"It was just a bad day overall," explained Patriots corner Kyle Arrington. Ed Bouchette from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette gives the details from a Steelers perspective. Danny Woodhead played four snaps; Chad Ochocinco played 11. Here's Mike Reiss' play-time breakdown. I'm kinda surprised there's this much conversation about the Patriots attempting an onsides kick with 2:35 remaining and three timeouts. Did we all need that decision by Bill Belichick to serve as proof for what should have been blatantly obvious to everyone? The Patriots couldn't stop the Steelers at all, and if they didn't try to get the ball back there they weren't going to get it back by stopping Pittsburgh. Rob Ryan's insistence on running his cakehole left him in a position to have to self-flagellate after his Cowboys defense got hammered by the Eagles. The Lions pummelled the Broncos and mocked the process of "Tebowing."
It's a welcome sight to see the Bruins' trademark toughness and standing up for teammates on display in their preseason finale.
