Wow, I'm too young to have a heart attack, but I swear I was close. All I can say is holy ****, that was razor close. Well, here it goes:
Mewelde Moore! Geez, and we didn't use this guy WHY? This is why we signed him - for his catching, and it finally showed! With some crucial yardage and first downs, he gets my vote. Congrats, Moore!
Big Ben: I was about ready to remove him entirely, but he definitely helped redeem himself. With a couple clutch passes, he brought us back to contention.
After that, it's a toss-up between Ward and Holmes, both who had very big catches in the second half.
WOODLEY!!!! I'm not going to lie, he may have won the game for us. 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and a TOUCHDOWN! And he's a rookie! He's quickly climbing my list in my favorite defensive players. He'll probably be second on my list to Troy P in no time.
Silverback! Once again, showing his dominance and giving Flacco his first real taste of the NFL.
Troy P: Didn't have an int, but (mostly) looked solid in coverage and in run defense.
Again, looked solid. Our return game could use some work, but we didn't give up huge yards to the other team. Reed, as usual, was Mr. Clutch.
Overall, I'm not going to lie, we still have problems. Arians still sucks, and I've seen nothing to prove otherwise. Our defense actually struggled in the running game, and while we got good pressure, our secondary gave up too many big plays. This could have easily been a loss.
Honestly, I think the entire Steelers team deserves a game ball. They fought through the injuries, showed a lot of heart in this game, and didn't give up. It's games like this that make me proud to call myself a Steelers fan. Way to go, guys!!!!
