The real worry is that Janikowski's range is the 50 yard line.

Yinzers are always so negative.

Reality is not always happy happy joy joy. They played bad in the first half which some people didn't want to hear. They've been outplayed by a really bad team. I don't see much positive in this.

Yeah, I agree. So they haven't found better because...? Ramon Foster should in no way be a contending NFL team's top OL reserve.


They just decided to address it by drafting a top ranked guy this year. That guy then went and got hurt.


Right, and Ramon Foster was their top backup. Ramon Foster should not be their top backup on the line. He's awful.

Didn't realize doubling up your opponent in yards and essentially making two bad plays is "bad".

Agree 100%, this sadly is the casualty of drafting wide receivers and depth linebackers later in the draft and then happily going after undersized lineman.

With Janikowski, this game is just about over. This is a devastating loss if the inevitable occurs

Seriously, what does Ryan Munday do that keeps him employed by the Pittsburgh Steelers? It can't be the way he plays football.

Everyone knew going in that they had no corners outside of Ike, Troy was eventually going to get hurt this year and miss a chunk of games, and the defensive line was basically an unknown with Fatboy, Hood and Heyward being all unproven.

Unfortunately wins are determined by points scored and not yards.
