Gotta give mine to Hines. The old man showed he still haves it.

Well done McFadden ... welcome back home!


McFadden ... 12 tackles and 2 assists ... HUGE!
He did OK. White's 13 catches for 111 yards just exposed a weakness in the steelers D...the quick pass to the flats. While this had been known, this will remind teams. Yeah...It could have been worse but I wouldn''t give im a game ball.

Coach Tomlin for the way he called the timeout to 'freeze' the kicker. Anyone else see that?

He still made the 2nd attempt, but I couldn't stop laughing at how he called it.

Mendenhall. He kept us out of 3rd and long in many cases, especially when we had poor field position (so many times). 2nd & 5, 2nd & 6 was better than FWP's 2nd & 12's he (too often) left us with...

Not to mention, of course, the last play of the game.

Hines Ward. The old man can still get it done.

Loved Hines, thought he played a great game. Timmons too. Can you say breakout season? But after more thought I've decided to go with Troy Polamalu. Besides his great interception, you can just see how the defense plays with more confidence with him in there. Truly a game changer.

Timmons - You will not see this on the box score but he was like a hungry Mountain Lion chasing Gazelles.

Sep - Cant say enough about the long & high hang time kicks where we got good coverage and change of field position.
