    I was just about to post that. It just an awkward step as he beat a block. That is two killer injuries for that defense. More importantly, I hate that for Dupree. He was playing on the franchise tag and was well on his way to earning a huge contract.

    The pass is the only thing that can really be special on that defense. It was also the reason I thought they might have a shot to beat the Chiefs in the playoffs if the teams met. Without Dupree, that defense is average at best. That is just a brutal end to a fucked up "week" for the Steelers.

    To quote the late Casey Kasem, you are ponderous, man. Fucking ponderous.

    Your opinion is duly noted and given the lack of consideration it deserves.

    Yeah, that was a largely noncompetitive five-point game. But very typical NFL. Think about it, in a four-day span two completely COVID-shattered teams played and lost -- but Vegas didn't lose both.

    I will say that after watching the game, I was absolutely wrong in dismissing the complaint by the Ravens' players about having to play without practicing. The Ravens had quite a few non-contact injuries today. The Steelers had a very odd lead-up to the game in terms of preparation and had a major non-contact injury.

    To be clear, I do realize it is a big stretch to include the Dupree injury in that. I'm not sure it is a stretch at all to say the way this situation was handled might have led to some of Baltimore's injuries today.

    So, did the ball get to the first down marker?
    I don’t know. It’s close as fuck.
    Which of these sons of bitches kept us in Pittsburgh all week?
    The defense.
    First Down.

    Collinsworth quipping that he feels like he just bought a condo in Pittsburgh was better than the game.

    Just saw this great line from Jay Busbee of Yahoo Sports:

    "Proving yet again that they are the best team in the NFL as long as no one's watching, the Falcons decimated the Raiders..."
