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

While the Steelers have certainly blown some opportunities–losing the ball on a free kick, failing to get into the end zone from first and goal at the two–they probably feel good about leading the Chiefs 12-3 entering the second half.

The last undefeated team just barely got its only first down of the game after the two-minute warning and subsequently took two sacks to end the second quarter. Meanwhile, the run game has spent most of the day looking dominant, and Ben Roethlisberger has made some nice throws as well, throwing an interception that was on Antonio Brown for stopping a slant route.

Kareem Hunt picked up five yards on his first play of the second half. He was able to get four in front of some good blocking to set up an early third and one. Alex Smith kept it on the sneak up the middle, ruled short. From the 34 and a half, Andy Reid elected to punt. Brown returned the ball to about the 19. A flag was thrown on the play on the Chiefs for illegal formation, resulting in a rekick. The rekick didn’t do any good, forcing Brown to back up to about the 17 to call for a fair catch on the backpedal.

Le’Veon Bell’s first carry of the half went for 15 off the left side, making a tackler or two miss. He was lucky to get back to the line of scrimmage. Ben Roethlisberger dropped back and looked for Martavis Bryant, incomplete, on an intermediate pass that was high and well-defended. Now third and 10 from the 32, Roethlisberger threw to Bell, but he failed to pick up the first down, stopped just shy after trying to get too cute when he should have just turned upfield. After a delay of game in advance of the punt, Jordan Berry booted the ball down to the 25 for just a 36-yard punt. Berry has continued to be maddeningly inconsistent, usually good for at least one JV punt per game.

From the 25, Smith found Tyreek Hill in the flat five yards out with a run for another five. Vince Williams chased Hunt down laterally for no gain on the following play. With Stephon Tuitt pressuring Smith, the quarterback got the pass out to Travis Kelce, who dropped it, Ryan Shazier there as well. On third and 10, Artie Burns prevented Hill from catching the ball for 15 yards, his second pass defensed. Forcing the punt, Brown muffed the punt after signaling for a fair catch near the 10 at the end of a 54-yard punt.

From the 11, Bell got the ball and showed his typical patience, leaning forward for close to five. Roethlisberger had time to find Brown down the field on the next play for a 30-yard hook-up, running a slant-and-go. That was his fifth catch of the day for 77 yards.

From the 45, this time it was JuJu Smith-Schuster for his third catch, bouncing off a defender for 12. It looked like the Chiefs had Bell dead to rights in the backfield, but he got free for 25 instead. The only problem is that they got B.J. Finney for a hold at the line.

Now first and 18, however, he was tripped up for a loss on the pitch. Going off play action, Roethlisberger rocketed one down the field for 19, but Brown came back two yards, instead making it third and two because of that. From the 35, Roethlisberger couldn’t float the ball over the linebacker to Bell in coverage. The punt went for a touchback, but because of a hold drawn by Darrius Heyward-Bey, the Chiefs were backed down to their own 10.

Hill wasn’t able to get past Shazier on first down, but he was able to get 10 yards. Travis Kelce finally got his first catch, but Mike Hilton completely blew it up on a screen for a loss of two. Unfortunately, Hunt was able to get by Williams in open space with a stiff-arm for first-down yardage.

From the 37, backups in the game on the line and at edge rusher, Smith was forced to scramble for a short gain. With Hilton on the blitz, Smith got off a quick pass and Sean Davis crushed DeAnthony Thomas for no gain. On third and long, Smith ducked under a Mike Mitchell blitz and hit Hunt into the open field for a big gain, plus roughing the passer, setting the Chiefs up in the red zone to open the fourth quarter.

At the 12 all of a sudden, Hunt powered his way for four on first down. Hunt taking the carry from motion picked up another three yards to set up a third and three. Williams stayed down on the field initially, but was getting up heading into the injury commercial break.

With Tyler Matakevich checking in for Williams on the big third-down play, Smith handed off to Hunt, who was held short. It initially looked like he would lose yardage, but he lunged for a gain of one. On fourth and two, the defense pressured Smith, but he got the pass off, nearly caught, and then nearly intercepted by Sean Davis.

The Steelers took over on downs at the four-yard line, preserving a two-possession lead. On first down, Bell got the carry for just a yard. On second down, following his fullback, he found space for extra yardage, a first down and more. With Finney and Nix pulling right, Bell ripped off a 27-yard run up the right side.

At the 44, they offense stayed on the ground, getting Bell four more. He was lucky to get back to the line of scrimmage, however, on the next play. On third and six, Roethlisberger in an empty set could not complete to Brown, forcing the Steelers to punt. Berry kicked 36 yards, the punt fielded by Hill and returned for two yards.

After two plays for a first down, a three-yard pass and a forced throwaway set up a third and seven, as William remained out for now. Smith scrambled for a first down, after the Steelers left their right side open, but Demetrius Harris, their fourth receiver playing as their number two, held. The spot foul made it third and six. From the 33, Smith was able to find Kelce for 10 with Davis in coverage, breaking to the outside.

With starters checking back in, Tuitt did a nice job of robbing Smith of a running lane, forcing him to throw the ball away again. But he bought time with his legs on the following play and suddenly broke the game open with DeAnthony Thomas getting open past Burns and getting out of a Hilton tackle attempt for the long touchdown, the Steelers’ first passing play of 40 or more yards allowed on the season. It’s suddenly a two-point game.

After a touchback, the Steelers turned to Bell to try to silence the crowd, suddenly with something to cheer for, and he picked up six yards on first down as the clock ticked below six minutes remaining. On second and four, Roethlisberger hit Brown for an easy completion to Brown of 10 yards, putting him over 100 for the day.

From the 41, Bell struggled to find space, ultimately turning north to pick up a yard. Backing his way forward for another six or seven yards, Bell put the Steelers into a manageable third and two, with the option to run or throw. Below four minutes to go, Bell checked out wide, Roethlisberger forcing the ball to Brown, off the facemask of Phillip Gaines. Off the tip, Brown snagged the ball out of the air, avoiding the safety in coverage, and ran the rest of the way for the touchdown for 51 yards, his second score of the season.

That was a turnover-worthy throw that turned into a touchdown and regained a two-possession lead with under three and a half minutes to play.

Off the short kick to the four, a 29-yard return put the Chiefs at the 33 to start the drive. Smith immediately found Hunt open down the field for a big gain to the 38. Then he hit Kelce between zones to the 15. Miscommunication with his third receiver resulted in a quick incomplete pass. Facing the blitz, Smith was forced to release the ball wildly for what should have been a touchdown, Artie Burns blowing coverage. Hilton on the pressure. On third down, Smith’s pass sailed incomplete, forcing the Chiefs to attempt a field goal, down by nine points. With 2:17 to play, the Chiefs cut the lead to six.

Taking over at the 24, the blocking was unable to get Bell out to the edge off failed blocks, resulting in a loss of two yards, the Chiefs taking a timeout 10 seconds in advance of the two-minute warning. On second and 12, with one receiver on the field, they stayed on the ground with Bell for about five yards, setting up a third and long, the Chiefs using their second timeout at 2:05. On third down, Roethlisberger’s pass looking for Bell was broken up on a nice play by the defensive back, just after the two-minute warning.

Berry outkicked his coverage and helped to allow Hill to return the punt out to the Chiefs’ 44-yard line. He took two hard hits by Nix and Matakevich out of bounds, taking a seat on the bench.

With 1:42 and two timeouts, the Chiefs got to work from the 44. Under pressure, Smith threw wildly and low short on first down for an incompletion. Off a three-man rush, Smith hit Robinson for 16 to the 40. Tuitt batted Smith’s next ball at the line at the 1:11 mark. On second down, from the 40, Smith’s pass was high for an open Robinson, Shazier vacating his spot. Harrison got a hit on Smith.

On third and 10, Harrison beat Eric Fisher for the sack, Tuitt joining him, forcing the Chiefs to call a timeoute with 58 seconds left for a fourth an 18. On the desperation play, Smith’s pass was not near a Chief, Shazier trying to go up and intercept it, ultimately falling incomplete. After being blown out last week, the Steelers went into Kansas City and knocked out the top offense in the league, holding them to 13 points and giving them their first loss.

    So, to everyone who THINKS that was a GREAT 1st Half, what do you plan to say if/when we are only UP 2 after a KC TD?

    Start working on that, you gotta know that’s coming.

  • Chris92021

    1. Continue to run the ball. Switch out Bell for Watson or Connor if necessary.
    2. Keep up the good tackling. Haven’t seen too many egregious missed tackles yet.
    3. Leave Danny “Swinging Gate Two Times” Smith in KC after the game. He is useless to us.

    Very pleased with the result thus far but we still have 30 more minutes to go. Keep pounding on them. Our front 7 has owned their offensive line. Keep it going.

  • Crashcrash777

    Let’s keep it going boys!

  • Av232

    I’d say that’s the risk of a ball control offense that has long, possession drives. You don’t score a ton of points.

  • Romel Roze

    That was a masterful drive that ended in stupidity just before the half.

    1st and goal from the 3 and they kick a FG because of idiotic play calling. Run Bell downhill and get the TD. If you want to give Bell a break bring in Watson and pound it. If you want to throw it bring in Watson and run a play action fake.

    What they called was stupidity at its best an the prime reason they kick FGs instead of scoring TDs.

