We'll allow these kind of shenanigans because we won.
Of course, the Steelers couldn't make it easy on our tickers.
We may have vomited at several different points in the evening [4th quarter].
But the Steelers got a very much needed win and now move to 2-2, right behind the Ravens and Bengals who are both now 3-1 (thank you, New England and we expected nothing less from you, Cleveland).
If we had told you before the game that Rashard Mendenhall - who spent last Sunday being publicly shamed for missing assignments - would end the night with 166 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns, what would you have said?
Wreckingball was in full effect.
We can't tell you how amazing it felt to have an effective running game.
Some early highlights...
I'll bet you never thought you'd see Doug Legursky at fullback.
By the way, if anyone has a link to video of Mendenhall obliterating that dude Stephen Cooper (was it?), send it over.
It wasn't the most flawless victory, but it was a victory.
There were plenty of great things to take away from this game (like most of the first 3 quarters).
And there were also plenty of things that made you wonder if we were being punk'd by Ashton Kutcher.
Just business as usual for Big Ben and friends.
Recap coming at some point tomorrow.
Until then, feel free to deposit any thoughts, concerns, issues, or...gasp...praises(!) in the comments.
