2017 Week 6 Steelers Vs Chiefs Live Update And Discussion Thread – First Half

The Steelers, with the Ravens’ looking like they will lose today, should that hold up, are guaranteed to retain possession of their lead in the AFC North, given that the Bengals are on a bye week, sitting at 2-3. With a win, they could move to 4-2 as the only team in the division with a winning record.

The Steelers have continually been tantalizingly close to full health all season, but once again have fallen short, as Ramon Foster has been declared out for today’s game, the only injury scratch of the day.

Notable inactives are Justin Hunter, Arthur Moats, and Xavier Grimble. Hunter was active over Eli Rogers at wide receiver for the past two weeks, but that has now been reversed. Moats loses a special teams helmet in favor of getting James Harrison on defense and on the field. Grimble as the third tight end is evidently less valuable than Chris Hubbard now that Marcus Gilbert is back.

Grimble’s inactive status helps get rookie cornerback Brian Allen a helmet. This is pure speculation on my part, but the team did use Justin Gilbert to cover Travis Kelce last year for a few snaps, and when he was out, they used Al-Hajj Shabazz to cover tight end. They like the option of a big body in the slot, and they have only been using Mike Hilton and William Gay there.

In the meantime, the Bears managed to allow the Ravens to tie the game from eight points down on a punt return. They already had a fluky kick return for a touchdown when the returner was knocked down by his own teammate and everybody assumed the play was dead.

And thank you Jordan Howard. The Bears running back, who walked off a win in overtime against the Steelers, set the Bears up for a win over the Ravens in overtime with a 53-yard run. So as the Steelers head onto the field to receive the opening kickoff, they are set up to be guaranteed retention of their division lead.

Speaking of which, the kickoff went deep and was fielded by JuJu Smith-Schuster for a touchback. On first down, out of a 12 set, Le’Veon Bell kicked things off with a four-yard run up the middle. A quick bubble screen to Smith-Schuster went for five. On third and one, they burned a timeout, already. The Steelers plugged in Terrell Watson, who got the conversion.

Off a slant-flat combo, Roethlisberger found Brown on the slant for 12 to the 49. Bell added three yards on the following play across midfield. Staying on the ground, he was able to slip through for seven yards and the first down.

A safety run blitz blew up the next carry for a loss of three yards. This time James Conner checked in and they stayed on the ground, hitting the counter trey for 10 to make it third and three. Roethlisberger was unable to free himself out of a sack on third down, dropped by Dee Ford as he got inside of Alejandro Villanueva off a chip from Bell. That is at least the second sack allowed this year off a Bell chip for Villanueva.

Jordan Berry punted to the 11, but Tyreek Hill returned it to the 16 for a net of about 25 yards. On first down, Kareem Hunt was stopped for no gain. Gaining penetration, Stephon Tuitt drew a hold on second down. The following play led to a bad snap that went out of the end zone for a safety. The Chiefs are starting a backup center.

Unbelievably, the Steelers failed to recover the free kick, allowing the Chiefs to fall on it at the 31-yard line, demonstrating astounding individual incompetence, with Antonio Brown and Smith-Schuster in position to field the ball. After a three-yard run on first down, T.J. Watt ran Hunt out of bounds after a yard off a pass. Artie Burns was able to break up the pass on third down to force the Chiefs to settle for a field goal, giving them a 3-2 lead.

Off the touchback, Bell was able to pick up about 15 up the right sideline, aided by the window dressing of a possible reverse to Martavis Bryant. Off a quick five-yarder to Brown, Roethlisberger pumped, looking for Jesse James vertically, but he couldn’t bring it in. A defensive hold gave them a first down.

On the following play, Roethlisberger’s long ball was just a foot too deep for an outstretched Vance McDonald. Shows how close this offense has been all year long. A completely ineffective draw gained one yard. On third and nine at midfield, they stayed on the ground, however, pulling Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro to find the right edge, Bell showing patience for 10 yards.

At the 40, he got free again for about 13, Roosevelt Nix leading the way, DeCastro also having pulled left. Trying to get Bryant in space on a bubble screen, the wide receiver was able to partially shake Marcus Peters for seven yards. Another naked screen to Brown picked up six and a new set up downs, but Smith-Schuster was flagged for a hold, his fifth penalty of the year.

A spot foul, that made it second and nine, going back to Bell on the ground picking up nine yards up the middle, now for a new set of downs.

Bell again spun forward for a six-yard gain, 10th carry for 63 yards. From the 11, he squeaked forward for the first down and more, getting about nine or 10 to set up first and goal at the top of the second quarter. From the three, Bell punched it in for his fourth rushing touchdown of the season…and then drew a flag for his celebration. Still, 9-3 one play into the second quarter.

The kickoff coming from the 20 because of the penalty, the Chiefs were able to return the kick out to about the 34. James Harrison checked into the game…and dropped into coverage…and made the tackle on Tyreek Hill after a five-yard gain. On second down, Mike Hilton completely blew up a wide pitch to Hill for a loss of nine yards. Exceptional play and effort from the first-year player. Now third and 19, following a false start, Hilton helped to funnel in a screen for just a five-yard gain, forcing a third consecutive three-and-out–well, two three-and-outs and a three-and-kick-a-field-goal.

From the 32, Roethlisberger hit Bryant in stride on a deep slant for a catch and run down to the Chiefs’ 47 for 20. Back to the ground, Bell got tripped up for just a short gain. With Conner checking in, he lowered the shoulder off the right end, but was run out of bounds after about three yards. Now third and five, Conner still in, Roethlisberger threw an interception to Peters looking for Brown. Looked like miscommunication, the receiver stopping his route.

Alex Smith nearly gave it back on a deep shot too long for Travis Kelce, Joe Haden coming up over the top to try to make a play on the ball. After a four-yard gain from Hill, Smith went empty on third and six, a deep ball falling harmlessly deep into the end zone not near anybody. Another three-and-out for the 32-points-per-game Chiefs offense.

After downing a punt at the one, naturally, the only thing to do is throw deep to McDonald, who made his first catch as a Steeler for 26 yards. A short pass to Bell went for six. On second and four,  with James in the backfield, an inside screen to Bell surrounded by red herrings was blown up for a loss. On third and seven, out of four wide, it was Smith-Schuster making the touch catch for 15.

Bell spun forward for about four yards a yard shy of midfield on the following play. He showed excellent patience waiting for the play to develop in front of him around the pulls of DeCastro and James for six yards to the Chiefs’ 45 and a first down.

Under five minutes to play in the first half, Roethlisberger dropped back and hit Brown open down the field, slipping through two defenders for extra yardage and a 26-yard gain to the 19.

Inside the red zone for the second time, the handoff went to Bell around the left end for 16, setting up another first and goal, putting the back over 100 yards on the day. From the two, looking to throw, Roethlisberger had no play, so threw the ball away. Staying on the ground, the Chiefs were able to penetrate and got to Bell for a loss of four. Now third and goal from the six, Bell split out wide. Looking for him, Roethlisberger’s pass was incomplete. Boswell did finish off the drive to give the Steelers a 12-3 lead.

After Hunt was stopped for no gain, Smith checked down to Chardandrick West, the defense swarming to stop him after nine on the other side of the two-minute warning. Hunt finally got the Chiefs’ first new set of downs of the game, at the 37 with 1:23 to play. Vince Williams was able to sack Smith on the following play, and then there was a false start. He had nobody to throw to on the following play, but there were offsetting penalties on the play, roughing the passer on Dupree and intentional grounding. Replay second and 21. Williams got him again as the half ended.

    WTF are the bears doing???

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Just unbeleiveable.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I don’t know – I thought the pick-6 iced it, but they came back obviously.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I thought the game was basically over too…just waiting on the damn Pats/Jets game to get over and then the real Bears team showed up.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Haha, Adrian Peterson already has 54 yards and a td.