    12 to 3 instead of 16 to 3 at the half. Haley is an idiot!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Keep feeding Bell. He may get 2 hundo!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Evacuated my bowels and ordered another refreshment. Good to go for the 2nd half.

  • Jason

    Alex Smith 5/8 for 23

    that’s on track for the amount of passing yards needed to beat the Steelers, 101 for Glennon, 95 for Bortles

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    C’mon!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    This is a better match up for the Steeler then the Bears or Jags. We are designed to take down spread offenses which KC is so when we go against power teams our team wears down late.

  • Dorian James

    Cut it out! you’re scaring the women………….. who am I kidding you’re scaring me too

  • Crashcrash777

    We think that was a great first half because our defense held the opponent to 3 points and we hope we can continue that success in the next half.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    need more points.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    sad but funny

  • Mister Wirez

    We leave WAY too many touchdowns on the field.

    First and goal?
    Feild goal!
    YAY…

  • DirtDawg1964

    The great news? The defence has been lights out. Only 6 net yards. And holding KC to just 3 after the free kick was incredible. And the running game is humming and thenoffence overall is good.

    But man, again failing to score a TD from the red zone. First and goal at the 2? And botching that free kick? Sigh. And only up 12 to 3. That’s not good enough out of that half.

    It’s not often a team can keep up this kind of pace. If I was KC I’d be happy right now. Still well in it.

    But we are in a better place than 90% of Steeler fans thought we’d be. So i will take that.

  • Zarbor

    We should be up by 14. Running game looks good. My bad, LeVeon looks good. Red Zone still a problem. Play calling still an issue but its better until redzone.

    KC has to feel good only being down single digits. We are going to have to play even better in the second half. Not sure that’s possible on defense outside of now getting turnovers

  • Taylor Williams

    Off topic. The refs cheating for the Patriots again. Jets had an obvious touchdown. Probably the reason I only watch Steeler games

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    No where to go, I already went.

  • Romel Roze

    That was a great defensive performance and a dominant performance by the running game. But Too many miscues and idiotic play calling when the team need to score TDs a d not kick FGs.

  • melblount

    IF Bad Ben doesn’t take center stage in the 2nd Half, we have a legit shot at pulling this off.

    Think of “IF” here being as being as big as a skyscraper.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    😉👍

  • Taylor Williams

    If the offense scored, then we wouldn’t have to worry about the defense too much.

  • alevin16

    they are not cheating they are following the Goodell Rules for handling the Patriots

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    key to winning this game is don’t let them score on the first drive and mix some short passing plays in with mostly run plays just to keep their defense honest and thinking I would do a short pass first down

  • melblount

    That Jets TD reversal was borderline criminal.

  • Michael

    I been trying to post this VERY SAME THING past one hour, but my cell phone was off line. Thank you.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    good call

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Time to get serious people. kickoff

  • Michael

    Sky is blue; what else is new?

  • Michael

    who gets ball 2nd half?

  • Romel Roze

    Haley need to get his head out of his butt. Can’t believe Tomlin let him to call that BS just before the half

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    They do.

  • DirtDawg1964

    It was a great half.

    And “ifs” are for losers. KC may come back. They may not. If they do, we will all lament the FG instead of a TD and the bungled free kick. But that won’t mean they didn’t play great defence or run the ball at will.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Yup. Don’t kick it to that dude.

  • Taylor Williams

    Should’ve saw that Jets v Pat’s game.

  • alevin16

    When do we get our turnover? It is overdue

  • gentry_gee

    Now KC will score and people blame the Defense for doing nothing.

  • Jason

    this is standard Steelers statistically dominating but only 1 play from a whole new game, just like the Ravens game

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    big defensive stand needed here

  • Steve Johnson

    Oh No! Let me look pretty and Stutter Step first. SMH!

  • Taylor Williams

    So our offense could punt the ball again?

  • melblount

    It’ll only take a couple of DOPEY plays/moves to lose this game. Chock one up for LBell, who did the only thing he could have done to NOT get that 1st Down.

  • Applebite

    Sometimes, you just wish that Berry had a better leg, where it didn’t seem as if he was kicking a brick down field…

  • WilliamSekinger

    OMG, Jets were robbed…

    And never forget how they got cute inside the 5 and didn’t punch it in.

    Yes but at no point in this game do you kick it to that dude. NONE

  • Yeshaya

    That was the most certain 4 yard loss I’ve ever seen. Wow

  • Darth Blount 47

    AHAHAHAHAHAH the refs are comical!

  • Joseph Shaw

    That is so unfortunate. What a run.

  • Applebite

    Damn it…..he’ll make up for that, watch.

  • dany

    how the hell bell, they had him!

  • Yeshaya

    Eh, I’m not gonna keep laughing it its pulling 25 yard runs off the board

  • Zarbor

    What a dumb play call

  • alevin16

    and the drive dies?

  • Dorian James

    WOW,

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m laughing outside and crying inside.

  • Smitty 6788

    Hate that pitch out of the gun

  • Jay Clam

    AB!

  • Yeshaya

    AB I love you

  • Shannon Stephenson

    why back wards man

  • Jay Clam

    That should be a first

  • Yeshaya

    Give it to watson for the conversion

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Ben getting his rhythm

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben is throwing darts.

  • ryan72384

    Damnit guys fall forward

  • Jay Clam

    Haley, you suck dude

  • Zarbor

    Big Ben….strikes again

  • Applebite

    Let’s go Bell…

  • Yeshaya

    Argh again.

  • Jay Clam

    And a punt

  • Shannon Stephenson

    once again we had a first down but Brown runs forward

  • dany

    What’s worse, play action on 2nd and 20 or falling for it?

  • WreckIess

    Juju WTFO in the middle of the field.

  • ryan72384

    Seriously come on. Can this damn offense just give the D some help!?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Man, conservative again? Alright.

  • Jay Clam

    LOLLL that was dumb as hell

  • Joseph Shaw

    Ben still looks off.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    If there’s ever been a more underachieving offense in the NFL, I don’t remember it.

  • Yeshaya

    Our offense should have scored more than 10 points with this. A 9 point lead isn’t enough

  • Jay Clam

    Sweet punt formation, Danny.

  • alevin16

    living in their fears

  • dany

    at this point I’d go for it

  • Jay Clam

    Great bounce. Ugh

  • Shannon Stephenson

    it upsets especially since we should of had first down on last two drives.

  • Dee Evolution

    Just go for it!

  • alevin16

    yup knew that was coming

  • Nathanael Dory

    JuJu was open

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I’d go for it.

    That drive is on AB though. He caught the first down and ran backwards. Really need better awareness than that in a game this close. Every little thing counts.

  • Yeshaya

    His decisions are better today, but the touch is a bit off. Just not dropping the ball into the right spot.

  • WreckIess

    Not Haley’s fault. Brown went backwards after he had the first down and Ben missed the wide open receiver.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    KC bailed us out on another terrible ST execution play

  • Darth Blount 47

    Say what you will, but we came to play today. Will it be enough? We’ll see.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    DEFENSE!!

  • ryan72384

    No doubt. Absolute killer. Bell the drive before should have had the first as well.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Love the effort from DHB there. Dude reminds me of Ward a bit.

  • Zarbor

    He was protecting himself…..No issue with AB on that play.

  • Dorian James

    Even if it’s not I’m pleased with the effort so far

  • Taylor Williams

    Giants offense this year?

  • Smitty 6788

    True

  • Darth Blount 47

    He has a ‘Tude, that’s for sure!

  • C2K

    For all the Tomlin nuthuggers. Defend your boy on a 4th an 2 punt on the 35. Watch them lose now.

  • melblount

    We’ve scored 10 offensive points.

    Read it slowly and try to understand it.

    Also, please explain how THAT is domination.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    You can protect yourself and not run backwards. The issue is he cost us the first.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    against a great KC defense

  • NinjaMountie

    Still can’t score points. This is how we lose games we should win

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    what you will

  • Jay Clam

    They have a good defense, let’s give them credit.

  • Chad Weiss

    One touchdown in at least last seven qtrs but could be longer

  • Smitty 6788

    I agree

  • CommonSenseGoneWild

    D needs to get to. Been awhile

  • Taylor Williams

    I like the defensive effort

  • Steve

    On the road against 5 and 0 chiefs D

  • Mister Wirez

    Ugh. Watching these games is so frustrating.. How does Ben miss a floater?

    KC hadn’t done crap all day. Why not put Nix and Watson in there and grind out a first down?

  • Dorian James

    Most definitely

  • gentry_gee

    3rd and 2 and you don’t run it? You deserve to lose.

  • Zarbor

    Yes but that’s not our issue. Our issue is bad play calling in redzone.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    See how Hill got a first down….learn Steelers

  • alevin16

    See AB that is how you get the first

  • Steve Johnson

    How many more Offensive Drives do we have to watch end (3rd & 2 / 3rd & 1) only to see Todd Haley allow #7 to drop back and throw the DAMM BALL!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Deebo I think has played a bit more than I thought he would.

  • Yeshaya

    Hilton HOF

  • Jay Clam

    Maybe the play calls are right but the execution is bad. Bell was NOT Ben’s first look on that 3rd and 2 play. They forced him to check down.

