Pats just beat us when EVERYTHING was lined up in our favor

Two of our best D players out, their headhunting TE gets a 1 game suspension instead of at least the two or more it should have been and we lose our MVP candidate in the 1st quarter. Hard to say "EVERYTHING was lined up in our favor".

I'm not saying it was perfect for the Pats either but it's pretty obvious we had some obstacles to overcome. Didn't quite get there and while I am extremely depressed, I am not giving up hope just yet.

"Bill, pick up. it's Mr Kraft." "Bill, just spoke to Roger, we're losing Gronk for Miami,. Should have been longer. Miami's going to be a loss, we'll be okay in Pittsburgh.

Sunday brought a bad result for the Steelers.
But in the aftermath of their 27-24 loss to the Patriots, there was some good news regarding wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Not only did he not need emergency surgery for compartment syndrome, he appears to have the good (better) kind of partial calf muscle tear.
Calf muscle strains and partial tears are known to linger, especially in explosive athletes like Brown.

If this were a partial tear from elongation suffered while changing directions or pushing off, it could easily affect Brown for the next 4-6 weeks, which would leave him at less than 100 percent for the playoffs.
By video, though, this partial muscle tear was from a direct blow and thus will have less separation of muscle fibers and a potentially quicker return.
Yes, he will likely still miss the final two games of the regular season, but this gives him a good chance to be effective for the playoffs — and potentially 100 percent for a possible rematch with the Patriots.

Best news of the morning Greek.
Looked to me at first...that the leg bent on impact.
Thought it was broken.

This seems like a pretty deep contusion / tear?
Ice, rehab, oxygen chamber.

This kid will work like nobody else to get back on the field.

Can you please take your extreme bedwetting somewhere else?

We get it- you think they're losing to Houston.

You don't have to put your nonsense in every single goddam thread.

I have the utmost confidence that this staff will have this team prepared to beat the snot out of our two remaining opponents and not have to play the WC round.

Vs. two teams who are a combined 4 and 24.

Vs. Houston who is without their best offensive player and best defensive player.
Who have been outscored 118-52 in their last 4 games.
Who have given up 30 or more in 5 of their 14 games.

Vs. Cleveland at home to secure a first round bye.

But I have also seen this play before.
Know the resume of this head coach.

Know we will go into those games with the play it safe mode.
Run ball, kill clock, win it in the 4th mentality...........

So I am not betting the house.
Not betting my car
Hell, I am not betting whats in my wallet.

But this team should be 10+ point favs in both games.....
14+ vs Cleveland
