Steelers Peaking!!!!!!!!!

Post by Stephen Montague Beld » Tue, 06 Dec 1994 07:45:46


Back to back IMPRESSIVE victories on the road leave the
Pittsburgh Steelers in terrific shape for home field advantage
throughout the playoffs.  They managed to win ugly early in the
season but now have all cylinders working.  Can anybody, AFC or
NFC, defeat this mega-talented team?  Perhaps not.  As
expected, Blake faltered against the Pitt D, and Mr. All-World
Rod Woodson lived up to his billing with an INT return TD.  Bam
Morris was impressive as always.

I hope this crunching win will silence the QB controversy as
O'Donnell did what he's done all year- not make mistakes.  The
rest of the team is just all playing supurb.  O'Donnell can and
will lead this team to Miami.

Cleveland is currently losing, which would be a nice bonus, and
the Chargers play the prime-time great Raiders on Monday night,
but Pittsburgh determines its own fate- those games would just
make things easier.  With the very soft Eagles in town next
week, Pitt is looking great.  I just hope the back to back
physcial finales against two other very solid squads won't bang
up Pitt too much for the playoffs.  In any event, the week's
rest for the top 2 seeds will certainly help things.  And
Foster will be well well rested.  

I say BRING IT ON... "all you got, George!"

Good, because you want to peak in January and not December :)
The Steelers are getting themselves into position to peak.  Whether they do
it or ***(see '92) is another story.

What an Excellent piece of journalism your post is. The
Pittsburgh Steelers do seem to be peeking at the right time. As
I sat and cheered my boys from Steele town USA (and I said Boys
on purpose Dallas. History shall repeat itself if you decide to
challenge us) during the lean years I would reflect back to the
great years for comfort of the losses and reflect to the future
when that got old. However, Those years didn't last long as we
have been spottted in the playoffs quite frequently. But we were
not the powerhouse that we once were and to watch Dallas get
there (although it was ok with me because I like JJ's coaching
style... not the owner) caused me to wish for those days ever
more. But now the time has arrived. The profecy shall once
again be fulfilled and the One for the thumb gang can break out
the terrible towel. We flubbed this is not the same team. I
will watch with joy as the Pittsburgh Steelers triumphantly
walk into the winners circle again. Peace!!!

Yup!  Merely ordinary teams, like the Pats and Broncos who have
stepped it up as of late, are forced to reflect on what might have
been, forever debtors to their early season losses.  But the
Steelers, while taking needless criticism from the media,
managed to win while playing less than their true potential.
That's the mark of a champion.

Very poetic!  History does manage to repeat itself, doesn't
it?  How ironic it will be when Pittsburgh's last game of the
1994 season is a brutal payback for what happened in their very
first game of the season.

True.  It's been frustrating these last couple years because
you could see the budding of a dy***, a true championship
caliber team, but they never got over the hump.  The major
difference in this team is the pass rush.  For this team to
lead the league in sacks is remarkable considering the problems
they've had in the past putting pressure on the QB.  Kevin
Greene is the Steeler's version of Charles Haley, and those
types of players are rare gems.

Everything is in place.  To win in the NFL you must physically
dominate the opponent.  Dallas does this.  Pittsburgh does
this.  Track and field teams are forever doomed.  What a
historic Super Bowl it'll be if these powers clash!

Whenever a team controls BOTH lines of scrimmage in the NFL for
two weeks in a row, on the road at that, and wins by 18 and
then 23 points, I call that domination.  I call that peaking,
especially if you've followed this exciting Steeler team
throughout the year.  They beat teams up- they shove the ball
down their throats.

Yes it is.  50-14... 38-15... what's the difference?  Both wins
were equally impressive.

        Since when is 38-15 not a blowout?  The Steelers
have won five in a row and 8 of 9.  Are you implying that
the Steelers aren't peaking?  That's a fun thought...you'd
better hope that they are peaking now, or else it's going
to get *real* ugly when the do peak.  
        Why so much aggression and defensiveness
against a measly AFC team?  Certainly they can't challenge
the NFC for the Lombardi trophy, so what's the worry?  They
can't, can they?  Well, can they?????  Rod?  Rod?  I hear
you, Rod...

The difference is that the Falcons were 6 and 6 going into the game,
while the Bengals were 2 and 10.

It is not a blowout unless a) the Niners do it or b) the
Cowboys do it. :) The Steelers are pretenders along with all
the other AFC teams. It is a moot point because the NFC will
reign surpreme in the SB, i.e., business as usual. Enjoy your
wins and "peaks" while you can. NOTICE: no agression or
defensiveness, just plain cold facts. :) :) < smileys!!!

I agree that they are peaking.  They are certainly the best team in the
AFC.  After watching the Chargers played tonight, the Chargers are not any
where close to the Steelers.  In fact no other teams in the AFC have played
consistent football in the last 8 weeks.  Miami looked like a really good
team, but the loss to Buffalo prove that they can't win against a good team.
KC looks like they're going downhill.  Denver and the Raiders might be the
teams that are starting to peak.  I think the Raiders will win the
West.  Miami will hold on to the division.  Pittsburgh will runaway with
the Central.

Bengals were 2-2 in their last four and so were the Falcons.  The Bengals had
also played better teams very tightly in their losses (Dallas, Denver)

If they played now, it would be 40-8 the other way. Won't that be
fun if the Eagles meet the Niners in the playoffs? We'll see how
useful it is to peak in the first month of the season.
