Steelers’ Beat Writer: Texans Will Win
 
Ed Bouchette, the Steelers beat writer, gives his thoughts on the Texans game and why Pittsburgh has struggled so far this season.

we have played like hell on the road, and the texans are just coming off a disappointing loss. I have us dropping this one also most likely. I do hope I'm wrong though.

Bouchette had Houston chalked up as a loss at the start of the season when he had the Steelers going 14-2.

If you assume Houston is a playoff team this year, which I do, this looks grim - other than Baltimore I cannot recall a team that made the playoffs that season against which the Steelers have won on the road since 2005 (Sup[er Bowls do not count since neither team was at home)

To hell with Bouchette, I'm going with a "W" for us.

There's a lot of pride at stake right now and I can't see us getting waxed on the line like last week.
I say we'll step it up and give Ben the time he needs and if we do, it's all over but the cryin' for Houston.

I could see how Ed could feel like this, however I feel it depends on what Steeler team shows up. I really have a feeling this defense will get better week to week, I also believe that the Steelers no matter how ugly find a way to win. Something in my gut tells me we will see a different offense than we saw last week. The Texans are a decent team, however, I think the Steelers will play sound football on both sides of the ball.

tomlin has a bad track record in away games, under .500 against non-divisional opponents. If this game were a home game I'd be more confident

Bouchette has a pretty good track record with these types of things. I wouldn't advise laying money on the Steelers.

Would hate to see a loss but I am expecting one this week. Doesn't change the fact that I don't want to see it. Some folks just are realists.

If we some how some way squeek into the playoffs this year I will be happy but I seriously doubt it. It is only a matter of time until BB takes a huge shot from some 6'4" 260lb beast DE or LB and something goes snap. Mr. Scott is not a starting LT in the NFL sorry he just isn't Gilbert while holding his own is going to be out thought and beat but he is a rookie it happens. Put those together and you have an injured BB at some point this season.

Ben has dodged some bullets for a while now - at this rate it is only a matter of when sadly . . .

I don't want to see anything happen to him that is career threatening. (I have my selfish reasons) But - it would be a shame to see them squander him. I think if he didn't have a history of off-the-field issues he might have been more openly irritated about the line situation.
