Key matchup

Troy Polamalu vs. Joe Flacco: Polamalu moves all over the field prior to the snap of the ball. It will be hard on the rookie to identify where Polamalu eventually winds up. Polamalu has three interceptions in three games this season and could add to that total tonight if the rookie fails to properly identify where Polamalu is going to drop into coverage at.

What an embarrassing performance by our 102M dollar man. Even a rookie qb straight out of 1AA knows how to dump the ball off or throw it away when needed.

I agree. 5/9, 43 yards. 1 INT, 1 Fumble at the half. This team is terrible.

BR looks completely dazed and confused. I'm not saying BR should lose his starting job, but for this game, the team might be better off with Leftwich. Tomlin doesn't have the guts to do that, though.

Let me add, that shot of Ben with helmet on right before the last play of the half... The last time I saw a quarterback look like he was ready to cry, it was Marino in the 48-14 loss to PSU.

Fair is fair, BR did a good job in the second half running the no huddle. If what he said is true, that he asked the coaches to let him do it, then I have to wonder about the OC.

BR made a great throw to Holmes and also a great play to find Moore on the final drive for the o/t FG.
