AFC Championship thread

The field here at Heinz Field looks immaculate. There's a very slight wind.

As we are seeing in the NFC Championship game, things are going to come down to the talent.

The Steelers have more, in my opinion, particularly on defense.

© Will Allen, Dwyer, Butler, Chris Scott, Tony Hills, Steve McClendon and Aaron Smith are down for the Steelers.

John Conner, Gholston, Jarron Gilbert, Matthew Mulligan, Patrick Turner and Marcus Dixon are down for the Jets.

Great first half by the Steelers. Kinda took the foot off the gas in 2nd half though!! Doesnt look good for the rookie Pouncey, lets hope is gonna be alright soon!! WDE!!

Can anyone say Kugler? That's K-U-G-L-E-R, as in Sean.

I'm I the only one who thinks this guy deserves coach of the year, Mike Tomlin not withstanding, of course.

#53, we Mojinate in your honor today. Thankyou.

Thank God for Coach Tomlin.

And welcome Home Mr. Rooney.

DVE just played an interview with Pouncey. He said he has a high ankle sprain. Also said he knew it right away after having one on the other ankle in high school.

kind of dissappointing to not score a point in the 2nd half after putting up 24 in the first, but we'll save that for later.

Is Antonio Brown becoming Mr. Clutch? The return was huge and the 3rd down catch ended the game. That guy is a gamer and him, Wallace and Sanders are going to be fun to watch for awile.
