The word coming out of Pittsburgh is that the Steelers aren’t about to panic, but it should be noted this is what people usually say when they are panicking. In an epic battle between two 3-3 teams (funny story, did you know Seattle is also 3-3?), the Steelers look to rebound from what has been an inconsistent season so far. In this case, whatever Ben Roethlisberger has wanted, did, in actuality, not happen. Maybe the story would be different if their games were played in the bathroom stall? But the next best thing for them is they are on a three-game set at home, starting with the equally inconsistent J.J. Watts, who some people call the Texans. Watt leads the NFL with 20 hits on quarterbacks (please hit Ben a lot tonight), and has 40% of the team’s sacks. What would help is Ryan Fitzpatrick showing more of that Fitzmagic. Err, wait, that magic has actually led to a 58.9 passer rating, so maybe less magic here bro. But keep the beard. Trying to figure out if you’re a confederate general from the Civil War, or the lead singer of the Spin Doctors is the only thing that entertains me when you’re trying to drive the football. It’s Monday Night Football, so it’ll be interesting to see if my television can survive the Chris Berman onslaught combined with Steve Young’s hot takes. Trying to figure out what Wes Welker snuck into Jon Grudan’s water is also high on my priority list.

 

Drinking Game

Note: Wine night! I’ll be drinking a cabernet sauvignon via Yellow Tail. 

Take one sip of wine if…

Roethlisberger pump fakes the defense.

Fitzpatrick does something that makes you want to call him Fitzmagic (sarcasm counts).

The camera focuses on Brett Keisel’s beard.

You see one of those super fat Steeler fans swinging a terrible towel like it means something.

Antonio Brown runs for more yards sideways than forward.

The camera focuses on Troy Polamalu’s hair.

Gruden says something that is complete nonsense.

Finish your glass if…

Roethlisberger pump fakes the defense and then fumbles the ball because he pumped too much.

J.J. Watt swats a pass.

The Oilers are mentioned.

 

Totally Legitmate Game Prediction

Texans – 1 (sadly, the maximum amount of J.J. Watt we are allowed to have.)

Steelers– HARF HARF (Ben’s game prediction translated into English… sorta.)

      @Exactly: I think it could, but I wouldn’t take it if I were them. Not sure Randle does it. Worth a try.

    Montee Ball was just dropped in my 12-man PPR league.

    Must add? I could drop DeAngelo Williams for him.

    Also, take a flier on RG3?

      @Derrick: Yes on both if it’s for Williams.

    Deep league, +1 PPR

    I’ve got great depth at RB, but my WR other than Demaryius Thomas are pretty weak.

    Would you deal Chris Ivory for Desean Jackson? Ivory is my RB3or4, but I’m still able to play him at FLEX most weeks if I want.

      @Sam: Yes, that’s fine here.

    Hey Jay is Matt Ryan worth holding? I just don’t see his O line ever getting better and now they lost their center. I have Palmer and was looking at picking up Tannehill and then play match up rest of season. Your thoughts!

    Thanks for all your help, #1 in my league

      @Tom: I’d hold him, he’ll still get you the numbers. But if there’s a deal out there, I’m not afraid to trade him either.

    Also was this a good trade for me first my current roster QB Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson RB Eddie Lacy, Andre Ellington, Fred Jackson, Doug Martin WR Kelvin Benjamin, TY Hilton, Percy Harvin, Michael Crabtree, Malcolm Floyd, Roddy White. Good trade already accepted I sent Roddy White, Russell Wilson, Percy Harvin, and Doug Martin for Rashad Jennings, Pierre Thomas (injured), Brandin Cooks and Andre Holmes. Upgrading or downgrading thoughts… THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
