Playing "catch-up" at Heinz Field isn't such a good idea after all...
 

On a hallowed eve in Pittsburgh, the Steelers extended their winning streak to five, and the Patriots folded on twenty-one. It's been a spectacular thirteen-month run for New England, but as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end." Looking back on the streak, I see an inherent paradox in the Patriots' success. I see a team that was streaking but never streaky. Quite the contrary: New England has been a model of consistency, playing just well enough to win on a weekly basis...

Against all odds, rookie sensation Ben Roethlisberger left a sour taste in the mouths of the New England Patriots. Big Ben is for real, the big cheese in Pittsburgh, the meat of the Steeler offense. And with five straight victories to start his NFL career, this Roethlisberger is on a roll...

Roethlisberger's poise is as undeniable as his talent, but let's cool it on the Brady comparison. A 5-0 record is promising, but it's nowhere near conclusive. It barely even qualifies as "undefeated." Roethlisberger would have to go 41-13 and win two Super Bowls over his next 54 starts just to stand neck and neck with the shorter Brady. Then again, if anyone's going to make me eat my words, it may as well be a Roethlisberger...

Since the start of the 2002 season, Kansas City touchdown machine Priest Holmes has reached the end zone a whopping 65 times. That's 390 points in 37 games, an average of 10.5 points per start. Yeah, Priest is good for two touchdowns just about every week. So forget about stopping this holy man - you can't even contain him. Now if only the Chiefs could find some semblance of a defense...

During a recent edition of "NFL Live," ESPN analyst Mike Golic called Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander "a fantasy player's dream." This makes me wonder what dreams are like in fantasy land. It must be just like reality in the real world...

In the game of football, the primary task of offensive ends is to make receptions. So as far as I'm concerned, they should be called receptionists, not wide-receivers. By the same token, most real-life receptionists, with wide frames and an obligation to receive guests and incoming calls, would be more aptly dubbed wide receivers...

Hehe yeah Gibbs funny as hell..

I see that Ben Roethlisberger is going to keep the starters job even though Maddox is virtually back. I read Maddox is gooing to be the back-up..

The way this kid's playing, and the team is responding, Coach has to do this. They say you can't lose your startign job due to injury, but rules were made to be broken...
