I heart CHFF................
Two especially interesting points:
5. The Steeler defense looked nothing like the numbers suggested. As we pointed out, Pittsburghâ€™s stats this season stacked up with any of the great Pittsburgh teams. Yet in the second half, the Patriots strung together drives of 8-for-54, 4-for-89, 10-for-50 and 13-for-89, all resulting in scores. Comparisons to Jack Lambert and the boys will heretofore not be made again.
6. Troy Polamaluâ€™s absence wasnâ€™t the difference. Was the hard-hitting safety missed? Sure. But in the three previous games heâ€™d missed with injury, the Steelers gave up a total of 10 points and pitched two shutouts â€“ so donâ€™t assume the Pittsburgh D just canâ€™t succeed without him.
