    Watt had more sacks than our ILB had tackles.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    Agree with everything except that Highsmith was very solid in all other phases but sacking the QB, and we were robbed on the McCloud long-ball catch. Even though the ball "moved", he maintained possession when it touched the ground.

    4. I thought officiating was terrible starting with Diontae getting drilled on the sideline
    6. Kid goes from great to boneheaded. He has to get consistent to be a pro.

    I agree with everything except 4. To me it looked like the refs didn't know what they were doing. But to each their own. The defense looked solid and came in clutch, we just have to be more consistent in our tackles. Why do we wait for the player with the ball to run to us and then make an arm tackle, with all the momentum carrying the ball carrier up the field gaining an additional 5+ yards. At times, it looked like we weren't well conditioned or fast enough. Wormley, Bush, Schobert, Witherspoon all stepped up, and Mondeaux played solid (and has been consistent) and deserve PT. Watt and Minkah did their thing. We got better as the game went on. I think the reports that this is Ben's last season actually caused him to relax and play his best. McCloud stepped up. Claypool was good, Najee was great. Diontae did his thing but also needs to work on those drops. It was just the one, but it could of cost us the game and that should never be dropped.

    Let us not let Joe Scho off the hook either today everyone. Scho has been better than Bush by a country mile but today was not one of his best performances overall.

    Hate to burst the Bush and Edmonds hate, but they just drew out the play during halftime of the Chiefs game. Blown coverage was on Minkah. He had Andrews man to man, and he got caught looking in the backfield.

    Yeah I guess Bush, and Edmunds do enough screw-ups on their own without adding stuff. LoL :thumbs_up:

    Every one knows about the tough schedule the Steelers have down the stretch but our division rivals don't have a cake walk either.

    I'm not sure of the contract status but I saw Rob Ryan is the Ravens inside linebackers coach I'd see if in the off season if he can be lured away. Ravens interior always looks prepared.

    The Ravens might be without their best CB Humphrey for a while with a shoulder injury.

    It is suspected he may be done for the season. Should that be the case, battle for the second AFC North slot just got a lot more wide open unless Baltimore can win against Cincy as Cincy could just very well take the Crown.

    They said on the Chief/Bronco game that it looks like his season is over.

    The Ravens could be in some trouble, they have a tough remaining schedule, and their offense is struggling.

    I would like Pittsburgh's chances to win the division..... if they did not tie with the Lions. Beating the Lions would have made things so much better. Sadly... this simply is not the case.

    Ravens been walking the tightrope all season, they're due for a bad stretch. @CLE, Packers, @Cincy next three.

    Buckle up.

    11 Jackson can’t throw, heck many QBs can’t throw when you constantly pressure them.

    I want a redo for Burrow and Herbert.
    They would cry after seeing today’s Steelers Defense.

    I would also like our chances if they didn't get swept by the Bengals.

    That was the most points the Baltimore offense has scored since Nov. 7, so I wouldn't get too excited. They lost their top three running backs in the preseason. They are also without their left tackle. That is why Villanueva was back on the left side with Makari at right tackle. Then they lost him during the game. Watt against a third-string tackle? You saw the results.

    Of course, Herbert didn't have to see Watt at all. I have no doubt the injuries on defense cost the Steelers that game against the Chargers.

    I do love how Watt has responded to his big contract, but I'm not surprised. Some guys might have slacked off a bit, but he is playing the best ball of his career this season. Look at that final drive. He had a strip sack of Jackson, with the ball somehow rolling out of bounds before anybody could get to it. He also beat his man on the long pass play that put the Ravens inside the Steelers' 30, but Phillips got away with a blatant hold. Then he pressured Jackson into the bad throw on the two-point conversion.
