Default media taking away from our deserved win....

is this a game the pittsburgh steelers won? or the game carson palmer got injured?

Yeah, I was gonna start a thread but you said it, Pittsburgh won tonight in convincing matters. Yes, Palmer was injured and it could have made a difference in the final score. Same could have happened had it been Ben's knee injured. Carson is hurt, the Bengals are done and Pittsburgh outplayed them all over the field in the second half. Remember, with Kitna in theSteelers had to come back from 10 twice so it was not like losing Palmer was too much of a handicap. Great teams find a way to overcome adversity. The Bengals could not. Sorry about Palmer, but injuries happen. I hope he comes back with full health. I have to admit, I wish they had beaten them with Palmer in there, but a win is a win. Bring on the Colts!

the media coverage does nothing to take away from our win. palmer is a big time pro bowl player and him getting hurt is big news. the media is just doing its job and rightfully so

Silly, we all know that wouldn't have happened.

I don't know, it would have been a lot closer...but I don't know if the result would have been different. If he kept throwing like he did on his only pass, we would have won. That carson...such a tease...always getting hurt when the team gets exciting.

it just would have been more exciting with palmer. after we took the lead the first time, i was pretty sure we would win. now with palmer playing, i prolly would still be stressing a bit.

We were just the better team today regardless of who was playing QB for the bungles.
