    Anyone watching? Pretty tough to have an injury like this on the opening kickoff.

    How about this Joe Flacco kid. This is one polished looking rookie. That is some freaky arm strength.

    Who could Roethlisberger possibly been trying to throw to?

    It looked like he was gonna go deep but then started pulling the ball down & it slipped out....at least that's the only thing I can imagine.

    I have Pittsburgh in the pick 'em contest, so I would really like the team that played us to show up.

    But I agree about Flacco, pretty impressive.

    I made fun of them for giving up so much for him... but so far I am dead wrong. I hope he has an off day against us.

    I must protest those hideous uniforms the Steelers are wearing. Those yellow helmets are too much.

    Flacco has too much air on his deep balls.

    What the hell has gotten into Roethlisberger? I have 12 pts riding on this game.

    Being hurt and no time to throw the ball.

    If Pitt can change the color of the helmets, couldn't the Texans change theirs to white on Liberty White Day or to red on Battle Red Day?

    There is probably some retarded rule about throwback uniforms being able to do that and since we have no throwbacks we are sol on that.

    Flacco is impressive. The Ravens offensive line is going to be excellent in another year or two. I'd kill to have Rex Ryan as our defensive coordinator.


    Touchdown Flacco.

    The man hasn't been the same since Mario abused him.

    We all knew the first five games of this year were going to be tough and wins would be hard to come by but I did not expect this from Baltimore. Flacco looks good I hope develops the happy feet when he visits Reliant!

    I forgot to mention that the Ravens got an absolute steal in Jared Gaither.

    I guess acting on House has given the Steeler's coach an advantage in the half time speech area.

    Note to Texans defense, do not try to arm tackle LeRon McClain or he will rip it off and stiff arm you with it.

    So does anyone know what the TO controversy they are hyping is about?

    I think he said that the Boys lost cuz he didn't get the ball enough, but Romo apparently threw it to him 17 times.

    Something like that I think.
