    The first half was ugly and the first quarter was scary bad as the Chiefs ran to the right 12 times or 62 yards in the first half. The first quarter was 8 runs to the right for 52 yards, so that leaves the second quarter at 4 runs to the right for 10 yards. I think you're letting the first quarter skew your perception of what actually happened on the field after the first quarter.

    I agree, the defense did a nice job of adjusting to the Chiefs run game. Not sure if people will open their eyes in regard to their perception of the game.

    Add me to that vote. The defense definitely stiffened in the 2nd half.... unlike me that went limp...(when Ben got knocked out of the game).
    For the football gurus on the board, i would be interested in your comments about the fine points of the adjustment that was made. it was still the same guys in there for the most part, so they were playing things differently. Did the Steelers bring safeties up to help because Cassell wasn't throwing downfield?

    You are right that the defense adjusted in the second half, and Ziggy Hood even had a few plays. Still, this was the second game where we've seen an opponent open by running right at Ziggy, with success. The Bengals did the same thing on their first drive. What concerns me is that I read somewhere (maybe from Kaboly?) that Ziggy didn't get double teamed once the entire game. If he can be handled by single blocking the Steelers are in for a rough week against the Ravens.

    I think it's schematic and the adjustment occurs afterward...I don't think that Ziggy suddenly goes from being dominated to playing well in the space of a quarter...

    Also, I watched Ziggy split a double-team...they replayed it on MNF and Gruden pointed it out...
