|A knee jerk reaction is defined by Webster's http://www.nemiza.com/lp-ladouceur-jersey-c-1_65.html as an immediate unthinking emotional reaction. I have those often. I know you in Steeler Nation are prone to them too. While watching a possible pivotal game of the 2017 season, I recorded my initial thoughts with no time to reconsider them.
The Steelers win over the Bengals was dominant, but I still had doubts during the game. I recorded my initial thoughts and share them with Steeler Nation. Take these in. As always, I welcome you to weigh in.
Vontaze Burfict started his usual chicanery on the second play of the game by trying to kick Rosie Nix in the face. Nix was smart to not retaliate.
I actually felt that Nix was the MVP of the game for not only paving the way for Lev Bell, but ultimately for neutralizing Burfict and being the team bodyguard.
If the season ended today, T.J. Watt is the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
CBS runs a lot of promos for Survivor. Andy Dalton looks just like Patrick Bolton from this season. Spoiler alert, they were both voted off the island.
I loved Artie Burns jumping the route and going for an early pick. It could have been disastrous, but it was a the move of a playmaker.
Hilton wears No. 31 well. Donnie Shell wore it well too.
Marvin Lewis' facial expressions makes me think he needs to secure a sponsorship with Dulcolax.
I'm liking Vance McDonald, but he's got to catch that ball in the end zone.
The fake punt was brilliant and stupid all at the same time. But it worked...so it's brilliant.
JuJu Smith-Schuster is becoming a valuable weapon for the Steelers. The hide-and-seek celebration was really ridiculous though.
Mike Tomlin's lack of clock management deserved the lip of Big Ben at the end of the half.
It’s weird to see the first penalty come at the four minute mark of the second quarter between the Bengals and Steelers.
Joe Mixon will emerge as one of the better backs in the league.
That was the ultimate stiff arm by Le'Veon Bell on Dre' Kirkpatrick.
Joe Haden is the X-factor for the 2017 Steelers secondary. Cleveland gave Steeltown a great gift.
This was Ben Roethlisberger's finest game of the season.
Overall...that was domination. A true statement win.
The Bengals looked demoralized and http://www.dantecubed.com/rico-gathers-jersey-c-2_18.html exhausted, but December 4 in Queen City will not be a cakewalk.
As I replay the game more and more in my head, my perceptions will alter. But for now, you just got a glimpse of the first thoughts that popped in my mind.
