Morning Links (and Daily Thread)…

A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.

– Behind the Steel Curtain continues its look at the greatest non-Super Bowl wins in Steelers history, and the most recent is the 2008 AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. This game is probably at the top of my list of games that I’ve actually attended. I remember Troy Polamalu’s interception return, and the people in the stands jumping so much that you couldn’t even see the field. Good times. [Behind The Steel Curtain]

– OK, I know Jason Worilds has been off to a slow start at camp (injuries and what not) but I think it’s a bit early to be mentioning him in the same discussion as Alonzo Jackson, even if the discussion is centered on how he’s not yet an Alonzo Jackson-type bust. [Steelers Depot]

– Lawrence Timmons is ready to show his best, and he wants sacks. A lot of sacks. [Tribune-Review]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: Kordell Stewart to Bobby Shaw. Yeah, it happened.

    Can’t the Steelers draft a LB without him being immediately compared with Alonzo Jackson? What is with our obsession with one bad 2nd round draft pick?

    I love the Bobby Shaw clip, I remember exactly where I watched that game, in a bar in Atlanta. Eating ribs and chicken wings.

    Ironically, I don’t think anybody ever compared Bruce Davis to Alonzo Jackson. That’s how bad Davis was.

    Barred from viewing clips at work, but I have a feeling I know which one that is… :)

    Someone explain the Baltimore lovefest that’s going on all over the place right now? I know Ray Rice is good, I know their OL is really good, I know Ngata is good. But the rest is just kind of blah. Joe Flacco may or may not be good, and they are relying on Boldin and Stallworth to beef up their passing game.

    I’m just not sold on them, but then I read stuff like this from football outsiders…”Mike: Baltimore is going to be scary good. I think watching them may actually cause injury.”

    What gives with this thinking?

    Listening to sports radio on the way into work today, I found myself thinking, “what if Revis had been drafted by the Steelers instead of the Jets?”

    My conclusions:

    1) The Steelers would not have signed him to that asinine 6-year contract that the Jets did, which is the catalyst for this entire situation.

    2) The Steelers would not have even entertained the question of a raise over this offseason, and hence Revis would likely not be holding out.

    3) The Steelers defensive backfield would be: Revis, Taylor, Clark, Polamalu – wow.

    4) Foote would never have left for the Lions.

    Is this the one where the Steelers were down at least 14 even after he scored and then Shaw flipped up his jersey to reveal a Superman t-shirt?

    It’s the ESPN effect…The Ravens are their designated “tough as nails” team. As opposed to the dreamy goodness of Brady and Co. who represent “finesse”.

    Remember when we last won the Super Bowl? How historically great that Steelers D was? No? Neither can ESPN cause they were swinging from the Ravens privates all freakin year. Greatest D since their 2000 D!!

    It’s going to be a pleasure to watch Balt lose a lot of shootouts this year. They are going to get rained on by opposing passing attacks.

    Because I know some of you are way too lazy to scroll…

    Some thoughts on Tomlin’s presser re: the Lions game.

  • Gretz

    No, that was the year before, I think. This was the game that clinched the division in ’01.

  • Randy Steele

    Alonzo Jackson? No. I think a more accurate prediction might be that Jason Worilds will be a Lawrence Timmons-type bust.
