nor did many of their other stars play IIRC in both games they were down to almost playing TE's on the online..
Call me a purest but hollow victories over beat up teams does not show me much.. BUT, yes it is a win..
Please tell me you would not have liked to have Troy P playing in DEN all these years, other than some of the other skells we have had.. I discount that by saying John L and B dawkins are not considered on the Skell list.. but even then they were rentals and not nearly in their prime..
Then profootballreference.com needs to update their head-to-head page (http://www.pro-football-reference.co...ad-to-head.htm
) 'cause that's where my numbers came from.
Wins are wins regardless of whether or not "you" discount them. Our playoff losses vs Indy still counted even though future HOF'er Champ Bailey was sidelined by injuries. It would have been nice to have him on the field instead of Roc Alexander but there are no "asterisks" in the record book; injuries are a part of the game and sometimes it comes down to the quality (or lack thereof) of a team's backups.
And I still maintain that 2-5 vs Denver in Polamalu's career does not
constitute "kicking our ass over the years". Polamalu's a stud player and this is not a diss on him.... but the fact is his team has lost more games against us than they've won.
