2009 "Blackened Gold" award winning story
Looking out my office window here at the "Black and Gold" headquarters, the weather is cold, snowy and there should be more of the same for the next few days. Not a good environment to play in if you're a west coast-based football team that's used to playing in the 70s.
ABOVE: All-time great, Terry Bradshaw, never let snow get the best of him.
Statistically, the Steelers have already missed out on their worst part of the playoffs, the Wildcard round. Odds are 2-1 that they will again win in the Divisional Playoff round if you subscribe to using the past as a barometer for future events. What doesn't look good are our chances in the AFC Championship round. At best, we're less than a tossup to win that game. But if we can clear that hurdle, then break out the silver polish, because we'll be needing it for that sixth trophy as the Steelers own a superb .833% winning record in "The Biggest Game".
