1. Nice job Steelers! The Bills are going to very motivated when they play us, not wanted to go 0-2.
2. Herbert is really good. That rookie year was no fluke.
3. I was also impressed with J. Hurts. I didn't get to see him play last year, but it looks the Eagles were smart to move on from Wentz to Hurts.
4. I never thought Houston would score 37 points with Tyrod Taylor as their QB.
5. Z. Wilson had a respectable game after a rocky start.

Go Dolphins!

Spot on re. Herbert.
Jets have an even worse o-line, kid QB looked good but will be running for his life.
Minkah. OMG. What a mistake that was and will haunt the Dolphins for a long time.
But the physicality of both Buff's and Pitt's front 7 was awesome and fun to watch.
Burrows looked good too, clutch completion in OT. Sets up the W for Cinci.
Overall fun games at 1pm, Minni/Cinci in OT, kid kicker for Minni made a 53 to tie, but the Cinci TO to freeze him was perfectly timed, have to do it again, and the kid did it again.
Tannehill looked like the Tannehill we know. W/out a running game he was the dink and dunk master that we loved.

Yeah, of those two trades (Tunsel and Minkah), the trade of Minkah isn't looking good. It never should have gotten to the point of him wanting to leave. Once he demanded a trade, at the time it didn't look too bad, because it looked the Steelers wouldn't be very good. As it was, it became the 18th pick, and we spent it on a talented prospect (Austin Jackson) who hasn't yet developed like we all hoped he would.

First ejection of 2021. Harrison T-bagged him and then punched a coach.

The way Minkah is playing, always aroiund the ball, hard hitter, he's worth more than a no. 1, more like the Jalen Ramsey deal. U watch.

I hated that we traded him. It's odd that a player who made a living out of moving around on defense at Alabama didn't want to do it at Miami.

Steelers D is much improved. They will be very hard to beat. Perhaps the Ravens will derail them? Thanks for that win over the Bills though…..a big statement win.
