'Like a knife through...steel?'

From today's Boston Globe, Bob Ryan (my favorite sportswriter!) on 'Big Ben' Roethlisberger versus the Patriots:
"But that was then, and this is now. Roethlisberger has been stagnating for a month, and no sooner had he posted a hideous quarterback rating of 57.8 during that fortuitous triumph over the Jets Saturday night than the first e-mail arrived at the morning paper demanding that coach Bill Cowher replace him with Tommy Maddox. Roethlisberger had a very rough night, underthrowing, overthrowing, and throwing behind people. Now he must face Belichick and Romeo Crennel in full playoff laboratory madness. Do the Steelers really think he is ready for this?"

I really think the Pats have a shot. Imagine, World Series and Super Bowl in the same sports season. (Shiver) Those words would never have come out of my mouth if I were still a superstitious Sox fan, cause that would be bad luck, and then..and then...aggh!!! What have I done????
