Default How about the secondary?

Not sure if it's Gay/Lewis improving, the additions of Brown/Lewis, or Carnell Lake's coaching but this secondary looks pretty good. So glad we beat these guys. Huge win.

Props to the entire unit. They stepped their game up. They really battled those receivers for every inch the entire game.

Secondary played great, but props also to the pass rush for making Brady uncomfortable the whole game. Brady just didn't have time today to pick the Steelers apart. That said, Gay played really well against Gronkowski.

they covered like glue and also made the tackles, shutting down one of the top league QB's. Going into the season, i would have never believed this would happen today. Great game by them all.

What's great is getting a huge win but at the same time this type of win still allows our guys to be humble and focused.

Reason: They have some areas they can still improve in, mainly o production in red zone. I feel that we left at least 2 touchdowns on the board and kept it closer than it should have been.

No - not being a negative nancy - love and enjoying all the positives of this team - talk about mentally tough! No other team is as tough as this squad.

Meanwhile - a huge showdown looms at the ketchup bottle against a VERY suspect Ravens team. Hey NFL - you are officially on NOTICE - the Steelers have championship mettle . . .

I know. We had a ton of questionmarks outside of Ike in the corners. I think our young guys are finally starting to develop into good talents.
