    1. O-line is gonna need time to gel
    2. When banner gets back, chuks should be benched
    3. This defense is special.... Just imagine this unit when tuitt gets back
    4. Deontae Johnson looks like the light has come on
    5. Cam Sutton had one hell of a debut as a starter
    6. Bills OT's should be charged with sexual harassment for the way they constantly hugged our edges
    7. TJ Watt is coming for that d.p.o.y trophy
    8. Ben wasn't great, but he was gritty
    9. If I'm not mistaken, no other Steelers RB entered this game
    10. Boswell was his usual self

    It's early but we will need a running game if Ben is going to last. I don't expect his prime numbers but his knowledge of the game is a huge plus and he will have his moments in each game.

    I think the light has been on for DJ since the first time he stepped on the field, he just got a case of the yips last season.

    Cam balled out for sure.

    TJ played as I expected, too much made out of him not practicing with the team. The Watts know how to prepare.

    Definitely big Ben last year.

    I think they should go after Rodgers next year.

    Actually, both Cams balled out. Twin Cams, because I like raw horsepower.

    I personally blame Tomlin for the lack of preparation by T.J. Watt......

    Oh wait..

    I really didn't see any "oh, wow, that was horrible" mistakes. Nice play by Pierre in the end zone. Sutton and Fitzpatrick played top shelf football.

    Sounds like many of the people on the Hockey Futures MB. "Pens should trade a seventh defense man and a fourteenth forward for Nathan McKinnon." :rolleyes:

    The Steelers defense is still great. I want Najee Harris and the offensive line to be consistent, so the Steelers do not have to throw the ball over 50 times in a game. Also, the offensive line were getting alot of penalties in 2020, they cleaned that up today. If Diontae Johnson can hold on to the ball, the Steelers wide receivers of JuJu, Chase, Diontae, and James will be special. And Chris Boswell is still one of the best kickers in the league.

    Can Hayward has a GREAT game.

    Steelers secondary may be much better than I anticipated.

    If we get Rodgers, I think he would help more than hurt. Doubt we can afford him.

    Defense and Special Teams was huge! Only takes one huge ST play to turn a game.Spillane got hurt before hand giving Gilbert a hat, what a huge play he made on ST so the Spillane injury was a blessing in disguise.

    We came out 2nd half, gathered a rythym on offense and D and ST stepped up big time.Cam Heyward was a beast and opened it up for Watt allowing for some huge plays. Cam Sutton excelled and really softened the blow on losing Hilton.

    I continue to love this LB corp and bringing Ingram in during FA was a great move. Highsmith was questionable this past week with a groin injury and it was great to see him out there.

    If this Oline can continue to gel and establish a running game with Harris, this team will turn a ton of heads. Friermuth threw some great blocks as well. The downside was TE's weren't targeted much. Its clear that Ebron should take a backseat to Friermuth at this point.

    Just an all around great win against a team that almost everyone counted us out against.

    Rodgers isn't coming here. He wants to go back west. Vegas or Denver will be his landing spot, IMO.

    Spot on with all above. You are correct, no other RB's entered the game. Its clear that Harris is the bell cow here. Also Cam Heyward was a beast today! Friermuth should be replacing Ebron as the #1 TE, he threw some amazing blocks.

    The Steelers defense is elite and is pretty likely to be the best in the NFL this season. They’re talented, extremely deep and very well-coached.

    The most encouraging thing to me was the OL’s improvement from first to second half as well as the receiving core’s ability to block. Muth might become a Health-like TE who has good hands and is a strong blocker.

    I’m just so so encouraged by today.

    The oline just needs time to play together and gel.

    Thank god for signing Ingram. He probably should be starting for another team, but we sure will need him this year.

    Hopefully Bills D is just really really good, but run blocking was a tough go today.
