Stupid...That big bomb was their 3rd best receiver against Deshea, and he was 1 yard out of position...they tried surprise and it worked but just barely. We played a Helluva game against a passing team. Remember 2003? We set out to address this weakness, and we just did in a playoff game, the first win ever on the road, and the first ever underdog win for Cowher.

There were definitely some issues in the secondary, today. At least most of the problems were underneath and not over the top. I guess it's not too bad to give up yards under the safeties but if Pittsburgh does the same thing against the Colts, they're going to get drilled. Indy has four guys -- Harrison, Wayne, Stokely, and even Clark -- that can turn intermediate routes in to TD's. Cincy's ability to cash in on third down is also a little troubling. Thankfully, Kitna remembered he was Kitna. Pittsburgh is not facing a backup next week so they're going to have to tighten up or it's bad news.

couldnt agree with you more. ike is LIGHTS out, but if he could catch the ball he would be a pro bowl.

ill say it again, Ike Taylor - a star in the making

To be fair to our secondary, it looked to me like #71 (Anderson) was getting away with a lot of offensive holding when Cincy had the ball in the first half. It was interesting that our first defensive stop used schemes that pretty much minimized Anderson's impact (he's also a damn good lineman even when he's not holding). I don't know if that adjustment was intentional, but I was impressed!

Ike Taylor is young and only going to get better. Townsend could go for all I care but we've got at LEAST one more game with him so we've got to make the best of it. The Steelers should be watching that SD/Colts film all week. SD was all over Manning and whatever they did worked.

Actually our D held Manning pretty much in check after that opening 80 yard disaster last time we met.

I'd love to see the NFL call the game next week after they discover the Colts piping the crowd noise through open mics!

have to give credit to our guys for sticking to it and calming down and playing good solid coverage in the 2nd half.

we need that second half effort all game next week !

They are young, and I think it shows. But what I do like about them is the way they really can turn it on at some points; at least we know the ability is there.

Do you guys think they are making more mental mistakes than actually getting physically beat? It's so hard to tell on the TV.

Here we go.
