Why don't they bench him!!!!!!! ___________________________________________________________________________ Subject: No pressure on Kitna, bungle receiver WIDE open, TD From: Tank McGee [email protected]
Our pass rushers are being manhandled so far. If the receivers are going to be that wide open without a blitz, then what the hell, blitz every down.Because he provides the all-important "veteran leadership".Admittedly
Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to terms with LB James Farrior on a five-year contract that is worth about $16.5 million. The deal includes a $4.5 million signing bonus and is expected to be signed within the next few days Great move. Far and away the best player last season.Great news. to
Hines' foot was less than indisputable. I TiVo'ed the game and watched that play over and over again - about 50 times - and I still can't tell whether or not he touched Hines' foot or if he touched it after Hines' had possession of the ball.Eh. Like you said, getting the TD anyway was a terrific salve for that bad call. And to be honest, I can see how they made the call. He did touch his foot, because you can see Hines foot move in response to being touched. My question was did Hines have the ball before or after his foot got touched?you must have better eyes than me
39;t imagine it being broken now that it's at 13. How many seasons have 13 game win streaks with ANY qb? Not many. maybe 1 every year?Good point ..this rookie record could stand for the entire century.The future is always obscured. (putting on my best medium voice) But really, the TD record could easily get broken. All the NFL has to do is decide that they want more touchdowns and change the rules again, like they did this year to benefit Peyton. (I'm not saying that they changed the rule to benefit Peyton, but merely that changing the rule DID benefit Peyton and

: And another. DT Int for TD.
See you *can* send the TE deep, Arians!Hey, another TD to the TE -- you getting this, Arians?!?Did you guys not see the stats? Miller has more than Heap this year.I *did*, actually. I was a little surprised at that, because I sure don't remember any in the last 8 games or so. But Heap probably surpassed him today, with his two TD catches.Yeah, but I'd be shocked if you found that anything came from a *deep*
route designed for the TE.
Miller's longest catch so far this year is 41 yards. It was a five
yard pass with 36 YAC in the KC game.
Damn that was woefully short. Can Batch come in? MikeCDunno if the calls for Batch should start yet but Wilson had 6 if that ball was to him in stride.I would rather rest Ben (and his thumb, knees) for later on, say last two games of the season before the playoffs. Right now we could easily beat Chi, and that missed TD opportunity magnifies how easy since we are running roughshod over them, get Batch in and rest Ben for bigger better things. MikeC
They're keeping it close in K.C. 21-17 .I liked his TD in the preseason against Dallas .a good decoy I thought.A good player we had. Maybe cut him to soon. The King lives.Fans wanted him. Cowher calculated that they they could get him to the taxi squad. Genius at work, once again.Naaah, Cowher knew the fans liked him so he had to go. MikeC

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05060/464491.stm Farrior also Restructures. This is actually a good deal for the player in most cases, but still it's good to know that the Steelers have so many guys who are willing to negotiate to help the team. As opposed to the dime-a-dozen mercenary players.Seems maybe the Steelers really ARE a close team and want to actually win a championship. This is a refreshing chance to the mostly "Me First" generation that currently dominates the headlines. Well done to James Farrior. Eric in CA GO STEELERS!!!!!!!Corrected copy. ED
wonder even more about a previous post regarding the spread and gambling. The only difference it makes is for those who bet the Chargers and the points. I'm not generally into conspiracy theories, but this one makes you go hmm. Troy was robbed, he had a fumble recovery and took it back for the TD and the stats should say so. I wonder if it affects anything in his bonuses for the year. In any case, Troy was amazing tonight. That INT earlier in the game was a thing of beauty. The best pure athlete on the team, and one of the smartest defensive players in the game. I'm
STEELERS FINALLY TAKING OUT ALL THE GARABE!! HARRISON / .AFTER FARRIOR.. COLBERT IS A JACKASS WHO CAN'T MANAGE THE BOOKS PATSIES CHOKED !
Brady hasn't failed to deliver all season.Wait for it TD NE. Just like I said.ROTFLMAO . I waited for it just like you said John. No doubt about it. MikeCWas there the least bit of doubt about what was about to happen?The thing that *kills* me, is that we match up very well with the Patriots. But it's like we're afraid of our own shadow when it comes to the offense. We can't afford to trade FGs for TDs in
I dont know what the commentators are smoking. They seem confused about the possession. It was so obvious it wasnt a TD by Hines Ward. His ass CLEARLY hits the white area before he gets possession. But then again, face mask would have put them close to the goal line and 1st and goal.I agree, HW's butt was down before he had poss. Throw a post route to HW to make up for it. MikeC
horrible. It wasn't that high and it came down around the 20 yard line, and was returned to the Bengals' 48. That gave the Bengals excellent field position, so the Bengals only needed 52 yards for a TD. Maybe they only get a field goal otherwise, or don't score at all. I'm surprised the announcers didn't say anything about how bad a kick it was. There goes the season. If Reed kicks it to the goaline, then maybe the Steelers are 5-7 and still in the hunt in the crappy AFC North.Heh. As a matter of fact one of the first things Cowher just said in his PC was that they
'm no steeler fan (since it seems hip to declare your non-alliances).I'm not a fan of either team either. Just a football fan hoping to see a good game. I hate to see games decided on refs calls though. Pittsburgh got both of the big calls in the first half. The Seattle TD that got called back for offensive interference was a really ticky-tacky call too. I wish the NFL would either go to a method where defensive backs and recievers can't touch one another at all or let them play. As it is, PI seems to always come down to a judgement call. Plus if they used the
They gave it to the ratbird, who admittedly is a terrific defender. Ed Reed. 20 first place votes, James Farrior, 16.It shoulda been Troy Brown.
level just as his contract ended. Although I will say that he does bring extra things to the table such as scheme calls and such. I'd like to see the team draft another inside linebacker this coming offseason to groom as his replacement down the line.I think it was a good signing. Farrior accepted less than he would have commanded on the open market. He's obviously a team guy, and very passionate about the Steelers. And the whole defense was worse last year with Polamalu out. When you have a guy like Troy behind you making the kind of plays he can make, that allows you
Hines Ward overtakes John Stallworth to become the #1 leader in TD receptions! Cant wait to see him kick the Cowboys' asses in Super Bowl XLII on his way to a 2nd Super Bowl MVP award!!!!Ward is super. But I wouldn't crown the Steelers just yet. Wait and see what happens next week. John
