    The prevailing opinion after the preseason was that he had a lot of athleticism and a good motor but needed to add a bit of bulk and get stronger. I would had liked to see what he could do after ...

    It would be interesting how the Steelers typically spend the night before a home game vs. on the road. The Steelers have significant road woes that seem to go beyond the fan base. In NY, the crowd...

    I think that Thomas needs to play more than 2 consecutive plays without suffering an injury before he is worthy of a nickname.

    I understand that the Jets have a stout defensive line, but I was pretty shocked that they didn't attempt a sneak with the ball inches from the goal line and a 250 lb qb. The outside run to Blount...

    He also smoked Timmons. And embarrassed Brice McCain. I'm not a fan of Vick at all, but he is still a very good athlete.

    Post-Ravens Hangover?

    Hangover is probably the wrong word, but I read that the Steelers are 1-5 in their last 6 games following a Ravens game. The win was Carolina, where they had extra rest.

    I'm not a big fan of the smack talk, and even less so when it comes from a guy like Mitchell who does nothing to back it up. He just looks foolish. And it would be nice for the guy to come up with...

    This one is mostly on the players. As many have mentioned above, 4 turnovers are really hard to overcome. Nobody made Ben lob a ball over the middle off his back foot with no pressure.

    In the base defense, I agree. On passing downs, however, I think the Steelers could create a lot of havoc using packages with Harrison, Jones, Worilds and Timmons all on the field at the same time.

    McCain in particular has played much better than I thought he would. These two have really stepped up. Long term, I'd still prioritize improving the secondary with a premium pick (or two) but these...

    Yup. The Harbaugh's are both that way. Can't stand either one of them.

    Suggs is a cheap, dirty player. Doesn't surprise me that he plays that way when you look at what he does off the field:

    I wouldn't mind seeing a few plays against the Ravens with Adams in the game as a blocking TE. Gives you a nice option to run with Bell or some extra time for a deep pass to Bryant.
