View Full Version : How many yards for Fast Willie vs Baltimore?
12-21-2006, 12:07 PM
So one of the key areas for the Steelers on sunday will be offering a viable running threat to stop Ben being used for tackling practice like the last time out against the same opposition.
*In 7 games at home Fast Willie has amassed 924 yards at an average of 5.4 ypc.
*Baltimore ranks 2nd against the run in the NFL allowing only 79.4 ypg at 3.3ypc
*In their last meeting, at Baltimore this year, Willie managed only 22 yards on a paltry 10 carries.
How many yards will Willie burn the Ravens for this sunday?

I think Willie is gonna light 'em up this week. Our O-line seems to be playing better and they're gonna open up holes for Willie to run through.
I think we're gonna surprise them and take this game.

While I am hoping that the OL plays well and Willie rushes for over 100, I'm not underestimating the Rats' run D - they're pretty darned good. I put Willie in the 51-99 yard range. Hopefully the Steelers can continue to control the LOS as they've done so well in recent weeks, but at this point, I'm not looking so much at stats but more along the lines of QUALITY, not quantity from Willie, i.e. trips over that goal line! :tt02:

I say Willie carries 26 times for 80 yards and two hard fought short TD's. Steelers win 21-17.

At home, Line blocking better. Ben a big threat now playing like him old self. Defense playing like no tomorrow will cause more 3 and outs giving us more chances on Offense. I say Willie will go for 140+. This is when the Steelers play there best football and if they want to keep there playoff hopes alive you will see Willie breaking some big plays.

My mind/logic tells me just UNDER 100. It will be a hard fought game, which I hope we will win by maybe 7-10 points.
My heart tells me Wille will make it another 200 yard game!!
(Let's go with the heart!)

I dont think he'll crack the century mark against that run-D (I hate the bastards but I do respect that). Steelers 16, Purple Convicts 10

Our O-line was embarrassed last time against the crows, they'll make up for it Sunday. Willie gets 103 yds and busts off a 50+ TD run.
I can only dream. :smile:

I don't care what Willie gets as long as we win.
But if the Steelers are in control and REALLY want to win, then I'd say 80-100.

The Ravens defense has too much pride to let Willie run past the century mark. Chargers LT didn't even break 100 and he is the best in the game. However, he may do a little better this weekened then the game a few weeks ago in Baltimore. Willie should run 50-60 yards. Kelly Gregg is having an awesome year and fat boy Ngata is too large to get around.

:tt02: :banging: I voted 51 or over... he will be lucky to get this much against a very aggressive defense...:banging: :banging: :helmet: :wave:

As long as they grease him up like they did last week (it's the only way I can think of that he slips through so easily!!).......he'll burn'em up!
