• The Steelers look improve to 27-14 all-time in the regular season at home in the series history.
PITTSBURGH INDIVIDUAL NOTES

RB Rashard Mendenhall
• Needs 102 yards rushing to surpass his career high for rushing yards in a season. He currently has 1,007 rushing yards after posting 1,108 rushing yards in 2009.

WR Mike Wallace
• Needs 132 yards receiving to post his first career 1,000-yard season. He has already surpassed last season’s total of 756 receiving yards as he now has 868 yards in 2010.
• Needs five receiving touchdowns to break the team’s single-season record, which is 12 held by Hines Ward (2002), Louis Lipps (1985) and Buddy Dial (1961).

LB James Harrison
• Needs 1.5 sacks to reach 50 for his career and become just the seventh player in team history to total at least 50 career sacks.
• Needs one forced fumble to match his career high of seven and to tie the team record for forced fumbles in a season, which he currently shares with Greg Lloyd (1994). Harrison had seven in 2008 and has forced six in 2010.

So very happy to have a 1pm game in HD for a change.

You're not kidding. It's being shown here in NYC on free TV - I won't have to endure a crappy streaming version.

Now if only the Steelers can go out and destroy Carson and the Bungles, I'd be very happy man on this otherwise dismal-looking day. I still remember the game where Carson was in the tunnel with his teammates and said "Let's put a hurtin' on the Steel Curtain" - I think that was the playoff game where he got his knee hurt and was out the rest of the game (Kitna took over for him). Karma. And of course, who can forget when TJ was with the Bungles and used The Terrible Towel to clean his shoes? I have no sympathy for the Bungles in their current plight - Steelers need to destroy this team. Kick them when they're down. Steelers 45 Bungles 3 would be a nice score.

Steelers 45 Bungles 0 would be a nice score.

we're going to have to dig deep today with all the injuries..........nows not the time to let up

This is their SuperBowl and we're going to have to match their intensity

Hope we sack Palmer a bunch and Mendy gets good yardage

Lets do it Steelers

This must be a statement game for us. We need to go in and go hard. Completely maul the kitty cats and come out big. Then we can regard ourselves as a Superbowl team.

Thanks for the links but I found one on my own

Thanks anyway

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:08 PM
Well that whole defensive sequence sucked. We had them stopped but Woodley's offsides gave them new life. And of course, we can always rely on Ike for poor coverage and a pass interference. Let's hope the D wakes up and realizes they can't keep making boneheaded mistakes.

eafratitpm3
12-12-2010, 01:08 PM
I'm sure if Ike finally makes a play we'll see him waving his hand in front of his face mask. When I see him do that it makes me want to break that hand, what a joke

Kanata-Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:09 PM
I guess Ben is wearing a face guard now ?

TRH
12-12-2010, 01:09 PM
wow. That was horrible. We didn't put ANY pressure on Palmer at all. Where was the pass rush?

Steeler4life1972
12-12-2010, 01:09 PM
We cant go easy on these guys

SH-Rock
12-12-2010, 01:10 PM
Our offense can't go toe to toe with that
the Defense needs to step up

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:10 PM
Due to the collapse of the roof in Minn, they're showing Packs-Lions here in NY: Lions running all over Packs. Weird.

eafratitpm3
12-12-2010, 01:11 PM
This is going to be another typical ugly win by our beloved Steelers. Chalk it up to penalties and poor secondary play. Looks like things haven't changed and here we are week 14.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:11 PM
Ben's wearing the face visor.

SteelCityMom

Hey, at least our record is good when the other team scores first (5-1).

Ben goes for the QB sneak and gets the 1st down.

Moore runs so slow I think defenders just run by him sometimes and don't even notice

Nice run by Moore for the 1st down.

I bet that visor comes off soon...it's not doing him any favors at all.

Is it just me or did Ben get hit in the head again? I kind of missed it.

12-12-2010, 01:18 PM
How many sacks does Ben take that takes us out of FG range. Please someone show me that stat. I also put that on the OC. Why take the chance of dropping him back that far. Perfect time for a bubble screen on 3 & 4.

Kanata-Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:18 PM
That face vizor of Ben's, is gonna cause some problems for us..
they should have attached those mechanical "wipers" on it to keep it squeaky clear.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:18 PM
Not for nothing, but this O-line is terrible today - Ben has not had any time to throw - he's constantly on the run or dodging defenders. Man, these guys really suck. At this rate, Ben's going to get either sacked a lot or be running all over the place.

Kanata-Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:19 PM
Comon DEFENSE !!!, 'cause our Offense alone still needs HELP :doh: and that ain't news.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:20 PM
Well, with the defense staying off the receivers by 5-10 yards, we're not going to stop Palmer, that's for sure.

JackHammer
12-12-2010, 01:20 PM
Woodley was held like a mofo there.........

