I agree with you. Obviously we are going to play a lot of close games and we can't afford to miss sure field goals. Sure would be nice to be able to make a long one once in a while when needed. I've never felt comfortable with our kicker, but I have to admit he has kicked very well for us the last two years. Sure hope he doesn't go into the tank this year.

Was that spectacular drive against the Ravens enough?

Some teams should punt on third down.

2010, when Big Ben was suspended for 4 games, the steelers would have gone 4-0 had it not been for that fucking moron Kemoeatu and his holding penalties.

Best coaching I had seen in a long time during those 4 games. I wish Tomlin could channel what he did those 4 games into now.
