    The good:
    1.. we won and won big
    2. James connor was dominant throughout
    3. O-line made victor Beasley and takkarist McKinley disappear and control the game from start to finish
    4. The defense in general and tj watt in particular was dominant and I didn't recognize those guys in the secondary

    The bad:
    1. Although he settled down, I'm officially worried about Boswell
    2. While not related to this game, it looks like there will be no easy games within the division

    The ugly:
    1. The officiating..... a few ticky tack fouls and that phantom roughing penalty was a head scratcher

    Overall conclusion:
    The team I saw today can challenge for a super bowl

    Unbelievable team fact:
    The Steelers are undefeated when Ben has less than 30 attempts

    The most complete game plan I've seen from Tomlin and staff in a long while. Which makes one wonder why is it not the standard.

    Does this mean that no matter what the score and where in the game 30 attempts occur, that BB should be benched immediately and that guy "DUBS" be sent in? :shrug:

    I now have a new favorite phrase from Mike Tomlin- That September Stench

    The good:
    Just about everything and we are still alive playoff wise. AFC looks open but maybe kc is just heads above shoulders better than everyone with mahomes.

    The bad: the division is tough and the Falcons are done so I wont read too much into this win.

    I'll add this- very good special teams play, kick coverage has been better this season and a blocked punt.

    This X 1,000. I'm not sure why we have to play with our backs to the wall.

    Well I hope he realizes 1 game don't mean there can't be October odor. I just can't stand how he and the team seem satisfied with slow starts. It doesn't have to be the norm you know and it's a bad attitude to have. September stench leads to road reeks in the playoffs....if you make it.

    On the officiating front, I saw Tomlin actually say he is pissed off about the product of the league in regards to the officiating. I almost pee'd a little hahahahaha

    The good:

    The Steelers handled their business. Played a full 4 quarters. Only got stronger as the game progressed. And gave us a going away win that didn't tax our hearts.

    Nothing else matters to me right now. I'm content.

    I'm actually impressed if he said that. Not sure how much it will help or hurt but I give him credit for saying it..

    The bad: we couldn’t even tackle the punter cleanly. The punter broke out of a couple of attempted tackles and almost took it to the house!

    Just kidding. Great game all around

    The good.... It seemed that Watt and Dupree didn't drop back in pass coverage as much this game and used them for pass rushing more, which I think helped the defense today.

    Good - Pass rush, Connor

    Ugly - Ben in the first half

    The Good:
    1. We won a football game that I thought of as must win, especially at home.
    2. Our O-Line dominated allowing Conner to run wild, and our D-Line dominated and didn't allow Ryan to get comfortable.
    3. Great special teams play today. A blocked punt and great coverage.
    The Bad:
    1. Bens decision in the redzone throwing the jump ball to AB. Not gonna cry over spilt milk-Tomlin
    The Ugly:
    1. Awful Officiating
    Good bounce back win, have to keep it rolling next weekend at Cincy.

    The good: The D was allowed to play simple and fast.
    The bad: If we go right back to our old ways next week.
    The ugly: My reaction if they do.

    The good - we won and are sitting at 500

    The bad - We havent beat a team with a winning record yet, both TB and ATL ARE 1-4 and bottom of their Div

    The ugly- we are still in last place in the div

    The good - good, solid effort in all 3 phases of our game. We actually looked like *gasp* we planned for this one.

    The bad - Boswell. Sigh. I mean come on. Those "insignificant" PAT misses are gonna bite us one of these times.

    The ugly - Dupree still sux. Not only can he not rush, he can't get past an OL without making illegal contact. And can't even pick up a fumble right in front of him.
