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.

– James Harrison doesn’t always say much, but when he does, it’s usually gold. Example: “You don’t want to injure people. I don’t want to injure anybody. But I’m not opposed to hurting anybody.”

    There is so much I love about this win. Most of all, it’s against the Browns. So glad you guys don’t have to eat crow for breakfast today.

    I’ve read some grumblings about the Steelers low scoring early in the game. But I don’t find it worrisome considering the field position. (I ALMOST wished Harrison would tackle the Browns punter.) The offense deserves some serious credit for putting together long drives.

    Also, I like how Colt McCoy played. So much that I’m worried. If the Browns can get him some protection and weapons, I’m afraid of what he’s going to do Jan. 2.

    I’ll hang up and listen.

    Carl,Seriously. This could have been a VERY LONG WEEK had Colt McCoy managed to win that game. Not even God could see fit to teach me a life lesson by letting the Browns be victorious. Also, random: Tomlin’s comments on Deebo’s two huge hits: “Legal hits, not fineable hits, he played good football. James is always ready to deliver for his teammates. That’s why they have so much respect for him. He’s a good football player man. He always delivers timely performances when you need them. Talking to a lot of young players, they want to know the recipe for being a dominant, great player. It’s not only delivering plays but delivering plays at a timely manner, significant plays. And he does that for us for the most part.”Not sure if the league agrees with that.

      Screw the league.

    You guy’s surely recall the movie “The Program”…..? The coach asks his player ‘are you injured or are you hurt?’ I don’t have a problem with Deebo….I realize he is on our team…but it’s the NFL folks…..people get hurt….

    And I really really liked the game plan early on as Carl stated. The ‘kill shot’ to Heath was an overlooked call in my opinion….

    I wasn’t worried about this game at all. It seemed like the Steelers were sort of feeling their way in the first half and then really turned it on in the 2nd half.

    And yes McCoy played well, but it was only one start. He’s a 3rd round pick, not a potential superstar. At least I hope not.

    Good game plan by Arians. Good game plan by Lebeau. I really thought the Steelers played well yesterday. Big game coming up!

      I’ll admit I didn’t see anything wrong with the offensive gameplan this week. Arians seemed to make good use of both the run and the pass and he did not call the stupid end around for -3.

    If the Titans lose tonight, all of our 2010 opponents to date will have lost this week.

  • Jason Armes

    I think Deebo even tried to knock Ryan Clark out on that play. I think someone pissed in his corn flakes that morning for sure!!

    The young trio of Wallace, Sanders and Brown sure has shown flashes of talent.

    My kids sometimes watch an animated show called Handy Manny, so that’s what I’ve been calling Sanders. He seems to be living up to the name. My favorite part of the show is when Manny, who is a fix-it guy, talks to his tool sidekicks and says things like, “Thanks, tools!”

  • Cols714

    One more thing, a lot of people keep saying that Arians should call more play action. Maybe that’s true. But maybe the reason why it is so effective is because they don’t use it that much. Which is why they can can go 98 yards or whatever in three plays.

  • EasyLikeSundayMorning

    No RB has more than 42 rushing yards on us so far. Looking at the rest of the schedule, Ray Rice may be the only top back we have left to face. That could lead to some historic accomplishments for our run D.
