The Niners showed three things on their MNF beat down against the Steelers: their defense is as stout as any in the league, Roethlisberger needS to get healthy soon for the playoffs, and Candlestick Park is way too old for an NFL team. The defense bottled up an injured Roethlisberger all night. Big Ben seemed out of sorts as he threw three picks in the game. The primetime game was delayed by two power outages, showing America that while Candlestick Park has a rich history of football, it needs to be replaced or renovated for a Niners team that's heading to the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Marquette had the best player with the best name on the court, but they did not have the better team on Monday night as the LSU Tigers bottled up the Golden Eagles and their standout guard, Vander Blue. As one of the few undefeated in the Big East, the slip up should take them down a few spots, but if they go into Big East play, they should be just fine.
