Mewelde Moore carried the rock 17 times, for 99 yards. How about that? Way to go MM!

Other interesting stats:

Nate Washington: 6 catches for 94 yards and a TD
Heath Miller: 5 for 45 and a TD.

Man its good to see HM getting the ball thrown to him, and Nate showed up big tonight.

Lamar Woodley: 6 solo tackles and 2 sacks. I swear he had three...

James Harrison: 1 sack, 1 FF. The man just loves separating the ball from the QB in Primetime, don't he?

And one sad stat: Santonio Holmes: 3 PRs for 15 yards. The experiment is over... Let's not risk him anymore. I was all for giving this a try, but now its not paying dividends and seems like an unnecessary risk...

I'm beginning to think the same way. He has looked less than ordinary back there and on one return tonight he actually came to a complete stop and was standing there looking down field before trying to find a crease...horrible.

I say put Moore back there.

Agreed... but only if he is NOT our starting RB for that week...

We have to keep inserting Moore into the line-up regardless whether Willie is healthy. This, I think is the one-two punch we'll need to grind it out. How can we not keep throwing to Heath. The guy just makes plays, and has such soft hands. But I think that with Moore back there we have finally a legitimate passing threat out of the backfield. This only adds a dimension we really need in our offense.

I have seen some nice moves by Moore the last 2 games especially the last run tonight where he bounced out to the outside and when it looked like he was going out of bounds he busted to the inside. I was pleasantly surprised to see that type of running from the Steelers. Usually with FWP once he busts to the outside it's a given he is looking to run out of bounds. I said it earlier give me MOORE.

This stat is really amazing. Through his career, Fred Taylor has killed the Steelers. It was nice to finally shut him down.

What's funny is that some don't think Moore is a capable starting back but I believe this the the first time that he has started that he DIDN'T get over 100 yards. To me that is pretty damn impressive. His biggest problem is he is always behind a higher profile name back and he has gotten hurt when he's had some chances. I was very happy when we signed him although I forgot about our team rule of not being able to throw to a back. :HeadBanger It is nice to see that we are starting to break that rule. I only hope it keeps up when FWP comes back. Contrary to the opinion of some he can also catch ... but only if you throw him the ball. :wink:

Like many of us have said since Day 1 you do not get enough out of punt returns to risk holmes. Big deal that instead of 8 yards we get 5 yards. The difference is just one short FWP run and definitely not losing out biggest deep threat for any length of time.

Just catch the ball, don't fumble and get the offense on the field.

The upcoming 2009 draft better be OL, DL and return specialist (later rounds). That's all I'm asking Santa this year.

I have faith... I hung out with Steeler Jesus when I was at Heinz last Monday Night. He told me to "Have Faith," and to please ask Jigawatt to stop sending him explicit emails regarding ejaculate, err I mean, immaculate conceptions. :lol: :lol: :lol:

No love for Russell? He didn't run too bad himself. :)

And Moore is flat out impressive. IMO...he should be our #2 RB at this particular point.

It looks like they gameplaned against his cutback move, which is really where he killed the Steelers in years past. He tried it at least twice on Sunday, that I counted anyway, and TP was waiting right there for him, patient and trailing the play, instead of overpursuing with the linebackers.

i liked what i saw from russell on sunday night a lot. man that guy has some serious potential. i didnt realized how quick he is. it looks like he dropped a few pounds from last year. i agree moore should be the #2 rb. mendenhall better do something next season or he might not be needed

Moore is a more complete back than Willie is. He has better vision to find an opening and way better hands.
I believe he is not far behind Willie in the speed department either.

As much as I've been singing Moore's accolades, I have to admit that the brief look we had of Russell, he impressed me as well. Not so much as what he yielded in terms of production but more so his running style. The quick peddling motion reminded me of The Bus. That was the hallmark of Bettis, not only a great engine and the big body to complement, but the quick feet that seemed to never stop churning. I think that with these two discoveries, it would be such a disservice to go back to what we've been doing since FWP became the feature set RB in our backfield. I've been screaming for diversity behind Ben. I hope we continue to explore our talents back there. It seems that the FO found themselves another FA that has all the characteristics of a man of Steel. A little blurb from an article where Moore was interviewed taken from Steelers.com....

“I am really happy about it,” said Moore. “It’s definitely something I have been waiting for. I have been waiting for an opportunity. I have been waiting for the challenge to present itself and try to make the most of it. And we got a win out of it so I am really happy.

Moore set the standard early when on the first play of the game he went up the middle for a 19-yard gain and continued to make huge contributions throughout.

“I have a lot of plays in me,” said Moore. “My offensive line and wide receivers did a great job of blocking downfield. That’s where it starts. Them believing and trusting I was going to get it done, you could see it up front as they were moving guys around for me.

“The expectations never change from Willie to Mendenhall to me. The standard of expectation doesn’t change here. The thought is not only do we know you are going to do it, but you have to do it. We went out there and got it done as a team.”

There was just one minor thing that didn’t get done. Moore had 99 yards, falling just one short of getting a 100-yard game. But, he isn’t complaining.

“It would have been like icing on the cake,” said Moore. “A win and 99 yards, the win is my extra yard. I am satisfied with the win. I am satisfied with what we accomplished as a team.”


All about "team"... a true Steeler guy.

lets not go crazy now. i like moore a lot but better vision? if fwp played sunday night he would of had just as good of a game if not better. the holes that moore had any rb could of found. the run blocking was the best it has been all year. moore is a better receiver than fwp is, that i will agree with

The question is that when FWP comes back who is deactivated on game day? I hope it is Carey Davis or Dookie. Please do not put Russell on the bench again Try to give him about 10 carries per game and I think we will see a solid player blossom before our eyes.

they would definetly dress russell over dookie. i would be suprised if moore isnt returning kicks and punts once fwp is back. davis is a fb and even though mchugh is a better blocker i think he would be active. i dont see what tomlin sees in davis.

Yea, really. Can we please get off this "<<insert name here>> is a more complete back than Willie Parker is . . . WTF, if 1500 yards rushing is the product of a non-complete running back, I'll take it. I thought we were over this after the Richard Mendenhall crap. None of them are bad, but if they were all better than a guy who averaged around 1400 yards over three season, then they would be doing a lot better than being a backup.

Since the beginning of FWPs tenure, I've been a supporter of his certain talent. But after SB XL I realized that in order to be truly successful in this league our offense need to follow suit with what the rest of the NFL has done... backfield by consensus. Look at the wear and tear that LT and Westbrook have now started manifesting due to the over dependancy of their respective offenses on their particular "single" talents. Having differing backs give us dimension while keeping our depth. I love FWP, but Moore can surely help us in other avenues because he brings a different skillset to the table. Let's not be obtuse to the idea that both of these backs could co-exist. Noteworthy is the G-Men's run through the playoffs last season... not only under the will of a revamped and focused Eli Manning but by presenting a nasty running game that had two varying entities (Jacobs and Bradshaw). How effective were we in 2005 when Parker shared time with Bettis?
