2017 Week 8 Steelers Vs Lions Live Update And Discussion Thread – Second Half

The Steelers enter the second half trailing the Lions 12-10 on the strength of four Matt Prater field goals, including two from deep. Pittsburgh settled for a field goal on their opening drive, but later scored from the five on a Le’Veon Bell run.

The big difference so far has been the turnover ratio. Ben Roethlisberger over threw Antonio Brown deep in triple coverage that was picked off by Glover Quinn, who later also recovered a Bell fumble at the 21-yard line, just outside of the red zone.

Before that first field goal, Roethlisberger was accurate on a ball to Eli Rogers in the end zone that should have been a touchdown.

Following a touchback a and a loss of one, the Lions gained six on the ground to set up third and five. Under pressure, Matthew Stafford’s pass fell incomplete, tipped by a Steeler, Tyson Alualu I think. The following punt was off the side of the punter’s foot, out of bounds before the 50.

Roethlisberger bounced a screen pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster, incomplete. Bell picked up six yards on second down. He went back to Smith-Schuster, breaking a tackle at the marker and then some for a big gain.

Darrius Heyward-Bey got free in the end zone, but Roethlisberger couldn’t connect with him, the ball slightly long, but perhaps a drop. I’ll have to look closer at it later. Bell picked up two yards to set up third and eight. Jesse James took a shot to the head, unnecessary roughness for a free first down.

Now from the 11, Bell off the left edge was able to fight his way for two yards. Roethlisberger and Brown connected in the end zone, but the play was wiped out by a pass interference on Brown, making it second and 18. He threw low for Brown on the following play, leading to third and 18. The Lions completely blew up a crossing route to Brown for no gain, sending him spiraling in the air. Chris Boswell’s field goal bounced off the crossbar, but in, to retake the lead, 13-12.

The Lions from the 22 after a return on the kickoff, Golden Tate caught a pass for 18 down the field, and Sean Davis was flagged for a personal foul on the initial hit, though I’m not sure I agree. From midfield, the Steelers stopped two runs short to set up third and 10. T.J. Watt’s spin move left the left side of the field free for an 11-yard scramble.

Another first-down gain up the ball at the 27. A back-shoulder to T.J. Jones for 23 set up first and goal inside the five. Dwayne Washington was short but down to the one on first and goal. Stafford under pressure threw an errant pass incomplete. On third and a foot, the front line stood firm, Javon Hargrave and Vince Williams on the hit to set up fourth and goal. Stafford tried to run for it late, but a late spin by Alualu put him in position to make the goal-line stop and force a turnover on downs.

From the two, Bell picked up three yards after the change of possession. After a six yard run, Roosevelt Nix was called for a hold, wiping it out and making it second and long. Roethlisberger overthrew a wide open James for what should have been an easy conversion. Now third and nine, Roethlisberger hit Smith-Schuster in stride, who outran three trailing defenders for a 98-yard touchdown.

After taking a 20-12 lead, the Lions worked to get their way back into scoring position, picking up about 15 yards in two plays. Abdullah bounced off some contact for a seven-yarder to midfield. On second and three, Riddick ran away from Shazier for a 23-yarder into scoring position.

Another six-yarder on the ground, Tate set up first and goal at the five. With nowhere to throw, Stafford had to throw incomplete. The second-down run got down to the two, and the defense swarmed to stop them on third down, Williams and Davis. Prater did add his fifth field goal, making it 20-15.

After quickly getting into a third and seven, Smith-Schuster straight up dropped the ball for what would have been a conversion. And that’s the way the rookie bumbles.

Jordan Berry got good distance on his punt to the 20, returned to the 29.

After a nine-yard pass, Abdullah got to the outside for a couple yards and a new set of downs. Davis stopped the screen pass for a loss. On second and 11, Stafford found Tate down the field, but he fumbled on his own and Burns recovered it.

Taking over at the 24, Bell squeezed through a crack for eight. On second and two, Ziggy Ansah was able to chase him down from behind for a loss of three. Smith-Schuster didn’t drop this one, however, for another third-down conversion. After two yards on the ground for Bell, Alejandro Villanueva was flagged for a false start, which made it second and 13. The Lions were on Bell right away for a loss of two. Now third and 15, with Chris Hubbard coming out injured and Matt Feiler in, Roethlisberger checked down to Bell for just three. The quarterback took a hit that wasn’t flagged after the throw.

Heyward-Bey did a great job of forcing a deep fair catch.

Watt was in coverage over the middle, getting a hand on the pass for an incompletion. Jones broke a tackle on Hilton and Watt, getting around to Burns, making the tackle. Third and three, Eric Ebron converted on third down to the 36. Haden intercepted the pass, but the Lions had a free play because of too many men on the field, and offside. On first and five from the 41, a screen to Abdullah picked up four. The secondary let Ebron run free, getting past Davis to set up first and 10 at the 11 for 44 yards.

Stafford looking for Jones threw incomplete on first down. A catch to Tate over the middle went for five. The defense blew up the run for a short loss, setting up fourth and sseven from the eight at the two-minute warning. The Lions have all three timeouts. The defense got pressure and forced a bad throw, Shazier nearly intercepting to force a second turnover on downs.

Bell up the middle for a few forced the Lions to use their first timeout. Roethlisberger threw incomplete, an evident miscommunication to Brown, giving the Lions a free timeout they don’t have to use. On third and six, Roethlisberger looked for Eli Rogers, who drew a pass interference call against Darius Slay. Good call.

Bell went for about six off the left side, the Lions using their second timeout. Bell added another three to set up third and one, the Lions using their final timeout. Smith-Schuster got the shovel pass for about four or five for the first down. That sealed the win, and the Steelers were able to take a couple of knees to secure their sixth victory of the season, keeping pace for the best record in the division.

  • JohnB

    I know this has been asked before but does Haley or Ben know what an intermediate route is?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I dont know. But wish our receivers got open like theirs

  • melblount

    Pretty sure not.

  • Doug Andrews

    I think they do Ben just doesn’t look for them

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The team with the better adjustments will win it.

  • JohnB

    most of our plays have been predictable so that doesn’t help. But hey we fooled them with that screen, fellas!

  • Doug Andrews

    I hope we go back to running LB. This run and shoot offense is frustrating

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    have not seen it tonight

  • Grant Humphrey

    Offense needs to wake up they looked like they did at the end of the first half hopefully they keep the momentum going into the 2nd half

  • NinjaMountie

    27-25 Steelers win.

  • #7

    Many of our fans are terrible. That is all.

  • Dorian James

    This is the Steelers offense.

  • Mister Wirez

    OK men. Time to take over this game.

  • JohnB

    so are our towels

  • NinjaMountie

    We would be unstoppable if we had cheerleaders.

  • #7

    Lol awesome

  • Mister Wirez

    Ben stares down AB too much too.

  • Jay Clam

    Kershaw crumbling lol

  • Robert Builder

    wait… what?!
    LOL

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo still needs his pick 6; AB his punt return TD & Eli biking on JuJu ‘s wheels to celebrate his TD this half.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Why do ppl want to trade for Ebron? He’s been pretty average, imo.

  • Dorian James

    Good luck in this second half guys pretty good game so far

  • NinjaMountie

    I can’t wait to watch my favorite CB TJ Watt play!!!

  • #7

    Ben’s fault. Should’ve never taken that pic with him

  • Grant Humphrey

    Not a good blocker either

  • Applebite

    Not unless it’s going to the TE…..which is rare enough these days.

  • Jeff McNeill

    I wonder if all the people here, especially the overly critical, do you actually enjoy football?

  • NinjaMountie

    Halftime…time to say silly things. Though I believe this one!

  • Tobi Ge

    every time they drop into that ‘fancy’ zone we know that stafford is throwing to the sideline! now mitchell is gonna cheat over there and they gonna score on a TD up the seam

  • JohnB

    hopefully its a short pick six…we may need Harrison for later games.

  • Jay Clam

    No, it causes me stress and drives me to drink bleach when we lose

  • Daniel Moon

    Put Deebo, Bud Dupree isn’t doing anything.

  • Robert Builder

    grab a beer and settle in.. it’s setting up to be a barn burner

  • Taylor Williams

    I enjoy seeing my team win

  • Jason

    the Eli drop is going to be remembered like Bryant drop vs Chicago, could of put to opponent behind the ball, but did not

  • Daniel Moon

    Yeah man everything is just down the field or LaVeon running.

  • NinjaMountie

    I’ll bet that’s their defensive scheme name for it. Fancy Zone, Fancy Zone!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    because they’re all designed for brown or bell and if I was a defensive coordinator I’ll be licking my chops playing against us just read the plays by down and distance that’s probably how bellicheck keeps having our number

  • Taylor Williams

    I remember we wanted him in the draft awhile back

  • NinjaMountie

    Will TJ Watt finish with more passes defensed or sacks? Next Friday Night question

  • Daniel Moon

    That drop was just devastating.

  • Tobi Ge

    PDs

  • NinjaMountie

    It truly was.

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to drop cover 2 zone.

  • Jeffrey Haynes

    It’s cool. On offense, we figured them out but then Bell fumbled. On defense, they have only been able to gain yards on misdirection etc. We have their number.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bell”s fumble worse than Eli’s non catch.

  • NinjaMountie

    both were rough on me

  • Troy

    So does defence. Offence is mental mistakes.
    But defence letting up way too many yards

  • Dorian James

    Yes that was going to be points, just as bad

  • Taylor Williams

    Eli’s catch would’ve been a TD

  • Daniel Moon

    We miss Bryant. Oh well.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    and empty sets on offense

  • PaeperCup

    Let’s go steelers

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah…that’s what it is

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell with 2 receiving yards is a travesty.

  • Tobi Ge

    TBH i would just feed him.. i’d bet he will catch every throw from now on
    and bryant hasn’t been very reliable aswell

  • Chad Sanborn

    we?

  • pittfan

    haleys fault

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    yes but we got 3; Bells fumble was a 6 point swing

  • Taylor Williams

    Malik with the epic hold

  • Darth Blount 47

    I agree. Even if it just to steal coverage.

  • alevin16

    All those Mihalik highlights were holding

  • Mister Wirez

    How about a 3 and out for once boys.

  • Chad Sanborn

    how many rushes/yards?

  • 6 ring circus

    As I said in response to another poster – who cares about Detroit and the NFC. We better worry about AFC superiority. We don’t want to have to go through Foxboro for any playoff wins…Thi s is so much practice here. We’re not even close to full strength…

  • NinjaMountie

    Most lol

  • Milton Farfara

    Don’t know if any whining has happened so before it does I’ll get it out of the way. Fire Haley, butler, smith, Tomlin, lake, porter and all the support staff.

  • Dee Evolution

    We need to see more Rosie Nix.

  • Chad Sanborn

    you got it

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Nice tip fellas

  • Daniel Moon

    Put Deebo on Mihalik. Deebo will school the kid all night.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I like this defense!

