If nothing else, the 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers do not lack a flair for the dramatic.
They prevailed 38-28 tonight over the San Diego Chargers in a game they were once winning 28-0. But the Chargers clawed their way back into the game with smart offensive play and opportunistic special teams, and with a little over 5 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, had evened the game to 35-28.
But Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense showed their resiliency, Jeff Reed hung tough for a game-sealing field goal, and James Harrison came up big when he had to.
The victory brings the Steelers to 2-2, and one game behind the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North.

Polling Suspended (Again)
Bloggers polling plugin officially SUCKS. For weeks now I've watch as vote tallies on Steelers free agency, draft needs, and the draft itself go up... and then down.
Thanks to all of those who voted, but I'm taking the poll on Jarvis Jones down because there are 80% fewer votes now than yesterday afternoon....
