It's A Hard Knock Life

Joey Porter, Linebacker, THE Joe Morgan University.
"They don't want to just sit there, line up and play football," Porter told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "They want to try to catch you off guard. They don't want to play smash-mouth football, they want to trick you. ... They want to catch you substituting. Know what I mean? They don't want to just call a play, get up there and run a play. They want to make you think. They want it to be a thinking game instead of a football game."

Um, ok. Apparently playing football and using your brain are exclusive activities. And isn't this the team that runs like twelve end-arounds to Antwaan Randle El every game? Complaining about trickery seems a bit...rich.

Alas, Joey Porter has finally proven that he does not possess the ability to, how did he put it, oh yeah, "think".

Another treat from my least favourite team in the playoffs came from Mr. Roethlisomething himself. He claimed that even if the Steelers brought their A+ game, Indy would only have to play their B- game to beat them. Way to pump up your team Big Bird.

Even though I picked Pitt to win it, they really could've shot themselves in the foot. Big Ben really didn't show his trademark poise on this one.
