Default Michael Oher

first off, this isn't an excuse thread, so don't take it that way.. we lost the game all by ourselves.

it seemed like Oher was either getting off the snap incredibly fast or was false starting. the group of us watching the game stood up and shouted false start on numerous occasions, but nothing was ever called. was it just us? we were at a sports bar with a large HD projector screen.. i didn't have the clearest view of the screen like i do when i am home, so maybe we just didn't see it clearly.

There were a couple times when I thought the same thing, but just assumed that his reactions are that good.

I saw the same thing and once I noticed it i started watching for it - I do not believe it is a matter of his reactions being that good

But as was stated to start the thread that is not me looking for an excuse - the play of the D after the Steelers went up 14-10 brought back bad memories of 2008

the group I was watching the game with noticed it too... There were like 2 or 3 in the 4th quarter alone.

I did the same thing...That being said. I think the dude's good. He kept Harrison in check the entire game. Wish we had him...

in the end things balance out. even if there were a few false starts, what about the PI penalty that should have been called on Gay (I think it was him) on that 4th and goal? obviously it all proved irrelevant since we won, but penalties generally balance out.

Oher is a beast, nothing more, nothing less.

and it was a good game regardless.

Eh I think we beat Baltimore pretty comfortably when returns barring any significant injury to our defense. They didn't impress me in any phase of the game.

When your so-called SB bound team is a first down/30 seconds away from losing to a 4th string QB, you know you've got problems.

that argument is ridiculous. Charlie is still a pro. any team can lose on any day. surely you remember the embarrassing losses the Steelers had last year? I mean no disrespect, but c'mon. good teams lose to bad teams all the time. packers almost lost to the lions. saints almost lost to the panthers. indy lost to the jaguars. bengals lost to the browns. are all these teams suddenly crappy and have problems? everyone in the league is pro for a reason.

I'm not sure many Ravens fans think we're bound for a SB, either. if they are, they're delusional. we still have offensive and defensive work to do.

Oher had 4 false starts. It's completely ridiculous the refs couldn't flag him for even 1 (can't even complain about all the holding penalties that were missed because that's a weekly occurrence). Guess the refs couldn't see that 360 lbs guy on the end of the line jumping early.

But I have to say the Steelers appeared completely flat. I kept saying this game wasn't going our way and in the end ... it didn't. 3-1 without our starting QB is pretty respectable. A week off and the Brownies next should help get Ben ready to win some games.
