I told you their offense was broken...

"It ain't broken, they've won 8 games in a row!"

Yeah, so is it broken now? Sheesh.

Actually, I was comparing the Steelers more to the Bucs and the Panthers, wasn't I?

But Orton didn't "suck ass" yesterday. He threw for 207 yards with no picks or fumbles. He even rushed for 8 yards. He convincingly drove down the field 70+ yards twice to your 1 & 2 yard lines, but we settled just a FG and then a TD w/o the point after. If da Bears had scored TDs (w/PAs) both times (which we should have been able to do), the score would have been 21-14 in the 4th Qtr with 13:31 left to play. We should have had at least a shot at tying it up and going to OT.

And that was with our Defense deciding that they didn't feel like playing yesterday. Looking at the "highlights," just about all I saw was Bears Defenders bouncing off of Bettis.

But our O-line didn't play up to their usual excellent game, so Orton was sacked 3 times, especially that critical one when we were on your 2 yard line, running a bootleg. You guys manhandled our O-line. Which also shut down TJ's running lanes, thereby killing da Bears running game. Time of possession shows how effective you were at that.

Plain and simple, you took da Bears out of their game and made them play yours. How come AFC teams (Steelers, Bengals, even the Browns) are able to do that to da Bears?

Anyway, congratulations on a great game. I'm glad we were able to keep your playoff chances alive.

You may now give this Bears fan his ass-whuppin'

To be fair, 43 yards of those passing yards came on that freak play where Ike inexplicably didn't intercept the pass that was thrown right to him, and another 40 or so came on that garbage time drive with about 4 minutes left that resulted in a TO on downs. So, really, there was only one drive down the field.

I don't understand your fixation with Orton's performance yesterday. He looked like a fairly-competent journeyman NFL QB. Not a future Hall-of-Famer, but decent.

The rest of the team, the O-line, Special Teams, running game, and most glaringly the Defense, all played like crap. You handed them their heads.

Kyle looked OK, not great, but OK. Why are you picking on him?

I'm not, just pointing out that the 207 he hung on us was mostly garbage. You were the one who said:
