Wild Card Halftime

At this point it looks as though it will take a Tebow-esque miracle for the Steelers to advance any further in this playoff season.

The view from here is that a lack of physical play by the Steelers' corners allowed Denver's receivers ~ including a tight end ~ get off the line of scrimmage with relative ease, and (to his credit) Tim Tebow threw some of his best passes of the season.

As if things weren't bad enough, injuries to Brett Keisel, Casey Hampton, and Max Starks leave Pittsburgh with no depth, ensuring that both dies of the Steelers' line (i.e. the offense and defense) are going to fad badly as the game wears on; and with the score being what it is one can surely expect a lot of running from Denver's offense.