  • Mister Wirez

    Yep. Hang around hang around. Boom, KC gets hot… We lose

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Hilton Hotels! Enjoy!

  • NYBurgh79

    Hilton!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I guess so

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    come on d don’t let up keep your foot on their throats

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    GOAT

  • Av232

    They got Chick on the other side right now, too

  • Darth Blount 47

    Chocolate on your pillows!

  • Evan Eremita

    That drive is on Haley calling another pass on third and short when our running back is having a breakout game

  • Jay Clam

    Damn VWill got stuffed lol

  • Zarbor

    VC got owned

  • alevin16

    oh no long yardage

  • gentry_gee

    And there it is.

  • Yeshaya

    Ugh. Vince couldn’t wrap up

  • dany

    how the hell Hilton!

  • gentry_gee

    Hang on folks.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Have to make the tackle

  • Darth Blount 47

    Thumper just got thumped.

  • Jay Clam

    Nice coverage there

  • NinjaMountie

    Gotta stop them

  • Applebite

    Hmmmm….

  • pittfan

    HE saw Deebo coming

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hargrave eats up a double-team often now. Casey Hampton with a rush?

  • Jay Clam

    Nice play Davis

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Nice hit, Davis!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Damn Davis…play nice with other kids

  • Yeshaya

    I know I’m being obsessed over hilton, but he timed that snap absolutely perfectly. 0.1 seconds from an offsides

  • Steve

    Smith missed a wide open WR. He must suck too

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    3rd and long. hate it

  • Nunya

    I didn’t like the scared 4th down call on offense. That’s kind of call always comes back to haunt you…

  • Darth Blount 47

    That’s a defensive play to keep in the playbook.

  • Jay Clam

    You’ve gotta be kidding me

  • Jay Clam

    Face mask

  • ryan72384

    Lol

  • Yeshaya

    Block in the back?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    just wow

  • NinjaMountie

    Omg

  • Jay Clam

    All the mo on their side

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Fudge.

  • RJ

    Let them right back in it. Unbelievable.

  • Jay Clam

    How do you miss that sack? Like 3 guys.

  • Zarbor

    Mitchell…what a clown

  • Darth Blount 47

    Mitchell killed us on that. Son of a b…………

  • NinjaMountie

    This is how we’ve been losing this year

  • Jamaal Hood

    IM done with Mitchell

  • ryan72384

    Mike Mitchell is such a joke.

  • Chad Sanborn

    welp..

  • alevin16

    No flag on 14?

  • Nunya

    All this started with scared playcalling on 4th down. Anyone else see this one coming?

  • Yeshaya

    That 100% on mike mitchell. Had a free lane on him and couldn’t sack. Ball on the 12. D***

  • Jay Clam

    I’ve never liked Mitchell.

  • Darth Blount 47

    That was terriibblllllllllllllllllllll

  • dany

    that was just unlucky!

  • alevin16

    bet they run 3 times

  • melblount

    OK posters…so you think I’m an idiot, eh?

    Game’s now on the line, as FULLY expected. And we’re back to our BAD basics.

  • NinjaMountie

    Bonehead play no 3 this game

  • Applebite

    KC fans finally back in it…put your seat belts on…

  • Taylor Williams

    But you should’ve known this was gonna happen. We should’ve been up 14 points.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Mitchell needs cut. He dove at the back of Alex Smith legs. That is NOT OK!

  • gentry_gee

    Let it go down for the record that the offense has scored a whopping 10 points.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Been awful quiet this quarter though, huh?!

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Mitchell is a liability in the run and pass…just a horrible safety

  • Sonny Saks

    Block in the back??

  • RJ

    Offense making bad penalties and stalling drive and special teams failing to turn field position. The defense can only do so much.

  • Chris92021

    Yep, the dam just busted. KC is now going to look like KC again. Mitchell is useless. I would rather see Wilcox in there instead of Mitchell, who is always a step slow and good for stupid penalties.

  • melblount

    Nice WHIFF Mike!

  • Nathanael Dory

    How did he miss that sack?!

  • Steve Johnson

    Mike Mitchell is an Idiot! That was a Dirty Play

  • Zarbor

    All it takes is one idiot…Mitchell, to give them life.

  • Joseph Shaw

    I saw that too.

  • Michael Cunningham

    This O is losing us games
    can’t score
    can’t keep KC bottled up forever

  • Phil Brenneman II

    He is so vocal though! Guys love him………

  • Darth Blount 47

    No clue. Horrific.

  • CommonSenseGoneWild

    Mitchel needs to be replaced

  • Taylor Williams

    Can’t blame the D here though. We’ve shut them out most of the game

  • Joseph Shaw

    Third downs. SMH.

  • Chad Weiss

    Facemasks Smith as he went by him th3n came back and hit him low.smh

  • ryan72384

    It’s always the same. The defense will not dominate a team for an entire game. The offense should have put this game away in the third quarter. No matter what happens this is all on the inept offense.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Our defense plays great for 3 quarters

  • gentry_gee

    But the D will get the blame as they complete their collapse here.

  • Taylor Williams

    Frustrating.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Yeah he will be getting fined for that. Bad bad play

  • NYBurgh79

    I agree too! The steelers FO will need to upgrade his position next year . In the draft or free agency .

  • NinjaMountie

    Hopefully we can hold them to 3

  • Zarbor

    NO..our defense plays great except for one idiot.

  • Chad Sanborn

    we have yet to put a 4 quarter game together.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    someone has to hack the arrowhead audio system and play Renegade. Now!

  • melblount

    Artie Burns needs to stop the “I am God” stuff after making plays, and in this case, being in the area when his guy drops a ball.

  • Smitty 6788

    Mitchell first miss the sack on 3rd down then rough the passer.. Dont get much worse than that..

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hah. Not today. Not with these zebras.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    int

  • Taylor Williams

    It’s a offensive league against the best offense in football. The D can’t be blamed

  • gentry_gee

    See? It’s the D’s fault. The offense has scored 10 points and it’s the D’s fault.

  • Evan Eremita

    Play calling on the goal line, play calling on what seems like every single third and short, and then yes that too

  • alevin16

    mitchell you owe us a turnover

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Keep em out of the end zone

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Yeah but that never happens if AB has better awareness. You ain’t wrong but AB takes some blame too.

  • francesco

    Awful tackling is rearing its ugly head again. Letting teams stay in the game by not having a killer mentality. This is going to bite us in the end.

  • Romel Roze

    When will we get rid if this bum Mike Mitchell. This moron has the QB dead to right and whiffed on the tackle then gets a 15 penalty.

    I stead a sack and more momentum on the Steelers side and gettingbthe ball back KC is threatning to score….pathetic

  • Yeshaya

    Play of the game right here. Deebo time

  • Romel Roze

    Play calling and execution sucks

  • Shannon Stephenson

    never said it was the D’s fault…where did I say that.

  • melblount

    Tomlin already thinking up his what we learned speech.

  • Taylor Williams

    Oh please. We shut them out!!! The best offense in the league. They’re gonna score eventually

  • Chad Sanborn

    Thats on Tomlin. He doesn’t have the killer instinct needed to put other teams away.

  • NYBurgh79

    I agree too!

  • Romel Roze

    Yeah, not even when you have 1st and goal at the 3. OMG!

    Some fans love to make excuses for incompetence.

  • Steve Johnson

    Ha! LMAO!

  • pittfan

    lol

  • alevin16

    I am thinking no matter what happens here Haley goes mad bomber

  • Zarbor

    Few folks on defense that need to put their stamp on the game now! Cam has been quiet all game. Mr. Watt? Where are you? And the milk carton guy Bud Dupree….missing. Time to show up now!

  • Chad Weiss

    Truth is offense can’t score touchdowns.Chiefs shouldn’t even be in this game.

  • Chad Sanborn

    At least the Ratbirds lost today

  • nd fan

    That’s horrible mike Mitchell you are a bum anyone who defends this idiot needs watch him on every play he sucks and is as dirty as anyone who plays

  • Steve Johnson

    No, time for a new O/C

  • Buccos9

    The Steelers seemed to start playing a soft defense with big cushions. Why?

  • Jay Clam

    Good teams find a way to win, bad teams find a way to lose. We’ve looked a lot better today, but we’re still 3-2 with some bad losses. Let’s see which team we actually are against the NFL’s best.

  • Yeshaya

    YES!!!!!!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo pick 6. book it

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Big stop

  • Jay Clam

    Huge stop. But they’re going for it. Which seems dumb to me but whatever

  • Romel Roze

    Why in the hell are you throwing on 1st and goal at the 3!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lets go

  • Applebite

    Dirty Red.

  • Jay Clam

    YESSSSSS

  • Jay Clam

    HUGE

  • alevin16

    i cant watch

  • Yeshaya

    Don’t be dumb don’t fight..

  • dany

    they gotta go for it

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    YESSSSSS!!!!

  • Yeshaya

    I’m terrified the refs are gonna screw this up

  • NinjaMountie

    Yes…..int…dropped..i don’t care

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Harrison almost with his pick

  • NinjaMountie

    That’s a td

  • melblount

    Who knew there was an NFL HC dumber than Mikey?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    my bad Davis

  • Yeshaya

    Get the play off

  • dany

    int drop whatever, steelers ball!!

