I do not know about you guys but Haley has already succeeded in keeping Big Ben upright against bookends. It's not like Dwyer and Redman are going backwards. They are getting 2, 4, 8, 4, 6 yards. The line isnt being pushed back. I like it and they need to stick to it.

The game wasn't lost due to the play-calling; the game was lost because the Steelers O/L as a whole isn't that good, period! Doug Legursky? Are you kidding me? Why is he still there? Ramon Foster? Ok, he did better than Legursky, but these two guys are worthless. Mike Adams? Ok, he gets a pass because he's a Rookie for now, but man, this guy looked like he was planted in cement, too slow. The play-calling was great, the O/L didn't open up enough holes for the running game, settling for FG's against Peyton Manning? You will lose each time. That Pick 6? How many times have we seen this idiot take chances with the football? Yes, Ben Roethlisburger. He takes too many chances, he could have easily thrown 3 to 4 interceptions last night, he's lucky he only had 1. This guy plays like he has two personalities; he can play great for a few series, then he simply makes a bone head decision and throws a pick.

The Defense: Ziggy Hood? I didn't see anything from this guy, he doesn't seem like he belongs at all. I don't know, is it me? But I haven't seen anythin from him, he was no were to be found. And this is the guy that is in line to replace Aaron Smith? Casey Hampton? The Steelers should have dumped him two years ago, I tried to tell everybody, this guy is done! Lawrence Timmons? Did you see the wide angle he took against Peyton last night? Timmons is over-rated! The money they invested in this guy was a mistake. Ryan Mundy? Are you kidding me? This guy was horrible last night; although the secondary as a whole was bad. Keenan Lewis? He seems to think he will make the Pro-Bowl this year? Hmm, he will make it if he's the only person voting. Its only 1 game, but I don't see it. Even Cortez Allen and Troy looked pretty bad on a few plays. Chris Carter wasn't bad, but he sure as H#ll wasn't good either.

Mike Tomlin? I'm so sick and tired of this guys relax demeanor on the football field. Hey Mike! Can you get a little fired up over there? The players under his watch hasn't done so well; lets not forget, much of his success has come from players under Cowher's watch. Some of the players drafted under his watch:

(LB) Lawrence Timmons, (DE) Ziggy Hood, (S) Ryan Mundy, (LB) Thaddeus Gibson, (CB) Crezdon Butler,
(CB) Joe Burnett, (LB) Bruce Davis, (DE) Ryan McBean.

Gibson, Butler, Burnett, Davis, McBean? They all washed out. Hood, Timmons? Former 1st Round Draft Picks that hasn't lived up to the expectations.

Yes, its only one game, but I'm starting to see a huge decline on that Defensive Line, I noticed it last year. This team isn't good against the run. They don't play physical at all. Take a look at Tomlin's Demeanor on the sideline; a team normally adopts the personality of their Head Coach.

Our issues are with personnel. The play calling was fine. When you give up 24 points - there is a good chance you will lose. Our O-line is horrible... if we could run the ball our offense would be deadly.

Our defense made me very nervous about the upcoming season.

Its just the first game of the season, we got blown away last year too but ended up 12-4.
On a couple plays, if Ben would of had a little (arch) on his passes the outcome could of been a whole differnt story.
I thought it was easy to read the concern in Ben's eyes with some of the play calls, if the D line plays like they did next week, I see an 0-2 start.

Play calling didnt seem bad to me at all. Isnt this what people wanted? He used his tight ends and a FB. The OC didnt throw an INT with the game on the line. Horrible read.


+ 3 sacks in a row? C'MON MAN! 300lb road cones.

They play-calling was too conservative and predictable. If they go no-huddle early and play to their strengths, maybe Ben isn't in a position where he has to bail the rest of the team out late in a game. Don't wait until the last 3 minutes to use your best weapon. Use him early and often.

Time to get our heads out of the 70's.

Everyone was complaining they wanted to get back to "Steeler football".
