Steelers passed over in NFL Playoffs

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a huge hill to climb in the NFL Playoffs.

They couldn’t get over the first mound.

Their NFL top-ranked pass defense was shredded yesterday by Tim Tebow, a quarterback many left for dead by experts.

Denver’s game plan was to hope for one big pass play to overcome a defense that stacked eight or nine players on the line of scrimmage.

They got five over 30 yards.

The Steelers fought hard to come back despite many injuries, but it wasn’t enough.

Hats off to Denver. They played well and deserved to win.

A RODDY CHRISTMAS – I’m not a fan of wrestling, but I always liked Roddy Piper. Here is a great blog from the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show, complete with a video of Piper singing Christmas carols. Classic.
