PFTonSNF: Amazing the Patriots have had the better pass rush tonight. Steelers getting nothing done up front.

AskSNF: why does brady have all this time to throw??? crazy
PFTonSNF: Lot’s of max protect and quick throws.

PFTonSNF:As well as the Patriots have played, this game is long from over. Patriots defense gives up yards in bunches.

AskSNF: Who is going to win the NFC West?
PFTonSNF: Have to go with the Seahawks at this point. 3-1 in division. Rams can’t win on road. Can 49ers rally? Doubt it.

PFTonSNF:Protection problems is half Steelers OL, half Ben. But if they can’t protect against Pats, big problem long-term.

AskSNF: can the raiders win the west
PFTonSNF: Tied for first. Tough schedule coming up but they have a decent shot. Watch out for Bolts.

PFTonSNF:AFC is too deep. Jaguars secondary is too thin.

AskSNF: Why did the Steelers defense wait an extra 10 minutes before they came out after the half?
PFTonSNF: That was a BIG stop. Three and out and no time off the clock. Long way to go here.

AskSNF: How do the browns beat the Patriots but the steelers are losing to the patriots?
PFTonSNF: That’s why we all love the NFL. (And Pats respond very well to losses and made huge mistakes last year.)

AskSNF: Would you say Ben looks comfortable in the pocket?
PFTonSNF: He looks comfortable handing off.

PFTonSNF: Mike Wallace is a bad man.

PFTonSNF: Patriots shut down Steelers inside 10 last time. Would be huge win for them if they do it again.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio is chilly gone? 1 to 10 (before Packers game)
PFTonSNF: Owner said no, said let’s call it a 2.

PFTonSNF: Patriots blitz six and Ben has to get rid of it too quick.

PFTonSNF: Oh my. Jeff Reed chunked it. Paper towel dispensers in Pittsburgh better watch out tonight.

AskSNF: What happened on that kick?
PFTonSNF: Jeff Reed happened.

PFTonSNF: Welker having his best game of the year. 8 for 89.

AskSNF: Hey Mike, I am surprised Brady’s hair did not slow him down on the TD run!
PFTonSNF: He’s very good at those when teams don’t cover the center. What a statement game.

AskSNF: Waffle House or IHOP?
PFTonSNF: Can’t beat Waffle House

AskSNF: Its over
PFTonSNF: Agreed, although you still keep watching for our snappy analysis.

PFTonSNF: Thanks! And the schedule just get better as the season goes on.

PFTonSNF: Many reasons for Steelers to be concerned about this one. Biggest: Patriots have been way more physical. Really.

PFTonSNF: Heath Miller – 2nd TE in Steelers history to reach 3,000 yards.

AskSNF: Is Sidney Rice playing next week?
PFTonSNF: It’s up to him. Folks thought he’d be ready this week. I think there’s a good chance.

AskSNF: It’s never over until it’s over!
PFTonSNF: Good point.

AskSNF: actually I keep watching because I can’t get anything else on my laptop here at work!
PFTonSNF: Thanks for spending work with us.

AskSNF: Is this a game again?
PFTonSNF: Steelers need a stop and then yes.

AskSNF: Who do you like tomorrow night?
PFTonSNF: Think the Eagles will take it to Washington and get in a first place tie.

AskSNF: Do the Bears really have a shot to win the NFC North?
PFTonSNF: Their schedule will make it VERY tough. I doubt it.

AskSNF: Am i the only one that thinks its awesome when steam comes off bald players heads?
PFTonSNF: Nope.

PFTonSNF: Steelers need a stop right now. They really needed it a few plays ago. Tick, tick, tick.

AskSNF: Is Tom Brady the new Wayne Gretzky?
PFTonSNF: Not sure what that means but … yes.

AskSNF: With how dominating the Browns offensive line has been do you think Joe Thomas should be a MVP canidate?
PFTonSNF: That’s a stretch.

AskSNF: is now the time to bring in hines ward for a deep threat to open up the field more? even though you risk injury?
PFTonSNF: Not worth it. Seems like he has a head injury.

AskSNF: Game set match
PFTonSNF: Agreed. Just as it was getting interesting. Steelers were playing with no margin for error.

AskSNF: How about them cowboys! Do you think it’s feasible that we can get a wild card position? Quote me, the Eagles will lose on Monday
PFTonSNF: Love the optimism … but you are nuts.

PFTonSNF: Wasn’t sure the Patriots had this kind of performance in them. Still have the Colts, Jets, Dolphins, Packers left on schedule.

AskSNF: do the jets have jets a cause for optimism in showing that they can win in tough situations, or are they showing crack that will cost them
PFTonSNF: Today they played very well. The Lions game was not a good sign but overall it should be encouraging.

AskSNF: what do you think the odds are of the Chargers winning the AFC west?
PFTonSNF: I’d say one in two. They have the best schedule of the three teams left.

AskSNF: how about an onside kick for pittsburgh now?
PFTonSNF: Almost worked. Patriots just need a few first downs here. A field goal would be a bonus.

AskSNF: The Pats seem to keep rolling regardless of the interchangable parts they have ever year-do you think thats mostly due to Tom Brady?
PFTonSNF: Bingo. Coaching staff helps too but its mostly Brady of course. Same thing in Indy.

PFTonSNF: Why would the Steelers take a timeout on first down and not second down?

AskSNF: OK Mike, game is winding down now, Don’t forget the shout out to Greg in Wisconsin…
PFTonSNF: Shout.

AskSNF: Could someone kick Florio? He seems to be asleep again.
PFTonSNF: Thanks for that. But didn’t have to kick there.

AskSNF: Why has Polumolu been so quiet today? is it because of all the play action?
PFTonSNF: Really think the Patriots gameplanned to get him out of the mix.

AskSNF: is aaron hernendez playing?
PFTonSNF: Yes, but he’s been on the sideline a lot with Crumpler and Gronkowski as the two tight ends.

AskSNF: What do you think is hapenning late with the Patriots defense?
PFTonSNF: Perhaps let up a bit, Steelers figured them out. Got less aggressive. Just trying to hold on.

AskSNF: @MikeFlorio Are the Giants in trouble come 2nd half of the season?
PFTonSNF: That was a fluke, let-down game. they are a good team.

AskSNF: Why is it that aaron hernandez is behind Crumpler and Gronkowzki?
PFTonSNF: Think they just wanted to go with a power pacakage.

PFTonSNF: Well, that was drawn out. Thanks for hanging around guys. Giants-Eagles next week. See you all then.

  1. AskSNF: The Pats seem to keep rolling regardless of the interchangable parts they have ever year-do you think thats mostly due to Tom Brady?
    PFTonSNF: Bingo. Coaching staff helps too but its mostly Brady of course. Same thing in Indy.

    I dunno I think it has alot to do with Coaching. Look at the Eagles they get chastised as a organization b/c the way they get rid of players with out remorse. No matter how great they were for the team in the past or how long they’ve been with the organization. Every year they do it and afterwards they just go out and find new players to take there place. But even with all that turnover every year for the last 11 years they have been in the playoff hunt. Even during seasons when there starting qb was lost to injury they still were in it. And this year that qb is gone and there still in the thick of things.

    Who is the 1 person that has been here through it all. Andy Reid. This season and all the seasons Mcnabb was hurt shows u its the coach just as much as the qb that keeps teams like the Eagles, Pats and Colts on top.

    The Eagles success without Mcnabb is a perfect example of how much difference a good coach can make.
