Stat boy must respond to gunny's post! I don't think anyone on this board has not admitted that manning played poorly in those two patriot losses. No question. Manning himself would admit that. But the problem with this steeler game and all three of those losses is that the opposition had a big edge in time of possession. That limited manning's possession opportunities. As soxcat said the steelers held the ball which is the reason manning refused to punt the ball on that 4th down play. Hell the steelers went for it on 4th down twice when it was illogical to do so and made it! Last year corey dillon rushed for 144 yards on that defense and back in 2000 lamar smith ran for 200 yards on the colts in a playoff game.
