Next 3 games are going to be long waits

This from Ed.B. of the P-G (with a dart thrown in the direction of the Worlds draft pick)

The Steelers inactives for today: NT Casey Hampton and Chris Hoke, LB James Harrison and Jason Worilds, G Doug Legursky, RB Jonathan Dwyer, QB Dennis Dixon.

Some thoughts on that:

Worilds having trouble getting on the field in his second season while Sean Lee, taken three picks after him, tears it up for the Dallas Cowboys.

Sort of sloppy with a few penalties, but it was the first drive and its prob due to nerves.
I can already tell Arizona will be playing fierce all day. I look for them to hit us hard and prob draw more than a few flags, unless they are hitting Ben.

shaner82
10-23-2011, 03:32 PM
If Roethlisberger leads Brown there rather than putting it high and behind him, that's probably a first down

WickedSteel
10-23-2011, 03:32 PM
If Ben wouldn't have thrown that behind him, that would have been a 1st.

Rick5895
10-23-2011, 03:33 PM
GD. Kemo. Sit his ass down.

theplatypus
10-23-2011, 03:33 PM
How many times is kemp going to kill us with that penalty?

Chadmagic
10-23-2011, 03:35 PM
Well we have some life on the Oline and they are moving the ball. Problem is dumb mental mistakes and penalties are moving it back.

We aren't running the ball yet this game. But, I think that will come soon enough. Ben is completing passes for big chunks at a time. So I expect they will back off the line more and play more zone. That will lead to more running and play action

WickedSteel
10-23-2011, 03:36 PM
Knew it. Fitz will burn them all day. He can't be covered.

Chadmagic
10-23-2011, 03:36 PM
Fitzgerald wont get many more of those.

No pressure to speak of...

Thanks refs. How late can a flag be thrown? Shooting themselves in the foot already.

Rick5895
10-23-2011, 03:40 PM
Looks like we get to play Goods henchmen, the refs, as well

Chadmagic
10-23-2011, 03:40 PM
I think they will take a shot down the field here on 2nd down. Probably to Fitzgerald. But Its the perfect time to throw something deep right now.

10-23-2011, 03:41 PM
I'd sit Kemo a series. he needs a lessoned learned. he does that crap way too much. cost the Steelers 3 points and how close our games our that could be the difference

Don't they teach you not to do that in Pop Warner football?

agreed, I know that it is possible for Arizona to down it on the 1 or 2 if Brown lets it go, but arent the percentages greater that it would go into the endzone for a touchback.

Come on Antonio. Run away from it and let it go in the endzone. Worst case scenario--we start 4 yards further back

Please stop trying to go deep. Just get it to the guys 10-20 yards away.

Ben doesnt seem to be very accurate on throws like that. That throw was late and Wallace had to check up and wait--then he collided with Peterson which slowed him down too much and it looked like Ben over threw him, but really he didnt.

I agree, find the seam in the middle and eat up chunks of yards that way

i think they were just trying to get it on the right hash to make it an easier kick for suisham. I'm sure any coaching staff would be happy to take a 10 pt. lead into the half

no sense risking an INT or sacked out of FG range especially when we're getting the ball in the 2nd half. it was smarter to set up an easier kick for a fg

Yeah I thought of that. But with the penalties and everything else going your way on that drive I think it was worth taking the shot. Knowing when to take the risk is 90% of taking it. Not on just some random play when you are on your heels in the endzone. Hes just lucky that worked in his favor as the odds were against it.
