I tried to deny it all I could, but this team was way too banged up to compete today.
Big Ben hobbled, operating at 50%, Pouncey out, Mendenhall out (though Redman did great!), Clark out, Kiesel and Hampton knocked out. Woodley hobbled by hamstring.
If the Steelers were healthy up front on the DL I think we would have seen more pressure get to Tebow. We could have seen more plays made by the linebackers. Maybe Tebow wouldn't have had all day long to torch Ike Taylor.
It's a testament to the heart and character of this team that it even made it to OT after they fell behind 20-6.
