    Lewis has a great game with the exception being that one (legit) PI penalty. The other was a truly beautiful play and a series of other nice plays both in coverage and in run support.

    That was a fabulous play. Really a shame that call got made. Took away from the credibility of the game.

    An elite player doesn't make every play...

    no, but if Keenan Lewis wants to see his prediction of going to the Pro Bowl come true he needs to make that play...

    Post-Giants thoughts

    SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 04, 2012

    The Steelers didn't necessarily need a signature victory at this point in the season, but they got one Sunday against the Giants.

    By beating the defending Super Bowl champions on the road, the Steelers announced their presence with authority to the rest of the NFL.

    The Steelers are a team to be reckoned with.

    And the Steelers didn't just win this game; they dominated it.

    Holding that offense to 182 total yards and 13 points is the kind of effort you can hang your hat on.

    If not for some questionable defensive penalties - a pass interference on Keenan Lewis and a supposed helmet-to-helmet hit call on Ryan Clark in the end zone - the Steelers would have given up less than that.

    More importantly, the Giants had three possessions in the fourth quarter and went three-and-out in all three.

    @ Speaking of Keenan Lewis, he played yet another outstanding game.

    Everyone has been talking about who the Steelers need to re-sign this offseason as they head into free agency.

    Lewis might now be at the top of that list.

    Keenan Lewis has 15 passes broken up after 8 games.

    If he keeps that pace and gets to 30, he should make the probowl even without high INT numbers.

    Revis had 31 in 2009. Other than that, the next highest number was 27 by Sheldon Brown back in 2005, and a few people with 24 and 25 scattered in throughout those years.

    The defense played well, but Eli is the type of quarterback that the Steelers defend better than any other. He isn't a check down, 3 or 5 step drop and get rid of it quarterback, like Brees and Rogers. Brees and Rogers would in all likelihood have pretty good days against this defense. Ryan, Flacco, Manning (Eli), Shaub (for the most part), even Brady and others that don't get rid of the ball within 3 seconds or less are the quarterbacks that the Steeler defense can feast on. The quarterbacks that get a good pre-snap read, take 3-5 step drop and get the ball out of their hands are the ones that cause the Steeler defense the most trouble. Unfortunately, those are the guys that they will have to defend in the playoffs (well, maybe not Brees, but I think the Saints will get in).

    I'm still not sold on the defense as reliable to hold a lead. The offense needs to continue to dominate the time of possession (even if they aren't scoring a boatload of points) to keep the defense off the field as much as possible and give the opponent a long field, where long drives are necessary and mistakes may be made.

    I would tend to agree with what you are saying. Unless we consistently get to the QB we will have problems.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
