If we get the same announcing crew (Fouts and Dick Enberg I believe) as last week, I'll probably have to watch the game on mute. Did anybody else notice how any times Enberg said the wrong player's name during a play?  It was pretty much an every possession occurrence, and he seems to have always had this problem.  I'm not sure how that senile fucker still has that job.  Given the fact this isn't exactly a marquee match-up (it's a 5 star game because we're in it!) I'm sure that's who we'll be stuck with.

I predict no nail-biter this week.  Steelers win 34-10 and Derek Anderson might even complete 3 passes (remember when people actually thought he was good?  291998 )

It's so clear that the Steelers will dominate this game, I'm dreading it. If they barely win or <gulp> actually find a way to lose, then I will hide in my house for the rest of the week.

So far, it sounds like we're only dominating in our mediocrity.  The BA/BS Report will be interesting tomorrow.

In the good news for the day, the Ravens look like a bunch of bumbling buffoons vs. the Vikings.  Hopefully we'll get our crap together before next Sunday.

FWP looks like he has a fire under his ass today.

Maybe that big game by Mendenhall last week has fringe benefits.

OK, I'm flipping back and forth btw NYG@NO and BAL@MIN and following the Steelers game tracker on CBS Sportsline.  I noticed that after the Browns scored, the Steelers scored in quick fashion on a Mendenhall TD. 

Then I see the kickoff went to the CLE 22!?  Is that right?  Did Reed squib it? Like, on purpose or something?  The 22!?

Yes, they have been kicking it short, to try to keep away from Cribbs. Although, that time it failed, he came up and caught it.

Did they start kicking away from Cribbs after he burned 'em?

And was that the big guy's first 400 yard (23/35 417 2 1) game?  I cannot recall another.  Damn bus driver.

Yes, they tried to kick it short or squib it. Gave the Stains excellent field position, which Anderson  and Co. would promptly squander.

"Mendinghall" (as Wilcotts called him the entire day) was picking up blitzes all day with ease.  FWP definitely can't do that.

The score made the game seem closer than it actually was.  The Browns offensive TD should never have happened, Harrison was so blatantly held by Thomas on that deep ball to Massoquai it was unbelievable.  It took TWO guys holding Harrison at the same time in the 4th quarter for him to actually get that call.

Hines Ward looks as good right now as he has in his entire career.  Weren't we worried about him possibly losing a step as recently as two offseasons ago?  The guy looks like he can play another 5+ years.

Looked like Troy was pretty much just back there playing decoy after that pick when he tweaked his knee.  Looked like the knee just gave out on him due to lack of strength, I don't think he re-injured it.

Can't believe the Vikes let the Ravens back into that game, and that the Ravens ended up shitting the bed at the end anyway.  That Minnesota D isn't even as close to as good as advertised.  That D-line will give our O-line fits, but the secondary is ripe for the picking.  As a Twin Cities native, I definitely could use the win next week for my own well-being.

No. Ben put up 433 in '06 in a 31-20 loss to Denver.

I thought Ward's 2nd TD was good...he maintained possession long enough IMO before bobbling it.  THEN Massaquoi makes a decent catch with some questionable footwork that Tomlin challenges...watching the replay, he does the very same thing Ward did (bobbles OOB)and they rule it a catch.  WTF?  lets see some consistency fellas.

It just seems that this team is one bad play from making a game a complete blowout.  the Cribbs TD kept the browns in it somewhat, the pick 6 last week gave the lions some momentum, etc...

Couldn't complain too much about those two catch/no catch reviews.  Another solid win, but I'd really like to see us kick the crap out of one of these weak sisters, and have it show on the scoreboard.

It seems like all across the league this new "must maintain possession throughout the catch" rule has been interpreted about a dozen different ways.  Something the league definitely needs to look at next year.  Absolutely no consistency at all with those calls, to the point that even when I can see exactly what happened on replay, I have no idea what the result of the review will be.

I saw the end of the Bills/Jets game.  Still don't know how they took the catch away from the Bills at the 4-yard line.  I guess the technical interpretation was correct, but dang...how could they look at that play and say "no catch?"

Bill Hillgrove said that pretty soon they're going to have to catch it, get both feet down and carry the ball to the locker room for it to count.

True dat.  Plus, the last two games weren't shown in my market and I'm usually good for at least that many.

Missed most of the Lions game, setting in a new concrete stoop.  PITA project, mixing 80# bags of Quikrete in the wheelbarrow, slopping them into the forms before the mix started to tighten, working with concrete tint, etc.  Just stopped raining yesterday, so took the forms off, and pretty happy with the result, except the tinting sucked and will need to be re-stained.  Point being, I saw the 4Q stand against the mighty Lions, and a few other odd plays (Wallace TD).  Hard to get really excited about watching the TiVo for academic reasons.

Stains game was not televised here, so went to see Paranormal Activity with the Mrs. and the MiL.  I kind of like this sort of style in horror movies (cf. Blair Witch), but found this (and Blair) disappointing and not scary.  There were moments, too few.  MiL found it kind of boring.  These forays into handheld simply lack enough information to keep things interesting.  Sure, the unseen is scarier than the overdone Hollywood stuff, but I still need, uh, something.  Oh, so we go out to the car, turn on ESPN radio, Steelers score to go up 24-14.  And I'm pissed off and cussing.  They're like What's wrong, we're winning... And I'm all fuming, If we just scored a TD, that means this game was just 17-14 in the third quarter, which is scarier than anything I just watched over the past two hours...

I don't know, having read various synopses of the game, whether I can bring myself to even watch it without puking up in my own mouth.

Someone other than Arians must be secretly calling plays, but Arians got loose and, at a minimum, started calling the 1st down plays in the 2nd qtr becasue every single one of them wa a running play right up the middle into Rogers for no gain.

Ben waived him off after one of the long pass plays got them inside the 10, going no huddle.  That is probably the only reason they scored.

Another one of those where I felt the opponent was never in it, but somehow the scoreboard didn't reflect it - just like the other 5 games so far.  Totally dominated the yardage differential.  The special teams TD by Cribbs didn't help.  I didn't see all of the turnover fiasco at the end of the third, but 3 consecutive turnovers for us were thankfully offset by a nearly as inept 2 by them.

Parker was a little better than he'd been early on, but still feel Mendenhall is the better option right now.

Oline continues to have the appearance of improvement, but this week may well change that trend.

One of the announcers commented that in last week's game versus the Lions, after the pick 6 that Ben threw, he went over to BA and said let me call the next series. 

For those that watched that lovely series, we all know how that ended...

Coincidentally (not), they pretty much went no huddle that whole series.