  • Jaybird

    Bears are just making mistake after mistake.

  • alevin16

    That was not a BS call, if it stood it would have been bad for the Patriots and we just cannot have that!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    LOL. that’s not in my control.

  • alevin16

    I try not to predict the Steelers games (mainly because I am almost always wrong) but I will predict that the Rams destroy the Jags

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Let’s get it!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Big run by Bears

  • T-51b

    Jordan Howard is great. None of that dancing around that Bell does.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, no idea about his future, but Trubisky definitely looks like a rookie back there.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Steelers starting on 25

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    lets see how they respond time to see what this team is made of

  • Shannon Stephenson

    He had been bad to say it nicely but no one to throw it too either

  • alevin16

    I would love to see Nix leading

  • Kevin Schwartz

    How bad is Tampa Bay’s defense, because AP is tearing them up.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Bears lining up for FG about 40 yards

    sigh time out in the first 1:21?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Now on to the Steelers

  • Shannon Stephenson

    gotta love Tomlin

  • Chad Sanborn

    thank god

  • Shannon Stephenson

    first down baby

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    no long pass on 3rd and 1 love it

  • alevin16

    Little disappointed I wanted to see a high risk bomb /S

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    AB!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    first down

  • Michael Mosgrove

    that was on ben. not tomlin.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lmao

  • Chad Sanborn

    nooooo

  • Darth Blount 47

    What’s good, Steeler Nation?!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I still blame Tomlin

  • Dorian James

    Good to see Nix out there early

  • Michael Mosgrove

    illogical.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Salute!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    we will see

  • Darth Blount 47

    Fam!

  • Dorian James

    Why bother Tomlin haters have their mind already made up

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    good dip bell

  • Darth Blount 47

    It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood….

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    keep running tire out their defense

  • pdupuis

    Check back in a few hours.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    its a joke…thanx for playing

  • Darth Blount 47

    Oh yeah, pound that ball, Bell!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    so far so good

  • DirtDawg1964

    Think our loss against the Bears was bad? The Bears shanked a punt in OT, setting up the Ravens at their 40 yard line. The went three and out but downed the punt around the 5 yard line. They promptly gave up a 53 yard run and then on 3rd and long, Trubisky converts a long throw. They kick a FG.

    Losing like that, to a guy making his second career start, would make you think Tomlin was coaching. Right? LOL!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Nice run, rook!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    ditto

  • Chad Sanborn

    Connor Watson and Bell all have carries

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ravens lose!!!

    Whatever else happens, we got that going for us, which is nice.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Villy…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Ben you idiot

  • DirtDawg1964

    And in a bad way. Check out my previous note. Delicious!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    REALLY BEN PITCH IT TO SOMEONE OR THROW IT AWAY. YOU MORON!

  • Chad Sanborn

    welp

  • dany

    love using Conner there, different run styles, keep them on their toes

  • Danny Porter

    Can’t see the game
    What happened

  • ayub

    Sack

  • melblount

    Automatic sack by Bad Ben. If we’re in FG range on 3rd down, we should just down the ball. MORON QB.

  • dany

    as they should

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben was stupid. dee ford rushed he had the opp to pitch it to about 3 different people or throw it away and he took the sack.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Ben took a sack that put them out of FG range…held ball too long

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Let’s see how the defense looks. I called Deebo with 0 tackles; 0 sacks but a pick 6.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, definitely should help both of them if the defense can’t get accustomed to either running style.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Wow, the love for Ben around here is unbelievable these days.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Al with the bad footwork

  • Paul RK

    AV gave up another sack…..

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Like he did versus Denver in regulation a few years ago

  • Darth Blount 47

    How about 2?

  • Chris92021

    Awful blocking by Villanueva, even after he got help from Bell. Good effort by Ford. Typical our offense bogs down after a couple of first downs.

  • Zarbor

    He did not go to his check down. Geesh Ben. LeVeon was open for the first

  • Taylor Williams

    He had Bell for a check down. All he needed was 3 yards. Juju was open deep

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Ben is usually more nimble than this, but let’s go!

  • Av232

    It almost looked like he wasn’t expecting the chip from Bell? Ugly.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    acceptable. I only booked one but will take the loss for a Steelers win.

  • Dorian James

    Alright here we go D let’s do it

  • Chad Weiss

    Villeneuva hasn’t even been border line good this year

  • Taylor Williams

    Ben had Bell open though

  • Michael Mosgrove

    or he could have thrown it away. but ben is stupid lately.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn’t just wish he would hedge against it when we are in FG range….just throw it away please.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Nope not even mediocre

  • alevin16

    Ok not the greatest start but it could be something to build on (trying to stay +)

  • Chad Weiss

    Four missed tackles first play wow

  • Shannon Stephenson

    3 missed tackles of first run….uggghhh

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    a lot of missed tackles

  • Yeshaya

    2 missed tackles on the first play. Ugh

  • Chad Sanborn

    definitely playing like he is scared to touch people.

  • Zarbor

    Exactly. 3 points off the board. Situational football is not in his head

  • Dorian James

    Will need that attitude for the rest of the season

  • Yeshaya

    DO IT TUITT!!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Hold.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Mitchell jawing early. Beautiful. Let ’em know we are here to play today. No easy stuff.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Tuitt got tackled

  • SilverSteel

    Wassup BFH?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I would take the 3rd and 9

  • Chad Sanborn

    why not take the 3 and 9 ?

  • Yeshaya

    YEASHSHSSHHS!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    wooohoooo!!!!!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    well take it

  • Greg Payne

    because that

  • pdupuis

    Safety!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Booyah!!!

    Love the positive starts! Does that count as a turnover?!? Lol

  • Douglas Andrews

    Give me the layup!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Lol

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Safety trick! Does that count as a turnover?

  • Zarbor

    Loss 3 gained 2 could have been 5….

  • Chad Sanborn

    wow!!! didn’t see that coming

  • Shannon Stephenson

    how does that make a difference here

  • Greg Payne

    Spotting us 2? Okay. That’s fair.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Crowd noise may have contributed to the safety

  • Yeshaya

    Gosh that was a poor start for them. Good pass rush by us so far, hope it keeps up.

  • NYBurgh79

    WoW!

  • Dorian James

    This is on TV and I’m still at least 10 seconds behind

  • melblount

    I hate when we get up BIG early.

  • Darth Blount 47

    We need a quick ruling, Beav!

  • ayub

    I’m hoping next year we have the toughest schedule in the history of sports. We play better when the competition is good.

  • dany

    So I read people being excited about the next play before it happened, but I did not expect THAT

  • Douglas Andrews

    Lets go Offense gotta keep this momentum swing

  • Michael

    Whoop! There it is. Start singing!

  • Zarbor

    Thanks Brown

  • Michael

    The song mix.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    COME ON. ARE YOU FECKING SERIOUS?

  • Taylor Williams

    Crown noise isn’t always good

  • Yeshaya

  • Shannon Stephenson

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    how about that?

  • Douglas Andrews

    STUPID JUST PLAIN STUPID

  • alevin16

    Of course

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    what the hell was that?

  • Taylor Williams

    What the fock? Is this

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    C’mon.

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahaha laughable

  • Darth Blount 47

    YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • pdupuis

    Unfreaking believable.

  • Greg Payne

    Did AB lose that ball in the shadow line?

  • Yeshaya

    We’ll we’re still up 2-0. For now.

  • alevin16

    are we allergic to good fortune?

  • Yeshaya

    Maybe, or just a strong gust of wind changed its trajectory

  • dany

    So AB in the doghouse like Rogers?

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ab’s back was to the sun. that is inexcusable.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I honestly have no comment

  • Gautam Ramani

    Mistake to have 2 returners back

  • Paul RK

    typical….

  • Chad Sanborn

    I think they thought it was a regular punt and not a free kick.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    TJ!

  • Michael

    Can’t make this sheeiti up.

  • Yeshaya

    2 consecutive plays with good tackling, good streak

  • Jeff Papiernik

    I think AB got confused. He treated it like a regular punt where he cleared out of the way once he didn’t touch it, not realizing it was a live ball

  • Shannon Stephenson

    good hard tackle

  • Greg Payne

    Say Watt!

  • ryan72384

    Lol this team couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a sinking boat

  • Yeshaya

    Yeah I think that was it, he just let it be downed.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    special teams 1st to make losers list

  • alevin16

    Barry foster did the same thing with a kickoff years ago

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    time for one of Deebo’s pick 6’s

  • Douglas Andrews

    AB just let the ball go….dude that’s a live football

  • Darth Blount 47

    We have our eyes on Hunt. That’s good.

  • dany

    if so that’s unbelievable for an 8th year superstar

  • Chad Sanborn

    agreed .. didn’t know the rules there

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Good coverage Artie

  • Yeshaya

    Excellent pressure, excellent coverage

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Art Burns! Belee that!

  • Jason Vancil

    I remember Barry Foster doing a similar thing.

  • Michael

    LAME as usual, what else is new?

  • Douglas Andrews

    BURNS!!!

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Mental mistake

  • Michael Mosgrove

    mike hilton just got flattened.

  • Paul RK

    burns got there early. lucky it wasn’t called….

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    guess our pass defense is as advertised

  • Darth Blount 47

    Who had that pressure? TUITT!!!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    didnt see that

  • Jason Vancil

    One AB bails out another AB

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Steelers giving away points again

  • Douglas Andrews

    He got pancaked

  • Zarbor

    Hey Tuitt…be careful that’s our future QB….LOL

  • melblount

    Dumbest farking team on the planet.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    looked like he went for a cb blitz and he got thrown down like a rag doll by the right guard.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Looking like a monster!

  • alevin16

    that has to have been the fastest we have ever gotten momentum and lost it

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Royals just went up on the Bucco’s 3-2

  • Darth Blount 47

    3-2 Royals over Pirates.

  • Chad Weiss

    Tbd

  • melblount

    How does AB let that ball hit the ground?

  • Yeshaya

    Offense: B-
    Defense: A
    Special Teams: F

  • Paul RK

    LOL, but hopefully true !!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    I don’t think AB or JuJu know the rules on free kicks honestly

  • Paul RK

    offense C

  • Chad Sanborn

    Tuitt has been in the middle of the line wreaking havoc so far.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    what is Hilton a buck 80

  • melblount

    How can we continue to root for this crap?

  • Taylor Williams

    I still wish we had good safeties. What is Davis role on this team? Is he a box safety?

  • Jason Vancil

    Alright. Bottom of the 2nd 3-2, both teams with 1 Error.

  • dany

    Against Cameron Erving, he should!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Looked like his timing was spot on to me!

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’ll fault AB. He just looked at the football. Plus he’s the Vet PR He should know the rules

  • melblount

    Should be seeing a pick-six pretty soon.

  • Taylor Williams

    Well he’s a small guy

  • Jeff Papiernik

    We handed them 3, they handed us 2. Let’s start over.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Great minds think alike! Lol

  • dany

    Nobody is forcing you

    …are they??

  • Steeldog22

    Tomlin will now decide to go for two the rest of the game.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    about. i’ve got an inch on him. he’s 5’8″

  • Mister Wirez

    Not surprised… Just let it go.

  • melblount

    As long as we keep this a six FG game, we MIGHT have a chance.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    If AB does not know that is on coaching…Danny has to make sure they know

  • Chris92021

    Danny Smith, everyone. Dave Toub is light years better than Danny Smith.

  • Jason Vancil

    Cuz I don’t play Chess.

  • melblount

    DuPree on the field. WTF?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hey, that means we are scoring TD’s to have to make those calls, right? I’m cool with that. Hope he has a ton of decisions! Lol.

  • Taylor Williams

    How can anyone root for the Giants or browns? They’re both 0-5.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I mean, you could always be a Browns fan if you really wanted.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I thought he was a touch early too…have to see it again

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    precise

  • Chad Sanborn

    With Tuitt up the middle a lot so far I look for them to start rolling the QB out to get away from it. A smart DC would prepare for that with a spy

  • Mister Wirez

    Playing from behind again…

  • Zarbor

    Yup. Ben’s dumb decision cost us 3 points and AB dumb decision cost us another 3.

  • 太阳三联

    Every1 else does it to us

  • Douglas Andrews

    Too bad they can’t make up for those gaffs with a TD like they give away points

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Toub the Chiefs ST coach

  • Mister Wirez

    He thought it was a punt. Guarantee it.

  • Edjhjr

    Uh did brown know he had to try and catch it

  • Jay Clam

    How the hell did we not get the free kick?

  • alevin16

    I am guessing Haley abandons the run now 😀

  • Michael Mosgrove

    i’m light years ahead of danny smith.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Nice KR JuJu just take a knee

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Bell!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Nice run

  • WilliamSekinger

    Wow, this blog is cancerous today. Relax, it’s the first quarter at Arrowhead stadium. Some things haven’t gone right, but others have and in the meantime Alex Smith is getting hammered.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Tony Romo with the voice of reason…thank you

  • Jaybird

    Look at Pouncey 10 yrds down field!!!

  • Zarbor

    That’s a 6 point swing…good as a TD

  • Av232

    I like bringing Bryant around on the fake end around. Straight out of the KC playbook

  • Shannon Stephenson

    hehehehehe

  • Yeshaya

    Rogers with a decent block, that’s something

  • dany

    Ben stopping while running, with success. Hadn’t seen that much this year

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Good!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ratbirds lost today made my Sunday already

  • Greg Payne

    Drew the flag!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    no reason we should be behind at this point

  • Darth Blount 47

    That was a beautiful pass by Ben, really. Just the right amount of touch.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    sneaky AB

  • Yeshaya

    Argh so close…

  • Jaybird

    Uggghhhh

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Ben usually drops that in!

  • dany

    Deep to Jesse?? Ok..

  • Mister Wirez

    Its frustration watching this team underachieve every third week, plus dumb plays, does it every time.

  • Jason Vancil

    We need an upgrade at TE

  • Zarbor

    Wow Ben, clean pocket and can’t hit it. We have to hit those. Killer

  • Shannon Stephenson

    yep

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    E I E I O

  • Darth Blount 47

    Kick the football, Charlie Brown!!!!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    not this season. 4 of 21 on those throws

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Vance

  • Douglas Andrews

    Man Ben and those deep ball misses

  • Zarbor

    What a dumb call by Haley. A draw? That’s the best we can come up with

  • dany

    The penalty play was with Jesse. Both are wtf plays

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bigly.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    big play here

  • Jaybird

    Stay positive my brother

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Announcer’s right though, it’s not that far off.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    First Down!!!

  • alevin16

    Can you replace Haley please?

  • Yeshaya

    BELLLLLLLLL!!! Not even a draw, that was going for the first. Wow

  • Shannon Stephenson

    How we like that call?

  • Greg Payne

    You called it. Here’s a beer.

  • Zarbor

    That was all Bell…Good blocking

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell is an animal.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Yeah, I hate to say it but he’s looking like a different thrower than previously.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    LETS GO!!!!!

  • dany

    that’s having balls

  • Jaybird

    We are going to win this game. BOOK IT

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Bell has had great games against the Chiefs.

  • Darth Blount 47

    He was sooo close to being gone!!!

