Default Re: Cook: Steelers should be able to win with Batch

The odds of a Miami win have improved for sure but i'd still make the Steelers slight favorites - even though the bookies dont agree.

There are certainly some question marks about the Pittsburgh offense - how will Willie respond to teams gameplanning specifically for him, will the O-line be able to up its game to give Batch a little more time.....etc etc..

But I still believe that Miami as a team, and specifically as an offense have alot of unanswered questions beginning with a QB in a new environment, with new teammates and returning from a fairly serious injury.

I thought this would be a low scoring game with Ben behind centre - I think so even more now.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
