Haha Well obviously its good the Steelers can take a well needed week off to rest up and better prepare for whoever the upcoming opponent is, but we all know the Steelers play well under pressure and on the road. sh!t they are road warriors man. Home field advantage throughout the playoffs is supposed to be a good thing and I'm not saying it isnt, but tell that to last years team who lost to the Jags twice in Pittsburgh...and the bye week is good for getting healthy and rested, but not so good for staying in rythme, which is exactly what the Steelers are in right now, a win streak. The 05 Steelers & the 07 Giants are great examples of the "hard way" but it doesnt get any sweeter then that does it?! Now that we are the #2 seed and playing Tennessee next week, the #1 seed, there's no doubt we're playing for that #1 spot. Home field advantage will be good when the Steelers play the Colts again, because I dont think we want to see the Colts in that dome, but teams like the Jets, Patriots, Dolphins, Broncos even the RAVENS can get beaten where ever we play.
I'm all for the Bye and the Home field Im coming out for the AFC championship game if its in Pittsburgh lol, but I still say it has its advantages and disadvantages.