  • I4giveSteelers

    dirty red

  • Smitty 6788

    What a freaking stop

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Hold on Roger Goocell making a phone call

  • RJ

    That was a dumb move on Andy Reid’s part.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    We need a couple of first downs

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Dink and Dunk the football! Move the ball around!

  • Yeshaya

    Please offense. The defense is playing insane. Give them some help

  • NinjaMountie

    That was a td

  • Yeshaya

    6 minutes TD drive would be swell

  • Zarbor

    That looked like a TD…got away with one

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    come on Bell. Earnn your $$

  • Chad Sanborn

    Haley called that play for Andy

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    Where are those people saying Sean Davis can’t cover????

  • Jaybird

    Big pass to McDonald . Book it

  • Nathanael Dory

    Challenge!

  • afrazier9

    Mike tomlin suck so much if we loose. Has to go on losers list

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Yes…….

  • Nathanael Dory

    Challenge!!!!!

  • Applebite

    Need the TE here…

  • alevin16

    first down!

  • Nathanael Dory

    its an INT!

  • Jaybird

    Or a big run from bell.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Ram it down their throats now please.

  • Yeshaya

    Bell is something else. Wow. Huge getting out of the shadow of the EZ

  • Smitty 6788

    Great run Juice

  • Chad Sanborn

    if anything that would end up be a TD before and interception

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    BELL more like that plant in Lil Shop of Horrors!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    money run by Bell

  • francesco

    Bell is mvp today that’s for sure.

  • ryan72384

    Looked kinda like a TD

  • Taylor Williams

    I don’t know why these idiots fans keep blaming the D

  • dany

    Good stop, but give the ball right back to the defense and the results will not be the same. Gotta score

  • I4giveSteelers

    Nixxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • WilliamSekinger

    I guess the D can dominate the best offense in the league ALL FREAKING GAME!

  • alevin16

    Gee Nix is in the game and look what happens, I guess Haley will take him out now

  • Yeshaya

    ROOSIE NIX JUST SLAYED A MAN

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    200 yrds yet

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Uh Oh….somebody learned how to run the ball

  • Applebite

    I seriously need that Nix jersey…

  • Chad Sanborn

    had 3 feet down.

  • Yeshaya

    I’m feeling it

  • I4giveSteelers

    nixxxxxxxxxxx

  • Nathanael Dory

    I see..

  • NYBurgh79

    Impose your will offense !

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bomb to Bryant

  • Yeshaya

    Don’t even joke like that

  • alevin16

    shhhhhh 😉

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    just about to post this

  • Dorian James

    NEED POINTS BADLY

  • Chad Sanborn

    Bell gets 200+ today?

  • Zarbor

    Need to give Bell a break…

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m for play action

  • Shannon Stephenson

    keep running…we have wore them down and now just impose our will….eat clock

  • Joseph Shaw

    LB really is a special talent.

  • Jaybird

    Do we ever do it?

  • Applebite

    I’d call Bryant’s number here…

  • Yeshaya

    Even that dumpster fire of a run he turns into a no gain

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The girls must like him

  • WilliamSekinger

    Should know by now, that 2 feet down doesn’t equal a catch. Have to maintain possession through the catch, and he didnt.

  • Yeshaya

    Outlaw time. calling it

  • alevin16

    How about a short throw to jesse James in the middle?

  • Romel Roze

    Our passing game suck!!!

    Bell cannot carry this team for 11 straight games. He will not last.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Haley doesn’t do play action

  • Nathanael Dory

    Keep Nix in there!

  • Smitty 6788

    Line up AB over Mitchell and work him

  • Jaybird

    I’m going McDonald again

  • Yeshaya

    Cmon refs

  • Shannon Stephenson

    nice to get fresh legs in there to

  • Taylor Williams

    Didn’t work

  • alevin16

    I hate 5 wides

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    he was all over him

  • Zarbor

    Ben strikes again…can’t put the ball on the money. Sad. Bell doing all the work and can’t get an accurate pass out of this dude.

  • I4giveSteelers

    ben is not scrambling anymore…i remember fake punt to get dude in air

  • ryan72384

    I have zero faith in our passing game at this point.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Ben looks to be playing jumpy.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Hasn’t been as good this year, but that was what impressed me the most last year. He danced around a lot, but he almost never ran for negative yardage.

  • Yeshaya

    Are the gunners supposed to run past him and try to prevent the touchback? Didn’t look like they were concerned with actually returning it

  • Smitty 6788

    Nope too much pressure

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    w could use a turnover on this drive

  • Shannon Stephenson

    they had a free rusher at him

  • pittfan

    Pick 6! Book it!!!!

  • Smitty 6788

    Letts goooo defense

  • Zarbor

    How about an accurate pass on 3rd down for once this season Benji. Geesh, is that too much to ask for?

  • Chris92021

    We are never going to get any calls for Brown or Big Ben.

  • afrazier9

    We are plating not to loose

  • Dorian James

    Yep, defense can hold them forever

  • Michael Cunningham

    Our total yards this game …..

  • Mister Wirez

    5 wide = no options & no protection

  • Chad Weiss

    Here’s where defense needs to make statement. No wearing down don’t go into prevent , attack

  • Taylor Williams

    The talent is there. Juju is clutch. Bryant isn’t 2015 self, but good enough. Brown is top 3

  • Jaybird

    Brown top three???????

  • Smitty 6788

    Bruh did you even see the free rusher?? He did great to get it out and give AB a chance

  • Applebite

    They could replace that 5 wide with a Trips right and do everything they need to.

  • Yeshaya

    A dominant 3 and out. Just make your tackles

  • ryan72384

    I know. It’s Ben

  • Joseph Shaw

    I saw. Ben makes that throw typically. Sorry.

  • Jaybird

    Apple turnover coming up beav

  • Smitty 6788

    No

  • Taylor Williams

    They made a statement last drive.
    They’re gonna be gassed, just watch

  • Mister Wirez

    I was just to type that. Play it safe boys, till you lose.

  • Yeshaya

    Also no dumb penalties please. Please please please

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    you dont want a deebo pick 6?

  • Jaybird

    Great tackle

  • Applebite

    Let’s go Dirty Red…

  • alevin16

    See mitchell, haden is a pro, he didn’t slam him or hit him in the face

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    can’t let them score

  • Mister Wirez

    Ben meets Wall

  • Yeshaya

    Smith is spooked. He’s scrambling with plenty of time

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Dirty!!

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Really? Do they have comparable weapons that aren’t producing? I’m talking about underachieving relative to what one would expect considering the talent.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Need a sack or TO

  • Yeshaya

    Crud I forgot. Deebo pick 6!!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Dirty on the run

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    like right now

  • alevin16

    oh no 3rd and long

  • Yeshaya

    Ben in the tent. Well then

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    huge play

  • Yeshaya

    Holding on JH

  • Shannon Stephenson

    flag?

  • Yeshaya

    Really obvious hold. Really dumb one too. Thank God

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    whew

  • ryan72384

    Holds everywhere

  • dany

    Matakevich blitz haha

  • Jaybird

    Block in back / holding

  • NinjaMountie

    Finally a flag

  • Yeshaya

    Yup. He definitely had the first without it thought, that’s hilarious,

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    sack/int

  • Shannon Stephenson

    yes….back em up…but now its 3rd and long…our cyrptonite

  • dany

    He’s constantly having to escape, nice

  • Yeshaya

    Bah

  • Buccos9

    The D has played a pretty good game, but if the offense plays this way against the Patriots, we might be behind by two TDs right now.

  • ryan72384

    Of course

  • Dorian James

    I’d like to see Chick, and Watt on pass rush downs

  • Chad Sanborn

    probably 3

  • Yeshaya

    We’re getting good pressure. A nice 10 yard sack would be beautiful

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Lets go D

  • Av232

    Tick. Tock.

  • Chad Weiss

    Let the dogs out

  • Yeshaya

    I’m afraid you’re probably right

  • Jaybird

    Shazier is going to get a pick

  • francesco

    Defense is getting tired now.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Is Dirty Red in?

  • Dorian James

    Vince went out injured

  • Jay Clam

    And that’s the game

  • Chad Sanborn

    welp….

  • NinjaMountie

    Yup

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    every time Mitchell make a stop do he have go head first

  • ryan72384

    Lol unreal

  • Shannon Stephenson

    and there it is

  • melblount

    I told you so.

  • Paul RK

    typical !!!!

  • Jay Clam

    This team needs to learn how to play a full 60 fkn minutes of football

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Missed that. Did they say what it was?

  • NinjaMountie

    We need 6 here

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    I put this on the offense for not scoring enough. F this offense. It sucks.

  • melblount

    And no the offense needs to win the game.

    Hail Mary, full of grace…

  • I4giveSteelers

    well Artie

  • Joseph Shaw

    This team is 7-Eleven.

    Can’t close.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    way too much time. saw Raiders score 17 points with 5 minutes to go to erase a 14 point steelers in the 70’s

  • Smitty 6788

    Let’s go Ben put this game away..

  • Dorian James

    Not yet look like the midsection though

  • Rick McClelland

    Great tackle. Holy freakin crap

  • melblount

    MISERABLE team.

  • dany

    *shakes head*

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Damn Burns.

  • Applebite

    That bad play call in red zone by Haley, comes into play here…

  • Taylor Williams

    The offense needs to score

  • melblount

    Mikey hasn’t even made his BIG mistake yet.

