Default Salty Peter King Cause His Buddy Brady Lost.....

"Hines Ward wrestling Ed Reed to the ground on the first snap of Steelers-Ravens. You think the officials aren't going to be calling this one closely? Bad decision by Ward."

That was a good block Mr. King.......If your New England boys blocked
like this, maybe they would be hosting the Steelers next week........

" Rashard Mendenhall running laterally. Get upfield, man"

You run against Ray Lewis Mr. King..........See where you end up most of the time.........

"Mike Tomlin using one of two replay challenges to gain 14 yards on the opening kickoff. Not important enough play to use one of your two precious challenges, coach."

Yards are at a premium against the Ravens Mr. King.......
We gotta take em where we can get em......


"Ray Rice trucking Troy Polamalu. He'll put that one on the personal highlight film back in New Rochelle."

Troy used his hard hitting low tackling shot on Ray.......It didn't work.
Ray's center of gravity is lower than most runners and Troy didn't
Take this into account......Troy did not get Trucked Mr. King...........
Though that was an awesome run by Ray Rice.......


"I think Rashard Mendenhall, two touchdowns Saturday and all, is just not a big-time back."

Again, you try and run against Mr Lewis and the Ravens and see
how that turns out Mr. King......I think Mendy Did just fine with 2 goal line scoring plunges.......That second one was legedary........
He took on the whole pile........


"Third on the list: Safety Ryan Clark. With Troy Polamalu staying off the line of scrimmage all night, missing two tackles and generally being invisible, Clark forced two third-quarter turnovers that led to touchdowns. He played his best game as a Steeler"

Well Mr King.......If you watched the Steelers, you would know that
Ryan Clark has had many great games........The Media(you) is just all
up in the Patriots asses too much to notice.......Didn't Mr Clark knock
out Willis MaGahee along with the ball in the 08 Championship
game?......I do remember someone knocking your best buddy
Wes Welker out in a game that season too.....Tell me Mr. King..
Who was that guy.................

You're kidding right? Ward's opening shot on Reed was completely illegal. I'm not saying uncalled for, but it was a legit penalty.

Frankly, I've not been overwhelmed by Rashard, either. he's been good at times, and I loved the extra effort times three that he used to get in the endzone, but Mendenhall at this point does not look like one of the 5 best backs in the league. it is what it is.

Troy did get trucked on that first TD run, and he also whiffed on the TD reception. It is what it is.

This probably was Clark's best game. He's been a solid performer for years, and a huge hitter, but he's never impacted a game as much as this one.

And as for bias, King has long been considered one of the most Steeler friendly reporters out there.

mendenhall not a big time back? he's smoking rocks. wait till our o-line is upgraded, he will explode. out of all the runners in the nfl he has one of the best combinations of speed and strength that i've seen.

hell, being the #7 rusher behind our o-line deserves a medal

Not ready to lump Peter King in with Michael Irvin quite yet

King threw some props the Steelers way in his Sunday column on the game

Steelers' fighting spirit rings true in heart-stopping win over Ravens

There's a reason why the Steelers have been so good for so long. The system gets the coaches the players, the players get coached, and the players fit into the roles the old Steelers like Jack Lambert and Terry Bradshaw and Mike Webster defined; and before you know it, James Harrison (three sacks against Baltimore), Roethlisberger (two touchdowns, 101.8 rating, seventh straight win over the hated Ravens) and Maurkice Pouncey (a brute force in the middle of the line, though a rookie) take their place, and play big in big games the way their predecessors did.

Fat boy Peter King predicted Steelers in the SB. As far as Rashard not being a great back, they wore him out this year, similar to what they did with FWP. You cannot have a RB with 340+ carries in this day and age. Gotta split the load. And running behind third string OLineman against a top 5 defense isn't the easiest thing to do.

I was going to say he predicted the Steelers and Packers too. He might be gloating after next week. I can't remember which of the two he predicted would win it all.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe I remember him being the only sportswriter who predicted the Steelers to win it all.

True, however, he did that well before the season started, and I believe reneged on his prediction on at least two occasions, like during Ben's suspension, and of course after the Patriots win in Pittsburgh. Peter King abandoned the Steelers long ago. He gets no cred.

I didn't know that, Ric. Thanks for the update. I just knew I heard he predicted a Steelers SB win before the season started.

wow...sounds very bitter.

1. What about all the times Hines gets hit late or helmet-to-helmeted?? What about that, sir?? Answer??
2. I'm not in total agreement with his Mendy comments, but i don't think he's in the top 5 in the league either. As many carries as he had, he should have led the league in rushing.
3. They find one play Troy gets smoked on (happens to everyone, even Reed) and they super-overanalyze the thing.
