The phase was set. It was the 75th day of remembrance of the Steelers franchise and many an of the heroes from the recent were on appendage to ticker. On hand were Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swann, Jerome Bettis, Jack Lambert, Mean Joe Green, Jack Ham, John Stallworth, Rocky Blier & more than. Even Bill Cowher returned to Heinz Field to make official on a darkness when the insufferable Ravens came to municipality. The Steelers were 5-2 with the Ravens and Cleveland staying 1-step down in the part.
The Steelers got the globe early and it Willie Parker's archetypal run was for 1-yard. The Ravens defense has e'er been resilient in opposition the run and I figured it was going to be a attempt for Parker. Ben hit Ward for a nice 15 yard leave behind kick up your heels that resulted in a 1st downfield. The Ravens protrusive corners were at leisure due to injuries so the impermanent spectator sport was going to be the key. During the 1st progression it was descending so concrete that I mental object the spectator sport was someone vie in Florida. The Ravens defense held and the Steelers were 3 and out. I was genuinely hoping that the Steelers would set the highness by impulsive downfield on their opening phase and rating a score.
The Steelers irish monetary unit the globe distant and it sails into the endzone for a touchback. Steve McNair and the Ravens instigate from the 20 linear unit procession. The Ravens try and establish a moving unfit by moving W.McGahee and L.McClain on 1st and 2nd downs for a unqualified of 4 yards. The Ravens are able to get a 1st fallen with a overrun from Mcnair to Q.Sypniewski. The Ravens have a hot set of downs and on 1st downward Mcnair throws and incomplete endorse to D.Mason. On 2nd fuzz W.McGahee is stopped for a -3 loss by T.Polamalu.Post ads:

It's now 3rd and 13 and thing is about to develop that will set the lowness for the midday sleep of the lame. McNair takes the grab in the firearm and the the guy who replaced Joey Porter, James Harrison forces McNair to blooper the ball that is likewise recovered by James Harrison. I have to adjudge that I am big fan of Joey Porter and I was scared that losing him intended that the Steelers would suffer any of the filth and strength that we have come up to predict. Millions of contact sport fans were more or less to talker the forthcoming out group for James Harrison who would hale the Ravens conduct all period endless.
Points on turnovers are immense and the Steelers had to evaluation present. They had the game equipment on the Ravens 20 yard smudge and the downfall had subsided. Once once again the Ravens D was stalwart and the Steelers were move into a 3rd downbound state of affairs. My gather that the Steelers would have a go a fleeting elapse to choose up the 3 yards required for a 1st low. Ben took the touching under center and dropped posterior to slip away. The Ravens surpass unreserved was future and Ben threw the game equipment to Heath Miller in the endzone for a touchdown! Ben got hit after he threw the ratify and T.Suggs was titled for roughing the pedestrian. That's what I am talking going on for. Going for touchdowns and not piece of ground goals in the red zone! Steelers 7 Ravens 0.
The Ravens get the orb and the Steelers Defense forces them to 3 and out. The Steelers get the bubble wager on and I am to the full expecting them to march trailing the tract and rack up once again. The Steelers are controlled into a 3rd and 2 and Ben throws an some degree of passing to Nate Washington. I inspiration the Steelers should have understood profit of the wet paddock and run Davenport up the gut on 3rd set.Post ads:

The Steelers irish pound the orb and their are compensatory penalties which meant a another game of 4th thrown. Sepulveda punts the orb to the hazardous Ed Reed who fields the ball at the Ravens 32 linear unit string. Ed Reed starts his income tax return and runs into a mack motortruck in the gel of James Harrison. James Harrison necessarily grabs Reed in the air and body slams him onto the soil and in the method the orb pops out and is scooped up by the Steeler's Timmons who returns the blooper to the Ravens 28. ESPN replayed the thing triumph by Harrison several modern world on TV and it was a entity of visual aspect. At this point, James Harrison had 2 guarded fumbles,1 feel around recovery, 1 sack, and political unit autograph acknowledgement. Harrison was playing approaching a coop being that had been tasered and let relaxed on the Ravens!
James Harrsion set the Steelers up nicely beside his inhibited blunder and they had to valuation some points. 4 show business subsequently Ben had the Steelers in 1st and 10 at the Ravens 18 next to 2:30 near in the 1st fourth. Big Ben then hits Santonio Holmes for a 15 courtyard score go by to breed it 14-0 lame.
The existing day Steelers were putt on a pleasant confirm for the Monday Night Football addressees and making Bradshaw and the residuum of the earlier players crowing on this past nighttime. The 1st twenty-five percent ends with the Steelers leading 14-0.
The 2nd twenty-five percent proves to be as elating as the 1st with 3 Ben Roethlisberger score passes. The 1st was a 30 linear unit exceed play to Nate Washington, the 2nd was a 35 yarder to Santonio Holmes, & the 3rd was a 7 yard go by performance to Nate Washington. The Ravens were able to get on the sign with a 33 patio McGahee TD run. James Harrison continues his one man wrecking unit when he intercepts McNair on a endorse knowing for Williams.
The 1st partly finished beside the Steelers leading 35-7. Big Ben became simply the 3rd Steeler actress in NFL what went before to have thrown 5 score in a activity. The another players to have down 5 td passes in a singular lame were Terry Bradshaw and Mark Malone. Big Ben looked ostentatious during the primary half with exact passes and excellent scrambling distant from the outdo scurry. The moving halt was not location and Ben picked up the slapdash and carried the offence on his arm. The defence was musical performance as looked-for with the exception of for the Monster drama of James Harrison.
The 2nd fractional was not near as energetic as the 1st but the Steelers were up by 28 points and the Ravens could not get things started. The Steelers were able to pad their stats in the 3rd simple fraction next to a 22 courtyard pasture desire by Jeff Reed. The 3rd one-fourth also saw Big Ben get distressed on a 3rd and 7 dramatic composition when he coiled out and was hit after hitting Santonio Holmes for a 45 linear unit exceed dramatic play. Ben was low for a few report and he looked to be in many distress when he walked to the sideline. It was subsequent go-getting that he suffered a hip marker incapability when he hit the greensward rough. James Harrsion too cushiony his incredible stats by registering different bag on McNair. The Ravens could not put any points on the committee in the 3rd quarter.
Ben came rear in the 4th twenty-five percent but he did not see substantially action. Charlie Batch replaced Ben and he was intercepted by Ed Reed. You can't darned Batch because the second-rate guy has not seen any playing juncture in ages. The Raven after a while replace McNair with Boller who could not cut the globe either. The Steelers win big by a evaluation of 38-7!
James Harrison becomes the 1st actress since 1982 to have 2 guarded fumbles, 1 foul-up recovery, 1 interception, 3.5 sacks, and 10 tackles. James Harrison was a brute on this hours of darkness and lets expectation nowadays was sole a taste of what's to come. It was awesome seeing Bill Cowher and all the Steeler heroes from the sometime celebrating such as a marvellous success on this 75th day of our prized Pittsburgh Steelers.
