we weren't dominated so I disagree with you there Eliscruzz.

we gave up a 10 point lead because frankly, our D is soft at the worst times. One minute they look scary, the next, a basket full of kittens.

Their D brought it and we couldn't do anything with them

Thank you guys for the congratulations. I know how hard it can be to take a loss like that someimes. Putting aside the whining Nicks, Cruz and Tuck did prior to this game I have always really respected your team and honestly have always thought the Steelers and Giants had a lot in common. The AWFUL officiating in today`s contest wasn`t your team`s fault so I won`t gripe about it other than to say I`m shocked we were able to overcome it. Hope you guys are all doing well with the storm and all, best of luck the rest of the season. I hope we see you in the big one. Eli vs. Ben would be awesome.

Are you crazy! The Giants D did all they could to bail out our totally inept offense! Webster pick sets them up at the Steeler 33, they can't punch it in! D stops the fake FG play. O didn't give the D hardly any time to rest on the sidelines! 3 & out for most of the game, especially their last 3 posessions in the 4th qt. D just got worn out at the end by the Steelers run game.

Steelers D just totally dominated the G-men's O today. They also ended up winning the battle of the trenches in the end. Tough loss for us, but the Steelers were the much better team today.Giants better win vs Cincy next week or the 2nd half collapse curse just might be fact!

not crazy, to me this game boiled down to the 4th. They made more plays than we did, we couldn't and never converted a 3rd down. We hoped our D could pull off a takeaway and gamble on an 4th Q win in our favor.

The last 3 or 4 games we've looked very fallible and today I agree with you, the better Team won.

The offense played poorly but the idea that the defense bailed them out of anything is ludicrous. The defense did not play well. It's such a joke when people say the defense was worn out. Were they really worn out by the third drive of the game when they had played all of 12 plays and then watched the Steelers hold the ball for 5 and a half minutes as they manhandled the Giant defense? Get serious.

The offense stunk, special teams was horrendous and neither helped the defense at all today but the idea that the poor, poor defense was out there laying it all on the line only to be let down by the offense is insulting to any fan's intelligence.

The Steelers defense is ranked first in points and passing yards against, 2nd in total yards and 9th in rushing against. They owned the LOS on both sides of the ball. Your backup RB doesn't average 6 yards a carry against great defenses.

Our offense completely shat the bed, and as usual our defense could not stop the run to save their lives. We better shape up fast because our inability to score touchdowns, no running game combined with our terrible running defense will catch up to us mighty fast.

Gotta thank Mike Tomlin for the fake FG run on 4th and short on a chipshot FG try. lol The only thing the Giants could have done there was stopping a fake FG attempt. No decent team will ever send everyone to block a chipshot FG in that situation and risk giving up a TD.

Parademon
11-04-2012, 09:44 PM
I never said our D was great. But they had great pressure on Rapistburger for most of the game, 4 sacks, 4 pressures, 8 QB hits, had a pick by Webster that from 33yds out, the O once again couldn't turn into 7. As the game wore on in the latter half of the 3rd & all the 4th, you could tell that the inability of the Giants O to susatin any time consuming drives to give the D a rest, started to affect our pass rush late in the game & against their run game.

The D had 4 sacks, a pick, stopped a fake FG. Were they great today, no. but it was more the ineptitude of the O to score more points in the RZ, & going 3 & out almost all of the 4th qt, that cost us the game. We throw hardly any screen passes to the RBs, no slants, & if the Steeler D was taking away our WRs, do like Dallas does with Witten & throw more passes to Marty B! We never utilize the TE like NE, Atl, Dallas & NO do!

See previous response. At no point have I ever excused the offense or Eli for their play.

I haver enough blame in my heart for all three units. The defense played well enough for us to win today unfortunately the offense did not. But the idea that the defense played well or deserves more than simple kudos for a decent game is a joke. The offense has carried the defense plenty...I rarely see mouthbreathers on these boards claiming the defense should be splitting their checks with the offense.

Some perspective in analysis wouldn't hurt. That's all I'm saying.

