Finally looks like the Patriots will eventually pass the Steelers for Super Bowl titles

I’ve tried to dislike the Patriots but I can’t seem to do it.
Being from Western Pennsylvania my provincial pride is all in for the Steelers. Part of my hoping the Patriots stumble is because I don’t want them to pass the Steelers in Super Bowl wins.
The Steelers won’t, can’t stop the Pats on the field with the stupidity that went into their game plan and preparation for the Patriots. Brady takes four plays to score a TD and one of the Steelers’ better defenders says “we weren’t prepared for the no huddle.”
Stubbornness, stupidity, cluelessness or all of the above, take your pick, the Steelers didn’t adjust on defense. They insisted on a three-man rush that gave Brady all the time he needed to find wide open, uncovered receivers.
The Steelers’ zone was ineffective at best but the genius Steeler coaches tried to disprove the accepted definition of dumb that says “doing the same failed thing over and over will change the outcome.”
Le’Veon Bell wouldn’t have made a difference. The Pats knew how to stand up to the very good Steeler offensive linemen and take away most of Bells’ God given talent just like they reduced Antonio Brown to a sulking, brooding mess on the bench.
It wasn’t fair. This Steelers team was not Chuck Noll’s or even Bill Cowher’s. Bill Belichick would assemble the coaching staff and players to succeed anywhere. I give in, I say “uncle.” The Pats will most likely pass The “Stilerz.”
