Gotta give gameballs to:
E. Sanders - actually got open against the defense, made some good catches when all other WRs were silent.
R. Clark - brought it again today as he does almost every game. Outstanding plays in run support against Richardson, who is not an easy guy to bring down.
L. Timmons - I have dogged him in the past, but Timmons played a great game today.
D. Butler - had some good hang time and made Cribbs a non-factor.
No one on that field today deserves a game ball.

And I'd give Plax a shout out for coming in off the street and being old and representing himself well. Its gonna pay dividends in the future even if he's a decoy because teams will come up with a way to cover him because of his size.
There were definitely some good efforts on display out along with some really crappy ones.
Heath, Timmons, Keisel, Clark, Worilds, (most of the defense really) and I thought Butler did well. Although Timmons got burnt on that first pass and on the INT, had it not been tipped by Keisel he probably would have been burnt again.
The thought the Browns best players today were Mendenhall, Dwyer, Redman, and Batch.
Too bad we cut Baron Batch to pick up Hoyer, he wouldn't have fumbled.
Agree with Worilds, Harrison and Keisel, but not Plax. He failed to make a catch on an admittedly poorly thrown ball, but he should have come up with it. On the INT, he ran a sloppy route.

When a team is playing a game on the road with its No. 3 quarterback, itís going to need big plays in other phases to compensate. The Steelers got one of those plays from the combined efforts of Brett Keisel and Lawrence Timmons.
On the gameís first third-down situation, Keisel got his hands up to tip a pass from Brandon Weeden, and Timmons tracked down the ball, intercepted it, and returned it 53 yards for a touchdown. Adding in a team-leading 10 tackles, and Timmons is the Steelers Digest Player of the week.
Also considered were James Harrison, who had nine tackles and a sack; Ryan Clark, who had nine tackles; and Emmanuel Sanders, who caught five passes for 75 yards.
On the ball his missed, that might have been an impossible catch. But it did show me he can still get open. I'll give him a pass on the routes, timing, little things given he hasn't played in nearly a year after nearly 3 years off.

Game ball goes to ... oh, never mind, we don't have any game balls left, we gave them all to the Browns.:HeadBanger
