I think Dilfer is a good analyst as well. Not as good as Merril Hoge, who deserves his own show.

Not only would I like to see them turn the FG's into TDs, but like you say when we get close to FG range it would be nice to see us end up getting a field goal, and not pushed back to the 50.

I agree 100% with this post.

I might be biased (in junior high, I made a line-drawing, in permanent black ink, of Meril Hoge... which is still on the wall at my parents' house), but Meril Hoge definitely needs his own show. The dude is money.

FGs turning into TDs is always nice, but like you said, I'd settle for not getting pushed out of FG range (once already inside of it). That alone would easily be 3 more points per game (which is huge/the difference between a few of the losses this season).

TOP works wonders...when your Defense isn't shit and you have competent QB play. The Broncos are stupid for not unleashing Manning. The Steelers are smart for leashing Ben.

Denver and New England have to score, because their Defenses suck. When they can't score, they're up shit creek.

Pittsburgh has to play top-line Defense, because their QB can't put up points. When the Defense sucks, the Steelers are dead in the water.

Which proves TOP isn't king anymore.

Yep, the Steelers leashed Ben. That resulted in 8-8.

Actually, Denver had the #2 defense. New England's defense may not rank highly in yards allowed, but they get turnovers. The Pats D is an impact D, the Steelers defense is a stat defense. Even your god Artie admitted such.

The Steelers handcuff Ben until the last 2 mins, then hope he bails them out from their stubbornness. That's not Ben's fault.

Typical yinzer thinking. You should quit while you're ahead and go back to watching old videos of the 90's Steelers not winning anything.

70 Yard Touchdown pass given up near the end of regulation.

38 Points and 331 yards given up to Flacco.

500 Yards Of Offense by the Ravens.

It sucks.

The Steelers "#1 defense" meant jack shit today as well.

Manning had his 31st ranked defense carry him to a championship and then his 2 RBs carry him during the SB (yet HE won MVP because he's the media boy). Don't give me his defense sucked. His special teams scored 14 points for him. He's a choke artist. He's been 1 and done 8 times in his career.

No thanks, I already had my fill of the 2012 Steelers not winning anything thanks to Ben.
