Default FAST WILLIE EMERGING AS A LEADER

Willie backed up his comments this week on the field with his two long runs today. He is emerging as a leader on this team. Maybe his comments is a wake up call this team needed, even though he should've kept them in house. HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!!! Let's finish this game off and let's start a new streak!

That was a hell of an effort by Willie today - he's been good all season but he made the key momentum changing plays today.

I thought Ben had a good game today also.

Maybe this is the beginning of the long road back to the playoffs for the Steelers?

Who knows?

im sure that bengal and partiot fans will still insist he is a "flash in the pan" cause he only gets his yards on long runs.

but willie still proved to be the answer today.

willie is the 1st player with 2 70+ td runs in a game since 1997 (barry sanders)

kudos for giving credit where credit is due, (even though it contradicts previous litp statements)

(i dont think 10-6 makes the playoffs in the afc, without winning the division of course.- you never know though)

Ben played good today too! The entire O looked good. The D needs to tackle better and step it up on 3rd down. Let's go Clown killing next week!

I believed those statements to be true at the time I made them.

I have been very impressed with Willie all this year pretty much - I like his understated, business-like way he has on the football field - he doesnt seem to go over board with choreographed celebrations.

Its a bit like my opinion of Cowher, I downgraded him in the past becasue he couldnt win the big one - then he went and done it - so credit is earned and given.

I missed the 2nd big run, but Willie used great vision to see that gap opening for a split second at the beginning of the 1st 70 yarder - we hear plenty about how fast he is, but his ability see the hole and hammer through it is underrated.

I hope we beat the clowns next weekend, but they looked pretty decent today in their win against the falcons. We have to bring our A game every game.
