Interesting note in today's USA Today.

Since LeBeau returned to be Pittsburgh's defensive coordinator in 2004, Pittsburgh is 11-1 against rookie QBs.

Lock.  It.  Up.

You know, I'm not quite sure. 

Was checking off the usual suspects in my head -- Flacco, Palmer, Sanchez, Rivers...can't come up with who did it.  Will have to look it up.

LOL. 

Andrew fucking Walter. 

He was 5 of 14 for 51 yards with no TDs and 1 pick.  That's almost as bad as Maddox' game against the Texans back in '03 or whenever the hell it was.  That was a horrific loss though.  Walter played like garbage, but escaped with a win.

Great trivia question.

They are now 12-1 with beating Gabbert.

 I thought the only loss was against Troy Smith (Ravens) in the last game of '07 when a lot of starters were rested.

You got me curious there.  It was another (nearly) Halloween Horror on 10-29-2006.  That woulda been Cowher's last season.

Ben tossed 4 INTs!  Both the Raiders and the Steelers were 2-5 after the game.

You are correct about the loss to Troy Smith, sir.  Guess that makes it two losses.

Looks like USA Today is slightly off.  Somebody e-mail those clowns and tell 'em to get their facts straight!

So, did they just miss that game started by Smith or did they inadvertently give them a win when it shoulda been a loss?

Either way, 11-2 or 12-2, I like those odds.  That's a trend I'll follow.  I will say though, Dalton might be one of the best, if not the best, rookie QB they've faced in that timeframe.  I've watched chunks of several of their games (*shudder*) and have to admit to being impressed with his performance.  He's flying under the radar a bit because Newton is making such a big splash in Carolina.  Palmer refusing to play when he was there might end up being the best thing to happen to that team in awhile; might've even saved Lewis' job too.

Wow, 14-0 in the 1st quarter with 2 3-and-outs for the Bengals.  Unexpected but it's early, the Steelers have jumped out to nice leads before ...

Not sure why Troy didn't jump there.
