Ike played a tremendous game, if you take away the bone head penalty he was outstanding. And some you wanted to let him walk, it still puzzle me.

The only time Flacco threw his way was out of necessity and I don't believe he completed a pass to a receiver covered by Taylor. The penalty was dumb, but I applaud him for taking for his guys.

Yup, tough to win a game when your bright spots are a punter and one cornerback.

Casey was getting a great push up the middle most of the times I noticed him. Unfortunately he was the only player in the front 7 that was playing today. And that's what the difference was in this game.

Ward seemed to do his part as much as possible, as well.

Why would Flacco or any other QB throw to Ike's side when McFadden on the other side cant cover anyone and the free safety is limted in coverage as well?

I'd throw in Mike Wallace as a bright spot today as well. He showed he can get open and run routes other than the fly pattern.

That quick shot to him in the seam in the third quarter was a thing of beauty. Too bad Ben was afraid of his shadow by then, and threw it behind him. If it were a good pass, that would have been a TD.

I agree with Ike as a bright spot.

I think Brown also showed that he's going to be a weapon as a return guy. I'd be shocked if he didn't take one back this year.

Too many garbage yards on offense to give anyone a whole lot of credit. When it counted in the first half the offense was stagnant.

sepulvada did not get hurt!!

I noticed that he was wearing a heavy duty knee brace on his right (non-punting) leg, the one which had the ACL torn multiple times. He should continue to wear that for the rest of a career as a preventative measure.

Agreed Ike was the bright spot, didn't give Evans a touch! Brown looked good on Special teams, otherwise we were pi$$ poor, thankfully it's only one game! Keeps the Towels flying

I thought his hair looked nice when he was chasing the receiver into the end-zone on the TD pass play. 8)

Shades, it's good to see you back on the forum and participating. I was missing your sarcasm, wit and humor all delivered with the truth wrapped inside.

We only signed Shades to a one-year deal? We better franchise tag him next year.... 8)

YEs, I totally agree. He owned Birk. Unfortunately, Yanda destroyed Smith so many times that Casey's penetration didn't make much of a difference.

Hey! What about Ben. You take away the three [3] interceptions[2 of them in Bal's Redzone] , two [2] fumbles, the bobbled center snap that really caused Mendys fumble, that missed throw someone mentioned to Wallace, ehh! a couple other little things. Uhh! Other than that he had a pretty good day. No?

Looking at the GAMEBOOK I was surprised to see that the Steeler's dressed 7OL. But, Gilbert and Essex did not play. So actually the starting five played every snap since Foster and C. Scott were inactive. Gotta give them some credit for at least surviving. No?

Pappy said "I'd throw in Mike Wallace as a bright spot today as well. He showed he can get open and run routes other than the fly pattern."

Seriously though, quite a few posters mentioned Wallace. He quietly did 8 for 108. That is on pace for 1700+ yds. You know that 2000 goal he talked about that has never been done is really not unimaginable. Nahh! If someone ever got even close they would shut him out with double or triple coverages and it would be a huge liability to try and get him the ball. My first thought when he mentioned this was he should have kept quiet.

Wallace, Ward, Redmen and Miller are the only ones I felt earned their offensive paychecks.

This looks to me like a continuation of a more serious problem. We all thought the Super bowl was a fluke, but here we are in game one of the new season, and the OL looks bad, the defense looks old and slow (and Troy is healthy), and I hate to say it Ben made some very bad decisions with the ball resulting in numerous turnovers. Whatever is going on I hope they figure it out soon, or this is going to be a very long season.

I'd have to agree. Fortunately these guys seem to consistently perform well. 8)

This isn't an excuse, but Turrell Suggs owned every Steeler lineman in a bad way. Wherever he lined up he owned a Steeler and that's the facts. One guy, disrupted the entire offense, because no one could block him or even get in front of him at times. It was p1$$ poor, Kugler has to find a way to make lemonade out tomatoes at this point, that's how bad it was trying to block Suggs.
