going to stay in watch old football games on this web site and since I'm an old man I'm going to sit around and bitch about Tomlin and wish for the glory days of "the chin" which never really existed.  But old guys can get away with that

Laugh

But there WERE glory days of "The Chin." 

Among my favorites right here: 2005 AFC Wildcard Steelers 31 at Bengals 17

This one is pretty darn fun, too: 1992 Steelers 29 at Oilers 24

Absolutely.  Thumbsup In my opinion, that was the greatest win of Cowher's coaching career. The Super Bowl win was more important, but the win over Indy had to happen first. It was a perfect storm of brilliant preparation and coaching by Cowher and outstanding execution by the team. Even horrific calls by the referees and the biggest gaffe of Bettis' career couldn't undo the superb job the coaches did that day. 

When you think about it, even Ben's miraculous tackle was the result of excellent coaching and perfect execution. Ben was prepared, knew exactly what to do... and he did it.

I really am being 100% serious on that tackle. Ben did EXACTLY what he'd been coached to do. He executed the way he'd prepared in practice. Was there luck involved in actually making the tackle? Yes. But he was in position to make it because of coaching and execution.
