Let's get through this game with no injuries and another win for Charlie in his backup role. :tt02:

I'd love to see Charlie get a win under his belt and with a little help from the second teamers, I think he can be very successful today against a decimated Rats D! :tt02::tt02::tt02:

It should be a nice low scoring game. 10-9 Steelers winning. As much as I am watching to see our new running game, I highly doubt we have much success running on them. Troy Smith should turn the ball over a couple of times so maybe we will score a bit more. I cant see them getting over 150 yards of offense on us. We need to get our special teams dialed before the playoffs. With our 0-line struggles we can only win without turnovers and good special teams play. I will drink to no injuries!

A win over the Nevermore's today and we sweep the Division for the season. Not bad for a team predicted to finish 3rd in the North. :tt02:

Anybody else watching Jags/texans game?
The Texan's Davis has just returned two back to back kicks for TDs.
Parker/Bettis/Texan/diehard fan should be pleased. :wink02:

im starting to have the end of the season blues.

luckilly we have 1 more game after today, but i cant remember a steelers team going into the playoffs that will be given less of a chance to win than they are being given for jacksonville.

in fact, i think the steelers were given a better chance to beat the patriots a few weeks ago, than they will be given next week.

man this season flew by fast.

I'm really hoping to see some guys get weened out today.

Tomlin can't be afraid for a bit of an overhaul. This is a team with either really old or really young talent.

He needs to set this team up for the next generation and I can think of a handful of guys who shouldn't be a part of that.
