Wake Up With GTOG: Ron Cook Wonders Why Kerry Collins Might Want $4 Million; Steelers Win 23-20

By Finesse

The Steelers defeated the Colts last night 23-20 on a last-second field goal by Shaun Suisham, narrowly avoiding an inexcusable loss to a team with approximately two good players.  Unfortunately for the Steelers, those two good players are on the Colts defensive line, which means that we're going to make parallels to Jurassic Park.

Freeney. Mathis. Big Ben.
Thankfully for the Steelers, the Colts two worst players are their quarterbacks and the tandem of Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter instilled no fear in anyone not a Colts fan.  Ron Cook takes umbridge umbrage with the fact that Collins is still in the NFL, asking himself regarding Collins signing with the Colts last month, "Did he really need the extra $4 million that badly?"  Um, Ron. It's $4 million.  Maybe he just wanted it.

Regardless of where you stand on Collins' pursuit of capitalism, this much is clear: we still don't know much about the Steelers.  They got blown out by a good team, they crushed a terrible team, and they escaped a bad team's home stadium.  The game at Houston next week should teach us a lot more about this team.  Hopefully we'll like what we learn.

Full reaction to Week 3 coming tomorrow.  Check out our Week 2 reaction here.

[Artistry is out of commission today so we probably won't get his full recap.  Via email, he offers the following unedited analysis: "For any Steelers post, 3 takeaways: we've been too easy on Jon Scott, the d let Curtis Painter go 80 yards in 2 mins late in the 4th q, and it's only one game, don't panic. Unless we have to go with that O-line configuration again. Then panic."]

  1. Don't even think about going to GTOG+

    As for Seth, I think he should put everything on the Plus. If EN gets so many clicks proportionate to the rest of the PG, they might as well. Half-measures are no good. I won't make an account over there (that's just how I roll) so I would miss out, but that is my choice.
