In my eyes the Pats rivalries in the AFC were Colts, Bronco's, Steelers, Ravens. Division rivalries are always there but let's face it the division has been mediocre at best most years with a few exceptions.

I guess it comes down to what "heated rivals" means to you. When I think of that, I think of games where the teams will fight to the last second tooth and nail. I just can't recall that many NE-Pitt games that have played out that way. Whenever the Steelers come to Foxboro they usually play terrible football and the press conferences are usually polite afterward.

You convinced me. I just looked back at the actual games they've played since 2000 and it's not pretty. I think my opinion is colored a little on this because they're one of the few AFC teams that have won a few superbowls over this Pats run and also one of my good friends is a Steeler fan.

I laughed out loud when I saw the Pats had signed Harrison, because it's such a Patriots move. One, he provides some potential help as a situational pass rusher, and two, it's a giant middle finger to the Steelers. I have to admit my bitter, spiteful heart would kind of like it if the AFC title game turned on Harrison strip-sacking Roethlesberger.

Haha, I hear that. You and your buddy are probably give each other more crap than the players on the field do! Just imagine if Suggs ever did this.

Yeah. The only way I see Suggs taking a Brady jersey is off his broken body.
