    Default Once again,I'll take it

    A divison win,4-2 on the season,some great individual performances on offense,Ben,Hines,Heath and Wallace. Looking at the nunbers,total yards,passing yards,Q.B rating don't you get the feel it should have been 51-0?
    Turnrovers and a special team breakdown made it closer than it should have been.Gotta tighten that up.
    The Browns are as bad a team as I've seen in a long time.

    Yeah,we def should have won by a MUCH bigger marging.Almost 600 total yds and only 27 pts to show for it is fugly.That sure as hell won't suffice next week.

    Beat the 0-5 Titans in OT
    Beat the 2-2 Chargers
    Beat the 1-5 Lions
    Beat the 1-5 Browns

    I'll take it also. Will be interesting to see how we do against a good team that barely beat the ratbirds today.

    There are positives to take from today's game. Time for the coaches to look at the problems, adjust and move on. Plus, time for my blood pressure to come back down... I'm surprised I don't have a vein on my head that looks like Flacco's unibrow.

    Any win is a positive. Ugly or dominating or tough fought out, the end result matters most.

    Turnovers hurt the offense from scoring more. We fumbled in the red zone, Ben threw a bad pick etc... we could've easily won that one 41-7 but the positives were the offense moving the ball with ease. Not having to reply on something. Able to pick up tough yards on the ground, able to pick up short and long through the air. Protection was good (anytime you throw for that many yards you're getting good protection).

    Defense... outside of the Browns lone scoring drive was alright. The pressure is simply not getting to the QB all season and that's a concern but we at least created more turnovers in this game than we had combined all year, so that's a positive

    If we roll out 600 yards total offense, we'd better have 40+ on the scoreboard. These guys need to cut out the turnovers and tighten up play on D and ST.

    The Steelers will need their "A" game next week to drop the Vikes out of the ranks of unbeaten.

    Forgot to mention Holmes, who also had over a 100 yards recieving and I thought Timmons played well.

    Thank heavens we play the Vikes at home. The turnovers today were inexcusable save for the shady fumble of Mendy.

    We are going to have to contain Peterson and pressure Favre constantly, while keeping Jared Allen off of Ben.


    There's no doubt in my mind we can beat the vikes, but it is going to take a complete game to do it.

    I simply don't understand our kicking game...not punting, but the kick after a score. Reed is supposed to have one of the stronger legs but he rarely gets it past the 10 yd line, and while it's hard to tell on TV, doesn't get a lot of hang time. So because we give up a return, we now kick off underneath and give the other possession at mid field. WTF?

    If this is how it's going to be, let Sepulveda punt the ball. Either that, or use a roster spot for someone who can actually get it to the endzone.

    Yeah I don't understand that either (Reed's lack of depth) on kicks

    One other thing. Did Ziggy Hood even see the field? I don't recall seeing him.

    Looks like Tomlin's first year as head coach. Beat the scrubs but lose to the good teams. Let's see what he comes up with for the Vikings.

    It was a tough game to watch at times (consecutive turnovers), and was great to watch at others (pressure/sacks on Anderson)... But as the thread title stated, I'll take it...

    .... But it SURE is gonna get interesting with our next few games....
