    So, i was just watching NFLN, and the dude from put up your dukes, said that he likes "the champs" to win against pit...

    and the other day I was reading some news paper sports section, and they also refered to them as "The Champs"

    isnt it great? havent won the big won in like 2 years, and are still called the champs, wonder how that makes the colts feel?

    Disrespected. You know, that old card that half the teams in the league play every year. They have a legitimate gripe for being disrespected though, unlike most teams who play that card.

    Champs? We'll find out the first Sunday in February... maybe sooner if they're bounced from the playoffs.

    Yeah, they should feel that way. But, I have a feeling we're going to see the Colts again. I know Pitt beat them in 05 at the Pumped In Noise Dome. But, I think they'll meet again this year 2 vs 3 game. I don't think Cleveland , Tennessee or Buffalo can win a playoff game in Pittsburgh. Pitt gets Indy. We get the winner of the SD/Jax game. I like the Jags. Garrard impressed me against Indy. Passes were right on the money. Jags have a bunch of big wr's. No shifty guys. I think they could use a guy like D.Branch.

    Looking at the position the Steelers put themselves in with their pathetic losses to inferior teams we can kiss the bye week goodbye. So, winning on the road against the two best teams (INDY, NE) in the league is a pretty tall order. We did in in 05' and we can do it again... we've got to play much better football though. We're in the final quarter of the season and we need to start peaking now.

    This guy is only trying to inflate his own ego by making that statement - not the Patriots.

    They've done nothing that counts thus far. A perferct regular season will be a footnote in the record books but this team isn't interested in that.

    If any member of the Patriots heard this guy they'd put him in his place.

    Quick note. The Steelers never played NE in the playoffs in '05. Had they, I doubt they would've been SB champs.

    Well you didn't play against the two best teams.

    It was Indy/Denver.

    I dont think the Colts relish playing either the Bolts or the Steelers,but the game played in their home arena will be a boost....If either of those teams brings their "A" game,they'' be a handful.

    I know who we played in 05' (CIN, INDY, DEN, SEA), my point was that this year we'll have to play in Indy, and if we win we'll have to play in New England. Those are the two best teams in the league this year so far. In 05' Indy and Denver were the two best teams and we beat both of them on the road... we did it then and we can do it again.

    I know we didn't play NE in 05, but you guys weren't the best team in 05' we were. Had we played you we would've won, look at the way we played against CIN, INDY, and DEN in the playoffs... we were lights out. You guys went into Denver and lost, we went into Denver and dominated... we were undoubtedly the best team of 05'.

    I don't know if you can say undoubtedly. And the Steelers looked terrible in the Super Bowl, so I don't think it's out of the question that the Patriots may have beaten them in Foxboro.

    We'll never know.

    Fair enough, it's possible though unlikely that you guys could have won in Foxboro. We sucked in the superbowl and still won by 11 points... seems to me the Pats have never won one by more than 3 so I don't care about how we played. We won, and won convincingly 21-10.

    There are certainly a lot of football fans who do not think that win was convincing. Face it, "that's just how it goes."

    Why is it unlikely? The Pats crushed the Jags at home and they beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh earlier in the season. They've shown that they pretty much own the Steelers this decade, why is it likely that Cowher would have changed that in '05?

    Timesteelersfan, I wish we could all see into your mind so we could see the seething going on it there regarding our beloved New England Patriots. I would love to see how much the Patriots LOSING or getting bounced from the playoffs really means to you cuz I'm willing to bet it means a helluva lot!;)

    The playoff run in 05' is the best football we ever played during the Cowher era. Cowher finally had a franchise QB to go along with his outstanding run game and defense. When it all came together late in the season we went on a tear unlike any other team in history. First 6 seed to reach the championship, first 6 seed to reach the superbowl, first 6 seed to win it all. Not to mention we beat the top three AFC seeds then the Top NFC seed. All four of those teams had top ten offenses(1,2,4,6) if I'm not mistaken. It was the greatest run in postseason history, unmatched, probably never will be.

    Remember that time in that superbowl, that Ben DIDNT cross the white line, and it clearly WAS NOT a touchdown....but counted anyway?

    We're still two Lombardi trophies ahead of you and I want to keep it that way. I'd rather see you guys win it than the Cowboys, but I'd rather see anybody else win it over the Patriots. Cowboys, 49ers, Steelers. Only teams with five baby!