  • #7

    Why? He’s not helping at the moment

  • Milton Farfara

    Definately pds

  • Darth Blount 47

    13 carries, 41 yards and a TD.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

  • Chad Sanborn

  • Tobi Ge

  • francesco

    I’m going out on a limb and say we win this game.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    ohhhh…nice break for us

  • Ichabod

    Time to go Ben!!!!!

  • WreckIess

    Do not f*** this up.

  • Chad Sanborn

  • capehouse

    Can’t believe they’re not putting Deebo out there, but 3rd down D is undefeated tonight.

  • Darth Blount 47

  • Chad Weiss

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Bad bad sign if we don’t take advantage here.

  • #7

  • PaeperCup

    Well there will be a long bomb, but probabaly out of bounds

  • Daniel Moon

    That dude tried to angle his punt away from Brown and he shanked big time.

  • capehouse

    Giving Justin Hunter a lot of opportunity tonight. Be nice to see him make an explosive play.

  • Robert Builder

    Opportunity knocks

  • Buccos9

    Nice pressure up the middle on that punt.

  • Chad Sanborn

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    JuJu on the Beat!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Good JUJU!

  • Daniel Moon

    Pouncer’s snap has been low tonight. Gonna hurt Ben’s back tomorrow.

  • JohnB

    Bombs or dump offs…

  • Darth Blount 47

    JJSS is a tough bring down. I like that.

  • Jay Clam

    JuJu actually is > Bryant

  • PaeperCup

    Hines Smith schuster

  • Shannon Stephenson

    When JuJu puts on more muscle he will be a load to take down.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    juju is a steeler thru and thru

  • Robert Builder

    rumbling JSS

  • capehouse

    Nice presence JuJu. Knew where everybody was.

  • Chad Sanborn

  • Jay Clam

    Red zone is in their heads and they’re not even in the red zone

  • Shannon Stephenson

  • Chad Sanborn

  • Robert Builder

  • jconeoone C

  • Chad Sanborn

    that DHB throw was bad

  • Taylor Williams

    Bad throw

  • Jay Clam

    Flag, good. That was a defenseless receiver

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Flag.

  • Jay Clam

    Hope Jesse is okay

  • Evan Eremita

    Where’s that #7 guy to chime in and defend Ben on overthrowing an easy touchdown

  • Shannon Stephenson

  • Darth Blount 47

    That’s a penalty.

  • Robert Builder

  • capehouse

    defenseless receiver?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Finally the correct call

  • Darth Blount 47

    Led with the crown.

  • PaeperCup

    Can’t do that

  • Mister Wirez

    Delayed handoff not so good on a fast D

  • gentry_gee

    Brutal throw by Ben.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Outlaw is 6’7″. High hit.

  • Daniel Moon

    Jesse will be hurting tomorrow.

  • PaeperCup

    Good hit, but can’t do that

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Should be kicked out of game

  • Ray Smith

    Did Mike Mitchell swap jereseys at halftime

  • Jay Clam

    Ben barking lol

  • Shannon Stephenson

    that was 15 yards but outlaw feels like the innocent victim

  • Jay Clam

    I’m just glad Jesse is okay

  • Steeldog22

    Yeah. That’s gotta sting.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    I thought he was ko’d

  • Buccos9

    All Ben had to do was put a little air under that pass to Heyward-Bey.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lol

  • Chad Sanborn

    Sounded like someone asked ben if he was sure about that call?

  • #7

    Breaking news: Guy makes mistake on football field. Oh the humanity!

  • gentry_gee

    I think Ben doesn’t have it anymore.

  • Michael Conrad

    Ben needs to retire for the good of the team

  • Daniel Moon

    Ben is not putting a zip on his ball. He is just lofting it.

  • Jay Clam

    “YOU SURE?!”

  • Robert Builder

    Gotta put up 7 here

  • Darth Blount 47

    Here comes Outlaw to catch his TD….

  • T-51b

    What makes you say that?

  • gentry_gee

    He almost got Jesse James killed.

  • Jay Clam

    AB!

  • Ichabod

    Remeber when our scoring woes were blamed on penalties

  • Jason

    he wasnt ducking, he wasnt going down, that was just a badly aimed hit

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    phantom call.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    The right call

  • Jay Clam

    Lol they were letting them play deep all game and NOW it’s pass interference

  • alevin16

    just kick a fg, this is painful

  • Daniel Moon

    Big Ben needs a Tommy John surgery.

  • gentry_gee

    Another one-hopper. Shoulder is noodling.

  • #7

    Ben’s fault AB pushed off

  • Ichabod

    I’m saying it… Ben is not a top QB

  • Mister Wirez

    Brown push off. Ticky tacky call

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    refs need to make up the call

  • Evan Eremita

    There he is! You know if it was one mistake, it would be different

  • PaeperCup

    Defender was holding too

  • capehouse

    Bell wide open. stared down AB again

  • Jay Clam

  • Jay Clam

  • francesco

    Never seen someone parachute so high!

  • Arthur Branch

    That’s the pass you throw on 2nd and 18..

  • melblount

    Just a miserable NFL team.

  • Ray Smith

    Steelers…have to make everything dramatic

  • Shannon Stephenson

    jeepers creepers

  • Jeff Papiernik

    He called bank

  • Chad Sanborn

    i feel like this team is cursed

  • alevin16

    whew

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to dominate. Come on.

  • Jaybird

    The lions ain’t so bad.😉

  • gentry_gee

    Best offense in the league. 30 points a game.

  • 6 ring circus

    Obvious…Not this year.

  • melblount

    It won’t be too bad when BB retires. He’s a shell of himself.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lmao…..I am not sure if there was ever a truer statement EVER.

  • NinjaMountie

    Ben keeps throwing TDs and they keep taking them away.

  • Steeldog22

    Three straight to Brown.

  • Applebite

    That EZ has a Hex on it….

  • #7

    Because they’re 5-2 and winning this game?

  • jconeoone C

    But they won’t see it coming!…. Oh wait

  • Darth Blount 47

    For those curious…. for the Friday Night Question: JuJu, Hunter, Hey-Bey, and Rogers have 86 yards.

  • Mister Wirez

    Wow.

  • PaeperCup

    3 this game

  • Daniel Moon

    Big Ben is just way off this year. Check his shoulder and call Dr. James Andrews.

  • Taylor Williams

    Ugly game. Lions are expecting everything.

  • Randy

    Ben is being awful in red zone

  • melblount

    How far open was DHB? 10 Yards?

  • 太阳三联

    How does this keep happening

  • Chad Sanborn

    No fire in the Offense tonight. Someone needs to smack them all in the face to wake them up!

  • #7

    I don’t think it’s the team that’s miserable

  • francesco

    Burfict has something to do with it I’m sure.

  • Evan Eremita

    3rd and 18, throw it 3 yards

  • Randy

    Every game is like this

  • Shannon Stephenson

    we are going down the field no problem.

  • Chad Sanborn

    well just 1. 2 were drops

  • gentry_gee

    Well Brown did push off. The other one in the 1st q should’ve been caught. Who was that? Rogers?

  • Daniel Moon

    MB is laughing his ass off.

  • Jaybird

    We are winning aren’t we????

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    should’ve had 3TDS

  • PaeperCup

    Yeah that opi was all on ben

  • ThatGuy

    Still stunned the refs let them play all game and then call OPI on a TD lol what a joke

  • alevin16

    Don’t bring us up with your logic and facts 😀

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Yep and same problem Ben has had all season. half a step to 1 step ahead of his receivers. Just no timing between any of them. Can’t blame them on DHB because DHB never gets to play. Hard to have timing that way.

  • Taylor Williams

    That throw to DHB was a bad one

  • pittfan

    hes sitting on the bench

  • Daniel Moon

    Big Ben has end zone anxiety syndrome.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Need to force a turnover ASAP!

  • #beatthepats

    2 turnovers and we have the lead – chill there tunovers are comin

  • gentry_gee

    Ben missed that by a mile.

  • Shannon Stephenson

  • Jeff McNeill

    No we’re down by 17 aren’t we?

  • will

    Ben having another poor game

  • WreckIess

    Best record in the AFC? Yup just miserable…

  • PaeperCup

    Very catchable

  • melblount

    That would be viable but what is cursing them?

    We’re simply NOT as good as anybody THINKS we are.

  • Daniel Moon

    Turnover Turnover Turnover.

  • Randy

    Sshh we are super bowl caliber team

  • Ray Smith

    Yes but only cause he took a trip downtown and scored the good stuff

  • NinjaMountie

    yes and AB’s push off is lame

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo pick 6. book it.

  • alevin16

    FIRE DANNY SMITH…oh wrong team

  • Ike Evans

    Defense to the rescue again

  • Daniel Moon

    He sucks at singing. My dog can sing better.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I quadruple that

  • Taylor Williams

    Mathew is too good

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Where’s the mute button?

  • Brian Miller

    Lol

  • Dee Evolution

    That would be Haley overcomplicating the matter.

  • Daniel Moon

    Put Deebo damn it.

  • Darth Blount 47

    THAT. WAS. HOLDING.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    add fifteen more

  • PaeperCup

    Flag …uhhhh no

  • gentry_gee

    What?!

  • Chad Sanborn

    that hurt

  • PaeperCup

    Bs!

  • T-51b

    They only put him in against Eric Fisher of the Chiefs.

  • Chad Sanborn

    both ducked their heads though… thats not a penalty

  • NinjaMountie

    whatever

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Theey both lower their heads?

  • Darth Blount 47

    A pure take-down by Mihalik the HOFamer

  • 6 ring circus

    I have no choice but to ride this horse…until it dies or finds the strength to find a full gallop…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    helmet to helmet..nothing for me to argue

  • Daniel Moon

    Take Dupree out and put Deebo.

  • Ray Smith

    I had no idea Collinsworth and Stafford were dating

  • #7

    “Ok” – Mike Tomlin

  • Daniel Moon

    Put some pressure.

  • Chad Sanborn

    engaged

  • Brian Miller

    Lol, nice

  • Taylor Williams

    Bud is faster Jarvis

  • alevin16

    Guest O call by Todd Haley

  • Daniel Moon

    If you pressure Stafford throws INTs.

  • gentry_gee

    I really miss Tuitt.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Abdullah saw Heyward just standing there and he gave himself up.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    their running game sucks big time

  • L Garou

    Lions are still playing hard.

  • EdJHJr

    Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • gentry_gee

    That’s what Ben used to do, run, make plays happen.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Mihalik is getting away with pure molestation.

  • Nunya

    I hate these helmet to helmet penalties on receivers who are running. They dip their heads into the defenswr’s tackles. What the hell is the defender supposed to do?

  • PaeperCup

    Holy holding batman

  • Arthur Branch

    You mean Watt he is making Mahalik look like an all pro.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    well run screen

  • Chad Sanborn

    only 3.. only 3 ,, only 3 pleasseeee

  • EdJHJr

    Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • 6 ring circus

    It’s like the flavor of the day (Sunday night)

  • Daniel Moon

    Their OC is calling good game. Haley is not.

