Well, here goes nothin'.  Pi_bigsmile

Glad to see the Browns get mauled by the Cardinals. Unfortunately, Baltimore and Cinci both won handily. 

Oh, well. We need to take care of our own bid'ness tonight. Go win this mutha.  Pi_sharpteeth

F-ing false start... at home. Trai Turner.  Eyes 

Turns 3rd and 4 into 3rd and 9, then a throw 3 yards shy of the sticks resulting in a 3 and out.

Nice 3-and-out by the defense. Rookie Trai Norwood with a great hit. I'll take it.  Thumbsup

O-line...  Eyes

Dan Moore Jr. @ left tackle =  swinging gate.  Embarassed He didn't get a hand on the guy. Ben did a nice job of evading the sack, but it's punt time again.

Minkah is a damn fine tackler.

Watt got in there on 2nd down and hit Geno's arm as he was trying to throw. 

Of course, as soon as I say Minkah is a fine tackler, he misses and gives up a big 3rd down play.

Agreed. Seattle defense is vulnerable against the pass. Make it happen, cap'n.

Yes, he has been very solid this year.

Steelers show run and they show past they need hide it.
Play action. Or something.

Agreed. We're wasting time and possessions. 

What is it about this offense? On 3rd a 6, we do one of 2 things: Throw a 2-yard pass and get stuffed, or throw a 40-yard bomb to no one. 

What is Canada's aversion to calling an 8-yard pass past the sticks?

Nice swarming defense on 1st down to blow up that screen.

I've got to say... that was a pretty lame first quarter of football. Boring AF. Two teams that don't seem to want to win. Pretty frustrating so far.

The Steelers NEED this game. They'd better wake the F up, because a 0-0 tie with Seattle missing Russell Wilson and their top 2 RBs is a victory for the Seahawks.

If he didn’t have to make so many.....

TJ was all OVER that. He was gonna batt that down from the start. That was kinda wild. He was roaming behind the D-line just waiting for it.

My feed is running about 30 seconds behind. 

Nice grab by Ebron to convert.  Thumbsup

Followed by another 1 yard run. 

Ben's pump fake is still amazing (as per Collinsworth)

Oooooo... tip drill. That was scary!

We need to get 6 here... yet we also need to not force it. No turnovers.
