The Steelers haven't allowed an offensive TD not in garbage time through three games.
The Bucs picked Chuck Batch's first pass of the day off at our own 31, ran 62 plays and had the ball for 33 minutes today, and yet, barely mustered 13 points.
Conversely, Rashard Mendenhall flexed his nuts for 143 yards and a touchdown today, while Chaz Batch went 12/17 for 186 yards and 3 TDs (despite 2 INTs), and the Steelers exploded for 38 points (31 offensive points, almost surpassing their total of 34 offensive points through the first two games).
Everyone is going to suck on Chuck's dick after this performance, since after all, he played out of his 55-year-old mind.
And I love it.
Don't get me wrong, I love Chuck Batch and I'm happy that he ripped it up in his first start in three years, but two of his three TD passes were underthrown and should have been intercepted.
On the other, Hines was wide open in the end zone.
Basically - this was supposed to be the Steelers "easiest" game out of the first four, and surprise surprise, it was [so far].
Unfortunately, the Browns couldn't pull one out of their asses against the Ravens, despite Peyton Hillis' 144 yard performance.
And so, we come home 3-0, to face the 2-1 Ravens at Heinz Field.
Though, you'd never have known today wasn't a home game...
If you had asked me three weeks ago if I thought the Steelers would come into next week undefeated, I'd have literally smacked you in the mouth.
So this, frankly, is a gift.
Full recap to come tomorrow.
In the meantime, feel free to let us all know your preliminary thoughts in the comments.
