Hey guys!

Trying something a little different this week.

Most forums, believe it or not, start the gameday threads as much as three to four days BEFORE game time, and because i'm unveling a lot of new features, i'll be posting in here throughout the week until game time.

New feature: http://www.steelersfever.com/weather.html

Radio is my only option at the moment - I don't have TV anymore and I hate bars - so I couldn't see if this is a legit challenge or not - but Tunch and Wolfley seem not to have issue with it. Anyone see the play and if this was a good challenge?

AndyWitmyer
09-23-2012, 04:39 PM
This another example of a team that's beginning to gel. The Special Teams botched things up, but the D came in to bail them out with a pick. Ben took what the D gave him and turned that into 7 points. Definitely a good start.

Looks like the denver game all over again. And this is carson freaking palmer.

Let's hope not. But - we can't do long drives and allow the Raiders to step up and score in less than a minute. If this continues, and becomes a shoot out - we're not going to win with time of possession - and that decreases our odds of winning, period. Losing a game with a command of the time of possession implies a defense that's giving up big numbers. Which (aside from not getting enough TDs) is essentially what happened week one.

BUT... it's a LITTLE EARLY to be calling this "THE DENVER GAME ALL OVER AGAIN"...

Notice the "fast-moving" 1st quarter, that the announcer mentioned. That's because NO commercial breaks so far. Greedy CBS is saving for them for when all of the early games are done, distorting the "natural" flow of the game.

Note--this means those of you stuck watching 1:00 games finish will miss MORE of the Steelers game.

Well - this all depends on the officiating - which is the slowest I've ever seen. I realize that the refs are "n00bs" but they do take a long time in coming to "decisions". - They take their time, and yet still come up with calls that are, at best, controversial.

Steelers doing a great job of screwing around to keep a lousy team in the game

WTF was going on with no commercials until the 2nd quarter?the nationally broadcast game of the miami dolphins vs the NY tebows went into OT.

as soon as the tebows won 9 minutes into the extra quarter, the commercial floodgates opened in the steelers game.

Actually, they have been giving out the numbers. They forgot on this penalty.

My wife is out on the deck where she cant see the game. I asked her what play we would run at the 7.

She said a run up the middle for short gsin.

If she, 1500 miles away can know that, dont you think the Raiders D knows, along with EVERYBODY in the football world?

That's what happens when you don't take care of the ball. You can have all the TOP possible, but if you fumble the ball away, you're giving the game away. 14 points by a crappy team. Unreal. The Jets, amuch better team, was held to 10 points, and these bums have 14. Wow.
