Pittsburgh at Carolina

It’s a Battle of Attrition in Charlotte.
Didn’t everyone see Ike Taylor’s arm break on that tackle about 6 minutes into the 3rd period? Michaels and Collinsworth said “don’t look.” Too late, we already saw it. Gruesome, as Jonathan Stewart of Carolina leaves to the locker room.
Tonight’s game is a brutal one. Lots of guys getting hurt. I known, NFL players have been caught doing criminal acts. It’s still the hardest sport, the most physically demanding and the least financially rewarding.
Pittsburgh was facing 2nd and 22 deep in their own territory, when Le’veon Bell broke loose with an 81-yard run to the Carolina 10. Three plays later, Roethlisberger guns a ball to Antonio Brown, touchdown. It’s 23-6 Steelers at the end of three, and that may be enough.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
