Hey BTSC! Happy New Year. Sorry I haven't been able to post much lately. Me and the girlfriend bought each other Akita puppies for the Holidays. I didn't realize how my life was going to change! No time for anything as I watch my 10 week old Samurai 24/7. She's doing the same around the corner with Sam's sister from the litter Muki. Utmost respect to all the "real" parents out there. Can't wait until the puppies are a bit older and I can get back to some semblance of the wonderful life I had.
In between separating the 2 dogs I caught the games yesterday. Felt the Titans weren't all that and wondered if we would get a shot at them after they disrespected the TT. Guess karma caught up with fat LenDale. What really impressed me yesterday was Ken Whisenhunt. He was one of the few Steelers OC I actually liked. Congrats to the Whiz, who now has 2 more Playoff wins than Coach T.
That brings me to my point. Today's game against the Chargers will be a brawl. I will be rooting for our Steelers to get a W (3-2 baby!) and advance. You may disagree but there is pressure on Coach Tomlin to get this done. Get a W and it is vindication for the Rooney's for passing on Ken Whisenhunt and hiring the unknown Tomlin. This is Tomlin's biggest test. HUGE. Two home playoff losses in two years is not the stuff of legends. While I was happy with his first year (10-6 and a playoff appearence) and happy with his second (vast improvement in pass rush and specal teams and a 12-4 record) it all comes down to January wins. Whisenhunt 2 Tomlin 0 (for now) Hoping the Steelers come to play with their A game. Hoping they don't turn it over and play solid D and ST. Hoping they bring vindication to the owners, the city and the Steelers Nation. Here We Go Steelers!
