Hey Blitz,

There was certainly no sarcasm intended in the original post - just an observation of a crazy start to the new season by a team I have always thought of as super-solid.

Willie Parker could be a great find - but I shall withhold my judgement for a few weeks yet - but with Bettis and Staley waiting in the wings it looks good for the Steelers power running game.

I have been a pretty unashamed Big Ben fan since last year (hard to be one before that I suppose LOL) - he does what needs to be done in the games I seen him in - more experienced QB's with a ton more wins have had just as much, if not worse, trouble deciphering BB's defensive schemes.

I think the stick he was getting pre-season was laughable - when you consider how many people are just DYING to get the Eli Manning bandwagon.

Ben will continue to make mistakes this year, but he's learning every game - might not be a bad thing if he has to handle a little adversity before he hits the post-season this time though...

Cheers

NM

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
