    Can't be true, Wallace wouldn't have lost focus during games.

    We were 6-3 when he got hurt (then lost 5 of the next 6 games).


    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.

    Either way Ben looked good before the injury.

Was it my eyes or were the swarm of bees on the field distorting my vision.
    Your eyes saw correctly. Leftwich attempted 13 deep balls (far above the avg for the season) and completed 4.