  • alevin16

    Abandoning the run in 3…2…1 ;D

  • Chad Sanborn

    When DeCastro pulls good things happen

  • Shannon Stephenson

    ONLY IF IT PAID OFF…IT DID

  • Darth Blount 47

    SSSSSHHHHH!

  • Yeshaya

    Even a stuffed screen is getting us 4-5 yards.

  • ryan72384

    Romo is such a refreshing change from Simms. He is actually really good.

  • Chad Sanborn

    ha! yep

  • Zarbor

    Another dumb Haley call to Bryant

  • Shannon Stephenson

    dont give Ben and Haley ideas

  • Yeshaya

    He got 7 yards, no idea how

  • Chad Sanborn

    He does seem to see everything clearly on the field with zero bias

  • Jason Vancil

    Approaching The No Score Zone. C’mon

  • Greg Payne

    7 yards dumb

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    7 yards

  • Darth Blount 47

    7 yard gains are rarely dumb

  • Jason Vancil

    He has found his calling

  • alevin16

    seriously?

  • Yeshaya

    Just thinking that…

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Not a bad play call, to be honest.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Real good!

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    I’m nervous we r getting close to endzone

  • ryan72384

    Omg Schuster and his holding calls

  • Shannon Stephenson

    JuJu…one good block…one holding call…someone should let him know he doesnt have to hole every other play

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, I thought it was fine.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    bad JUJU

  • Mister Wirez

    How glad is everyone that Phil Simms is in the CBS garage, lol?

    Romo is great and fresh air.

  • Yeshaya

    He’s like a less disciplined Hines

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Nice Bell run

  • NYBurgh79

    I like the Play Calling !

  • ryan72384

    Hell yes

  • pdupuis

    Don’t look now we’re in the red zone.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Tomlin said the blessing for Bell to eat today!

  • Greg Payne

    Hey JuJu! No Grab Grab!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Watch out for any edits to the Friday Question, Beav. I have a feeling a few Hunt people might be changing to Bell. Lol!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    when it works….me too

  • Yeshaya

    Ok Haley, don’t go 5 receiver. Please

  • Chad Sanborn

    Id like to see some of Connor here

  • dany

    ok the line is bullying this defense. They wont hold up till the 4th

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I know he’s not worth 15 million over 4 years or whatever, but I’m gonna be pretty damn sad if Bell leaves.

  • pdupuis

    About his fifth or sixth this year.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    wow we are gashing them

  • Chad Sanborn

    time to go 5 wide at the goal line

  • Jason Vancil

    Play Action off that Counter

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ill take simms over collinsworth ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

    also pitt needs to hire romo as an offensive coordinator. FCK TODD HALEY.

  • Av232

    Good God, that’s beautiful.

  • Jaybird

    Lol

  • alevin16

    Darn, we needed that TD. 3 5 wide plays coming /s

  • melblount

    DO NOT THROW THE BALL HERE!!!!

  • Greg Payne

    I’ll give him a $5 for this first Quarter.

  • Jason Vancil

    Or do that

  • Chris92021

    Why can’t we run this game plan every week??

  • melblount

    DO NOT THROW THE BALL HERE!!!

  • Abed Medawar

    Watson pls

  • alevin16

    Actually a fake handoff and a throw to the TE could be a good play

  • Mister Wirez

    It’s NO NO

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    OK so far Steeler smash mouth football I like

  • melblount

    IF we happen to score, DO NOT goo for 2!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Some here are so intent on complaing, they can’t see the beauty of this drive.

  • Jason Vancil

    TBH KC has a soft underbelly.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’d throw in a $20.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    i wont be. and it wasnt 15 over 4. he wanted 17 per.

  • Michael Cunningham

    Nix .. Bell … TD
    let’s go !

  • Yeshaya

    We’re only allowed to play well against good teams, I think it was a clause in the CBA

  • Shannon Stephenson

    ahhhhh

  • Darth Blount 47

    Do NOT go Pete Carroll on us here, Haley!

  • pdupuis

    Ben with only 6.5 yards per pass attempt this year. Wow!

  • Mister Wirez

    We got our free 2!

  • Chad Sanborn

    that would do it!

  • NYBurgh79

    Bring in the Fullback !

  • Darth Blount 47

    My fantasy team is ringing like a cash register with my boy, Bell!

  • Zarbor

    So because a play gains positive yards make it a good call? Hmmm Okay.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    d to sneak a pee in during quarterything happen?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Reports seemed to differ, but I was going with the low end. Regardless, don’t know what to tell you if you don’t at least enjoy/appreciate his game.

  • Mister Wirez

    Yeah no floaters from Ben. Run it!

  • dany

    6 point lead or 7 point lead, with the risk of it being 5 points only. Tomlin will go for 2

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    pay the man

  • Shannon Stephenson

    touchdown

  • Yeshaya

    Hallejujah.

  • Yeshaya

    Omg really? No fun league 🙁

  • NYBurgh79

    TOUCHDOWN!

  • Chad Sanborn

    why did they get a flag for that?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    wont go that far

  • Michael Mosgrove

    idiot.

  • Darth Blount 47

    I got 5 on it!

  • alevin16

    oh come on act like you have been there

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’m not sure if this is a hot take or a legit theory, but I think they may have fallen in love with the idea of being an “explosive offense” and can’t wrap their heads around grinding games out.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    How does that draw a flag?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    C’mon!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Emotions

  • Jason Vancil

    OH SH…. Gilbert

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Gilbert hurt

  • dany

    really? they had him haha

  • Greg Payne

    Why don’t we just say that the Steelers can’t celebrate …ever.

  • Chad Sanborn

    ugh welp.. the football gods giveth and taketh away… so far twice today

  • Michael Mosgrove

    using the goal post as a prop isnt allowed.

  • Zarbor

    Why not go for two Tomlin?

  • Mister Wirez

    That’s on the coaches

  • Michael Mosgrove

    using the goal post as a prop.

  • pdupuis

    Using the goal post as a prop. Good thing he didn’t break his hand.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    peanlty for beating up goal post

  • Shannon Stephenson

    thats what happens when you never get TD’s….do not know how to act when you get one.

  • Chad Weiss

    Romo is pretty good in the booth

  • capehouse

    No Fun League. They fooled us with allowing the celebrations

  • Zarbor

    Yup..just lame

  • melblount

    Why do you think they call it DOPE LBell?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    might be too violent of a demonstration.

  • Mister Wirez

    Why are the refs such tools?

  • Dee Evolution

    Patriot Nation would’ve been on suicide watch. LOL

  • Av232

    Plus it gets into the territory of “promoting violence”

  • Darth Blount 47

    Fingers crossed for Gilbert………….

  • Chad Sanborn

    thats 2 celebration penalties after a TD this season and once we got a delay of game on the extra point because we celebrated to long and didn’t line up in time. tsk tsk

  • melblount

    Only THIS team can do this many STOOPID things in this short of a period of time.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Seriously, what kind of anarchy do they think is going to happen if they allow people to celebrate tds?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’m pretty sure Bell’s getting the tatar tots and the nachos today!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    no they didnt. they allowed more group celebrations and relaxed the rules to allow all non violent or nonsexual. they are even allowed to use ball as a prop again. just not the goal post.

  • alevin16

    Now that we gave them 15 yards is a KO for a TD coming?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    players pounding the crap out of each other – but dont hurt the goal post

  • NYBurgh79

    No Fun League !

  • Jaybird

    Your fired up today Z man! Your extra angry today!

  • Taylor Williams

    We’re the only ones they flag.

  • Darth Blount 47

    You sound like you have a whole bin of Hater-Ade.

  • melblount

    Nice iso on JuJu doing nothing, then taking a holding penalty.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    now Trump is going to chime in Im sure

  • dany

    Because it’s fun?

