Two Parts Wry Observations: Steelers vs GB

A lot of so called experts will tell you that Mike Tomlin made a foolish gamble by attempting an on-side kick with less than 4 minutes in the game when the Steelers had a 2 point lead.  Those idiots have not been paying attention.  When it happened, I liked the call.  BHC liked the call.  Troy Aikman did not.  We can forgive him, he's been hit in the head a lot.

Once again, the Steelers secondary folded like a cheap card table.  However, this time, the offense had over two minutes to drive down the field and Ben pulled another victory from his tush by hitting Mike Wallace with a tip-toe catch in the end zone.

Their playoff chances are slightly closer to slim than none.  They need to win out (slim chance), they need the Eagles to beat the Broncos (Highly likely) , New England to beat Jacksonville. (Likely), and god knows what else.  I hope that they make it.  However, when you lose to the Browns, Raiders, and Chiefs, don't be surprised when you end up staying home in January.
