  1. I really hate the Steelers. I am a Broncos fan since 83. But, seeing the post game interviews for the Steelers players and coaches I gained a lot of respect for them. Stating they have no excuses and giving props to where it belongs. I know they may say the boring cliches but thats the right way.

    Big props to Ike Taylor for his post game comments. Could of went a different route but he took the blame.

    As for the rest of the NFL. Go ahead and thank Denver for knocking out the Steelers and improving the rest of the playoff teams chances of getting to the big show.

  2. It’s interesting how many Jets fans were crowing about Mason and Holmes early in the season compared to the ineffectiveness of Ochocinco for the Pats

    But even with Chad’s underwhelming contributions most teams would rather have him than those guys.

  3. This Redskin fan says, “Hey Minnesota if you want Landry you can have him!!”….Then Shanny can bring in someone who tackles correctly without a lot of flexing his biceps for the camera. Especially when you gave up 5 yards on 3rd and 3.

  4. From the Steelers/Broncos game we learned one important thing: Tim Tebow can bomb. And as long as a team can bomb, it is never out of a game.