  • Michael Cunningham

    this team I swear
    one step forward two steps back

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Guessing you weren’t referencing the Luniz, but there’s a great song called “I got 5 on it.”

  • Yeshaya

    About 8 yards worse than TB, could be worse

  • Mister Wirez

    I really hate the BS calls. It’s a padded pole… Big wup.

  • alevin16

    ok respectable

  • Jaybird

    And I think could’ve been better also

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I see Debo

  • SilverSteel

    Let’s give Haley a chance at redemption. They do look more focused. I laughed at your post though….so true

  • Shannon Stephenson

    and he gets a tackle on the fastest man on the field

  • Greg Payne

    Deebo – 1 play. 1 tackle.

  • WilliamSekinger

    JH didn’t miss the tackle!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Crikey! A Silverback sighting!

  • Yeshaya

    Gosh I like this hilton guy

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I get that it’s in the rules, but, really? There’s more violence than that on every single play.

  • Mister Wirez

    Knuckle heads & Pot heads…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Great play by Paris Hilton

  • pdupuis

    Hilton!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    whoa hilton a beast

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Hilton Hotels! Enjoy your stay!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Hilton!

  • Jeff Papiernik

    All aboard the Hilton fan club train!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Mike Hilton.

    Swaggin’.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    back em up

  • dany

    I freakin love that lil guy!

  • alevin16

    oh no 3rd and longer

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I hate 3rd and long

  • Greg Payne

    did that stadium just get a bit quieter?

  • Canadiana

    Great play by hilton, looks like a linebacker out there

  • NYBurgh79

    Hilton!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    our cryptonite

  • I4giveSteelers

    dont know about taking T watt off

  • Jaybird

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  • Taylor Williams

    I’m glad we drafted him

  • Darth Blount 47

    Crickets.

  • alevin16

    Hilton again!

  • Greg Payne

    that’s the way to turn him inside!!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    a wee bit

  • NYBurgh79

    Great job Defense !

  • Yeshaya

    Hilton again, not with the tackle but taking away his lane

  • dany

    Cameron Erving, we love you!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    k.c play us like their scared

  • Shannon Stephenson

    A FA pick up

  • alevin16

    Ha, we may be the bad team they are playing down to 😀

  • Zarbor

    Hilton is a God-sent….Dude is pretty good

  • ryan72384

    We have owned that guy since the day he was drafted

  • NYBurgh79

    Bring back Nix ! Like smash mouth football .

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I can hear the Terrible Towels flapping in the wind.

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahaha this made me laugh!

  • Jaybird

    The entire NFL has owned him!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    lol good point never thought about that

  • Greg Payne

    Did Wolf just say that Gilbert is down?

  • Zarbor

    Anyone thing Gay would have made those plays now? Nope. I’m just saying.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He is very confident in his own play and that is huge!

  • dany

    Was just thinking that, they look exactly like the team in the divisional round, which is completely different from what they were last year and this year. It’s the same thing you notice when the steelers play the pats, and ironically the chiefs embarrassed the pats

  • Darth Blount 47

    Thank you, Senquez Golson.

    We saw Hilton while scouting you.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Perfect

  • capehouse

    I mean really. Does anyone even think of Golson anymore?

  • Rick McClelland

    Okay. Finally getting fully engaged with the program. Was watching the game while I fixed my wife’s email. I was still able to get a few choice 4 letter words in during the game.

  • Abed Medawar

    Looks like our defense has their feelings hurt last week, good!

  • WilliamSekinger

    When you are undefeated, everyone you play is a bad team. Way too much pressure. I say they should just get a loss out of there system.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    who?

  • dany

    Imagine if he told the team “hey you should check out my former teammate”

  • nikki stephens

    Nice to see , J.h.1st attempt is solid tackle…no miss or bad angle

  • Mister Wirez

    Golson ever get picked up?

  • pdupuis

    Defense has not been the problem this season. New England looks beatable, Green Bay without Rodgers, get your act together offense.

  • ryan72384

    What the hell happened to Gilbert?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Thats Bryants best catch this season

  • Shannon Stephenson

    That is what it opens up…the run that is

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    XXXPLOSIVE!!!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    no

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    good play now run run run

  • Yeshaya

    Explosive play, very nice

  • Darth Blount 47

    How did Bryant get caught?!

  • Evan Eremita

    I do

  • SilverSteel

    PLeasure serving you

  • alevin16

    failed drug test ;D

  • nikki stephens

    ?????

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hubbard in for Gilbert.

    Crud.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    think he is still hurt

  • Rick McClelland

    Agreed. About time he gets his head out of his butt and starts to play.

  • ryan72384

    Shoestring or he was about to hit 5th gear

  • Zarbor

    Conner has to stop going out of bounds

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Justin?

  • I4giveSteelers

    what happened to Gilbert

  • alevin16

    Looked like he could have ran inside for more

  • Darth Blount 47

    Clipped on the ankle.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    He limped off after TD

  • capehouse

    Need better effort from Conner to go after that first down

  • Darth Blount 47

    Clipped on the ankle on Bell’s TD.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Terrible throw

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    What in the hell!?!

  • alevin16

    yup

  • Chad Sanborn

    #1….

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bad Ben

  • pittfan

    Oh no!not this again!!

  • pdupuis

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Zarbor

    That was not Ben’s fault. Looks like WR went the wrong way. Shameful

  • Chad Weiss

    Omg!!!!!!!!

  • ryan72384

    And it starts

  • Rick McClelland

    WTFing F? Holy Crap. Does he need glasses or contacts?

  • Yeshaya

    Argh not again. Miscommunication or just off target?

  • Paul RK

    eyeballing AB again…….

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    oh boy here we go should’ve kept running

  • Zarbor

    Not his fault this time

  • melblount

    Ben apologists…what say you?

  • WilliamSekinger

    Brown stopped his route, that wasn’t a bad throw.

  • Taylor Williams

    There were 2 guys there

  • dany

    what happened there?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hubbard comes in and immediately bad things happen. Coincidence??? I think not.

  • Chad Sanborn

    just a bad throw it looked like

  • Zarbor

    Nope terrible WR play

  • Shannon Stephenson

    not sure…

  • Taylor Williams

    That added weight slowed him down

  • capehouse

    C’mon AB

  • nikki stephens

    I thought the same thing, didn’t even see his head turned around

  • Chris92021

    Connor probably caused that one because he ran the route poorly, not freeing up AB. This offense isn’t good enough to overcome the rookie mistakes.

  • pdupuis

    AB run the wrong route?

  • alevin16

    any news on gilbert?

  • melblount

    Does Bad Ben even look where he throws it anymore? EVER?

  • Darth Blount 47

    I say keep drinking your Hater-Ade.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Time for Deebo’s pick 6 – what do you say?

  • Zarbor

    Looks like it

  • Pricopea

    Looks like it, he stopped when he should of kept going

  • melblount

    I won’t blame the D if they quit today.

  • Smitty 6788

    AB stopped on his route smh.. His 2nd blunder of this game

  • jconeoone C

    Angles

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Ill wait in anticipation

  • dany

    What’s with this bad ben thing? Is that what the cool kids are doing now?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Blount vs. Blount: Fight to the death.

  • Edjhjr

    Hey no pick six.

  • Chad Weiss

    These are bad situation for defense again

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    it did look that

  • Edjhjr

    Ben forcing to cry baby

  • Darth Blount 47

    That was NOT on Ben.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Haden almost got that!

  • Pricopea

    If he would of kept going he would of had great yac

  • WreckIess

    Not really Ben’s fault…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    WR just got a hand on it

  • Dee Evolution

    Now you know…

  • Darth Blount 47

    Are you a Bengals fan???

