There is a Bit of Good News

First, and probably the most important piece of news is that QB Ben Roethlisberger, who was rattled on a run in OT seems to be okay. Mike Tomlin said he had concussion like symptoms, but Roethlisberger appeared to be okay in the locker room according to reports.

“He took a blow. Needless to say, it was a concussion-oriented thing so I doubt he was going to come back into the football game,” Tomlin. “I don’t have a lot of information in terms of where he is or his level of availability, we will have more information as we proceed.”

Of course we shall see if Ben is going to be good enough for next weeks game vs the Ravens on the road.

Also, the other piece of good news is the outcome of the other three games involving the AFC North teams. Now no one cares about the crappy Browns, but it was funny to see them blow a game on the last play to the Lions 38-37. They are 1-9.

The Ravens lost at home to the Colts, and they are now 5-5 and have dropped 5 of their last 7. They of course will play the Steelers a week ago.

The best news and maybe the hardest to swallow considering what would have been if the Steelers would have won, is the letdown the Bengals had in Oakland, losing 20-17. The loss puts them at 7-3, and they remain just a game ahead in the standings over the Steelers, but of course they have that important tie-breaker.

So if you want to look for something good on this lousy Sunday night, there it is.

  1. The glass is still half full! That was a horrid loss yesterday. Steelers can really right the ship with a win in Baltimore. Do not take the Ravens lightly, they will play there best game against the hated Steelers. If our Black-n-Gold can match the intensity and get out of there with a win, it will go a long way to making a run.What worries us is, Big Ben’s health. Sunday is the most important game of the season. Until the next one.It is going to take much better coaching,execution and accountability to beat the Ravens in Baltimore. With both teams reeling, the winner will be the one who believes in themselves more.
