Oh Rexy and your potty mouth. I’m so upset that I won’t get to listen to your big, fat, yapper for the next two weeks. Somehow, I’ll manage through it.
Yup, the J-E-T-S lost, lost, lost. They were down 24-3 at the half but they kept fighting back. You have to hand it to Rex and the Jets, they didn’t allow the Steelers in the end zone in entire second half. In fact they didn’t even allow a field goal in the second half. But on a third and six when they really needed to stop the Steelers and get the ball back, they were unable to stop them.
Roethlisberger had a terrible game with a 35.5 passer rating, no touchdowns and two interceptions. That type of performance on Sunday would have to give Pats fans a thought in their minds that the Pats could have beat Pittsburgh. But they couldn’t beat the Jets so let’s not talk about it.
The Steelers advance to the Super Bowl, again. If they win it’d be their third in six years. But who are they playing?
Who did I tell you they’d be playing? That’s right, the Packers.
Like the Steelers in the late game, the Packers enjoyed a lead heading into halftime. They were only up 14-0 but the Bears didn’t seem to get anything going on offense.
They came out in the second half and started where they left off with a three and out. Aaron Rodgers drove his team to the Bears six and was about to put the nail in the coffin of the Bears season. Brian Urlacher wasn’t ready for that to happen and picked off Rodgers. His team didn’t capitalize on the pick punting yet again after a overturned interception call on a Bears challenge.
The Bears finally pulled Jay Cutler in the third quarter. The story goes that he had/has injured ribs and Urlacher came to his defense after the game saying he’s the toughest guy he knows. That may be the case, but I think that Lovie Smith panicked and pulled Cutler. Todd Collins was the first one in and was ineffective. Then they put in third string quarterback Caleb Hanie close to the end of the third quarter and it seemed to spark the team.
Hanie was able to find the end zone making it 14-7. He got the ball back with that same score but threw a pick six to BJ Raji making it 21-7. Hanie still wasn’t done though. He drove his team down the field and made it a one score game again.
With a little less than three minutes left in the game Hanie was able to get the ball back and drive his team into the Packers territory. On fourth and five with about 30 seconds left in the game Hanie threw his second pick of the game and the NFC Champion was decided.
I went two for two with the Steelers and Packers. But I’m going to make you wait a couple weeks for the Super Bowl pick.
