Ravens D may keep them in it but I cannot see that Ravens offense scoring 17 points next Monday night.
Only weapons they have on offense is McGahee and Heap.......The Steelers D will shut down Willis.....With Heap he has battled nagging injuries all year......Ok Mason and Clayton are decent WRs and that one kid that went to Oregon has played well at times this year but the Ravens QBs are terrible...lol I think age has finally caught up to Steelers killer Steve McNair and Boller is just well Boller...lol So I'm with you on the Ravens offense not scoring 17 points..

I thought the Ravens were over-rated last year and this year they don't have their best defensive player in Adailus Thomas.......They miss him so bad and I don't care what Ray Ray says...lol He is aging himself and is far from the player he once was......

If the Steelers play smart and don't beat themselves then they should win this game by at least double digits....No special teams TDs also.........That Yamon Figurs has the speed to do so damage on kick returns and the Ravens do throw Ed Reed out there on punt returns at times....

Steelers -21

Ravens-10

We better get it clicking or we'll be thumped just like last year against the Ravens. I don't expect or O to pet up many points next week.

steel_bus, it's always been that way. throwing short passes always shreds the steelers' defense. all lebeau needs to do is grow some balls and play the DBs closer to the WRs. the defense hasn't been the same since capers left. it may have been lebeau's design, but capers ran it better. of course capers did have a very good set of LBs. the group now is pretty much average all around.

Not only did Caper's have a better set of LBs....What about the secondary?.....lol That secondary of Woodson (before the knee injury),Lake, Perry was a great secondary.....

maybe they just been playing the cover 2 to make themselves better at it when they do go against teams that like to pass.. i think once they nail down the cover 2, that they will blitz a lil bit more...

I seen no swiss cheese D in Denver today. I saw a bend-don't-break D out there. Besides that lone Douchmanzadeh TD(coming off the Ben INT), the Bungles didn't do crap all game.

Like everyone else, I want the D to play to their fullest potential every game. But to be honest, I don't really care how it gets done, as long as it gets done and the team wins. Remember, it isn't how many yards you give up, it's how many POINTS you give up, and it should be noted that the Steelers lead the NFL with just over 13 points allowed/game. You do that, with the way our offense has been putting up points, and you win. Plain and simple.

Doing just enough to win at Paul Brown Stadium could be the plan. We don't want injuries.

I love watching Anthony Smith play football. He looks for the chum in the water.

ok... all the talk of lebeau holding back the defense yada yada yada has got to stop. we are playing every game to win.. not to save some "secret defense package" for the patriots.. our season does not revolve around that game.

i do wonder how much the defense is missing aaron smith though. i know we shut out the seahawks without polamalu and hampton.. but i think hoke is a better replacement for hampton than eason is for smith. the past two games our pressure has been severely lacking, and both games have been without smith.

I'm concerned about the way the Bengals backup running back was running the ball today. It appeared as though Palmer was seeing something and audibling to the correct running play. Hopefully we will change it up a little before other teams pick up on this. We have also been showing our defenses to early giving the offense a chance to pick up our blitzes.
