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.

Wish I could share your optimism.

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.

Wallace was the 5th read on that play.
