Default Penn: Steelers 'won the luck battle'

Penn: Steelers ‘won the luck battle’
by Tom Balog
Source: Hearald-Tribune.com


TAMPA _ To Buccaneers offensive tackle Donald Penn, the Pittsburgh Steelers are not the team that scored five touchdowns, rushed for 201 yards on a 6.3- yard average, sacked Buccaneers quarterbacks four times, forced two takeaways and won by 25 points on Sunday.

”They won the ‘luck battle,’ ” Penn said after the Steelers’ 38-13 victory over the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. “They had two lucky plays.”

He was referring to the ball that cornerback Aqib Talib tipped into the hands of Mike Wallace for the Steelers’ second touchdown and the fumble by rookie wide receiver Mike Williams, where the ball flew up into the hands of Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark.

He compared Wallace’s touchdown to the one scored two weeks ago by Williams off a tipped ball in the end zone in the Buccaneers’ 17-14 season-opening win over the Cleveland Browns.

”The ball went our way that time. It went their way this time,” Penn said. “We can’t help that.”

The Steelers defense hurried more than a dozen throws by Tampa Bay quarterbacks, and helding the Buccaneers to 75 yards rushing.

But Penn said the point differential was not an indication of the high level of physicality of the Steelers as opposed to that of the Buccaneers.

”They won the score, they didn’t win the physical battle,” Penn said. “Go ask them. I know they have a lot of respect for us. As an offensive line, I know they have a lot of respect for us.

”Go watch the film. Please,” Penn said. “Because I was throwing those guys around. I was banging those guys more than anything.”

None of what he said made no sense to me and it is downright funny... lucky? Sounds like a real good football team who had worked hard putting a can of whoop ass on them to me...

To Buc fans credit - the majority of comments following this story were criticizing Penn for uttering such bombastic comments - however, there were a few who agreed with him "100%"

LOL

So when the ball "bounces their way" they barely beat a reeling Brownies team, but when it bounces against them they get RAPED.

Fine, take your 14 points, its still 24-13 with a gimme touch down at the end, so why not make it 24-6. Oh yeah, with our 4th string QB.

And the best part is he's crying about physicality. Maybe he did beat up some defenders, but last I checked football is a team sport, and his teammates allowed 4 sacks where ours gave up how many? Was it zero?

Pretty sure the Steelers outplayed the Bucs in every phase of the game and won every major statistical battle, unless there's a stat that measures bruises or something to somehow support the idea of superior physicality.

Yeah, try again.

I thought those two long throws were lucky but you have to be good to be lucky as they say. And they did more than enough to win convincingly.
