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.

– Yeah. So all of that happened. The Steelers stormed back from a 14-point halftime deficit on Saturday and beat Baltimore, while the New York Jets went up to New England and put a whooping on the Patriots on Sunday. That sets the stage for this Sunday at Heinz Field for the right to go to the Super Bowl. I don’t think I have to tell you, but I will anyway: Get excited.

– Seven lengthy thoughts on Steelers vs. Ravens [Mondesi's House]

– Put ‘em up. [One For The Other Thumb]

– Recap of the second half. [Behind The Steel Curtain]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: What has been, to this point, the biggest play of the season.

    I mentioned it on the podcast but prepare to be inundated with, “HOW WILL THE STEELERS BEAT THE NOW-MIGHTY JETS!?” Never mind that New York’s quarterback is a mental case with accuracy issues, or that Pittsburgh ran well on the Jets last time. Or, you know, that Heath and Troy didn’t play. Won’t matter. All that matters are QB wins! (Oh, wait…)

      The Jets won yesterday because of a good running game that kept Sanchez from having to do much. He won’t get that against the Steelers. Sanchez will (hopefully) be forced to pass in longer 3rd down situations. We all know and the only thing consistent about Sanchez is his inconsistency. This game will come down to which version shows up.

      Love the site by the way. I’ve been lurking on here all season and listening to the podcast. Good stuff!

      The Jets won the field postion battle yesterday just like they did with the Steelers. They will win again if they do that. I won’t even get into the turnovers. That can kill the Steelers as well. This is going to be a tough game. The Jets defense won’t allow a blowout.

      I think it is pretty funny how it seems like Ben is getting more respect from the actual players around the NFL than he gets from the media. Especially toward the end of the season. I don’t think it really affects the game any, but it is an interesting trend.

    One 6-seed will win Sunday–the Pack. The Jets, well, kind of remind me of us as a 6-seed in the XL year, but as long as Ben doesn’t turn into Jake the Snake, we should win.

    Anybody see any mention of the Ravens’ free timeout in the second half?
