You could notice that they were getting tired near the end, but can you blame them considering how much time they spent on the field? If we can duplicate that next week then Cinnci doesn't stand a chance. Porter is going to be breathing down Palmer's next all day. If they can pressure Palmer it could be a long day for him, he has to be somewhat nervous after what we did to him last year.

The point is Last Night's game was not that good from any stand point, for both teams. I think it was the rust from Ben and broken routes that hurt us most. What's with Santonio Holmes? He had a hand full of bad routes where he totally miss running the correct route. Two of them went for INT's.

Time of Poss:

Steelers: 22:35

Jags: 37:25

3rd down Conversions:

Steelers: 3-13

Jags: 6-18

Sounds like a tired defense to me.

And yet, despite all of that, the Steelers D only gave up 9 points to a pretty darned good football team. No disrespect meant here, Wyo, but I think you're being a tad too harsh on our D. The D was on the field for most of the game and they were plain run down.

it wasnt the our defenses fualt at all,im sorry guys but i have to lay all of the blame on ben. he had a horrible performance. yeah wilie had a bad game but if we could of had a passing game willie would of been able to run. bens rust was showing like hell. every throw that was longer than 10yds was 3 yards away from the reciever. i give credit to mathis because he not quite shut down but he stopped big plays from hines.my point is that if ben could of got some 1st downs our defense wouldnt of been as tired as it was our defense was waisted. our offense was on the field for like 20 minutes when usually on for 30-35 min.

Agreed. If our D plays like that every week I would be content. Eventually we will score some points all will be good again. Give up 9 points and the D is bad? Gimme a break.

Honestly, I'm just a lay observer, but I think a lot of credit needs to be given to the Stillers D. Bangpow has a point - we're overlooking the fact that the Jags offensive crew is no joke. Factoring that into the time of possession that others have noted, they did a very commendable - if not outright tremendous - job of stopping Leftwich & the gang. Only letting nine points up when your offense isn't clicking is nothing of which to be ashamed.

I wouldn't automatically assume that they'll be able to smother the Bengals offense, but if last night's performance was any indicator, I'd say they have a good shot at posing a formidable bump in the road for Palmer, Johnson & Co....

How can anybody question the defense last night? Thats just retarded. They only gave up 9 points. Plus only 3 through 3 quarters. Come people think alittle bit before posting. It was clear that Troy's shoulder is alittle more serious then orginally thought. He was favoring his shoulder and really was only playing with one arm.

The offensive line and Ben being rusty were the main reasons we lost. No excuse though. The Jags out played us.

Um were we watching the same game. Our defense played an awesome game last night to only allow 9 points. Stop crying about it.