  • alevin16

    looked like a ton of KC holding on that one

  • alevin16

    haden?

  • ryan72384

    Regardless of whos fault it was this team is an f’ing turnover factory

  • Darth Blount 47

    No contest.

    One of us is ACTUALLY a Steelers fan.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Brown and Romo seem to be in agreement that it wasn’t Ben’s fault.

  • alevin16

    Haley calling the plays

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Good coverage….Smith doing a Ben

  • dany

    The speed of guys like Hill and Watt are not for tv

  • Yeshaya

    Still haven’t given up a first. That’s something nice

  • Dee Evolution

    Gotta say I’m pleased with the secondary.

  • Zarbor

    Bud Dupree looks lame. Dude isn’t sniffing the the QB. Someone needs to jack him up.

  • Edjhjr

    Don’t run the ball. It’s why you are winning

  • Mister Wirez

    That is exactly it. If he he doesn’t get the ball he cry’s. 2 nice Blunders today ABC.ry

  • Yeshaya

    Challenge that. Toe was on the white

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I think that was in the endzone

  • alevin16

    of course

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Crud!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lol…word of the day

  • I4giveSteelers

    i dont think so

  • Zarbor

    Who?

  • Greg Payne

    99 yards and 2 feet of drive coming.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I thought the line was the endzone

  • pittfan

    +100

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    OK why dnt they block that way the ball goes in the endzone

  • I4giveSteelers

    just run it for 99 yards is all

  • pdupuis

    Still not a single first down for KC.

  • RJ

    I swear they start more drives backed up to their own goal line than any other team.

  • dany

    Whoever is #31, the steelers should sign him!

  • Jaybird

    AB would have been wide open . AB stopped his route. Ben didn’t force anything. AB was wide open

  • Jeff McNeill

    Is anyone other than me think good things will happened for Pittsburgh?

  • Zarbor

    I am. Tired of this team playing pedestrian. Team out here ain’t playing and we monkeying around with feelings and anthem

  • Taylor Williams

    I like Hilton

  • Applebite

    Every time Hubbard goes into the game, it’s like a huge JINX on the entire offense…

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    So is our defense for real now? I believe so

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    I think k.c is anticipating run here

  • Rob S.

    anyone else notice we seem to be the only team without a punter that can make the ball bounce backwards at the one? and on the odd chance that it does bounce backwards it goes 10 yards

  • Zarbor

    Hold your horse brauuh.

  • Michael Cunningham

    We need Gilbert back in
    what is the story ?

  • WilliamSekinger

    125 yards after penalties

  • pittfan

    BOMB TO MARTAYY

  • Abed Medawar

    Bomb to MB here we go

  • Jaybird

    Give me a bomb!

  • alevin16

    not a great challenge but maybe

  • Jeff McNeill

    Bad challenge

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    No first downs for kc

  • FanInExile

    Chiefs showing how to stay in the game with special teams. Not a single first down and they’re within a single score. Can’t keep these guys down forever, but thrilled with the D so far.

  • pdupuis

    I at least like this challenge.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Marcus Gilbert hamstring aggraveted hamstring. return questionable

  • Kevin Schwartz

    They’ve been solid all year long (with the exception of OT vs. the Bears). If the secondary holds up, I think we are.

  • pittfan

    Arrggh

  • Av232

    Can they be for real for four quarters?

  • Jaybird

    I called it first! I’m taking all the credit if it happens! Lol

  • Taylor Williams

    Our pass rush is. Then haden makes it legit

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    looks close

  • Dee Evolution

    Refs on some bull junk today.

  • Zarbor

    Nothing stupid Ben

  • WilliamSekinger

    Didn’t win, but good challange

  • I4giveSteelers

    how on earth do you expect that to be reversed

  • Taylor Williams

    The D is fine. But the offense needs to score

  • Darth Blount 47

    Tomlin lost a challenge he likely should have won. Let’s be honest.

  • Yeshaya

    Oh Thanks God

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Big Pass!!!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Micky D’s please!!!

  • Jaybird

    Yes

  • Zarbor

    Finally Mickie D

  • Dee Evolution

    Vance McDonald sighting…

  • Darth Blount 47

    McDonald! Welcome to the show!

  • NYBurgh79

    The TE Caught one !

  • WilliamSekinger

    Mc! With the first catch of the season!

  • Abed Medawar

    Old McDonald had a catch eyya eyya oh!!

  • Applebite

    If his foot is on the line, it’s part of the endzone, bad call….

  • Yeshaya

    Yeah, no issue with that challenge, for the situation and the look of the replay

  • Chad Sanborn

    Finally caught one

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    McDonald’s first catch of season is big

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    see what happens when you work on Wednesdays ben

  • dany

    Well that’s a huge first catch

  • Yeshaya

    Gilbert’s questionable with hamstring. Nice while it lasted…

  • Darth Blount 47

    Sad Clown :’-(

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Bad play.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Geez. good play, but I really didn’t want him holding on to the ball that long in the end zone.

  • alevin16

    pf?

  • Chad Sanborn

    stop the gadget plays. just ruuuuun it… this game isn’t hard coach

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    that play took too long too develope

  • Darth Blount 47

    Defensive Holding?

  • WilliamSekinger

    Wow. Too cute, keep hitting them in the mouth!

  • Taylor Williams

    Hubbard is gonna catch hell . UGH!!

  • Darth Blount 47

    These refs are on some BS.

  • Applebite

    Haley going Hello Kitty with the offense…

  • Yeshaya

    JJSS!!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    JuJu!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    1st Down

  • NYBurgh79

    Rookie!

  • Jaybird

    Ju. Ju.

  • alevin16

    RUN RUN RUN please!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Good JUJU

  • Douglas Andrews

    Some good JUJU

  • Yeshaya

    Pick aside, Ben looks much more comfortable than I’ve seen the last few games

  • Zarbor

    Good move Ben. His passes look floaty but Ill take it

  • Darth Blount 47

    JuJuBee!

  • WilliamSekinger

    KC is going to have 0 offense at halftime

  • Dee Evolution

    This is a quality opponent.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Finally winning the TOP

  • Yeshaya

    I like that we’re still running down their throats, even with a backup right side of our O line

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I hope you are 100 percent correct

  • dany

    ron parker bouncing haha

  • Shannon Stephenson

    1st down

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Nice run by Bell!

  • Zarbor

    Bell is balling people…..

  • Douglas Andrews

    Bell running hard

  • Jaybird

    Man is Bell F ING good

  • NYBurgh79

    Great Job Bell!

  • Zarbor

    We need 7

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bell playing with alacrity

  • Shannon Stephenson

    today for sure

  • dany

    only way to explain it really

  • Darth Blount 47

    Romo: “See, they WANT them to pass, now.”

    Us: We’re gonna run.

    Maybe Haley is learning on the job?

  • dany

    all that and he still got it wow!

  • Jeff McNeill

    Fire Haley!

  • Greg Payne

    I was going to say “balls” but that word you used is good too.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Thats the offense I am looking for

  • Chad Sanborn

    how does AB get open like that

  • Yeshaya

    AB!!!! Love the effort by Bryant at the end, AB liked it too

  • Jaybird

    Hold on while I look that word up

  • Jason Vancil

    AB

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    we went from bad Ben to mad Ben here comes

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    AB!!!

  • DSG

    I’ve been super critical of ben, but so far he’s pkayed well.

  • Yeshaya

    Excellent word for it

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Chewing em up

  • Douglas Andrews

    I like that Mad Ben

  • Kevin Schwartz

    He looks like himself. I’m still convinced he’s been rusty after skipping training camp. So much of his game is about vision and feel, there’s no way you get back up to speed just doing drills on your own.

