    Positives? Lets see:

    1. Defense played very well and limited the Jags to field goals on drives that probably should have ended with Jacksonville touchdowns.

    2. Cedrick Wilson finally caught a damn pass.

    3. I started Chad Pennington instead of Roethlisberger on my fantasy team this week.

    yeah they did do good, just felt bad for them with giant wr's and being out on the field so much

    2. Cedrick Wilson finally caught a damn pass.

    Well I wasn't there for the draft, so I ended up with Ben, Brooks, and Kitna as my QBs. I just got Pennington off waivers, and wasn't sure if Ben would play, so I went with Pennington, and I sure am glad I did.

    I wouldn't start Ben the majority of the time, he won't get you alot of points. If he has 200-250 yds passing and a couple TD's thats a great day.

    I believe the game is national because it's going to be seen here in Tucson!

    The positives:
    • Special Teams (punt coverage) was a completely differnet team than last week.
    • Defense did the best they could given the amount of time they spent on the field.
    • Ben had a bad game. will be on the war path next week!!!


    Cowher definitely didn't bring his best gameplan today. They started to run the hurry up but it was already to late, Jacksonville had sucked up all the energy in the stadium and had the Steelers number. They didn't do any of the razzle dazzle plays, it's not the best way to win a game but it does force the defense to stay honest.

    * Ben got his first game of the season under his belt and hopefully got all the rust out of his system. He's got 6 more days to heal up more and get back to his old self

    *True

    Defense! If the D plays like that all year, we'll be fine...the offense will get back on track.

    By the way, I've seen far worse starts to a season than this before. In 1988 we lost the first game 51-0, the second game 41-10, and we ended up 2 points away from the AFCG.

    The point is, week two has no bearing on how this season is going to turn out.

    I think I will get the Pittsburgh game cause Cleveland plays at 4 15 I believe. YEAH!! Unless the damn station here decides not to televise it cause they are Browns fans. I hate that crap.

    There weren't many positives, but I would say the defense played tough and special teams definitely stepped it up. There is still a lot of football left to play so don't lose hope now lol.

    Yeah the defense played very well, and that was practically without Troy Polamalu, who's injury really seemed to be affecting his play. Play that game with a healthy Troy, and it could be a whole different story. An interception on that 1 Jags drive that started inside their 20 could have been the game.
