welcome. once again thank you for beating the most hated patriots in the super bowl again.

hoping for a good game next week. I honestly think most likely it will be a giants win, until our team proves it can perform on the road. tough test trying to prove that against the defending champions though, but there's always hope. the way our team has been playing the last 2 weeks makes me think we have a chance of coming away with the W, we'll see.

see ya next sunday.

What's up Steeler Nation!

Looking forward to our game. When I think of the AFC, I think of Pittsburgh, class franchise and fanbase, and the winning tradition. Can't help but like the Steelers, they remind me of my Giants. Hard to overlook when you think about it, both our QBs coming in the '04 draft and each bringing their respective teams 2 SBs up to this point, the Mara-Rooney connection, the rich history/tradition etc.

First game of the 2nd half of the season so naturally I feel like this is a very important game for us to try to cement ourselves as one of the top dogs in the NFC. So here's to a great game, no injuries on either side, and hopefully for me, a Giants win.

I'm a Giants fan too and cover their games as well as the Steelers, but there's no question I favor the Steelers. They also need this game a lot more. The Giants already have a 2.5 game division lead and have already been given 2 assists with the Steelers beating the Eagles and Redskins. Sucks one of them has to lose though.

It's better, but it's not a great defense by any stretch. They've given up a lot of points to some bad teams, and at home, too.

Probably is, our defense may be without Troy, Clark, and Woodley. If that's the case, I don't see how the Giants score less than 30.

Giants fan here, should be a great game between 2 classy organizations. I'm a bit concerned about the speed of the Steelers' receivers against the Giants' secondary, but I think the d-line can get to Big Ben. It'll be a long day for the Giants if they don't get any pressure. Thanks for beating the Eagles and Redskins! May the best team win Sunday.

Very true. Although they share the same stadium, Giant fans/games are completely different from Jet fans/games.
You can go (and I will this week) to a Giant game dressed in visiting colors and the most you'll hear is some good natured ribbing.
Jet games??......Well, good luck if you're wearing black and gold.

Victor Cruz, Eli Manning and Ahmad Bradshaw won me some money in my fantasy league last year. So I started watching them a lot and rooting for them. Not this year though. Couldn't get any of those guys. Other than that I am pretty ambivalent about any NFC team. Could care less who wins any of their games unless they are playing the Steelers or wanting them to beat the Ratbirds, Bungles or Clowns or Patsies. AFC all the way.

Steelersfan87
10-29-2012, 02:30 PM
Regarding the Giants' defensive line, the Steelers were able to handle the Bengals' line on the road pretty well, and that was with Legursky at center and Adams making his first career start. Call me crazy, but I feel pretty good about the o-line's chances of not allowing the d-line to dominate the game. I watch Giants games every single week and analyze them because I have to write about them, and to be perfectly honest they're not quite where they were last year anyway. Will Jason Pierre-Paul kick Max Starks' ass probably 4 or 5 times? Yeah. But other than that (and with Heath chipping at him as often as possible), I think the matchup is pretty even. It's going to be fun to watch. The thing I'm most worried about is preventing the big play.

I'm feeling good about this game. If we can keep the pass rush at bay, that defense is very beatable. Eli has been clutch, but you have to ask yourself why has he had to be?

Partly on their defense, partly on Eli averaging an INT per game.

He was actually pretty good last year, but didn't get off to a very good start this year. Adams filled in pretty well the last couple of weeks. The long term plan was thought to be Adams at LT and Gilbert at RT, with Starks being out.

Win or Lose Sunday, I'll always have a soft spot for the G-Men for vanquishing the vile New England Patriots TWICE and being a nemesis to the Dallas Jerrahs, another team Steeler fans hate. Like the Packers, they are one of the few teams in the NFL I wouldn't be afraid to tip my hat to. They're a classic NFL franchise.

Super Bowl XLII was my favorite Non-Steelers Super Bowl ever, simply because the Pats were UNBEARABLE that year and it was an absolute joy to see them lose. So yeah, mad props to Eli and the Giants.

I hope to see a good game Sunday at MetLife, is all.

This is hilarious. On Giants' message boards, they're all saying the Steelers have a very good chance to win this game and it's not an upset at all if either team wins. Most are saying they'll probably walk out of NY with a W on Sunday. Giants fans are saying that. Then, you go to the Steelers' forums and we're saying the Giants are probably the favorites and have a great chance of beating the Steelers at home. Even on neutral sites (espn, bleacherreport, nfl.com) Giants fans are saying the Steelers are going to win, and Steelers fans are saying the Giants are probably going to win. I don't know if you guys checked the day we played the Jets, but oh dear god - the sheer amount of idiocy and cockiness on all sites was ridiculous. It's amazing how fanbases shift so dramatically in one city from one team to another.

