Anytime you can hold a team to a FG after a turnover in your territory it's a win for the defense.

Odd play selection the last two calls. I guess Cowher wants to establish the running game. Personally, I think if you're having success, you keep doing that until the other side adjusts. Probably explains why Cowher's a millionaire and I'm posting on a message board.

Thats because Rothlisberger (sp?) missed only one pass, so the clock always ran.

They've handled the blitz better than the Pats did last week. That's what happens when you have a good offensive line.

I really want to see the Steelers win it all.

Since the Pats are out, I might as well root for this years Manning Killer ;)

Plus Jerome deserves a ring

It wouldn't surpise me at all if they traded leads a couple of times today (although I hope they don't. :)

Re: "I don't like da steelers - they beat my Bengals! Go Denver!!!"

I'd rather the team that beat me win the Superbowl...

BTW when Palmer went down, that was it even when your #2 did okay...

Speaking of which, hear anything about Matt Light?

Chump Bailey gets beat again. That kid is a legend in his own mind, more so than Louis Wright or Dennis Smith. Larry Coyer better make some adjustments.

I figured the Steelers were gonna blow the doors off of Denver. The few Denver games I saw this year, they seemed sort of lackluster. But the Steelers were showing the form they had in the 70's and early 80's when they were a force to be reckoned with!

Our freakin Patriots were kicking Denvers arse all over the field. I have never in three decades of watching football seen a team totally destroy itself as they did last week.

And before anyone mentions it.......

Your damn right I am bitter! Denver deserved to win because of the Patriots performance. Just don't tell me Denver "beat" them.

It's still early but after last week you can bet that the Steelers won't let up until the last seconds run off the clock.

Yep, the game was over when Palmer was hurt. I've never liked the steelers although Bettis seems like one of the good guys. I hope he does well if this is his last game.
