    Dammit, missed a FG, missed a 2pt conversion, and then let them walk down the field with 4 mins to go in the 4th. Balls. 

     

    Good game, PIT. Had our number twice this season. Vega was a beast. 

     

    Shit.

    Good game to you guys and great season!  I thought that missed XP was going to cost us.

    Good luck going forward and congrats. That 72 rated rookie FS is going to be special. We were sure that matchup was going to net Holmes more than 60 yards.

    He was their lowest rated player?  I chalk it up to the combo of Dane Wilson and the other rookie Julius Reese out deep.

    What a great game. Brian Brown deserves better. Steelers D ate their OLine up. They had the best pass block rating in the league this season, their performance today would be 13th. Their run block rating of 8.01 would be last place. Hard to blame Amral. Carlos Washington is insane. 

     

    Sad to see ILB Cameron Jonah 6-1 243 9 Hartnell College [Mike] [+2/C] 90 likely end his career on that note. Lowest grade of 1.28. I wonder what the lowest grade for a 90+  is. Been the defensive captain of the team since we could name captains in 2020. 5x Pro Bowler, 3x 1st team All-Pro. Was lined up at OLB this year. Vega too fast for him now.

    He is better than Reese in our opinion right now, Reese has kinda been a bit of a letdown unfortunately but we still have faith in him through the playoffs.

     

    Everyone onboard the Vega hype train!

     

    Gg Denver, I didn't expect to get you guys twice this year but they were both great games.

    I agree with most of this. I'd say our OLine actually held up pretty well, all told, and that OUR DLine did some wrecking, too. Just couldn't defend in the back half of the field, apparently. 

     

    And, yes, Jonah moving to OLB was an attempt to get our best players on the field, and he probably got too slow for that spot. He was great through the first 8 weeks of the season there, not sure he would hit the wall like he did. 

     

    Brian Brown did deserve better, for sure. Came down to special teams, missed 2-pt, and poor pass D.

    OL being bad is confusing considering how they'd played all year.  More shocked by the Steelers offensive output, but I guess Vega is going to that clutch in his player line. Great performance against a good DL. Would say front seven if Jonah didn't have dementia.

    Yeah, sucks to see Jonah go out like that. Inexplicably started to suck as the season went on despite being at OLB for the majority of it. All but 1 game, I think.
