So we've made it to Week Ten, and we're getting to the part of the Monday Night schedule where teams they thought were going to be good are actually pretty bad. Blowouts happen and Tony K gets sillier. While the game might not be fun tonight (we hope it will be) the booth should be.
Terry Bradshaw is the guest tonight during the 3rd quarter and I'm hoping he asks about Joe Theismann just to see what happens.
"When he get around traffic, he lowers his shoulders and go through traffic -- and he go through it very well."- Emmitt Smith
Oh god....here we go again. Hines Ward is currently getting a mani and pedi, and Keyshawn admits that he did it as well. Everyone busts on him and laughs at their bad jokes. Hooray!
Great job of Emmitt and Steve trying to make their picks over the National Anthem. Good work ESPN. Game time....
Ooh the Steelers are wearing throwbacks in the rain.....this is going to be fun. Tony talks about Pittsburgh for a few minutes and I tune him out. Sorry Steeltown and ESPN, but no one else really cares.
"Ben Roethlisberger threw 14.....4 interceptions and was sacked a walloping 14 times."- Michele Tafoya
Wow....that'd be a record or something.
Steelers ball to start out....from their own 30. A run to Willie Parker and a pass to Hines Ward picks up a quick first down. Tony Kornheiser says Karma is the reason Pittsburgh is doing good this year. Do you think he believes his own crap anymore? Pittsburgh punts....and it's still raining.
Baltimore will get the ball from the 20 and 80 year old Steve McNair leads them out onto the field. For a rain soaked crowd....they're pretty loud. Sypniewski with a nice catch along the sidelines. Michele Tafoya talked to the Steelers' turf guy....good times.
FUMBLE!!!!!!!!!! Harrison cause the fumble and the Steelers are in business.
Two runs from Parker get nothing and the Steelers are looking at 3rd and long.
TOUCHDOWN PITTSBURGH!!!! Trevor Pryce misses ont the sack and Roethlisberger hits Heath Miller on a floater.
Ravens ball again and Mark Clayton grabs a ball. What's that his 2nd catch of the season? A false start penalty on the Ravens basically negates that play, and after a run it's 3rd and long....again. The Steelers blitz the entire team and McNair throws it into the ground. They should just bench him now and save him from any other injuries.
"Ben has an empty backfield, that means he has to pass"- Ron Jaworski (Via Matthew)
Steelers go three and out and after penalties on both teams Ed Reed goes back.....and he loses the ball! And it goes flying in the air!!!! Steelers get ball back after Harrison causes another fumble!
Ivy gets a stupid pass interference penalty called on him when Ben Roth was just trying to throw the ball away. Just dumb.
"It was one of those situations where a poor throw worked out well."- Ron Jaworski
"What the hell is clinical tackling Jaws? Sounds like a lame ass high school band."- Dr. C
My highschool band's name was The Bearded Clams....good times.
TOUCHDOWN STEELERS!!!! BIG BEN TO SANTONIO HOLMES. Great throw and catch....
Wow...coming back from break Tony didn't realize they were live and was either yelling at a production guy or at Jaws....
"NO! I got it."- Tony Kornheiser
RAVENS GET BURNED AGAIN!!! Big Ben to Washington and he was wiiiiiiiide open. No one within 15 yards.
Terry is also in the booth a little early, so that's a plus. Terry makes fun of Jaws' notes....its called being prepared Terry....you should try it.
"Tirico needs to spend more time doing play by play and less time sucking off TB. Furthermore, stop predicting penalties...that was obviously grounding."- Matthew
Seriously....Mike can't do two things at once.
The Ravens finally get some pressure and Roethlisberger goes down, and Terry is gone. This is the one time I'd rather the guest stay in the booth to counteract the crappy game.
This is just getting ridiculous. Another McNair fumble....off another Harrison forced fumble.....and McGahee runs it back to his own two. That's followed by a false start, and the Ravens punt. Can we call this game already?
Big Ben just chucks it up.....TOUCHDOWN SANTONIO HOLMES.....ACTUALLY NO.....
Incomplete pass....Holmes dropped it on the way down. Good call by Eddie Gunz and the Gang.
"If he was any more animated, he'd be Shrek"- Tony Kornheiser (Via Dave who said he laughed.....come on Dave. Don't encourage him.)
TOUCHDOWN STEELERS!!!! SANTONIO HOLMES RUNS PAST MARTIN AND THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY A CATCH.....Too easy.
"Look at his eyes, down field looking for a receiver" - Jaws (Via Mookie)
Ummm, that's kinda necessary.
Wow....Holmes just ran past Martin. That kid is fast. McNair hits Mason on two passes and it's 3rd and short for once. FIRST DOWN RAVENS!!!!! HOLY S**T!
JAMES HARRISON WITH THE INTERCEPTION!!!!! Good lord he's having the game of his life!!!
3 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 FF, 1 Interception
Great play by Roethlisberger to float one over the line to Parker, and Hines Ward absolutely blows up Bart Scott! Man he can block.
Touchdown Steelers.....Big Ben to Washington again.....
"Heres Baltimore's problem, in one half Ben Rothlesberger has thrown as many touchdowns as Baltimore has all year"- Jaws (Via konck)
I hate the Ravens, but that is depressing.
MCGAHEE GETS LOOSE!!!! TOUCHOWN RAVENS!!!!!!!
We've got ourselves a ball game now!!! Ravens get a sack and they've decided to show up. That "Big Ben Godsend" sign is the cheesiest thing I've ever seen by the way.
Oh wow! Hines Ward just jacked up Ed Reed.....holy crap. He just picks people off....that video will be up shortly. James Harrison picks up another sack after just using Jon Ogden....make that a half a sack split with Hagans. Just end the half already....good lord.
35-7 Pittsburgh. Thank god that's over....I'll see you in another thread if you want to hang out. I won't be mad if you don't though.
