    I think I'm in the camp of if I have two guys that are showing no discernible difference in quality of play, I give the snaps to the rookie rather than the 5 year vet. I'd rather see McCuillers...

    Front loaders and dump trucks for the field, I believe they were offering $10/hour and free tix to game for people to come and help shovel. The stands will be a b1tch to clear.

    Heck, by the time that game is played the 4th, 5th and 6th seeds will have changed 3 or 4 times. It's impossible to tell how important it will be and who it will be most important for right now. ...

    10/game = 160/year (In my opinion not enough touches to get a back into the...

    Yup, and that's what I was pointing out about calling a timeout (if possible) or simply backing of the LOS and play deep safety. The fact that the Steelers completely screwed the pooch doesn't take...

    Some fans just don't want the Steelers to succeed because it will entrench Tomlin as the coach and in all likelihood get him an extension, which I believe he will get regardless, but a winning season...
