Steelers-Bears one-liners

Though K Jeff Reed has caught the bulk of the blame for the 17-14 loss to the Bears, DE Brett Keisel thinks the defense is responsible for the collapse; “When we have the lead going into the fourth quarter, we expect to be a
great defense and hold onto the lead
,” Keisel said. 

Steelers WR Santonio Holmes apparently knows a thing or two about grass:  “It wasn’t stable enough to be playing on it,” he said of the new sod at Soldier field, “but we’re professionals and we’ve got to adapt to situations.”

Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said of the improved rushing attack:  “I’d rather run for no yards and win.”

LB Lawrence Timmons (ankle) didn’t get the start on Sunday, with LB Keyaron Fox receiving the assignment.

Steelers owner Dan Rooney has attended both of the team’s regular-season games, with a trip to Ireland for his new day job in between.

Bears DE Alex Brown wasn’t happy about the play that resulted in a fourth-quarter ankle injury.

A week after looking like one of the many quarterbacks who have worn the orange “C” since the days of Sid Luckman, Jay Cutler turned it around.

Brian who?

World, meet Johnny Knox.  Johhny Knox, world.

K Robbie Gould, a Pennsylvania native, probably should stay in Chicago for the holidays this year.

    Pretty funny, considering the crap they call turf in the ketchup bowl is often closer to pea soup than stable turf.

    As a steelers fan I dont want to hear any talk about the turf. Both teams had to play on it. Santonio should be focused on the 3 drops he had (one was a sure td).
    Vox….visions of Deshea Townsend running down the turf of Heinz field after a Tony Romo interception? Romo threw 3 nice passes to the Giants Sunday night, but the new stadium looks great!

    Plenty of blame to go around, but start at the top, the conservative play calling to “PLAY NOT TO LOSE” which means you will…. instead of going for 1st downs & a TD, lets play for the dreaded FG attempt, smart….When Reed missed from 39 yds, what on god’s green earth makes Tomlin think he’ll make it from 43 in the weather & so on…. Bruce Arians is a retard, he has no idea what “IN GAME ADJUSTMENTS” means….next april’s draft had better be spent entirely on OFFENSIVE LINEMAN who can run block, & protect BEN from himself…

    I agree w/ Vox on this 1. Every year we read about problems w/ the field in Pittsburgh & every year the NFL gives them a pass (like they do other issues – ie see gambling interest ownership by Rooney family) with this poor excuse of a playing surface.

    Have to agree Vox. Another thing I find pretty funny is the look on Jerrah’s fabricated face after the Boys gag on another loss when most of America is watching. It never gets old.

    “We put No. 13 (Knox) in there, and he’s been turning out great,” quarterback Jay Cutler said. He’s in the right spots, and he’s making some adjustments on the move. He’s just out there using his ability, and I told him, ‘Congratulations, you’re no longer a rookie, you’re out there playing with the rest of us. You did some good things for us.’ ”
    I think that’s the most consecutive words Jay has ever said. Is this clown becoming a leader or something? I hope so; he’s my fantasy QB this year.

    Roethlisberger looked like crap against the Bears (of all teams), and the ketchup bowl is still a joke and a monument to exactly what extent the Rooneys are willing to humiliate themselves for the almighty dollar.

    How many playoff games has he won again?

    ..a Dallas fan, commenting on a monument to the almighty dollar? LMFAO. What a tool.

    Well don’t bust a gut because they’ll lose more games, like every other team in the NFL. What I find amusing is that for all the laughter and finger-pointing, the Cowboys have the exact same record as the Steelers, Eagirls, and Florio’s sweetheart Super Bowl pick Redskins… only the Cowboys lost a close one to a team that many that did not go to WVU have picked to go to the Super Bowl. The other ones pretty much got outplayed by a wide margin. Except for the Steelers, who merely choked away a late 7 point lead to a pretty crappy team.

    I tihink Ben threw for a touchdown and ran one in, and only ONE int . I think the game was a lot closer than it is being looked and at.. Unlike Homo who tried to throw a block like Ben and missed it completely, just admit it your in love with Ben and you just dont want Tony getting jealous. that is why you continoully trash him.

    “Real men play outdoors, on grass, in the rain and snow.”
    So I guess in your estimation the Steelers aren’t real men, since they play in mud.

  13. VoxVeritas says: Sep 22, 2009 10:18 AM

    “Romo looks like crap against everybody.”
    Sure, must be why he has the best overall winning percentage of all QBs not named Roethlisberger (who has proven himself to be nothing more than bus driver) or Brady.
    “a Dallas fan, commenting on a monument to the almighty dollar?”
    Actually it’s a commentary of how far some people are willing to go to make a dollar. Dude the Steelers have two giant ketchup bottles that simulate pouring thousands of gallons of ketchup into the stadium when the Steelers score. Dan Rooney had to take another job in a whole other country where they don’t know him just to get his self-respect back. Next time you talk to him tell him I’ll give him $20 to eat the urinal cakes in restrooms of the PGH Greyhound station like he used to do when he was a teen.

    Um….Vox, did you watch the game on Sunday? Ben was terrific. There were plenty of drops in that game, and he did what he needed to do. If Reed kicks like he normally does, Steelers win going away and we’re not even having this conversation.
    As for Romo, sheesh…..that guy is a freakin turnover machine, with an inate ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Methinks that he’ll NEVER win a single playoff game at this rate.

    “Pretty crappy” by what standard? Yours? Compared to who? All those glorious 2-0 teams? Your own annually overhyped 1-1 team?
    Or are we just taking refuge in history?
    Either way, it’s pretty early to be casting about such aspersions, isn’t it? Especially when your own team just choked harder than Buddy Ryan on a porkchop bone.
    Bears put up 10 unanswered points in the 4th, and flat-out outplayed the Steelers when the game was on the line.
    And nothing says that HAD Reed made that second FG, that the Bears wouldn’t have answered it anyway.
    I’m usually with you on most things, Vox (political or otherwise)–but taking potshots at the Bears for WINNING just doesn’t make sense.
    Funny, that’s how it always is–teams like the Pats, Colts, Steelers, etc. pull a victory out of their ass, and they’re lauded for “finding a way to win”–but whenever the Bears do it, the opposition always “choked”.
    This might be hitting below the belt, but you sound just like the mainstream media with that goofy tripe.

  16. i'm president charlie! says: Sep 22, 2009 12:09 PM

    Romo lost the game for the Cowboys.
    Ben put the Steelers in position to win the game twice.
    Sounds like the story of both of their careers.

    ===========================
    Like I said above–suppose Reed DOES make that kick to make it 17-14.
    It’s a bit presumptuous to think Cutler & the Bears couldn’t have pulled off a tying/winning drive anyway, isn’t it?
    Either way, it’s all speculative now. We already know the real outcome.

    —————————————————
    The Giants are the only team in the NFC with more wins than the Bears over the last 5 seasons.
    Get a clue.
    Or at least cable T.V.

    Hey Vox.
    Roethlisberger 2 rings
    Romo 0 rings.
    2 > 0
    Roethlisberger > Romo