  • Jay Clam

    Who’d have thought we didn’t actually have the top ranked pass defense in reality? LOL

  • Taylor Williams

    His career went down hill after that.

  • alevin16

    well it was a nice lead while it lasted

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    defense looks tired

  • francesco

    Liked Watts spin move.

  • gentry_gee

    There’s a lot of holding they’re not calling.

  • Jay Clam

    Wtf sack this dude, Jesus

  • Robert Builder

    I thought the Lions were missing key players and were 3-3?!

  • Jay Clam

    Goddamn

  • EdJHJr

    I’m watching a good offense

  • Ike Evans

    Damn that was nice

  • Chad Sanborn

    ugh i smell a TD

  • Jay Clam

    Tate’s playing and that’s all they care about

  • Michael Mosgrove

    we’re going to lose this one at this rate.

  • capehouse

    Geez even Collinsworth realizes Deebo should be playing.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Is Harrison dressed?

  • Daniel Moon

    Put Deebo. What the heck is Porter doing?

  • PaeperCup

    Stafford looks like Aaron Rodgers tonight

  • Michael Cunningham

    You can’t make mistakes against good football teams

  • Jaybird

    Moats in over Deebo.

  • Jay Clam

    Prolonging the inevitable

  • 6 ring circus

    Lasted? It was bad right out of the package.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    and they left harrison on bench. Now detroit does nt have to pass long. Steelers in jeppardy

  • Ike Evans

    Wonder why we don’t throw many back shoulder plays smh

  • Jay Clam

    They’re good every other week

  • EdJHJr

    19 13

  • GravityWon

    Making their O-line look good

  • Mister Wirez

    Harrison fresh as daisies

  • capehouse

    Put in McCullers

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Stafford is pretty good

  • Jay Clam

    They’ll go for 2

  • Ray Smith

    Deebo is out stealing JuJus bike that’s why he’s not in

  • #7

    Oh my god it’s like the other team gets paid too! What’s going on?

  • EdJHJr

    For now counting on 4 more turnovers

  • Evan Eremita

    So that’s what a good quarterback looks like

  • Jeff Papiernik

    I don’t care what the stats say, our secondary is overrated. We haven’t played any quality QBs until tonight, and when we finally do, they expose us.

  • PaeperCup

    Pick that off

  • Jay Clam

    Shaz has to make that pick

  • Shannon Stephenson

    looks like someone missed a pick there

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    this may be most important play of game

  • gentry_gee

    Again they’re holding!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    need an int

  • Chad Sanborn

    soooo much holding around stafford not called.

  • EdJHJr

    Don’t worry touchdown now

  • Brian Miller

    Well done…

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Should have been a sack there.

  • #7

    Me too. They used to do it all the time

  • Jay Clam

    STUFFED YES

  • Darth Blount 47

    Are you even serious?! Call me when Stafford has a SB ring.

  • Daniel Moon

    Recipe for beating Stafford is pressure.

  • gentry_gee

    They held 48!

  • PaeperCup

    That was nice

  • Robert Builder

    Stafford looked like Teke with that throwing motion

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Hargrave is an absolute BEAST

  • 6 ring circus

    Well, nice practice session, now, we got two weeks to go back to the practice drawing board and a few weeks to get ready for Brainiak and the ageless one…

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Im tired of steelers sucking on hind teat

  • Darth Blount 47

    Whoever smelled a TD should get checked for a stroke.

  • Jay Clam

    Mitch went out with an ankle?

  • Nunya

    Nice stand, burn I HATE it when we do this. All week, we hear that the D line should destroy the pass protection of the lions and get to
    the QB. And par for the course, we underperform. It’s clockwork for these teams the last 5 years.

  • Taylor Williams

    Lol this bend don’t break defense is killing me.

  • #7

    Oh my god another team didn’t score a TD in the red zone. What’s going on?

  • Brian Miller

    Really don’t understand why we can’t get more pressure against their o line.

  • Daniel Moon

    Dupree isn’t doing anything. He reminds me of Jarvis Jones.

  • EdJHJr

    I’m shocked they need to go for it.

  • alevin16

    and we turn their o line backups into pro bowlers

  • Zarbor

    People may not want to make this a big deal but its a big one when you are the QB. If you watch Ben, his body language speaks more than anything he says. I remember the Ben from back in the days, this guys looks like he’s not into it and can’t get this offense up. Where is the passion? Where is the fire? He is the veteran and has to will this team, this offense to play better……I don’t see it. Just seems like he running plays.

  • Nunya

    Because we were supposed to dominate that line…

  • Jay Clam

    Isn’t he tied for the team lead in sacks? LOL

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Burt Lauten: S Mike Mitchell is questionable to return to tonight’s game with a right ankle injury.

  • Evan Eremita

    They probably would be getting to him if the holding wasn’t so blatant and not called

  • gentry_gee

    They’re HOLDING!

  • Taylor Williams

    He’s just a faster version of JJ.

  • EdJHJr

    Why then the offense gets the ball

  • Jay Clam

    Yikes

  • capehouse

    yeah and Golson over Wilcox

  • Daniel Moon

    Big Ben’s play has regressed this year.

  • Ike Evans

    Can’t beat his man 1 on 1 without a stunt or the qb holding the ball

  • Brian Miller

    Lol

  • Jay Clam

    Hot take

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    he does get a deer in the headlights look for bad games

  • Chad Sanborn

    This! so much holding

  • Milton Farfara

    Up until now we’re having problems giving up alot of tds. Probably would have problems limiting Swifty – my 3 legged turtle if he was in a lion’s jersey.

  • Brian Miller

    True

  • Taylor Williams

    NOOO you think?

  • Ray Smith

    agreed my wife who
    knows nothing of football said he looks annoyed when he has to go out on the field

  • 太阳三联

    They’re holding like crazy .. it’s skewed

  • gentry_gee

    He was never an intense competitor like Brady, but his body language is quite telling. He does not look into it at all.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    ???

  • EdJHJr

    Yup. Can we trade bell and Brown for a qb

  • SilverSteel

    Is Harrison playing?

  • Daniel Moon

    Great stop.

  • Jay Clam

    Yes!!

  • PaeperCup

    Huge

  • Shannon Stephenson

    great defensive stand

  • Darth Blount 47

    AHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH

  • gentry_gee

    Incredible defensive stand.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    There’s your goal line Defense! 😘

  • Rob

    what kind of call is that? tomlin isn’t even that crazy

  • francesco

    Fantastic stop.

  • PaeperCup

    And here comes a three and out

  • Daniel Moon

    Alu deserved his paycheck for the year.

  • Aj Gentile

    Was that Bud with pressure?

  • EdJHJr

    Can hines still play qb

  • Michael Conrad

    I agree he has last his passion.

  • Chad Sanborn

    wow really bad idea not to take the 3pts

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Alualu is not Cam Thomas

  • Stevie D

    Need draft QB and get new OC

    ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • #beatthepats

    His recievers are covered every play and when not they dropped it

  • Mister Wirez

    Wow. Nice

  • Robert Builder

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    that’s gonna cost them make them pay

  • Jay Clam

    Barry!!

  • Taylor Williams

    That was dumb lol

  • renoir

    everyone seems to think we are soft and we arent at all….

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    run bell 3 times for a first down

  • Shannon Stephenson

    i hope so

  • Daniel Moon

    That was a stupid decision by Caldwell.

  • Zarbor

    Never? You obvious must not know the younger Ben

  • Mister Wirez

    Always take thr points Detroit.

  • pittfan

    llove barry sanders

  • Jay Clam

    Ugh

  • Shannon Stephenson

  • Chad Sanborn

    Why does this ref seem like hes surprised by each call he makes?

  • Taylor Williams

    Darn you nix

  • PaeperCup

    Son of a nutcracker

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    They can hold we cant

  • Jay Clam

    3rd year guy lol

  • Brian Miller

    So they won’t call holding on the lions but……

  • alevin16

    they are at home

  • Ray Smith

    You know your a crap franchise when you force 2 amazing players in their prime to retire

  • Jay Clam

    BEN OMG MAKE A THROW

  • Chad Sanborn

    another bad throw… Ben Ben Ben…

  • Nunya

    I don’t usually bitch about officiating but how the hell do they call holding on our O line when they mug us every play..

  • Daniel Moon

    Come on Ben. He is way off when he is off.

  • Taylor Williams

    Ben is done.

  • Aj Gentile

    O line can hold, just not full back

  • Shannon Stephenson

    A wide open guy

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Ben…Ben…Ben…

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    over throw

  • Zarbor

    I’m sure that receiver was covered…LOL

  • gentry_gee

    I could make that throw.

  • Michael Cunningham

    We have the most talent but we always beat ourselves .. Ben wtf

  • Clutterbox

    ugh. another missed wide open receiver.

  • PaeperCup

    Yak tsk

  • #7

    Put in Nix!

  • Brian Miller

    Good Lord he sucks

  • Jay Clam

    Maybe Ben should start practicing on Wednesdays.

  • pittfan

    that did suck

  • EdJHJr

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • francesco

    He is not bending his knees.

  • alevin16

  • Ray Smith

  • #7

    LOL “Ben sucks”

  • Jay Clam

    LOL JUJU on that beat

  • L Garou

    As a single tear runs down Bryant’s cheek..

  • Brian Miller

    Doesn’t change the fact that he has been playing like crap dude…

  • PaeperCup

    Bryant is better 😀

  • michael young

    Yo Martavis, did you see that?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Martavis just yelled out a bad word

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    yeah he may be better than Bryant

  • Taylor Williams

    Well he’s not slow.

  • EdJHJr

    Finds a nut

  • Daniel Moon

    Give JuJu oxygen tank.

  • Aj Gentile

    Lions could have had the lead

  • T-51b

    Better at being a jack ass

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I know he tired! By the way that’s 4.

  • 6 ring circus

    cold, but true

  • alevin16

    Gave me multiple heart attacks every time he looked back, I figured they would catch him

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Me neither…I thought ok when are they going to catch him……still waiting…..

  • Evan Eremita

    Bens an idiot but thankfully Ben had one good throw in him tonight!!!

  • Jeff McNeill

    You my friend have a marvelous sense of humor.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    i dunno that ball that hit the ground was pretty bad.

  • NinjaMountie

    Ben sucks and we’re missing Bryant!

  • will

    Amen to that

  • melblount

    MB just tweeted: “I coulda dun at.”

  • Mister Wirez

    JuJu! > Bryant

  • #7

    Go away

  • renoir

    gonna come out MB was behind the missing bike…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Fire Danny Smith

  • EdJHJr

    Wait he missed brown in quad coversge

  • Ike Evans

    Wait no celebration?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    JuJu’s celebration should be to autograph that ball and give it to Bryant. Would love him FOREVER.

  • Daniel Moon

    I remember some draft experts saying that JuJu is not fast enough.

  • Brian Miller

    Juju doesn’t need a bike or a car…just run baby run!!