  • Mister Wirez

    57 yard TD. Thanks for not tackling boys

  • Nathanael Dory

    Steelers getting sloppy with rush gap integrity

  • Dorian James

    Yep the defense did a wonderful job up until that point you can’t hold them out of the end zone forever

  • Steve Johnson

    Artie got caught looking in the backfield.

  • ryan72384

    If somebody would finish a play and sack his ass smh.

  • alevin16

    I am guessing Haley goes 3 bombs and a punt

  • melblount

    Again, I told you so.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    *bangs head against the wall*

  • Paul RK

    at this rate we’ll be one and done in the playoffs (wild card weekend) after winning are weak division….

  • francesco

    ABurns…really!

  • Yeshaya

    Our offense can still lock this up. Run out the clock with a 6 minute drive. They can do it, but will they?

  • Jay Clam

    It seems against logic that there is always one of those breakdown huge plays against us.

  • Chad Weiss

    Steelers with predictable offense will run it three times playing conservative with a two point lead.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Hip. Need Timmons

  • Jaybird

    Mitchell or Tomlin? Cause Mitchell has made his mistakes

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Win or lose, this is a bad team right now. They can’t get out of their own way.

  • Randy

    Dont blame the defense blame thr offense for not scoring in 2nd half

  • DAWAARE

    artie burns BUUUUST

  • Steel Realist PAul

    Like I say each and every week – Burns is a liability. That’s 100% on him.

  • Mister Wirez

    How dumb of Reid to not kick a FG

  • melblount

    Well, at least Mikey had plenty of time to work on his “What we learned” speech.

    Think Reid shoulda took the 3?

  • Steel Realist PAul

    Way overrated

  • Taylor Williams

    I doubt it. We had a chance to be up 24 to 3 in the 4th quarter

  • Ray Smith

    Steelers respond with a strong 3 and out

  • WreckIess

    You called the best offense in the league scoring a TD? Do you want a cookie or…?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, this isn’t on the D.

  • Ichabod

    Can out offense score more than 10

  • melblount

    Twilight Zone.

  • Steve Johnson

    No, Pathetic O/C. Up until now, the Defense had played Exceptionally Well. 3rd & 1, pass, FG. 3rd & 2? Pass, incomplete, ends the drive.

  • Taylor Williams

    Landry Jones throws a TD to close the game

  • Kevin Schwartz

    All right boys, lets close this one out with a strong drive.

  • Zarbor

    Well, they don’t call him Burns for nothing. So much for that great pass defense. Alex doing his best young Big Ben impersonation. Lets see what AARP Ben and this offense response is going to be. I’m call one of two things. Field goal or punt.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Well, here it is. What kind of team is this? Winners find ways to win, losers find ways to lose.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    im guessing bad ben pick 6

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    How many points has the offense scored in the 2nd half?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    agreed

  • Dee Evolution

    That holding call was assessed on the wrong person. Smith would have been sacked on 3rd and 7 had the Chiefs’ right guard not held. Should have been 3rd and 17 instead of 3rd and 6.

  • gentry_gee

    Did everyone see what #11 did? That’s what Ben used to do.

  • Ray Smith

    Even a blind a squirrel finds a nut

  • Dorian James

    Let’s stop pretending the defense blew this Game boys. the offense needs to put up some damn points.

  • Yeshaya

    Ok Bell, be clutch and bleed out the clock. Ben do what you need to do. Just kill 6 minutes

  • Mister Wirez

    Yep, innacurate BEN, and Todd calling dumb low percentage plays.

  • gentry_gee

    Now, we’ll see what Ben has left.

  • dany

    Bell can certainly do a 6 minute drive, but they gotta throw here and there, it’s on you Ben!

  • Evan Eremita

    Don’t forget bens specialty lately

  • Randy

    Like 3 and out

  • Dorian James

    Absolutely nothing

  • Jaybird

    Stop , this isn’t Ben’s fault

  • ryan72384

    That’s typical of the defense. The dam breaks eventually but they did their job today. We should have been up 3 scores in the fourth quarter.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    75 yards to go.

  • Icancoach

    Exactly. This will tell us.

  • gentry_gee

    If the O doesn’t score on this drive, it’s game over.

  • Rick McClelland

    Keep running. Thats the ticket. Don’t give Ben a chance for the INT.

  • Buccos9

    I give Artie Burns credit for not dancing after he let his man slip away for a TD. I guess not every failure deserves a dance. Poor decision by Hilton to try to strip the ball rather than tackling the guy. But let’s face it, this offence has scored only 10 points and wasted opportunities. Unless they start scoring more, it will be hard to win games against good teams.

  • Yeshaya

    Today? Nada. Throughout the season. Not much more

  • alevin16

    have ben rollout, that will take about 6 minutes

  • Zarbor

    Miss field goal opportunity coming back to bite us.

  • Dee Evolution

    AB get down…

  • Yeshaya

    Yeah…

  • Mister Wirez

    We don’t live in our fears time… Unleash HELL Mike

  • Nunya

    I just can’t get down on a defense that has only given up 10 on the road so far. Bad play, but excellent game so far. Offense is the problem here.

  • alevin16

    pretty much everything is coming back to bite us, no killer instinct

  • Ike Evans

    Hi guys….win or lose I just came to say this offense isn’t good

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Agreed.

  • gentry_gee

    Yes. Yes, it is.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Think how Andy Reid feels by not kicking that FG. Theyd be up by 1 right now

  • ryan72384

    Lol they are a liability

  • T-51b

    The Bend But Don’t Break Offense, brought to you by the 2017 Steelers!

  • Yeshaya

    Plus 3 of those points were on a short field off the safety kick. Defense has played plenty good today

  • alevin16

    I think this may be the game here

  • Yeshaya

    Play of the game. Again

  • WreckIess

    A lot of doom and gloom on this board. We have the ball and the lead. Relax.

  • Nunya

    I’m gonna feel a lot better with a 1st down here…

  • Mister Wirez

    I’d like to buy two vowels Alex… Can I have a T & D?

  • Chad Sanborn

    good enough to beat any team in the league.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    biggest play of game right now

  • Yeshaya

    Oh my loving freaking GOd

  • gentry_gee

    MIRACLE!

  • ryan72384

    Omg

  • Shannon Stephenson

    TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Icancoach

    Sometimes it’s just lucky

  • Zarbor

    Wow! AB…what luck. Bail out Ben again

  • gentry_gee

    MIRACLE

  • Yeshaya

    He is not a human being. Oh my dear lord

  • Dee Evolution

    JESUS CHRIST!!!

  • Jaybird

    F ING unreal

  • Smitty 6788

    Let’s goooooo

  • WilliamSekinger

    AB is superhuman!

  • Paul RK

    immaculate reception #2 !!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Immaculate Reception 2.0

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Told ya.

  • Ray Smith

    Unreal…finally some luck wow

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    NICE

  • Steve Johnson

    3rd and two, again, they throw the DAMM ball. They got lucky, TD.

  • Applebite

    AB going AB….
    But now the Defense has to close it out.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    My feed is delayed, and I still haven’t seen the Brown play.

  • alevin16

    bout time we have some luck. Better to be lucky than good

  • Ichabod

    Nice pass ben

  • Jason

    and just like that AB is in the winners column

  • dany

    D’Anthony and AB are outta this world

  • Ray Smith

    I would have ABs baby if I were able

  • gentry_gee

    The god’s bailed out Ben.

  • Nathanael Dory

    ABBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB

  • Dorian James

    What a terrible play call turn into something good by AB

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    WHOA!!!

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Incredible. Way to go AB

  • alevin16

    yup!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY

  • Nunya

    Ben drew that up in the huddle

  • Steel Realist PAul

    Man, AB is Superman

  • Jaybird

    Amazing bro . Amazing

  • CommonSenseGoneWild

    Insane

  • NinjaMountie

    Finally we get some luck

  • Smitty 6788

    Huh!?? Now you can stfu

  • Rob S.

    What a terrible decision! So much for not forcing it to Brown. Now we know what Ben was doing in the tent, sticking a horseshoe up his butt!

  • Yeshaya

    AB just saved the offense’s collective bacon. Who needs playcalling when you have AB

  • Danny Porter

    84 is a beast

  • gentry_gee

    A throw into double coverage that should have been picked…

  • Applebite

    This game is not over yet…

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Wow

  • alevin16

    Now don’t play to lose D, you still need to push them

  • Chad Sanborn

    AB is a magician

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Um ok.

  • Yeshaya

    He was aiming to bounce it off the DB, pinpoint accuracy

  • Chad Weiss

    Ben owes ab on that. I went from heart stoping to heart racing in one second

  • melblount

    HC Mikey’s post-game speech: “We learned we need to be lucky to win.”

  • Shannon Stephenson

    we need a 4 and out

  • Smitty 6788

    AB without question the best in the business..

  • Mister Wirez

    It really was a bad call. We’ll take luck though.

  • pittfan

    AB IS A WILDMAN

  • WilliamSekinger

    Not just luck. The team was due. The Chiefs defense held them all game long, and they broke out in the end.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Add this to best AB plays.

  • Jaybird

    D Anthony?!?!?! Lol

  • gentry_gee

    Maybe Ben will shake the rust off for the rest of the year.

