Troy the playmaker seals the deal.

The Steelers Defense, just as it has all year, rose to the occasion.

Troy Polamalu. He took the team on his back and carried them to a win.

Troy without a doubt. The best players make the biggest plays in the biggest games, and he came through when the team needed it most.

The best in the business, according to Bill Hillgrove. I can't disagree, with all due respect to Ed Reed :tt02:

Troy definitely.. dont forget about ben though.. losing ward early and having no running game against the second best defense in the league.

No if ands, or buts ... Troy! This was another of those games where try as they might, the offense could not put the opponent away ... our defense was challenged toplay better than the Ravens and they did ... any questions as to who has the best defense in the NFL?

Gotta give it to Ben for managing the game and getting just as lucky as Troy on his duck passes. Holmes could be the second coming of Stallworth if he holds up. Miller could be our all time best TE. All 4 could be future HOFers if they keep winning.

And, nobody on the Steelers cried like bitches after winning the game, unlike the Cards. They are soft.

Troy for sure, but kudos for the Heinz Field crowd........they made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up - I could clearly hear them from here (especially when showing their 'displeasure' over the PI call :sofunny:!!)

I would give two game balls. Troy and Ben both. Ben made some huge plays that put the Steelers in position to win. And Troy sealed it with he stellar defensive play.

I truly believe that it should be the entire defense.

Troy was everywhere tonight...made people forget about Ed "what's his name?"

Great game!!! Ben was Ben and even Limas bounced back with a great block, broke up the INT in the end zone and key catch. Let's just hope Hines is healthy enough to be effective.

Getting my songs ready to play non-stop for the next 2 weeks!!!

To answer the question - obviously it's #43.

well the game balls to me go to -for the defense thats easy,i have to go with polamalu but for the offense that's not so easy as they didnt really have a good game,especially running the ball,but with the ravens defense i knew they wouldnt be able to,the ravens are not the chargers....but anyway,the offense ball goes to santonio holmes for me.....:tt:

The obvious choice would be troys spectacular interception and run back to pretty much seal it.

Santo's scamper after the catch and his overall contributuion deserves credit.

Ben managed the game, recognized the blitz, and threw some awesome passes.

The D was well our D shut down. Pressure from the line and our backers.

Outstanding coverage down feild from our DB's.

Remember too, we, for the most part wasn't given many feild position breaks, and the Ravens were. "Thanks again Berger"

Game ball could go to any one of these units/guys (acception Mitch "the shanker" Berger.) Might do him well to have that nickname in the pen, but.......

Troy, of course. Look up Troy in the dictionary: Momentum.

Don't be too hard on Swead and Mitch. The drop is just one of those things, and we all know our punters suck since Gardocki.

I also would like to make a notion to the O line..while they didn't have a stellar game..they were clogging up the blitz's and giving Ben time..not on every throw but more than usual.

Yes against a VERY good pass rushing team....can't count them out. Maybe Colon tarnished it a small bit.

Ben got hit and sacked, he was rushed but they aren't going to get light years better..I saw them a few times man handle the rush. I have to say I'm impressed. I just wish they could do that all season. IF Ben gets time he can do some damage and he showed that tonight.

01-19-2009, 02:35 AM
Mitch Berger, of course. :chuckle:

Or Troy - I can't decide.

Preacher
01-19-2009, 03:16 AM
Max Starks... He got blown by like no other LT on the Roster! :chuckle:

Seriously,

On D.. Troy, with Woodley a serious runner up. Woodley earned his money tonight.

On O. Ben played very well. A lot of those incompletions were either throw-aways or dropped balls. Very impressive.Santo was pretty impressive, though he has to hang on to the ball after he catches it. I know you all don't agree with me, but the ref made the right call.

HM: O line. That was the NUMBER 2 DEFENSE that we stood up against. A couple of those sacks were overloads and coverage sacks that are on the backs of Ben and the receivers. I am one of the biggest critics of the line on this site I think. . . but we gotta credit them tonight still.

Galax Steeler

I have to say Troy the man was running around like a rat on acid last night.

Woodley played a good game last night so I have to give him the runner up.

Ben played a great game and if there is one game ball, he gets it.

Notably , the defense had many contributors, Troy and Woodley get all the press, but Smith, Hampton plugged up things and Foote, Farrior, Harrison, Timmons, Clark, were flying around.

Preacher was right. 2 of the sacks were Starks being a road pylon and Stapleton wiffing on Suggs, but the other 2 were coverage sacks and they handled the overloads pretty decently. Super Bowl Bound!!!!

Give the ball to Colon. He needs a moral boost so maybe he will stop with the false starts... :chuckle:
