TEMA: Steelers’ tie with the Browns offered more proof

Steelers’ tie with the Browns offered more proof hace 2 semanas #80870

There were those five turnovers by Ben Roethlisberger that might not have led to any points for Cleveland (you read that right) Cheap Cameron Heyward Jersey , but certainly prevented Pittsburgh from scoring enough points not to tie. There was that untimely fumble by running back James Conner midway through the fourth quarter that proved to be the catalyst for Cleveland’s unlikely comeback. There were also 116 penalty yards that either helped to thwart one too many Pittsburgh drives or buoyed one too many Cleveland drives.But there’s one “opponent” who might deserve a little more blame than people think for Pittsburgh’s tie: the referee who didn’t see a football bounce off of a Browns’ player’s helmet, this despite having access to his very own instant-replay monitor.With the Steelers ahead, 21-7, with eight minutes and change left in a rainy regular-season opener, Jordan Berry punted 36 yards downfield — certainly not a great punt — but after taking one bounce, safety Sean Davis corralled the football at midfield, an occurrence that appeared to excite he and his teammates a little too much. Why? Because, after taking one bounce, the ball hit a Browns’ player on his helmet. Since this Browns’ player wasn’t engaged in a block, the Steelers were going to maintain possession for at least three more plays. Unfortunately, the officiating crew determined that the ball didn’t hit this Browns’ player’s helmet. Fear not, however, as head coach Mike Tomlin quickly threw the challenge flag. If the close-up replay was to be believed, there was no way the Steelers weren’t going to walk away with possession. But as the referee studied the many replays, the CBS broadcast crew of Greg Gumble, Trent Green and Bruce Arians (yes, that guy) kept insistingthat there wasn’t definitive proof. I mean Cheap Sean Davis Jersey , they were certain that the ball had hit the Browns’ player, but there just wasn’t enough proof to overturn the call.So, why was the television crew so certain? Because the replay had provided the proof that validated Tomlin’s challenge.Okay, but then why was the CBS crew not sure about there being enough proof? I don’t know — other than because the proof wasn’t “definitive.” That’s right, I said it. Even though our eyes had witnessed a football hitting a Browns’ player’s helmet, there was no camera angle offering definitive proof of this happening.What definitive proof does an official need other than the kind that shows something happening? Beats me. So, is this sour grapes from a Steelers’ supporter who can’t believe his team’s season has started out with a tie to an opponent that sadly considers it a victory? It takes a lot of nerve to blame the officials on a day when the future Hall of Fame quarterback played as if he had his own fantasy football team and had started the Browns’ defense. But I’m at least partially blaming the officials. Why? Because half of Pittsburgh’s six turnovers might never have occurred had the referee been able to see what everyone else did. Definitive proof? What does that even mean? It means the Steelers are 0-0-1.L.J. Fort is the Pittsburgh Steelers version of Rocky Balboa A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins. Growing up most individuals are taught this valuable life lesson. My dad wasn’t a fan of sports, playing or watching. He viewed sports as a waste of valuable time that could be spent working. Hard work was an honest, productive endeavor and a means to an end. It was a way to make a living and provide for your family. I have never met or witnessed a harder worker than my father when he was living and he was perfectly happy out in nature working the farm.
