Ug. The D is never the same without Polamalu in there, even when he doesn't have a big game. Have a bad feeling about this one.

I don't think I've ever seen someone that is injured as often as Polamalu.

I did not like the Harrison contract when it was given and I don't like it now. The guy was 31 when he got that contract. Not a good deal.

Can''t wait to see how the offenses exploits the absence of Revis by running the ball 70% of the time and throwing at Cromartie.

Arians is gone... so I guess if this happens again, the finger lands on Tomlin.

The first half play-calling of 1st Down run, 2nd Down run, 3rd Down pass was disconcerting.

On the bright side, it seemed like he did adjust in the second half by moving away from that and by running Dwyer more, who was plainly more effective than Redman in the first half. This is a good sign in comparison to Bruce, whose biggest fault IMO was unwillingness to make obvious in game adjustments.

I went to a game last year... and while it was an experience, I could never enjoy going to the game on a regular basis. I hated the fact that they won't/can't show any replay that might be even slightly controversial or when there was an injury... so you have no idea what happened. That gets old fast.

That sounds nice in theory... but I had basically no service throughout the entire game.

Tweet from Eric Tangradi (@ETangradi):

Went with the @AntonioBrown84. When he goes for today I will attempt to dance like him in my seat.


Glad to see he's not an Eagles fan!

Lol, I'm pretty sure he is (he's tweeted a lot of pro-Philly sports stuff before IIRC). He's just

1. Appeasing Pens fans.
2. Talking about fantasy football

Could be, but either way it's a smart move on his part.
