(Steel) Curtains for Jets!

The Pittsburgh Steelers ended the New York Jets’ run to the Super Bowl 24-19!

The Jets didn’t show up for the first half, but once they woke up for the second half, they made a competitive game of it.

24 unanswered Steelers’ points followed by 19 unanswered Jets’ points. Nice comeback, but no way to win such a big game.

Better luck to Rex Ryan and the guys next year!

…And, back to DVDs and comics for us!

HA! Nice impartial reporting there Joe ;)

I’m a lifelong New Yorker, no impartiality is implied! :-)

Though it WOULD be nice if I could “show up” for only the second half of my workday tomorrow!

If only they hadn't screwed up on fourth-and-goal. Gah!

You can certainly point to that, or if the “Tuck Rule” was applied to the “fumble” (Yes, I put it in quotes!) by Sanchez later in the first half, or if Big Ben failed to get that final, fatal first down to close out the game.

Based on prior performances, I had absolute faith that Sanchez would have pulled-off another last-minute miracle, IF he’d gotten the ball back for one final possession. (Even said so out loud at the time!) Per their post game comments, apparently, so did he and Ryan.

Of course, none of this would matter, if they… um, you know… SHOWED UP for the first half!

To paraphrase Herman Edwards: "You PLAY... to WIN... MORE than just HALF THE GAME!"