  • Buccos9

    Poor, poor decision by Ben. That should have been intercepted. Luck and Antonio Brown saved his butt.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, everything I expected.

  • Nathanael Dory

    lol good one

  • Applebite

    Tunch’s call is hilarious…

  • Mister Wirez

    +1 that’s an INT 99 out of 100 times.

  • NinjaMountie

    Well, AB cost Ben an int and made up for one. Clean slate.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    why we kick it to KC who has great returners…is Danny Smith insane?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup.

  • SilverSteel

    Exactly 😎

  • Darth Blount 47

    BUSINESS IS BOOMIN!

  • Jonas

    I can live with that.

    Ball needs to come before AB is free free. Safety had days to roll over.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Really? You must be so much fun at parties 😀

  • Mister Wirez

    Hmm?

  • Zarbor

    So, I’ve gotten my answer. We need a QB badly….Hey Alex, look at the weapons we have over here. The rookie is breathing hard behind you.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    How r these guys way open way down field

  • Paul RK

    Prevent D……. 🙁

  • Evan Eremita

    Bens still an idiot and haleys play calling still makes me want to jump off a bridge, THANK HEAVENS FOR AB

  • Dee Evolution

    Garbage yards.

  • Zarbor

    So much for that great pass defense

  • Yeshaya

    Not over yet…

  • Paul RK

    OMFG !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    right down the middle 2x

  • ryan72384

    Lol comical

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    int pleeease

  • jconeoone C

    Dang I laughed out loud for real reading this. Woke my kids up from his nap….

  • alevin16

    seriously

  • Applebite

    Here it comes….Need Shazier to put his Cape on. NOW.

  • Yeshaya

    Ok guys catch your breath, play like have the first 3 quarters. Buckle down

  • DSG

    Dodges a bullet there. Bell avging 6 yds per carry and we go empty on 3rd and 2. Idiotic

  • Smitty 6788

    Defense needs to step up

  • Jaybird

    I’m going with a Haden int

  • dany

    this will be a 2 point game just like in january

  • Shannon Stephenson

    WTF!!!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    whew… lucky there

  • gentry_gee

    I know.

  • Yeshaya

    A wise man told me whats next: Deebo pick-6. Burns just didn’t play D on that one.

  • alevin16

    where is our D???

  • Steel Realist PAul

    Sensabaugh anyone???

  • Dorian James

    This is not the players fault, this is schematic, get out of that prevent

  • Nunya

    Ok…now I’m getting irritated with the D. Their head has left the game. People are wide open everywhere.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    these dudes not laying down

  • dany

    why was he so open?

  • Zarbor

    Very concerned about Burns…Its either feast or famine

  • Mister Wirez

    Zone prevent defense

  • Yeshaya

    Burns really does have a dancing problem. Maybe he’s practicing for DWTS

  • Steel Realist PAul

    They need to get him off the field before he loses the game for them

  • Steve Johnson

    Artie Burns, I think.

  • Yeshaya

    Burns just picked the wrong guy to cover. He was responsible for that third of the field and he left it open

  • Nunya

    What the hell? Hey Butler…rushing 3 is absolutely useless because people are running wide open. Might want to at least offer pressure!

  • ryan72384

    Man I love prevent defense

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell is gonna get a chance to salt this one away.

    Unless they go onsides.

  • gentry_gee

    Well they are bringing extra.

  • Applebite

    Not trusting this….here comes the onside kick.

  • alevin16

    or Haley starts throwing like crazy

  • dany

    With how Bell is running, they’d be dumb not to onside

  • melblount

    So you guys DO know right that a GREAT defensive game means playing GREAT for more than 30-45 minutes, right?

  • Nunya

    I suggest throwing this one off the safety’s head to Bryant

  • L Garou

    Run, run, pass, punt.. coming up..

  • Zarbor

    I remember the days I would love Ben in this situation. Now just holding my breath that he doesn’t turn it over or punt the ball back to them with plenty of time left with a 3 and out

  • Steeler Nation

    i thought 84 = lumber guess 84 = machine

  • gentry_gee

    YES.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Will you shut up, Bungles fan?!?!?!?!?!!?!

  • Yeshaya

    Ok Bell, just play like you have all game.

  • NinjaMountie

    Just curious, as I wasn’t here. We’re all these people praising AB for “bailing” out Ben equally as critical of him being blatantly responsible for Ben’s int?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    this drive ia already over.

  • alevin16

    I think play action would be ok with me

  • Dorian James

    Yes we were. at least I was

  • gentry_gee

    Let Ben throw an int.

  • Yeshaya

    It was mentioned that AB just stopped mid route, but we didn’t chew him out really emphatically

  • Kevin Schwartz

    KC is averaging 32.8 ppg this year. They have 13 this game, 3 of them coming off a muffed kickoff, and the last 10 in the last few minutes while in prevent.

  • Smitty 6788

    Why bring in this personnel on 1st smh

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben to Brown? Or Bell again?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Steelers we need a first down!

  • Applebite

    Need to go back to McDonald….

  • Evan Eremita

    Waiting for the 5 wide

  • alevin16

    Here is the game, Haley calls a bomb

  • Yeshaya

    Why are they using their TOs now? They only saving 5 seconds

  • Nunya

    You have to throw here. Don’t have to use a timeout either way

  • dany

    That Thomas td was fine, if they allow another here it’s all for nothing for this D

  • gentry_gee

    This is the game.

  • alevin16

    cabt watch again

  • NinjaMountie

    As long as it was acknowledged

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben to Brown? Or Bell…. again?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    need the 1st!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    dang

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bell sucks as a 2nd WR

  • Yeshaya

    D***

  • ryan72384

    Ben just can’t make a pass on third down to save his life

  • Chad Sanborn

    this offense can’t win because it keeps losing

  • Mister Wirez

    Why not throw on first or second down?

  • alevin16

    I have a bad feeling that game may be over

  • L Garou

    Run, run, pass, punt .. Told ya.

  • NinjaMountie

    C’mon D

  • Nunya

    I don’t like where we are at right now. Defense has gaping holes. I take my chances man to man and send pressure.

  • Smitty 6788

    Defense let’s go

  • Dee Evolution

    I thought this is why we needed Martavis and Justin Hunter.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    All Sunday every Sunday lol

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    This offense blows chunks.

  • melblount

    Prepare for the worst. Maybe just let them score fast, eh?

  • Gautam Ramani

    Should have passed on first or 2nd down

  • Danny Porter

    About to have a heart attack

  • I4giveSteelers

    well its fitting that D can win it here

  • Steve Johnson

    Run, Run, Throw. Todd Haley?

  • Ichabod

    Big “3 and out” Ben

  • Shannon Stephenson

    The defense looks tired again…dont like it.

  • gentry_gee

    Someone should tell them about play-action.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    needed to force them to use timeouts

  • Gautam Ramani

    30 points per game?

  • melblount

    Nice drive.

  • Jay Clam

    Horrible

  • Steel Realist PAul

    All KC has to do is throw at Burns and they score

  • Ike Evans

    I hope they lose tbh ….#firehaley

  • Gautam Ramani

    Turnove!!

  • Zarbor

    That’s the difference between a once great QB and a game manager. Old Ben would have extended that play by rolling which is when he is most accurate.

  • melblount

    Sad, sad team.

  • Rick McClelland

    The next series is the game.

  • Mister Wirez

    Just stop. Come on man.

  • gentry_gee

    Elite offense.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Agree

  • melblount

    Ya think?

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    No, every TWO games. You didn’t read closely enough.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I got to pee but stuck to my seat

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    that’s what he should’ve did

  • Jay Clam

    They’re gonna get two huge plays like last drive to start out and get on our side of the field in like 15 seconds. Guaranteed. Soft coverage guaranteed.

  • Ray Smith

    I think they meant 30
    points totaled over a 3 game span

  • NinjaMountie

    We need a to here. Let’s go d

  • gentry_gee

    Old Ben would’ve made sure that play got made.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Beav…. I know you have been saving it. So NOW is the time.

    D E E B O!

    BOOK IT!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Lol

  • Dorian James

    Old Ben probably makes enough plays during the game that we’re not even having this discussion late in the game LOL

  • pittfan

    DEFENSE!!!!

  • Smitty 6788

    Do not kick it to Hill

  • capehouse

    Thought Ben could make a play by the 6th game. Guess not. terrible.

  • gentry_gee

    Oh brother.

  • ryan72384

    Lol

  • Mister Wirez

    1 first down would have buried them… Thanks Todd/Genius!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Danny Smith is stupid

  • Chad Sanborn

    here we go

  • alevin16

    of course

  • dany

    first non negative post!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    time for Deebo’s pick 6

  • Nunya

    Out kicking the coverage will kill you every time.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Yes, if you were scoring at home, that WAS a hold.

  • Robert Builder

    can I just say we suck on 3rd down

  • alevin16

    Go man, go down swinging

  • gentry_gee

    Plenty of time.

  • Rick McClelland

    Deebo can take it to the house.

  • Smitty 6788

    Smh

  • L Garou

    Wow, great kick coverage (lol)

  • WilliamSekinger

    Fire Danny Smith, that should never happen.

  • Jason Vancil

    This will be a tough one to swallow.

  • Applebite

    Come on, turnover time….

