I am not sure how to feel about the game tonight. My first thought is that I hope Ryan Shazier is okay. He suffered a lower back injury and could not move his legs.
This was the hardest hitting, most injury inflicted game I have ever watched. This is not unusual for these two teams who have racked up quite a few concussions playing each other.
I love seeing a physical football game with hard hits but the hit that Steeler’s WR JuJu Smith-Schuster put on Vontez Burfict was tough to watch as a Steeler fan. I will admit that my first reaction was to celebrate because I love JuJu and I despise Burfict. But as I grow as a person, I become more aware that these are human beings out there and the safety of ALL of the players should come first. It was immaturity at it’s finest and I hope he learns from his mistake.
Lastly, I am so proud of my Steelers for coming back from 0-17 to win the game. This is a special team. The Wizard of Boz strikes again for the game winning field goal. I hope all the players who were carried off the field today have a speedy recovery.
One last note, Andy Dalton is a true professional and who showed it during and after the game. Salute to you Andy.
