Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 300 yards and five touchdowns, while running back Le’Veon Bell, just returning following a three-game suspension, rushed for 144 yards, in a 43-14 drubbing of the Chiefs at Heinz Field back on October 2. That was a long time ago, obviously, but is it long enough to make up 29 points? Kansas City is mostly average statistically–including 24th, overall and 26th against the run. What that should tell you is that, as long as Pittsburgh can protect the football, yards and points should be there for the taking.

As for the defense, again, it was a long time ago, but Pittsburgh’s pass rush, which barely registered a pulse over the first three games, sacked quarterback Alex Smith four times on October 2. Much like their defense, the Chiefs offense, ranked 20th, overall, isn’t much to write home about. Sure, there are weapons in all-world tight end Travis Kelce, along with Hill, who also caught 61 passes for 593 yards as a multi-faceted Slash-like threat, but Kansas City’s offense doesn’t possess enough fire power to blow the Steelers out.

Therefore, as long as the Steelers improving defense tackles in the open field and perhaps manages a turnover or two, this could be the recipe for a big playoff road victory.

Most of us are lucky enough to have the next day off so get your Black n’ Gold on and get on down to Hibernia and start waving those towels, this will be Epic.

Steelers V Dolphins

It’s officially crunch time. Win or go home. The Steelers host the Miami Dolphins today in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs. These teams met once previously this season and the result wasn’t good for the Black-and-Gold.

DSC02597 believe the Steelers will get this win. The X-factor for Pittsburgh is two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Throughout his career, Ben has been able to put the team on his shoulders and lead them to victory. The stage is set, and it’s not too big for the man fans lovingly refer to as Big Ben. His experience and leadership at this point in his career are paramount to his team. That being said, unless all of the men on the field know their assignments, stay in their lanes and make plays, the Steelers could be watching the remainder of the playoffs instead of winning them. Each game is for all the marbles from here on out. The Steelers certainly are talented enough to take all the marbles. All they need to do is to play smart and play great team football.

Preseason Football and NFL Pool

Almost there, after months and months and months of waiting, the regular season is in sight. While I’m hesitant to wish away the last few weeks of summer, the football drought has gone on far too long.
The Steelers first game is against the Washington Redskins in their backyard, FedEx Field on September 12th at 7:10pm ET. It’s our first Monday night game of regular season but first we must finish out preseason, after a solid win last night against the Saints, we should have a decent test ahead of us when we take on the Panthers in Carolina for our last “practice” game on Thursday, September 1st at 7:30pm ET.

Also we will be running our Hibernia elimination football pool, 20pts per entry, pick one team each week, no repeat picks, tie is a push, last man standing takes all…….simples……get your name and your points in and good luck.
