Default Titans victory is bigger than just a W

Just thinking, the ratbirds lost to the Titans. Looks like all we need to do is take care of our business and the Ratbirds meltdowns will continue to hamper their hope of dominating the division

I was thinking the same thing, actually. It'll be interesting to see what we can do with the Jaguars. They aren't nearly as talented as the Titans, and we smoked the Titans. If we don't beat these guys pretty bad, we didn't handle our business during the week.

Either that or Tomlin and Arians agreed on starting Mendenhall at Half Back

It's no doubt that Smith and Mendy were holding us back, as was Arians usual playbook. We played Steelers football and dominated without those two and with logical play calling. It was more then a win because everybody was stepping up and the team looked like lasy years SB team just with better offense. It's in the coaches hands from what I see, cause when the correct players are on the field and the correct plays are being called we play well.

Also, our QB had a great game instead of getting batted around all day. I think the rest of the league has to fear a completely confident Roethlisberger, who has not been present and accounted for in some time.

OverReaction Much???

Im not getting thrilled about this Titans W until we follow up on it.

This Dr.Jekyll/Mr. Hyde BS has to stop if the Steelers want to compete this year

Improvement from week to week is what Im looking for.....We need to show some growth in these next two games....MJD will be another test for our questionable Run D....and then we have to avoid one of those let down games against the Cards that the Steelers are known for.

If we make steady improvements through those two games and put up a decent fight against NE.....don't have to win but No Regression!!!....then I'll feel a little better about this teams ability to compete

seems like so far the team plays well in front of the home crowd but is terrible in away games. if they can remedy that, then this season should be another playoff year

Well, so far we're beating the teams we're supposed to beat, which means we should be no worse than 12-4 or 13-3 by season's end.

I think one other person holding us back was Scott. He seemed to be a little better on the right side but I think that is because the tight ends and RBs helped on that side. Starks was a life saver. Essex can go climb back under the stump they dug him out from.

The big difference on offense (and Big Ben said it himself) is they stopped going for the big play every down and went back to the small ball. Short passes to Hines and Heath put them over the top. Great game and excellent help from the young guys. Truly loved the punt fake.
