The screen passes are killing me... The returns up the middle are killing me...
our D is holding its **** together, so yay for them and Ben's getting his as we speak. That field goal was definitely a momentum stealer though. I'm still disappointed even though it's early, but just out of sheer frustration. Some dumb **** has gone down early in the game on the Steelers part and the last thing they needed was a hole to dig themselves out of in this game.
Welp, it played out like I figured pretty much... Not that it's done, but it may as well be. The Steelers didn't need that sloppy play at the start and it really hurt them.
After Polamalu's Int., they had momentum but the botched onsides kick + Roethlisberger's Interception took any wind in their sales away and Indy just played spot on all night. The D for Pittsburgh played well, I'm happy with them for the most part (secondary was sloppy here and there but against the Colts I was overall pleased). There's a number of places I lay the blame on for the Steelers tonight though... The O line collapsing several times around Ben, Ben playing poorly at the start ("rust" is not an excuse IMO), the running game being slow at the start (but they did pick up quite a bit the rest of the game). And penalties... holy **** the penalties.
The Steelers dug a hole against a team they couldn't do it against, and at the half there was no hope left. I muted the TV and did stuff online I needed to do while talking on the phone. Steelers better get a lot of **** in the lockerroom from Cowher tonight because they need some sense knocked into them.
