I don't see any way the Steelers beat Denver at Mile High,,,,,,Shanny has the experience....I think the Steelers emotionally won't be able to get up on the road for two weeks in a row. I like Carolina....Delhomme to Steve Smith is gonna doom the Seaturds.

why? the Broncos only gained 286 yards on the Pats. they only had points because of Pats turnovers. the run was shut down as evidenced by them only averaging 3 ypc. The Steelers have a better D than the Pats, they will stop the Broncos on offense. On offense the Steelers don't make mistakes and can pass the ball as everyone saw last week. The Broncos don't have a chance. Peyton Manning couldn't even tell where Polamalu was on the field so what chance does Plummer have? he will be picked off multiple times

I think there will be the Broncos and Panthers in the "Superbowl!!!" Ironically, two teams of which the Dolphins beat in the regular season. Go figure!!!:eek:

It would be 3 weeks in a row as they won at Cincy. Not only could this be the first all-WC SB but both teams will have ahd to win 3 road games to get there which would be amazing.

Its pretty unlikely that both wild cards teams win this weekend. There is a reason winning three away games has never been done before and it happening twice this year alone would be shocking. Both teams have to be pretty beat up at this point, mentally and physicallly. The Steelers are coming off two emotional games and this could affect them.

Actually it has been done before and this is the 20th anniversary of it. the '85 pats won 3 road games to get to the SB before they were thrashed by Chicago.

Yeah you are right, i mixed it up a bit. No team without a home game has ever won the superbowl, have got to it.

it could happen and the way the match-ups are, I think it is a very possible thing to happen. and my boy Chris Carter agrees with me on the all wild-card superbowl

Not only all wild-card but both #6 seeds. No team has ever won 3 road games to advance to the Superbowl and there is a chance 2 teams could do it this year

Again, NE in '85 won 3 road gams to get to the SB. they lost in the SB but they got their w/ 3 road wins and jets and dolphin fans should remember since they beat both of us along the way.

I think Pitt and Carolina will both win, but how many times has Cowher been in this position before, and lost.

true but the Steelers are on the road for a first and they seem to play well in the underdog role plus they have a good match-up against a Denver team that I'm convinced is not worthy of a superbowl. Denver is clearly not the best team in the NFL, the Pats lost the game with their 5 turnovers. The Pats outgained Denver and were the better team, mistakes killed them. if Pittsburg plays mistake free and don't lose the game than they will beat Denver in a blowout

Carolina is also not a #6 seed. They were the #5.

okay don't fault me for the misunderstanding

it would be the first time a #6 seeded team wins 3 road games in fact the Steelers already broke a record. before them no #6 seeded team beat the #1 seeded team and no #6 seeded team has made it to the Championship round

why is that? do you think Carolina can't stop Alexander? do you think Seattle can stop Steve Smith? I know that the Seattle DBs (which is the weakness on the team) can't stop Smith. I also think Alexander can and will be stopped by Carolina, remember that Carolina is a top run defense.

Alexander and Smith are the keys to the game, the one that gets stopped their team will lose. You must admit that Smith has the more favorable match-up
