Re: 10-23-11 GAME THREAD --Steelers vs. Arizona

Really good game from top to bottom. The only problem I really had was The D going into prevent mode with 6-7 minutes left, even with a 3 possession lead. That would've been ok with a minute or less left, but not several, especially with The Cards having all 3 T.O.'s left plus the 2 minute warning. Loved how The O finished off the game by getting 2-3 first downs, and not giving The Cards the ball again. That's playing to win, not playing not to lose....

I'd say in the upper level, 75 percent of the fans were Stiller fans........ The lower level was more even, Stillers and Cards..........

I was kind of shocked Ariz. didn't try the onside kick when they scored w/ 4 min to go........ I was also surprised we did NOT go into Turtle Mode, and finished off the game without the Cards getting possession again.

Aside from the one big play against the D, it was maybe our best game. It was definitely Ben's best game. He wasn't half asleep like he was in several earlier games.

Great game. Great fans.



Glad you got to see a good game. Nice stadium out there in the desert?

It's a nice stadium, but but it's otherwise nothing special........ It's indoors, albeit real grass........ Based on pictures, in spite of a comprable capacity, I think Heinz is a lot more intimate. (I've never been to Heinz.) I think the sound system is kind of annoying........ The scoreboards were a little on the small side. There is no continuous out-of-town scores, they flash periodically. The food served at the concession stands is not exactly the greatest either.

The stadium is loud, but most of the noise seems confined to the lower level.

I haven't been to enough stadiums to say whether Univ. of Phx. Stadium is a top NFL stadium or a mall stadium devoid of character.

Had the weather been cooler outside, I think they might have opened the roof. Although the opening is too small to make it feel like a true outdoor stadium.

I've been to Chase Field........ A similar character-less stadium. I think Univ. of Phx. Stadium is a lot louder.