    LIke the time Tom Brady fumbled and they made up a rule to save him? See, I can say stupid **** too. Doesn't make it true. You guys have gotten more than your fair share of breaks over the years so don't even think about going there.

    Obviously, that is your opinion. Personally, I would say holding the number one rated scoring offense to three points (the #3 seed), putting 41 points on the number one rated scoring defense (the #1 seed) and then beating the #1 seed of the NFC to win your third title in four years is more impressive. But that's just me, and I suppose you could call me slightly biased. :D

    And all it takes is some terrible officiating and boneheaded mistakes for any team to lose (;) ), so what the Steelers did to the Broncos and Colts does not make me believe that they could have beaten the Patriots had they played them in '05 (especially not in Foxboro). But, as I said, we'll never know, so arguing over it is fairly pointless.

    stupid sht? the tuck rule was a rule, a stupin unfair rule? Maybe...but there is also a rule saying the ball has to cross the white line in order for it to be a td, and it clearly did not.

    it was, hands down, the worst call in the history of the superbowl. The evidence is there, the ball NEVER crossed the line, no one can argue other wise, becasue you can see it clearly.

    Touche...but that is the past, isn't it? We'll see how this year turns out & let's see how many great free agents we pick up next off-season at less than they would sign to play for the Steelers.

    Cuz they all wanna play for the Patriots "Baby"!

    Sour Grapes about a great play. The camera angles are not straight on so it's impossible to tell from them whether he did or didn't... you are 100% absolutely, no doubt about it wrong. The ref had the best view possible and what did he say? Touchdown Ben Roethlisberger. Next subject.

    I have to say before this year, Pittsburgh was the team I disliked the most.

    Couple of reasons. Number one, Cowher. That guy just -- what words can I say. He pretends to be a top NFL coach and plays Kordell (crying) Stewart. And sticks by the fool. Then he tells his team to pack their bags, they are going to the SB. Then all the antics and that stupid face. Every time I saw that guy it just turned me off. And he is even worse as an NFL commentary. And his co-workers know it. Go away already.

    Second, Palmer. I am a person that can enjoy other NFL players. I really liked Palmer. Enjoyed watching him play. That AFC championship game where he was taken out, well, it did not sit well with me. He has never been the same since.

    So, we move forward and Cowher is gone. Uh, seems Big Ben is happy about that. Pittsburgh does not bother me one bit. Big Ben seems to be an OK guy, and they are just playing football.

    But honestly, I think the two biggest threats to winning the AFC championship are the Pats and Colts. And the Colts have to come to our house this time. Good luck.

    And my new most disliked team, the Colts. Dungy, please with your religion. Get over it. No one on this planet is holy. And, I will not get into it, but you better take a look at your own life. And Manning, Peyton and Eli, spoiled brats. And the Colts fans, oh can it get worse.

    So Pittsburgh, I will never root for you. Never. But, you are forgotten. If you win, so be it, I will get over it. The SB is all that counts.

    Road to the SB game runs through Foxboro.

    Absolute BS. You can't back that up so don't even try. Try using facts that are real instead on the ones you make up to fill in your argument.

    Yeah, amazing isn't it??? Never thought we would lose to the jets, or to Arizona or Denver for that matter. But the fact remains, we did.. This team seems to play down to the competion for some reason. BUT, they also play very well against the better teams in the league. I am reasonably sure they will be ready to play this Sunday as well. Should be one hell of a game.....

    Against Cincy, von Oh Oh cheapshotted Palmer to end his season; against the Colts, let's just say you guys(especially Fatazz Bettis) got extremely lucky; and Denver really just plain old sucked as they benefitted from some controversial calls against us and the Pats were still clearly the better team(it just wasn't our year). Had you come to Gilette the Patriots would have assuredly pounded the Steeler's sorry azzes.

    God the 05 season brings back such bad memories for me. Pitt barely beat the the Bolts in the last minutes 22-24. The Bolts beat NE snapping the home winning streak, beat the Colts in the dome and snapped their 13 game streak. But the Bolts ended up going 9-7 and missing the playoffs. Friggin pathetic! We lost 5 games that year in the last 2-4 minutes. Sigh. Makes me sad.
