Thoughts on the Steelers game and week 11 power rankings




Since tonight's game does not have any impact on the power rankings I will post them today. However, I will start with thoughts on the Steelers game

1. The defense: The Steelers defense absolutely dominated the Raiders and DMAC. We had 6 sacks and 3 turnovers. The standouts were: Troy Polamalu, Deebo, James Farrior. The people who quietly had good games were: Ike Taylor, Ziggy Hood, Lawrence Timmons, and Lamaar Woodley

2. Big Ben: Ben had by far his best game of the season as he looked efficient and made good scrambles when necessary. 3td and no turnovers.

3. Mike Wallace: Another game and another 100 rec yds and 1 td game for Mike Wallace. He is making me forget about Bluntonio and is quickly becoming one of the best WR's in the NFL

4. Antonio Brown and Manny Sanders: Ben made big throws at big times to both of these youngsters. Manny Sanders made a beautiful diving catch into the endzone. Brown also looks like an excellent PR

5. Bruce Arians, Dick Lebau, Sean Kuger, and Mike Tomlin: All four of these coaches had great games. BA called a very diverse game. Lebau dialed up blitz after blitz after blitz. Sean Kuger got a patchwork O-line to play great. Mike Tomlin got these guys fired up for this game.
