Can someone explain to me how Lard Ass Shaun Rogers can take two steps and plant the crown of his helmet right into Ben's shoulder and not get a roughing the passer penalty? Unreal.
Great win though. Just hope Ben is ok.
I wasn't happy with that non-call either, it doesn't get much more blatant than that. I was also bothered by the fact that Marvel Smith and a couple other O-lineman in the area didn't react, either by pointing it out to the officials, or putting Rogers on his ass for the cheap shot. They just kinda seemed to shrug it off and help Ben to his feet, bunch of pussies.
I can see why you don't wanna risk a FG getting blocked on that 4th down at the end (would have been a moot point had FWP gone down in bounds on that last long run), but WTF was up with the playcall? Does Arians not realize that even if you run it on 4th down, if you don't get the first down the clock stops? You gotta call pass there, and if it's not there, have Ben throw it out of bounds.
Otherwise, good game, considering the weather conditions. Game was never as close as the score might indicate, Steelers had it the whole way. Troy looks like he is back in form, which is good to see after a sub-par '07. Not much of a pass rush from the D, but that's one of the best O-lines in football. Anderson couldn't get anything going (thank you Cleveland for banking on this one-year wonder!) and Braylon had the dropsies again.
Willie looked great again and Holmes made some great catches. Ben took too many hits again, let's hope that shoulder doesn't linger much longer.
Well we are 2-0 and well atop the division. Bring on the Iggles! :towel:
