View Full Version : Steelers-Bengals Replay - NFL Network Tuesday at 8
09-26-2006, 06:15 PM
FYI the game will be rebroadcast on NFL Network at 8 pm EDT tonight
This is the edited version of the broadcast, not a NFL Films Game Of The Week highlights show
With the advantage of being sober, I will be watching this for such issues as whether Ben may have develped happy feet in the pocket and how much of the offensive woes are due to Ben and how much is due to the WRs.

thanks for the heads up, I watched it last night and realized that the Steelers are going to do fine.

The 1 & 1/2 hour rebroadcast is a good concept for NFL junkies. Unfortunately, they still edit out plays - normally I would not want to see replays of incomplete passes, but becuase a number of those were edited out I could not check out whether the problem with the pasing game is related more to Ben misfiring or receivers not getting open (or both?)
One matter that was confirmed was that Ben's chuck & duck INT that was thrown down down the field in the 3rd Q (while the Steelers were running at will) was one of the worst passes I have seen him throw. Bad play call and bad execution there.
Another matter confirmed was that the D was on fire until the emotional let down after the 2 turnovers that led to the 2 quick 4th Q scores.
Bengals probably are the best team the Steelers will play this year so I certainly am not giving up - time to look forward to San Diego (which, let's face it, really is a must win game)

Thanks for the heads up. I would have missed it.
DVR is the way to go - at least I thought it was until I learned that DirectTV DVR's won't allow you to record a live broadcast on the local network channels. WTF. Back to using VHS?
Aside from that brutal lesson digital playback is worth every penny.
