It had been a long wait since the Steelers last won a Super Bowl, with a series of severe disappointments that seemed to build upon each other in between. Alfred Pupunu. Larry Brown. Terrell Davis. Troy Brown. Rodney Harrison.
In 2005, the loveable loser Bill Cowher finally got his ring. Jerome Bettis got his ring. It was stirring drama that felt like the closing act of a play, complete with curtain calls. And sure enough, it was.
The fighters are scrambling out of MacDill Air Force Base (actually MacDill doesn't have fighters, they have tankers but they aren't too exciting). The deployment to the war in Tampa is underway with the media frenzy leading the first wave. Media day is behind us and they continue to invent stories or make a story appear to sound useful.
Well damn here we are again…The Steelers are in the Super Bowl. Before I start preaching the word this week (That’s right I’m going old school on your asses so buckle in tight kiddies) I will quickly summarize the Steelers season.
The Steelers protect Ben and limit the turnovers they win games…I can not give enough credit to this defense…Motto’s and nicknames are cute.They sell bumper stickers and T-Shirts…Mike Tomlin made a statement about this defense that sticks in my mind…Give us a blade of grass and we will defend it.
How about that Steelers running game? It’s been the talk of Steelers nation for the past week. The Steelers offense came out with a message to send…We will not cost this team a championship. Every aspect of the Steelers offense was sharp against the Chargers. The Steelers defense made enough plays to win the game…Make no mistake the Steelers offense carried the defense against the Chargers…I understand the Chargers have some quality playmakers…I’m not attempting to attack the Steelers defense…I’m attempting to compliment the Steelers offense.
