Default Nice Result

Well Steeler fans,

looks like your team got it done in fine style on MNF.

Totally forgot to tape the game - but looking at the game stats looks like a bit of a defensive struggle - just what the Steelers would have wanted.

Impressive shutdown on LT and Gates - everyone says this is the key to victory - saying it and doing it are two very different things - believe me I know.
It certainly makes for another interesting triumverate of playoff potential teams -

Chargers, Steelers and Patriots - all beating each other but no team recording two victories.

Another one to keep our eyes on will be the Pats, Steelers and Colts results - some huge games coming up there I feel.

Best wishes to Ben - a speedy recovery would be nice to see - any news on his status yet?

Cheers

NM

Well as long as it only costs him a game or two that would be ok - nothing too serious.
Was it a helmet to knee incident, was Ben scrambling or in the pocket?

Yeah it was a helluva game Past... Defensive struggle at times, but at times the offenses were in high gear.

Troy P was aboslutely insane, all over the place jacking up Gates left and right.

What the hell were you getting at? Speak English

We should have beat the pats and everyone knows it, now we just beat the team that kicked your a$$ up and down the field. Spew off all the jibberish you want, but everyone knows now who is the stronger team. The Steelers! What a sweet victory against a team that made the patsie puffs their b!tches! Oh hell yea I love it!

Having someone as physical as Troy P in the backfield to cover someone like Gates or a Crumpler is an absolute must - our DB/LB doesn't have anyone with the required strength/speed combo to stay with them.

Im sure you Steeler fans loved the gritty effort by the D - and having a bit of explosion of offense cant hurt either can it?

Cheers

Ah ok Thx for the info. Doesn't sound deliberate or anything so that is something I suppose im sure he will be just fine - doesnt seem like the type to sit out games if he aint 100% !!

Still no INT's either from Big Ben either eh?

Cheers

It really was an exciting game. They actually used Miller more which made me happy. Ward got some good looks and Bettis had a hell of a come back!

Well we had a similar thing on the Pats board - lots of posts about how our TE's were being under utilised for actually catching the ball and creating mismatches instead of just being used as over paid linemen!

Hey - maybe the coaches have their eye on these boards after all

Cheers
