Michael Vick in a post game interview: "I really had a problem fumbling the football."

I beg to differ Mike, seems like you had no problem fumbling the ball.

i think the most exciting thing about having mendenhall back is how todd haley will utilize him in the flat. this is where he excelled at illinois and arians for some reason refused to take advantage of this.

I thought the quote was Vick saying "he's never had a problem fumbling the ball". He has the most lost fumbles of any active player in the NFL.

No turn overs and technically no sacks (but that first botched snap basically turned into a sack). Now, if they can just not get penalized 10 times a game they should be in fine shape.

Went back and watched it again.

It was, "I really had problems fumbling the football today." Close enough.

Timmons has been great for 4 years now. Just like Farrior when he was a little younger, you don't notice the middle linebackers as much as the outside guys. They stay home a lot and are most of the reason, along with casey hampton, that no one ever runs on us. They blitzed him more yesterday, but i think that was just a gameplan for Vick and shady, I wouldn't get my hopes up that you will always see it. Do it enough, they'll run right by it with nobody home up the middle.

I wondered what the hell Brown was doing and why he wouldn't get up to the line to spike the ball quickly.

I follow that Mike Peireira, ex head official, and he said that won't ever get called unless he throws it at a player. I think if spiking a ball after a first down is unsportsmanlike, throwing someone's shoe should be too.

In any other situation it'd be a moot point but there was like 15 seconds left on a running clock. He did it so AB couldn't line up. (or could he have lined up without a shoe?)

The Eagles pulled that several times in yesterday's game, whether it was laying on top of a player when he was trying to get up, etc. Gamesmanship, I suppose.

It seems like it should be a delay of game penalty.

This game wasnt as close a a last-second field goal made it seem, or rather it shouldn't have been. Lots of shooting themselves in the foot on offense, which limited the score and changed play calling by both teams.

I disagree about Timmons being great the past 4 years. He is a solid MLB, but he also gets paid all-pro type money and doesn't perform at that level no where near a consistent basis. That being said, he was AWESOME yesterday. The Steelers really need for him to continue this play because with Troy and Harrison on the downside of their careers, they need someone making the "splash plays."

if you can throw a guy's shoe off the field why can't you throw his helmet off the field if it falls off?

Mendenhall performed better than I ever expected for 1st game.
Now I know why Colon grew his hair long... :) covers up the name on penalties.

Way too many penalties including 4 holds by a guy who has a penalty history. I think the PG stated they have had 27 penalties for 290 some yards in the last 3 games. That's way too undisciplined.Tomlin needs to do some butt kicking. They had 5 drops by their 2 best wrs including a sure TD. There are always drops but that's 3 too many IMO. One guy just got 8.5 mil and dropped 2;the other guy thinks 10 mil isn;t enough and he dropped 3. Not acceptable.
