    Fair enough. But, when I look at Strength of Schedule, you guys finished with the 2nd easiest schedule in the league, AND STILL DIDN'T WIN YOUR DIVISION!

    Take a look at common opponets during the regular season - that would be interesting. For example, you both played the Pats and Jets. :D

    Your information is wrong.

    NFL Strength of Schedule for 2010-2011 NFL Regular Season

    Packers and Steelers are tied.

    BACK to the topic of PHYSICAL.The Pack is in the top 5 physical teams.Watch out for Heath Miller,Matt Spaeth and Ward blocking the Packers undersized line backers on the edges clearing the way for Mendenhall.Your line backers are good,but undersized.Heath Miller had a great game with Mathews covering him also!!!

    2nd easiest in the league? You have anything to back that up? Who was the first? The Bears?

    I have a hard time believing we had the second easiest schedule in the league considering we had to go to Philly, to New England, to Atlanta, to NY Jets, played the 11-5 Bears twice, played the Giants, who had at the time probably the best pass rush in the league, etc...

    We also were missing our QB for 2 games (He wasn't right for the Washington game) and put 15 however many on IR.

    Not saying the Steelers didn't experience difficulties and obstacles during the season, but you seem to enjoy belittling everything the Packers do, and refuse to give credit, as a Homer would.

    Truth is, what they've gone through, to end up where they are at this point is nothing short of amazing. Going on the road in the playoffs and beating the #1, #2 and #3 seeds is no easy task, as Steelers fans know.

    If you honestly think that the Steelers will roll the Packers with no resistance and that we are not even in your league, you are sorely mistaken.

    But I can't tell if you really think it, or if you're just trying to start **** like most of the other Steeler fans who have migrated over this week to our forum...

    The Packers FINISHED, not started with the 2nd easiest schedule in the league, and they finished that schedule 10-6. The Steelers had the 9th easiest schedule and we finished 12-4. Sorry, but those are the facts. We had a bit tougher schedule, and finished +8 games ahead over our losses, the Packers had the 2nd easiest schedule after the Saints and finished +4 games ahead of their losses.

    Thats funny actually, because against quality(teams with winning records) opponents the Steelers went 3 and 4 while the Packers went 4 and 3.

    In those games the Steelers averaged 19.0 and gave up 18.6.
    The Packers averaged 21.7 and gave up 15.9

    Were better against quality teams than you are. Sorry but those are the facts. :)

    Are you trying to tell me your team is on the level of those teams? What kind of fan are you?

    Well, if Miami isn't a quality opponent, then why did the Steelers only beat them by 1 lousy point? You guys should have beaten them by at least a TD.

    How come the Steelers only beat the Buffalo Bills by 3? You guys should have beaten them by at least 2 TDs, maybe more.

    Huh.

    That Buffalo game was lost by an incompetent receiver who dropped the game winner wide open in the endzone lol

    Apparently the Dolphins just don't know how tough the Steelers are. The refs understand this, therefore they get the benefit of any doubt.

    Shush now. That vaunted Steel Curtain used it's Magic Mojo™ to cause that. That was totally the Steeler D that won that game. For reals.

    Yeah, that's true.

    Actually, the more I think about it, I'm not even sure why we should show up, I mean we don't stand a chance against that unstoppable force that is the Pittsburgh Steelers :banghead:
