    The Unofficial Steelers vs Eagles Game Thread

    How do Nation! Welcome to the 3rd installment of the season. The Eagles and Steelers both have players missing and looks to even out. The big question of the day is the OL, will it protect Ben and keep him healthy? We all know my answer is no, but what is your answer, and why? As usual we hope for a solid game, and no major injuries to anyone on both teams. This is a game, someone has to win, someone has to lose.

    CIN just scored...10-7 over Gmen

    Howdy ho, Rick.... Since our game is a late one, I'm stuck watching the Bungles with Brenda... They are obviously thier usual selves... But not really "sucking" as bad as usual. But hey, it's still the first half! .... Carson is having an issue with his previously broken nose... It won't stop bleeding.
