  1. So after tonight Brown just needs 491 yards in the final three games to get to 2000 yards. I don’t think it can happen, but that final game is against the Browns.
  2. I’m in PA too and you know what they say, “Philly in the east, Pittsburgh in the west, Alabama in the middle.”
  3. I’ve been very frustrated with the lack of serious updates concerning the Shazier injury. I’m not talking as a fan, but just as one person caring for the well being of another. The latest is that he had surgery last night to stabilize his spine, this after reports that he would not require surgery. On top of that, besides an initial report that he had some feeling, no updates on whether the man can walk. This is the one thing I’m pretty sure everyone wants to know. I don’t care if he ever plays again, I just want to hear he can walk. I understand if his family doesn’t want any info shared, but have the team say that. Ian Rapport just came out and said that now they are saying recovery will be in the months and that he won’t play again this year. Yet he left out the most crucial thing, can the guy feel anything? Part of me believes the NFL is hiding the fact that one of their players was paralyzed, and in a week or so they’ll admit it while also blaming the surgery for causing it.
  4. If anyone would like an update on Shazier’s condition here it is. He will continue to be monitored at UC for the next 24-48 hrs, after which he will go to UPMC for further observation. Early reports said that he had regained some feeling in his lower extremities and that he had a spinal contusion.
  5. I agree on Iloka’s hit. Had the Smith-Schuster hit not just occurred before I doubt it would have even warranted a suspension in today’s game.
  6. It is illegal to block a player with a blindsided block that includes hitting the blindsided player's head or neck with your head, shoulder, or forearm. It was made illegal the year after Hines Ward delivered a similar hit a Bengals player. ETA: CCLiT, we aren't on Twitter, so why does that matter? Yes there are terrible people in this world, but no one in this thread has said anything like that. Our actions should not be based off the lowest common denominator that inhibits Twitter.
  7. I hate Burfict and still believe we shouldn't celebrate illegal hits. Had Juju made the same block, but legally, I would be crowing with joy right now (as long as Burfict was healthy). No one deserves to be injured playing a game. I think most Steelers fans need to take a step back when it comes to Burfict. Our minds are too clouded with past wrongs committed by him and it effects our judgement of the situation. Also I don't like questioning about how real an injury is if the team doctors decide the best course of action is to cart the player off on a stretcher. I mean literally one of the reasons I hate Burfict is still to this day he claims AB was faking his injury in the playoff game in 2015. I'm not trying to compare Shazier and Burfict at all.
  8. Being a Yinzer is a bad thing. The people cheering on Burfict getting blindsided and possibly injured are the worst type of sports fans. They are basically the Vontaze Burfict of fandom. ETA: Yep they changed the rules almost a decade ago on that. Right after Hines Ward did the same thing and broke Keith River's jaw.
  9. Yeah I don't think you can take them completely out of the game either. Well I do see how but that would fundamentally change the game. I think sideline plays deserve some leeway as well. If a guy tackles you ten yards out of bounds, I'm fine with penalizing that. However if the hit occurs and the players are still in the white, the refs should swallow their whistles.
  10. This happened last night on Bell's touchdown. The Bengals player had a shot at Bell but eased up assuming he was stepping out of bounds, or at least it appeared like that to me
  11. Its gotten to the point for me that I don't want the Steelers and Bengals to ever play each other again. These two teams cannot contain themselves when they play, and it would be better for everyone if the NFL could somehow ban these two teams from ever meeting again. The hit on Burfict was terrible, and made even worse by the taunting. The NFL needs to get serious on this issue and suspend Smith-Schuster multiple games. That is the only way this will work. A fine or one game is just not working, they need to make these things mandatory multiple game suspensions. The hit on Brown moments later was also terrible. I cannot find enjoyment in this match up any longer. Now I just sit in front of my tv and hope no one gets seriously injured when these two teams play. ETA: Could we please not use weight as an insult?
  12. The Witcher 3 and Horizon: Zero Dawn, get the expansions for both. You won't need a new game for months. The Witcher 3 is my favorite game of all time. HZD is a close second, although that opinion might change when I finally beat it (about 2/3 through).
  13. I assume in your mind the rest of the world only thought they could walk all over the US from 2009-2016 right?
  14. Have you seen none of the photos of Weinstein with his victims?
  15. Sorry to go off topic but this made me remember something from my early days posting here. A lot of posters used to think I was a middle aged woman from Europe. To return to topic, I totally agree with the idea that most men are lost at understanding when a woman shows them any kindness it doesn't mean sexual attraction. I have had many friends, sometimes over the same person, come to me to talk about how much so and so likes them because they smile and laugh. It almost became an internal joke for me with one particular friend. If a female so much as talked with him, he knew they were meant to be.
