    This is gonna be a close one. Both of these teams have superior running games. Alexander and Bettis are unstoppable. Both teams have unbelievable run defense. Seattle hasn't allowed a 100 yard rush game this season. Pittsburg hasn't allowed a 100 yard rush against them in (I think) 31 games. Thats unbelievable.

    I think the Seahawks have the better offense and passing game, but I'm still picking the Steelers to win. I dunno, they just seem a little tougher.

    I think it will be very close, though.

    Very tough game to call. I like both teams.

    Pittsburgh is playing so well. They have the "home crowd" advantage.

    The Seahawks are a close knit bunch and usually find a way to win games...kinda like a certain basketball team I cheer for.

    Seahawks in a squeaker.

    Nice Try Warts, but the computer still adds up to 200%.
    I just haven't seen enough of the Seahawks to really make a good guess. But I've seen the Steelers 3 times. The Colt win was out of this world! S. Alexander is the real deal. So is BBen Roth.
    Coaching, I would say is a toss up. But I like the tricks Cowher has been using.

    I guess I'm going with the majority, because I'm taking Pittsburgh in a close one. 24-21.

    I think a lot of folks are overlooking Seattle a bit. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they pulled off an upset. It might be hard for Pittsburgh not to be a little overconfident, with everyone riding their jocks all week, and having the 'home-field advantage' and all. It could be enough to do them in.

    We'll have our answer in a few short hours. :nod:

    At least you don't suffer from split personality. Way to hold firm there.

    Refs handed that game to Pittsburgh. Except for the Parker TD run and Randle El pass, the Steelers didn't play very good.

    Kudos to Pittsburgh and their GM (a former Lion front office member).

    Well done Detroit!
    I couldn't be prouder of the home town.
    Class all the way.
    The city looked great.
    That's all...just pleased with what went down.

    Seattle blew so many opportunites this game.

    Costly penalties - several holding penalties at critical times, and the offensive pass interference on the TD.

    Bad execution - 2 straight deep balls that could have been caught inbounds and the WR couldn't keep his feet in (the 1st one much more so than the 2nd), several dropped balls by the TE.

    Bad Calls/Non Calls - there were a couple of questionable calls, 1 phantom holding call, a horse collar tackle on an Alexander run that wasn't called, chop block on Hasselback on a tackle?!?!?! All came at critical times as well and negated big plays by the Seahawks.

    I didn't really care too much who won this game, but Seattle deserved to win. They outplayed the Steelers for most of this game.

    I'm glad the Bus and Bill Cowher got their trophies though.

    Trick plays baby! Now you see the value of a Randle El.
