Losing to the Oakland Raiders has put a dampener on many this early in the season. It isnt panic time yet, but it could be argued the upcoming Eagles game is a must win. Even if it is not, we will know a lot more about what kind of team the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers are after this one.
Good news is, Big Ben is absolutely balling, playing some of the best football of his career so far. With Polamalu and Harrison expecting to be back this Sunday against the Iggles, hopefully we can get some dominance on defense again, something that was severely lacking in the Steelers two losses.
For the Oakland game, "congrats" to John Stephens for being the only person to pick the Raiders for a win, even though he was doing it in reverse psychology thinking, nonetheless, 1 point for you.
No one was even close in this one, but congratulations to SteelerMessican, closest by a margin of 11 points, earning himself 3 points.
3 way tie in second place went to SteelCityRoller, Blitzzburgh and GoldShoes68forHOF, each of which were 17 points off, earning themselves 2 points each.
Finally was myself, a distant 20 points off the score, but good enough to earn 1 point apparantly.
Congratulations again to SteelCityRoller, who as the name suggests, is rolling, having earned points in all three rounds so far, earning himself sole posession of 1st place.
