I'm hoping we'll see better from DD on 3rd downs vs. the Tits.

No question that our O is much better with Ben. But as a guy who looks for positives, it did seem like Dixon found the right guy on some of those incompletions (but generally underthrew him). Now that he's got a win under his belt, I hope Dennis doesn't out think himself when he's throwing the ball.

Winning the opener was huge for us. I feel like we can get 1 win over Ten/Tampa/Balt. Thankfully, the two better teams are running O's, so our D should keep us in the games.

We'll need to pull for Cincy this weekend so both them and the Ravens are 1-1 going into week 3 (with us hopefully 2-0).

He'll have to be better or it could be a long game for the Steelers.
