    Are you pumped???

  • Yough 61

    really looking forward to the game, worried about the health of the Steelers though. If we can get some pressure on Peyton, that should help

    • Craig

      I agree. It’s all about pressuring Peyton. A year off has certainly not made him a scrambling QB. He’s a pocket passer.

  • Craig

    Here we go folks. Let’s do this. Pumped, but the butterflies are there!

  • Craig

    No huddle absent to start the drive. Should help the defense recover after plays.

  • Craig

    The question of the night will be – what terrible call will the replacement refs make?

  • Craig

    Foote with the sack! Alright – when they can get pressure in the pocket it works.

  • Craig

    Let’s see what Haley can bring to the game on this first series.

  • Dan the Intern

    Craig, thoughts on Manning? Nice seeing those pregame Audibles, but his throws seem a bit off. Not as tight as they used to be.

    • Craig

      A little lame duckish at times with the wobbly ball. Seems a little high which means he’s not stepping into them as much. Due to blitzing? Not so sure yet. We’ll see how this half progresses.

  • Craig

    There’s Wolfe, who we’ve been told to watch for, with a big hit on Redman from behind.

  • Dan the Intern

    @disqus_xK96QYqCTa:disqus You expecting Wallace or Brown to get more touches?

    • Craig

      I say Brown. And Wallace is up 1-0.

  • Craig

    Who gets more yards tonight – Manning or Roethlisberger?

    Signed into Twitter. I’m expecting big things from Moreno. I feel that the Steelers may be too cautious with the unknowns of Manning and allow the field to open up a bit. With the way Polamalu continues to play though, Moreno better watch that ACL!

  • Craig

    Here are the inactives for the evening:
    QB Charlie Batch
    S Ryan Clark
    RB Rashard Mendenhall
    LB Stevenson Sylvester
    OL Kelvin Beachum
    LB James Harrison
    DL Alameda Ta’amu

    • Craig

      Biggest concerns are Clark and Harrison. Those two out could really hamper the D.

      • http://twitter.com/berowsk Dan Borowski

        Ryan Clark having elevation problems again? That may be the strangest “injury” I’ve ever heard of.

        • Craig

          It’s because of his sickle cell condition. He almost died the last time he played in that elevation.

  • Craig

    My biggest fear with Lewis – inability to wrap up a receiver one on one after the catch.

  • Craig

    SSSSSSSSPLASH!

  • Craig

    Nice grab and lean by Manny Sanders.

  • Kari

    Ben looks good

    • Craig

      He’s doing ok so far. Didn’t step into that throw to Sanders because of the pressure. That’s ok as long as it doesn’t get away from him.

  • http://twitter.com/berowsk Dan Borowski

    Eww, run blocking not looking too great…

  • Craig

    Running on the outside is going to be difficult this evening. Keep it between the numbers

  • http://twitter.com/berowsk Dan Borowski

    Where would you place new(old) Manning and Roethlisberger when comparing them to the rest of the league? Top 10?

    • Craig

      Yes. Top 10 for both.

  • Craig

    Colon gets caught up in a bunch and lets Wolfe get through. Damn, Wolfe is fast to catch Ben and get enough of him for the sack.

  • Craig

    Love that Butler made this team!

  • http://twitter.com/berowsk Dan Borowski

    Great punt! Great pickup in Van Dyke. One of the fastest gunners in the league. Raiders should’ve never let him go.

    • Craig

      I completely agree. Some folks scratched their heads when this happened. Working out well thus far.

  • Craig

    There’s ol Horsey Face.

  • Craig

    Eeesh. Allen looked silly on coverage and attempted tackle.

  • Craig

    Nice way to take advantage of a Manning mistake.

  • Craig

    Run D is looking very solid right now.

  • Craig

    Steelers are starting to get a little rhythm. Quick passes are working.

  • Craig

    Dwyer working hard on every run. I actually picked him up deep in my FF draft. He may get big numbers when I need to sit other players due to bye weeks.

  • Craig

    Even in Denver you can hear ‘Heeeeeeeeeeaaaath’

  • Craig

    Terrible throw by Ben!

  • Greg

    1st and goal from the three and we don’t have the confidence to run even once. Really?

    • Craig

      I’m surprised with Dwyer in that they didn’t run once.

  • AAR

    Weve GOTTA get that TD

  • AAR

    So far running game stinks

    • Craig

      They are running to the wrong sides. They should focus more in the middle, IMO.

      • AAR

        That and we’re showing what we!re runnin right after the snap

  • Craig

    Here’s the no huddle. Let’s see how the D responds.

  • Craig

    Foote gets to Manning again. Almost had #2.

  • AAR

    Steamrolling to the end zone…dammit

  • Craig

    I understand it’s impressive that Manning is back. But for Christ’s sake, it’s not like he’s been gone for more than two or three years. Give it up Al and Cris.

    • AAR

      Unfortunately, what’s unimpressive is the D unable to stop the no huddle…

      • Craig

        Live by the zone blitz, die by the zone blitz. That’s LeBeau for ya.

  • Craig

    Can we please get a pass on first down???

  • AAR

    Sweet broken play!!!!

  • Craig

    Gilbert down. FML

  • Craig

    Legursky and Adams on the right side now.

  • Craig

    Brown vs. Bailey. Brown 1, Bailey 0

  • AAR

    WTF! We couldn’t successfully run in a flag football league!

  • Craig

    Starks is looking great. Though I shouldn’t say that or he might get injured.

  • Craig

    There’s NO QB who can extend a play like Big Ben

  • AAR

    Thank GOD for the passing game

    • Craig

      If they would run middle or left side (Starks) they would do much better.

  • Craig

    Heeeeeeeeaaatthhhh!!!!

  • AAR

    FINALLY!!!!! Great passing guys! Terrible running

  • AAR

    Still time for Peyton to lead em down the field…seriously!

    • Craig

      Takes a knee. Surprising.
