Season Record
After witnessing the first two games. What is everyones idea on what we can fully accomplish realistically. Are we going to handle the patriots. Can we stop peyton manning on the road. I think 13-3. And what about them Bungles???

Re: Season Record
I still think we can have double digit wins this year. As for the Pats, we will have our hands full as they still can add wrinkles in coverage which is a weakness for Ben to read. Also, Haven't seen this weeks footage, but they are not too bad at stopping runs with that front four. I do believe we go with double TE stuff and run or playaction to mismatches in coverage. Playing at home is a help as the crowd will be amped. As for Manning, he has trouble with 3-4 defense and physical defense. With Troy going wild, it could cause trouble. I would rather play them on grass, yes. As for the Bengals, will they start drinking their own kool-aid? We have shown we can refocus after winning game after game. Will Bengals get comfy and relax at the wrong times?

I believe the game against the Patriots will be hard fought, for the first half. I say we'll get a hold on the game in te third quater and keep it. The running game may be limited, but I have complete faith in Ben to take care of business. Yesterday NE had almost 90 yards in penalties, so hopefully next week will be even worse. Troy jumping around behind the line, and the fans at Pittsburgh ought to count for a few false starts. As for the Colts, I believe we'll be able to pressure Manning and shut down their offense. The Bengals always put up a fight, and yesterday they were looking pretty good.

Re: Season Record
Im not gonna jinx us and look ahead. The team is taking 1 game at a time, so Im doing the same. But as long as we play to our potential and keep doing what we are doing, the sky is the limit w/ us this year.

Re: Season Record
The Steelers will lose 2 or 3 games this year...I don't see a 4 loss season.

The Patriots game will be a very good game.We come out on top.It might not be a complete slaughter like out last two...but we'll at least score 24 on them.

The Bengals will be second in the division (behind us) and probally end up with a Wild Card playoff spot.However,they will come down when they face a real defense (like us).Also,thier defense isn't as good as it looked yesterday.

Re: Season Record
The Patriots are going to be the hardest team to beat this year. Bengals look like our strongerest interdivision competition ( I still have a hard time saying that).

Re: Season Record
As much as I hate to admit it. The Bungles always seem to be a thorn in our side, no matter how good we are, and we are. But they are beatable. The Pats, I`m not sweating this team. We have a better passing game this year, a faster and better running attack. We a starting to gel. We will NOT go undefeated, but we will win this week. And we will extend our season, all the way to Detroit.

Re: Season Record
Ah the pats this week. Thinking this game might come down to the last few minutes of the game. Pats coming off a loss, will be refocused and ready.
