i was reading on sports illustrated today that the steelers' defense is good. something which many of us suspected. though i enjoy their number one-ness with such things as fewest yards allowed and fewest points allowed, i was actually pretty impressed by this stat: in the 2008 season, the steelers have allowed neither a 100-yard rusher nor a 300-yard passer.
that's pretty awesome.
i don't dare guess how far they'll make it this playoff season (indeed, they seem to be a better playoff team on the road than at home), but i will say they seem to live or die by Roethlisberger. so here's hoping he has a good playoff run.
update: looks like Rivers threw for 308 yards. i'll take the win :-)
