Steelers Cowboys thoughts
 
This is a thread for POSITIVE thoughts on the upcoming game. If you are one of the many doom and gloomers or crybabies on this forum please do your sniveling elswhere. That being said, I am hoping for a solid debut of DD to help shore up some Oline troubles and get our running game back on track.

The Cowboys got their motivating after death whatever you wanna call it, win against the Bengals. They are due for a severe let down this week, especially against a good defense with an ailing Dez Bryant.

Translation: Don't post on this thread if you want to discuss the Steelers objectively.

A rookie with not even a single NFL game of experience is going to save our running game and team?

Yeah, I will leave this thread so you and your boyfriends can sword-fight in private..

Says the bonehead that doesn't know the difference between "your" and "you're".

Look, dude, I am not going to sit here and argue with you-- life is too short to waste it on juvenile crap like this.

Sorry if you think my assessments are too negative-- but I think you have me mixed up with someone else. I am usually one of the few posters that doesn't jump to knee-jerk reactions after a bad game or two around here-- you would know this if you have read my posts for any length of time. I never go along with the "fire _____" threads, and don't think we are in a red alert situation.

You probably read my "disturbing trends" thread, which was an unusual one for me. It was supposed to be tongue-n-cheek, which I thought I conveyed in the first sentence when I made a quip about "venting mode".

I prefer to be realistic in my assessments though. I will always cheer for the Steelers, and not count them out until they are mathematically eliminated.

But I am being completely realistic here-- taking all the injuries into consideration, and trends we have seen from teh Steelers this year, they just aren't a very good team this season.

I can live with that.

But I'll be damned if I can't even discuss the issues as I see them, just because it hurts some more sensitive people's feelings.

Actually, that's exactly what's going to happen. Colon is notoriously bad at pulling and David made a living at Stanford doing exactly that. He allowed what, one sack during his tenure while protecting Luck? Colon was an aggressive guard that played with passion and heart but this often lead to penalties - something DeCastro didn't do at Stanford.

But no, don't let facts get in the way of doomsday predictions.

Sorry forgot you're the internet spelling police as well as an asshole, i said "I was hoping for" a solid debut, not expecting one. Thatis what you missed. And since i post from my cell phone i frequently shorten words and sometimes dont capitalize or use punctuation and dont correct spelling as i dontcare enough to deal with the pain in the ass of fixing it. Oh the horror of improper grammar on the interwebz!

Im a realist and also look at things objectively but I think this thread is meant for the fans that aren't saying how bad we are and that we're done for the season. I think it was meant to be for the fans that realize we are still in the playoff picture and still have an opportunity to do some good things. That being said I believe the Steelers have a great chance in this game. Romo is turnover prone so hopefully we can finally get some momentum changing turnovers. Field position will be key as well as controlling to time of possession by running the ball effectively.

You sound awfully self-assured, considering he has yet to play a single down of football in the NFL.

So pulling is all that is expected out of a guard in the NFL? How is he expected to do in pass protection? Will he cause any neutral zone infractions being completely new? Will he have some trouble picking up the playbook he has not participated in all season?

Yeah and Tim Tebow was supposed to carry his Heisman-worthy play into the NFL, not complete 43% of his passes. We can only predict so much from college performances.

Not saying Decastro will suck (I hope not), but I don't see where you have anything convincing here.

You have no facts that pertain to Decastro in the NFL. Denis Dixon was awesome in college, but was an interception waiting to happen in the NFL. Tim Tebow was supposed to be the next best thing to happen to teh QB position snce gloves and he stinks.

We can only draw so many conclusions from college ball performances. Some of that just does not translate into the NFL.

I am NOT the spelling police. But it takes a lot of gaul to call someone else a moron when you are blatantly murdering the English language in the same sentence. You lose some credibility...

Fair enough.

Again, I couldn't care less. But I am not going to call someone else a "moron" while committing blatant language errors. Go out on a limb and it might break....
