Like, far and away the Steelers' most complete game of the year. The offensive line was unrecognizable -- it was stunning to see what Roethlisberger and Parker were capable of with timeandspace.

Tomlin is a significantly more aggressive playoff coach than Cowher. Plus he calls the playoffs "elimination football" which is awesome.

It's gotta be tough for the Chargers to gut out all these playoff wins but then be without their star players in the games of great import.

It's Not Easy To Beat A Team Three Times In One Season, but someone also told me that A Rookie QB Has Never Blah Blah Blah.

Yeah, about that...

EDIT: I'm guessing Roger Goddell's doing backflips of joy right about now, with the Steelers moving on. Had the Chargers won, next week would have seen two shitty west coast champions hosting two #6 seeds. I'm sensing great relief within the NFL brass.

I don't think I agree with your logic here. San Diego is a very popular team, whereas the Steelers were part of one of the least-watched Super Bowls in recent history just a couple of years ago. Strictly from a ratings perspective, if I was in the NFL offices, I would have been rooting for the Chargers.

It was during a game last season that I noticed that Rothlisberger does this thing where he looks the defense off on one side of the field and then turns and heaves it down the other side. I've seen other QBs do this, but not as quickly as Ben does and definitely not as deep as he goes with it. It's like he doesn't even take time to find his receiver and make sure he's on route, he just turns and fires, and he does it with very good accuracy. He did this once or twice in yesterday's game and it's astonishing that he can have such success with it.

Also, he's a pretty keen punter.

I think those numbers show that the participants don't matter. Other than Super Bowl 39 (New England vs. Philadelphia), the viewers have gone up every year no matter who's playing.

Now, It's False was talking about the Conference Championships. Maybe those ratings are more dependent on the teams participating.

Damn, I was hoping the Chargers would pull this out. It's amazing how much easier they are to root for with Shawne "Steroids" Merriman out.

Can someone please pull that fork out of Tomlinson's back?

I STILL say they'll find a way to beat Houston. But then again, this is the Bengals, so they'll probably go 0-11 and then win 4 out of their last 5, just so they can ruin their draft position.
