Quick look at history against the Colts and my predictions. What do you all think about the game.

I'm thinking the Steelers better roll over the Colts. I would also like to see Mendenhall go for 100 in the game to, I was surprised when I saw he did go for 100 last week.

I dont think the Colts have a chance to win UNLESS the Steelers overlook them.If Manning was playing it would be a good game and a true test, but without him this team is totally different. They still have some offensive weapons so I doubt we will shut them out, but if we can score 24-35 and hold them to 3-10, I will be happy.

That is the key, focus on the Colts not the Texans. If they look past the Colts they will get upset.

No, there were over 100 yards rushing total, but Mendenhall only had 66 of them (and 12 receiving). I think he has a good shot of it this week though...we'll see. I'll probably be a bit unhappy if he doesn't actually, the Colts are terrible against the run.

I know this line is tired by now, but there's no way around it: if a team sucks against the run, we throw at them. It's frustrating as hell. I suspect we'll do it again tomorrow.

I agree. They are terrible against the run and we have a good core of backs behind Rashard and Issac. Even Mewelde has done well catching out of the back field. If we pound it, they will stack eight in the box and we can get some good match ups on the outside and Wallace cutting the field.

I think steelers win close one 21-20.

I'm sure Arains has a lot to do with this as well. The Steelers offense really needs to get back to the philosophy of overpowering the defense, today would be a great day to start that.

I think we go in there and find a team with more fight in them than we expect. All they've been hearing about is how bad they are without #18. It's true but pride keeps them in it for a while. Close until 4th qtr then we pull away, 31-17 Steelers.

The only worries we have in tonight's game is our offenses ability to play. We are better than the colts in every statistical category except interceptions. That basically comes down to coverage defense. If our offense finds a way to pass the ball successfully, we'll win this game fairly easy. Now I know statistics rarely mean anything of real significance, but we ARE better than this team in all but one statistic, and a loss would be, well, bad. We should have no problem rushing the ball after a couple passes, let's get Mendy some reps!
