I watched the game this Monday night and after the first two quarters, I was totally bored. I know the announcers were all stoked about the amazing amount of offense being generated, but I was more interested in one thing; the obvious lack of defense on display by both teams. Now, don’t get me wrong here, I like good games, but this game had WAY too many big plays to be considered a good game. When you have this many big plays, it just ends up looking sloppy.
I am usre I will be reading about how great of a game this was all week, but I for one believe it was a sign of weakness by both teams. Their passing defenses are clearly a deficiency and should be exploited by teams looking for ways to beat them.
As a former student of Marshall University, and and as someone who was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I was particularly interested to see that the Steelers signed Byron Leftwhich to a 1 year contract this morning.