  • Yeshaya

    3 more stops D

  • gentry_gee

    Come on D.

  • pittfan

    Hill Isco done for the day

  • alevin16

    Watt has been too quiet

  • T-51b

    Danny Smith is the most hated coach in Pittsburgh – per every Steelers message board I’ve ever seen.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    1.

  • Mister Wirez

    Inexcusable to let that many return yards.

  • dany

    well hill out wll help

  • Shannon Stephenson

    why r these guys wide open

  • Buccos9

    Three man rush? NO!!!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    shades of that last drive

  • Paul RK

    Prevent D Zone

  • L Garou

    Kelsey = TD..

  • Jason Vancil

    Shazier gotta come up huge

  • Yeshaya

    Nice Tuitt

  • Nunya

    Butler…are you ignorant???? Rushing 3 is killing us!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    tjhats 2

  • SilverSteel

    Where the hell are all Dupree’s moves?

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Uh, so…where is this 30+ point a game Offensive monster I hear about? I mean Christ Ben, you can’t even make a pass that counts without some form of divine intervention.

    But I digress, because some how this game will make Tomlin and Ben think everything is awesome.

    My support for you Defense. You will need all the prayers you can get.

  • dany

    3 game winning drives? ok they will win haha

  • Yeshaya

    Damn lucky there. 2 more stops…

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    thats 3.

  • Nunya

    GET OUT OF ZONE!!!!

  • Rick McClelland

    Deebo time

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I am so nervous.

  • capehouse

    why can’t they cover this #14?

  • Chad Sanborn

    how was that not holding on Debo

  • Applebite

    They got away with that one…

  • Yeshaya

    JH !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    deeeeebo

  • alevin16

    I am too old for this

  • Yeshaya

    Omg crown this man!!!!!!

  • Rick McClelland

    I called it. Deebo time.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    He’s a hate-the-face guy

  • Jason

    Harrison got more pressure in 3 downs then Dupree has all game

  • Rick McClelland

    God I hope so.

  • Darth Blount 47

    And little do the Chiefs know yet, but Ben took a “Big” Ben on their field in that tent. Just FYI.

  • capehouse

    F yeah I could run through a wall right now. Way to go D!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo disappointed me by not getting a pick 6. But the tackle is acceptable

  • Applebite

    Man…Haley owe the Defense like the IRS.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’d sign Bowman.

  • alevin16

    Can’t Watt flip sides? That way we have Deebo and Watt

  • NYBurgh79

    great job Defense! I wish the offense could help out the defense .

  • WilliamSekinger

    Kelce is gonna have a fit again

  • Yeshaya

    But actually:
    Winners:
    Bell
    AB
    O-line
    Hilton
    Tuitt

    Losers:
    Ben?
    Special teams
    Passing game

    I’m missing guys but I can’t think straight

  • pittfan

    Hahahaha!

  • Yeshaya

    Loser: Burns

  • Dorian James

    I like that list

  • WilliamSekinger

    Deeeeeeeeebo!

  • gentry_gee

    The D won this game. And great running by Bell. They’ll need to find a QB in very near future to win the SB.

  • Zarbor

    Imagine what this team could be if we had the young Ben? Oh that’s right SB champs.

    Shame really

  • francesco

    Way to go offense. Just enough to give me a near heart attack!

  • Steeler Nation

    fck me whew
    !

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Ben wasn’t bad he just wasn’t good.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Oh so being horrible and doing basically nothing in a big game, after whining all year about life and retirement, while getting paid millions….and I can’t still be critical? Go enjoy your win. You’ll be back with the rest complaining next loss about the team and all that. But hey, next loss makes it classy I guess.

  • 太阳三联

    YEAAAAAAA AHAHAHAAA AAA!

  • C2K

    James saves Tomlin there. 4th and 2 punt on the 35? Super conservative play calling at the end, which goes all the way back to Arians.

  • DirtDawg1964

    And all the negative nellies will just whine the Steelers didn’t score enough points.

  • Michael

    We’re not getting 30 a game due to Martavis a shadow of himself and BELL rusty.

  • Yeshaya

    I mentioned him in my first list 😉

    “Winners:
    Deebo
    Some of Deebo’s friends”

  • Nathanael Dory

    What a game!

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Artie Burns needs to hit the film room asap

  • Dorian James

    The Steelers are undefeated when I pick against them in my pool LOL

  • pittfan

    Too bad for the doom and gloom squad today!

  • NYBurgh79

    I agree too!

  • NinjaMountie

    Offense still needs a lot of work but they looked better until the redzone

  • ryan72384

    Ben looks like a deflated balloon with zero confidence.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I was gonna say – anyone want back on the bandwagon?

  • Michael

    May be FILM is too big on Artie?

  • DirtDawg1964

    They will still whine, cry and complain.

  • pdupuis

    OC has to go, we may never get to 30 ppg with Haley as OC.

  • Chad Sanborn

    LOL you really are a dick aren’t you

  • Nathanael Dory

    It wasnt awarness. Its was cookiness

  • Shannon Stephenson

    they are still doomin and gloomin even in a victory

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’ll tell you what, besides maybe two hicups on defense I think we are pretty good. VDub in crutches sux balls tho. He had one of his best games.

  • Darth Blount 47

    @melblount:disqus

    Where you at?!

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, they showed some glimpses of what the offense could be. I still wouldn’t be surprised if they put it together.

  • WilliamSekinger

    The offense you all saw was the Steelers offense on the road against a great KC defense. This offense is going to be ok, especially when they get back home.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Had ‘em all the way. 🙂

  • Crashcrash777

    Calling him out!

  • DirtDawg1964

    With all the other grammas at the old folks home.

  • Yeshaya

    I feel you. I’ll move him to my “winners, but still disappointing by not getting a pick-6” list

  • Joseph Shaw

    Couldn’t be happier!

  • GravityWon

    Great defense today except for a couple breakdowns by Burns. Those should be correctable.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben projected to have more interceptions than touchdowns this year….geeze.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Punchable face.

  • Applebite

    Not sure what Haley is thinking. At all. But he better start unthinking it. He’s the single biggest obstacle this offense has. That series of calls in the RZ was totally unacceptable. And they stopped going to the TEs.

    I don’t like that one single bit.

  • Darth Blount 47

    OMG… YES!

  • melblount

    So James Harrison has produced MORE in a few snaps than DuPree has produced in FIVE GAMES.

    Remind me – why was James NOT playing again?

  • Chris92021

    Deebo’s sack is right up there with Troy’s strip sack of Flacco in 2010. I think it will have that type of effect for us. Whew!!

  • NinjaMountie

    Better playcalling in the red zone would do wonders…especially inside the 5

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Playing arguably the best team in the league and their home and we put up a lot of yards and allowed very little against what was the best offense in football….great game on both sides honestly.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’m surprised The Pats didn’t do it over the weekend.

  • Chris92021

    Haley still needs to go. He is a hindrance.

  • Taylor Williams

    We should’ve destroyed them

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    What bandwagon, LOL? The “this offense is constantly underperforming and can’t put teams away” bandgwagon? Hey, I’m glad they won, but that doesn’t mean I don’t point out the warts. Losers lose and winners win a tough game like this. They won so I’ll call them winners.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Rumor is he wants Oaktown so he can stick at home.

    But they 2-4 now….

  • renoir

    Hill being dinged on the last return was huge…

  • Taylor Williams

    Ask Tomlin. Harrison still has 2 years left on the tank, but Tomlin doesn’t care.

  • DirtDawg1964

    We won. Try to enjoy it for a moment.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Gotta say I for one saw a loss today. Still not sure how we won. The offense is still struggling in the red zone and letting teams hang around is gonna hurt us sooner rather than later. That being said, I liked the play calling so much better today. Run first short throws is where we are supposed to be. No long bombs, nothing over 12 yards. Thats where the rest of our Wins are. I just hope we stick with it going forward.

  • melblount

    So, as long as we get one incredibly lucky long TD each week, we got a shot.

  • Crashcrash777

    True but let’s enjoy the win now, we can trash Haley tomorrow 🙂

  • Taylor Williams

    Look at the stupid routes they run. It’s not creative

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I don’t blame him, but I don’t see the Raiders going far.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Agreed!

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    How much cash would it take to sign the man, do you think?

  • DirtDawg1964

    You’re a real winner.

  • melblount

    Timely special teams play giving up 30 yards just when the Chiefs needed it.

  • NinjaMountie

    Whatever…its part of the game

  • Taylor Williams

    Of course. I’m going insane right now, but I’ll never be satisfied with my underachieving team m

  • DarthYinzer

    Well, put me on the losers list, as I did not think the Steelers would even be close, let alone win.

  • WilliamSekinger

    And their TD wasn’t incredibly lucky?

  • Darth Blount 47

    But what is the projected Win/Loss?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Danny Smith gets a F for the day…horrible ST calls today although it didnt hurt us in the end

  • NinjaMountie

    Just admit you’re a Bengals fan

  • Dr. Watts

    Harrison sacking Smith just when the Steelers needed it to beat the best team in the league

  • melblount

    I posted before the game that “I knew we’d lose,” and stated that reasonably certainly meant we’d win.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Yeah i just don’t get it.

  • gentry_gee

    Me too. But they did somehow make it closer than it should’ve been thanks to less than stellar QB play and stupid play-calling.

