tomlin, patriots, and the offense

the steelers meet the new england patriots up in foxboro this afternoon, and i am looking for a big victory for the steelers, after a long 10-day break. it is crunchtime for this team, and we have got to show up and get some wins in this tough stretch to keep our hold on the division lead. there are a number of story lines going into the game, but at its most basic we need our defense to play like they have been while our offense shows some ability to move the ball, pound the rock to eat the clock, and protect both ben and the ball. if the offense shows a bit more of its potential, we win this game. and we really REALLY need to win this game.
the picture above is jack and cade with some of their cousins from central pa (calla, ty and eli). at our house, steelers spirit is essential!
one other note, if you ever doubt mike tomlin's passion as a coach, or just want to see a bit more intimate look at him than you get in the very guarded post game press conferences, just check out this video from i know he that he hasn't necessarily proved anything yet to steelers fans, but i really like our coach. i am definately a tomlin guy. when you line him up against bill belicheck, as he will be today, i would take tomlin 100 out of 100 times. hopefully the steelers win today to back me up a little!
go steelers!
