    Did you ask Von directly?

    Whining about a victory is one thing but stick to the truth if you are going to do it.
    I am sticking to the truth. If that same Chiefs squad we saw Monday night played as fired up like that the rest of the year they wouldn't be in the bind they are now. I have the Sunday Ticket and I have watched the Chiefs play and all year it has been nowhere in that neighborhood. The offensive display we saw from both sides was weather related by the way - you play in a down pour the score usually reflects it (ask the Texans/Bears).

    Bottom line is the Chiefs came in and decided this was their Superbowl moment and still lost. Along the way with the idiotic dancing in the endzone that was rightfully flagged and even more funny called back due to PI you could see that they were a mile above their normal play. Its all good though...the Steelers are used to everyone bringing their A+ game because thats what it takes to beat us. When you are one of THE premier teams in all of the league you get every team's best.

    Just got a free ticket to the Sunday night game! Steelers/Ravens/Heinz Field/Prime time.... it doesn't get any better than that! Leftwich is starting Sunday night but oh well, just gotta get the run game going the way it was for the Redskins, Bengals, and Giants and I think we'll be alright.

    LOL. No one gives a fck about playing the Steelers. Every team gets "up" for MNF and every team wants to win a division game, then a conference game. The Chiefs have ONE player who was alive in the 70s when the Steelers were the dominant franchise. Playing the Steelers is more important than beating their rivals in the Raiders, Broncos and Chargers? Yeah, okay. I'm sure this was everything to every Chief fan, the city, the players and the owners. I'm sure Eric Berry and Tamba Hali were talking about this game all off-season, lol.

    Their superbowl moment was losing a game and having their worst offensive performance against a team that probably won't even make the playoffs? Yeah man, keep arguing that.

    Big Ben is going to miss some time for sure.

    Ben Roethlisberger identified the rare and dangerous rib injury: a dislocated first rib that could have pressed against his aorta

    Yeah they just said here on the news that if it gets made worse it could puncture his aorta and kill him.

    Jake Long leads the AFC left tackles in Pro Bowl votes despite playing about half as well as Ryan Clady, but people should take going to pro bowls seriously?

    Literally nobody has taken the Pro Bowl seriously in at least 10 years.

    except for media and agents who find ways to get players bonuses for being popular.

    The media will try as hard as they can to make anything relevant, but that doesn't mean it is. And you said the key word when it comes to players....popular. That's all it is, a popularity contest. Troy made the Pro Bowl during a year where he played like 6 games. It has little to do with actually playing anymore. Every year there are guys that don't make it that should, and nobody really cares. You might hear about it for the day or two after they announce the rosters, but that's about it.
