It could be epic. I can already taste it.

My mindset has dramatically changed on the 2017 Steelers and our chances vs the Patriots. I can't wait to see that game (if it happens).

I really believe we can go there and win.


I believe you’re right. But I’m still not sure how I’ll be able to sleep the night before.

This has, indeed, reached epic proportions, if it wasn’t already there.

An unprecedented amount of drama surrounding this team. Closest I can think of in sports might actually be the ‘78 Yankees.


If Beth’s idea of a scripted NFL is true, the AFCCG WILL feature the Steelers and the Patriots.

Seriously...what other teams would have the cachet to make the AFCCG an Event of Epic Proportions?

With the now added drama of James Harrison playing for his Arch Enemy?

That there is some showmanship. I’ll even wager they’ll let the AFCCG be the prime time matchup again, even though it’s the NFC’s turn.

From the perspective of depth at pass-rusher/OLB, it could end up being a mistake. From the perspective of potentially handing the Pats a pass-rusher they lacked, similar to how the Browns handed Haden over, (Harrison's effectiveness yet unknown) it could be a mistake.

But barring that (and related to this thread), I could see this team rallying around the "doom and gloom" of fans/media. The players' heads seem to be where they were at after the loss to Pats...it's one thing giving me cautious optimism. I can envision Watt and Dupree, and other guys on D, playing with a chip on their shoulders.

Just stay away from the injury bug.

Especially since the caption that went with the photo was a dig at the youth on the Steelers...or could be interpreted as such.

“Finally...a teammate who’s older than me”.

I hear you brother

But the cool thing is, the trouble sleeping will be due to really believing we can go there and win. We know this team has an opportunity and can tangibly do something about it.

I will be amped up for that game out of my freakin' skull if it happens. :D

All that, and I totally forgot Martavis Bryant requesting a trade and having to be talked down from the ledge.

And if it's Steelers-Patriots in the AFCCG, it will be '74 AFCCG redux....all the way down to..."The best team in football is in this room."

LMFAO.

But was I the only one that raised an eyebrow over Steeler fans burning their jerseys? I didn't think the yinzers had any gear left after the Anthem debacle :lol:

Notice it all started with Ben retirement. Thought then it was Ben serving notice he wasn't getting beat up to be Brady and NE's foil. This morphed into steelers going full-on WWE, the new nfl script. "This what you want, ok, we'll play along."

Ben said he wanted to get some reps against Cleveland too and Tomlin said no - add some more drama because of this if he comes out cold - this will heat up too.
