The Titans look pretty bad, almost as bad as the premise of this thread.

A defense can only do so much with X's and O's. It's more about pressure and aggressiveness. Could they get burned a few times playing like that? Yeah, but haven't the Steelers gotten burned playing scared quite a few times already?

Would you rather have Timmons drop back into coverage, or have him in the other teams backfield wrecking havoc?
The Steelers were ALWAYS burned playing scared defense this season. Which is precisely why this thread was created.

If Lebeau trots out the conservative bullshit against Tennesee, the Defense is going to fail. Miserably. Again.

I think that the Steelers clearly rememebr LenDale Fat stomping on a Terrible Towel. They also rememebr CJ2K taunting the defense. They also remember Alge Crumpler jumping onto Troy's knee.

So, NO, I do not think that they are overlooking them.

That said, TENN is a tough place for the Steelers to play... and Run DMC had a long run against the Steelers, and so could CJ2K.

Summation:
TENN gets a few easy points (17)... but, ultimately, BB prevails: 31 points.

No way do we play down to them. Alot of people predicted us to blow out the raiders and broncos on this board and I refused to post in those threads because I thought there was a chance we would lose but births time. I predict that we score at least 4tds and hold them the 2 or less.

Agree big time. Plus we probably wouldn't even qualify for postseason play with a loss here.

I agree: a loss to a team that cannot seem to beat anyone else (a top-5 in the draft type of team), would signify deeper troubles on the Steelers than just being 2-3.

I disagree: the 1995 Steelers started off 3-4... and made it to the SuperBowl. TENN has always been a difficult place for PITT to play. And, it is a road trip, on a shortened week. A los here could simply be a loss.

I foresee: PITT taking care of business, and being 3-2... with ten days to prepare for CINCY.

When they were in our division, they used to be good, not anymore.
