Steelers @ Broncos wildcard playoff preview

I voiced that I was rooting for Tebow to prove all the doubters wrong all season as I do with most rookies who come in to the league with questions about them being able to play in the NFL. When guys like Luck come in with all these high expectations....I don't really root for. I laughed and called both botch kicks. I wouldn't have mentioned this of course if either would have been in. In either case, all great things must come to an end.
It has come down to this....the AFC West champion in the San Diego Chargers led by their elite qb Philip Rivers. EmbarassedCry

^I hate typos....let me try again. It has come down to this........the AFC West champion in the Denver Broncos led by Tim Tebow will matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers led by their elite qb Ben Roethlisberger.

I've heard several statements about Mendenhall's injury and how the Steelers won't be able to play well without him. For the idiots believing that garbage who watch TV to figure out who to pick for the pro bowl, who is the elite qbs, who is the best teams, and so on. Thank goodness, I'm here to share my wisdom with all of you because most of you would be brainwashed into believing nonsense. Nonsense like Haynesworth/Ocho Cinco were great acquistions for the Pats during the offseason, believing that the Steelers would not make the playoffs after a quarter of the season has been played, and I could go on. He isn't top 20 in any category and somehow he is the reason Steelers can't make a playoff run in the playoffs? Really? I'm sure those 60 yards per game will be missed....not!! Redman rushed for like 97 yards vs the Browns after he went down. 2 count'em 2 100 yard rushing games for Mendenhall this year. Jonathon Dwyer who has had like 20-30 rush attempts this year has 1 and he is on the Steelers as well. For anyone to believe Mendenhall's performance have played a huge factor in Steelers offense this year hasn't watched many games at all. Ben and the passing game has carried the offense all year long. Mendenhall has done jack besides run TDs in after the passing game takes them down in the redzone. At times, ground game couldn't even get it in vs the Browns defensive line. By the way, Browns are one of the worst at stopping the run. Here are some stats for you:

The Steelers placed starting running back Rashard Mendenhall on injured reserve this week after he tore his ACL. Statistics say Pittsburgh's running game will be more explosive without him. Since the start of 2010, Mendenhall averaged 3.9 yards per carry, the fifth worst among the 28 players with at least 300 rushes in the past two seasons (according to ESPN S&I). Isaac Redman, who is expected to replace Mendenhall, is averaging 4.5 yards per carry over that span. Mendenhall also had the second fewest yards after contact (1.6 per carry) among running backs with at least 200 carries. The rest of the Steelers averaged 2.6 yards after contact.

I have no doubt in the Steelers defense vs the Broncos this week. My one concern if I had one would be Tebow can run the football. Seneca Wallace did good when his receivers weren't open and was able to create big yardage on the ground because of it. That is virtually the only concern is that Tebow can make plays with his feet. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be.......STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

Deserved praise and criticism week 5 2011

This series was created for the purpose of showing my critics I give praise to other football teams. I refused from the beginning to not have the Steelers part of this series because of being criticized for being a homer. I'll stick with that through out. Time to give praise and critic other football teams besides my favorite.


1.Al Davis/Raiders
-I was never a big fan of the Raiders. Not a big fan of any players on their football teams(exception McFadden). I was proud of the Raiders for pulling out that huge win for Al. I do wish the team well going forward. I want the Raiders to win the division this year for Al Davis. The story would just be tremendous. My bias towards rooting for Tebow to do well will not hurt the Raiders. Still proud to say the Raiders are undefeated in division play since Campbell came in. Prove them wrong!! RIP Al Davis

2.TEBOW TIME!!-I told you all Kyle Orton was over-rated. People bash Tebow for his accuracy when Orton is still one of the worst in the league. He lost his job and Tebow almost made Rivers have a heart attack. Tebow came in and led that football team. The sounds in that stadium was tremendous. An atmosphere, he created by the confidence he brought in with him. It would have been awesome to see that comeback win, but it didn't happen unfortunately!! Happy for Tebow and hope he proves the doubters wrong.

3.Vikings/All Day-Got their first win of the season and kept the lead!! Cards keep proving me right.

4.Saints/Brees/Panthers-It seems I have the Panthers on here every week. I am stunned by the way they have kept competitive in ball games. Deserve a lot of credit for getting the lead vs the Saints. I have been very hard on Brees and the Saints. Way more hate than they deserve. Saint fans and Brees, I apoligize. He truly is an elite quarterback in this league and I wish Brees and the Saints well going forward. I felt it needed to be said and I have felt this way since the game where I rooted for Brees and the Saints to win. I've been way too harsh towards the organization and the Saints. I said NFC Champs before the season began. Hope you prove me right! Again, I apoligize!

5.Packers/Lions-Undefeated through 5 weeks. I know both were expected to play well, but they deserve a ton of credit for their teams performance thus far. Calvin Johnson is currently my pick to win the MVP award with Rodgers a close 2nd. Both have played fantastic. Praise is well deserved!!

*Bonus: Seahawks-I think this was deserved after their performance vs the Giants. Know they won't be on here that often if they live up to my expectations. Congrats on the upset and huge victory.


1.Bucs-What happened? 3-48 loss to the 49ers. I had Bucs as the last team eliminated to miss the playoffs. Maybe it was the schedule. It seems like when they don't run the football effectively, the team struggles. I think Freeman needs better weapons. Picking the Saints to win the AFC South looks good right now! Again....thank you Falcons for keep proving me right!!

2.Jags-What is up with that? You have the lead and lose it? C'mon man!! Now Bengals look like they may start 5-2!! I bet Carson Palmer is happy!!

3.Colts lose lead-24-7 was when I said, Colts are gonna get their first victory. 28-24 was the final score....What happened? Chiefs ground game is non-existant. All they have is a passing game right now. I can't believe it! Colts will not have the worst record in the league o!!

4.Matt Schaub-With Texans being good they are getting more exposure nationally. That isn't good for Schaub because he is nothing, but a product of AJ and Arian Foster. He isn't an elite quarterback. He is worse than Romo and Rivers!!

5.Vick-Last season, I was rooting for Vick to be successful. He was, but this year.....he isn't looking too good. Dream Team comment probably killed this football team. I knew they would struggle early due to new coaches, but.....they have got to play better in all phases. It feels like in Philly they have too many personalities to deal with. VY obviously, Jackson wanting his pay check, and player playing with far more confidence. I don't know what it is, but they can't stop the run with those linebackers. That with the interception and turnovers. I had Eagles get the final wildcard spot with Lions/Packers getting #5.It looks if the playoff door is closing on the Eagles quickly. They gotta step it up!!
