I didn't see one of these posted already, so here we go...

STEELERS 32
Chargers 16

I feel a rare offensive explosion coming on (any time we score 30 it's an explosion)

Ben - 20 / 28 - 275 yards and 3 TDs

Rivers - 13 / 30 - 145 yards 0 TDs 2 INTs

MVP: Brown - 9 catches / 98 yards and 1 TD

I very much doubt Ben tosses an interception - three games off or not.

I foresee a surge from SD, but ultimately, their O-line is in shambles, and Philip Rivers was already a turnover machine. I've stated it several times: James Harrison will have 5 splash plays: either sacks or creating INTs (via pressure).

I see 3 sacks (1 w/ a strip) and 2 INTs. The Steelers capitalize on all three, for 17 easy points... plus two other scores (10 points).

Total: 27

SD has only scored 8 offensive TDs in their past 7 games... and even though they do really well in December, and even though they will be playing hard for their lame-duck coach, I really do not see much offense occurring (see the aforementioned comments about the O-line & about Rivers).

Total: 13 points

SD: 13
PITT: 27

Steelers in a closer than I would like contest. Ben struggles first game back and Rivers plays one of his best but not enough. Good guys 24-17/ Not hating . just when was the last time we blowed anybody out..

17-16, another down to the finish Squeezum boot.
Believe Ben will be targeted major and makes several errors.
Rushing game will have a pathetic performance but the ST will outdo themselves.

I made this comment in another thread so I will make it "officially" here, lol....
Rivers is a fellow draft mate of Bens from the 04 draft. I expect Ben to be on his game and the rest of the team play hard for him.
Another thought is this game amounts to a 10 am start for the dolts.

31-13 steelers

Wish I could predicate a blow out with teams we should blow out, BUT that doesn't happen with this team anymore. 17-13 Steelers

I'd like to slightly alter my prediction.

Rivers' second INT will come late in the game, when he is trying to make a late-game comeback... only to throw a game-losing INT (which he has routinely been doing at the end of games).

Minus 3 points from PITT, because after that final INT, PITT will simply kneel down three times (as opposed to taking advantage of the shortened field, for a FG).

SD 13
PITT 24

I'd give another in-depth "psychic prediction" of the game, but it's been a tiring week and my hands don't want to cooperate!

laugher...

I think it's time we acknowledge the fact that we just suck. This year is down the toilet.

How many losses to bad teams do you need before you admit that it's the steelers that is the bad team?

Boy did I ever whiff on that one!!! We STUNK today. Not the sign of a playoff ready team. Very disappointing.
