    Default So, how do the Steelers win #7?

    It seems to me you gotta control their WR's and not allow Rogers to get comfortable in the pocket. They gotta hit him early and often and severely limit his ability to make plays with his feet. Their RB's Starks and Jones don't worry me nearly as much as their receivers do. A healthier Troy should be able to cause all kinds of problems.
    On offense we need time consuming drives, which means another solid performance from Mendenhall and Redman to help keep Rogers off the field and our defense well rested. Ben should be able to throw the ball on them in a game where Hines and the receivers should flourish. I know the Steelers can beat the Packers, but I am nervous about this one. I'll feel alot better about it however if Pouncey can play.

    This is going to be a tough matchup for the Steelers. Possibly much tougher than the previous two Super Bowls.

    - Lebeau has got to call a masterful game. Sanchez (who isn't nearly as good as Rodgers) went 20/33 for 233 yards and 2 TD's today.
    - The secondary is sort of scaring me entering this game. The CB's can play well at times but hardly ever make plays on the ball.
    - Ben will probably have to play much better than he did today.
    - Hopefully Arians calls a complete game.

    One interesting thing to keep in mind is this game will be played at Texas Stadium where the field (and weather conditions) will potentially make the game faster than what we've seen so far in the playoffs. Steelers should try to take advantage of that both offensively and defensively.

    Steelers ready for 7th Super Bowl victory

    January 24, 2011 - By Buck Frank bfrank@altoonamirror.com


    PITTSBURGH - Steelers 73-year-old defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau sang a familiar tune as he came through the Heinz Field tunnel leading to the team's locker room.

    "Pittsburgh's going to the Super Bowl,'' LeBeau chanted as backup linebacker Keyaron Fox supplemented him with, "Here we go.''

    The Steelers, behind a dominating first-half appearance by both the offense and LeBeau's defense, are going to the Super Bowl for the eighth time following a 24-19 too-close-for-comfort victory over the New York Jets Sunday night in the AFC Championship Game before a Pittsburgh-record crowd of 66,662.

    The Steelers, who own an NFL-record six Lombardi Trophies, will try for No. 7 against the NFC champion Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

    "Can't wait! Can't wait,'' several Steelers, including safety Ryan Clark, shouted as they entered the locker room after hoisting the Lamar Hunt Trophy as champions of the AFC for the third time in six seasons.

    They were mocking Jets linebacker Bart Scott, who had shouted the same words after his team upset the New England Patriots in the divisional round last week.

    "[The Jets] were quiet all week until about Friday,'' Clark said. "They tried to stir things up with me saying we have six Super Bowl trophies. But if we go and win another one in two weeks, they'll never have to hear me say that again, because we will have seven.''

    To win their seventh, the Steelers will need to beat another sixth seed, like the Jets. The Packers won the NFC Championship Game earlier Sunday, 21-14, over the Chicago Bears for their third straight road playoff win.

    The Steelers and Packers met at Heinz Field last season with the Steelers pulling out a 37-36 victory on the game's final play.

    "The Packers are a great team,'' Steelers receiver Hines Ward said. "It will be a fun matchup.''

    It appeared as though the Steelers were going to trounce their way to Texas by jumping out to a 24-0 lead in the second quarter, but the Jets, behind their confident coach Rex Ryan, didn't quit and needed just one defensive stop in the final 3 minutes to have a chance at pulling off the biggest comeback in AFC title game history.

    But with the Steelers facing a third-and-6 at the 2-minute warning and the Jets having used all of their timeouts, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fired a first-down pass to rookie Antonio Brown.

    The Steelers then kneeled with the ball three times to run out the clock.

    "There are 32 teams that start this journey, and there are two left,'' said 38-year-old Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, the first coach in NFL history to take two teams to the Super Bowl before the age of 40. "And we are fortunate enough to be one of them. It's awesome.''

