Here is a very cool poem that is making the rounds. I think I recieved it three or four times so far…
Our Steelers put a major hurt on the dirty birds today, winning the AFC Championship game 23-14 at Heinz Field. It should have been a worse beating than that but we had to play the officials again today too. No matter, it’s on to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa to face another flock of birds in the Cardinals. No sweat, we’ll pluck them too.
The offense started off strong in this game, but sputtered a bit in the second half. Thank God for the Steelers “D”. They played a great game again and sealed the deal with Troy Polamalu’s “pick six” with 4:34 left to go in the game.
RING SIX!!!!!! LET’S GO STEELERS, WIN ANOTHER ONE!!!!!!
The AFC Champioship game will be played at Heinz Field vs the Ravens this Sunday, 1/18/09, at 6:30PM. Vegas has the Steelers as a 6 point favorite.
Our feeling is that the Steelers will win by at least 10 points. Reasoning? –> The Steelers have a defense as good or better than the Ravens. The Ravens offense is not the caliber of the Steelers, especially the way the Steelers offense and the O-Line have improved in the last two games. Willie Parker is back to full speed and appears to be on a mission. Ben looks healthier now than he has since the season opened. The Steelers fans and the Terrible Towel will make life difficult on the Ravens and their rookie QB. Granted, the guy has played pretty well for a rookie and he doesn’t seem to get rattled, but that will change with this game. The pressure to win is up and the Steelers D will apply even more pressure than he can handle. This should force the Ravens into mistakes and 3-and-outs. Injuries: the Ravens have several guys nicked up while the Steelers have only a couple of minor nicks.
The keys to this game are; not turn the ball over, punt well when necessary (don’t give them a short field), and keep the pressure on Flacco. If you see Ed Reed heading in the opposite direction, we might be in trouble. Other than that the Steelers are good to go!
