View Full Version : I'm sorry about Ben.

I was really looking forward to seeing some Old School football as two brusing QB's, Culpepper and Rothlisberger, faced off. I'm sure it'll still be a great game, and a tough one for Miami to win no matter who is under center at QB for Pittsburgh.

One side not emost of you might not be aware of. Jason Taylor and Charlie Batch are childhood friends. They grew up together and still spend a lot of time together in the off season. Talyor once knocked BAtch out of a game with a concussion(Detroit). Must have made for an interesting conversation after the game. :dang:

Anyway, here's hoping that all the injuries are out fo the way for both teams. Miami doesn't have the depth to absorb them, and Pittsburgh has had enough for one off season.

Thanks for the good sportsmanship you exhibit and for the well wishes! :smile: Good luck to your team in this game and for the remainder of the season! (You do realize that all changes if the Steelers and Fins meet in the playoffs, right? :wink02: )

PhinFan you always show up with some class. Hopefully you`ll stick around after this weeks game.

I'll try to stop in from time to time. Afterall, I'm hoping that the Phins will be competing for a playoff spot, which means that the Steelers will be a concern all season. A couple of things I'm really looking forward to...

Phins D-line versus Steelers O-line. The addition of Wilkerson to the Phins D-line has made a night and day difference. We've always had speed and talent on the D-line, but Wilkerson added a gigantic chunk of MEAN overnight. He'll only play 30-40% of the defensive downs, but the man defines the term "beast". I hazard to say this is the best D-line rotation Miami has had since Timbo and Gardener. REALLY looking forward to seeing them against one of the NFL's best O-lines.

Phins passing game agianst Steelers Secondary. I grew up watching Marino. I've spent the last decade watching QB's float passes. The chance to see Culpepper put a bullet right where a Phins reciever can catch it in stride is like the chance to drink pure spring water after crossing Death Valley.

Saban versus Cowher. Both coaches like the trick play. I'm wondering who will pull out more rabbit tricks for the opener.

Lol, this is a night and day difference from Bungles fans. Thanks Dolfan.
