Every time I see that, I giggle just a little. Â C’mon, that’s funny. Ben got popped.
Now the game wasn’t so funny. Â More than 1.5 football fields of penalties against the Steelers? Â The score was already a blowout, what would it have been with less penalties. Â Bottom line, while it was a win, and a good solid win, it was far from pretty.
The Steelers need to do better than that to beat the Ravens and the Jets in upcoming games. Â In fact, they need to do better than that against the Bills this weekend.
Injuries, penalties, it’s just not pretty.
I was encouraged, however, by the offense – not boring, a little bit of a mix. Â And the defense looked more inspired than the previous game against the Patriots. Â But it was the Raiders.
There’s a lot of competition in the AFC and while I really want to get to playoffs, I also want to win.
Show me something Steelers. Â Play tough.
