The Tattered Steal Curtain
Asked about how [ill-timed guarantee-speaker Anthony] Smith was tricked into allowing a long touchdown catch by Jabar Gaffney on a gadget play, Belichick said, "The safety play at that position was pretty inviting."
Give Belichick five yards for piling on.
Even worse for the Steelers: The trick play, which began with Brady flipping the ball to Randy Moss behind the line of scrimmage before getting it back to throw downfield, was a mirror image of one Pittsburgh ran while beating the Bengals 31-17 in a playoff game two years ago.
Losing to the Patriots was bad enough for the Steelers. Losing on their own play made it even worse.
Updated stats, including a fantasy-playoff victory to come later today.
