Vegas Lists The Steelers As Huge Favorites vs Seattle
 
They are favored by 16! I think we'll be just fine. Shrug off the Balt game and get ready for next week.

We do traditionally well after tough losses. I think the Seahawks are in for a nasty surprise next week. Just gotta rebound and move on, and learn from mistakes made yesterday. That's the only thing that can be done. Can't let it dwell and linger.

Agreed. Early season NFL means very little. Just get to your bye week at 2-2 or 3-3 and get hot at the end of the season. I remember how the sky was falling after the Philly game a few years ago - and then we went on to pick up our 6th ring. :tt:

People were panicking after the New England game last year too and then we made the SB. But yep, I am a little worried, I won't lie but it's still early and a lot of foot ball to be played. People just need to realize that this is still the same team that went to the Super Bowl last year. We need to improve certainly but people acting like the season is lost are being chicken littles pure and simple.

16 is a little much, IMO.

seattle is weak and they have to travel across the country to play us. if we don't win this game big, then that causes more concern than the baltimore disaster

if we come out flat after that ugly ass display, then nothing is going to get these guys motivated and the mindset is just totally wrong this year

I hope we're not 2-2 or 3-3 by then, because the bye week is in week 11

I have no doubt we will beat them, it's how we beat them. The pass coverage has to be better ( I know it will never be great) and that starts with pressure. I'll be looking at that D line a lot. Ben has to step up, the interceptions yesterday were unbelievable, nearly video game status the way they were thrown, ridiculous. With these receivers this should be an explosive offense, he has to step it up and play like we are used to him playing. Another big thing I think to watch for is how are they hitting and running around? If they are lazy running, or whatever you would call how they were running yesterday, then it could be a long year. I'm looking for these guys to be flying around laying "the wood" on some Seahawks. If Ben doesn't at least get the passing game going "well" and if our guys our slow and unprepared then the rest of the season looks ugly. We come out moving the ball and knock someone the f*&^ out, then there's still a good chance we can win this year, just HAVE to fix the O line and the #2 corner.
