…well the Yinzers are in mid season panic mode with calls of. Fire Tomlin,…Fire Roethlisberger… Fire Butler…sounds like Bevis and Butt head…Fire Fire Fire! Well, the Yinzers didn’t quite get what they wanted but there will be no more Big Ben for the rest of the season after an MRI indicated Ben needs surgery and will be out for the rest of the year. Ouch. Then the stat men were quick to note that only 12% of teams have made the playoffs after an O-2 start since 1990. Hey the Steelers made the playoffs after an 0-4 start, of course that was 30 years ago. It could have been worse after Big Ben went down with an elbow injury but Mason Rudolph stepped up big time. His flea flicker to Ju Ju went for 46 yards. Threw two red zone touchdown passes to Vance McDonald which gave the Post Gazette’s Gene Collier, in my humble opinion the tweet of the day when he came up with “Rudolph the Red Zone Reindeer.” Plus two of the Steelers touchdowns were the result of two takeaways by the Steelers defense while the Wizard of Boz may have regained his touch again because he is 3 for 3 on 3’s this season. Like former Steelers head Coach Bill Cowher would be quick to remind people. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. You want to fire someone? Fire Moncrieff! That became closer to reality after he dropped another one yesterday and before the ball hit the ground it gets intercepted. He didn’t see the field the rest of the day. Don’t let the door hit you where the sun don’t shine if you’re shown the door. Actually I hope it does.
