Ok, last night, well at least the 2nd half was the type of offensive output we've been expecting all season.

Doesn't mean things are perfect, but this week's Goats and Gameballs should be interesting.

Goats:
Joey Porter/Keith Butler - half way through the season and no Deebo
Chris Collinsworthless - calling Jesse James a bandit and not an outlaw. Know history.
Defensive front 7 - lack of tackling during run plays
Secondary - blown coverage allowing big plays down field.
Haley - apparently this year he took out the plays with crossing routes and underneaths

Gameballs:
Martavis Bryant - recovering ABs fumble late in the first allowed to get 3 more points on the board
Ben - zero INTs
Jesse James - taking advantage of plays coming his way
Coty Sensabaugh - his time to shine and he shined

Either Ben or Haley ... whichever one is forcing every pass outside and refusing to use the middle of the field.

Game ball AB, he balled out. Best receiver in the game, I don't care if he's not 6'4 and doesn't run a 4.2, there is no one better than him at that position.

Defense: Cam Heyward. This dude's a beast. I think he may even be better than Aaron Smith

Speaking of defense, the FO has done a great job acquiring and developing DL depth. In the past we've been screwed any time a starting DL player went down. Though now it seems like we have great depth players in LT Walton and Tyson Alualu (who I would say other than Haden was our best FA pickup in a while).

Hilton and Sensabaugh
Heyward (7 sacks on season...when is last time a D lineman had 10?)
Conner-he didn't do a whole lot last night but I left the fierce-smash into the other team- running style everytime I see it

Goats:

tackling and big plays on D

Gameballs:

Ben Roethlisberger - By and far his best performance of the year. Did throw a couple of questionable passes at double coverage but looked so much better overall. Ben was spreading the ball out to all of the receivers and picked the Titans' defense apart. Nice to see, hope to see more from Big Ben.

Antonio Brown - Is this even remotely surprising at this point? This guy is the best WR in the NFL. He's a modern day version of Jerry Rice and has the stats to prove it. We are watching a once in a generation kind of player.

Le'Veon Bell - Selfless in this game, just went out and played hard where he could and did enough to keep the Titans defense on their toes.

Cam Heyward - Dude is a monster. So happy to see him out there balling out. Team leader in sacks with 7. Impressive from a 3-4 DE.

Stephon Tuitt - Another monster on our D-Line. Disruptive, shuts down the running game, and creates pressure on opposing QBs.

Vince Williams - You know I thought ILB was going to be a weak link with the departure of Law Dog Lawrence Timmons. I was wrong. Williams has cemented himself as a force at ILB and he has 6 sacks on the season from his ILB spot. Impressive.

Ryan Shazier - Shazzy was just being Shazzy. All over the field, always around the football.

Coty Sensabaugh - Played very well for it being his first start of the season. Did have the one long TD he gave up to Rishard Mathews but I put that on a poor scheme as well, they didn't leave Sensabaugh with any safety help over the top and put him completely by himself on an island with a speedy receiver. Other than that, Sensabaugh had an early interception that helped set the tone for the Steelers defense which was stifling most of the game.

Sean Davis - This kid is special. Very gifted athlete. Flies around the field, always around the football. Snagged himself an INT last night as well.

Mike Hilton - Early interception kind of got the defense going in my opinion. This kid has been a real gem for the Steelers. He's good in coverage, they can play him all over the field, and he's a threat every time he blitzes. Really like what I've seen from Hilton so far this season.

GOATS:

Martavis Bryant - Yes he saved a fumble, but he also failed to catch a TD pass. Bryant is wildly inconsistent for a guy that acts like he's the best in the world, and it's everyone else's fault that he's not producing.

Artie Burns - Delanie Walker almost caught a TD pass, but bailed out Artie because he dropped it. Artie needs to tighten up his coverage and stop taking gambles.

Gameballs:

Ben should have had 1 Int. in that game but the D-lineman dropped it. Other than that and a couple bad throws he was as good as he's been all year.

AB is the best WR in the league period. I was thinking he had 3 TD catches but not much in yardage until they showed he had something like 144.

Bell was the ultimate team player and that one block on the blitz pick up put him over the top.

Second half D showed we can adjust.

Goats:

Haley for calling Bryants number continually when he was dropping balls. Yeah I agree the fumble recovery was key but doesn't earn him a gameball. Why weren't we running the ball more?

O-line played lousy in pass coverage. The few runs they didn't exactly blow holes in the line.

The poor tackling by everyone on defense in the first half.

For 2 weeks in a row we showed we can play the first half lie shit but tighten up and win ugly. If we come out playing from the start the way we finished the last 2 weeks I don't know if anyone can beat us. This team is built to win it all if we get on the same page.

My thoughts exactly.

the reason I gave Marcus Mariota a game ball because of take aways his 2 int's really easy picks for the Steelers defense and the Steelers offense got 17 points from a short field, how good is the Steelers offense?

40-17=23

how good is the Steelers offense? imo not as good as the 40 -17 Steelers win it is a little of misleading.

Maybe true, but more often than not, with any team scoring 40+ points, turnovers are a part of the reason
