WATCH: Mike Mitchell's Viral Rant and Bold Prediction

Former Highlands alum and Pittsburgh Steeler, Mike Mitchell, made some waves with his statement to reporters about what he thought his team's chances were in this weekend's playoff matchup with the New England Patriots:
"We're going to play [the Patriots] again. We can play them in hell, we can play them in Haiti, we can play them in New England. ...  We're gonna win."
If you don't know Mitchell from his Bluebird playing days, he isn't known to shy away from controversy. He unleashed a rant in a month ago that has been seen 3.4 million times. In it, he talked about how:

1) Football is soft
2) It's Andy Dalton's fault
3) Matt Hasselback is a jerk
4) No one likes Roger Goodell

This is an advertisement. 

Pittsburgh must first get past the Jacksonville Jaguars, as it will host the Jags on Sunday in the AFC Divisional Round.

The Patriots also have a challenge in front of them before a potential rematch with the Steelers, as they will face the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

New England easily beat the Steelers in last year's AFC Championship Game, 36-17, before going on to win the Super Bowl.

The teams met again in Week 15 this season, and the Patriots held on for a controversial 27-24 victory in Pittsburgh.

While we reflect on Mitchell's most recent foray into the limelight, let us rejoice in this glorious scream that also went viral:
