? Alex Smith's progression as a QB (below)--or is that regression?--is extremely painful to watch.
?Nice drop with the game on the line, Roy Williams. No wonder the Lions stink.
?Lousy call by Chicago coach Lovie Smith to help the Steelers get their second touchdown. On third-and-three at the Pittsburgh 45, Ben Roethlisberger completed a two-yard pass, but Hines Ward was called for offensive pass interference. Instead of letting the play stand and making it fourth-and-one, Smith accepted the penalty. On third-and-13 Roethlisberger completed a 16-yard pass to prolong the drive. Dumb call, because this was a field-position game. The Steelers would never have gone for it on fourth-and-one in their own territory against the best defense in football.
