So Brett Keisel shaved his beard

I fear the man in the picture below.

However the one in this picture doesn't scare me, even though it's the same man.

I hope the beard returns next season.

A day late and a dollar short - Super Bowl 45 recap

Who put that cheese wedge there???

I know, we are nearing two weeks since Super Bowl 45 and I am only now getting to my recap. I do my best to recap the Steelers game, something new I started this season. Yet, it is really hard to do when your team loses, even worse when your team gives away a Super Bowl. That's right the Steelers handed that win the Packers and you can say whatever you want you'll never change my mind on that thought. No turnovers by either team and the Steelers win that game.

The Packers played a safe game and that is all they needed to do since the Steelers fumbled and bumbled their way to losing. It really is a tough loss to swallow especially since no one expected the Steelers to be there, with Ben being out the first 4 games and a rotating offensive line. But they made it and were only down 6 points with 2 minutes left to play. I was really hoping for another last second drive, but it just wasn't meant to be.

One thing I didn't get, is that the Steelers Defense just didn't seem to adjust to the Packers offense. Just like every loss this past season for the Steelers, the defense just seemed to be normal defense and the second ranked feared defense that everyone claimed they were. They just didn't stop the Packers after those turnovers which just wanted to make me smash a lot of crap.

I have to say, I don't ever want to hear a fan of another team complain about injuries ruining their season. Both of these Super Bowl teams had a lot of injuries throughout the year, but yet made it to the big game. Although if they go to 18 games, then complain away, since that is just going to suck.

I could go on ranting, but I'm done. The pain is coming back.

Steely McGnome Predicts: Steelers vs Packers Super Bowl Edition

Oh man. Steelers vs Packers this Sunday for the Super Bowl. I'm so ready for this, I wish it were 6:30 Sunday right now. But then I would have wrote this post a few days ago. Interesting.

On paper this looks like a close match-up, but the game isn't played on paper. It's played on a field with actual people. With that in mind.

Steelers 33

Packers 17
