That was an ugly, UGLY win. UGLY.

Thank goodness for the 12 Bears penalties for 135 yds. They were their own worst enemy.

And we were ours. Man, what HORRIBLE mistakes late. That 4th quarter was putrid.

Lucky to get the win. It Thank goodness we didn't have to play without Boswell this week.

It never should've been that close. Matt Canada's offense, the offensive line and the receivers regressed tonight.

Reporter asking ben, "Friermuth has some big catches - how confident are you in his abilities?"

Ben:  "Pretty confident - but he's still a rookie  (smirk)"

"Coach called a lot of sweeps tonight, he must have seen something I didn't"

And Garrett has played 1 more game than Watt.

F--- you, NFL Network!  Laugh

These guys don’t realize it is not Ben. It is the online and receivers. Our offense is Ben, Najee and Muth.

As frustrated as I am with this game, I'm glad to get the win. It's way better to win ugly than lose pretty.

It's hard to stack 4 wins in a row in the NFL, no matter who the competition is. Gotta go try for #5 in a row next week.

Detroit is winless. I don't expect it will be any easier against them than it was against the Bears tonight. This Steelers team has many problems. Nonetheless, we're 5-3, in second place and solidly in the playoff hunt. Lots of work to do, for sure. But I'll take the win and quit griping about it.

62,129 yards.  #7.   The Steelers.

Nice, thanks for posting.

 Agreed. Ben did his job. 2 TDs, no INTs. He played what was called. 

I saw his postgame, he said he didn't know why Matt Canada called so many end arounds. It's not his show to run, he just has to be a soldier.

However, he's still fully capable of still being the general, IMO. Matt Canada needs to get his head out of his @$$ and run plays that allow his O-line to succeed. He did this against Cleveland. But he was all over the map tonight. No flow on offense, no identity. Thank goodness for the short field, Bears mistakes and $#!tty officiating which, for once, broke in our favor.
