Found December 26, 2012 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 16 is Russell Okung, who kept Aldon Smith, who had 19.5 sacks coming into Sunday night’s game, from registering any sacks or quarterback hurries on Russell Wilson. Since Aldon Smith pledged earlier this month that for each sack he’s going to donate $5,099 to Bay Area Boys & Girls Clubs, it’s clear that Okung just hates children. Whatever works for motivation, I suppose. Also receiving consideration: Calvin Johnson, Roddy White, Blair Walsh, Geno Atkins The Jeff George Memorial Least for Week 16 is Ben Roethlisberger, who had two critical interceptions in a season-killing loss to the Bengals in Pittsburgh. The first of which was a pick-six to give Cincinnati the lead early in the game. The latter was an intercepted overthrow in the final minute of a tie game that turned what might have been a winning Steelers drive into yet another chance for the Bengals to close the game out. After squandering a chance minutes earlier, Cincinnati finally ...

Third Down Ben Never Returned From Injury

Breaking Down The Doomed 3rd Down Play With Two Minutes Left Against The Bengals

One of the toughest plays to watch this past Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday, outside of the two interceptions thrown by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, was the 3rd down and 8 play with two minutes left in the game. If the Steelers convert on this play they are more than likely in field goal range for kicker Shaun Suisham with an...

Following up on the Sunday Spotlight

A couple days ago I wrote a spot addressing the five most important players to keep an eye on this Sunday: Peterson, Romo, Roethlisberger, the Giants d-line, and Russell Wilson.
