I wanted to hear what they were saying about the Steelers' win.
It turned out, the host wasn't all that impressed.
He kept saying there was something missing from this Steelers team.
Maybe he didn't watch the game. He could be going on accounts from stories or highlights.
There wasn't much missing Sunday from the Steelers' win.
In fact, it looked like their wins against the Chargers and Cowboys last season. Those were victories triggered by huge defensive plays.
Their win against the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game had one too, if I remember correctly.
The point is, the Steelers defense provided the signature moments throughout the 2008 season, except for that brilliant catch by Santonio Holmes in the Super Bowl.
But the defense is back.
The Minnesota Vikings have one heck of an offensive line, but the defense got pressure on Brett Favre and they shut down running back Adrian Peterson.
And the key moment for me was holding the Vikings to a field goal when they had first-and-goal at the 1-yard line.
That's Steelers football.
It was a beauty to watch.
