It's cool...and welcome to the board!

I like you're write up on the game, and this is definitely Pittsburgh's game to lose.

I have trouble thinking that just because the Steelers are pissed about the loss, that this will be an easy win on Sunday. There were a lot of games that "should" have been easy wins in '09, and we just got creamed.

I know Carroll has these guys pumped up, and I know he always has the mentality that they CAN beat anyone if they plan properly...it showed last year when they actually did it in the playoffs.

Here's to a good game though...and please, please, please don't let anymore of our OL men get hurt! (or yours either lol)

I'm not even going to read that, but if seattle beats us it's safe to say our team should just focus on rebuilding cause we ain't gonna beat anybody

Thanks SCMom. The spread is 14.5 points right now. I think it's justified. However, I'm hoping if the Steelers get off to a slow start, they might get frustrated.

Hey, I'm not gonna argue with you; however, though Seattle is struggling on offense, they're defense may suprise you. It's better than you think.

What the heck, man. I didn't say they were going to win. I said they could if they did everything perfectly. Calm down.

If the Steelers play like the way they played against Baltimore then we'd lose to Notre Dame. 7 turnovers is just un-acceptable but coming back home, after getting humiliated, going up against a much more inferior team has the works of murder written all over it.

However, I've watched the NFL for a long time and I've seen how Pittsburgh plays down to their competition so I wouldn't be surprised to see Seattle make a game out of this. If the Steelers don't win by more than 3 TD's then that'll worry me.

Good luck SeahawksBlogger.

They need to cream Seattle by 3-4 TDs. If they play down to their level, there is no telling what can happen. We have seen it before. Rarely do teams from the Western states come out and beat the Steelers at home. But I still remember the Raiders doing that very thing not that many years ago. That game was pathetic and I hope there is not a repeat of it. Seattle is an even worse team than that Raiders team was. Tavaris Jackson is a joke. How he ever got another starting gig in the NFL is beyond my comprehension. But we did have Kordell Stewart as a QB for a few years too many, so go figure.

Ya that Raiders game still mystifies me, I was at the game and 3 times inside the 20 in the first half and only 3 points to show for it. If we accomplish that low lite this week we will be in trouble. The Seahawks have an equalizer, his name is Leon Washington. If we're not careful he could return 1 or 2 against us and keep Seattle in the game. I am hopeful we put the hammer down on D and O and score every time the opportunity presents itself. For me I want to see a 40 burger on the Seahawks.

Hopefully our fans will keep the Steeler's on track. Playing at Heinz is gonna be a big, big plus. I know all numbers show this should be an easy win....but we all know that 'easy win' games in the past didn't always go that way. If this game was in Seattle, I'd be really concerned. Hopefully the Steeler's come out pissed and hit them hard and constantly. Play as New England would.....50-0 looks good. Have the 2nd string in there by 4th quarter. Just my opinion.

yeah true. the main reason why i think we have a huge advantage is because we're playing at home. if it was in seattle i wouldn't be as confident, we have a bad track record when traveling to the WC to play

Leon Washington is an equalizer; however, I doubt you guys have too much to worry about. That is unless you get off to a bad start, turn the ball over, etc. If I was betting, I'd probably take Pittsburgh and give away the14 points. Still, crazier things have happened.

If Green Bay and Baltimore exposed the Steelers for being slow in the secondary, I doubt Seattle has the ability to take advantage. My hope is that Jackson will get benched, and Charlie Whitehurst gets in the game. He's no Tom Brady; but he can push the ball down the field and check down without getting sacked.

if i were a betting man i would take seattle getting 14 points.....we look old and slow and they need to show me something to make me think they aren't.....i think we will win but only by 7 or 8

I'll be pissed if the Steeler's ' toy around ' with Seattle. The Steeler's should do what good teams like the Pat's would do....come out smokin' and score, score, score. They should be able to put this team away within the first few series. A score of 50-0 isn't out of the question. By the 4th quarter we should be putting in the back-ups and only 'garbage points' from that point on. I'm sick and tired of our conservative crap we do. Score...score....score, and then score again. Teams we should beat...destroy and humiliate them. Make teams afraid of you....like we were in the past. Geesh....sorry for venting, but thanks for letting me. GO STEELER'S

Our secondary has the habit of making qb's look like Montana at times.

Roethlisberger has led the Steelers to a 12-1 record in interconference home games he's started, averaging an impressive 8.48 yards per attempt and posting a 92.9 passer rating.

Seattle, meanwhile, has lost its last eight road games against AFC opponents -- a streak that began with a 21-0 loss in Pittsburgh on Oct. 7, 2007.

Steelers need to come out strong and don't let Seahawks believe they have a chance.

You're a moron. I didn't say they would. If you read the damn article, you'd have seen I said the Seahawks winning was highly unlikely.

As for the rest of you, good luck with the rest of the season. I still think Pittsburgh has a great shot to win the Super Bowl if they can figure out a way to slow down Brady and the Patriots.

Best of luck!

thanks. i don't think we get to the super bowl through the pats, we have to hope another team like the jets or ravens knocks them off, we're ill suited to stop brady.
