And obviously game script can change any number of ways...but if that extra point is made by yous, then that garbage time TD would also have an XP, leading to a push...which would have made dodint an unlikely liar haha...

My action was dead when that 19 play drive by NY ended with their QB tossing a floater to Cam. Was just a matter of how close it was going to be from there.

Good luck the rest of the way tonight, boys...if you can keep the game to under 44 and still win, I'd appreciate it...
One of us will be happy tonight...
We almost pushed, announcer alluded to it. Heh.
Haha yeah, I checked in at the 2nd intermission and saw that TD and missed two pointer and chuckled at Fowler (?) mentioning it...in that same minute, Reilly Smith scored (0:15) and I had him scoring any time, him scoring and Vegas winning, and Vegas puckline (the goal put them 2-0 in the 3rd)...so 9:58 pm ET is potentially a very profitable minute for me today...
I blame offsides...

The blame should fall on the team for this, or whoever decided to just use one name. It seems like other teams gave players the choice of who to put on their helmets, while the Steelers decided everybody would have the same name. So somebody who wants to honor somebody else looks like they're going against the team and specifically against Antwon Rose. If each player had their choice, this wouldn't be a story.

That said, Villanueva has gone against the grain on this sort of thing a few times now so I wonder how the team feels. His choice of name, while honorable for sure, doesn't really go with the theme of racism/police brutality.

Big Al goes into business for himself too much, and he's not worth the media attention this has been getting. Twice now, he's done something different than the team, when the team has said the other thing.

Snell should be the starter going forward anyways.

Agreed. I will forever love and admire James Conner, but until Snell fumbles the ball away or gets injured he should receive the bulk of the carries. Conner is too injury prone and when he isn’t injured he looks like a power back trying to do a Barry Sanders impression to avoid contact and avoid getting injured. If he’s not injured he’s ineffective and this team needs to be able to run the ball.

If not for JuJu, that would've happened already.

Absolutely. JuJu looked good and engaged last night. Really hope that last season ends up being chalked up to shitty QBs.

Banner out and assumed to be out for the season, optimistic prognoses for Conner and Wisniewski, former 2016 4th round pick Jerald Hawkins signed off Houston’s practice squad.

The worst thing about Conner is that he somehow thought that taking Bell's truly special ability to hop around int the backfield would lead to success. His power running style that he was known for at Pitt is long-gone, and I don't think it's coming back.

A good running back is a dime a dozen... sorry, not sorry. Find a short, fast, strong dude and he'll be fine in that position.