  • melblount

    Hmmm…maybe not.

  • Robert Builder

    can I relax yet?!

  • Zarbor

    LOL

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    well he did have some good JuJU on that play.

  • 6 ring circus

    Brunettes and Redheads, too!

  • will

    Much better than gray!

  • Nathanael Dory

    JUJUUUU!!!!

  • Jeff Papiernik

    You guys can continue to minimize Bryant. We will not win a SB without him.

  • 太阳三联

    Holy fuxk

  • Steve Johnson

    Great!

  • Michael Cunningham

    outran 3 DB’s lol

  • Ray Smith

    MB has that same look right now that Obiwan did when he felt Alderaan being destroyed

  • Evan Eremita

    Ha!

  • #7

    No I don’t HE’S the idiot…

  • EdJHJr

    I dont hate him, he is just a c minus guy

  • will

    Ben is having a very poor game

  • gentry_gee

    Ju Ju will be Hines 2.0.

  • gentry_gee

    And good recovery throw by Ben.

  • gentry_gee

    Well he’s 1 for 2 on wide open receivers up the middle.

  • Daniel Moon

    No one could catch JuJu. Wow.

  • Agustin-ARG

    that´s my quarterback!!

  • pittfan

    cant believe they called that stupid play…sheesh

  • 6 ring circus

    You know…Tay-Tay…

  • Dee Evolution

    JESUS CHRIST!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    this is the Steelers remember…it will be close to the end if the Steelers have anything to say about it.

  • ayub

    Lol

  • Nunya

    And 50 people had to change their post about Ben midway through typing!…lmao

  • PaeperCup

    Was there a celebration or was his team too far away

  • Nathanael Dory

    Just got in the game. First play I saw is a sack. And now this!!!! JUJUUUU!!!!

  • Ray Smith

    hhahaha

  • Taylor Williams

    Is that why he only has 1 TD

  • Daniel Moon

    Play like we are the best team in NFL. Dominate.

  • ThatGuy

    I didn’t know JuJu was that fast, damn!

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    there you go

  • Vic

    I agree martavis, we’ll keep ju ju

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben sucks.

  • 6 ring circus

    +10

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Too soon.

  • #7

    I don’t think he cares. Rogers is done

  • Steve Johnson

    I might have to go out buy this kids Jersey.

  • alevin16

    MB being Wally Pipped

  • Milton Farfara

    I can Bryant sweating like he’s just finished practice in 100 degree heat after that juju TD.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben 14/25 completions 297 yards 11.9 yards per 1 td 1 int

    not exactly stellar.

  • Dee Evolution

    I don’t even like that song, but I had to dance.

  • jconeoone C

    Dank

  • ThatGuy

    JuJu unleashed the burners!!!!

  • francesco

    Isn”t Hunter replacing Bryant? Where is Hunter?

  • Steve Johnson

    It’s about Damm time!

  • Daniel Moon

    Now defense come to life.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    And notice our offense is as inconsistent as they come

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Hopefully they dont charge by the character

  • Jaybird

    JuJu on the beat!!!!!!

  • Mister Wirez

    Yep! Haha.

  • #7

    Sure

  • Shannon Stephenson

    but we are ahead

  • GravityWon

    Way to hang in there Ben

  • Brian Miller

    Imagine if he had completed the 5 missed opportunities…

  • PaeperCup

    Just joshin. They are both incredible

  • T-51b

    That’s in a dome. Can’t blame the weather

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Hunter isn’t even on the same level of talent as Martavis

  • Michael Mosgrove

    or if freaking eli and hey bey could catch the ball tonight.

  • Daniel Moon

    JuJu looked back about 10 times.

  • Evan Eremita

    Exactly

  • Jaybird

    I got one for my daughter.

  • Robert Builder

    was gassed at the end but had the juice to run the field!

  • NYBurgh79

    Man! I was thinking about going to bed but i am going stay up for this one .

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    A turnover would be dope.

  • Jaybird

    JuJu is faster than I thought.

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to pressure Stafford then he melts down.

  • alevin16

    Come on D don’t give it right back

  • Michael Mosgrove

    deebo still sitting on the bench. its absurd.

  • Sdale

    Can someone help me out here? I left the bar when the Lions were on like the 20 looking like they were going in for a score…I get home and Ben just threw a bob to JuJu. Did we get a pick?

  • Taylor Williams

    Watt getting held the entire game

  • 6 ring circus

    Hard

  • Robert Builder

    couldn’t believe he had a step on them

  • gentry_gee

    They’re being held for sure.

  • Mister Wirez

    Caldwell wishing he’d kicked the FG.

  • Clutterbox

    Run defense sucks.

  • SilverSteel

    Watt is dinged up too. Hmm

  • pittfan

    SANDERS IS A GOAT

  • capehouse

    Golden, sorry

  • gentry_gee

    Bad time for D meltdown

  • Daniel Moon

    Take Dupree out. He is not doing anything.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Don’t give up now!!!

  • Aj Gentile

    Then went for it on 4th and didn’t make it

  • 6 ring circus

    Gassed…

  • Michael Mosgrove

    what was dupree doing there?

  • gentry_gee

    He’s getting held!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Glad I took the OVER on question 5! Lol!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    This would be a good drive for a turnover

  • Daniel Moon

    Why is Moats in instead of Deebo.

  • Jaybird

    Goal line stand at the one yard line.

  • L Garou

    Why stick with the losing pass coverage?

  • Robert Builder

    me thinks the Lions OC is calling a better game..

  • Sdale

    Thanks guys.

  • PaeperCup

    Shazier looks off today

  • EdJHJr

    Boooooooooo[oooooo

  • Taylor Williams

    Where the heck is Harrison???????!!!!

  • gentry_gee

    Barry Sanders one of the greatest backs of all-time. He was incredible.

  • Aj Gentile

    I got you

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    sitting on the bench

  • Chad Sanborn

    keeping the bench warm for now reason

  • Daniel Moon

    Any OC is calling better than Haley.

  • Mister Wirez

    The back is killing us.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, defense just looks soft.

  • Nunya

    I don’t like how their average offensive line is pushing us backwards now.

  • Brian Miller

    Did it for years with Lebeaux, why change now…

  • Aj Gentile

    Defense is looking like penn state

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I mean…..I like Moats but how is he in over Harrison.

  • Chad Sanborn

    sheer force of will and they are good at mixing up run/pass/playaction

  • pittfan

    +100. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WATCHING HIM. HE WAS A GAME BREAKER

  • DarthYinzer

    Lions just shredding us this drive.

  • PaeperCup

    The greatest

  • #7

    Where’s Harrison? Where’s Nix? Throw it to Heath!

  • Mister Wirez

    Me thinks you right

  • Clutterbox

    It’s Chick playing over Deebo (ROLB).
    Deebo should be playing.

  • Daniel Moon

    I thought Moats was our ST ace.

  • Tedium cha

    Why is Arthur moats in the game?? Seriously! He’s not better than anyone!

  • Robert Builder

    Haley has got to change things up- we’re too predictable

  • gentry_gee

    Bell is very much like Barry in being so unique.

  • Nunya

    Haley has called a nice game today. 2 easy touchdowns botched by a receiver and then a QB.

  • capehouse

    OLBs are underwhelming tonight. All 4. Please put in Deebo.

  • Taylor Williams

    They just came off a buy too

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    what’s funny is they running like they got the lead and a running game

  • Michael Cunningham

    D just relaxin’ ..

  • EdJHJr

    Booooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Jaybird

    Moats?????

  • Steeldog22

    It’s like when everyone said Jerry Rice wasn’t that fast, but you never saw anybody catch him.

  • Nunya

    Defense in shock offense scored a TD

  • gentry_gee

    But poor Barry had to play for one of the worst franchises if all time.

  • Buccos9

    Stafford is getting too much time. He is looking a little Bradyish pucking apart the zone coverage.

  • Daniel Moon

    Night and day compared to last week’s defense.

  • Brian Miller

    Good one!

  • #7

    Put in Krieder

  • gentry_gee

    I’m telling you they’re holding like crazy.

  • Michael Cunningham

    put in James dammit ..

  • L Garou

    Same for Walter.

  • Ray Smith

    stealing your bike

  • JNick

    3 missed end zone chances aren’t on him. If the team executed Wed be up by 18 at this point

  • T-51b

    Difference is that Andy Dalton is a fraud.

  • 太阳三联

    Stafford is good. Pretty underrated

  • Reezy

    Yes, but no Razorback sighting

  • PaeperCup

    How can you rush 3 but have someone so open

  • pittfan

    tate is slick

  • Sdale

    Although, it’s hard to blame the OC on a dropped pass in the EZ and a terrible throw to a wide open receiver in the end zone. That’s 8 points left on the table.

  • alevin16

    It is good we rush 3 so that our 8 can not cover

  • Daniel Moon

    Defense sucks tonight

  • Shannon Stephenson

    every time they do it at that

  • #7

    They have 12 points

  • Arthur Branch

    Why is Butler playing so much zone?

  • Taylor Williams

    I hate this bend don’t break defense

  • Sdale

    Especially in that area of the field.

  • Milton Farfara

    What has happened to our top ranked D tonight?

  • capehouse

    Heady play by Dupree

  • Clutterbox

    Nice play by Bud there to take out the rb.

  • Steeldog22

    Nice play by Dupree for once.

  • Michael Cunningham

    run here

  • Reezy

    The zone is getting shredded

  • Robert Builder

    they’re killing our zone and Stafford is making the throws…does not bode well

  • Ray Smith

    Detroit hates Ebron more than they do the Steelers

  • Icancoach

    Looks like they are running NE plays.

  • Mister Wirez

    Golden Taint is good at football.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Artie Burns doesn’t even attempt to tackle…come on!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Put Juju in for a 98 yard pick 6

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hargrave commanding double-teams.

  • Jay Clam

    Another huge stop, pls

  • Reezy

    Playing a real QB

  • Jay Clam

    STUFFED AGAIN LOL

  • Aj Gentile

    One tell yells heath the other team boos

  • Jay Clam

    Take the points, Caldwell. Don’t be dumb.

  • Daniel Moon

    Shazier is not having a good game.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Great hold

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    4th down can they do it?

  • Mister Wirez

    Dupree doesn’t do Linebacker well

  • Chad Sanborn

    Yessssss! held to 3pts

  • Brian Miller

    Look, he’s not Haley…

  • capehouse

    wow can’t believe the 3-4 stood up there

  • gentry_gee

    Steelers were high on him. I remember hoping they would draft him.

  • Jaybird

    Dupree has no pass rush . At all

  • will

    Golden Tate cause of Russell Wilson divorce.

  • Sdale

    Davis

  • Brian Miller

    Nope.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Thumper gonna thump.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Davis ssacrified his bddy

  • Jay Clam

    Yep. He sucks while tied for the team lead in sacks.

  • Clutterbox

    bad snap. nice hold there

  • Daniel Moon

    Defense didn’t break. Nice stand. Now Offense needs to deliver.

