Morning Links (and Daily Thread)…

A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.

– OK, the first round of the playoffs starts on Saturday. Who ya got? Seahawks vs. Saints, Jets vs. Colts, Ravens vs. Chiefs, Packers vs. Eagles. Also: Which matchup would you prefer for the Steelers in the Divisional Round?

– Ben Muth from Football Outsiders with a look at the Steelers offensive line heading into the playoffs. [Football Outsiders]

– This is from a couple of days ago, but the latest Podcast from Steel Curtain Radio. [Steel Curtain Radio]

– Two words: Powerful Mojo. [Craig Wolfley]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: These plays to Mike Wallace never get old. But you know what’s surprising? 56 yards is his longest play of the year. Seems like somewhere there would have been a longer one.

    I want the Colts, Ravens, Seahawks and Packers to win.

    I think the Colts, Chiefs, Saints and Packers are going to win.

    I think we match up pretty well with the Colts so I’ll be rooting for them.


    Clots, even if they are inferior to the jets overall, I still see Sanchez as a liability instead of a cornerstone.

    Ravens, And it will be ugly, unless KC goes all Shot Gun on them, they do not stand a chance…

    Saints, only severe weather issues and some more small miracles could help out the Seahawks

    Packers, if they can be consistent throughout the playoffs, I like them to go to the SB…

    And that will bring a couple of great pairings for the Steelers, with the Colts coming to town and the Ravens taking the first chance at the Pats.

      Clots. I like that name better than the Dolts. Oh, wait, that’s SD’s name.

    Rooting for Colts-Steelers and Ravens-Patriots, the way it should be (don’t really care how the NFC shakes out). I have a ticket lined up for the AFCCG in Foxboro just in case, but I’m hoping I don’t use it.

    Saints, Jets, Ravens, Packers

    Nobody’s rooting for Kansas City to come to Pittsburgh? Or don’t believe it can happen?

    • GlennW

      Don’t believe it can happen. NYJ > IND combined with KC > BAL is about a 10-to-1 shot, so I’m “settling” for Indy as our first opponent, straight-up as the winner of the Saturday game. I’m also willing to trade off what is perhaps a slightly tougher game against Indy for New England having to face the best-of-the-rest (imo) in Baltimore. Big-picture thinking here, which is always dangerous of course. ;-)

      I would much rather play KC than IND…but more than that I would rather NE play BAL.

    Saints, Colts, Ravens, Eagles.

    How awesome would another Seahawk – Steeler Superbowl be? My brother in law would probably stop speaking to me altogether.

  • David

    I second the BAL-Patsies potential matchup.

    BTW, re-watching (& re-re-watching) that video, Burn wasn’t even at full speed. He let up at the last 25 yds. Wow.

  • EasyLikeSundayMorning

    Adam, I do think that KC can beat BAL. But after seeing the Jets get slammed by the Pats a few weeks ago, I think they’d get toasted by the Pats. The Ravens will at least put up a physical fight against the Pats. And I want the Pats to lose almost as much as I want us to win, so I hope they play BAL.

    I’m in the minority that wants to play the Pats. I’d like to knock them off ourselves and get some of our elite status and swagger back.

    Well. Let’s go Chiefs.

    Interesting news. Nnamdi Asomugha has become an unrestricted free agent. The Steelers could certainly use a pro bowl cornerback. But even if they don’t go after him, this could make holding on to Ike Taylor easier.
