Default Holy crap, how good is this team exactly?

I know it's a little early in the season, but the teams we beat this year have been dominant in all their games except when they played us.

Atlanta just took down the defending champs at their house, Tennessee continued to look tough dominating the giants in NY. Tampa bay is an up and coming team that should bounce back.

And we don't even have ben back yet. Starting to look like a 'super' season already?

I honestly think even with playing all our QB's weekly, including a 3rd and 4th string, that we looked like the best team in the NFL considering the competition and consistency weekly. We now see how days could go if we eek out just a LITTLE bit of offense. This team is "SUPER" scary!

If the team gets behind Ben and we our unified, then barring injury, we're going to be really tough to beat


The thing is, once Ben gets back, we need to stick with the same gameplan and not get all pass happy

Ben isn't going to be up to speed anyways,so we should continue to play smashmouth and let Ben do the damage on PA

The way Mendenhall is running and getting that HUGE burst, this could be the kind of scary balance that the Rooney's yelled out for in the off-season. I'm seriously sitting here having wet-dreams of what this team could be like once 7 returns. Anticipation is killer. BRING ON BALTIMORE in our house.

Agreed. The O-line was very good today. They opened holes and protected well. Team played Steeler football. I hope it's not forgotten come week 6.

Exactly. Ben could throw 4 interceptions in his first game against the Browns, and totally screw up the rest of the season.

H-E-A-L-T-H. If we can stay fairly healthy, then we are a Super Bowl contender. We lost all of our games last year by 7 points or less because of missing ingredients. We have Timmons catching on and 100% healthy, Troy, Smith and even B-mac making a difference. 2 TD's allowed in 3 games ( all garbage.) Health is key.
