Wait, wait, wait - just had an idea - what about movin A.Smith to O-line? C'mon - the guy can at least hold guys off even if he can't get any push back!?!!?!?!?!!?!? It is at least worth trying . . .

AMEN!

Collingsworth was ok, even stated the Steelers are a top 5 team. Praised Ben some. I didn't have a problem with them.

Plus Goodell probably threatened to fine them if they pick on players after last weeks headline repeater of the that chocke artist in Chicago, named Cutler, lol

EVERY announcer will pull for the severe underdog in situations like last night because the entire football watching audience is also, other than Steelers fans. if the Steelers would have continued off their 10-0 start, we would have heard Steelers praising all night. it's the way it is.

No way, you're full of it. It's all part of the mainstream media conspiracy.

I'd rather be yelled at by my wife and my mother-in-law than to listen to Nantz and Simms.

As far as Collinsworth and Michaels go, I think they are the best in the business.
Of all the talking heads out there, they seem the most like just two guys watching a game.
They're not "on" all the time, they talk about relevant things and they know when to shut up.

They're funny as well.
On one play, Freeney did one of his spin moves and ended up knocking over two Steelers and one of them fell into Ben and Michaels off-handedly said the play looked like "Three guys leaving a bar".

I cracked up on that one.