  • NYBurgh79

    WOW!

  • Zarbor

    LeVeon freaking Bell….Great play call Haley

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bring in watson

  • pdupuis

    What is this offense & where the f has it been?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Bell already got a hundo!!!

  • Jaybird

    And spitting em out

  • Dee Evolution

    Go for two if we score.

  • Yeshaya

    6.4 ypc by bell so far. wow

  • Greg Payne

    I heard the Steelers were supposed to have a good offense this year.

  • dany

    whatever Martavis was trying, that’s not a block

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell is like a fat kid with his cake.

  • nikki stephens

    Game has the feel of the playoffs. Impressed with McDonald’s blocking

  • Yeshaya

    Word on the street is 30 points a game….

  • Shannon Stephenson

    that must be some good cake

  • Douglas Andrews

    I get the pass but man just run it

  • alevin16

    RUN

  • NYBurgh79

    Great Job Ben ! throw the ball away

  • Zarbor

    Stop the presses. Ben threw the ball away Amazing

  • dany

    even if it takes 4 downs, you need a td

  • Jason Vancil

    Shot gun???

  • Darth Blount 47

    NUM NUM NUM!

  • capehouse

    Stop asking Ben to do anything. Just run Bell

  • Applebite

    Just run the damn ball, Haley.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    i was trying to call the long td pass but my phone froze but here comes td to McDonald

  • Dee Evolution

    It’s okay to use a fullback, Todd.

  • alevin16

    a sweep? you need 1 yard

  • Chad Sanborn

    Nix is available right?

  • ryan72384

    Should have run run run. First down pass was a waste unless you go playaction

  • Rob S.

    I just don’t understand shotgun from first-and-goal from the two

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I was gonna say, they’re doing everything right. It’s amazing!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Too bad i wanted the Nightmare

  • Darth Blount 47

    Throw it to Heath!

  • Jason Vancil

    I just dont get it.

  • ryan72384

    God what a waste of a drive

  • melblount

    What a miserable team.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Hold! C’mon!

  • Paul RK

    horrible play calling inside the 5 AGAIN

  • Zarbor

    Ben missed Brown

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    AB was wide open

  • capehouse

    Empty set at the goal line again.

  • melblount

    We must have cut Watson.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Gotta get 7. So crucial especially on the road.

  • Applebite

    ….
    Somebody smack Haley.

  • Douglas Andrews

    AB was open…hold down the gator aid coolers

  • melblount

    Our gaffes will come back to haunt us.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Missed red zone chance will cost us.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Refs are having a terrible game.

    There, I said it. Again.

  • alevin16

    woo hoo

  • Jason Vancil

    Patriots score there. Run Gillislee. Just so so stupid.

  • Chad Sanborn

    nor does anyone else

  • Mister Wirez

    Lol

  • melblount

    No sooner Romo gushes over Haley, Haley lays a fat farking egg.

  • Chris92021

    Wow, I guess all defenders are allowed to hold our players.

  • Jaybird

    🙂🤛

  • melblount

    STOOPID is as STOOPID does.

  • pdupuis

    Eve if KC runs out the clock they’ll have held the ball for 8+ minutes this half!

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    This team stops itself more than anyone else.

  • Smitty 6788

    Bs no pass interference… Refs keeping the game close

  • WreckIess

    I mean they weren’t going to run it on 3rd and goal from the 4 anyway.

  • Darth Blount 47

    EXACTLY.

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    It’s OK our defense is playing lights out and offense is running it on em

  • Pricopea

    That’s a hold on bell!

  • L Garou

    Classic Haley. 1st and goal on the one and … yep, 3 points.

  • Zarbor

    Haley did well until we got to the goal line. Last play two play call leave a lot to be desired. Want to know where our redzone problem starts….Somebody get Todd in here!

  • ryan72384

    Once again this is why Haley should be gooooooonnnnne. Gashing them with the run and you go shotgun on first and goal. Fire him yesterday!!

  • Don

    After the interception, Ben should’ve tossed the cooler.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, I’m okay with that. Obviously, a td would have been great, but that was one of the first drives this year where we were taking advantage of our weapons and our play calling wasn’t completely predictable.

  • melblount

    Steelers fans trying to transfer our STOOPIDITY on the refs is sad.

  • SilverSteel

    Yes he does. I’m liking his adjustments. Looks much sharper

  • Jaybird

    The Chiefs D has to be getting tired

  • Chad Weiss

    Defense let’s finish half strong!!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    On pace for 24 points- well below 30.

  • pittfan

    Nice hold on bell

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I hope so

  • capehouse

    Picked up a 3rd and 9. Why not?

  • Paul RK

    16 first downs to NONE and we are only up 12-3 ?????

  • WilliamSekinger

    12-3 at Arrowhead against a 5-0 Chiefs team almost halftime. Alex Smith is stupified by this defense yet again. It could be a bigger blowout, but you can’t seriously complain too much.

  • jconeoone C

    Haley tried to get cute. IDK why! Run. Run. Run. Wow…. Also holding on bell was too obvious to miss by the refs

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    i know defense is allowed to hold within the first 5 yrds of the lune of scrimmage but what about inside the 5 yrd line?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I like broadcaster Romo.

  • Chad Sanborn

    play calling better today until we get to the goal line. then we forget how to play.

  • Zarbor

    All that dominance and the score is waaaaaaaaay too close

  • Darth Blount 47

    Romo with the sick burn on the Jags! Lol.

  • DirtDawg1964

    It doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. Refs blew a call there. It’s fair to say it.

  • Applebite

    I want Romo calling plays for this offense.

  • I4giveSteelers

    watt blew that up

  • jconeoone C

    Only the Steelers…

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    defense is lookung real good

  • Smitty 6788

    Lmao

  • Av232

    I gotta see what he does in the playoffs before I believe…

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    🤔🤔🤗

  • Shannon Stephenson

    should be 15-0 but coulda shoulda woulda

  • Chad Sanborn

    good question. but i think that ends at the goal line

  • Darth Blount 47

    He gives ZERO Fuc**

  • melblount

    Nice athleticism there by DuPree jumping out of the way of that tackle. No dirt on his uni yet. Mom is again proud.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    where did everyone go? Taking a pee?

  • Zarbor

    Our defense matches up well with KC…..not so much with others. See NE

  • Chad Weiss

    Truer words have never been spoken

  • Taylor Williams

    I feel like I’ve seen this game before… In the playoffs

  • WreckIess

    That was in the middle of the field with DBs playing deep. A lot different than when all 11 players on defense are only guarding 14 yards of field. No space for that.

  • melblount

    DuPree is an absolute waste.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    😂😂

  • pdupuis

    We’re Steeler fans, you bet we can.

  • Jaybird

    What up Beav

  • Zarbor

    Lets hope its the same results

  • Smitty 6788

    Unfortunately you’re right.

  • Taylor Williams

    I see you have a extreme hate for Dupree

  • melblount

    I don’t cont a 9-point lead as domination.

  • pdupuis

    Look at time of possession stat.

  • jconeoone C

    Yea I caught that but wasn’t sure if I heard correct ..lol

  • Jeff McNeill

    I think this is a glass half empty bunch?

  • Greg Payne

    We’re playing the team with the best record in the NFL in their home stadium. Half time, if the score is 12-3, I’m good.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I’m looking at thr points – 12 is lame.

  • Mister Wirez

    Yeah, I’m not too impressed with Bud. He may be a tick better than Jarvis Jones..

  • Jaybird

    If KC can knock off the pats , we have a shot against the Chiefs in the playoffs

  • Smitty 6788

    You can never hold plus the ball was in the air should have been 1st and goall at 1

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ya think?! Lol.

