Woot! Yes...I can't believe it's finally one day until the game. It's seemed like SOOOOO long.

Man, this is going to be so bad of an ass kicking for us, it's funny how Tomlin is going to start so big.

Game One Matchup: Steelers vs. Browns
Gerry Dulac breaks down the oldest rivalry in the AFC
Sunday, September 09, 2007
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Game plan

What the Steelers will do: They rushed for a season-high 303 yards in the previous meeting, a game in which Willie Parker set a club-record 223 yards. But that game was on a cold and blustery December night at Heinz Field when the Browns seemed disinterested. Expect new coordinator Bruce Arians to experiment with some spread formations and three-tight end sets against their 3-4 defense, which is aging along the line. If S Sean Jones is in the box, Ben Roethlisberger will try to throw in the middle of the field to TE Heath Miller.

What the Browns will do: RB Jamal Lewis was acquired from the Ravens in the offseason in an attempt to give them a workhorse. Lewis, 28, is 11 pounds lighter than last season and looked quick and decisive in the preseason. They have also bolstered their offensive line by signing LG Eric Steinbach and No. 1 draft choice Joe Thomas, but are unsettled at right tackle because Ryan Tucker is serving a four-game suspension. They have fast, young linebackers, especially OLB Kamerion Wimbley, and their secondary is better with the addition of rookie CB Eric Wright and the development of S Sean Jones.

Keep an eye on ...

Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs ... A former college quarterback who could develop into a dual threat this season. Cribbs was such an outstanding kick returner -- he had a 92-yard scoring return against the Steelers last season -- the Browns decided to use him as a punt returner, too. The result: He had a 70-yard punt return for a TD vs. the Bears in the final preseason game. He could also be used as a running/passing threat this season, similar to the way the Steelers used Antwaan Randle El.

Data

Game: Steelers at Cleveland Browns.

When: 1 p.m.

Where: Cleveland Browns Stadium.

TV: KDKA.

Radio: WDVE-FM (102.5), WBGG-AM (970)

Intangibles

This is the debut for Mike Tomlin, and he is up against this historical footnote: No Steelers coach since 1954 (Buddy Parker, Mike Nixon, Bill Austin, Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher) has won his first game against the Browns. However, the past two who were hired at age 34 -- Noll and Cowher -- won their regular-season debut.

Keys to victory

To win, the Browns must ...

1. Get men around Ben. Roethlisberger has been given more control of the offense, and the Browns need to disguise defensive looks.

2. Give the ball to Jamal. The Browns will look for Lewis to set the tempo and teach them how to beat the Steelers.

3. Don't get the Willies. Parker has been a fast starter, rushing for 115 and 161 yards in his past two season openers.

To win, the Steelers must ...

1. Fry Charlie. QB Charlie Frye won the starting job almost by default after he led the Browns to just one TD on 11 possessions in the preseason.

2. Slow Winslow. The Browns will try to split him wide in two tight-end sets to get him matched down the field against a linebacker.

3. Make Wright guess wrong. The Browns' rookie corner must be careful not to gamble against Santonio Holmes, who will go deep.

Head to Head: Steelers S Troy Polamalu vs. Browns TE Kellen Winslow Jr.
A closer look at the game within the game
Sunday, September 09, 2007
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Troy Polamalu plays in a division that includes Todd Heap of the Baltimore Ravens and last year played against Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez and San Diego's Antonio Gates. But the Steelers' Pro Bowl safety considers Kellen Winslow Jr. to be the most-gifted and athletic tight end in the National Football League.

Stopping Winslow, the sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft, will be among the Steelers' chief concerns when they play the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. today. And some of that responsibility will fall on Polamalu, whom Winslow considers the focal point of the Steelers' defense.

"He's probably the most athletic tight end in the game, actually by far," Polamalu said.

"He's so fast and his size ... he's just as big as the other tight ends, but he's so much faster than everybody else. And he has great hands. He really would be an excellent wide receiver if he was strictly a wide receiver. He's that athletic."

In the rubble of a 4-12 season, Winslow was one of the few bright spots for the Browns in 2006. In his first full season as a starter, he caught 89 passes -- the most by an NFL tight end and tying a club record set by Ozzie Newsome -- for 875 yards and three touchdowns. But he was a non-factor against the Steelers, catching eight passes for only 55 yards in two meetings last season.

His biggest contribution turned out to be a stiff arm that flattened former outside linebacker Joey Porter and a late hit on inside linebacker James Farrior that led to Porter calling him a derogatory name, resulting in a $10,000 fine by the NFL.

"Even though people have open shot on him, they never do get a good shot," said Polamalu, who did not play in the second game against the Browns because of injury. "He's not only strong, he's rubbery as well.

"When you get free hits on guys, usually you can knock them right down. Several times, he's had his back turned and spread out and people hit him hard and he stays up. A lot of times, he delivers the hit as well."

The Browns have a new offensive coordinator, Rob Chudzinski, who was the tight ends coach in San Diego the past two seasons. Winslow is hoping his addition will mean even more involvement and big plays in the Browns' offense.

Chudzinski likes to use a lot of pre-snap motion that will involve Winslow shifting wide when the Browns use two tight ends. They will do that in an attempt to match Winslow against a linebacker and utilize his speed to get behind the coverage.

