About the only thing I learned in high school chemistry, is that a negative times a negative equals a positive. A couple of negatives yesterday turned into a bunch of positives for the Steelers, who turned in a commanding performance for the second week in a row to take control of the division.
It seems to me the Steelers have forged a new identity, both offensively and defensively, than we anticipated before the season. This offense now runs through Le'Veon Bell, not the passing game. And to this point, the defense is the best we've seen in a long time! Today, Tunch Ilkin will join me at 12:15, and pro football writer Mark Kaboly, now of The Athletic, will offer his thoughts at 1 pm.
It appears as though the most difficult opponent on the Penguins schedule is the schedule maker. Another no-show performance in a back to back. Mike Lange will be on with me at 12:30, and we'll also get his thoughts on the acquisition of center Riley Sheahan.
