My Steeler Nation brothes...and sisters. How many times of you analyzed this game in your head ? Have you checked what the pundits have predicted ? Have you've been to NFL.com 50 times while at work??
Obviously, you could never predict what will happen in any game. As much as I want to guarantee victory today, I cannot. That's the beauty of sports and life..but that's for a different blog.
What I do know is this. There are so many factors that go into winning a ballgame, especially when it's 11 on 11. I also know that in the playoffs everything is so magnified and emotional that each play can be a white knuckle ride.
Today, I expect another harrowing trip at Heinz. IA game the will go back and forth and times it might even look like it's going the wrong way.
I also expect that the 2 men that will lead us to victory will be wearing a helmet and a headset. Can they continue to build their legacy together? Can they challenge Brady and Boring Bill??
Iron Mike will need to make that crucial decision in the 4Q. Go for it on 4th and 1 ? Pass to get the first down that closes out the game ?
Ben...well...just do what you do and you will need to do it in a big spot. He will need to make that play. It could be with his arm or his feet.
I'm probably stating the obvious but that doesn't really matter beacuse it's playoff time!!
GO STEELERS !!
