Broncos v/ Steelers: Looking Forward to a Great Game (Updated)
I don’t have any idea who is going to win this game, although I have an obvious bias for the Broncos, so I won’t be offering any predictions except this: this should be one of the best games of the year. Two great defenses, two aggressive running games, two shaggy quarterbacks, and two coaches coming off of great seasons.
What I expect today is a defensive battle with bruising hits, fast play, and the occasional big play when a defense gets caught being overly aggressive. Both of these teams blitz heavily, taking big chances in hopes of forcing turnovers, pressuring quarterbacks, and shutting off the opponent’s rushing attack. Both of these teams have players who can exploit little mistakes. Both of these teams have experience winning ugly.
Yeah, this is why I love football.
Update: Or I could be wrong. Ouch.
Al Wilson and Trevor Pryce have been non-factors, the Steeler’s offense has been brilliant, and Jake’s two turnovers didn’t help our cause.
