    The defense didnt play that bad

    the defense only gave up 1 toucdown and the drive started within the 20 so i dont think we did to bad on defense except for the fact we didnt get any turnovers but the steelers are known for not turning it over. we lost mostly for the turnovers in the redzone and the fumbles on special teams, we basically beat ourselfs
    our only sure-handed receiver

    Our defense played great. It's just our offense couldn't get anything going what so ever. We are going to have to change that if we want to go anywhere. Out d will be fine though.

    They played ok. They did give up so big 3rd downs like the 3rd and 28 pass for a first down.

    The offense didn't play too bad. Well, at least in the first half. They just couldn't convert in the red zone.
    I Love Kerry Collins (and John Rocker).

    i was actually quite proud of our d today. obviously this qb is smarter than last weeks and wasn't going to throw 5 picks, so don't let last week spoil this week. we only lost by 15, that's two td's. if our offense could have done something, anything, just one damn thing......we would have won.

    I liked this D a lot more than the other games, because it wasn't based on turnovers. Good teams we face won't make turnovers, and you have to be physical and shut them down into 3 and outs to play well.

    Turnover defenses will always get exposed.

    They played good, imagine if they would have been playing with a lead, we could have easily been up 14-3 with little time left in the second quarter but we self destructed.

    Re: The defense didnt play that bad

    Despite a couple offensive errors i too am pretty impressed with our performance today. I would've liked to see a TD at least to help my confidence in our offense, but our defense has continued to amaze me with their improvement this season.

    K-Rob was about the only good thing on Offense.

    I was saying the same thing about the D, the whole game. The D was holding them in the Run Game until Parker got a few big runs on us in the second half.

    The D was playing with intensity.

    I liked it very much even though we lost.
