Game 12: 33-10 (W)  
Looking at the schedule before the season began, this was one of those games I never would've dreamed we'd win. Convincingly, at that.

Sure didn't seem like it'd be that way in the first half, though. Granted, I was only half-paying attention while going through the usual Frantic Pre-Trip Housecleaning routine, but the Steelers looked mediocre at best.

Then came the second half. Really, I should just start watching the game at the third quarter anymore, it'd save me some nails and nerves. Five turnovers, twenty-three unanswered points (thirty for the whole game). By the end, the intrepid Steelers fans- who had braved the Bahstin crowd and the craptastic weather to be there- had Gillette Stadium all to themselves.

In the second half, no dimension of the team looked bad. Offense, defense, and special teams spent all their time embarrassing the Pats.

This season, the Steelers have outscored their opponents in the third quarter 77-9. Another reason to just wait to watch until the second half. ;)

I would have loved to have seen the game but noooooo! I got the regional one instead. Kansas City at Oakland. Two piss arse shite teams that are going nowhere this season, instead of watching a team who could go all the way. Me mate Adrianna, who was born and raised in Oakland, was laughing for about the first five minutes until KC pulled ahead and never let go of their lead.

My text messages must be a riot to read. When I sent her the final score of the Steelers-Pissants game she agreed, we should have gotten that one instead.

LOL! Oh dear, I'm sorry you got stuck with the Regional Fail Bowl.

Did you hear about Plaxico's nightclub antics? As someone much funnier than I pointed out, it's the first time he's gotten around a safety all year. ;D So glad the Steelers dropped him, and I know more than a few Giants fans who hope they'll be dropping him soon. It's pretty obvious they don't need him.

The prevailing theory on Fark is that the Bungles would then pick up Plax to replace Ocho-Stinko. Some threw out the Cowboys as another team that recruits troublemakers, but the Cowboys don't really need a wideout. They'll hold out for Michael Vick's release date, to sign a decent backup QB.

Thanking you...it was fail bowl especially because I have to contend with the Oakland downhearted later tonight at work, while wearing my Steeler pride and grinning.

Oh yeah we heard about that and laughed! Served the stupid son of bitch right too, if you ask me. I am glad they got rid of his arse when he started with the 'me me me it's all about me' shite. A lot of the annalists are thinking that the Giants are gonna drop his arse the second legal action comes down on his head for the gun. New York is tough on that shite!

I can imagine the thinking going on there...the funny thing is, Plax is not as good as he thinks he is...or as some of the other stupid arses who run their mouths...

Charges have been filed, and Plax has pleaded "not guilty" to the charge of possessing the gun he shot himself with. I wish him the best of luck defending that case, and sincerely look forward to reading the transcripts of the court recording.

I gotta say, if I were a coach or a team owner, my attitude would be: "There's nobody so good they can't be replaced. You play well, you'll get rewarded, but we are not putting up with your shit."

Yeah I just saw that a while ago. A lot of the older franchises do see it as 'you're not so good that you can't be replaced' which is good. I also like how Goddell is cracking down on these morons who think they above everything.

Now having said that...watch the Cadaver over here spot an opportunity. Al Davis has a history of recruiting dumb arses and trouble makers...more as an image thing than actual talent. (yes, we refer to Al Davis as the Cadaver)

I think Davis would have to wrestle Plax from Mike Brown's cold, dead hands. Unless Jerry Jones decides his team has too clean an image... ;)
