It was an ugly game.

Ben Roethlisberger got sacked eight times. He definitely had a rough day and as result, he couldn't get much done. I think he is a stellar quarterback, but when his offensive line doesn't give him any time to get shit done, well, shit doesn't get done. It was totally depressing to watch. Our defense was on, they saved us from getting crushed by the Eagles because they kept the Eagles from scoring, but with our offense unable to score, hell, to even make a first down, it was all for naught.

Granted it is early in the season and a record of 2-1 is not a terrible thing. But with teams like the Cowboys, Packers, Redskins, and Giants on our schedule, we can't be playing like we did yesterday. Next up, the Ravens, a game that we need to win now that they are 1st in our division. I'm sure they got a few ideas from the Eagles.

On the bright side, the Patriots lost yesterday. To the Dolphins! Awesome. (And thanks Joey Porter.) The Colts also lost and are not looking up to speed this season. So it seems that after years of the AFC being the stronger conference, this season it's the NFC with the Cowboys on top. It's going to be interesting to see how it all plays out.
