I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see NE losing to anyone. In addition to their normal cheating, the refs are helping them bigly. Unless that changes, no one is beating them.

Primary effect of Ravens last minute collapse is that the AFC wildcard round just became more predictable. A Ravens win and they’d have been the 5th seed, setting up an interesting matchup against KC; to my mind, a toss-up. In the other game you’d have seen Titans Jaguars; playing for a second consecutive week, advantage Jags as hometeam, but not a heavy favorite by any means. Instead, it’s Buffalo at Jacksonville, Tennessee at KC. Home teams I think are far more likely
to advance. Nothing is certain, of course, but I’d be very surprised if we aren’t looking at KC at NE and Jacks at Steelers in the divisional round.

If Tomlin had Flacco as his QB I'd bet he's out of a job some time ago.

Harbaugh has been to the playoffs once in the past 5 years (and beat PIT). Tomlin's longest drought is 2 years, though he went almost 5 years without a playoff win (gifted to us by CIN), so I wouldn't laugh at Harbaugh too much.

Oh no no no no. This is a what have you done for me lately league. Harbaugh's super bowl win was a long time ago. Lately he has sucked.

Hey, I'm only using the same criteria posters use to judge Tomlin.

If you think this year's Ravens have a better chance of wining in NE than this year's Steelers. Which I don't.


No...it means Ravens might have had a better chance of winning in NE than other teams in the Divisional Round. Probably doesn't much matter in the end, as long as Jax and KC win next week. I think KC at New England is SBI

Tomlin has beaten Harbaugh three in a row now so that monkey is off his back. Just have to take care of the Belichick bugaboo and he's home free.

I don't know Swiss..... This Rats team just let freakin Andy Dalton come from behind to beat them at home when their playoff lives were on the line.

Do you really think they could stop Brady when it mattered most? I sure don't and based on the Steelers SBI probably isn't sending Flaccp into Foxboro.

Probably not....comment was really in response to a so-called Steeler fan saying that regardless of SBI, he would always root against the Ravens. Some here have felt the same way about the Cowboys. To me, gotta go with SBI. I still think SBI was for Ravens to win, if only slightly. I saw only two teams, Chefs and Ravens, capable of beating Patriots in Foxboro during Divisional Round. Now, that field is done to only the Chefs. It would have been Chefs vs. Ravens next week though, so prob wouldn't have mattered. Ill be pissed though, if Titans beat Chefs, and go into Foxboro.

So-called?

Really, Swiss.

I would invite you to consider things in terms of SFBI, namely, in terms of quality, pleasure, and not being a pussy fan.

Your putting the priority on SFBI (which is Steelers Fan Best Interest), rather than SBI is all anyone needs to know, thus your being a so-called fan rings true. Your priority is your own entertainment, not the team's best interest going forward.

SBI is for a fresh KC team to go into Cheatsville and smack them around. Having KC engage in a bloodbath with Baltimore was not SBI since either team would have been badly beaten up. I just don't see the Titans doing much against KC.

Probably true, Franco....my objection is to the SBI-be-damned; I'm not rooting for the Ravens position.

If you were not entertained, you would not watch.

Pussy fan AND a hypocrite. My o' my!

Again....applying your standards. I guess now it's up to me to prove you wrong, Professor?

I've always said....don't really enjoy these games, suffer through and hope we're happy in the end. I know that's beyond the scope of your understanding.

Again...you're the guy that's on record as....
*NOT going all in on SBI
*Decrying Steelers play-calling, not because it wasn't effective, but because it was "boring as fuck."

SBI. Is beating the next team in front of us. Instead of worrying about some elusive monster. We should be worried about not getting another 40 burger put up on us from J Ville.

I like the Ravens loss both on a personal amusement level, and with SBI in mind. For me SBI always comes first. As I stated early on in this thread, my feeling is that the wild card AFC weekend just became a lot clearer. Avoided is a back-to-back divisional south battle and a Chiefs Ravens affair that would probably leave the winner slightly less likely to beat NE. Both of those games would have had Vegas lines way smaller than what you’ll see this weekend. And as a potential (now completely hypothetical) opponent, I’d rather play the Chiefs in the AFCCG than the Ravens. SBI in my opinion because the Ravens know us so damn well and almost a given it would be a field goal game. Now it’s all fucking moot anyway.

Unrealistic SBI at this point are upsets by the Titans and Bills, with the Bills going to NE, kicking some patriot ass and visiting us at Heinz for a trip to the Super Bowl. More realistically: come up with a sound game plan for Jacksonville, stay healthy through that game, then go up to NE and beat those motherfuckers by knowing you can do it, and calling plays that show you’re not afraid. In closing, SBI now that I’m most worried about is not any particular opponent, but one particular leg.

Well said, Will....and I'm going to predict a two-score Steelers win in Foxboro. I've got to believe that Tomlin will have learned his lesson, will keep his foot on the gas, and wouldn't be totally surprised to see Steelers ahead by three scores sometime during that afternoon....I'm going with a 31-17, 31-20, 28-17 win...something on that order.

Still not ruling out Chefs beating Pats in Foxboro....SBI article will soon follow.

I don't see the Chiefs going into cheat stadium and pulling off a win. I guess it's not impossible but likely improbable. This is one the Steelers have to Take Care of Themselves I'm thinking. SBI is winning the next game in front of you. Well said, Tundralag.

I think for KC/Tenn that the determination for winning may be which team/players are better dealing with extreme cold. This weekend will seem warm compared to what's go to be happening in the Midwest next weekend.


Posted this on the other OP....forecast I'm looking at has high temp. of 39, mostly sunny, in KC next Saturday.

Not quite agreeing with that assessment. Just because it's unlikely doesn't mean we can't root for AFCCG to be in Heinz, most likely opponent being the Chefs. It would certainly be in Steelers Best Interest (SBI) for that to occur.
