Assuming the Steelers win out, who's gonna be the guy that takes the team on his shoulders and propells them to voctory? (I feel optimistic again, now that the Colts beat the Jags)

The duo of Harrison and Woodley kick it up and notch and combine for 8+ sacks and 10+ TFL per game here on out.  No offense scores a TD and the Steelers set some weird record by winning each game 11-3.

Last night didn't change my optimism a whole lot.   I expected Indy to win that game.  It helps, but all that was accomplished is Jax has been pulled deeper into the mosh pit with half the AFC battling for 2 spots.

If any silver lining can come from last night, it's the fact that Jax threw everything they had into a home game against a team that was going through the motions and couldn't get it done.  That does not bode well for them when they play NE, and an eighth loss knocks them out.

Ben had a little help from a rookie WR with 0:00 on the clock.  I mean, when was the last time we had a rookie pair of hands that had a play that clutch?  Ben put it on the spot, but I'm still a little shaky over the fact that a rookie had the season to catch or drop.

I a little shakier about a coach that calls for an on-side kick when he's up by 2 with 2 minutes left.

See gameday thread - I'm totally cool with that call.  First, it should have worked.  Second, after two blown leads last night, by my count we have now blown NINE 4th quarter leads, including three against Oakland alone.

Any reason to think we'd get a stop?

Speaking of which, after sleeping on it it was probably best that Ike screwed that up.  Had we recovered, we likely would have had a conservative 3 and out, give the Pack the ball back and they drive down and kill us with no time left.

I'm in total agreement, dude.
I can easily see us going 3 & out if we'd recovered, then they score and we have no chance to recover.

In all, I think Tomlin did the right thing given the situation and our defensive secondary this season...

The "post reply" screen is doing some crazy shit. Once the height of the text is taller than the box I'm typing in, it drops the response down below the bottom of the box and I can't see what I'm typing. And I think that makes it more difficult to stick the narrative at the end of the last quote because there are times when I roll down but just don't roll down far enough, and I can't see whether or not I'm at the bottom. In short, I blame a technical glitch for the times I mess it up.

I'm not seeing what you mean.  There's a scroll bar on the right and if you scroll it all the way down you should be at the end of the quoted text.

Right, but when you click on there, do you see the cursor? I don't. It drops down. If I click on it, and then get distracted, I can be looking at an end quote, but it's not the last end quote. In short, it doesn't stay at the bottom of the written material. It's the same way even if there is nothing quoted. If I start typing and the text is more than can be shown in the box, the screen within the box automatically jumps up to the top by itself, so I don't get to see what I've already written after I've typed it. Now, I can stop, scroll down, and then I can see what I've written, but I have to stop and scroll to do that. For instance, when I finish typing the "s" in thismy screen jumped up so that the last visible thing was the end quote after "Nobody said Ben"

What about you, SDW?  Explorer?  I use Firefox or anything but Explorer, but a copy is installed and I"ll check it out.  Plus, this may already be documented on the software's site, I'll check their bug list, too.  There's a section for Explorer-specific bugs.  Thanks, Microsoft!

Did I mention that if you install Ubuntu, the browser is Firefox!   Grin

Yeah, it happens to me as well using Explorer.  There are all sorts of issues on the SMF site regarding Explorer bugs.  The best fix is to click one of the following links and forget about Explorer.

Firefox
Google Chrome
Safari
Opera
