    This Is LeBeau's Defense When The Playmakers Aren't Healthy...

    Did they get a ton of sacks? No...

    Did they cause a bunch of turnovers? No...

    But...did they give up big plays? A big fat no...

    If the Steelers can play sound defense like they did for most of this game (Green-Ellis had some big runs, but still finished with an average less than 4 per carry) and maintian their gaps, they will be able to survive until Harrison is playing better and Polamalu is healthy...

    In the past a guy like Gresham would gash us. Timmons played well against him.

    Timmons played well again, finishing with 11 tackles.

    This is true. Wasn't he the AFC leader in receiving yards?

    1. @ BAL 5-70-0
    2. v. CLE 7-58-1
    3. @ WAS 9-183-1
    4. @ JAX 6-117-1
    5. v. MIA 9-65-1
    6. @ CLE 7-135-2
    7. v. PIT 1-8-1

    One of these things is not like the other...

    After the disaster that was last week, you've got to give Ike props for last night. A.J. Green is 10 times the player that Kenny Britt is, but Ike bounced back from a historically bad performance against Britt to helping to eliminate Cincy's top weapon in a huge division game.


    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.

    How much better did Ike play, vs. how much was simply the difference in him having safety help over the top? I'd say the safety help was MOST of the difference, and how we should play the top WR each week.
