I don't even know who to give the game ball to today...so many people played so well. I'll give it to Arians and the entire offense though. They did a heck of a job despite injuries and penalties galore.

Arians called a good game
The D played well
special teams were good
the refs, not so good
The sky's the limit when we put it all together

I am happy. Was frustrated last week but I think especially considering penalties galore the team bounced back in a wonderful way. Great team effort really.

You do have to give Arians some credit. I know he's hated here and understandably so but we were getting TDs in the Red Zone instead of settling for FGs. D did a nice job too after a rough first drive. We made Darren McFadden a complete non-factor.

I really think Harrison should get the game ball

after getting pushed around by the refs, he definitely deserves this

for the 1st time in a long time i think everybody deserves a gameball. the coaching staff kept the players heads in it despite a dozen bogus flags.

arians and lebeau rebounded with their gameplan and play calling. the players executed beautifully. special teams were great.

i guess james harrison gets the ball.

he looked like an unstopable leader out there. he was disruptive, made splash plays, and didt get frustrated with the BS calls.

plus he was gentelmanly with the qb whose ass he was kicking.

Overall a good bounce back for the defense.

Offense is still poor and a work in progress Had this been against a team with a more than capable offense, this could have been a tight game. Case in point is that they squandered several outstanding positions on the field in Oakland territory. Generally, there's a lack of killer instinct with this offense. Given their possessions, they should have put up at least 40+ points, maybe a 50 burger.

I will credit Arians for at least trying to throw more on first down though. Also, they need to start games off with long drives and get points. Going three and out game in and game out is unacceptable.

Goodell's hand-chosen officiating crew did their best to thwart the Rooney's and the Steelers but came up a bit short. For the sake of the integrity of the game, that officiating crew should never ever be allowed officiate a game again. They need to immediately lose their jobs. The worst and most one-sided officiating I have ever seen in my life and I am normally not one to go on about the officials....but this sets the standard for incompetence and bias.

Richard Seymour: Where is the media outrage on this? I see nothing on the NFL network or on the CBS halftime show. A defensive lineman tees off on a star QB and no outrage or commentary? If this is Harrison, it is front page news everywhere.
Given the NFL's disciplinary record, Seymour should get a fine of 250k and a 4 game suspension for a blatant attempt to injure a star QB. Could you imagine the outrage if this was Brady or Manning? Right now, we hear nothing because it was on Ben. Total double standard. They still got time to roll with this story but if they don't, I know that it is official. The NFL, and the national media are anti-Steeler.

And oh, game ball goes to Harrison for keeping a level head and overcoming the players and officials who did all they could to stop him.
