I live in Ohio and the band wagon jumpers are coming out of the wood work. I would never hear the end of it if this happened. I haven't talked one bit of trash (it always brings me bad luck) for the past 9 wins in a row but that won't make a difference. The defense really needs to get some things sorted out quick in my opinion otherwise it will be an early exit.

Just remind them that their last championship team was before the SB era.

first of all.....love the nickname!

every game is worrisome, but the brownies D has made almost no improvements at all this season( their shutout on sunday was against the bills and on a snowstorm even the browns almost couldn't score) and we have to hope our D gets their game together. if our D is fine game against them should be no problem, if not.....that game would become a shootout.

above all.....have hope!

I have to admit that I don't like the premise of having to beat a team 3 times in the same season.

But I'm really replying to say GREAT NAME! LOL!

Yes.

It's next to impossible to beat a good team three times in the same season.

I would rather try to beat a team we are better than 3 times than play a team which outplayed us. Jags are better than the Browns. We seem to score at will against teams with weak defenses. Jags have a solid d, and there o -line controlled as well. Browns one dimensional. We will beat them again unless Cribbs has a huge day and or Steelers turn the ball over. Knock on wood we have been very good at not turning the ball over this year. I think we are capable of beating any team right now except the Pats. Unfortunately we are also capable of losing to just about any team as well. We need huge adjustments in order to stop Brady, Moss , and Welker.

I think having Najeh in at RB instead of Parker makes Pittsburgh a better offense right now. That might help beat a team like Jacksonville that loves to run ball control offense with their two headed monster at RB. If Pittsburgh can get Gary Russell going as well, it would make for a very interesting game.

Judging that I'm not sure which team is going to show up week in and week out, yes I'm worried. IMO, this is an above average football team at best.

STs stink.

O-line stinks.

Defensive unit as a whole does not appear to be the #1 ranked in the league.

Backfield has taken a hit. Yeah, Najeh did well against the Rams........against the Rams.

IMO, I think it's safe to hit the panic button at this point in the season. It's not September 30 and we are coming off a loss to the Cardinals. It's not going to be easy, but you never know come playoff time.

And Najeh was the first 100 yard rusher against the Rams this season. Plus he's more of a power runner and the offensive line the Steelers have now was built for power runners, not scat backs like Parker.

Hope your right. Would still rather have Parker back there. IMO, I'm not sure if it really matters who we have back there come playoff time with that o-line.

i live in cleveland too and have seen about all of their games.. they keep calling it the "season of dreams" and all this other BS. i cant stand it.. they are the luckiest team in football and have been all season. they have had 9 out of their 14 games go down to the final possession. over their past 9 games, there has been only 2 games decided by more than a touchdown.. two 10-point victories over miami and houston. i know a win is a win and all, but damn.. they could easily be .500 right now if steven jackson didnt go down in the rams game and dawson didnt play pinball with the goal posts vs the ravens. but thats the nfl.

Yeah, well I know I'm in the minority when I say I don't like Parker as the starting running back. I'd rather him fill the same role he filled in '05 when he was the change of pace back behind Bettis. I think that's the best way to use speed backs like Parker, change of pace guys.

That's just me though.....oh and Jacksonville seems to think the same way too.

i guess im just a homer for factually pointing out that parker was NEVER a change of pace back to bettis. infact, it was the other way around.

04- UDFA rookie. spent most time inactive. got some action in the final game of the season when all starters of 15-1 team were being rested for playoffs.

05- with jerome and staley both hurt, willie was named the starter and hasnt looked back since. jerome served as "change of pace" back on his way to sb victory in detroit for his FINAL season. revisionist history sure is nice though. :wink02:

all this "willie was better as a change of pace back" is crap i would expect from people who became steelerfans after their superbowl victory.

im sure if the steelers had LT and michael turner, the same fans woulda been calling for LT to be a "change of bace" back after week 5 of this season.

I'd be lying if I said playing the Browns for the third time this season didn't cause me some concern. I think our O, even with Najeh in the backfield, can score a lot of points on the Browns D (they're awful) but I would be a bit concerned about Anderson, Edwards and Winslow - they've been on fire for most of the season and the way our D has been playing the past five weeks or so, I'd have a teensie bit of doubt. I also remember a recurring nightmare called Cribbs.

You beat me to it, Tony. I swear some Steelers fans have REALLY short memories if they can't remember that Willie was the STARTING RB in 2005. He was only used as a "change of pace" back in any capacity at the end of the 2004 season.

As for losing to the Browns in the playoffs, well for starters, we have to get there first. Secondly, yes, I would be concerned - it's only natural. But I still think we'd beat them, whether it's here or in Cleveland.

The ONLY game Bettis carried the load was the Chicago game, and even in that game Parker had more carries. Bettis had just 110 carries the entire season, and less than 1/6 of those were in that one game. Parker started, and carried the load, in nearly every other game including the final 5 games of the season.

Interesting post L-O-L-A. As far as beating someone three times (as mentioned in this thread), statistically the first two coin tosses have no effect on the third. But, sometimes the reaction to winning or losing the first two games can definitely affect the outcome of the final game based on how the teams react/respond to the results of the first two games.

I don't remember Parker running over Urlacher in the Bears game. But hey, I'm not the "homer" you are Tony.

Yeah, that play you're talking about was right near the goal line, in fact I think Bettis scored on that play. Of course Bettis was in, like aforementioned, you are simply wrong by saying that, and there's empirical evidence to back it up.