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    Not allowing a first down to the #1 leading scoring team is

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Burghers

  • Yeshaya

    West shaken up

  • Mister Wirez

    I’d love a pick six for the black & gold..

  • Darth Blount 47

    So far, he has an extreme hate for anyone in Black & Gold.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    int coming up

  • Av232

    Mitchell just made a donation

  • melblount

    Oh crap, DuPree was on the ground that play, albeit UNDER a Chief. There goes the clean uni.

  • Taylor Williams

    Fine coming for him

  • Yeshaya

    Ok D, stay calm and play

  • Zarbor

    Gotta stop them for scoring even a field goal

  • Chad Sanborn

    not much to be half full about this season so far.

  • Applebite

    This game is totally different with a TD there. Haley needs to have a very long talk with his soul, to kill that drive like that.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Sack baby!!!

  • dany

    Mitchell helmet to helmet and Shazier almost did it before, wtf guys

  • jconeoone C

    Dupree just gets pushed up the arc all the time

  • Mister Wirez

    West got three orbiting tweeties..

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    VDub got like 3 sacks this year, no?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Thumper!

  • Jason Vancil

    We own Andy Reid coached teams, do we not?

  • Dee Evolution

    Accept the penalty! 10 sec runoff

  • alevin16

    shhh don’t jinx it

  • Jeff McNeill

    VW we gotta start calling him the bug!

  • dany

    man enjoy the game

  • Phil Brenneman II

    VW is def one of our top blitzers. Need to bring him more.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    We had problems with his Eagle teams

  • dany

    so much for him being too slow to start

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo pick 6. book it.

  • Applebite

    I call him the People’s Champ

  • Mister Wirez

    It ain’t over… Remember last week’s 2nd half.

  • Yeshaya

    Int grounding. I love the pressure we’re getting here

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Touché

  • Shannon Stephenson

    intentional grounding

  • Yeshaya

    Prediction noted. An 100 yarder or just a regular pick 6?

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    he layed him down though

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Helmet hit Dupree…why he go ahead first standing straight up…dang

  • Taylor Williams

    Dupree pulling a Mitchell with the helmet to helmet

  • Yeshaya

    Cancelled by roughing the passer. Whatever

  • dany

    boy Alex what are you doing man?

  • Zarbor

    Bud Dupree can’t be that dumb

  • alevin16

    Dupree, come on

  • Applebite

    A load of poo…

  • Greg Payne

    THAT was roughing the passer? I’ve seen babies rocked with less tenderness.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    6 points 1-100 yards

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    VDUB!!!

  • Yeshaya

    That’s 2 sacks this drive I think

  • Dee Evolution

    Negative yards!

  • dany

    Reminder: Never leave babies near Greg

  • Darth Blount 47

    Thumper x 2!!!

  • Mister Wirez

    What was Dupree doing on the QB hit?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Kinda looked like Dupree was caught between trying to tackle him and bat down the pass.

  • jconeoone C

    Why is Dupree playing….

  • melblount

    Well, at least DuPree got in the Box Score, albeit with a DUMB penalty, but his Mom must still be proud.

    Clear, open shot at Smith’s torso and he JUMPS at his head. You can’t make this stuff up.

  • Yeshaya

    A+ job by the defense. See everybody in the 2nd half thread

  • WilliamSekinger

    So, tell me why exactly some want Alex Smith to QB the Steelers after Ben?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    nope

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Just to quote myself

    “VW is def one of our top blitzers. Need to bring him more.”

  • Greg Payne

    I’m buying. Everybody to the kitchen!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Comment of the Day!
    Kudos!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Smith has to have time to pass in order to get a pick

  • Zarbor

    You can’t put your helmet into the QB helmet. Obvious that Stevie Wonder could see that people

  • pittfan

    That was dumb

  • ryan72384

    Come on Tomlin calm down you have a whole half of football left. Use some of that energy to rip your offensive coordinator a new one for his playcalling inside the 5

  • melblount

    If you have not taken the opportunity to watch DuPree yet this year, ISO on him for a spell an the 2nd Half. He’s bordering on genetic garbage.

  • Buccos9

    First and goal at the two yard line.Instead of handing off, it looked like the Steelers wanted to try that stupid fade pass to the corner that almost never works. Haley, take that damn play out of your playbook. Hand off to Bell or Watson and hammer it in. I pine for the days when Ben could throw to Ward or Miller in the middle of the end zone.

  • Darth Blount 47

    They have severe alcoholism that runs in their families?

  • Chad Sanborn

    stout first half appearance. but we still have 2 more quarters to go.

  • Applebite

    People definitely need more faith in VW..

  • Jaybird

    Shots are on me Greg. What’s your poison

  • capehouse

    Still gotta respect it if you show it. That’s worth something.

  • Mister Wirez

    We all saw how the 2nd half went last week…

  • ryan72384

    I’ve watched him alot this year because I expected big things from him and your right. He has done nothing

  • Kevin Schwartz

    He’s better than anyone else we’re gonna have short-term post-Ben. If you think we have a chance to contend with an average QB because of the rest of our roster, he’s not a bad stop-gap.

  • Jaybird

    Chiefs with negative yards?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    He has been ok…he does have a few sacks this year

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Is this our defense? Man I tell ya, they are spinning out there!!!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Salt, Patron, Lime, repeat!

  • Chad Sanborn

    did they get a 1st down?

  • alevin16

    yes

  • pittfan

    Bounce back week!!!
    HEre we go Steelers here we go!!

  • Jaybird

    Patron – nice ! You got class Darth

  • ryan72384

    A TD there and we would have really been in control. So frustrating

  • Mister Wirez

    dim bulb..

  • Zarbor

    Not sure what Tomlin is doing but this team hasn’t accomplished anything. Your offense scored 10 points. The game is well within reach. Whole half of football left. You won the first half…whoooptie-doo.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    everyone should take a shot when where in the red zone a pass

  • Chad Sanborn

    call me cynical, but we had a small lead at the half last week too.

  • Jaybird

    Ever have Three generations ( English spelling) tequila?

  • Smitty 6788

    Good call

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Pretty much.

  • Chad Sanborn

    yep we were ahead at the half last week too.

  • Jaybird

    Stop bragging Phil! Lol

  • Zarbor

    Lets see what KC does for half-time adjustments. I fully expect them to get Kelce going. We better not think we have done anything and get that offense scoring MORE points

  • Smitty 6788

    Lol being dumb

  • gentry_gee

    Prediction: KC adjusts and will win.

  • Greg Payne

    Bourbon. Preferably in a glass, but I won’t stand on tradition.

  • melblount

    That’s no cynicism, that being real.

  • melblount

    Haley must think we cut Watson.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Rum, scotch, Vodka on the rocks

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    second half thread is up

  • Smitty 6788

    Sad part is Dupree jumped in the air to hit him.

  • Mister Wirez

    When was the last time the whole team clicked in all 3 phases?

    When was the last time we just dominated a good team for a full 60 minutes? It’s like the bolts need a snugging up.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Lol

  • Shannon Stephenson

    thanx

  • SilverSteel

    Sup SPB. Better week

  • melblount

    1st Round pick syndrome combined with brain dead HC disease..

  • Chad Sanborn

    Tomlin has a bad track record when trying to play with a lead.

  • SilverSteel

    What is your definition of a “tick”?

  • Smitty 6788

    The coach is not allowed to show emotionl for his defense?? Really smh

  • WilliamSekinger

    Kelce is on lockdown. He’s not doing much for the rest of the game.

  • SilverSteel

    Lol 🤑

  • Darth Blount 47

    I have. But it was in a margarita so I didn’t get a fair taste.

  • melblount

    We’ve scored 10 points on offense.

    Read it slowly and TRY to understand it.

  • Joe

    Been missing open receivers all year. Same old from this QB.
