Wk. 2- The good, the bad, & the ugly
 
the good-
ben roethlisburger- despite the announcers constantly harping on his high throws (as if he was having a horrible game) he finished 22-30 for a tang hair under 300 yds.

mike wallace
hines ward- crushing linebackers on run plays and that sideline catch show why he isnt yet relegated to the bench. one of our most heady and reliable players.
emmanuel sanders and antonio brown- these guys would probably easilly be starters on the colts, replacing the likes of pierre garcon or anthony gonzalez, where they wouldnt be asked to do nothing more than run fast and catch the ball. unfortunately we arent the colts and we have a run game. their time will come. int the meantime their return skills are starting to look exceptional.

(and heath and rashard who had a few combined receptions as well)

all in all the ball catchers hands were glue.

19 rushes by mendenhall and a more ballanced attack called by arians (although there is a sack or 2 and 5 rushing attempts not counted as pass plays).

shutout and 5 sacks ;by the defense goes w/o saying, but im saying it cause it was good.

the bad-

ben getting beat up.

heath miller with only 1 rec and i think just targeted twice.

suisham missing an easy 41 yarder with absolutely no wind. theres gonna come a time where a 41 yard fg is the difference of a win or loss, or we need a critical kick to win a game. lets hope he got it out of his system in a game where points werent a premium.

the announcers apologizing for his miss talking how hard it is to kick into the open endzone as if there were wind that might have missed his kick. he flat out missed.

the ugly-

red zone and especially goaline offense. ben can sneak the ball. have we EVER let rashard try a dive play? :tap: the slow developing shit with a foot to go, has got to be tossed out the window.

ben actually being called a drama queen because he had the audacity to show physical evidence of pain, on a play that knocked the qb queen, tom brady, out for the season.

refs will not throw a flag in bens favor unless their jobs are on the line for blatant neglect of the rules. roger goodell (who is currently at the concussed mike vicks bedside) probably cursed when he saw ben re-enter the game.

I wish the steelers had gotten David Akers in the off season. Suisham worries me.

Suisham worries me too, his M.O. has always been he kicks well for the new team then in year two (this season for us) he falters and then he is gone by year three. Lets hope that was just a "mis hit" and not a sign of things to come.

A win is a win but that was against a god awful Seahawks team. What happened to scoring points in the second half of games?

Arians didn't abandon the run completely in this game.

as for Ben getting "beat up". I've been saying for weeks now, he's GOING to get killed this year. I'll be shocked if he makes it through the year with our OL getting run over.

check out this breakdown of redman's 20 yard play. ward and foster totally beasted on their blocks.

nice find. excellent work by steelersdepot.

we have a member here who couldnt recall hines ward doing anything note worthy or worth mention in the blocking game. i'll have to give him this link.

hopefully foster can earn back his spot.

Is Legursky really better than Foster?

i believe the coaches just fell in love with his above par play in the superbowl.

but that was him playing center with 330 lbs of beef on either side of him. him and the light pouncey together make a penetrable gap.