Sounds like you have some bias against Willie. I'm no Parker lover but dammit he has earned all of my respect now from this season. Parker is a small guy, frame wise he has got to be one of the smallest RB's in the league. Guys around his same height are 15, 20, and 30lbs bigger, which is a significant difference.

And you know what? Willie has fought like a champ. #1 in rushing yds and attmps? He really hasn't broken many big ones this season, not like LT and AP who trail him, which says he has earned some tough yardage, and been hit and swarmed at the line many times.

On that note, personal favorite Steeler moment of the year, actually involves an announcer which is odd because I hate 99.9% of announcers.

But JAX game, the play when Ben was being sacked and turned to the left and threw it to Parker while being driven to the ground, Dan Dierdorf says with his little lisp
"Ben Roethlisberger, you are a stud! YOU ARE A STUD!"

ahh I love it, and I can't even fathom the mental awareness of Ben on that play.

I'm not worried about it because the Steelers CAN'T play the Browns unless it's in the AFC Championship game. If that miracle happens to occur then I like the Steelers chances at Heinz Field versus the Browns.

The Steelers playoff position and 1st round opponent is LOCKED, unless the Chargers lose out versus the Broncos and the Raiders. I don't EVEN see that happening.

The Steelers get the Jaguars at home, if they win then they'll most-likely travel to Foxboro, unless of course the Browns/Titans upset the Chargers. I guess that is possible.

your wrong.. a loss by the chargers this week or next and a win by us vs the ravens and we get the #3 seed because we will have a better record.

I think the pressure may have gotten to him like it does a lot of young, inexperienced QBs when they are in a game of that magnitude - it happened to Ben in the 2004 AFCCG. There will be better days for DA - he has been solid most of the season and will be a good, consistent QB as he gains more experience.

I think having Najeh in at RB instead of Parker makes Pittsburgh a better offense right now. That might help beat a team like Jacksonville that loves to run ball control offense with their two headed monster at RB. If Pittsburgh can get Gary Russell going as well, it would make for a very interesting game.


i get the feeling it doesn't matter who our RBs are if our special teams and defense doesnt shore up... we only won against cleveland the second time because they were young and inexperienced... our D played terrible that day... the jags will be twice as hard if not tougher...

I would rather try to beat a team we are better than 3 times than play a team which outplayed us. Jags are better than the Browns. We seem to score at will against teams with weak defenses. Jags have a solid d, and there o -line controlled as well. Browns one dimensional. We will beat them again unless Cribbs has a huge day and or Steelers turn the ball over. Knock on wood we have been very good at not turning the ball over this year. I think we are capable of beating any team right now except the Pats. Unfortunately we are also capable of losing to just about any team as well. We need huge adjustments in order to stop Brady, Moss , and Welker.

The Colts, Eagles and Ravens came very close to beating the Pats. I was extremely disappointed by the fact that our team's coaches didn't take clues from those teams, in crafting the game-plan. Our secondary continues to be a liability. Sure, they look good when we play the likes of Browns and Cincy. However, when we run into teams like Pats, our defense looks sooooooo mediocre. Anyway, I hate to say this but if there is any team that is capable of beating the Pats, it's the Jags.

Every defense has looked mediocre against the Pats. Its their O-line's ability to "hold" blocks and give brady the time he needs. And they make adjustments when there is a break down.

Early in the game last night, Porter had a huge sack on Brady by beating his guy on the outside. The very next play, it looked like he'd do it again, but the right guard pulled out and after Porter beat the tackle, the Gaurd smashed him in the mouth. They adjust so quick, and play sound football up front.

We'll have an answer for them though if they play us again.

The Browns are not the wildcard team that scares me, it's the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have potential to beat anyone, even though they're not the best. Yes and I said anyone that includes the patriots. But heck we can beat them too. Anyway, we should be fine against the brownies, we beat them twice we can do it again. Especially at home.

The Clowns tried to crawl up on the porch with the big dogs and got shat upon.

They're now crawling home with their tails tucked between their legs, dribbling little puddles of pee down their legs, wailing like skeered little pups beggin to be let in the back door.

Oh wait......that's just their swolled headed fans....gettin' slapped back to reality.

The Browns are still at least one year away from competing with us. They don't have the defense capable of stopping us, and their offense is starting to run out of gas. If they can back into the playoffs with a Titans loss and somehow the Chargers lose to the Raiders, we'll all get to see, but I can't envision any scenario where those Browns beat these Steelers on Heinz Field in January when it counts most.

It would be nice to be the AFCN team that always knocks other AFCN teams out of the playoffs...

Browns this year... Bengals two years ago, Browns in 2002. Sure would be nice.

Its going to be a punch in the face for whoever we play in the first round.

What most of these other teams don't have, Jacksonville, San Diego, and Cleveland, or even the Titans, is Playoff Experience.

We have guys on the Roster that have been in the playoffs for the last 8 - 10 years, minus last season. They know how to prepare, know the pressure of a playoff game, know the pressure of a SuperBowl game and what type of attitude you need to bring to win in the playoffs. The Pats and Colts have that experience, but the others, the 1st rounders and the other seeds, haven't been in AFC Title game after AFC Title game or deep into the playoffs year after year. Only the Pats and Colts have that, and know what it takes. I'm looking for the Steelers to move past round one, much easier than anyone thinks. And then, when the other team, Colts or Pats show up on game day, and look across the field and see us they will say "Crap, not these guys again." Because they will know, it won't be easy to take us out.
