Yep it was a hell of a show - unfortunately it played a distant second to watching the Patriots lose a key home battle against a division rival on gamecast.

I dont think a team recovers from blowing as a big a lead as Cincy did last night- not this season anyway.

Im guessing these are the type of games that the NFL was looking for when it handicapped the DB's and wrapped the QB in cotton wool.

I enjoy a real defensive grind of a game also - as long as its big hits and big plays - not just inept offense.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

LITP - with regard to yesterday's Bengals-Chargers and Steelers-Saints basketball games, defensive coaches will catch up somehow.

I remember in the early 80s when not only the Niners but the early Gibbs Redskins, Bengals with Ken Anderson, and Air Coryell were unstoppable (I even remember Lynn Dickey and a mediocre Green Bay team getting in a high 40s shootout on a Monday night game). It did not appear that D could adjust to the tougher rules imposed after the 1974-76 Steelers D shut everyone down, but then Buddy Ryan invented the 46 defense and the original LT revolutionized the pass rush.

I would say you are probably right - D coaches obviously spend alot of time breaking down footage and working out schemes to stop these high powered offenses.

I see quite alot of player evolution on offense - WR that look like TE's and vice versa - a slight shift towards two headed running attacks - where as the guys on D are having to be reactive - there was alot of talk about speedy DB's being the only way to combat the re-emphasised pass interference rules - the jump ball in the endzone seems to be back in vogue.

I guess if there was no re-emphasis of certain rules and adjustments to help offense then scoring would grind to a halt...im not sure I believe that but the NFL seems to.

I like the NFL the way it is today - I still think guys with good speed and technique can play with today's wide-outs - you forgot the run and shoot of the early 90s - I thought for a while it was going to be what the NFL evolved to - I'm glad it didn't - I imagine if the Bills had won a couple of SBs it might have taken hold more - I'm happy it's gone, but if you still want to see it - June Jones is keeping it alive and well in the Aloha state

*finger* to ESPN. I wasn't able to see the game in my area. I figured I'd get to see atleast one of Willie's runs, but no. The only "highlight" shown was Bush diving into the endzone. Freakin a.

$174.... plus the DirectTV service.

Sorry, but I'm already pissed off about my $54 cable bill each month. Yeah I love my Steelers, but I can't afford to get more expensive.
