If Bradfords knee issues are chronic no way should he get a big extension.

Good protection on the Rudolph 1st down but fair to say if the Steelers rush any more than 4, it's GG.

Didn't notice it - was he in the pocket? If he was out of the pocket then it's not a penalty.

He was between the tackles, dropped back quite a bit. Defender went for his knees.

Man, we got it at the 45 and did nothing with it. What a horrible time for a three and out.

Not exactly sure what defines the 'pocket', but once the qb starts back pedaling after his initial drop back I don't think they consider that the pocket anymore even if he is between the tackles.

Both the Oline and Dline are stinking up the place today.

If it wasn't for our penalties, the Steelers wouldn't have done crap.

Our D is doing its job for the most part.

Yes let's keep running it up the middle for losses. Good play calling.