Sometimes, though, he will face Polamalu.

"I think Polamalu is what makes their team go," Winslow said.

"When you are playing a guy like Polamalu, you know you have to be ready for him."

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger vs. Browns DBs
By Mike Prisuta
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Sunday, September 9, 2007

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger vs. Browns DBs

STEELERS QB BEN ROETHLISBERGER: Entering his fourth season, Roethlisberger is being given the keys to the kingdom by first-year offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who will count upon Roethlisberger to be much more of a difference-maker than a game manager this season.

Roethlisberger will be making changes in the blocking assignments at the line this season, a task that used to be handled by retired center Jeff Hartings. Roethlisberger has also been involved in game-planning for the first time and is being encouraged to call audibles. It's clear that Arians wants this to be Roethlisberger's offense, and he wants to attack with a franchise quarterback taking advantage of what the Steelers consider to be an array of downfield weapons.

They'll be counting on the Roethlisberger who led a charge to the Super Bowl in 2005, not the one that threw 23 interceptions in 2006.

BROWNS DBs: Second-round pick Eric Wright is starting at left cornerback, opposite fifth-year pro Leigh Bodden. The safeties are fourth-year pro Sean Jones and third-year man Brodney Pool. The Browns have ability in the secondary but lack experience.
The three holdovers combined for eight interceptions a year ago, when Cleveland ranked No. 15 against the pass. More consistency will be required this time around, particularly against teams such as the Steelers, who have announced their intention to go to a no-huddle offense more often.

THE MATCHUP: The Browns had Roethlisberger right where they wanted him last Nov. 19 in Cleveland. His totals through three quarters included seven completions in 15 attempts for 48 yards and three interceptions, one of which had been returned for a touchdown, and the Browns led, 10-3. But in the fourth quarter, the Steelers went no-huddle, and Roethlisberger went 18 for 29 for 224 yards and two scores as the Steelers escaped, 24-20. The Browns can ill-afford a similar meltdown if they hope to snap their seven-game losing streak against the Steelers. EDGE: ROETHLISBERGER

Browns punter Zastudil to miss season opener
By The Associated Press
Sunday, September 9, 2007

CLEVELAND - Cleveland Browns punter Dave Zastudil will not play in the team's season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday because of a back injury.

Zastudil's back injury limited his participation in practice in the week leading up to the team's regular season debut. He had been listed as questionable by the team Friday.

Zastudil, in his second year with the Browns, enjoyed a strong campaign last season, averaging a career-high 44 yards per kick. He played in all 16 games for Cleveland last season.

The Browns signed punter Paul Ernster on Saturday. Ernster appeared in all 16 games last season for the Denver Broncos, averaging 36.6 yards per kick. He also ranked third in the league with 19 touchbacks on kickoffs.

Ernster was waived by the Broncos on Aug. 29.

The Browns also waived defensive back Jereme Perry on Saturday.

Some of those match ups look VERY interesting. I wonder how they will go.

09-09-2007, 09:40 AM
Honestly, I don't expect us to have to play much more than vanilla with chocolate sauce for the first four of our games. Why show our playbook to the Ravens and the Bengals if we don't have to. Both of those teams are going to have to expose the their playbooks on early on.......we'll be studying it for sure. But with our schedule.......there's no reason to show them what we've got if we don't have to. Expect alot of poo poo from the talking heads......there's been so much talk about "Air Ben", the "new " offense and the playbook, yada yada. and they are going to be calling it all a bust. I don't expect to see Ben version 2.0 fully activated until at least the Seahawks game. Tomlin's no dummy..........let them think we've got just enough in the tank to beat the crummy teams and then it's all going to bust loose. They won't know what hit them.

But I'm just a dumb chick............what do I know? :hunch:

Steelers to start Davis at fullback vs. Browns

CLEVELAND - Carey Davis is slated to start at fullback but Dan Kreider also figures to play in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

Both players are on the Steelers' 47-man active roster for today's season opener at Cleveland.

Newly acquired Allen Rossum will return kickoffs and punts for the Steelers as second-year man Willie Reid is inactive.

Also inactive for the Steelers are cornerback Ricardo Colclough, running back Gary Russell, linebacker Marquis Cooper, center/guard Darnell Stapleton, offensive tackle Trai Essex, linebacker Arnold Harrison and quarterback Brian St. Pierre.

I would have liked to have willie reid in the 47 active roster, without him we only have 4 receivers!!
At least coclough is out so Gay may play (great rhyme huh)

Timmons and Woodley seem to have gotten the nod over Arnold harrison, I really hope we see something of them at least in special teams

WDVE FM out of Pittsburgh is the radio station that I am listening to as we speak for the Steelers tailgate show and they will follow that up with the Steelers vs Browns play by play. Its a good station and I love to listen to Tunch Ilkin and co. speak about the Steelers games.
I think that the Steelers need to run the ball today to be successful and keep the Browns offense and TE's off the field. Winslow Jr will have a big game today if the Steelers arent careful. TE's have hurt our defense for seems like years and if they are spotlighting on Jr then the WR's are gonna be open, so what happens? Steelers must stop Lewis running the ball and keep the ball out of Jr's hands..
