I'm surprised no one had started this thread yet, so I will.

Offense: Ben - He turned should-have-been sacks into first downs or touchdowns many times.
Defense: Ryan Clark and Ike Taylor - Set the tone and shut down 'Tone.
Special Teams: Dare I say it, Sushi with two early 40+ FGs.

Definitely Ben, spread the ball around to 10 receivers, QB rating over 120, masterful play. Heath and the Big Money three, along with tough tough Cotchery were big.

Lebow for the great adjustments and Timmons who was solid. But Clark was a rock.

I noticed David Paulson and Demarcus Van Dyke on ST's.

Demarcus Van Dyke has been a noticeable player two weeks in a row on special teams. Last week he down a punt at the 1, and this week he scared a fumble out of Kerley. He has been a solid pick up so far.

ST/ Shawn Suisham, give the man his do he is off to a solid start this season

Offense/ Ben is obvious, so Ill go a different way. Mike Wallace. For all the time Wallace missed, he looks awesome so far this year.

Defense/ Lamar Woodley. Woodley finally looks himself again

Clark deserved the game ball. He's fearless and put it all out there tonight as he usually does.

He's my choice as well. Also think he kept that the Jets from downing it at the 1 yd line, but Suisham made two field goals from 45+ yds and he was 3 & 9 last year from that range at Hienz Field so props to him

Also, he was either 100% or dang close to it for kicking it out of the end zone ... at sea level* this week, not Mile High!

* Edit: 1,223 feet above sea level!

Ryan Mundy for me today - thought he played a great game, disciplined and laid down a few tone setting shots.
Clark as well, good shots and great coverage. (he didnt seem too slow today)

Lawrence Timmons gets a game ball for this hit, Sanchez was never the same afterwards. however, James Harrison may get a three game suspension for it...

Dangerous hit though. Would hate to see someone lay that on Ben.

THAT PUNT BOUNCED OFF KERLEY'S MASK BEFORE vd HIT HIM

ALTHOUGH YOU CAN ARGUE THAT THE SPEED HE CAME DOWN, it forced Kerley to take his eye of the ball

Ben gets the game ball (since there should only be one). He was superior.

AB, Wallace, Starks, Woodley, Timmons, Heath, and Clark are honorable mentions.

The hit that Timmons put on Sanchez changed the game. Sanchez was not the same after that and LeBeau kept sending Timmons. That needs to happen every game.

Ryan Clark is a difference maker in this defense. That is why we need to get his replacement sooner rather than later so that we don't have a repeat of the Denver game with him out. Get a good young player in to learn from Clark.

Van Dyke has been a difference maker on Special teams. Great add by the front office. If Carnell can get him up to standards as a DB we just got a real steal.

My "totally random" game ball goes to Pope. He did a great job blocking yesterday and even had a nice catch. I was pleasantly surprised!

I'm going to go off the chart here

Offense - Haley
Defense - LeBeau

They both called great games.