  • Ray Smith

    Darth Prater strikes again

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Davis is getting more and more exciting to watch…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    getting burned underneath on a lot of throws too.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    been saying it for a long time him and shazier rely too much on speed and not form.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    VW is a goal line monster.

  • Aj Gentile

    I’ve seen him get some pressure

  • alevin16

    After that crappy D series a 3 is terrific

  • I4giveSteelers

    well on a positive note….are red zone D is better

  • Jaybird

    Hustle sacks.

  • Robert Builder

    reminds me of the Pats.. all these guys in blue running free against our secondary. Only diff is they’re aren’t scoring 7’s..

  • Michael Mosgrove

    cam has most.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    A touchdown here makes it tough for the Lions

  • Jay Clam

    A sack is a sack

  • Chad Sanborn

    We need another scoring drive to knock that 3pts off.

  • ThatGuy

    We need to match their FGs with TDs separate this game a bit

  • Jay Clam

    As of tonight, right?

  • will

    Need Deebo

  • gentry_gee

    Time to get the run game going.

  • Brian Miller

    Than our red zone offense??

  • L Garou

    d has been tough at the goal line that’s for sure.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    yes

  • Nunya

    I can’t decide if the D is playing well or not…lol

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    JuJu Smith-Schuster reached a max speed of 20.64 MPH on that 97-yard TD.

  • JNick

    Another TD may do the Lions in.

  • #7

    Throw it to Heath Nix!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Haley is calling their RZ plays tonight as well

  • gentry_gee

    Is that Ben’s longest TD ever?

  • Buccos9

    The D has bent, but not broken. Two great stands inside the five yard line.

  • Steve Johnson

    Night and Day between Strafford and Andy Dalton.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    depends on whether steelers win

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Exactly…the Lions going up and down the field but no TD’s

  • EdJHJr

    Can we trade bell Ben and Brown for a QB. Bryant will be the star

  • Taylor Williams

    Say what you want but this defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown.
    They only move the ball against us because everyone plays 20 yards off.

  • Nunya

    It will be interesting to see if that one play gets Ben’s mind straight.

  • pittfan

    he hopped on his bike at the 50 yrdline

  • will

    Pass defense exposed

  • Michael Cunningham

    Bell needs to get his mojo on right now …

  • Darth Blount 47

    Le’Veon Bell still has 2 receiving yards. And yes… STILL a travesty.

  • Greg Payne

    The offense and defense are splitting up the field tonight. Offense is taking responsibility for everything between the 20’s. Defense is only playing in the red zones.

  • Michael Conrad

    First real QB the D faced is eating them up. MS may get 400 yards passing.

  • I4giveSteelers

    Detroit is playing well, Detroit blocking prepared for us and Stafford is very accurate

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to have a nice drive.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Watson TD KR! book it.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    id rather ben get his mojo on. we havent seen too many explosive plays by ben this year that werent interceptions.

  • Chad Sanborn

    thats ok if they lose

  • Jason

    I wish they would cut to Bryant, I’d like to see his reaction on the long play

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    aww. he kicked it too far

  • gentry_gee

    I think we know where this D is at.

  • JNick

    No. They are moving the ball well because their skilled, speedy WRs are causing our DBs fits

  • Mister Wirez

    I think he had a 98 or 99 against the Ravens or Bungles a few years ago

  • Daniel Moon

    MB will be ok after bye week. He is too talented.

  • Aj Gentile

    I feel like ben had a 99 yard to Wallace against Arizona

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    our goal line defense is the lions taxidermist

  • alevin16

    play action

  • Nunya

    Trade him for something if they get rid of him

  • Shannon Stephenson

    hope so

  • #7

    Run Franco behind Heath, Krieder and Nix

  • alevin16

    stop with the 5 wide

  • Clutterbox

    Why Nix line up as a wideout?!

  • Brian Miller

    Anddddddddd, the old Ben is back!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    just throw it at the defenser next time

  • Robert Builder

    damn I hate the ’empty’ set

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    He was trying thr longest yard play to the jollies but missed

  • Shannon Stephenson

    oh boy

  • Greg Payne

    The killer B’s haven’t really ever showed up. How about the Ju Ju Bees?

  • PaeperCup

    You suck juju

  • gentry_gee

    Oh JU JU. BAD JU JU. BAD.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bad JUJU

  • Jeff McNeill

    Need a seven minute td drive.

  • Daniel Moon

    come on concentrate

  • Jeff Papiernik

    MB wouldn’t have dropped that, js

  • Darth Blount 47

    That was some bad JuJu.

  • francesco

    OMG JuJu dropped one!

  • Chad Sanborn

    that hurts. worst punter in the league… wow. ok

  • PaeperCup

    Turnover

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Not the bunny.

  • Nunya

    Geez…and then that happens.

  • Daniel Moon

    Berry is sub par this year.

  • Robert Builder

    3 broken tackles

  • will

    We want MB

  • NinjaMountie

    That was bad JuJu

  • Shannon Stephenson

    why do we have terrible punt coverage and then kick it to one of the most dnagerous guys in the game…just plain stupid

  • Brian Miller

    Crap, that’s not any better than Bryant!!

  • Jay Clam

    Man, 97 yard TD then a possession down drop lol

  • Taylor Williams

    Ooh great the D may be gassed

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo pick 6 PLEASE

  • Daniel Moon

    stop playing soft d.

  • pittfan

    lets get some sack action going here

  • Jay Clam

    Has he even seen the field?

  • Chad Sanborn

    rushing 3 again? why why why

  • PaeperCup

    Rush 3 let 5 wide open

  • Sdale

    Holy cow, Burns used his hands to tackle.

  • Michael Cunningham

    Time for a TO ..

  • Clutterbox

    I doubt that since they refuse to play him.

  • Nunya

    STOP RUSHING 3!!!! IT NEVER TURNS OUT WELL!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I dont think so but he just needs 1 play

  • #7

    Put in Harrison and Ham and Merriweather.

  • Darth Blount 47

    We have GOT to plant our feet and start jumping these routes to the outside.

  • Mister Wirez

    D needs a pick or fumble recovery.

  • 6 ring circus

    I prefer Glen Edwards…He did it angrily…with malice, lol

  • Daniel Moon

    where the heck is pressure

  • Taylor Williams

    Rush 5.

  • DoctorNoah

    Why was clock still running after Burns pushed him OOB?

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Bryant had his fingers crossed eyes closed praying please don’t catch it please don’t catch it ! and jinxed juju lol pun intended

  • PaeperCup

    Pressure please

  • Robert Builder

    be a good time for a take away

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Haley’s calling their plays

  • Nunya

    Nice tackle

  • L Garou

    Stafford will have 400 yards passing!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    does not stop till five minutes left.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Davis! Nice play!

  • Daniel Moon

    come on d.

  • Michael Cunningham

    Deebo where are you .. ???

  • Sdale

    Davis is having a game.

  • alevin16

    I’d like to see Hilton blitz

  • Taylor Williams

    Rush 5

  • Chad Sanborn

    2 turnovers in the red zone taken away points we needed.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    whew

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Fumble!

  • Darth Blount 47

    FUMBLE

  • Daniel Moon

    turnover!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • gentry_gee

    PHEW!

  • PaeperCup

    Wow we are sooooo lucky

  • Shannon Stephenson

    fumble please no thanx to the defense.

  • Chad Sanborn

    whew

  • Daniel Moon

    dude just dropped it.

  • NinjaMountie

    that was literally a give-a-way

  • gentry_gee

    That was crazy!

  • alevin16

    holy moly are we lucky…if it stands

  • Nunya

    That was not good defense. That is lucky and I’m not sure that doesn’t get overturned

  • Robert Builder

    And there it is!

  • pittfan

    NICE SCOOP ARTIE!!

  • Aj Gentile

    He just legit dropped it

  • Clutterbox

    lucky, but I’m not 100% sure it is a catch.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Defense gets shredded but it works out. Better to be lucky than good.

  • George Kroger

    Lucky, but I’ll take it!

  • Daniel Moon

    it’s definitely a fumble for sure.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    it will be challenged and will be called a no catch.

  • Michael Cunningham

    Clear fumble .. took 3 steps

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Don;t pull a Penn State! Drive it down for a TD!

  • PaeperCup

    Ben caused that fumble

  • Chad Sanborn

    Dear Killer Bs… you were just given a GIFT! Please please put some points on the board.
    Thanks,

    Steeler Nation

  • gentry_gee

    Steelers D using the Force!

  • NinjaMountie

    It’s a catch…not even worried

  • Darth Blount 47

    Sarge “Fumbalaya” Wilkinson!

  • Taylor Williams

    Butler just hands them yards. If tate wasn’t an idiot then it would be inside the 20.

  • Mister Wirez

    Wow

  • L Garou

    The way they’re O is playing they’ll need two acts of god at least..

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to send Butler and Haley to US Marines boot camp during a bye week.

  • Rob S.

    I saw a bobble

  • 太阳三联

    He came down on both feet back turned then turned up and stepped and fumbled. His reaction says it all

  • Ray Smith

    You don’t need to hold on to that ball. This isn’t the win your looking for. Move along

  • Steve Johnson

    Don’t say it! He made a football move, he tried to turn and then fumbled.

  • Aj Gentile

    To soon

  • Dorian James

    Just dodged a bullet there boys

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Damn, why does the d look so weak today. I’ve been legit impressed so far this season.

  • EdJHJr

    You don’t say

  • Shannon Stephenson

    hope you are right

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    That’s a catch. Should stand… Hey, the other guys make mistakes too.

  • Chad Sanborn

    hush

  • Shannon Stephenson

    fire Danny Smith

  • Dorian James

    They’ve kept them out of the end zone at least

  • Buccos9

    Lucky break for the Steelers. I hate to see three-man rushes against a QB who is eating up our defence.

  • Daniel Moon

    Terrible defense calling by Butler tonight. I am not sure if he is the right guy.

  • SilverSteel

    Nice

  • Michael Mosgrove

    mitchell and burns gave up a bunch of plays.

  • JNick

    Well. Ill take a TO. Even if they hand it to us.

  • Brian Miller

    Me too, then I looked back over our schedule and realized why the D looked so good.

  • alevin16

    you beat me to it!

  • Taylor Williams

    I know right

  • Mister Wirez

    The Lions have a good QB.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Not saying the sky is falling – just odd after how well we’ve played, we look like last year all the sudden.

  • Milton Farfara

    Thank God for the Tate fumble!!

  • Nunya

    PHew…no replay

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    I’ll take 15 points in the 4th quarter! This offense should have put up more by now — drops and fumbles.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    always a good filler

  • Daniel Moon

    just stick with Bell to get a first down.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    make em pay fellas

  • Michael Cunningham

    Now put this damn game away ……

  • Dee Evolution

    The clock should stop momentarily, until it is re-spotted.

