How does Mike Wallace just disappear from the game plan as he did in the second quarter?
I know the Steelers turned the ball over three times in the quarter, but it wasn't like they did so without running some plays.
And yet, the team's best playmaker had four balls thrown his way in the first quarter, resulting in three catches for 129 yards and a score – and then nothing.
If I'm throwing a bubble screen or something of that sort, it's going to Wallace - sorry Hines Ward.
© Those pick plays the Colts run are pretty much unstoppable if the officials aren't going to call the picks - and they didn't.
The Steelers did do a great job for the most part, however, of limiting the damage on them - at least until the Colts' final drive, when they seemingly couldn't get anyone on the ground.
© Ike Taylor wasn't credited with a tackle in this game – and that has to be a misprint - but his impact was this: Reggie Wayne 13 targets, three catches, 24 yards.
Will Gay, who got the start on the other side, was also solid once again. I know he's a favorite whipping boy on the message boards, but Gay and Keenan Lewis have played well enough that the Steelers aren't in a hurry to push Bryant McFadden back into the lineup.
© I feel badly for Jonathan Scott.
I know, I know, he had a tough game. But do you blame Scott for that, or do you blame the people who felt he was capable of blocking Dwight Freeney?
© It sure would help matters in a game like that if Ben Roethlisberger didn't hold the ball so long - but that's beating a dead horse.
© The Steelers running game produced 10 yards on 10 carries in the first half. Then, they finally decided to start running straight at the Colts rather than sideways.
That resulted in 57 yards on the ground in the second half.
© Scott, by the way, looks like he'll be out for the next couple of weeks.
He was in a walking boot after the game.
