    It will be a good game, and I cant wait to see how our future coaches gameplan for such a big game.

    It just hit me that I've been in both of these stadiums (Invesco and Qwest) in the past two seasons. What does that have to do with anything? Nothing, other than Qwest gets the nod over Invesco. Both are beautiful stadiums.

    On the other hand, maybe I need to do a little Qwest/Invesco karma ceremony in the Reliant parking lot before week 1 next season. That plus Kubiak and we can't lose.

    Go Steelers so we can get on with it...

    Looks like it will be the battle of the ground games - Denver had two backs over or close to a 100 yards and the Steelers still have the Bus. He's from Detriot so I guess he'll be pumped even more than usual.

    So is today the day we get our new HC? Personally I'm pulling for PIT (has nothing to do with Kubiak).

    Pulling for the Steelers b/c of Kubiak and Bettis. Although I wouldn't be mad if the Broncos won.

    If Kubiak weren't involved, I'd pull for Pittsburgh anyway.

    Well, I was just thinking that luck was on the Steelers' side today, but I was proven wrong very quickly.

    Does security at any point during the game get to watch it? It's like they are all busy mean muggin' the crowd. I know they've got a job to do. Just wondering.

    I don't think they ever get to turn around.

    One of my former students worked field security for the Texans and they were not supposed to turn around unless something happened on the field in their area of coverage. He generally saw plays here and there with the slight turn around or out of the corner of his eye.

    Roethlisberger impresses me everytime I see this guy play. Looks like we may hav a coach soon with the way this is going.

    This goes to show you how little things can effect a game. Early on if Champ Bailey catches the ball for the INT, momentum changes. PIT gets and INT, goes down and scores. All of a sudden this great matchup is getting lopsided. Lets see how Kubiak handels halftime adjustment.

    I will have to see the highlights, but I thought Ward tipped the ball slightly enough to mess up the play.
