Sixth Seed Makes The Super Bowl
Does anyone really believe that the Steelers are a sixth seed?
Were it not for some mid-season injuries, the team would have been 14-2 (maybe 13-3). Pittsburgh is truly the best team in the AFC.
Fine. Maybe it's better to fly under the radar and have everyone underestimate your team.
It's also better to be the underdog. Everyone loves an underdog.
It was funny -- and maddening -- to hear the big-brained TV commentators predict the Steelers weekly demise with each passing game. Most seemed to think that Pittsburgh would be killed by the Bengals in the first round of playoffs by recounting the teams last meeting (Pittsburgh was trounced). One big difference for the playoffs: The Bengals were meeting a different (read: HEALTHY) Steelers.
Get ready for a new NFL dynasty... it's shifting from Massachusetts and heading east to Pittsburgh.
Bottom Line: Steelers over Seattle by 10.
