    That’s the difference between Mccarthy and Belichick. BB knows pittsburgh is a tough stadium to kick in and would not have attempted a 57 yarder.

    I dunna know. I watched it live and recall how I was taken back a little as I'm not accustomed to a coach talking like that but whatever.

    If Tomlin thinks his players play better by him laying down the gauntlet then so be it.

    Looking ahead 2-3 games towards a team is clearly something BB does not want his team doing.

    Too bad all that "talent" never translates into an offense that consistently scores.

    A considerable amount of reason why they have that "talent" is Bell and Brown are targeted so much.

    The Steelers have faired best when someone else eliminates the Patriots.

    Good for him for trying to take on the beast. But, he should also remember how well BB does when he faces a team for the 2nd time in the same season...(wouldn't want Tomlin to sleep well at night)

    Yeah, but the difference is they're not singing it in the media. They never do.

    I was really really hoping GB would gift the Pats last night. I do agree with your points, but I still would have preferred to see them walking into that game at 10-3.

    Belichick throws bouquets to pretty much everyone except Fred-Ex in public. That's fine. It's just not the only way it has to be done.

    Meh, maybe or maybe not. I just know I've NEVER heard, explicitly or not, BB talk about an unscheduled game. Tomlin is obviously alluding to an AFCCG when the seeding hasn't even been decided. OAK looked like the #1 seed until about week 13 or so (I don't remember exactly when Carr fell). A lot can happen just next week. LOL

    I am hoping these steelers are circa early 2000s colts. We had their number but eventually they beat us in 2006 but we had a lot of success against those teams.

    Actually I believe bill when he said all he is doing is thinking about buffalo. It’s hard to not believe him. I’ve been trying for about an hour before writing this and I just can’t envision him thinking about that ass clown in Pittsburgh at all.

    On a side note, over at pft I’ve been informed that New England won’t last one quarter against philly and that the pats schedule is easy. It has not looked easy

    The injuries are piling up for sure. I think some of those guys will be back by week 15. We just have to bide our time and win the (presumably) easier games until then.

    You need to listen to what Tomlin actually said. He didn't say "We'll absolutely be there". What Tomlin did was to say what pretty much everyone else has been saying.

    Steelers' Mike Tomlin ready for 'fireworks' vs. Patriots

    Everyone with a brain knows that the AFC is, at least as of this moment, a 2 team conference with a few possible spoilers that'll fill out the playoff schedule.

    The Colts were actually the better team in 2006. I don't think Pittsburgh is this year.

    Of course he is. Why wouldn't he be thinking about a guaranteed win on the schedule? Any time you can obtain a victory before the game has even been played, as is the case for NE when they play Pittsburgh, it's to be celebrated and thought of constantly.

    Personally, I don't see anything wrong in what he said. He just acknowledged that it's a big game. It was a specific question from Dungy and Tomlin had to answer. He could have said I am just focusing on this game but he is no BB.

    If he's in fact seriously thinking about playing Pats in 3 weeks, they'll drop a game for sure before then.

    Tomlin is already thinking of BB and the Pats?

    I bet he'd be saddened to know that BB is not already thinking of Tomlin and the Steelers.
