    The tackling wasn’t so good on that drive, but based on the fact it ended with a net 15 yard punt, we will take it!

    Alright, gave up more yards than I’d like to see in the first series, now let’s run it down their throats!!

    December 23, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Great start on offense, Sanders with the TD and now the D will take over!

  15. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Now you’d think Carolina would be smart enough to know when they flush Big Ben they are asking for trouble!

  16. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Is there a question as to wether he had control of the ball?

  17. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    BS CALL!!! It was in his hands the entire time!

  18. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    That’s how you fill the running lanes!

  19. bigcat4453

    I want to see Harrison Light Clausen up!!

  20. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Farrior with the big SACK on 4th down!!

  21. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Good play by Ben to hold the ball for that extra second!

  22. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    Here we go with the PENALTIES that eat you alive!!

  23. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Ben floated that one a little too much

  24. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Why is the clock stopped?

  25. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Working on Ben’s nose, broken again?

  26. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    That big holding penalty set up that failed series..

  27. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    That was a great throw, Clausen!!

  28. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    TOUCHDOWN STEELERS!!!!!!

  29. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Ben’s already 6/8 for 116 yards and a TD!!

  30. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    This game should be over, the Panthers should not get close to 10 tonight

  31. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Sloppy play by Ben, turnover when they had a great shot to put the game away

  32. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Turnovers will keep the other team in the ball game!

  33. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Ben pulled out to quick on that fumble!

  34. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Flag takes away the Panthers first down, another break!

  35. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Nice run, Redman!!

  36. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Sorry, Flozell the hotel is awful

  37. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Nice pitch and catch… 35 yard pickup on 2 and 18

  38. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Ben in tune with Sanders and Miller, getting close to 17-0

  39. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Now we might have Carolina out of their game plan. Not sure you can run the ball down 3 scores. Steelers get the ball to start the second half too!

  40. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Big Ben 13-for-15 for 198 yards with a TD

  41. Matt Loede

    December 23, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Great catch by Wallace, they do want to put this totally away by half!

  42. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    That sure looked like a poor spot on that fourth down attempt.

  43. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Need a big stop here on 3rd down..

  44. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    Nice run, Mendy!!

  45. bigcat4453

    December 23, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    27-0 This one’s for the late great “Dandy” Don Meridith, “Turn out the lights, the party’s over”. Even if he was a former Cowboy, he was still a good color man on Monday night!!
