    History on Steelers side going into Atlanta

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06295/732008-66.stm


    Sunday, October 22, 2006

    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers play today in Atlanta or, as it should be known to them, their land of milk and honey. They have played the Falcons 13 times and lost to them once, way back in 1970 when Terry Bradshaw was a rookie.

    Over the ensuing years, the teams have played 10 times, and the Falcons have managed a tie to go with nine losses.


    Only two NFL teams have gone longer without a victory against an opponent: the St. Louis/Arizona Cardinals have not beaten the Denver Broncos, and the New York Jetshave not beaten the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Their dominance over Atlanta is one thing, but the Steelers are on a pretty good run against the entire National Football Conference. They have won nine games in a row against NFC teams, including their Super Bowl victory against Seattle.
    Let's hope we can continue this historical trend and get back to .500 this weekend !

    If our guys play even CLOSE to the way they played against the Chiefs, we should have this one in the bag.

    Hey Capt, did you remember AJ COLBY on FOX 8 at the time, the stupid *** cut into the game with a severe weather alert? Plaxico was going for the catch and they cut right into it. I WAS SO PISSED AT FOX 8, I got on the phone and cussed them out. I remember how warm it was that day, it was in the mid 70s, Indian Summer, and my wife and I's First Anniversary too. I will never forget that game ever. That went down as the dumbest cutin in Cleveland Television History, AJ COLBY got fired the next day for it too.

    No kidding I still can't believe there was no flag. That was helmet to helmet. I know Batch came in and played great. But the Steelers are a completely different team when Big Ben is under center and playing well. Ben makes this team go and if he would have finished. I'm sure the Steelers would have won today.

    Ben was on fire, he carried a perfect 158.3 passer rating today the entire game up until he got knocked out.
