Anyone else go 'Holy shit!!' on that play? lol. Interceptions always suck but that was some hustle by the big man. And of course the size difference looked like a grown man bodyslamming a midget lol.

Has Adams been flagged a lot this season?

I seem to recall the rap on him in wretched hole sometimes called Dallas was that he was given to a lot of personal foul penalties. If so he seemed to have reformed his act since he became a Steeler.

Definitely the first time I've heard people laugh after the Steelers were intercepted. I was in 523 today and the people around me went from screaming/pleading for a tackle to cracking up. And I do think it saved a TD.

Flo was a nice pickup and took some heat during pre-season. It didn't take him long to get warmed up learning a new position though and he hasn't really been penalized. That's coaching/discipline. But that tackle was impressive.

Damn, I'm going to have to look for this when I watch the game again, I missed it. Tried to find a video of it and no such luck.

couldn't find it on youtube either, but i did find this funny clip of him laying marion barber out after a touchdown. i don't think the big fella realizes how big he is sometimes lol, hopefully he doesnt do this to mendenhall :P
