As bad as it looks...



 There's got to be a silver lining. The Patriots were thoroughly outplayed by the Cleveland Browns a week before - Peyton Hillis had a whopping 186 yards against that Pat defense. They show up at Heinz and make the Steelers look like Woodlands High. The worst beating in the last twenty years when the reason for defeat was not turnovers.

There was a total mismatch in schemes and level of execution. Know why?

Belichek  is a master motivator and a great preparer. Apart from the game plan, he used a couple of news items to fire up the Pats. Some bright spark in Pittsburgh media decided to bring up Spygate last week and wondered if the Steelers were robbed of several Super Bowl appearances because Belichek orchestrated theft of signals from Dick Lebeau. The reporter even asked Lebeau what he thought and Dick suggested by his response he thought there was skullduggery. Bill suggested to Brady that the Steelers felt that he cheated his way to those Super Bowls, and of course Brady took it the way it was intended. He was jacked all night with the commentators wondering when was the last time they saw him like that.

Additionally, did Lebeau revise his signals? Could the Pats have used old documentation on Lebeau to call the offensive plays on Sunday? It certainly looked that way, didn't it? Brady had the correct plays called everytime.

Anyway, the point is, as bad as the Pats were last week, they were great this week.

Why can't the Steelers rebound in a similar fashion?
