View Full Version : Flippy's Final Thoughts and a Little Conspiracy Theory

1. We're getting in the playoffs. Write it down.

2. Pittsburgh will get the 6 seed and Baltimore will get the 5. NE and Cincy will win their games. Why? Because they don't want to lose to a team they could potentially end up playing in the playoffs. No reason to give a team confidence that they can beat you 2 weeks in a row. My gut says Baltimore will lose to Oakland, but my little ounce of faith in conspiracies makes me believe there's better NFL matchups with Pittsburgh as a #6.

3. Conspiracy alert: Speaking of matchups, what better run could the Steelers make than to go on the road and beat NE, Indy, and then Baltimore. Sure it would be more impressive to beat the 1, 2, and 3 seed, but was there a better game in the AFC than last year's AFCC of Pittsburgh versus Baltimore? That rivalry is what the NFL is all about. And I see a rematch coming. Brady vs Ben would be huge as these are the winners of half of the SuperBowls in the 00's. Ben vs Manning would be another premiere billing that would get huge ratings as well.

4. We're on our way. Let's do this!!!!!!! Who's in?

Va Steelr

It never hurts to hope but I am pessimistic about our chances. I do not think NE or Cin. is going to try too hard to win a meaningless (for the most part) game.

all the haters in rat land, patsie land, bungleland and elsewhere say year in year out there is a conspiracy to help the steelers win. I hope this year they're correct. I'm 45 years old and I would greatly enjoy spending the rest of my life hearing them moan about how we won our 7th Lombardi......

I've read on the Rats board, that if they lose today, they're out. There's no 8-8 scenario that gets them in....... So they win and are in or lose and have no shot at making it.

I know NOTHING about all the specifics, but they seems pretty confident that's the case.

I'm in. It looks like NE is at least somewhat serious here.

I want to believe...I really do. Here is to the NFL being rigged. :)
