    Steelers vs. Jaguars in Jacksonville, both teams at 1-0.

    Have at it, go Steelers.

    So I turn on Monday Night Countdown and I see nothing but Steelers fans everywhere behind the set. So naturally I think it's at Heinz.

    Then I see another view and I realize it's Jax, then they go to a live shot of Willie Parker warming up on the field and there's a couple dozen Steelers fans on the rail doing the "here we go Steelers" thing.

    Willie said "hear that? Home game."

    I bet that half the people at All Tarp tonight are Steelers fans.

    Comparing Steelers fans to Jax fans is like comparing the number of ants in Texas and the number of ants in...my front yard.

    Is it to much to ask Carr to make two plays ala Big Ben per week? There will be missed assignments or just not an accounted for defender at times, but the QB must make plays at 7 million per year.

    Big ben doesn't look all that great. The Jax defense looks stout.

    You mean like 22-26, 200 yards, 3 TD's great?

    Now I'm throughly confused. You said "Is it too much to ask of Carr to make some plays like Big Ben every week"? And then said, "At 7 million dollars, he should be able to make plays"

    To which I responded that Big Ben doesn't look that good.

    Then you responded by quoting me Carr's good stat line?

    I'm not sure I follow ...


    Anyway, the offense of the Steelers right now looks like the old days of run run pass punt

    I'm still lost. I root against Ben Roethlisberger, but I can't root for the Jags...let's see...Go Matt Jones, Heath Miller, Jeff Reid, and...Kornheiser!

    We are in trouble, guys. Them Jags have their act together, this game is incrediable to watch. LOL, Scobee is their MVP too.

    Gonna be a long season for me, can't trash talk anyone. This sucks. :crutch:

    Wow their defense looks amazing. Not to give them too much credit, as I haven't been impressed with their playcalling (Steelers) and I haven't really been impressed with the recently recovered Big Ben.

    I mean, when the run isn't working, and you're down nine, why do you keep going to it??

    What's up with Polamalu today? Not half the impact I expected.

    I spent time talking to Jags fans this summer...Matt Jones is the next Randy Moss, it seems.

    Good game. Good game.

    Here's some things to think about:
    Jax is a run stuffing machine. They shut down the Steelers run game completely.
    Leftwhich looks like he's finally developing chemistry with his receivers.
    Fred Taylor looks great.


    All that said, Ben shouldn't have started. Reports were that he had a 104 fever prior to the game, still had pain in his surgical site, and had no reps in a regular season game to date. Batch did a great job against a good Miami D, so why not give him the start?

    The Jags really punched the Steelers right in the mouth. As much as I detest some of their fans I cannot but wish we had that sort of physical nature on defense. Thats whats going to help us beat Peyton eventually. That or waiting until he retires, and I'm pretty sure no one here wants the 2nd option.

    I think D-Rob, and Jamie Sharper are the only people to play like that here.


    I have seen flashes of it from Travis Johnson, and DeMarco Ryans. Maybe we just need a vet to come in and bring it together. I heard someone mention Weaver to be that guy, but he just seems like a nice guy to me. *shrug*

    They looked like a playoff or more caliber team last night. They kept the Steelers in check the whole game and their "D" will be a force to reckon with. I'm not that eager to play them this year anymore...lol. :yikes:
