Steelers-Titans one-liners

Coach Mike Tomlin said that the Steelers were miffed by “the premature reporting of our death.”  (Hey, at least he didn’t say they’re gonna “unleash hell” again.)

Steelers WR Hines Ward said that Titans RB Chris Johnson “[g]ave up.”

Steelers QB Charlie Batch would like to start in Week Three; “I always
want to throw my hat in the ring
.  It’s just a matter of if the
opportunity presents
itself.  I will be ready.”

Steelers NT Chris Hoke, subbing for Casey Hampton, may have had the game of his life.

KR Antonio Brown was an unlikely hero for the Steelers, taking the opening kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown.

Titans QB Vince Young, described as “[r]attled” by Steelers DE Brett Keisel, had this to say about the Pittsburgh defense:  “They did some things that I haven’t seen before.”

Young wasn’t complaining about getting slammed head first into the ground and not picking up 15 yards for roughing; “Those types of things don’t bother me,” Young said.  “But
eventually when I get to be a top-five quarterback in the league, then I
might get those calls. Right now, I’m way below, and I’m not going to
get those calls
.”
 
With 176 yards in two games, Titans RB Chris Johnson is only 136 yards off pace for his repeatedly-proclaimed goal of 2,500; he’ll need to average 166 over the last 14 games to get there and, at his current pace, he’ll need 1,180 yards in Week 17.

Titans DE Jacob Ford didn’t return after suffering a knee injury; it’s not believed to be serious.

Steelers chariman Dan Rooney visited with Titans coach Jeff Fisher after the game.

  1. The double standard on roughing penalties is ridiculous. if any other QB was picked up and slammed, it would be all over ESPN. In this case, we haven’t heard a mention of it. awful officiating in this game! That said, VY is horrible and is holding this team hostage…always good enough to beat the bad teams but he crashes in meaningful games against good teams.
    The Steelers and their collection of redneck fans should chill…the only cool about their team is Mike Tomlin and his gas station shades. Karma is gonna get them when Ben comes back, if he can keep his pig antics to himself between now and then.

    I love the attitude. But it’s either roughing or it’s not. Players shouldn’t get special treatment from the officials because of their name recognition.

  3. VY “But eventually when I get to be a top-five quarterback in the league”
    He will never learn will he, top 5 QB LOL

  4. Maybe you can compare the two plays where Young was hit and didn’t get the call versus Palmer getting hit and getting the call.

  5. Where are all the Tomlin haters @ now? He won with Cowher’s players blah blah derp blah derp blah derp.
    Steelers in 1st in the AFC North (as usual). I would say that it feels good, but I’m just use to it by now LOL
    Good luck to the Titans on the rest of their season. Titan’s d was very impressive yesterday. CJ2K will be back on track this week, Steelers D is just possessed right now.

  6. I’m a Steelers fan and the slamming of Young to the ground should have been called….it was uneccessary in my opinion…outside of that…total domination by the Steelers Defense…..no offense as of yet and that worries me. We should go into Tampa next week and win putting the record to 3-0…next is Baltimore at home…a tough one none the less…..coming out of the first 4 games and going into the bye week at 3-1 would be lovely….Ben will get two weeks of practice and then a tune-up game against the Browns for a 4-1 start…..I like it….

  7. Steelers WR Hines Ward said that Titans RB Chris Johnson “gave up.”
    heh… just enough to get them pissed and fired up for their meeting with the Cowgirls next week…
    0-3 is coming Jerry. No SB for you.

  8. When I saw the game looked as if the Steelers defense had Vince on the run all day, looking at one call was not the issue in this game. VY is still waiting for his college trophy and respect from NFL. Hey Vince you have to earn that and you just aren’t there this week.

    LOL I love it some inbred moron calling himself “Swampdonkey” has the stones to call Steelers fans “rednecks”!!! That’s classic!!! Dude there is actual culture in Pittsburgh unlike Nashville which has both kinds of music, “country and western”! LOL

    go back to your swamp jack ass.
    Go Steelers!!!!!

  11. Steelers SHOULD beat TB, yes. But quietly, the Bucs have had had a pretty good pass d since last year. That won’t bother the Steelers though because that’s not how they have been winning.

  12. @Swampdonkey …
    Coloring an entire fanbase with one stroke is stereotyping. I love Mike Tomlin. The shades are attractive, but what makes him cool is his character. If karma comes into play, Roethlisberger should have a good season since the evidence shows he never assaulted anyone–as the DA plainly stated if you bothered listening to his full comments rather than the few edited lines that appeared in the press. Although our QB can be a jackass, he was falsely accused and the first player ever suspended without any disciplinary issues, arrests, or substance infractions.
    Bitterness, bigotry, and ignorance … tsk, tsk. Such an ugly combination, Mr. Donkey.

  13. from a Ravens fan: “the Steelers defense is NASTY” … congrats, can’t wait until week 4
    …. oh and your offense is not much worse than ours right now …. 😉

  14. Hey Swampdonkey, the only karma that is going to happen when Ben returns is that the Steeler’s offense will probably start to score about 4 TDs a game, you donkey. YOU were probably one of the geniuses that said they would be 0-4 while Ben was out and that they should cut Ben and keep Dixon. Get lost, crybaby.
    That being said, I was cringing thinking they might call an unnecessary roughness penalty on that gang tackle. But it could have been ruled that no one Steeler performed roughness, and it was the combination of what the 3 tacklers did at the same time that caused Young to get awkwardly flipped. If it was only Harrison making his verison of the tackle Young may not have flipped as he did. Who knows, but in any event it was only 1 play. They miss about 20 holding calls every game etc. You can’t take away the spontaneity of the game, but you can prevent unnecessary roughness like an intentional clubbing to the head, etc.
    GO STEELERS!!

  15. Coach Mike Tomlin said that the Steelers were miffed by “the premature reporting of our death.”
    Why? Afterall, Terry Bradshaw had been prematurely pronounced dead before. Steelers should be used to it by now.

  16. somesome – can’t wait until we matchup, it will hopefully come down between our two teams again for the AFC North crown. Like it should be.

    And look what it did to him! Turned him into a raving lunatic 😉

    VY was obviously “concussed” from that play to make the comment he did………VY wouldn’t be a top 5QB in the Canadian football league or in arena football. He’s either concussed or “on sumpin”……time for a urine test for VY.

  19. It was the smell that made people believe the Steelers were dead. But Tomlin has been around long enough to know that it’s normal there.

    ****************************************
    Redneck fan base?!! Sweet, dude! So, just to be sure – you’re going to characterize people who live everywhere from Jersey to Virgina/DC to Pittsburgh to Florida to NYC to Arizona to NC, or anywhere else that has regions with a a sizable following of Steelers fans, as rednecks? Good job, pal – a very reasonable statement on your behalf.
    Also, what exactly is it that said redneck fan base should chill about – you were the first one that replied to the damned thread? GFY.
    One other thing – are you Titans fan?
