For a week at least, Steelers fans may rejoice. The Steelers avoided starting 1-4 for the first time in the Bill Cowher era by walloping the Kansas City Chiefs 45-7 at Heinz Field.
What did we do well yesterday? Everything. We looked like the defending Super Bowl Champions on both sides of the ball. The defense held Larry Johnson to 26 yards on 18 carries, Big Ben threw his first two touchdowns of the season, Willie Parker amassed 100+ yards without taking an excessive pounding, and the receivers had a breakout day of sorts.
Pittsburgh now travels to Atlanta to face a Falcons team that has major issues on both offense and defense. Even though Warrick Dunn and Michael Vick ran for over 200 yards yet again, the offense managed a meager 14 points. That's inexcusable and indicative of an offense that doesn't know how to finish drives. The defense let Tiki Barber run wild in the second half. We took care of business at home, now it's time to do it on the road, in a dome against a team that rarely loses at home, let alone twice in two weeks.
Much more analysis and summary of yesterday's most impressive and needed win to come.
Let your happiness be known here!
