We just beat a team that blew them off the field last week.
Honestly, this says more to me about the Steelers than the Pats. When was the last time you saw the Pats D get this much pressure on ANYONE? The Steelers offensive line is in shambles and Hines Ward is INCREDIBLY valuable to them. Those are the top two things I draw from this game.
The Steelers looked pretty bad against the Bengals aswell.
Perhaps the Steelers are overrated.[/QUOTE]
The Steelers are definitely over rated. Like 'Austin' says above, their O line is in total shambles cause of serious injuries. Right now Flozell Adams is their best lineman, that's like saying Oliver Perez is our best starting pitcher. and missing Hines Ward tonite also didnt help..
[QUOTE=rextilleon;3819125]Watching the play is getting me depressed. Pittsburgh can't get any pressure on Brady and he is picking them apart. Doesn't bode well for us when we play in New England.[/QUOTE]
Steelers had a bad game, I'm surprised because they could have left the game the #1 NFL ranked team if they beat the Pats. The Pats offense while not as spectacular as they once were thought of having with Moss, might be a bit better because they will spread the ball. The thing with the Pats that I see is their O-line is one of the best in the league in Pass protection. Brady isn't getting hit as much as he did last year and Mankins is back in the lineup.
I think the Pats will make the playoffs, it's a race to the finish.
Lets be honest. That Gronowski TE killed the Steelers, cause like i said last week, the Steeler LB's are obese and sure they run fast......in the 1st half...then you can get some serious speed mismatches once they get winded.
Alge Crumpler owned them too on those run blocks.
They played better than the Steelers and that OLine stunk it up.
[QUOTE=HitSomeone41;3819131]Dallas looked pretty damn good today too.[/QUOTE]
AHAHAHAHHAHAHA ... so true. what a difference 6 days makes. Last week Cleveland spanked them and they were vulnerable. They beat pitt today on the road and they are unstoppable. They are the division champs not us. They're used to running away with this division by now. We're making this tough for them. There's no doubt about that.
