Pittsburgh 30 Houston 10

I see the usual sack/hurry fest for poor Texans QB David Carr - leading to a couple of INT's aswell - the Houston TD will be ST or courtesy of the D.

Taking the angle no one is. Old kicker vs. New kicker. Old TE vs New TE

23-13 Kicker square off with Reed getting an extra boot. Bruener scores for Texans although Miller shows off more and more blocking skills each week. Again score is only close because of a late score by Texans.

BlitzburghRockCity
09-18-2005, 11:55 AM
Yeah Staley was just deactivated before the game, so I'd be we wont see him till after the bye.

Oustanding playing today by the STeelers.. Excellent running even though it wasnt quite the yardage as last week, but hey U cant always put up those huge numbers, but we were productive and ran the ball pretty damn effectively!!

Excellent job by Ben and the WR's..another stellar day!! Defense played awesome the first 3 quarters w/ only a hiccup on that TD drive. They started to tire in the 4th, but still came up when they had too.

Awesome day by our team especially w/ the Pats coming up this week..we didnt look past the Texans and we took care of business !!!

2-0 baby !!!!!!!!!!

Koopa
09-18-2005, 02:59 PM
why is it at the beginning of each season the nfl gametrack always messes up? you'd think all the years they've had it, it would be up and going with no problems these fools. well this was a good game didn't like the way the defense came in relaxed in the second half that's un called for no lead is ever safe in this league good thing we were playing a crappy team. willie decent game would've liked to see more break away runs but that's aight, i like that we got 8 sacks, only one turnover but that's aight. glad the three main wrs got 70+ yards each and big ben is still undefeated in the regular season, now lets see how other fans find away to hate on him now

Nice job by the Steelers - props on getting to 2-0.

We are making a hard job of it against Carolina...have held davis to 56yds on 23 carries...but ST sucks - we have had all sort of offensive problems - so many false starts its untru...here's to hoping we can keep it close....27-17 as I type this Pats gettiong the ball from a punt.

why would you do that when you have the pats next? they need as much playing time as they can get espically this early in the season, so they can workout all the kinks, i'm glad cowher didn't take any of his players out that's almost like quiting.

I disagree.
By late in the 4th quarter all of the starters have put in a full day especially when all you're looking to do is chew up the clock........you start filtering in your back-ups.
It has nothing to do with quitting or working out the kinks it's about playing smart football.

Koopa
09-18-2005, 04:03 PM
that ain't smart football to me, you keep the guys out there and flex your muscles let them get all the reps they can get help build more confiednce and pad some stats that's what's you do, that's what i like, taking out the starters just makes the score look more decent and i don't like that. blowouts look better.

Ambridge
09-18-2005, 04:31 PM
How smart is it if Ben, Willie or one of your other big studs on either side of the ball goes down and is lost for the season for the sake of stats or padding the score in the middle or late 4th quarter.
If anything you give the reps to the backups in garbage time in order to get them some experience. :wink:

Koopa
09-18-2005, 04:47 PM
well did you see ben throwing the in 4th? i didn't see him do much of that, willie needs the reps to get better as a running back and needs to get used to the pounding and cowher was stat padding him cause he took him out as soon as he got over 100 yards. anyway this is gonna be convo that will go on forever casue i won't change my mind about takin out the starters so it'll be pointless to keep going on. you think what you want to think and i'll think what i want to think.

09-19-2005, 02:13 AM
I agree with the injury logic, but I agree on keeping them in. Why? It reestablishes the 60 minute a game mentality. You have had two dominating wins on the scoreboard. If you take the starters out, you have them chit chat on the sideline for the 4th and then all week you are kinda trying to put the back in focus. Its like a mental prevent defense. Just keep doing what your doing. If it was the playoffs/bye week/or such then fine sit them but not a week away from the Pats. Focus first.

I could agree with that but the thing that bothers me is that with 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter how many series are both offense and defense going to see? Perhaps 2-3??
Just too big of a risk IMO.
At that point I think it's just about milking the clock.

Could you imagine the media and fan firestorm coming down on Cowher had a key starter been lost in last few minutes of the game when the outcome was a foregone conclusion?? He would be Crucified beyond belief.

The game announcers Steve Tasker and Don Criqui were both commenting about why the Steelers starters were still out there so late in the game.

ironcitychef
09-19-2005, 11:38 AM
Didn't know about the announcers, but I guess the same can be said for pitchers who are ahead 12-0 but get left in. Glad we don't have to second guess this one.
