Conference Championship Roundup

• What exactly was that taunting sound effect that the Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium (lame corporate sponsorship, while retaining some of the history of a field that is less than 5 years old) audio personnel was pumping into the stadium every time a Steeler pass fell incomplete? Ben Roethlisberger was 21 of 29 for 268 yards and 2 TDs through the air. All the while Jake Plummer was getting picked twice and fumbling once.

• Nick Goings is still trying to figure out if he’s coming or going after that hit.

• Of the 76,775 paid attendees of the Sundays whitewashing by Steelers, an estimated crowd of 8,000 Steeler supporters made their way inside Invesco Field. Bronco supporters should be stripped of their season tickets if they sold their tickets.

• If you picked Steelers – Seahawks at the beginning of the season, you’re a liar.

• Jake Delhomme – please go home. There was Super Bowl gold at the end of those three rainbows, but you had to be wearing emerald to find them (or catch them in this case).

• We’d pay to see Lofa Tatupu and Troy Polamalu do one of those XFL game opening sprints for the ball.

• Steve Smith – 5 catches, 33 yards, 0 TDs – end of ballgame.

• Sports writers around the country are cursing the thought of having to type the words "Roethlisberger" and "Hasselbeck" 10-15 times a day for the next two weeks.
