I'm not a Steeler fan, but I have to admit they really took it to the Colts. I guess Manning is affected by pressure just like any other quarterback. I'll bet there are a few teams planning a different defense against them next year. I think Steelers vs Broncos will be a good match.

I am not a Steeler fan. But I respect Bill Cowher and the way the Steeler's organization does not give up on people.

The Detroit Lions could learn something. And a few other teams.

Since my team gave away their chance yesterday to Denver, I am officially putting my support behind Pittsburgh. 3 Reasons. They Beat the Colts. I have never forgiven the Colts for the sleazy way they snuck out of Baltimore. Some grudges were meant to be kept. My dad was from Pittsburgh, so they have always been the go to team for me when my team floundered. And I would like to see the Bus retire with at least one Super Bowl Ring. The man deserves it.

So go Steelers! This Pats fan is on board until next year.

I was a Steeler fan today only. Next week they come here for some more of what we gave the Pats.

You gave nothing to the Pats. They gave you the game. The Broncos are dead meat next week.

I used to like the Steelers in the 70's. Ever since I moved to Pennsylvania 13 years ago, I've come into close and constant contact with Steelers fans (it's always "we", not "they") - which makes me root against them - at least in the AFC playoffs. Of course if they had played the Patriots... (sorry CRUM, but enough is enough, and I'm a lifelong Bills "fan")

No apology needed. The Pats had a good run. They will be back.

I've never liked the Auxilliary Football Conference. But from what I saw on the highlights, it looks like they'll be the team that the Seahawks beat in the Super Bowl.

(Yes, I know the Seahawks used to be an AFC team, I was not a fan until a few years ago when I moved to Seattle though)

I assume you are referring to the turnovers. Thats a result of good defence and the 12th man. Anyway its game on!

Congratulations to the Steelers from a diehard Bills' fan.

I'll be rooting for the Steelers in Denver.

GO BRONCOS!

Here's a thought...

Broncos and Seahawks in the Super Bowl????

Broncos use to own the Seahawks when they were in the same Division!

Go BRONCOS!

I believe Peyton, Vanderjerk, and the rest of the Colts will now have to be crowned as the all time greatest chokers in the history of the NFL, with the possible exception of the Bills and their 4 straight SB losses. At least the Bills made it though, eh?

My prediction...Seahawks and Steelers in the Super Bowl, and the Steelers will take it home.

Minnesota Vikings are still my pick for the worst chokers in the history of ALL sports. They've lost 4 Super Bowls as well. In addition to that, since ~1990, they've lost almost every single one of their playoff games. They went 15-1 and lost in the first round (or maybe it was the second round but was their first game of that playoff year, I'm not sure if they had the bye system then).

Did you watch him fill in for the injured Davis and Foster last season? ... I'm not worried at all.
In fact, our ground attack with Goings and Hoover is still going to be alot for any team to handle... last season the two combined for over 1600 yards offense. Not too bad for a fullback and a 3rd string RB.

I didn't have much hope for the Colts to make the big show, but I didn't think they would blow up that bad. The Steelers won that one honestly. The Colts had every opportunity to come back and they blew it each time.

I am an Indy fan, but what the hell was up with the Polamalu interception call. I can't see how he didn't have control of that ball. That is one of the worst calls I've ever seen.

Denver was ok, but several of the turnovers my grandmother would have had. And she's dead.
