Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (17-3)
Submitted by Will Smith
Well, unfortunately, I didn't get to see the game this week, but I'm glad we came away with a win. I read that Kordell wasn't real
sharp and the receivers are still cross-eyed, but at least they weren't handing the ball to defenders this week. The bus is back...
let's hope the running game keeps going like this the rest of the year and the passing game continues to play "smart football" and
not give up any turnovers. It's what we did in '95 and rode it to the Super Bowl.

Oh my God, we finally win a game! Seeing as how we won, I am not even going
to talk about our offense. The "Big D" is the story here, folks. And by the way,
has Nolan Harrison begun packing his bags yet? He should, because it's over
for him in Pittsburgh. Roye done stole the show and Mr. Harrison's job! Hey,
thanks for everything, Nolan. I've got the classifieds here. 'Ya want me to mail 'em
to ya? Damn I'm mean!
I would love to be a fly on the wall in the
Steelers locker room. I wonder what it's like after a game... who says what to
whom? Who feels guilty cashing their paychecks? Oh, I'm sorry, I said I
wouldn't talk about them... ooooooooopps!
Well,I would like to get really happy
over this win, but it's tough -- it's only the Bungholes. Tim, Tommy, and I could
beat the Bungholes. But, as the man pointed out, a W is a W.
Don't look now, more birds coming. Will the Falcons be able to control their bowel
functions? The Seahawks couldn't. Until next week...

Post-game vs. Cinn-city Bugalingus:
"After further review, there is no post-game due to the fact that the flags
were not thrown."
"Correction... the game stands as called... no post-game was called ahead of the
game, therefore it stands as ruled on the field."
"Please put 2 seconds on the clock and then remove them... please add and then
remove the time from the clock."
Excerpts from Fleetwood 'n' Julio's
essay portion of entrance
exam to Paul Tagliabue
for consideration of enrollment
in NFL Officials Training School.
P.S.-- Memo to CBS commentator, Brent (wobbly-kick) Jones: Of all the punts made
in Sunday's Steelers vs. Bengies game, exactly zero, none, zilch, nada would
qualify as a "wobbly-kick" (including the 70-yarders), but at least you didn't mention the 49ers!

It wasn't pretty, but we'll definitely take it. For all of my
post game comments, please refer to my pregame comments. School's out, boys!

First off, let me apologize for the lack of updates this past week. I got ambushed by a last minute business project and had to put the site on ice for a few of days (Sandy doesn't know how to do html code to do updates). Thankfully, Timmy's back.
Yes, Jerome Bettis was alive & well in the Jungle this afternoon (even if the offense in general still seemed pretty sluggish), ripping the Bengals for 111 yards and 2 TDs. But my player of the game is Orpheus Roye, who must've looked like "Mean Joe" Greene roaming around out there today (I say "must've" because we were again forced to listen via the Net simulcast since Cleveland vs. Jax was on the tube). Roye not only snagged a crucial drive-ending interception late in the 4th quarter, but also provided a sack, 4 batted passes, and 6 tackles... not bad for a guy who's name sounds like an insult.
Our secondary was superb in containing Cinci's excellent WRs Pickens & Scott (who left the game with an injury), and Corey Dillon (who was one of the NFL's top rushers coming into the game) was for the most part a non-factor. Yes, there were breakdowns (2 pass interference calls on Washington on the same drive come to mind), but overall, these guys were damn good.
There's been a lot of "the Steelers suck" syndrome going on from fans lately. That may be true of the offense at the moment, but it certainly is not true of the defense. Barring any key injuries (hope I didn't just jinx 'em), these guys are still one of the best defensive units in the league. As long as they maintain their current level of play, the Steelers will rarely be out of a game. We still have a shot at the playoffs, my bruthas... the Steelers just need the offense to keep from themselves digging holes.
One last comment for the legions of Kordell bashers. Stewart was definitely not on the money today (Edward's ongoing battle with "drop-itis" doesn't help), but he was perfect in the one area he needed to be... NO INERCEPTIONS. I've kept my mouth shut on the Kordell issue for the most part, but I tend to lean toward what Terry Bradshaw said about him last year... put some talent around him and he'll be fine. Patience is a virtue, my bruthas.
Next up: A Hillbilly Turkey Shoot at Three Rivers on Monday Night Football. Yeeee-Haaaaa!
Ya'all come back now, 'ya hear?