  • Taylor Williams

    We always play the chiefs hard. They’re an easy team to plan against. Just a bunch of trick plays that never worked against us.

  • Taylor Williams

    At least you and the pats know this

  • gentry_gee

    They get too cute and think it too much instead of lining up and smashing it up the gut.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Everyone is going to jump all over you, but you have a point. Awesome win, but that Offense has to get way better. Have to give it up to the defense and the team over all for showing up, but for some reason everyone is going to think nothing is wrong…..until the next ugly loss. Then, it will be open season.

    Man, this defense has a bit of swagger back. Hopefully Vince can be back soon.

  • Yeshaya

    Especially the safety punt. That was just they players not knowing the rules. That’s on the coaches.

  • Buccos9

    I was happy that Butler went back to four-man rushes late in the game. Other than Artie Burns watching the QB on the TD he gave up, the D played a really good game. The offense was good except for leaving too many points on the field.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    OK, I asked what kind of team they are. Winners find ways to win and losers find ways to lose. I don’t care about the bad pass-deflection, it won them the game. As fugly as this was, they came down on the side of “winners” today.

    I’m fine with the defense. Not perfect but no team’s is. Overall, I trust them. If the damn offense could just get untracked….

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ugh, I also see the Ratbirds are on his list. As is Dallas.

  • melblount

    Superior defensive effort for about 45-50 minutes. The offensive failures however continue, and their consistent inability to score TDs and make first downs when the game is on the line, almost cost us the game, one incredibly lucky TD notwithstanding.

  • HopeHarveys

    Killer B’s played up to standard. Ravens lose, Steelers win!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Bryant still absent most of the game.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Exactly

  • melblount

    Made a couple of contributions but perhaps the most overrated WR in the NFL.

    Thinking he needs to get back on the stuff.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    We had em all the way

  • WilliamSekinger

    Like it or not naysayers, the Steelers are 4-2. After 4 of 6 on the road.

  • Applebite

    They wanted to see what they had in Watt and see where DuPree and Chick are. Saving Harrison isn’t such a bad deal. He’ll still get his snaps.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    No

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    If Vince doesn’t get hurt I wouldn’t care, but this may be vital and I hope the injury isn’t serious…

  • melblount

    SHOULD be 5-1 or 6-0, and those 2 losses will likely haunt us again this year. GB game perhaps now a W with the Rodgers injury.

  • Chad Sanborn

    very true.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, I mean, there’s no denying that the offense isn’t where it could/should be, but I do think there’s enough there that they could get it together. And, if they do, they have the talent.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He’s good, but AB good? Nah!

  • melblount

    I was bleeding B&G before you were born, bub.

  • melblount

    Gimme a break.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Gotta say, this was a pretty good week of football from a pure excitement point of view. Would have been nice if Rodgers hadn’t gone down, but a lot of good games today.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    30ppg? We can’t even score 30 points.

  • melblount

    Thanks…and the team is a lucky winner today.

  • Shane Mitchell

    James Harrison shows what a Pittsburgh Steeler OLB is supposed to do, DAMN RIGHT HE IS STILL THE BEST OLB ON THIS TEAM.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Little addition to the “sky isn’t falling” argument – we’re currently second in the AFC. If the season were to end today, we would have a bye.

  • Chad Sanborn

    The good news is that the offense trended in the right direction today. Defense is playing really solid ball and who would have really thought that at the beginning of the year. (Not me!)
    Im usually very critical of the team and I still will be. But today was a solid win and we FINALLY showed signs of life on offense. Just have to figure the red zone out now.

  • melblount

    That’s about as dumb a comment as I’ve read here. You’re in effect saying, let’s risk losing games with these guys just to see what they have to give. And so we did, and we did.

    C’mon man.

  • Chad Sanborn

    even over NE?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I really think we could get McDonald more involved. Play action to that guy could really work out for us!!!

  • Evan Eremita

    AB

  • Kevin Schwartz

    According to the ESPN standings. Better win percentage in conference games.

  • melblount

    The O continues to trend toward 17 points a game. That’s a good thing?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    We would own a tie breaker because we we beat KC probably.

  • gdeuce

    they’re so easy to plan against that we were the only team to beat them in the first 6 weeks

  • C2K

    I think they ran one PA on a 2-17.

  • pittfan

    At least you have the balls to admit it! The die hard naysayers are left to nitpick

  • melblount

    The 3rd down pass to Bell on the last, near fateful stalled 3 and out…if McDonald adjusts his route on that play it was a wide open reception and 1st down.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, I woudn’t say they played well, but for about 20 minutes of so, they looked like what they could be.

  • Chad Sanborn

    LOL no but we are finally figuring out how to play our players. Run first with short passes. More points will come if they figure out the red zone woes.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Play action is the devil.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Yep. They figured out how to play between the 20s. Now the last 20 yards… still gotta work on that.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Goodness prevails over the forces of evil.

  • pittfan

    Great win today. Nitpick all you want but this was a Yuge win for the good guys.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, thing is, maybe I’ve missed it, but they don’t seem to be trying to take advantage of MB’s size in the red zone, which is where he really excelled before.

  • Dee Evolution

    We have two Wide outs at 6’4″, 3 tight ends at 6’4, 6’4, and 6’7″, and two power backs behind our feature back. Please, tell me why we can’t convert red zone opportunities.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Where have you been the past few years? We always whoop the chiefs.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    A stretch run fake boot out for a McDonald crosser would be killer! In my mind I guess.

  • melblount

    While you’re basking in the glow this evening, think about this…IF Andy Reid doesn’t pull a Mikey T HC gaffe out of his arse, we probably lose this one.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    What about AB’s Play! Friggin Amazing!

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, as usual with the Steelers, what other team would you rather be (besides NE)? Packers just lost Rodgers. Broncos have Simian at QB. Oakland is just getting Carr back. Carolina? Philly?

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Right now I am walking away with just the fact that no one really gave up. I’m still not happy at all with Ben, but let us see how this team handles the next few games. The defense this year has been pretty solid. Yes, Jordan Howard…but overall more upside than down, by far.

    The offense…I just don’t understand what goes on there. But yes, for 20-25 min, it looked legit and all on the same page.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Haley

  • Chad Sanborn

    He balls every week

  • Evan Eremita

    AB

  • Chad Sanborn

    we still win by 3 if they kick that FG from the 1 yard line.

  • pittfan

    Ride or die Steelers. This team just needed a slap in the face to get things moving.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Haley

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Simean has looked better than ben this season unfortunately.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Who?

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Philly looks decent, but the rest of the NFL looks like crap. NE?…as long as the refs look out for them, they will be ok.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, I’m convinced that 1) Bell taking off training camp was a big deal, and this is the first time he looked fully like himself. 2) They really didn’t have a plan for how to get all their weapons involved (Brown, Bryant, Bell, JuJu), and they’re still figuring out the offense. 3) Ben just hasn’t played well. He’s always been inconsistent, maybe it has a little to do with age, maybe it’s just a few bad games.

  • Michael Cunningham

    I’ll tell you what ..
    Whatever they are paying AB … it’s not enough

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Perhaps, but if you were asking me which you think has a better shot of taking you to a SB, I’d still go with Ben in a heart beat. Experience matters.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    I think its his ego. I mean we all know he gets moody at times. He just needs to enjoy this and love the weapons on hand. Don’t worry that he is not 300+ yards and the man of the game. But yes. Time for this team to focus on football and stop with the antics.

  • Evan Eremita

    Haley

  • Kevin Schwartz

    He’s a beast – and, what’s most amazing to me is he still produces when the rest of the offense is doing nothing. Nothing gets to him. Most likely indicative of mental toughness (yeah, I know he melts down, but I don’t really care about that).

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I won’t say the rest of the offense was doing nothing. JuJu I thought had a great game for a rookie and of course Bell.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I mean last week and, I think, the Bears game, not this week. This week a bunch of people played well, and, as I said earlier, this was the first week Bell looked fully back to me.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    I’ve been riding this train for over 40 years, I can be cranky when I want I guess.

    See…I’m happy. This is my happy face…….

    now i need some aspirin so i can thin my blood and not have a heart attack.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Ok, true!

  • NinjaMountie

    Do you ever have anything constructive to say? Anything positive? People might take you seriously if you appeared, even a little bit, to actually be a fan.

  • melblount

    Good grief, EVERYTHING changes in that game if they kick the FG.

    If nothing however did change, they would have only needed a FG at the end to tie.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I was watching Minnesota run some simple play-action plays earlier and I was getting so jealous. Run Bell a few times, then run play action – have Bell doing some sort of intermediate route, MB going deep, and Bell for the dump-off.

  • Iulo

    we all can argue about Haley, but honestly is a mixture of Haley-Ben…
    Ben has never been ok in red-zone. He had his years when he could scramble and had mobility but now its impossible. I remember some years were PIT scored only when they were at the yard 20 or 30, but every time they were already inside the 15 they scored only a FG

    I’m for using Watson/Bell in the redzone.. then of course pass to big guys like James, Bryant, Juju… But whatever they decide, they need to practice…

  • Jim Foles

    Lol. Empty sets are the bomb.

  • Jim Foles

    Converting 3rd downs would help more.

  • Jim Foles

    Haley is not missing a first down by one yard 5 times on the field.