Decent defenses, really good receiving corps, and both teams with two time super bowl winning QB's at the helm. I'm pretty excited for this game.

Tom Coughlin on the Steelers

"Pittsburgh Steelers. The tradition, we had talked about tradition in the National Football League. You don’t get any more traditional than the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are 4-3, they’ve lost three games on the road and they’re a very, very good football team.

They are 11th in the league on offense, they are second on defense. They’re traditionally a tremendous, powerful football team, very physical football team.

They have an outstanding return game, they’ve had a couple of punt returns called back that were touchdowns. They have this young kid from Florida (running back Chris Rainey). They have an outstanding kick returner.

So, they do have a large offensive line. They have a group of running backs who seem to replace one another when injures do take their toll, with (Jonathan) Dwyer being the most recent runner. The receiving corps is outstanding. They have tremendous speed on the outside. In (Heath) Miller, they have a go-to, dependable tight end that has played very well. He provides Ben (Roethlisberger) with a reliable source that he goes to quite often.

Roethlisberger has the ability to extend plays, which he’s done throughout his career. Much has been said about the way in which they’ve directed and changed their offense over there. He has been well protected, he has not been hit nearly as much, nor is he forcing anything. He’s distributing the ball very well to any number of receivers.

Defensively, they’re powerful, they’re strong, and they’re an attack-mode team, just like they always have been. Multiple looks, the creation because of versatility of opportunities in terms of coverages, pressures, fire zones, all-out pressures on third down and in the green zone.

(Shaun) Suisham is kicking the ball very well. They have a young, rookie punter (Drew Butler) who has had one blocked, but has held up very well. So, this is an outstanding football team.

They defeated Washington last weekend, they defeated Philadelphia, and those are teams that we know very, very well. So, we’ve been studying them as best as we can over the last couple of days"

Yeah for some reason, perhaps the injuries to Polamalu, Harrison, etc, it seems like the Steelers defense has flown under the radar a bit this year as far as people talking about them but they are still top 5 I believe. We will prob see a game like 27-24. I hope it's the Giants on top of course but won't be surprised if it goes other way

i don't know about top 5 yet, this defense has the potential to be good, but they did give up 3 game winning drives this season, which doesn't make me comfortable going up against Eli

i agree that this game will probably be a good one. Tomlin hasn't been good in 'trap game' scenarios, but I don't think he'll be taking a team like the giants for granted (nobody does against defending champs). Probably will come down to the last drive, and like you said, i wouldn't be surprised if it goes either way. If there's anything I'm expecting, it's a good game.

There is a genuine respect with the Rooney/Mara connection that goes way back. The tradition and heritage of the franchises....same class or tier, generally speaking. The long term die-hard fans, and there are many of both, acknowledge this usually. For sure.

The Ben/Eli dynamic that has grown in recent years has added a nice little spice to this friendly rivalry.

I, for one, am happy that we are flying out the morning of. Not only could we get better rest the night before, but our sole focus on Sunday will be NOTHING but the gameplan. We don't have time to jack around about other things and I feel that plays to our advantage as a team.

Also, for what it's worth, I think the Giants aggressive defensive front plays RIGHT into our hands as an offense. With them pursuing upfield (their strength) I expect a lot of quick hitters and would LOVE to see some screens open up with a couple packages for Rainey. Talk about to the house? We can hit some big ones this Sunday....

I've always had a theory about why the Jets have never done anything since Joe Willie; it's because once they left Shea Stadium, they've never had a home they could call their own. They're like the Flying Dutchman of the NFL - a team that will always be at sea and never find a port.

For decades, they were the red-headed stepchildren sharing a stadium named after a rival and could never call "Giants Stadium" home no matter how many green sheets they hung on the walls. Even though it's now called "Met-Life Stadium", it will always be either Giants Stadium or just "The Meadowlands" which to most people is where the Giants play, not the Jets.

I think the Jets have always been in search of an identity and they've never really found one and until that changes - until they get a real home of their own, they're doomed to just keep sailing the oceans.

Probably is, our defense may be without Troy, Clark, and Woodley. If that's the case, I don't see how the Giants score less than 30.

Woodley and Clark have been listed as 'Probable' for this game...

http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Giants-Injury-Report---112/e3dbc792-c9ab-4f66-a0b3-a94243765b61

And I agree, it should be a good one, best game of the week by far. Though TBH, I'm kinda torn as to who to pick... defensively, I trust the Steelers D to shut down Eli more than I trust the Giants beat up secondary to stop Big Ben's passing attack (they did get carved up by Tony Romo last week, after all, giving up over 400 yards though the air, plus, Chase Blackburn is out for this game, and possibly Rolle and/or Phillips, too). The Giants also have the home field advantage, though, and are better offensively (though Pittsburgh looks like they've started to come on the last couple of games). Plus, Dwyer and Mendenhall might not play (they've both been listed as 'Doubtful' for this game), though Chris Rainey has looked sharp in the limited snaps he's taken so far, so, IDK, it's tough to say who'll win this one, it should be a competitive, close game that could quite honestly go either way, but I guess I'll give the (slight) nod to the G-Men just because it's at home. Pittsburgh surely needs it more, though, so who knows? Maybe they'll play with a sense of urgency for this week.

