run the ball! the chargers got good pass protection, and the offencive line needs to step the hell up! :sign01:

The O-line definitely needs to step it up. Last week they didn't play well at all.

i think they will, i think they'll come out hittin hard, and opening big ass lanes for willie to rack up some yardage, and they'll give ben enough time to actually throw a few good passes. it's going to be a very good game and i hope our d is ready for L.T. and gates

This could be a very tough game for the Steelers.
The Chargers got the taste of being a "Giant Killer" and will want to do it again....just like when we knocked off New England and Philadelphia in consecutive weeks last season.

The pass defense better tighten up or Brees could have a field day.

This article from Steelers.com (http://media3.steelers.com/article/57517/) makes it sound like he very well could. I guess it depends on how practice goes and all.

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.

HW just attempted to cover his ass either way, didn't he?

this should be a pretty good game. i agree the o-line needs to play better. i also would like to see the offense start fast. a big play in the first series would be nice. other than that the defense needs to get off the field on 3rd down.

It's going to be another great game, but the Steelers dont want another loss right now. It'll be close but Bettis and Staley will back up parker for one hell of a win.

This is gonna be a tough game defensively. I'd love to see us shut down LT, but would be happy with containment. Our secondary has a challenge too. I think we're gonna be pysched and play the best game of the season so far.
Offensively, sure the oline has to step up, because I'm hoping for some good old fashion rushing and if not rushing, some quick routs and maybe some shots to Heath... Can't wait.

This is going to be a GREAT game and a test for both teams.

LETS GO STEELERS!!!

i'm nervous as hell for some reason with this game. i hope we are ready for a great running back and very very very good tight end.

You're nervous because we laid an egg againt the Pats. After the Pats and Philly last year, we all thought these big wins in the regular season came easy.

We'll come back hungry and win this in a close one.

Anyone know what the Steelers Monday night record is under Cowher? I remember the Woodson / Lloyd defenses always playing big on Mondays.

If my stats are correct Bill Cowher's record on Monday Night is:
(W)-16
(L)-6

We will be fine! We will capitalise on the loss w/ths pats, and come out swinging. We got all of our running backs healthy and the team is hungry for the next SB! :buttkick: lets get over the pats deal, it was a fluke thing and we will rebound!

I think we should be well fired up for this one, now that we've been knocked of that high horse.

We should be able to pick on Jammer and Davis all night.

You guys better be ready because we will be. Our offense is rolling will not slow down. Defensively, we are getting better. Look at the last 2 games in the 2nd half. We only allowed a total of 3 points to both the Giants and Pats.

The Steelers are a good team. But if they couldn't stop an undermanned Pats team, I don't see them slowing down our high powered offense.

Part of the reason IMO that the bolts by the margin that they did was what we took out of the pats a week earlier. Like I said numerous times before, I think injuries and such a emotional - high effort game drained the pats enough to where the bolts had a clear edge. I think we will be hungry for win and maybe the bolts will be over confident and/or a little tired from the big match up against the pats as well. But being it's a Monday nighter maybe the last comment won't be a factor.

Regardless of the ifs, we better not lose this game as it has a high importance factor. Seeing that we have three big matchups this year. We need to win 2 out of 3 IMO to be battle tested/ high confident for the playoffs. So the bolts and Indy bring the other two games, as we already lost to the pats.


Also if we beat the team that just beat the pats, it renders that loss somewhat meaningless. I think we beat ourselves in the patsiepuff game more than anything the pats did to us. But in this game we need to be more focused and execute. And win the turnover battle. Especially being in their house. LT is in top form so we need to shut him down, and make Brees beat us through the air. Not that this is impossible, but it will at least eliminate play action passing, if we can make them one dimentional.....

Coming off a bye we have no excuse for not being in top form, like was mentioned our O-line needs to play better. But I'll go one step further. If we win the O-line-D-line battles we should win this game.

It is going to be a good game, like the pats this game could go either way, let us hope we are up for the challenge.

Not taking anything away from the Bolts but they had a better chance of beating the Patriots than the Steelers. First the off the Steelers and the Patriots faced each other 3x's in less then a year, so the Steelers were heavily scouted by the patriots. To the point were that game almost seemed like a division game.

I think the best way to combat L.T. , Brees, and Gates is to blitz and make the Chargers keep those guys in for protections reasons.

"heavilly scouted" is an understatement. they employ half our roster! lol

plus carolina beat the pats and it didnt help them much the following week against the lowly dolphins.
pats beat us and it gave them no edge on the colts. steelers know since last year not to rest on what happened the week before and to never over look an opponent. giants, cowboys, browns, jags, etc almost beat us while we steamrolled the 2 superbowl teams. "any given sunday"

Ambridge

Not too mention the Pats came off two very physical games in a row.......Carolina and Pittsburgh.
Fair to say the Pats were probably a little wore down and decimated with injuries.

They were ripe for the picking.


Still a good win for the Chargers regardless, but I'd temper the enthusiasm with a little reality.

The Steelers will be ready for this game...they've had 2 full weeks of Cowher cussing them out and spitting all over them for how bad they sucked against the Pats. Personally, I'd hate to be a Charger come next Monday Night...

I'm really nervous about the Chargers/Steelers game, too. They bitch slapped (am I allowed to say that?) the Pats but good. I don't think the Pats are all that great this year, though. Everyone's on to them. They played very sloppy against us, but then we played that way, too, IMO...(lol). I have a friend in San Diego who is a Steelers fan and who is going to the game Monday night. He'll be in the corner end zone, mid-second level. Not the best of seats, but at least he's in the stadium. When I spoke w/him about the game today, he pretty much expressed SteelProven's sentiments of "the best way to combat L.T. , Brees, and Gates is to blitz and make the Chargers keep those guys in for protections reasons."

I'm nervous about this game, but I think we'll pull off the win! Yay!

VA_Steeler... Love your avatar. How 'bout being a dear and getting me a drink. I'm parched. A Long Island Iced Tea would be nice. :smile:

Easy now, don't get too cocky... You guys played a good game against the Pats, but I think you caught them on a bad day.

The Pats match up well against the Steelers, Tom Brady doesn't seemed to be phased by the pressure the Steelers put on him, and Ben, 2 out of the 3 times he's played NE, he's looked like a below average QB.

Yes those two TD's he threw including that comeback drive to tie the game up, sure made him look below average. < insert eye roll smiley here>

Ben wasn't the reason that we lost. It was more O-line play and CB coverage. Not surprising that these two areas were supposibly upgraded, but so far Ike and Simmons are still a work in progress..........

It will be a tough one but I say the Steelers come out on top only if they get the run established early and keep it going, like mentioned already the Chargers have a good pass D.
Also your D needs to contain LT and Antonio Gates.....If that don't happen it could be a long night.

10-05-2005, 06:24 PM
we have reallllly athletic LB's in the back field so we should be ok. i think the more they go to gates the more huge hits troy will have and i will pay for that show my friend

For some reason I think its gonna be a sloppy game for both teams. I think Gates is gonna be a huge factor if you can take him outta the game youll win. Itll probably end with someone winnin by a field goal or a touchdown

slashsteel
10-06-2005, 12:04 PM
like mentioned already the Chargers have a good pass D.

The bolts are 26th in the league in passing yards allowed. And 20th in scoring D. I don't see where you guys think that they have a good pass defense. This is their biggest weakness on their team IMO........
