View Full Version : Jim Wexell: A Reckoning

It was Doc Holliday, in the movie Tombstone, who aptly described the Steelers’ feelings coming into tonight’s game against the Baltimore Ravens (http://bal.scout.com/).

“Make no mistake,” said Holliday, the noted gunslinger/sports analyst. “It’s not revenge they’re after. It’s a reckoning.”

A reckoning is defined as “the settlement of an account” or “the settlement of penalties for an action.”

* That would define what James Harrison (http://pit.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=5524912)’s after for being abused in the opener by newly acquired Ravens fatso tackle Bryant McKinnie (http://pit.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=5823291), who hasn’t played nearly as well since.

* That would define what Troy Polamalu (http://pit.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=5524966)’s after for being whipped by Ed Dickson and Ray Rice (http://pit.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=5471420) in coverage in the opener, and then taking a knee in the groin and a yank of the hair under the pile from Rice.
* That would define what Casey Hampton (http://pit.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=5524908)’s after for being chop-blocked at the knees with regularity in the opener, a tactic the Ravens haven’t used since......................

The Steelers are waiting. We welcome the Ravens to Heinz field, but we are going to kick their ass out of the stadium.

Here we go!!!

Is it bad I have a man crush on Wexell? He writes great articles, always provides great information, and he shoved Mark Madden in a hall way at the Steelers facility one time.

Talk's cheap. Go out and do it on the field.

All of that hype makes for a huge exclamation point after the game or a huge let down. I just hope the Steelers can play their game... and I hope the refs are mindful of the cheap tactics the Ravens are capable and willing to use.
