Spot on.

This new rule sucks... I don't really care that it helps us or not because we're not going to be stuck with Suisham forever. That and Banks still burned our coverage regardless

They were saying that during the broadcast of the game.....just start the ball on the 20. However it did get boring seeing the skins kick every kick for a touchback!

Kick returns are what makes the game exciting. However we have horrible special teams.

The good news is that I never heard the Benny Hill Theme song during Steeler kicks.

The past 4 or 5 seasons kicking game has been a joke.

Oh I heard it during that game lol. Even with the advantage, ST's looked terrible. I know it's just preseason, and they might get better...but given their recent track record, I'm not holding my breath.
