I did not see Ben throw 3 int's and one for a TD. I think he is oevr charged, believing he has to win the game because Willies out. He needs to slow down and take what a Great dfense gives you and move down the field.

I'm not even going to bother here. Too many people jumping to conclusions. Jacksonville is a team peaking at the right time of year. We're on the downswing the last several weeks. Nothing that has happened today so far has really surprised me.


Hell on that long runback they had on the kickoff, I was calmly sitting in my chair and my wife was yelling at the tv. She looked at me like I had 3 heads and asked why I wasn't mad too. I told her that with the way our special teams have played the last 2 years I wasn't surprised at all. In fact I cringe when we have to kick off.

Atlanta Dan

We did play well one instance. 2001 Divisional Playoffs against the Rats. Besides that, this team really stunk at home in the playoffs. Why? I don't know.

Speaking of the Steelers being booed, they deserve to be booed. That was a horrible first half. We're gift-wrapping this game to Jacksonville in every way possible.

It's not going to be easy to get back. I think Ben is trying to hard already. Now he'll be putting more pressure on himself. He seems to be trying to aim/guide the ball to his receivers. I think he needs to relax and throw deep.

A voice of reason, which unfortunately will probably be drowned out in calls for Charlie Batch by the band wagoners.

Yes Ben has had a Bad game but he doesn't play special teams which is what turned the game originally. that doesn't excuse Ben's play but it is accurate.

Madden calling out the play calling is amusing to me - I assume the Arians devotees would not contend Madden also does not know enough to criticize the play calling, but who knows - forget the screens - calling Parker's outside runs for Davenport to execute is a waste of a down

You can tell a difference with Troy. He's just not able to close in coverage like he used to. In 2005, he would have picked that slant to Williams.

He said in pregame he could not accelerate or cut, which is a real problem for a DB

Going into 2007 the question was whether Ben would bounce back from 2006 which, tonight notwithstanding, he certainly did

2008 is a pivotal year for Troy - Troy did not do much in 2003, had great 2004 & 2005 seasons, and has been banged up much of the last 2 years - another mediocre year in 2008 and I have to wonder whether Troy is too banged up to return to elite status

Hey at least the Jags will give the Pats a tougher game. I'm still a Steelers fan to the core but they clearly are the better team this season. They're healthy and peaking at the right time of the season (like we did in 2005). Losing all the players we have this season definitely hurt us but I'm not pinning this on injuries alone. The Jags are playing very good right now.
