Apologies to everyone for getting this up so late, but this site has had some security issues to deal with which have taken priority. As we do after every Steelers win, we invite this corner of Steelers Nation to vote game ball winners for the win over the Browns.
Landry Jones earns top ballot position, for his 3 touchdown performance and his come from behind overtime victory effort. Next comes DeAngelo Williams, whose overall number might not offer a lot of sex appeal, but he ran stronger as the game wore on, and he scored the team’s first two touchdowns.
Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey all get ballot positions, as each man made critical plays.
Sean Davis leads balloting for the Steelers defense, as he lead the Steelers in tackles, had a sack and recovered a fumble. He’s followed by Mike Mitchell who recovered a fumble and was next in tackles for the Steelers. Bud Dupree, Daniel McCullers and Jarvis Jones all get nods on the ballot as each man recorded a sack, (a strip-sack in the case of Jarvis Jones.)
- Ryan Shazier has the last ballot slot for the defense, but he certainly is not the least deserving.
Shazier had an interception in the Red Zone, and made a spectacular play in overtime to force a field goal.
Write In Votes Not only Allowed, but Encouraged
Remember however, these Steelers game ball winner polls aren’t about who I think should get them, they’re about how you think should win them. So if you think that Jesse James or Demarcus Ayers deserves a game ball, write their names in. Ditto Roosevelt Nix.
Same goes for the defense. If you think that Lawrence Timmons, Artie Burns or even William Gay deserves to win a game ball, write their names in! Better yet, write their names in and leave a comment stating your case!
Thanks for voting and thanks for your patience. Please check back for our full analysis of the overtime win over the Browns.