12-12-2010, 01:24 PM
He should be alright...looks like he just got a bit shaken up. Nice to see Ochostinko come over and see if he was all right. Hate him, but that's cool of him.

Defense needs to step up big time though that's for sure.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:25 PM
OOB catch by Owens. Troy was on the coverage.

Well, the defense seems to have woken up. I sure hope they don't take this game lightly. They need to get to Palmer and knock him down a few times - make him really feel the pain.

Looks like we need the D to get us a turnover. This offense needs help.

Rick5895
12-12-2010, 01:32 PM
Hope Taylor isn't hurt too bad, we need him. McFadden is giving his usual 10 yard cushion.

dcsteel5804
12-12-2010, 01:32 PM
I hate watching our defense have to play actual offenses and defend the whole field, and the opposing defense only has to defend the right side of the field for runs, and the deep ball for passes.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:33 PM
Unreal - gave up 8 yards of rushing. What the hell is going on here?!! Has hell frozen over? Are pigs going to start flying?

theplatypus
12-12-2010, 01:33 PM
Damn and we follow with a 3 and out. Mendy needs to stop dancing behind the line and slam it in there.

At least I'm caught up now.

Nice interception of a tipped ball by the Lions of Rodgers.

eafratitpm3

Another game with no intensity, Bengals look like they want this game more. Can this team get fired up for games?????????????

Rick5895
12-12-2010, 01:35 PM
I had a bad feeling about this game before it started and it's not going away. We need to be a hell of a lot more aggressive on D, because the D is going to need to score or force turnovers and give a short field because Our O doesn't appear to be able to do anything.....SO FAR ( hope it changes)

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:35 PM
Damn and we follow with a 3 and out. Mendy needs to stop dancing behind the line and slam it in there.

dcsteel5804
12-12-2010, 01:35 PM
we need to grow some balls and run the freakin ball, and set up the play action pass on 2nd and medium to short. Also, when is the last time we got a first down before getting to third down. I'm sick of 7 yard gain, 0-1 yard gain, then incomplete pass.

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:36 PM
Man, the defense is just giving up a lot of yards rushing - this is not looking good so early in the game.

Woodley clearly held there. Are they EVER going to call holding on the Bengals?

Of course if they call the blatant hold that took place, the play comes back. Pathetic officiating.

Bad vibe today

Our 2ndary is getting torched and our front 4 is not getting enough pressure.
Terrible tackling. Pitiful performance so far on Defense.

Offense should just be ashamed after their showing the last few weeks.

D stepped up nicely there, now with the ball on the 8 we need the O to step up and at least change field position.

You got that right. He's much better blitzing than in coverage.

Team is as flat as the crowd - hopefully most of the seats filled up by the 2nd quarter

Bad vibe today

I noticed all the empty seats too. The crowd doesn't seem into it at all.

Would be satisfied with some first downs here to send the Bengals back behind mid-field

If Arians calls a first down pass here you will hear me screaming in Pittsburgh

Ok, we need to get something going on offense. Need to stop playing like they're scared and move the ball

Tough 5 yards by Mendy. He fought hard for them.

I can't believe Ben is wearing that visor. i can understand how he's going to be accurate with that thing.

Well he's not accurate so the visor is working well, FOR THE BENGALS. Why not put a T-Bar on his facemask, it can't be any worse than not seeing at all

ETL

Ben seems fine last week in Baltimore with no visor and a broken nose.

now he's had surgery (one fix), he's got it taped (two fix) - and a visor (a third fix?) - i would rip that thing off if i were him

NYC_Steeler
12-12-2010, 01:49 PM

Kinda tough to be up for a 2-10 team I guess. They've broken their fans' hearts so many times...

IF that visor wasn't there you can bet on the Bengals poking at that nose every chance possible.

This team's offense ain't taking us anywhere this season and with an aging defense that can't stop the pass ...

Chadmagic
12-12-2010, 01:56 PM
I think on offense we need to put 8 on the line, and try to run behind that.

Atlanta Dan
12-12-2010, 01:56 PM
3 and out really needed here - crap punt by the new punter

Something tells me that Troy is familiar with that pain and I am worried that it is a familiar injury

It's not the visor - the O-line just can't anyone. Ben's running for his life. The O-line is awful.

its so sad that the only pass play we're confident on throwing at this point is a screen pass. Ugh.

Once again, looks like T. Owens having words w/Carson Palmer on the sidelines. Has the appearance of him showing Palmer up again (regardless of what they're saying...doesn't matter)
Palmer is showing some restraint. I'd be half-tempted if i was Palmer to rear back and launch an upper-cut to Owens jaw immediately. Where's the head coach? He should step in and tell Owens to shut his f-ing mouth or he's being benched. An example of when the players run the coach.....not vice-versa