  • Dorian James

    They’re definitely moving the ball at will but again we’re fortunate the red zone defense has held up today

  • Darth Blount 47

    I wonder if that AC Sprain played a role?!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    we havent done that in 5 years.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Possibly it. I’ve been laughing every time they talk about our #1 pass defense. Like I said, we’ve been playing well, but we’re not the top pass defense in the league no matter what the stats say. QBs we’ve played against has a lot to do with it.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    maybe

  • Nunya

    You have to throw with that many people in the box

  • Daniel Moon

    come on. Haley calls a running play when every expect us to run.

  • Brian Miller

    Lol, true…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    can we just put away a team the easy way

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need a 9 minute drive puncuated by a touchdown

  • Robert Builder

    RPO

  • capehouse

    10 in the box against that run

  • alevin16

    we need a first

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, fine with the results in general, we just look like last year, where teams have been tearing through us and we don’t make big plays.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Rook

  • francesco

    Lbell does not have the speed to go outside.

  • PaeperCup

    Juju having a game

  • Shannon Stephenson

    and JuJu totally redeemed him self

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    JUJU heard you

  • pittfan

    thats how you catch!

  • Daniel Moon

    now everyone respect’s JuJu’s speed.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    that was kinda high

  • Darth Blount 47

    JuJu with 200 yards receiving???

  • Taylor Williams

    He has a decent second gear

  • Nunya

    Play action in that set….please!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Bell has had some tough running tonight

  • alevin16

    Now Butler calling their pass D

  • Mister Wirez

    The hesitation doesn’t help when going outside eithrr.

  • PaeperCup

    Lol we’ll score after regulation

  • pittfan

    martay coulda done dat

  • Sdale

    Pretty stout D line

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ab has not been performing up to his past history this year. 3 tds in 8 games.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Villi is good for one a game

  • Nunya

    And there it was and a false start! Agh!!!!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    was that my foot that was just shot?

  • Michael Cunningham

    Al …. !

  • Brian Miller

    Yup

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Put em away fellas and lets get home

  • Daniel Moon

    it’s not the coverage it is lack of pressure.

  • Taylor Williams

    Lions know what time it is

  • George Kroger

    I guess play action on first with 8 men in the box is out of the question

  • Dorian James

    If Haley had some pass plays out of that heavy run formation it would keep them a little off balance

  • Darth Blount 47

    Indubitably. If Ben would lay that ball in the breadbasket like he did for the rook.

  • Evan Eremita

    You don’t he’s the idiot? Haha go to sleep you’re drunk

  • Daniel Moon

    Haley is calling a terrible game.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Haley is killing me…this conservative BS is NOT working

  • Rob S.

    they’re expecting to be able to get a lot of pressure on the quarterback so my guess is the game plan coming in was rush for play zone behind it and maybe get some turnovers. Unfortunately the pressure isn’t coming and they don’t seem to have adjusted that well.

  • PaeperCup

    Screen to bell

  • Mister Wirez

    Yes. Too predictable

  • Michael Cunningham

    what the motherf#$%

  • Daniel Moon

    Matt Feiler time.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Hubbard hurt

  • Steve Johnson

    What the HELL are they doing?

  • Aj Gentile

    Oh god

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    give it to bell play it safe

  • Shannon Stephenson

    hmmmm

  • L Garou

    Not very inspiring O play calling..

  • Taylor Williams

    Gilbert needs to get healthy

  • Daniel Moon

    Why the hell does NFL have game day inactive?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Rub some dirt on it Old Mother….

  • Ray Smith

    Toilet paper filling in for the o line

  • Daniel Moon

    that was a late hit.

  • Brian Miller

    At least we aren’t Redskins fans…

  • Chad Sanborn

    the middle of the filed was open! why throw the check down?

  • Michael Mosgrove

    WHY WOULD YOU CALL A FLIPPING SHORT PASS ON A 3RD AND 15!?!? JESUS CHRIST

  • Darth Blount 47

    Are you effing kidding me???

    Brady getting hit like that would have demanded an investigation.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    why is ben on ground?

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    No late hit??

  • Mister Wirez

    They gonna fart around here and give them too much time. Too conservative. TODD

  • PaeperCup

    Way late. Refs stink tonight

  • George Kroger

    No late hit? Come on refs.

  • Daniel Moon

    finally a good punt by Berry.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    For the record, I like the D this year. Not perfect, but pretty damn good IMO. The offense, on the other hand, can go jump in a lake.

  • ThatGuy

    Late hit? Cool.

  • pittfan

    pick 6 on its way! book it!

  • Taylor Williams

    Remember refs didn’t call an obvious late hit when Aaron Rodgers went down.

  • DoctorNoah

    Worried. So many chances to put it away, squandered

  • #beatthepats

    Deebo time , we need fresh legs here

  • Nunya

    Well crap. Just took enough time off the clock to force the D to not give up a TD Drive.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    that last one I can live with

  • Daniel Moon

    I will say for the last time. Stafford melts down with good pressure. That’s when he throws INTs.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    just got some hot hot wings. can the Defense hold!?

  • EdJHJr

    5 minute drive game over

  • alevin16

    What do you have to do to get a late hit on Ben…break his nose…no they don’t call that either

  • Brian Miller

    I’m actually curious what it would take for a late hit call on BB. Maybe after our punt if he was tackled on the bench?

  • Chad Sanborn

    defense is good enough to win in the playoffs. Offense is good enough to win the division.

  • Ray Smith

    Not defending Haley but it speaks
    volumes that he doesn’t want to put it on Ben Osweiler’s shoulders there

  • Michael Cunningham

    Deebo .. Deebo …. Deebo ….. !!!!!

  • NinjaMountie

    Eli’s drop might cost us this game.

  • PaeperCup

    I predict a 3 man rush, and 30 yard strike to m Jones

  • Dorian James

    This is why I d h b is still on the team

  • Michael Mosgrove

    if we lose by 2 points im going to flip out.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Game is getting called really weirdly.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Well said.

  • DoctorNoah

    Yep

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    our defense gotta stop them here this is staffords time

  • 6 ring circus

    Yep, cause Tay-tay needs a perfect pass…almost.

  • Daniel Moon

    We need to groom Big Ben’s heir quickly. This might be his last.

  • EdJHJr

    This is very predictable

  • George Kroger

    Refs calling nothing, except the PI on AB

  • Steve Johnson

    The O/C and his play calling? The Lions have been moving the ball up and down the field all night. They desperately need a North/South running style RB.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    not really. haley is doing what haley does.

  • Chad Sanborn

    yeah the refs are just guessing

  • Daniel Moon

    It’s Deebo time.

  • PaeperCup

    The lions oline can

  • NinjaMountie

    Can you stop with the Ben trashing ……for just a little while?

  • Michael Mosgrove

    we have one. terrell watson.

  • Chad Sanborn

    or the missed throw to a wide open DHB

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    its the water

  • Chad Sanborn

    or the 2 turnovers

  • Daniel Moon

    Come on 3 and out.

  • Clutterbox

    nice play.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Tip drill! C’mon!

  • Brian Miller

    Please get a fricking sack…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    so close to a pick

  • Darth Blount 47

    Watch Cam Heyward. He gets pressure almost every down.

  • 6 ring circus

    Halloween?

  • Daniel Moon

    Stop Stop.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Artie has like 100 tackles

  • Nunya

    I’m sure glad we keep rushing 3

  • Chad Sanborn

    Legos have tackled me in the dark walking to the bathroom better than what I just saw

  • PaeperCup

    pressure!

  • Daniel Moon

    What the heck is D doing?

  • Daniel Moon

    Absolutely no pressure

  • Michael Mosgrove

    dallas vs washington all over again.

  • alevin16

    giving up a score

  • Jay Clam

    Get the fkn subs off the field, shiiiit dude

  • PaeperCup

    Fart!

  • Greg Payne

    I’ve been put in protocol by those things.

  • Jay Clam

    Dupree lol

  • pittfan

    johnny 1 note

  • Darth Blount 47

    He just pushed Haden down. Off-setting?

  • John

    Lions will score to go ahead. Only question is if they leave time. Very conservative play calling by steelers

  • Brian Miller

    Heck of an INT…

  • Jay Clam

    We’re losing this game

  • Clutterbox

    Looks like they are sticking with Chick instead of Deebo as the sub the rest of the game.

  • Jay Clam

    We’re giving them all the time and we’ll have none

  • Brian Miller

    Figured doesn’t it?

  • alevin16

    sadly I have to agree

  • pittfan

    20-15. how do you figure?

  • Jay Clam

    Future tense, bussy

  • Taylor Williams

    Haden is a freak. Why didn’t we draft him?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Really nice high point by Haden regardless of everything else.

  • PaeperCup

    3 man rush surprise surprise

  • Jay Clam

    Buddy lol

  • Daniel Moon

    IDK why Butler is not rooting OLBS to make them fresh.

  • Nunya

    Yea…let’s not put a fresh Deebo in because…that would make too much sense.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    touchdown. we lose.

  • Jason

    this is about to be a Stafford Special, this O line is not good yet they haven’t got any pressure all day

  • Jay Clam

    It’s over, fellas

  • pittfan

    dread is bad for your complexion

  • Steeldog22

    We never draft that high

  • will

    Dupree….the new Jarvis Jones

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I dont get it

  • PaeperCup

    What in the world. Where is the dedense?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Rush 3 get eaten alive. Rush 4-5 and get sacks… what do we do? rush 3 with the game on the line… WTF

  • Jay Clam

    Goodnight

  • Michael Cunningham

    Hangin’ around ….

  • Taylor Williams

    It was gonna happen eventually

  • alevin16

    well at least we may have time

  • Clutterbox

    bad tackling as always.

  • Daniel Moon

    Butler sucks.

  • capehouse

    VW blew that

  • EdJHJr

    Told ya

  • NinjaMountie

    Just score quickly

  • Jay Clam

    And Davis hurt. We have no safeties

  • Brian Miller

    It wouldn’t be our D without at least 2 blown coverages…sigh

  • Buccos9

    Butler insists on three-man rushes and Stafford is killing them with so much time to find a receiver.

  • Nunya

    Ok. I have decided. Defense has been a mess. And Butler hasn’t got the intelligence to realize that zone is getting us killed.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Burns and Davis both hurt

  • EdJHJr

    Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Daniel Moon

    we have Wilcox.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    or like 8.

  • Jay Clam

    418 passing yards lol

  • Michael Cunningham

    we don’t deserve to win this game …

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    This is horrific

  • Mister Wirez

    Might want to think about calling a TO.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    stafford 418 yards. ridiculous.

  • 6 ring circus

    Secondary b*tch*s. our weakest link and with in that link…#25…

  • alevin16

    Butler is just practicing for when he has to get blown out by Brady

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Dude, could he have been more open?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Davis how do you get juked by his big a$$

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lol…not funny

  • Darth Blount 47

    Stiffen up, D!!!

  • L Garou

    D plan sucked. O plan sucked. Both stuck with stubbornly.

