Gentle Ben Will Lead Us to Victory

Ben Roethlisberger has only been with the Pittsburgh Steelers for two seasons, but in that time he has become the team’s strongest leader. The Steelers are in a great position having won three straight end-of-season games. They have shown that they have the talent to advance far in the playoffs and beat any team they encounter. No matter what happens we know that we have the stuff to carry on winning into next season if we keep most of our key players and beef up out lineup in the off season. Roethlisberger will be the key to our success and is the man we want leading this team for a long time to come.

Pro Bowl Selections Made

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be sending four players to the 2006 AFC Pro Bowl team. The men will be offensive guard Alan Faneca, Troy Polamalu safety, linebacker Joey Porter and center Jeff Hartings. For five seasons we have sent at leas three players to the Pro Bowl and that is something to be proud of. Since the fans get to vote for the Pro Bowl we know that Pittsburgh fans are some of the most active and best fans of any NFL team. The Steelers win over the Minnesota Vikings comes at the right time for us and our last two games should be sure wins for us.

Can’t Keep These Steelers Down

Jerome Bettis won the AFC player of the week award for his furious play against the Chicago Bears. This was a key win for the Steelers because the Bears have beat a lot of teams we have faced and our schedule is not getting any easier with Minnesota coming up next week. Minnesota poses a threat but if our Philly players can come up with awesome moves like they did on Sunday we have a good chance of beating them. Ben Roethlisberger is probable for the Vikings game but will be playing with a hurt thumb. Hines Ward will be back as well with his ankle supposedly healed.

Steelers on a Losing Streak

This Steelers team looked like they were going to the playoffs until they played the Ravens. That game was the start of what is now a three game loosing streak. It is hard to focus on the upcoming game and not dwell on the negative events of the past few weeks. The Chicago Bears are a great team and have beat some of the best teams in the NFL. We are facing them on Sunday and it’s hard to decide whether the Steelers team can put the losses behind them and play as good as we know they can against the Bears.
