I was channel surfing last evening and came across NFL Network showing the 2005 AFC Divisional Playoff between our Steelers and the Colts. We had some fun discussions via twitter with some of our followers and a couple of them mentioned one of the things I was thinking...the 2nd half Steelers need to play like the first half.
Some things never change I guess but damn I would be nice wouldn't it? To see our team play great in the first half and then not start giving the game away in the 3rd and 4th quarter. To see them put the pedal to the metal on offense, the bring the heat on defense, being aggressive across the board. We damn near lost that game; if Vanderjact doesn't miss that FG with only seconds left there's no guarantee we win it in OT?
Cowher did run the ball tremendously in the second half, both Bettis and Parker along with the OL blocked their tails off but ultimately things got out of hand because they sat on the lead.
We see it every year and every year I say to myself, it's going to be different now..but it never is...