He was content and at peace with his life, envious of no man. How many people can make that statement about their life? My father lived it everyday, and all that mattered to him was his faith and his family. That is a priceless testimony and legacy to leave behind for your children. My father was always my hero, still is. The example I strive daily to be, but sadly fall short of.Thanks to each of you for indulging me for a moment. I recalled so many cherished memories of his guidance while outlining this article. One that immediately came to mind was “You don’t ever start a fight, but you better make sure you finish it.” This was consistent with the mentality he was determined to instill in me, “You finish what you started.” He may not have liked sports, but he didn’t try to stop me from participating Cheap Ben Roethlisberger Jersey , as long as my chores were done first. He seemed disinterested when it came to my success on the field or court, because he was more concerned with my faithfulness and commitment to my team, and the integrity I displayed in the process. I would want to talk about my stats, but my dad was more interested in the hustle plays. In his wisdom he understood what parts of a child’s game actually had value and merit in a man’s life.If my dad was still with us, he would have loved to hear the incredible story of perseverance and determination of Pittsburgh Steelers player L.J. Fort. He represents the very best of what the NFL has to offer and exemplifies the never-say-die attitude my dad would have loved. A modern day Rocky story, my favorite movie series all time.Anybody who has been reading my articles, or have noticed my posts on BTSC comment boards, knows I have been campaigning for Fort to receive more playing time. I was admittedly shocked when the Steelers signed Sean Spence off the couch after Ryan Shazier went down last season, but I trusted the Steelers brass knew the caliber of their players far better than I. Fort had proven to be a strong special teams performer by that point, but that was about it. I assumed Spence must have recovered the step he lost after his devastating knee injury, but the Steelers were mistaken. Fort would actually receive only a few opportunities to see the field last season, and they were uneventful to say the least.After an off season that witnessed the Steelers seemingly fail to address their issues at inside linebacker; the team only added free agent Jon Bostic and UDFA Matthew Thomas at the position, things were finally looking up for Fort to not only make the roster but actually receive meaningful playing time. Fort has most definitely made the most of that opportunity.There were whispers coming out of OTA’s and the early portion of camp that Fort looked like a new player. Then the preseason started and in my opinion Fort immediately resembled the most complete inside backer the Steelers have on the roster. I would watch the film and Fort would always stand out, in a good way. He flowed to the ball, shedding blockers on his way, and arrived at the ball carrier with an impact. His quickness really stood out on a defense that desperately needed it. But it was in coverage where he definitely stands out from the rest of the linebackers on the roster. Thomas also has that same type of athleticism, but he is still a raw prospect that is being brought along slowly.Fort has endured the roller coaster ride that the NFL experience has to offer. He has been signed and released multiple times. He knows what it feels like to be labeled a camp body. He tried his hand first as a outside linebacker David DeCastro Jersey , then as a fullback, before finally settling in as a inside linebacker. There has been an impressive list of franchises that have kicked the tires so to speak on Fort since he came into the league as a undrafted free agent with the Browns back in 2012, further evidence of his talents and athletic ability. Many times his path to an NFL roster was blocked by the proven talents already on the rosters ahead of him at the time. This year it seems the light may have finally came on for L.J. Fort. Sometimes a man just needs an chance, other times he just needs the maturity level required to actually seize the opportunity. A former player better known as Deebo followed a similar path to success.Fort didn’t get the start on Sunday against the Falcons, but he made his presence known not long after seeing the field. He was all over the field once inserted, flying to the ball with violent intentions. He picked up a sack on a well timed delayed blitz up the middle, displayed his excellent coverage skills whenever the ball was in the air; once making a picture perfect tackle on one of Atlanta’s speedy running backs that resulted in a fourth down punting situation, and fittingly recovered a fumble in the endzone for a touchdown to close out his evening.Hopefully his outstanding performance has opened the eyes of the defensive coaching staff, especially Keith Butler, to the point he will continue to receive meaningful minutes even after Vince Williams returns. I hate to say it, but I believe the combination of Jon Bostic and L.J. Fort gives the Steelers defense the best chance for sustained success this season. Williams could still receive valuable minutes backing up Bostic and Thomas could continue his learning process behind Fort. I believe Thomas has NFL starter potential if properly focused and motivated. This rotation would allow Dirty Red to focus his efforts toward his valuable position of special teams standout.The size of Vince Williams contract extension shouldn’t matter when doling out playing time, nor should the fact that Fort up to this point has been an NFL journeyman. All that matters is who gives the team the best chance to stop the opposition and win the game.One thing we have learned about Mr. Fort is that when the going gets tough, it isn’t in his nature to quit. My dad would have liked that. Clearance NFL Jerseys
