Define 'like' - because I don't think the Jets are putting 50+ points on anyone again.

Well, the Jets do play the Broncos later this year.  :-\

And once again the Steelers O-Line stunk up the stadium...  A win is a win, but man they gotta do something to get those dumbasses in gear.  Way too much pressure on Roethlisberger.  I will say it showcases what an outstanding QB he is though.

Uh yup. :(

Not that he did bad last night either, just that nobody had a foggy clue who he was, and given our line's abilities, I'd hate to go with anything less than Mendenhall who runs people over ala Bettis.  Any night Parker has a bad night, it's pretty easy to attribute it to his line as well.  Bah. >:(

I've not read the news yet to see what's up with the rest of our injuries to know who's likely to be back soon, I just know Mendenhall left with a bad shoulder.  He had a good night going though...  Had some real big runs and some good power through the pile now and then.  Reminded me of Bettis, who I greatly preferred over Parker.

I thought I heard Mendenhall was going on IR and done for the year

Damn, yup that's it for him.  Not sure when Parker's due back, but given the pounding he'll inevitably face, and his smaller stature, he'll not last without a competent back-up.

Mendenhall was kickin' some ass last night too.  That's gotta be disappointing for him.

I think its safe to say that having a fractured shoulder is dissapointing whether you're already having a good night or not.   ;)

Eh, injuries are injuries...  I think most players take them in stride unless they're career-threatening.  But it's the fact it was his first starting game, MNF, a season-ending injury.  He just has to be very disappointed in the turn of events as it really happened at a  ****** time.

Steelers signed Najeh Davenport (again), to fill in the rb spot (again).  Supposedly another will be signed but I didn't catch who if it was mentioned.

I think Davenport was the guy who pooped in his girlfriend's closet.

Indeed he was.  Bucs fans (and probably everyone) affectionately referred to him as the packers number 2 running back.

IIRC he pooped in her laundry basket, which was in the closet.

Dumping in the laundry basket is totally different than a random close location.  This guy apparently has some standards.

Steelers made a great game of today's Sunday primetime game.  And they earned they week off pretty well I think as they're banged up bad. 

It was great seeing Jacksonville lose to us though, been a while, and our back-up backs really did a great job I thought.  Now if we could only get an o-line to protect Roethlisberger, as that's a problem that isn't going away at this point.  It's sad to watch some nights.  ::)

Man the Giants played extremely well, and the Seahawks played extremly poor!  Nice to see the G-men start 4-0 and playing very well.  I highly doubt they will go undefeated, but they might get that don't-make-it-to-the-playoffs-following-a-Suerbowl-victory monkey off their back.

We had the Miami vs San Diego game here and you can definitely see Parcell's influence on that team already.  Glad to see that team doing well for a change.

Also glad to see the Broncos Defense step up.
