Feeling the Heat in Indy

They're starting to poop their pants...

[quote]To start, there's a very ominous comparison to be made here, one that popped into my head just about the time the veil of invincibility fell on Coach Hoodie's embarrassing pom-pom ski hat:

TPFFFB are the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers all over again.

» They have the same run-first, defense-heavy style of play.

They are a sixth seed.

» They had to play all the way to the end to earn a playoff spot on the final day of the season.

» They feature a second-year quarterback, Joe Flacco, who managed the Ravens to the AFC title game one year ago. In 2005, Ben Roethlisberger was a second-year player who had taken the Steelers to the AFC Championship Game as a rookie.

Feeling queasy yet?

Most important, though, TPFFFB is a very good team that is getting better. Their running game has improved since the Colts held them to 98 yards rushing Nov. 22. They have linebacker Terrell Suggs back in the lineup; he didn't play in the game against the Colts. They also have Suggs and Ed Reed together on the field, something they didn't have between Nov. 16 and the last game of the regular season.
