    They just had completed one of the best regular seasons in NFL history, securing home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs while cultivating a healthy swagger. "We really feel like this is our year," Pro Bowl running back Jerome Bettis told me late in the 2004 season. "The Super Bowl goes through Pittsburgh."

    What went down in Steeltown three years ago doesn't necessarily mean that the Chargers can start getting their Super Bowl rings fitted, but the heavy underdogs in Sunday's AFC championship game at least can take comfort in recent historical precedent.

    Once the '04 postseason began, the 15-1 Pittsburgh Steelers suddenly looked choppy and flat. They sweated out a couple of Doug Brien missed field goals to eke out an overtime victory over the New York Jets in the divisional round, then got blown off Heinz Field by the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game, continuing an extended run of playoff futility.

    The '07 Colts, & 07' Cowboys, confirmed for me the same thing I have always thought, and the same problem that caused Pitt to lose in '04. You can't turn intensity on and off.

    In game 16 they rested their rookie QB who had 14 weeks experience in the NFL.

    Bolts, Pats, Giants, and Green bay all played to win meaningless games week 17.

    That has little to do with the story Grey, and ignores the "coincodence" factor.

    When we win on Sunday, it will have nothing to do with coincodence.
