I should know this, but I don't... Can you put a center in as the long snapper?

This should be a CRAZY finish.

Holy shit, it begins again. Ravens game all over again.

I hate to do this, but you all are some of the worst fans I've ever met, including Cowboys, Redskins, and Bengals fans.

I hear the Titans are doing well, maybe you guys can cheer for them?

Safety.

You DONT kick off after a safety.

Crushzilla

Ya... seriously...

Maybe my predictions should be a little more descriptive...

Fumble return to the Giants 28?

How's that?

OK tied game - The D has played an absolute monster game - one more push.

The Steelers obviously had no backup plan if Warren got hurt, and have no one else who can punt

Steeldude

lebeau needs to start applying better blitz schemes.

also, hampton is too fat to be effective. he takes himself out of too many plays because he can't change direction. i really haven't seen any push from him either.

Okay Ben, you got 3 minutes to get into OT and win.

Preacher

Steeldude
10-26-2008, 07:19 PM
the steelers will have to go for it on 4th. you can't trust harrison as a longsnapper. it would be better to have stapleton or hartwig for the longsnapping duties.

HometownGal
10-26-2008, 07:19 PM

If the OL can hold off the G-men D, Ben will take us downfield and into the EZ. :tt03:

Somone needs to account for the fact that no one was able to play long snapper when Warren was injured.

He has a back up. You cannot possibly account or plan for such an event. How often does a long snapper get hurt in an NFL game? Maybe once a year, if that? I'd guess its more like every 2 years.

I'd blame Ben and the receivers, and the coaching... It really seems he doesn't take a quick drop and pass play EVER. I'm feeling really sorry for the defense as of late. I'd really like to see a different QB in the same packages.

I don't know. That hold probably kept the play alive. There probably wouldn't have been a throw without the hold.

I would have liked to have seen the officials not SEE it though :chuckle:

The Offense deserves a real kick in the balls. They did everything they could to blow this game. Funny how Ben looked like Eli Manning today. Shit performance by #7 and the Offense.

Now we're going into 6-2 Washington with half a team. Oy vey.

The Offense lost this game big time. Stupid penalties. Stupid play. Turnovers up the ass. Forget the O-Line. The Whole Offense sucked ass.

But hey, we still have our pride! We deactivated a WR over a stupid blunt!

See you guys later.

Giants played a good game, but they'll know they've been in a game tomorrow - our D had a huge game. They're a very very good team and we went hit for hit with them for three quarters despite some killer injuries.

We'll still win this division, so it's how we move on from this that counts

tuff, hard fought game. this one came down to the o-line and NYG definitely proved to have the better one. ben was on his ass for every 2 dropbacks. im just glad he will live to figh another week.

eafratitpm3

Why is it every week when Ben is getting hammered we are not calling quick passes. The Giants understand that and how many quick passes did Eli throw: All of them=No Sacks, get a clue Arians.

I would have liked to have seen the officials not SEE it though :chuckle:

Colon's bed-shitting hold, while not technically a bad call, was not the most egregious example of offensive holding ever seen.

The irony is that as Colon's man was getting past him, Hartwig had the presence of mind to come back and block on the enemy defender as he was bearing down on Ben.

I think Hartwig, despite having a bad angle on the DL, could have held him off long enough for Ben to get the ball off.

Bottom line is Colon is too short to play tackle; he should never have been started there; Larry Zierlein is as big an idiot as Arians.

Until these 2 clowns are 86'd, our O is going to look spastic and inconsistent like it did today.

I didnt get it. We hold the Giants to 5,6 poss. in the red zone and limit. We shut down the run game, our long snapper goes down, Berger pulls a hammy, no sacks, Moore had a good game, Ben and the O were awful....
yet we lose by 7. Im not too mad about this however. But this was a bad game.

You lucky stiff! I don't have that luxury, unfortunately. :chuckle:

We're 5-2, still atop the AFCN and headed to Skins country next week. It's not like we lost to a shitty team - we lost to the defending Super Bowl champs. Yes the game was in our hands and the D did a helluva good job, but it's only our second loss of the season almost halfway through.

Have some faith! :tt02::tt03::tt02:

If Colon didnt hold, Ben would have been sacked

I dont understand our offensive line.. somethings gotta be done, even at the end of the game he still couldnt get off a decent pass.

Also Ben needs to stop hesitating so much, its bad enough our o line isnt that great.

Gotta come back strong next week.

10-26-2008, 07:54 PM
I know you win with Ben and die with him but I honestly think in that type of second half and as many hits as he was taking Leftwich would have been better against the G-Men today. He has a quick release

SteelersHoss
10-26-2008, 08:02 PM
not ben's fault, not the oline's fault, the Recievers couldn't get open. Arian's can take some blame as well. Two wide outs on a fourth down play. come on.

St33lersguy
10-26-2008, 08:10 PM
What a heartbreaker!!

The OL (paticularly Colon who deserves to be cut) pretty much lost the game.
What the f*** is Tomlin doing putting James Harrison at LS. He's a passrusher!!!!! Put Hartwig in!!!!
Give credit to the D, if the Giants played another D today or if the D didn't play at 100% the game is not close if you really think about it. THe Giants moved when the Steelers got hit with all those injuries. That will hurt us down the stretch

eafratitpm3
10-26-2008, 08:15 PM
Well I'm sure tomorrow we will here Ben on NFL network saying he lost the game for us and that it wasn't the OLine's fault. This is getting to be a more common occurence every week. I don't understand why the Steelers continue to get away from the quick screens and short passes with an OLine (COLON) that sucks so bad. Every other team in the league that has a winning record there is one constant, the majority of their pass plays are short and YAC. How difficult is this?

The 7 Million dollar tackle looked like crap. Colons holding call was a joke. Our D played awesome. Someone tell me why in the 4th we got away from running the ball???? As for Silverback being the LS he was the snapper in NFL Europe for the Rhein Fire when he was over there. He had experiance at it there for thats the reason he was brought in.Hopefully Marvel comes back next week and Max can resume stealing from the organization.

As a fan of both of the teams, the G Men's defense deserves a lot of credit. Don't sell them short. Forced Ben into bad throws. Steelers o line got dominated. Ben got sacked and knocked down. Ben does need to get a quicker release. The Steelers o line was not very good. Ben is not gonna survive the season if this keeps up.

Greg's going out with that injury definitely impacted the game. I don't know why Harrison was put in as LS, but that safety was a turning point in the game.

Eli came through with the clutch TD.

This was a tough, hard hitting game. I would not mind if this wound up being the Super Bowl. It would kick ass.
