What the fuck is wrong with these idiotic talking heads?

Yes, I know we aren't gonna beat them 43-14. Yes I know "they're different now." (chiefs that is)

But I just saw yet another idiot, Jimmy Johnson talk about how Ben throwing downfield plays into the Chiefs hands.

Huh?

You can't just act like the first game never happened. And I fully expect a truly competitive game....but to throw the results of the first asskicking out the window is just plain stupid and shows your bias.

Same people pick against us consistently.

And lastly, we are different from the first matchup also. We are better.

Fake news now on sports channels also?

:roll:

Given weather and Chefs poor run D I agree Ben going downfield in wind, ice rain etc is frankly very risky. As for the match-up, Chefs get back Houston though how many snaps he'll play is up for debate. Chefs are missing key pieces on dline and Johnson was far and away their best run defender. This is a day for Ben to throw 15 times and Bell to run, run, Dwill series then Bell run some more.

And what happens if the O line isn't dominating? What happens if they come out flat, and can't run the ball to save their life?

I'm concerned they will force the issue when it's not working. Then they get pass happy in Q4 and hope nothing bad happens in a freezing downpour.

Guess my point is that regardless of the Steelers game plan in this wet, cold rematch, they probably have a chance.

All good points Cor-Ten. And when is everyone going to realize that DWill is not getting carries unless Bell get's injured. It's not how Tomlin and Haley roll.

the talking heads are unbelievable idiots

One guy today says the Steelers season has been very "up and down" so he expects down this week

Wait, we won 9 games in a row!

where the fuck is the 'up and down'?

as I said in another thread, I understand the idea of discounting our game in Mia against the Fins, because:
1.Ben got injured in that game
2. we were missing 5 starters on Defense

I knew we were a different team from that day

But I don't see the Chiefs being very different from the reg season game.

Their personnel is identical except for JHouston

I don't expect a 30 point win, but I won't simply say that KC is a "totally different team" -- they are not
