The Ravens have to beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh
Miami needs to beat New England
Green Bay must defeat the Jets
The Falcons have to win at Cleveland
The Cardinals need to beat Denver
The Raiders must beat Kansas City
The Seahawks have to beat the Chargers
Yes its a chance in hell I know… but its a chance dammit!
I honestly don’t really care whether we make the playoffs or not, I’m just thrilled we’ve done this well. Billick is hands down the coach of the year! Give us one or two more years and we’ll have another superbowl.
a)God himself comes down and smites the Steelers for their wicked ways
b)Every team in the NFL except for them gets stomach flu 15 minutes before the game
c)Hell freezes over
Better luck next year. Not that you’ll need it. Weirddave and I have this discussion regularly, and I’ve conceded that they have the potential to be absolutely awesome next year. And Billick should get Coach of the Year this year.
But that’s all next year. This year I’ll be watching my Steelers go all the way to the Super Bowl (hoping, hoping, hoping :)) while your boys are working on their golf game.
I think the point is that the Stillers have had a less than stellar season so far (Can you say Houston?) and yet you’re acting like they’re 15-1 with the AFC crown already engraved with their names. I don’t see Pittsburgh as having the horses to come out of the AFC, and I damn sure don’t think they have a chance in the dance against the NFC champ if they do, last weeks win over Tampa notwithstanding. Philly crushes Pittsburgh by the end of the first quarter.
I’m not acting in any such manner. Like Christina, I plan to root for my team all the way through 'til the end. I think it is great that Christina is still looking for a way for her team to win. That’s just too fun. But as I said, I can’t root with her.
In today’s NFL, you never know. I don’t see them beating any legit teams in the actual playoffs, but just getting there would be a huge accomplishment. I know Dave has covered specifically the reasons why Billick’s job this year has been stellar, I find it amazing that with that roster and those injuries they’re even mathematically still in it as of the final week.
