    What do you think - Moore as MVP?

    I think this guy has a legit shot at it. He came in as a 3rd string and substituted wonderfully when Parker and Mendy went down. Even more, he's helped spark the RB receiving game that has been sorely lacking from our playbook.

    You could argue others such as Ben, Troy, Harrison, or Woodley, but I think no guy has stepped up as much and made as much of an individual difference as Moore has.

    What do you think?

    is it possible they change the ROY award to "newcomer of the year"?

    As much as I admire what he has done, I vote first for Harrison. He has single-handedly changed the outcome of some of our close games. The SD game comes to mind as the most recent. Mewelde has been big this season, no doubt about it - but James has been HUGE. I do think that the dump off option that Moore has brought to the table has helped out our OL as well as Big Ben, so a definite thumbs up there!

    The only way this might happen if Parker's injury keeps him out or with limited action for the remainder of the season and Moore gets us to the Super Bowl. But I think this team's engine is the defense and I have to agree with my compadres that it will be either Harrison or Polamalu.

    It definitely should be a defensive player...but who?

    Harrison was team MVP last year, and he matched last year's sack total in this SIXTH game this season! He should set the team record for sacks in a season (if Woodley doesn't catch him first, that is!) You can't deny this guy's impact, even in terms of pure intimidation.

    Troy has shown the superhuman ability that we haven't seen in the past few seasons when he was dealing with nagging injuries. A couple of "did he really catch that?!?!" interceptions, a backwards tackle?!?!, and enough closing speed to make plays anywhere on the field.

    Woodley was the one major change to the defense (becoming the Kevin Greene to James Harrison's Greg Lloyd), and his double digit sacks, plus 3 fumble recoveries and an interception has truly made a difference in forging a defense that is #1 in overall yards, #1 in rushing yards, #1 in passing yards, and #1 in scoring.

    And that is not even getting into the importance a healthy Aaron Smith has had on the overall defense, the return of Ryan Clark from his splenectomy, the always rock-solid leader of the defense James Farrior, and how Ike has handled the other team's best WR's on a regular basis even when BMac and Deshea have been out for extended periods.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Hartwig anyone??? Came in and filled our BIGGEST hole. Its taken a while for the o-line to gel, but they're no longer THAT bad.

    OK, it was just a thought. Moore has definitely come in and done great. But I don't think MVP should be about "stepping it up". I think it should be about doing your job and doing it great. No one on the team has done that like Troy and Harrison. Since James got it last year, I'm going with Troy.
