The Rats will likely try what they used last year: Throw lots of blitzes at Ben. Ben, like he said himself, has to get the ball out and quickly. He's the X-factor for the Steelers in this game.

One thing that worries me is the O-Line. They really need a spectacular game. Unfortunately, with Kendoll Simmons lining up. I can only hope for an above-average game from them.

Last year is last year, but I'd show parts of those two games during every team meeting this week to keep that awful taste in the players mouths. There is no better motivator then revenge.

All games are crucial, but this one is huge. Let's take it to them baby.

Ben needs to work on hitting the hot receiver rather than scramble and try to out run the pass rush -at this point I am not expecting great strides by tehe O-line.

While watching NFL Replay of the game last night there were 2 points of maximum danger on the drive for the FG in the 4th quarter - when Ben scrambled and got hit around the Steelers 40 on what was ruled an incomplete pass & later on that drive when Ben threw across his body across the field to Holmes (a great result buta dangerous play).

And the D cannot play soft like it did on the Bengals last drive
Against the Ravens those sorts of acts will lead to turnovers.

I agree this is going to be a tough game for us and, As long as Ben takes of the ball we should do fine. Plus last year we played like crap against them but, the things that worries me this year is that are not beating the teams we should beat. We should beat both the cards & broncos. Even though the bengals have a very good offense there defense is not that good. If we can play our brand of football which is a balance mix we should win this game. I know the ravens always seem to play pretty good against us. Ben is really playing well this year but, he can't get crazy against the ratbirds. Take the check downs if nothings else is open or just throw it away. You know Willie Parker kind of reminds me of Barry Sanders a little bit you may stop him most of the time but he seems to break a big one almost every game. I know it way too early to compare.

Here we Go Steelers!!

imo, this game by far will be our biggest challenge. throw stats and our records out the door on this one. just like the article said, they have had a lot of injuries and have had 2 weeks to get healthier and prepare for us. they are the team to beat until we beat them. PLEASE protect ben decent in this one! my biggest worry.....
