[QUOTE]In Response to Re: so yeah, Big Ben is in the same league as Tom... : Yes they were intimidated. Thats happened in the last 3 playoff games. If the opposing defense has a good game plan then our offense has no answers. They dont make any adjustments. You can't tell that they werent confused during that 8 minute drive in the 4th quarter, one that didnt result in any points! That was simply awful. All of our wide recievers do the same thing and cannot go down the field. Did Brady throw a single pass over 15 yards in that game? When did we beat those tough physical Steelers? In the regular season, and that doesn't matter once you are in the playoffs. Didn't we also destroy the Jets 45-3 in the reg season? How did that work out in the playoffs. Don't get me started on the Pats defense. If the Steelers defense held the Pack to 24 points, and thats with Pitt committing 3 turnovers. How would the Pats defense have done? Rodgers might have put up 50 on the Pats defense, without a doubt.

A little volatile this morning, no?
You do realize that vanuted STeelers D allowed 31 points, and it probably SHOULD have been more like 45 if not for a multitude of wide open dropped balls, one by Jones which would have been a 60 yard TD, correct?
Barring those drops, that game is a runaway. Keep in mind, people rave about the Steelers D.
NE was 9th in points allowed average on the back end of a rebuilding phase.
Please try to realize what's happening here.
NE is trending UP, Pitt now trending down.
When Dick LeBeau retires next month, we'll see how good Pitt's D is in the future and we'll see how vocal you are when NE moves forward with theirs.
NE opened as FAVORITES for the SB next year at 10-1.
GB is 11-1.
GB actually reminds me of NE in a lot of ways. NE just needs a DE and OLB infusion with the better pass rush.
