Bo Scaife is not a happy camper this morning:
"He dove at my leg. It was a cheap shot,'' Scaife said. "I have been playing my whole life and no one has ever hit me like that. So I know when it is real and when it is not real. So it was a cheap shot and I don't care if that gets back to him either.''
Since I'm going to their show Monday, today's Friday Jam is Metallica: Harvester of Sorrow. Such a harvester would have plenty to collect around this town today.
Steelers fans want to say our loss was karma for the towel stomping (it wasn't), but one thing was oft-over-looked last night: The Madden Curse! Troy P was on the cover, and now he's in the trainer's room.
Follow us through the jump for the good stuff....
Paul K has the postmortem, including some lame quotes regarding the special teams FAIL last night:
"I had a field goal blocked and a field goal missed," Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said, offering more when prompted. On the block there was penetration inside, on the miss the snap was low and despite a good hold Bironas was thrown off, Fisher said."
Jim Wyatt has seen a loss like this one before...
Our defense was stellar last night until the Steelers broke-out the no-huddle attack late in the game. At that point they started picking us apart. I understand that Cecil was trying to make them drive the field and attempt a lot of plays since penalties and sacks had killed their momentum before, but a few more blitzes would have been nice to see late.
Gary Estwick has notes from the press box at Heinz Field, including this gem which I was screaming when it happened:
*Rookie WR Kenny Britt needed to challenge Polamalu for that jumpball, even if all he did was knock it down.
Still, it was a strong debut for rookie Kenny Britt, who caught 4 passes for 85 yards. You have to love the size, routes, hands and athleticism Britt showed last night against the league's best defense.
Don Banks writes a lot about the Steelers here, but he makes some salient points about the Titans as well: like who needs Albert Haynesworth when you can get steady pressure like we got for much of the game?
