I still haven't gotten past the "go back" button for exiting the web browser. I need a better strategy.

Go to open up a new window for a Web browser and then just tap the close window button.

Nice win. Feels good to have the Steelers be 2-2.

What i really liked more than anything was the willingness of the coaches to finally let Timmons be Timmons and attack the line of scrimmage instead of dropping backwards all the time. He's way more effective when he is using his athleticism to make plays.

I think Harrison being back helped that.

Might have, the gameplan regarding Timmons this week was completely different and didn't change even after Woodley and Troy were out. If they keep him playing that way, the Steelers have a huge new weapon that has.... always been there.

Also, don't know if anyone saw this or commented on it but the rotation of defensive players was really nice. McLendon, Woods, Heyward and Worilds all played a significant amount of time. Heyward and McLendon really need to play more.

I said during the first game that we would be 2-2 and would end up 10-6. Will that be enough? Hope so. Ravens at 4-1 is scary, even if they aren't.

yeah, i think of all the "good" teams in the league, the ravens are probably the biggest frauds. but 4-1 is a pretty big lead on the rest of the division.

Are Ravens really frauds though? They keep winning and beat the Steelers all the time now. Just thinking out loud. Hope you're right though. 4-1 is scary...

Everyone (except maybe Ray Rice) on the Ravens was horrid today and they still won. So I dunno how much the "fraud" tag really belongs on them. Isn't winning even when top parts of the team play badly a mark of a non-fraud team?

They won 9-6 vs. A mediocre team. We will beat them.

Book it.

Again when everything seems to go wrong yet they still win it's not the mark of a fraud.

their defense stinks. they are scoring at home, but they are basing their offense too much on a no huddle scheme, which is both pretty useless on the road, and dependent on Flacco showing up every game, which is STILL a big question mark from him.

no huddle offense = less rest for their shaky defense. I'm not totally sold, but I wouldn't call them frauds either

Big win against a solid team today. I'll take it. Mendy looked great in return. Hopefully we have a modicum of a running game. Timmons? Please tell me he hasn't always been that good and we just never used him like that. Ike is developing a semi-deserved reputation; he needs to stop hand checking so much. We need the secondary to make some plays.

I REALLY feel you might be right regarding Timmons. Ugh...

What happened to that guy that claims the team is much better than everyone realizes, while simultaneously telling everyone that they're idiots for not understanding how bad individual players are?

Maybe it's just that having Harrison opens up opportunities that weren't there otherwise? I dunno. But sucks that Woodley is hurt now... would have been nice to have our LB core together for more than a few plays.
