    I can tell you one thing I see. Neither of these defenses could stop a nose bleed.

    Steelers just ran a draw on 3rd and goal from the 8.

    When did they hire Norv Turner?

    Poor DeAngelo Williams. The guy is having his best statistical game in 2 years, and can't get any carries inside the 5. Dude would have 25-30 fantasy points if they would give him the ball down there.

    While I've always had to admire Brady's talent, I've never rooted for the guy.

    But I find myself doing so tonight.

    I felt that "Deflategate" was a petty, overblown (never mind incompetent) witch-hunt from Day One.
    No team should have their leader taken off the field on such lousy "evidence."

    I'm sure my Charger partisanship will override this current soft spot for Tom...
    but right now, I want to see him do well.


    p.s. It doesn't hurt that I've disliked Roethlisberger since Milledgeville...

    p.p.s. And no, I'm too much of a realist to expect that those that yelled that Brady was
    guilty (and kept insisting that real evidence really did exist somewhere, and would eventually be offered to prove Brady broke some rule...any rule) will now admit that they were wrong...
    it's okay...we know...and the "evidence" must've got lost in the mail... :p

    How poorly coached were the Steelers tonight? Terrible playcalling. Penalties. Missed FGs. Couldn't get lined up on defense. They didn't even bother covering Gronk on a few plays.

    My fantasy team loves that Antonio Brown garbage time TD and that my opponent had Williams on his bench with only Ladarius Green able to be his flex now.

    With Josh Scobee missing two very makeable field goals (44 & 46 yards) that could’ve chaned the direction of the game, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Pittsburgh working out Nick Novak & other out of work placekickers within the next couple days just in case they need to sign one on short notice.

    Neither team impressed me at all. I thought the Steelers blew this game more than the Patriots won it. That was an impressive number of unforced mistakes that they made.

    Yeah, that last touchdown...the commentator said the crowd called it. As soon as I saw him shifting outside... "Fade into the corner"...*pause*

    Brady fades to Gronk, although it wasn't even much of a fade, just threw it a snag high.

    I agree with regards to both teams. I mean it's early, and the Patriots are good at making adjustments. It did give a feeling that we have a chance. It's been a rough last few years for us, so I think we're all hoping it's going to better for us because both are completely beatable if our offense is clicking.

    I'm not sure about Reich's play calls. I don't like being predictable

    From the unnecessary trick play to the Missed FGs to bad play calls inside the 5... and they still were in the game. And thats just the Offensive side of the ball... We not looking at the complete negligence to attempt to cover receivers. Or be able to diagnose that they gonna run the same play they just ran the past 2 downs. Pretty bad coaching that game.

    Yea, but you can say that for pretty much anyone if you decide to come up with the brilliant idea to not cover him.

    Not only did everyone know it was going back to Gronk, but just like the goaline possession before, the back motions out wide to the strong side and you let your 1 DB roll out with him instead of keeping him on the side with gronk to give you a fighting chance in a 1v1 matchup.

    Looks like both of those teams have regressed. Can't complain.
