Ramble On... E-mail

I'm not going to repeat myself all season, here.

Should the Jaguars have been within one score of winning that game?

Repeat after Tomlin...

Who cares.

The bottom line is they were. But in the end, we got the last laugh.

Again, I've said it about a thousand times in probably a thousand different ways - I can't remember a time recently when these Steelers were in the habit of handily beating teams on a consistent basis without a fight.

Convincing wins in the NFL are a relative rarity in general.

Exhibit A - a couple of weeks ago in Houston, the same thing basically happened, only the Steelers were the aggressors who eventually couldn't pull it out in time.

We'll take the W any way we can get it.

And hopefully by Week 10 my fingernails will have grown back.

So, on that note, let's accentuate the positive and recap some of today's awesome that you'll likely see in the full recap on Tuesday.

First up, Mike Wallace's 28 yard TD grab...

And why not follow that with the only other ball he caught today...

...which just so happened to be a 47 yarder over who else but Ben's old nemesis, Rasheen Mathis.

And what about Mendenhall's 68 yard haul, which was a large chunk of his 146 yard day?

Or my personal favorite, Mendy giving Rasheen Mathis the business for six points...

iPhone auto-corrects Mendenhall to "Mending all," by the way.

Then, there was Manny Sanders with the 32 yard grab...

Would've been nice if he had gotten more than one of the four balls thrown his way, but of course, not all of those were on him.

And at least that one was awesome. 

Anyway, 4-2, keeping pace with the Bangles, and hopefully at least only staying a game behind the Ravens, pending what's happening in Baltimore right now.

Trip out west next week for a date with our old friends Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm's mustache.

Stay tuned for the real recap hopefully on Tuesday morning.

In the meantime, feel free to deposit all your initial thoughts in the comments.


Here we go.
