Breathe in, breathe out, repeat. It will be okay. It was only Game One. It was a Road Game. Silverback was out, Ryan Clark was out, Rashard Mendenhall was out. Ben Roethlisberger had the ball in hand and a chance to drive for the win. True, it was not pretty but it could have been so much worse. These things we will repeat daily until the next game, and we will feel better.
When they fell behind 16-6 late in the 3rd quarter, I held little hope for a Steeler victory. The offense looked inept and the defense could not get off the field on 3rd down, no matter how great the distance.
Am I a jaded sports fan? Perhaps. But if we stick to the facts we see two acts of possible assholery. Does anyone even wonder if there could be an NFL next season if Roger Goodell suspended all the assholes?
This isn’t about the team physician recommending that Ben Roethlisberger sit out the Ravens game; rather, it’s the next opponent on the schedule. And friend, the Oakland Raiders are just what the doctor ordered.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have walked a strange path so far this season. They started with a victory over their 2008 nemesis, the Titans of Tennessee.
Former NFL journeyman quarterback and Super Bowl winner Trent Dilfer recently ranked the QBs active in the NFL today. I’m shocked by the results.
It’s finally here, the first preseason game of the year. Those Red Birds from Arizona travel to Pittsburgh for a little backups-and-practice-fodder on backups-and-practice-fodder action. No holds barred and no camp body spared.
