    Sanders was actually ahead of AB during that season, losing him during the SB hurt.

    Before Mendy fumbled the ball the steelers were driving and shifting the momentum our way, we could of scored in that series.
    Then near the end, we ignore Hines Ward a sure handed receiver, and Ben ends up throwing a INT.
    In moments like that you have to find a way to win, what happened to us is all part of the game and I have no excuses for the loss.
    Green Bay was the better team that day, they were dominating us early on and held on to win. Its the same old thing we couldn't generate enough points early and that changes what you can do once behind.

    We gave them a good fight thats all we can ask for, sometimes the other team deserves credit.

    We hear the coachspeak all the time, "it's a fine line in the NFL". Watching a lot of games this season on NFL Redzone it amazed me that every Sunday there are at least 5 or 6 games that are one possession wins late into the 4th quarter. And it was never more evident than these playoffs this season, games turning on one or two, maybe 3 plays. Minimizing mistakes (both offense and defense) play an enormous part in these close games. For nearly every great game-winning offensive play, you can point to a defensive error of some type rather than a perfectly executed offensive play (which theoretically has no defense).

    I'm sorry but you must be wrong about all these games being decided late in the 4th quarter. It only happens in steeler games and it's the steeler defense (LeBeau) that is to blame if we lose and it's the steeler offense (Ben) that gets the glory if we win. Just ask ... well you know who.

    It is claimed that NE targets only guys with high football IQ. Maybe another reason why they can plug and play.
