    Darren Sproles is everything that Bush was supposed to be but never was. The guy is a player – in a tiny wrapper.

    And as always it would be sweet if Roethlisberger could score more than 10 points in the first three quarters of a big game.

    Dude, enough with the Steelers are getting old talk. We heard you the first 20 mentions and nothing has changed. As in nothing has changed since last year when they were the #2 defense in the league. So at least let them show signs of slowing down before you beat it into the ground.

    Please do not use Percy for kick returns. He is too valuable to be lost on one bad return.