  • Jay Clam

    Need a pick lol

  • 6 ring circus

    head around, my aS$, he got beat again…

  • Daniel Moon

    VW sucks on pass coverage.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    again burns checks out for multiple plays a game.

  • EdJHJr

    Lion have a good qb

  • Daniel Moon

    Come on 2 more downs.

  • Mister Wirez

    Davis out juked and broke an ankle?

  • Reezy

    Soo glad Burns got rocked! He’s so scary on the tackle

  • Jay Clam

    Davis back in

  • Steeldog22

    JJ Wilcox pick. Book it.

  • Jay Clam

    Tom Ewing

  • Nunya

    Hardly any free blitzers all game.

  • Daniel Moon

    Helluva tackle.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Hilton!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    4th down///lets go D!!!!!!!!!

  • PaeperCup

    Agghh this game

  • Darth Blount 47

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO.

  • Taylor Williams

    What the point of getting good talent if we’re still gonna do crazy crap?

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    lions taxidermist tonight

  • Clutterbox

    That was like a Haley call there on 3rd down.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Kid can play!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    biggst play of game coming up

  • Brian Miller

    You called it Darth!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    been 5 years since we put a game away. smh.

  • NYBurgh79

    Hilton!

  • Daniel Moon

    That decision by Caldwell to go for was a dumb decision.

  • Reezy

    To be fair they only have 15 pts sooooo actually not that bad

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Hilton is the most consistent in the secondary

  • will

    Hindsight

  • EdJHJr

    Which Jones catches game winner

  • PaeperCup

    Haha Beav, with the most obvious comment of the day

  • Shannon Stephenson

    and you are being generous

  • Michael Mosgrove

    calling short passes on 3rd and long, calling long passes on 3rd and short, not useing deebo. this team is so farking erratic its insane.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Lions will win 21-20 on 7 Prater fgs

  • alevin16

    😀

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    we need one play

  • Taylor Williams

    Haden is. Hilton a close second

  • Shannon Stephenson

    maybe two….Lions have all 3 timeouts

  • Clutterbox

    Haley was calling that play for them. youre welcome.

  • SilverSteel

    Love that guy!

  • Daniel Moon

    Come on Steelers. Stop.

  • 6 ring circus

    I’ve said that more than once on these threads…practicing…for what? wait and see…practice, nonetheless…true.

  • pittfan

    one more time!!!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    they giving detriot extra time to plann something sneaky

  • Reezy

    this thread is filled with some fair-weather fans boy sheesh

  • PaeperCup

    Have to pressure

  • Buccos9

    The “good news” is that if the worst happens, and Detroit gets a TD, we will have just under two minutes to go down field for a field goal try. But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

  • Steve Johnson

    lol. They will not have the #1 Defense as of tomorrow. Three man rushes against a QB like Stafford? Stupid!

  • Darth Blount 47

    I swear, the haters around here are sooo funny. I can’t tell if they all are just trolls, lonely souls, fake-Steeler fans, or just lifelong pessimists. Either way, hilarious.

  • Chad Sanborn

    not over yet

  • alevin16

    rush 2

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Deebo ick 6

  • Jay Clam

    HARGRAVE AND SHAZ!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Shazier almost picked it!!!!

  • Daniel Moon

    finally some pressure.

  • Rob

    And see..that where rushing 3 works

  • alevin16

    lifelong pessimist 😀

  • Taylor Williams

    Shazier. Catch the ball then run.

  • Mister Wirez

    Yep. I thought so too.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    F#$% Shazier had a pick 6 ughhhhh

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Pick that off!

  • gentry_gee

    Incredible D!

  • capehouse

    they were going for the TE again. he tripped

  • Nunya

    That missed pick may cost us a game…we go 3 and out, we lose.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    HARGRAVE!!!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Take that, HATERS!!!!

  • WreckIess

    Shazier could’ve housed that.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Shaz could have waked that back for a pick 6

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    We had ’em all the way!

  • Clutterbox

    need 1 first down!

  • Jay Clam

    First down and we win

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Shazier could have really ended this game.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    oops too early

  • Daniel Moon

    Stafford threw for more than 400 yards and no TD.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    maybe two depending on when we get it

  • pittfan

    GRAVEDIGGER TRUCKED HIM

  • alevin16

    Quick call Bettis, we need to bleed the clock

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    bell you better not fumble

  • Taylor Williams

    He needs more snaps

  • Sdale

    That’s a lot of field he had in front of him.

  • Daniel Moon

    come on no punt. just get 1 1st down.

  • Jay Clam

    Epitome of a bend and don’t break defense

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, that was a pick-6 easy.

  • T-51b

    That’s gotta be a record if it holds

  • Brian Miller

    Just one first down…just one…

  • EdJHJr

    Lots of time

  • PaeperCup

    Yeah pick 6 there with his speed

  • Nunya

    They have to get a 1st down. Their field goal kicker is too good.

  • pittfan

    THAT was my pick 6!! i booked it!!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    burns and mitchell bled all game.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    stat of the weird

  • Buccos9

    If Shazier could have held on we could have had great field pousition.

  • Steve Johnson

    And they still have to face Tom Brady.

  • Jay Clam

    Stupid play call

  • Jay Clam

    Damnit Haley wtf

  • Chad Sanborn

    wtf are we doing? wtf…

  • Sdale

    You shut your mouff

  • Shannon Stephenson

    WTF

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    HORRIBLE PLAYCALLING

  • PaeperCup

    Why?

  • Nunya

    NOOOO!!!!!’ Crossing routes!!

  • Aj Gentile

    He’s not that good to score five points on a kick

  • Clutterbox

    No need to worry about their field goal kicker.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    He might have had 6 on that. At his speed there wasn’t anyone there to stop him I don’t think

  • NinjaMountie

    ?????????

  • Jay Clam

    Throws a back shoulder out route up 5 with less than two minutes left and the opponent having two TOs lol

  • Chad Sanborn

    why why why why why

  • alevin16

    play action and roll out, that will eat up the rest of the clock

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ab may have the most yards in the league but he has 3 tds in 8 games. thats below average.

  • EdJHJr

    Jackass to moron incomplete

  • Jay Clam

    PI! Saves our ass

  • Daniel Moon

    flag flag flag

  • Sdale

    What in the fresh…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    thank you

  • PaeperCup

    Thank you

  • Nunya

    That’s the game!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    wheres the lag?

  • Jay Clam

    Thank you, sirs

  • pittfan

    Eli mugged!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Bout damn time!

  • Daniel Moon

    Finally thanks zebra.

  • Darth Blount 47

    6 – 2 and it feels so good……………………

  • NinjaMountie

    saved by the flag

  • Kevin Schwartz

    What the hell was that?

  • alevin16

    Hey Jay Clam are you at the game? You are like 5 minutes ahead of my feed.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    got one when it counted

  • Daniel Moon

    just run Bell.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    nice act

  • PaeperCup

    Great more opportunity for Haley to blow this

  • Jay Clam

    No, I’m just watching on my Xfinity cable lol

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Dont even give Haley a ticket back…let him rot in Detroit

  • gentry_gee

    If the Steelers O could ever match the intensity, this would be a hell of a team.

  • Clutterbox

    Got lucky the ref saw that.

  • Chad Sanborn

    please run the ball.

  • Applebite

    Yep…Everyone is going to have a picture of Haley on their dart boards for the rest of the year.

  • alevin16

    man my direct TV is slow

  • Jay Clam

    Sorry man :/

  • Michael Cunningham

    one first down

  • Clutterbox

    Just give it to bell 2 times.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Please, run the ball, or dump it off to Bell or Brown for an easy reception.

  • Chad Sanborn

    been on mine all year already….lots of holes

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    still stupid playcalling should’ve just ran andhave faith in the defense

  • Shannon Stephenson

    come on 1st down

  • T-51b

    If they fire him, they win the Super Bowl.

    I’m so sure of it

  • Jay Clam

    Mmmmm one more yard and this game is over

  • PaeperCup

    Why Do our ten yards look longer than theirs

  • Michael Mosgrove

    i had one 5 years ago theres nothing left of it. its been burned, stabbed, set on fire, frozen, drowned.

  • Taylor Williams

    Take Butler with him

  • Daniel Moon

    3rd and 1.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Lets get this over

  • Jay Clam

    QB sneak to seal it, pls

  • Jay Clam

    Awww shotgun lol

  • Axel

    How many times can the Detroit secondary grab and hold a receiver without getting called

  • Buccos9

    I know it would re risky but they are going to lead the box, so a play action short pass might work here.

  • alevin16

    bomb

  • Darth Blount 47

    We need 1 yard. ONE.

  • Jay Clam

    Juju seals it!

  • Daniel Moon

    finally a good call.

  • Chad Sanborn

    game over!!!!!

  • Evan Eremita

    I’m taking bets on a deep ball

  • Shannon Stephenson

    wrap this B#$%^ up

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Game! Nice play!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    NOW! … We had ’em all the way.

  • PaeperCup

    Ok that was a good call

  • alevin16

    Hines Ward with the shovel

  • Darth Blount 47

    3 – 2 – 1 … Win. Kitties tamed.

  • Jay Clam

    5 of 7 at Heinz, boys.

  • Mister Wirez

    Not kicking the field goal by Caldwell is inexcusable for the Lions

  • Nunya

    Well…that was an ugly win and I love it!!

  • Michael Cunningham

    What a call … JuJu !!!!!

  • Aj Gentile

    Remember when “fans” said we were going to lose. They’re probably pretty upset they won

  • Jay Clam

    Ugh stupid fighting

  • Daniel Moon

    sore losers

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahaha now the charities start collecting money

  • Michael Mosgrove

    dude just threw a punch at foster.

  • Jay Clam

    Ejected lol

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, that’s a lot of trust in the rookie.

  • alevin16

    Person foul on offense, Lions awarded a TD

  • Darth Blount 47

    You want to swing on Ramon Foster?!?!?! Hahahahah!

  • Daniel Moon

    dude gets rejected with 42 sec. remaining.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’d be salty too, all those yards and no tds.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Whats with the emotions? This was destined.

  • pittfan

    they wont step up and claim it…

  • Jay Clam

    LOL I love it, Ben just gets the heck outta there

  • PaeperCup

    Good idea, punch a football helmet

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Of note – our next five games:

    Colts
    Titans
    Packers (without Rodgers)
    Bengals
    Ravens

  • Mister Wirez

    JuJu MVB! Bryant who?

  • Aj Gentile

    Biggest losers on the web

  • Jay Clam

    13-3, lose to the Pats just naturally

  • Darth Blount 47

    Win
    Win
    Win
    Win
    Tough game. Win.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    we will go 1-4

  • Daniel Moon

    at least we are 6-2 with a bye week. Thanks caldwell.

  • Mister Wirez

    Still hate we lost to Bears

  • Jay Clam

    Get healthy, Tuitt and Gilbert. Bye week!

  • pittfan

    Too bad!! WE WON! boo hoo

  • Darth Blount 47

    I told you guys….. My #43 jersey never loses!!!!!!!!

