Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Is Playing Mind Tricks on Chiefs | heavy

“We haven’t discussed it, but I would assume as a group you understand that we probably aren’t supposed to be here,” Roethlisberger said of Pittsburgh’s playoff berth during his press conference on Wednesday, January 12. “We’re probably not a very good football team.

“ever” would be better
What I do not understand is it was a TD play, it HAD to be reviewed. They can’t get sound? Seriously? The only thing I hate almost as bad as I hate the raiders is bad officiating

I would be worried about Ben getting some calls but I figure that – He is not well liked, The game will not be close, He will struggle to get the ball near his receivers, It does not matter whether he gets calls or not.

Same here. Hopefully it’s nothing and the game is a repeat of a few weeks ago.
