They are thrilled to play the Steelers in the first round.... saying it will be a cake walk...?
Steelers have not lost to a team twice in a season in Pittsburgh in their existance and are 16-7 in home playoffs game since 1970.
Ill say this much the Jags might indeed win this game no doubt, but if their fans or the Jags team think the Steelers are going to be anyones stepping stone, they have another thing coming. The steelers and Parker were able to run the ball against them so I want to see the tides turn and the Steelers run all over and control the clock this time. If it comes down to qb play im taking Big Ben anyday. It will be a very good game and a very good warmup game to get the playoff juices flowing! This is where Ben is going to make his imprint on the game..2007 playoffs!
Can the Steelers beat Jax? Sure, with Ben, they can score plenty of points, if they get a lead and Garrard has to beat them, he could easily throw a lot of picks. Pittsburgh is still very tough at home. But, is there a good possibility of a repeat of the last game? Absolutely. Since Aaron Smith went down, the Steelers have not shown the ability to stop the run, vs Jax, vs StL , vs Balt. This D prided itself on being run stuffers, no-one gets 100 yds on us. The abrupt change in this the last few weeks, may well have shaken their confidence. And I wonder if they can get it back.
