A Win is a Win... Sort Of


Ok The Steelers finally got their first win of the season but, lets not get too cocky. The Steelers beat a team in which is not fully developed nor fully gelled. The New York Jets are still trying to find out what they have in Geno Smith. Geno is a solid quarterback but he has been very inconsistent.

Let us take a look at some of the positives before I begin to break down what I feel os still wrong with this ball club. The defense played an incredibly physical game. This season it has been a rarity for the Steelers to tackle well and make stops on third down. They were able to do that against the Jets, Troy Polamalu's hit on Stephen Hill set the tone of the game. That hit said " This is our game and you can not do anything about it". The Steelers's defense was able to keep Geno under constant pressure and make him uncomfortable for the duration of the game. The offense played a little better this week. Ben was Ben for the first time this season. Sure he was a little banged up but when isn't he. When Ben Roethlisberger isn't getting sacked then we have a problem. Ben is a quarterback whom takes his time to throw the football. He is at his best when he improvises. He was able to come up with big plays through out the day including the long touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders.

Other that what I have said in the past the Steelers still have their kinks. They still have not learned how to run block or even block in general. Moving Mike Adams to the bench however was a good thing. Mike Adams was a weak link on the Ofensive Line and had to be moved. There was a little bit of a run game but not enough to really get exited about. Felix Jones had some okay runs and Le'veon Bell I believe will never be a feature back in the Steelers's system. As far as some personnel groupings go the Steelers have made a step in the right direction with this win. Let's just hope it is not too late.
