Default Week 1 gameball goes too....

... Mendenhall.

troy saved the game ans showed why he is possibly the best player in the nfl.

jeff reed had a gameball slip off of his foot.

mendenhall ran hard all day, on a day where there wasnt much room for running (and of course, had the run to win the game).

notice it is GAMEBALL- not plural. if you split it, you are just being wishy washy... MAKE A STAND!

Hines. Showed leadership all day. Made big catches and would NOT let Dixon get down on himself. He showed his true value as a leader and captain under durress.

Mendenhall as well for me. Even though almost half his yards came on the last play, it was the biggest play of the game.

Reed almost got the game ball for me too. I was very forgiving of that 55 yarder that he JUST missed, and was ecstatic over the 52 yarder he made (new record for HF)...so I was shocked that he shanked a 40 yarder. Things that make you go hmmmm.

I would tend to agree here, Hines Ward stepped up 1st-big time to help Dixon out, then Troy, then Mendenhall, ....

I like giving game balls to guys on each side of the ball. Troy gets it on D for a clutch pick and a hell of a play. Matty Ice became Matty Iced on that play. Nice play too by Troy. And yeah without question Mendy on offense. Love seeing plays like that. That was beautiful.

Sean Kugler

The Steelers O-line played very well. Even though it was very obvious what they were doing, they were still able to handle their own. There were several open holes early but I think Mendenhall was nervous trying to hold on to the ball and not fumble so he missed a few of them. He ran well.

On pass plays there was time too. When Ben gets back he will be happy. Only one sack was their fault (Starks).

Even with the injury to Starks, he was able to sub Scott, and adjust protections to help him so we forgot Starks was gone.

Great job Kugs.

Seems the wind knocked off the 40 yarder and, if I am correct, the 52 yarder was at the other end of the field...

My game ball would go to mendenhall for the last play...

The announcers. For not making the game all about Ben's suspension. I really expected to have to mute it by the end of the first drive.
