True that - maybe the Steelers D should be applauded for holding the Titans to 26 (7 of which were due to the blocked punt)?

So it's come to that?
Bragging rights over Buffalo?

I know we're a little banged up now, but it's hardly as bad as it was last year.
What the heck are you talking about? Pouncey down. Gilbert down. Decastro down. You have got to be kidding. Legursky cannot block shit. He is the reason we got a punt kicked by someone who came right up the middle. This Oline has been just as much crap this year as it was last year. Get real.

BTW, Arians has won two games since he took over as HC of the Colts. That is as many wins as the Steelers have. Of course I hate Arians and they beat two crap teams. But he has two wins under his belt. Teams will be fighting over him next year. ; )

NBC stirs the pot in an interview with Tomlin - guess what a theme for tonight's game is going to be

Tomlin anticipates Roethlisberger-Haley incident, says it won’t be “catastrophic”

As the Steelers prepare to face the Bengals tonight and as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tries to win the mob pre-emptively by periodically nudging offensive coordinator Todd Haley toward the undercarriage of the bus, coach Mike Tomlin concedes that an incident between the two men is inevitable.

“You made a transition this year from Bruce Arians to Todd Haley,” Bob Costas asks in an interview to be aired on NBC’s Football Night in America (7:00 p.m. ET). “Ben Roethlisberger told me before the first game against Denver, ‘Every coach, at some point, their temper starts to come out. But when it comes to that time, we’ll be able to deal with it and move on.’ Has that time come yet?”

“I don’t know,” Tomlin said. “I’m usually pretty busy when they get a little down time. I’ve always got guys on the grass, as we say in this business. I’m not worried about those interactions. If it hadn’t happened already, I’m sure at some point it will and it won’t be catastrophic. I’m sure we’ll all move on.”

Tomlin seems to endorse the philosophical shift that has resulted in Roethlisberger periodically grumbling about things like the “dink-and-dunk” nature of the offense. Asked by Costas whether the new offense is successfully reining in Roethlisberger, Tomlin said, “I think we’re doing a nice job, even in the midst of running the ball as poorly as we are, because we’re minimizing negative plays. And if you minimize the negative plays, that means your quarterback is upright. That’s one of the goals that we had here for this season, along with winning more games than we have to this point.”.

BB's interview w/Costas:
Dink & dunk... yadda-yadda-yadda.... not getting sacked, and in turn, not injured... blah, blah, blah... will be available for the play-offs... derpa derka der... seventh SuperBowl... shizzle...

Who truly cares about the "small" differences??? BB is healthier, has a league-leading completion percentage, and is two converted third downs away from being 4-1. Let him complain about dinking & dunking... as long as he's playing in February.

There's a contingent of people out there who won't be satisfied until Roethlisberger and Haley dancing salsa together and making out at a local pub
