    Default Which Steeler get your game ball today?

    Jeff Reed - 4/4 on FGs and an extra point, 13 total points from your kicker is a fantasy owner's dream.

    Antonio Brown - dude is fast, returned opening KO 89 yds for a TD to give Steelers a lead we would never relinquish. also added one punt return for 21 yards.

    Lawrence Timmons - has quickly quieted those who criticized his 1st round selection. Timmons made 15 tackles today, including one for a loss.

    James Harrison - 11 tackles, 1 for a loss, 2 sacks and 2 forced fumbles...not a bad day's work.

    Troy Polamalu - key interception in the endzone to prevent Titans from taking a 10-7 lead. also had 6 tackles and a highlight reel sack of Collins late in the game.

    The entire defense. They won the **** game almost single-handedly. It's was like the Steelers defense vs. the Titans offense and defense.

    The Steelers offense wasn't even trying to get 1st downs in the 2nd half. Pretty amazing effort by the defense. It's one thing to force 7 turnovers and keep a team to just 11 points on the road. It's another thing when you pretty much know your offense isn't going to do anything to help you.

    I'm going with Harrison, but there were so many on Defense that almost any of them are worthy. I'd put Woodley on the list too.

    Woodley only had 4 tackles, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed and 1 interception...what a lousy game!

    I choose Harrison, but if I had to defend my choice to the ones not picked, I'd pull a Doug Heffernin and fake a heart attack.

    I think our D and ST accounted for all the points (and I mean I think that the turnovers plus the return TD were what accounted for all the points)...as I am not even sure the offense even put themselves in field-goal position.

    So I would say the whole D/ST units...19 points by that collective group...looks good.

    The entire Defense

    there really wasn't a specific defensive performance felt that stood out more than another but the entire performance of the D was awesome in its own and ultimate got us the FG's and win.

    I was going to put special Teams down but outside of the touchdown which was more of a playcall deal than a good return the coverage teams stunk (again Sepulveda is forced to make tackles) and the other returns not based on a gadget were unimpressive

    Defense!!

    The Steelers.com site didn't give online voters the choice of voting for the entire defense. I agree that it was a collective effort and should be a collective award.
    BTW, my wife votes Troy, but she loves the guy, so her vote is tainted.

    an excerpt from Dale Lolley's Post-Tennessee Thoughts:

    Lawrence Timmons should be the early favorite for Defensive Player of the Year. That's two games and 26 tackles. He's also played a huge part in shutting down both Michael Turner and Milli Vanilli wannabe Chris Johnson.

    By the same token, if James Harrison doesn't win AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after making 11 tackles, two sacks, forcing two fumbles and recovering another, they should stop giving the award.

    Harrison totally took the game over in the third quarter. Tennessee had one yard in the third quarter, with Harrison making five tackles, two sacks and forcing two fumbles - in 12 plays.

    Oh, epic fail for using the words "wife" and "taint" in the same sentence. No nookie tonight for you if she sees that.



    I would give the ball to the D as a unit tonight. But, if Les threatened me to pick a single player or he would shove his prickly rubber toy down my throat, I would pick Troy.
    However, Troy is my Avatar, so my answer may be tainted as well.
