Hall of Fame Poster
Nobody cared that the 9 - 7 Giants committed mental mistakes and played like crap when they beat NE in the Super Bowl.By what rationale are they "due" to win? They still commit the same kind of mental errors. The coaching is still lackadaisical, and lacking in attention to detail.
If they truly want to beat us, they need to put in that extra effort, the extra work. They haven't done so, as far as I can see.
The Steelers came within inches last year of winning. Their passing game vs NE defense is like crap through a goose. JUJU is every bit as good as Brown and they unlike NE, can spot late round WR talent and develop them. Other WRs on their roster are better than the rag tag guys like Dorsett and Patterson.
Is Bell better than Conner? Probably yeah, but Conner is no chump. While Conner is racking up yardage and TDs, NE sits and hopes that Sony and Burkhead will come through like winning the powerball.
Steelers are due to win and Tomlins head is on the chopping block to deliver.
