[QUOTE]Dude, I am sure you are a good person, but you have attacked me all year. You have hidden anger and then just explode and attack. I do not trust the refs and Pitt with him on a supposed one foot. I disagree with your opinion. I would not want some faux gimp Roehtlisturd and the refs walking in here next week. I question if he was even hurt as bad as they said. He looked fantastic in the 2nd half. I still say NE played a C game there and Pitt an A game and they aren't great, nor is Denver. Denver does have Tebow who is a wildcard for them. I just cannot see him doing this stuff in NE next week. Can't see it. I am not sure it's a huge deal who we play. I really don't think it is. This is about attitude now. This is about how this team wants to play. NE has to play how they can and they go to a SB. That simple. No turnovers, no dumb crap and light up the intensity. I've said it before, will say it again: I'll roll the dice with a hungry BB and Brady every day of the week.

I agree. As it was, Denver got jobbed several times in this game. The fumble that wasn't. The two face masks that were not called. (Definitely more holding by Steelers O-line than Broncos O-line, but they were not making those calls, and in neither case was it anything like what happened with the Saints.) It was not overt favoritism, like the Saints got Saturday, but I am very wary of the "breaks" the Steelers always seem to get.
Now maybe the refs will let the Broncos hold all game, like last time. But contrary to what some people have posted on the first page, the Pats destroyed the Broncos, after a sluggish start.
Consider that the Pats right now are much more formidable than the Steelers were today. And the Pats are facing the Broncos for the second time. And the Pats have Chung back. And the Pats are riding an extended win streak. And the Pats are playing at home. And the Pats are playing at sea level. And McCourty may be perfect at safety.
Watching the game tonight, I felt really good about the Pats' chances against either team.
Again, I have a really good premonition about the Pats this year...provided the refs don't do to them what they did to the Lions.
