Regardless of how this turns out, why is it that the entire world could see that Jamaal Charles was a major upgrade over Larry Johnson except for the Chiefs coaching staff?

And Pittsburgh has to punt, which made Hines Ward smile.

Pittsburgh has to be 47-0 in OT coin toss wins.

$$$ Could be related to the dollars the Chiefs were paying Johnson vs. Charles. Sometimes teams have to wait until certain dates to let guys go. Could be Haley thought Johnson had some gas in the tank. Unfortunately it wasn't the right choice for the Chiefs, I am actually more suprised with Scott Pioli than with the coaching staff. I feel that once Gonzalez was dealt to Atlanta they should have tried to get a 3rd rounder or less for Johnson.

If Succop makes this field goal, Hines Ward will not be, finally, smiling.

Ouch! Tough game for Pittsburgh to lose. Luckily for them Baltimore lost to Indy today.

Jeff Reed is probably the Steelers best field goal kicker of all time but why don't they just place a "designated kicker" on the roster who can kick balls past the endzone on kickoffs? That would solve a lot of their kick off issues.

(Dallas has a designated kicker)

Some of you will be happy to know that Big Ben is out vs Baltimore.

" Foxsports.com first reported that Roethlisberger would not play. The Steelers continue to list Roethlisberger as questionable, meaning there is a 50-50 chance he will play. "

The Worldwide Leader just reported that he is out. This means that Dennis Dixon will be the starting QB against Baltimore. Might as well hand it to the Ravens.

With Troy out, the Steelers just are not the same team and most likely would have lost anyway, so now it becomes a matter of degree.

As a Steeler fan, I am glad Ben isn't playing as he has much more to think about than a game against Baltimore in 2009.

I'm afraid Big Ben drastically shortened his career by riding a crotch rocket around without a helmet. Maybe he can be the poster boy for obeying helmet laws...when your head is traveling above 35 mph it needs protection. One of Ben's biggest assets was his durability...he's so big and strong he could always take quite a beating and keep coming back. It's a scientific fact that the more concussions you have, the more susceptible you are to another concussion and he's had his head forced into a windshield at some speed in excess of 35mph. That's one massive brain trauma and he will forever be prone to debilitating concussions. In that one moment, he went from Steve Young circa 1991 straight to Steve Young circa 1999...bypassing about 8 years of concussions with one big one. It's a shame, but just watch, he'll be a concussion risk for the rest of his career and his career will be very short. :(

Love the assessment, though Steve Young and Ben Roethlisberger don't belong in the same sentence.

Ain't that the truth? However, this guy's gonna ride his defense and two Super Bowl wins to Canton, and that's a shame when you consider some of the guys who aren't there.

I don't think it's fair to give the majority of the credit to Pitt's defense. I hate the Steelers with a passion, but there's no denying how good Big Ben is. He makes that offense go, especially with his improvising. And Big Ben is the one that took them down that field last year to beat the Cardinals, it was the defense that put them behind in the first place with the Cards scoring drive.

Like Tom Brady, I think you can give the first super bowl to them just because of the defense. The 2nd(and third for Brady) the quarterbacks played just as large of a role.

Oh, I don't disagree that he's a good QB, and I should've left the comment about the defense out of it. But I'm just not willing to enshrine him in Canton just because his team won the Super Bowl twice, but I have a feeling that his ticket is punched because of it.

I agree with you on that point. I'd say that he certainly has a shot at it eventually, if he puts together a good enough body of work. But I don't feel his ticket to Canton is punched by any means.

We played well but lost in overtime.

Roethlisberger has never led the league in anything, other than interceptions thrown.

He isn't dominant- his receivers aren't dominant. The offense isn't dominant.

If you put him on the Chiefs, he wouldn't make them any better.

That team is good because of its defense- when you allow 3.2 yards a carry, nobody is going to do much to you.

Roethlisberger is not a hall of famer, and his assertion that after Brees, Manning, and Brady, his name is next, he is dreaming. I'd rather have Schaub, Rivers, Palmer just to name a few.

He lets his defense go to his head.
