You spelled Steelers wrong in your news broadcast. How about a little respect for a team that has won 5 Super Bowls, one in the last 10 years.

That's ok. Your butt will be handed to you next week when Brady and Moss get done. Enjoy your week of gloating JagsFan. Your players are as cocky as the fans.

Well as a Brit and an avid soccer fan who has ripped NFL and Jags in my column in the past I must say I was entertained. End to end stuff and Drew-Jones and Garrard made it possible to overcome home advantage late recovery. Nearly as good as watching Arsenal and Liverpool in a cup semi final except that it is done at 90 miles an hour and with only a 15 minute break and the athlete's don't get to sit down after they score. They are still running and shooting after 90 minutes. Then maybe extra time? They will scowl and swear if substituted after 85 minutes with blood streaming from their heads. However, as that passion and power and artistry is not available live here I am able to accept that last night was a good substitute. Well done Jags. Final comment, why do they have to travel to the opponent in these games? In soccer they would be played in a neutral stadium with equal distance to travel when possible? It must be to do with money I guess? Go Figure.

not many slight ones do I see....mostly couch wannabee's.....could not last 20 minutes of soccer....get rid of the excess 100 pounds and you might just make it for ten minutes and then the steroids would kick in...all brits can play our national game......only the musclebound play yours...

I agree, the team is doing so well I hope we will have more support next year. We will need it. Our 2008 season will not be an easy one so we will need our 12th man for moral support. Come on Jacksonville!

I don’t think we will make it to the Super Bowl, but I am very proud of our Team and have been a season ticket holder since day one. Through the good and bad. Even when my favorite player Keenan Mccardell left.(he was so cute)

Bad officiating can givith and bad officiating can takith away. Last night the Jags were givith the win against the Steelers. With under 2 minutes left when your QB broke it for a big 30 yard gain on 4th down and put the Jags within fieldgoal range, the officials did not call the holding call against your offensive lineman. Your QB would have be tackled at the line of scrimage. Look at the films! It's there! Good luck against NE and kick their butts!

Nice win Jags. Now go to N.E. and smack them in the mouth. Then what you will get for all your effort is another date with the COLTS who will hand you your last loss of a great season. You have turned the corner but your not there yet.
