  1. Wow. Quiet today. Time to see what the Steelersvare made of. Is it grit, gristle, sinew and steel? Are the Steelers sofffff?

    Stay tuned.

    • Big hangover from that exciting Pitt win last night, Brandie. ;)

      Steelers will get a good look at how they play today.
      Steelers-Ratbirds games are very physical.

  2. I see Dejanstillskin is awake from his 40 year nap.

    He snuck in a bold reaming yesterday.
    Now the duck is gone too.

    I hope he doesnt make any predictions for game.

  3. - Key in Elvis and Suggs vs Gilbert and Beach. Ravens will be ready for short screens this week.

    - Jones on returns will be a key also. The Zoltan vs Koch is a mismatch is change of field positions.

    - Ravens/Steelers , just not what it once was.

    - Ravens pressure too much for Steelers to handle. Ravens 24-13.

    Am at work and don’t have the list here but its over 400 locations

    At least we are moving fuel now though…..

  5. DK,

    I hope this post finds you relaxed, refreshed, recharged, renewed and ready to take on anything.

    DK: Probably one re- too many, Brandie, but thanks. Really, all I did was sleep.

  6. Geno Smith is much better in the NFL than I thought he’d be.

  7. Recap of Ray Lewis’ disingenuous recap of his time in the Steelers/Ravens rivalry this morning on ESPN:

  8. Happy Information Overload Day!!!

    7-0 good guys.

  9. I have given up trying to figure out the National Football League.

  10. That was Haley’s most innovative play-calling drive ever…

    DK: A category for which there is no silver medal.

  11. This game is apparently not a national game. It is a regional game.

    They are showing the Browns-Packers game here in Cincinnati.

  12. Moye made a great catch.

  13. Where do they find these announcers? UGGGH

  14. WOODLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Is the line getting better or are the RB’s? Prolly both.

  16. Am I still allowed to complain about Haley’s play-calling? Because it still sucks, no matter how many yards Bell has.

  17. Good job by the D to keep the ratbirds out of the endzone…

  18. Well nothing like wasting a timeout Flacco.

  19. Anybody ? Testing.

  20. Typical Steelers-ratbirds matchup….good guys playing well today…matching score for score and the D stepping up in the red zone….

  21. Would be nice though to force a turnover right now…

  22. Come on D…making it look easy for the ratbirds….

  23. UGGGHHHH…dink and dunking us to death….

  24. Great job defense…way to blow a lead…..

  25. Looks like the Steelers will still be playing for a high draft pick next year…

  26. Playmakers are still absent on this defense…

  27. SANDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Good guys win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. MVP… MVP…

    Suisham is money

  30. As Jandy would say…………..

    Woop, Woop!

  31. Apparently the key to the Steelers winning is scoring exactly 19 pts…who knew??!!

  32. So glad we are on the right side of the scoreboard.

  33. My hats off to the O-Line today…..

  34. The two biggest mouths on defense (Ike and Clark) had horrible games. Willy Gay played very well.

  35. Wow…. only 73 comments on the blog for a Steeler Game !
    How the mighty have fallen….
    Buccos and Pens are kicken a$$ here!!! lol
    Steelers proly still win the rateings game.
    Strange Days……

    DK: Yeah, the Steelers probably still win the ratings game. By only about 4-to-1 or 3-to-1 at worst.
