Checking in from another sunny day in the south. Numerous players out today, especially on the defensive side of the ball. No Minkah, Leal, Sutton, Watt, Edmunds, ‘Spoon, Wallace, Muth,  etc.

Probably Brady’s last game in Pittsburgh. Look for more of the same.

TB 35

Steelers 17


    Next - Minkah, #39!

Kenny Pickett looking sharp early.

Man, that O-line, though... loss for Najee in the backfield on our first run.

Kenny Pickett's first TD pass! That was a great looking drive, aided by a dumb TB roughing the passer.

Pickett looked SHARP with excellent decision-making. Johnson made an acrobatic catch. The 4th down call was ballsy by Tomlin (and at 1-4, going for it was absolutely the right decision), and Warren pushed HARD behind the line to pick it up. 

Gotta be pleased with what we just saw.

Huge play by Myles Jack tipping that pass, preventing the TB TD and ultimately forcing the FG.

This is the first time I've seen Brady this year. He doesn't look very sharp (so far).

That was ugly. O-line blocked NOBODY on that sack.

Defense gettin' it done inside the 10 again. Bending, but not breaking so far. Nicely done.

Man, that 3rd down completion to Claypool was a DART. Perfectly located pass.

Brady looks pretty average (so far) today. 

This is the best the offense has looked all year. Solid performance so far. Keep it up.

It'll be interesting to see how pickett progresses.   So far he's been looking better, but he's not yet seeing the whole field.   Curious about the second half.

Tampa looks straight pedestrian

Kinda funny that I feel like the offense is clicking a little, yet we have only 103 total yards (62 passing).

Brady "scolding" his O-line seems petulant more than "leadership"

Wow, I can't remember the last time we had a big kick return!

Need to turn this into a TD.

Wow. That was lame. Wasted opportunity. Crap play calling.

When they caught him from behind on the kick return, you kinda knew... this is gonna end up with 3 instead of 6.

Sigh - Pierre called for holding while he was in a headlock. Nice.

Man... just inept play on offense. No threat anywhere. Trubisky just has no spark.

Good job, Trubisky to Pickens. That was a big 3rd down conversion.
