you guys that claim to have jump ship must be young bucks. ive seen lots of bad Steelers teams over the years. not once would I turn off the game no matter how bad. this team has nothing to be ashamed about!

I don't know what to expect any more. They just keep shooting themselves in the foot and grinding painfully through games. Logic says that you can't keep that up and be a winning club but thx to the D, they are.
Unfortunately that is Steelers football. When is the last time we blew someone out? I think even with Ben today with Wallace and Sanders dropping balls all over the place, we wouldn't have fared any better. Thank God for Heath Miller. He is a rock and Haley uses him a lot. I was happy that the Steelers Oline played pretty well for the most part today considering the shakeups. Pouncey seemed to do an excellent job out there and Legursky held his own at Center for the most part. Beachum did ok as far as I could tell.

The thing Im pissed about last week still might not be corrected yet

I want to see them bring the same or near level of passion, excitement and will to win when we play teams like the raiders, titans, and browns

It drives me insane how they can go all out like this and defy the impossible but yet another week seem like football is the last thing on their minds

I didn't think we had much of a chance with this game because of our shaky O-line

How we won this game with

Starks-Pouncey-Legursky-Foster-Beachum

without Ben....is mind boggling

Wallace and Sanders only dropped one ball each. What game were you watching?

I admit when Sanders fumbled away what would have been a TD, I thought we were so snakebit that not only the game but the whole season was over. For us to overcome 3 turnovers and Batch's horrible throw 10 feet over Wallace's head in the endzone is truly amazing.
The best part is that Joe (I'm an elite QB!) Flacco was outplayed by both Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch in both games we played them this year.

I was glad to see that they didn't bring Troy back full tilt. For first game back though, he was already flying around. Hopefully this means he wasn't rushed back and taking all this time will pay off. Hopefully we keep winning and Troy comes in and starts adding to the turnovers. We are starting to get them weekly now. Gotta keep it up!

If they gave an award for a team that has overcome the most obstacles we would win it hands down.

Through adversity...with perseverance...straight through to overcoming despite the obstacles.

I'm eating my wOrda with gravy and I don't mind. We squeaked one by this game but I am not going to give our offense props quite yet. They have not proven to be dependable or consistent. However our defense has been getting better and better and better. Let's not talk about our special teams either.

But we are doing better then one might expect when factoring in the fact we have been plagued with injuries since the start of the season, loss of our QB with no good replacement, worthless wide receivers (Wallace) cough. And so on. Consistancy is what wins not just a one game victory that was a last second win.

But let's admit it...it was nice to stick it back to the Ravens the same way they stuck it to us.

How's that nut soup taste now Birds of Blartimore?

Like I said, we can still win the division. Denver, NY and Cincy playing for the post season will be some tuff games!

Didn't think they would win, but I did suspect an upset was very possible. I guess I was about 60-40 they would lose.
