Default Re: Recapping the Steelers 16-14 victory over the Eagles

He got the pressure on Michael Vick, causing him to make some bad throws and that played a big part in the outcome of the game.
The Steelers were able to move the ball on the ground with Mendenhall back. So, hopefully the running game continues to improve. They will be going nowhere without it.
And, hopefully Todd Haley continues to adjust his offense in order to let Ben Roethlisberger, and the wide receivers make the plays that they are capable of.

Well our secondary has always sucked. You don't need a good secondary when you can pressure the QB on the opposing team. This was the first game I've seen us get to the QB this year.

What more can you ask from our offense? They've been tearing it up all year. If the running game continues we'll be pretty damn dangerous. We just need our D to play average or better.
