The title says it all.

You NEVER count this team out. When we have a QB that can do what he can do. WHen we have a D. that can do what it needs to do.

We just DO NOT count out this team.

I was a little nervous for a minute, but thankfully our D was on point the whole game and Ben and crew stepped up when needed the most.

Ben is a winner

The defense is a winner

This is a winning team :tt03:

Team effort in the end as everyone played hard, Ben tied it and the defense finished. That is a super bowl finish right there ladies and gents!

Wow. I honestly had doubt that they'd be able to pull it out, but they proved me wrong once again.

I'll take my crow raw, thanks. I deserve it.

Amen, Preacher!!!!!!!!!!! :tt03:

Today's my Cowboys-fan brother's bday. I decided not to bring up the game too much around him--you can choose your own friends, but you're stuck with your relatives, right? :D

What a pick-six by Deshea Townsend. Oh man...I said to myself, "If Romo dares throw here instead of handing off to Tashard Choice (who had a monster game for the 'Boys, and to whom I must give mad props), then he deserves to be picked."

Voila, here you go, Steel Curtain country!!!!!!!!!!! :tt02:

I agree.

Was it pretty? Hell no it wasn't.

Was it a win? Hell yes it was.

Does the offense have problems? Yes, it does have problems. But in absolute crunch time, the offense came through.

It would help if we had a healthy Willie Parker. I think everyone can tell he's not quite right.

Also, I gotta give props to the Dallas defense. They were being kinda knocked as not physical but they sure showed today that they are a very physical defense.

Great win today. The 'boys played well and we earned every inch in that game. 'Tis truly a game of attrition.

Hey...


If ANYONE said they weren't worried... they would be lying!!!!

I was just about assured that they wouldn't make it... but I ALSO know that the Steelers ALWAYS have the ability to win.

i had my doubts after the 'girls TD in the 3rd. turned the volume down a bit on the tv and started to only half watch the game...

...thank god i didn't turn it off!! wow, what a team.

Gotta love that Defense. If Arians is still here next year, I will not believe it. They kept trying to do the same thing over and over and over and it WASN'T WORKING. Get a clue moron. If our offense played even halfway decent, we would blow everyone out. I love this team but they drive me freakin crazy sometimes.

Same here. I was one to throw in the towel early. I think this may have been because this is the first, and let me repeat, LAST time i bet in a steelers game. The extra stress wasnt worth the $100 i won.

I'm still not happy with this O. The D and Special teams gave them 5 turnovers and couldn't do anything.

wow i just went through the whole Rollercoaster.

First I was excited about the game.

Troy interception and i was fired up.

Scoreless game but i felt that our D could keep on going until our O got on track.

FG to lead 3-0 and i felt like we were about to take this game slowly.

3Q I saw it all fall apart even our D looked like they were about to give up for a second.

Then I was about to cry because of the frustration about our O.

Then I got hope back when we got that 4th down conversion.

Then I started yelling and crying in happiness because we cameback.

Then when we got the INT for a TD i exploded in happiness and went crazy.

When the Cowboys went 4 and out and we kneeled it home, I felt relief.....WOW

Although I stayed positive in the gameday thread, I was PISSED with about 10 minutes to go with us trailing 13-3, gotta admit.

Yes and no matter if we win out you will still hear some complain about how bad the Steelers are. I remember another team the Ravens that won a super bowl doing the same thing the Steelers are doing now. Playing Great Defense.

You gotta love this team. I know I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:hatsoff:

And that, I think, is the source of my frustration in these threads. We all get ticked, we all get mad. However, you temper it here.

Much appreciated.

Gotta admit... When Colon fell down and allowed the rush to come in and stop us going into the endzone, I thought we were goners.

theres nothing wrong with getting ticked when it all looks bad.
I got frustrated, because it pissed me off to see such a great D giving so much and then watching the O giving so little back AND i am not a Ben hater. i love the guy. I love our O because we got really talented players on the offense and we have seen them doing really good things.
I know the O can do better than that, and that is why i got frustrated during the game today, because they almost threw away the game just like againts Giants and Colts.

however now i just feel like celebrating this win and i really hope this comeback win will affect the offense positive for the Baltimore game, cause we really need them to be better against the Ravens than they were today.
Not worried about the D. they just keep on shutting everyone down.
Gratz on the win boys. GO STEELERS:tt03:

Reminded me very much of the Baltimore game, but our defence was even better ! I thought the offense may have turned for the better after last weeks good performance in NE.
Tough game next week and we will need the Offense to carry some of the load... great win None the less....
Oh ya our Punter still sucks !!

The entire team made plays in the 4th quarter to win this game. Who would have thought that after 13 games we would have a 10-3 record. Another big win for this Steelers.

Yes, the defense held us in the game. Howwever, when we needed it, the Offense came in and moved the ball not once, but twice down the field to put up 20 points in that fourth quarter. Actually, they moved it 3 times. We were also playing against a HECK of a defense.

So I am pretty happy right now.

I am happy also, because again we know that this team is NEVER out of a game.

I'll tell you this much. THe old smash mouth team of the late 90's would have NEVER been able t make a comback like this. They didn't have the quick strike long strike ability that we had.

My only argument is that as bad as our O was today I think everyone would have to agree we are at least a shade better than the 2000 Ravens offense. I think this defense is every bit as good and our offense is considerably better.

12-08-2008, 08:58 AM
What a game I stil cringe when we have 3rd and 1 or short because, we really struggle to get that 1 tough yard. The defense is amazing and, Ben and the offense made plays when it counted. Plus our special teams came through except the punter of course. It was not looking good late in the third qtr but, our guys turned it around. Again a great game man my throat is sore from yelling at the end of the game. lol

Yes, Preacher...the title DOES say it all!

Great teams find a way to win, and that's just what happened yesterday! :applaudit::tt03:

But it is impertive that the offense have it together for the Ratbirds Sunday...their D looked nasty yesterday against the Redskins.

w/ the way the ravens have been playing they better bring the last 9 min or so from this game into that game.. it will be tough