Should be a great game either way, though. :thumbsup:

Well, I was surfing the Gang Green Nation forums after the SB, and more of them than not said they were quite happy the Patsies lost, but there were still a handful of Jets fans on that forum pulling for the Pats in SB 46. :noidea:

Yeah, I don't get it, either.

good game guys. like i expected it was close and could go either way. i predicted it to go the giants way because i thought it'd be coming down to eli vs our 4th quarter defense.

Helluva game Steelers your defense made our offense look like a pee wee league team. Hopefully we can see you in the SB and play better. Just a total ass kicking. Ill be around be good guys.

I give your team props for trying to capitalize. They jumped all over every opportunity that came up in their favor, but when the well ran dry they sputtered out.

You guys have a very good team.

Seattle was a great team in the playoffs that year. People could say the same about the Steelers who were at one time 7-5 that season. I think we had the last seed in the AFC that year too. It's as much about who's hot as who the best is when it comes to the playoffs.

Yeah more and more its about who is hot at the end. Last high seeds to win the SB were you in 08 and Saints in 09. Home field advantage seems to be not such a big thing last few years

I often wondered if having the bye wasn't a good thing. Some teams that get the #1 or #2 seed look rusty when they come back to play, especially the ones that rested starters for a week or two before playoffs started

I don't post on the offical Giants forum anymore. There are a few cool people but like all message boards nowadays, full of crybabies if there is one bad play much less one bad game.

The strangest part is both of our franchises have had a ton of success, both lately and historically and there are fans crying about stuff. Can you imagine if we were fans of a team with zero success like Cleveland, Kansas City, etc. I just imagine the days of Dave Brown as my quarterback and immediately am grateful for what I got now even if its a terrible game like last week.

Dave Brown was awesome though, I will always remember that time he trucked Deion Sanders and trash talked him right after :rofl:

Exactly. My wife is a Chargers fan (by birth), and they have nothing to hang their hats on... nothing. Heck, their biggest hero is Dennis Gibson. And, if one Google's his name, one can see just how sorry that truly is.

Really?

So that means that guys like:

Sid Gillman, Don Koryell, Dan Fouts, Charlie Joiner, John Jefferson, Kellen Winslow, Wes Chandler, John Hadl, Philip Rivers, Natrone Means, Chuck Muncie, LaDainian Tomlinson, Lance Alworth, Antonio Gates, Kris Dielman, Doug Wilkerson, Fred Dean, Louie Kelcher, Jamal Williams, Shawne Merriman, Junior Seau, Willie Buchanon, Gill Byrd, Rodney Harrison, Quentin Jammer, John Carney, Speedy Duncan, Darren Sproles, Mike Scifres,..

are all what? Upholstery?

I mean, the Chargers may not have a trophy case full of hardware, but they had (and still have) some really great players and coaches and have been a big part of NFL history.

thats just it. the new generation of steeler fans have yet to suffer with the likes of a mark malone or cliff stout. they weren't around for the 80's, so they don't appreciate anything less than a super bowl trophy.

Dan Fouts never got them to the SuperBowl.

Junior did... but, they overlook his 17 tackles in that AFCCG, while simultaneously applauding Dennis Gibson.

Bolt fans are strange folk.

Yes, seriously. Crazy, huh.

It might be because they know that I am a Steelers fan, and thus, whenever we start to talk football, someone undoubtedly will scream out, "DENNIS GIBSON!!!" And then, the mob mentality sets in, and the chants start up, "Gibson!!! Gibson!!! Gibson!!!"

Again, it might just be when they are around me... a Steelers fan.

[Side-note: My personal favorite non-Steeler: Rodney Harrison. He played like I would have liked ot have played.]

By far my favorite moment with DB. The talent surrounding him was awful minus Rodney Hampton but he was pretty bad as well. If there were message boards around then I can only imagine. He was so despised around here that he had to wear his sunglasses when he was paying toll at the toll booths on the turnpike cuz even they would give him so much shit. For what it's worth I still rocked my Dave Brown 17 with pride lol like some of you did with your mark Malone jerseys

My fondest Charger memories involve Monday Night Football games between the late-70's Steelers and the Chargers with Fouts and "Air Coryell".

In those games, the defenses would basically take the night off and it was all about QB's and Wide Receivers and usually the last team to score was the winner.

Those were the days!