I'm a Steelers fan; here's my perspective: I came into this game thinking that you guys have a fine squad, and nothing I saw yesterday has fundamentally changed that assessment. On offense, you have a terrific quarterback, a number of dangerous receivers, and an admirably courageous HB in Bradshaw. Your defense -- true to the Parcells legacy --- is built around an excellent front four. Your secondary, I think you'll agree, is less talented than your D-line, that's just football in the salary cap era: you have to prioritize certain positions over others, and I most teams would choose a great pass rush over a great secondary.

I think that the Steelers offensive play calling effectively exploited the relative weakness of the secondary while neutralizing your advantage on the offensive line. Todd Haley's new offense -- in contrast to the sandlot-style, deep pass-heavy offense we'd used for the last few years -- emphasizes short passing and pass protection. Your DLs weren't afforded much time to get to the qb, and your DBs didn't play terrifically well. You're linebackers were similarly unimpressive in defending the run, which forced the safeties to chip in, which opened up the passing game...

Look, the Steelers didn't "solve" the Giants. They outplayed you on this particular day, but if Eli had been a bit sharper, and if your LBs had eaten their wheaties before yesterday's game (I'm confident that Michael Boley, at least, is capable of playing better than that), the result might have been different. Nor was this a devastating loss. You still have a three-game lead over your nearest divisional rivals, and I don;t see overhyped, gimmicky teams like Dallas and Philly making a serious runs at you in the coming weeks. You have a good coach, and you generally play a fundamentally sound game. You'll be alright.

Anyway, here's hoping that you're all high, dry, and warm.

The officiating evened it self out honestly. Can't believe some people would use that excuse. The only call I didn't like was the hit on Cruz. Thought is was tacky. And maybe a block in the back on the fumble TD return.

I love the Steelers and their fanbase, but It would have been nice if you had maybe showed up here before the game as well.

I don't agree but there's no point in arguing. He made a great play with his left hand and interfered with his right. One man's great play is another's something else...

Judgment calls - and PI is pretty much always a judgment call - are just that.

OK, that's fair - I'll re-watch it. My memory is of the live play only. That said I wouldn't be shocked if we still disagree as we clearly have different points of view and agendas.

That's crap. The whole whining strategy thing is crap frankly and I don't believe you actually believe the refs were swayed by it.

That said, I really don't like when the Giants talk that kind of crap, it's bush and they should be above it. Every team holds, every team tries to take advantage...I don't agree with the *****ing to the press, I don't think it helps a team's cause at all and often works against them.

Granted the first PI call was as iffy as Brown's TD run (if that ball broke the plane, it broke it by the tip of the ball), but on the same play there could have been illegal contact on the WR on the route, well past 5 yards, just from memory.

Pittsburgh Steelers flat out won. There is no excuse about it. I don't particularly mind them and I think Mike (Omar Epps) Tomlin is a decent guy. However, the continual crying of the fanbase over the officiating after a win is ridiculous. The fumble call was not clear cut but iffy at best. The ball was hit when Rapistfatburger brought his arm back to pass and was still wobbly when he went to throw it. That call can go either way and in that instance I think it was the right one. The call against Ryan Clark on the hit on Victor Cruz in the endzone was ridiculous. That should not have been a flag. Granted, it was a cheap shot but it was not illegal. It was borderline late but was not a penalty.

Hey Pittsburgh Steeler fans, congratulations on the win. Now stop the *****ing and moaning about the calls and get ready for your next game. I understand that most of you are still elated because you just beat The Defending SuperBowl Champions in our house but please, stop crying about the calls. I say the same things to NY Giants fans that cry about the bad calls in the regular season game against Green Bay Packers last year. It is all part of the game.

Steelers are my second favorite team. Grew up around a lot of Italian steelers fans and when I moved south we met another family from Pittsburgh we became very close with. The older mom became like my grandmother and her son almost like an uncle. And my wife and I are God parents to all his sisters kids. Anyway he was a huge steelers fan and we always were at there house on Sundays for dinner so I always rooted for the steelers on Sundays as long as they were not playing anyone from the NFCE especially the giants. That's where I drew the line. But did cheer form them in their SBs. Have great respect for a lot of players on that team

If we beat GB Sunday night, I agree, but should we lose & get blown out in the process, believe you me, other teams & their fans will have us pegged as an easy W on their schedule.

Giants need to send a message to the rest of the NFL this Sunday night with a convincing win! That will put the fear into the Skins, Falcs, Ravens, Saints & Eagles that we are the defending champs , come & try to take it!
