Rob Ninkovich details why the Patriots didn’t win the Super Bowl in 2007 (yahoo.com)

According to former Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich, the Steelers should lose a game to alleviate pressure in the playoffs.

“I felt that pressure relieve,” Ninkovich said on ESPN’s Get Up. “Because a perfect season doesn’t mean anything unless you win the Super Bowl.

“That 2007 Patriot team, I feel, If they would have lost maybe one game in the regular season and didn’t have that pressure of being perfect going into the playoffs, I think they would have won the Super Bowl.”


His opinion. Mine is Tomase's reprehensible hit job article on Super Bowl weekend was too big of a distraction that no team would be able to overcome.

Right, I think it's been mentioned by players on the team that the pressure was very much real, but even still they were an Asante Samuel INT away from accomplishing this despite the pressure.

I’d like to see them finish 11-5 or 12-4 with a victory over the Bills.
The original post was made when the Steelers were 11-0 with no signs of stopping. It’s crazy to think they did finish 12-4 and their playoff run fizzled in the first game.

Tomlin is now the coach of one of the greatest regular season collapses in NFL history.

I hate to say it but I do see some similarities to the 2019 Patriots.

The 2019 Patriots went into mid season 8-0 and fielding statistically what was one of the BEST defenses in history. Sure, the offense wasn't hitting on cylinders but there was a period when the defense and special teams were scoring more touchdowns than they were giving up. There was 16-0 discussion and then all of us a sudden the clock struck midnight. After starting 8-0 they finished 4-4 with some uncharacteristic home losses.....then of course another home loss in the playoffs. So as much as I hate the Steelers, in a way I can 'feel their pain'.

It is crazy to think how badly they 'hit the wall' though. I suppose we could look at their unorthodox season (all the schedule changes from COVID, not having a 'true bye week') as a cause......and this is coming from someone who would like to give them no excuses.

It would be more appropriate to connect COVID disruptions to their 11-0 start than to their 1-5 finish.

I don't think they will go a perfect season, I predict the Browns will knocked them off in the playoffs.