    In Troy I Trust.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Damn defense won this game! Just beat them up in the RZ.

  • NinjaMountie

    Again, now I can enjoy watching Star Trek!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    FIRE DANNY SMITH

  • WreckIess

    Winners:
    Juju
    Redzone defense
    Sean Davis

  • PaeperCup

    A lot of trap games

  • francesco

    Told you they would win😊

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Coffee; Pierogi; hot wings couple biers. Steelers win. I’m satisfied.

  • Nathaniel Sullivan

    How bout that redzone defense!!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Never mad at a win! I’m sleeping easy!

  • renoir

    good team win, ever tough to win at night in Detroit these days…

  • pittfan

    wheres that guy that said we’re an 8-8 team????? yoohoo!!

  • Sonny Saks

    Great W

  • NinjaMountie

    If it weren’t for drops Ben would have had an alright game. Not as bad as some are making it out.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    winner :juju
    loser: haley, mitchell, ben and burns

  • Shannon Stephenson

    thats a good day

  • 6 ring circus

    Well deserved, too

  • pittfan

    +$100!

  • PaeperCup

    It wasn’t bad. Again questionable play calling at times

  • renoir

    their were some bad calls and yet their were some brilliant ones like the last shovel to JUJU…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Burns with 100 tackles needed 101 just to get off the losers list

  • Jones

    Exactly! Eli cost Ben 7 by himself

  • Darth Blount 47

    Crawling back under the bridge. Along with a bunch of the other trolls that were out tonight.

  • Michael Cunningham

    6-2 at the bye sounds fine …….

  • Sdale

    Not that every game isn’t tough, but that Titans game could be a tough one. It’s they type of team that gives us trouble. Good run game and solid D…but yeah, all winnable.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    that last play call was what we are looking for.

  • francesco

    If it wasn’t for the 4th down stops by the defense i would say.

  • Buccos9

    It’s great to get the win but I still worry about this pass defence going up against Brady. They gave up 423 yards to Stafford.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    how many yards did burns give up tonight? 80-90? how many did mitchell give up 60-70?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Really!? 🙄😉

  • 6 ring circus

    who was the buccos game day broadcaster? Bob…?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, thinking the same thing. He’s a baller. Seems tough, but good natured – kind of like Hines in that respect as well.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Play calling wasn’t bad… I think the execution is still off.. The lions D was definitely playing good D.. I have never seen so many tackles made by grabbing on to an ankle for dear life.. Seemed like every tackle on Bell was like that.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    and all those touchdowns too…dont forget that

  • PaeperCup

    Stafford is a heck of a qb

  • renoir

    wish i knew who called what plays…

  • NinjaMountie

    That’s part of the game.

  • PaeperCup

    Juju hahaha, love this kid

  • EdJHJr

    Juju only positive

  • Darth Blount 47

    Great profile pic! The Korova Milk Bar!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    stafford has long been underrated. the point is that a decent qb carves this defense up like its nothing.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Brady will put up numbers not doubt. And he will have more TDs in the RZ. We HAVE to get better with our own RZ offense.

  • Sdale

    Yeah, they had some really bad breakdowns, but they’ve looked pretty good against better offenses than this. I don’t like the rush 3 all the time. I think that makes any secondary look bad.

  • renoir

    look, every playoff team has warts this year so we are in the thick of it…

  • Jones

    Vince Williams sounds like Dave Chappelle when he talks. Love it, lol!

  • ThatGuy

    I’m going to sleep great the next week lol

  • Kevin Schwartz

    For the record, the Lions aren’t a bad team. Two of their 3 prior losses came by a total of 7 points.

  • PaeperCup

    Props to the lions on both sides. They played very good

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Stafford is the highest paid player for a reason. And he has legit receivers.

  • pittfan

    6-2, #1 AFC seed, boo hoo for the boobirds

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    I think porter and deebo stole jujus bike screamin “WHO RIDE?WE RIDE!” LOL

  • Kevin Schwartz

    We’re definitely in the thick of it. The good thing about the fact that we’ve underachieved is that we have the potential to play a lot better.

  • NinjaMountie

    Of course

  • Michael Mosgrove

    dhb too. thats 14 points.

  • Sdale

    That beat-down of a Case Keenum Vikings team doesn’t look too bad now either.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    it always has been under haley.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    yeah but Haley sucks at play calling and so does Butler and we need to fire Danny Smith…..blah blah blah

  • Chad Sanborn

    Lions D was fairly stout. And their Off is impressive for not having any real star players. Good job of play calling.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup – Jags are 4-3 as well.

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m with you but Haley has had some questionable play calls.

  • pittfan

    sell the team during the bye to avoid further embarrassment!

  • Sdale

    Exactly, and we have what I think is a real critical piece of the puzzle missing in Gilbert. We become a much better team when he comes back.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    disagree. if eli catches that td and dhb catches that td. ben still under 60%. score would have been better but haley’s playcalling is average at best for the weapons we have and have had.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Better not, that game will be for the 1st seed and homefield.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, just saying, this wasn’t a gimme that we almost blew. I think we were definitely the better team, and we should have won, but this wasn’t the Bears.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I am not always happy with the play calling but there seems to be a lot of plays that are not executed well which puts Haley in a tougher spot then needed.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Couldn’t even run the clock out tonight. Pass plays? wtf.. Thankfully we got a flag to help us out. those kinds of decisions are what will cost you games in the playoffs. Play smart.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The gunner! Prince.

  • NinjaMountie

    He would have been at 61 percent. Then there is JuJu’s drop.

  • Chad Sanborn

    trying to force the to take timeouts and he dials up 2 pass plays…yeah hes up for coach of the year

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Agree – we haven’t played too soft of a schedule, but Alex Smith is probably the best QB we’ve played besides Stafford (Flacco and Dalton have their moments, but their offenses aren’t great). I still think our secondary is going to get tested.

  • Intense Camel

    Bad throw

  • renoir

    And you are giving me much radosty my droogie…

  • NinjaMountie

    That was a bad throw by Ben to dhb

  • Shannon Stephenson

    The Lions were stacking the line against the run….AB against anyone one on one should be a win for AB….Haley cant help that Ben and AB cant get their act together on that play…should have been a easy first and game over.

  • thomas hmmmm

    I agree with you. Ben overthrew a couple wide open guys again, which I guess you can expect with any qb to do.
    I think the offense operates better with Jesse James in than it does with McDonald. James definitely has better hands.

  • pittfan

    the vast majority of playcalling criticism is after the fact.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Would be a win usually but like Collinsworth said they were allowing a lot of grabbing and touching by the secondaries.

  • pittfan

    Outlaw doubled his career YAC tonite

  • renoir

    Lions will make the playoffs over the Vikes imo…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    couch quarterbacks?

  • thomas hmmmm

    Lol Yea he did on that one play!

  • pittfan

    easy to call AFTER the play. Matt coined the phrase “results based”.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Have no idea how the Vikings are even winning games.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    They one of the best defenses in the league!

  • Intense Camel

    Recievers are open. Ben is missing them.

  • renoir

    smoke, mirrors and a good D…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    but that offense is torrid

  • thomas hmmmm

    Vikes D is way better than Detriots, even though Detroits D played great tonight. I think the Vikes are the better coached team, which means they should win the division. Caldwell makes foolish decisions, like the first 4th and goal try when down by 1.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Eh, Diggs, Thielen, Rudolph are pretty dang good!

  • pittfan

    GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!

  • pittfan

    Poor run game and below average QB but yes those three are above the line

  • renoir

    yeah, but hard to bet on Bradford or Kennum yuck…

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    If Dalvin Cook doesn’t get hurt they could be a real headache for teams.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Dungy said post game that the Steelers are the most complete team.. At this point I have to agree with him. The O is dangerous with many weapons and the D is also a top unit. Even though the D gave up almost 500 yards tonight they didn’t allow a TD which is what matters most.

  • renoir

    and one of the better coaches imo did the same thing against us in KC…

  • NinjaMountie

    Keenum has been doing a good job as well.

  • thomas hmmmm

    I wonder what MB said to himself during JuJu’s 97 yard TD.. I am surprised the cameras didn’t pan to MB after that TD.. He probably was saying “get him, get him, get him”

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Agreed…if you have a state of the art run game and defense you can get away with a Case Keenum but without the run game I just cannot see how they can be winning like they are but am not surprised they are winning games.

  • NinjaMountie

    You might judge Keenum on his past but this season he’s been well above average in play.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Yes, really surprised by that in all honesty!

  • Intense Camel

    Lmao no

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Better then in the past but do not think he is even still a average QB.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Probably said he would not have to look back because they would be eating a bowl of dust.

  • NinjaMountie

    You can think it all you want. He’s been playing above average the whole season. This is a results game.

  • renoir

    and Falcons were last year so it doesnt really matter who is, does it…

  • Big Joe

    Nice game. D gotta be exhausted after rushing all night

  • Shannon Stephenson

    chasing the speedy Eric Ebron all over the field

  • NinjaMountie

    Have you looked at his numbers. Keenum is performing. That’s why they are winning. Honestly, this reminds me of the same thing they used to say about Alex Smith. Keenum has been bounced around from coordinator to coordinator. I believe this is his second year under the same coordinator (came with him from the Rams I think) and it shows.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I will wait and see…if it persist till the end of the year then yeah but I need to see a bigger sample.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    What are we averaging on defense? 15pts allowed? That’s good football!

  • Dee Evolution

    Keenum doesn’t kill ’em. The play-calling is creative, and their defense doesn’t give up big plays.

  • NinjaMountie

    I can get on board with that for sure. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying he’s going to be the next Alex Smith. I have just watched him play the last few weeks and he’s playing smart and well. I always thought he got a little of a raw deal in Houston. Kinda like Alex. Still, he’s got to do it all year.

  • Chad Sanborn

    agree to disagree. You run the ball no matter what in that situation. Keep the clock going or make them use a TO. Thats the smart play.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    the way the Lions were going down the field do you risk giving them one more shot. I agreed with the play calling…something Belicheat does all the time with success the only difference is that the Pats execute.

  • Chad Sanborn

    well when Brady is our QB and Bellicheat is calling the plays I will allow it. Until then lets stick to what works.

  • Steve Johnson

    lol. That’s too funny. I think the Steelers wanted to see what they had in JuJu. Now they know what they have, and so does Martavis Bryant. Hmm! I recall a tweet M.B. made immediately after they drafted JuJu. He said, and I quote “this pick was made to replace Sammie Coates.” Hmm!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    LOL

  • Shannon Stephenson

    but it wasn’t…Bell was not able to run much at all…all game. Why continue to do something that was not working at the time?

  • Jaybird

    It seemed like we were down by 17 the way the thread was so down on the Steelers.

  • Evan Eremita

    That’s the one I was talking about

  • Evan Eremita

    When he was earning Super Bowl rings he was performing better than he is now. I think you would agree that a Super Bowl ring doesn’t mean vinnie testaverde is better than Matt stafford
