Steelers almost always lose to great QBs in the playoffs.

    It's a nice thought but that 2005 team had one of the best defenses ever and outscored opponents by 131 points on the season. They also won twice as much as they lost.

    I enjoyed watching Ben's last season. Najee and Pat were great draft picks. Always enjoy watching our defensive stars. Watching Watt's DPOY was fantastic- what an incredible year he had despite nagging injuries.

    The talent is there. Will it be used effectively?