    The Steelers, who lost to the Jets, 22-17, at Heinz Field on Dec. 19, ran their way to their big first-half lead. Rashard Mendenhall gained 95 of his 121 yards in the first half as the Steelers out-rushed the usually strong running Jets, 135-1.

    The Steelers scored on their opening possession of the game, as the Jets did in the first meeting, but the Steelers took nearly 9 minutes more to accomplish the feat.

    Brad Smith took back the opening kickoff for a touchdown in the first matchup, but the Jets won the coin toss and decided to kick off to the Steelers, who then used up 9:06 to travel 66 yards in 15 plays.

    Mendenhall scored from the 1-yard line to give the Steelers a 7-0 advantage after they converted three third downs.

    Roethlisberger was injured on the drive when he received a knee to his thigh, but he stayed in the game. His play seemed to be affected by the injury as he ended up completing just 10 passes for 133 yards and was intercepted twice.

    "That's us,'' Roethlisberger said. "It's not always pretty, but somehow we find a way to get it done.''

    Center Maurkice Pouncey suffered a scary ankle injury on the drive, and Doug Legursky replaced him on Mendenhall's touchdown run and played the rest of the game.

    The Steelers threatened to score at the beginning of the second quarter, but Roethlisberger's pass to Mendenhall on fourth-and-1 at the Jets' 32-yard line was intercepted by New York's Bryan Thomas. It ended Roethlisberger's streak of 197 pass attempts without a pick.

    But the Steelers got the ball back quickly and drove down the field, thanks to a 35-yard run by Mendenhall and 8- and 13-yard runs by Isaac Redman. A Shaun Suisham 20-yard field goal increased the Steelers' lead to 10-0.

    The Steelers were not done in the first half, though. After the Jets' third punt of the first half, they drove 66 yards in seven plays and gained a 17-0 lead on Roethlisberger's 2-yard keeper.

    The first-half onslaught continued when Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor stripped the ball from Mark Sanchez on a corner blitz, and William Gay scooped up the ball and trotted 19 yards to build the lead to 24-0.

    "When you put points on the board as a defense, it's usually always big,'' Clark said. "You usually win those games. We have to build on that.''

    But the Steelers didn't build on the Gay touchdown. In fact, they didn't score any points the rest of the game.

    The Jets were unfazed by the 24-0 deficit and got a Nick Folk field goal before halftime. They immediately cut the score to 24-10 on a 45-yard Sanchez-to-Santonio Holmes touchdown pass less than 3 minutes into the second half. Jets safety Brodney Pool then intercepted a Roethlisberger pass at the New York 5-yard line, but the Steelers still held a two-touchdown lead entering the final quarter.

    The Jets then marched 80 yards at the beginning of the fourth and ate up 8:06 of the clock but couldn't get the ball into the end zone. LaDainian Tomlinson was stopped on fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line to hand the ball over to the Steelers with 7:50 remaining.

    But Roethlisberger fumbled the ensuing snap, couldn't get out of the end zone and was pounced on for a safety by New York defensive end Mike DeVito that cut the Steelers' lead to 24-12. The Jets didn't stop there, taking the free kick and marching 58 yards in 10 plays to cut the lead to 24:19 with 3:06 left on a 4-yard pass from Sanchez to Jerricho Cotchery.

    "We just need to execute better,'' Steelers linebacker James Harrison said. "[The Jets] came out and played a lot better than they did in the first half. They just had a better second half than we anticipated.''

    The Steelers, though, received a 27-yard kickoff return from Brown and then picked up a first down on a pass to tight end Heath Miller. The third-and-6 pass to Brown eventually set off a fireworks display at Heinz Field, an unlikely scenario back in September when Roethlisberger was serving a four-game suspension.

    "It took a lot of mountain men to overcome that big mountain,'' said Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel, sporting his long beard. "And now we get to go to the big dance.''

    Well.....................Although the Packers are the best representative from the NFC in a long time they are still the NFC. They play inferior teams and Rogers was exposed yesterday.

    NFC teams simply can't compete with the defenses we grow in Pittsburgh!
