Steelers-Giants one-liners

From the “Everything He Says Will Now Be Scanned For Possible Innuendo” file, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger had this to say about the 24-17 win over the Giants:  “I think we showed some good things tonight.”

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin offered a one-word description of CB Ike Taylor’s early ejection for fighting with Giants WR Hakeem Nicks:  “Dumb.”

First-year Steelers WR Arnaz Battle has had eight offensive coordinators in eight years of football.

Steelers QB Dennis Dixon was solid again, completing seven of eight passes for 82 yards and leading the team to two long touchdown drives, one of which was fueled by a nifty 22-yard run on a broken play.

Will the Steelers cut QB Charlie Batch before Week 1, at which time his $855,000 base salary would become guaranteed?

Playing the entire game, QB Rhett Bomar completed 13 of 26 passes for 167 yards and an interception.

The Giants generally were pleased with the performance of the starting defense.

So far, so good for the return of Giants S Kenny Phillips, who missed nearly all of 2009 with a serious knee injury; “It’s like riding a bicycle, you really never forget how to
do it,” Phillips said.  “I didn’t get a chance to make too many plays, but in the little
time I was out there, everything felt great.”

Giants RB Brandon Jacobs missed the game with a neck injury that, per coach Tom Coughlin, “came out of nowhere.”

Giants WR Ramses Barden missed the game with a back injury.

  1. Tomlin’s one word description of Ike’s fight coincides with the rest of the world’s one word description of Ike.

  2. “Came out of nowhere and gave it to him in the neck”, were Coughlin’s exact words about the stunned victim.

  3. Ike Taylor. Easily one of this past decades’ best cover corners.
    Ike Taylor. Easily one of this past decades’ worst ball-skill corners.
    If he could catch a ball like he has shut down top-flight WR’s, he’d have an outside shot at the HOF. As it is, he’ll have to someday hope to settle for joining Clay Matthews, Bernie Kosar, Boomer Esiason and Donnie Shell in the Hall of Very Good (located in Buffalo, New York.)

  4. it sounds as though rhomar wasnt completely hideous…..
    as far as the hall of very good located in buffalo, parking is free but u have to park wide right of the building lol

  5. I enjoyed the running of fullback Isaac Redman for Pittsburgh when he was given the chance. The Giants running back played well. I forgot how good Leftwich can throw the deep ball until last night.
    I see the referees had to put in the mandatory phantom personal foul calls against the Steelers late in the game to show their compliance with the political arm of the NFL. Which has nothing to do with contact football. I wonder when the fine committee will start?

  6. Ike Taylor gets burned year after year in big spots. He is one of, if not the most overrated DB in the NFL.
