Like always the atmosphere at the game was awesome. And I wasn't even there. Then Andre Frazier got hurt. Ten minutes later the fans are still crazy. Now Frazier has a spine injury and I am assuming that he is done for the year not career threating, but maybe season. But this game was emotional throughout. The defense played great I think. Again keeping the Steelers in the game. It was not perfect, allowing frusterating completed passes, but we have all gotten used to this. Every D-Lineman played outsanding: Aaron Smith played hard and other then that Flacco escape, he played solid. He and Troy hold this D together. Hokey and Kirscke filled in nicely and I DO NOT miss Fats Hampton. All linebackers played sweat and exciting. Harrison loves monday nights Woodly is gonna be good. Foote really stepped it up (He see's Timmons over his shoulder.). What else can you say about these backers!!! Now the D-Backs were shaky, but held their own in the clutch. Troy had a blunder, probally played his worst game this year, but that is not saying alot since his first 3 games were amazing.
Now offense, well I will not point out the obvius O-Line problems, but they did play better with Simmons out. (By the way when Simmons went out I cheered with joy. Hey good guy, but man when do you take the guy out. 4+years of sucking?). Now I also don't want to say much about the Offense, so I will just mention so good things and bad ones.
Ben sucked in the first half, you can blame most on him some on line. He came through on one play to Holmes (which capped off an amazing comeback.) But Arians calls at the goaline are just stupid. Why run with Moore at the goaline. Throw to Heath Miller or Spaeth or even McHugh!!! Miller is 6-5 - Spaeth is freaking 6-7!!! Arians is an idiot. Mendy out= that sucks.
McHugh made some sick blocks. He is a good H-Back. Berger didn't punt good. As I said a while back a punter is very important when your team is struggling and need good field position. Patrick Bailey!!!! I knew it this dude is a special special teamer. He made like three tackles and has four in just two games. Also Madison was good on ST too.
Finally Jeff Reed is one of the best kickers in the NFL. He is one of my favorite Steelers also. What a nail-biter though i had a feeleing we would pull out a W. Was it a bad sign we had a nailbiter against the Ravens? Well its a rivalry and it should be tough but maybe not that close. I wonder what will happens when we play the Cowboys, Colts or Patr-cheat-iots?
