In week 2 against Denver, the offense twice gave the defense the lead, keeping Peyton Manning off the field for a WHOPPING one hour of play and we STILL lost the game. In week 2, our offense scored 27 points and had a breath-taking 10 minute drive to close the game at home. In week 3, our offense was absolutely BRILLIANT, scoring 31 points of offense and playing with the lead the entire game until the final gun.

And it's because of inserting the fullback? Good grief. You people are downright NAUSEATING to listen to after a loss. Out of all my years that I have watched the Pittsburgh Steelers, it's to NEVER panic after a couple tough loss's. You fans should buckle down and do the same and realize this season is FAR from over. If it's any team to rebound, it's us. Same thing every year. We're bound to drop some tough road games.

We will respond.
I am just joking about the effect a "true" fullback has on our record, it's sort of a running joke I've been going with since the season started. Maybe not the best joke since nobodies laughing but wry or sarcastic tones can be hard to detect over the net.

Man, you brought back some bad memories. I lived in Miami during Marino's tenure there and got to see his whole career. What you just described is exactly what he had down there. Come to think of it, it's even more uncanny. When they'd lose do to piss poor defense or pitiful running game, Shula would come out in his press conference and say "...we didn't get it done..." Sound familiar?

Timmons doesn't make a lot of plays because he routinely covers the other teams rb or te. If the one player he covers- and he covers them well- doesn't get the ball he doesn't get a stat. Timmons is one of the best cover lbs in the NFL and he is great at making plays in the open field. You fantasy football geeks need to come back to reality. Timmons has been playing very well since the end of last season.

Bason on how Timmons played today - that is what he needs to be doing moving forward. You need to pressure the QB in order to win in this league. So, they need to replicate that each week. Seems pretty simple although I am sure it is not. Either way he looked awesome today!
