Ike Taylor caught a ball! Holy ****!

Ike Taylor has back to back games without spotting the other team points! Holy ****!

Heath Miller was a stud again!

Heath was blatantly blocked in the back on the fumble/incomplete pass!

Colon wasn't penalized!

Mike Adams flat out sucked in the first quarter and then held his own.

Ben had time with the exception of Adams horrendous pass blocking!

The team has cleaned up it's overall penalties!

Yesterday's game was great, great experience for Adams. He survived and did a decent job. If we can just keep the injuries down from here on out, I think we'll be okay.

Looking forward to kicking the Ravens face in. Revenge is on my mind.

Before this game started, I thought our highly ranked pass defense was a joke but after that game holding those WR's to pretty much nothing...it's possible.

not to be johnny rain cloud, but what i was really disappointed with was that we squandered terrific field position off of great returns.

but on the plus side, no penalties on big returns from our special teams!

Mike Adams absolutely did not suck in the 1st quarter. He struggled a bit with Justin Tuck and JPP (who doesn't?), but was a complete mauler in the run game.

I watched his play very closely, he had a stinker sack but then got his feet. IMO he's a starter and has earned the spot!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is 3 games in a row without a holding penalty from tackle to tackle.

We must be getting away with murder.

Adams will be fine. This line is coming together and kudos to Ramon Foster for holding down the RG position.

Keep him on the bench as a nice backup option, start him at LT next year.

Adams was horrific in the first half but he adjusted and got better as the night went on. If Ben can survive the growing pains then Adams has a bright future.

Heath is beyond money every time. When he drops one, but now that's news lol

Sanders needs to work on sustaining his speed, and and quicker acceleration. Getting caught by a Punter is unacceptable. LOL

Adams played very well almost the whole game except for a few snaps. He was fooled by Tuck on the one sack given up to Ben. You have to give credit to the Giants also. There front 4 is tops in the NFL. To say his performance for a whole half is an overstatement. Also, Sanders didnt get "caught" by the punter. Weatherford had a good angle on him anyway with a gunner chasing Sanders down. Hats off to Weatherford.

Yes, Adams is looking great. I can't wait to see DeCastro get in there too. Will DeCastro start this year when he comes back or do we just stick with the group we have now?

And the punter didn't catch Sanders, he took a hell of a good angle. Give me an angle like that on Sanders and I could probably catch him too! Well, maybe not lol.

Also, no one has mentioned Harrison, but where has he been? I saw him get held a few times (to be fair he is very good at bending his torso to make it look like a hold), but other than that he is MIA. I know he had last minute knee surgery, but I was hoping right around now he would start being a force again. Still not much from him, which makes me sad all day because he is one of my favorite all-time Steelers. One thing I do remember was that he had the ball on the Woodley fumble, but tried to scoop it instead of fall on it. Duh Silverback, fall on it.

He is getting healthier week by wee, but he still can not put a lot of torque on that knee yet to get the edge off the tackles. I think he will be back to his regular self after the Chiefs game.

Harrison said he won't be 100% all season, but he did say he doesn't have to be 100% to be dominant. We shall see. Hopefully he gets healthy right in time to make a run...

Yes, I think we will see the best of him in 2 weeks(maybe not 100%, but the best he will be all year). Hopefully we get up on the Chiefs by a big margin so we can rest some guys for a little bit. Harrison and Woodley also. We need them guys as healthy as possible for the Ravens coming up soon.

Mike Adams is doing better than Gilbert did in his first 3 starts

Guess you haven't been reading the sports news,according to the media " Eli and the Giants just had an off day". Personally I hope everyone feels that way and overlooks the Steelers.

looked more like he just ran out of gas and collapsed. Didn't look like he was tackled at all and may have fallen even if the punter wasn't three.

Another thigk I was very impressed with........the entire team refused to allow the horrendous officiating to affect their play and their attitude! I seldom get too upset over bad calls against the Steelers, I've gotten used to it, but I remember a horrible sinking feeling in my stomach after that idiotic "fumble" call on Ben and the failure to call the block in the back of Heath thereby awarding the second free touchdown to the Giants.

I'm not sure some were watching with regard to Adams. He had been so far out of position on many pass plays that you wonder if he didn't think he was a pulling guard. He did get it going in the second half but he was horrible on several plays early in the game, and he was similarly out of position on pass plays last week too.
