No, not worried. We're a couple bad bounces away from being 10-1 right now. We can hang with anybody.

I hope we go all the way, but my gut feeling from this past summer training camp is that we will put up good offensive numbers all year (I was wrong). Then in the playoffs the lack of a short yardage running game will be the achilles heel.

We will see I guess.

This season will b nothing of like last season due to the fact is last season down the stretch our defense fell apart not our offense. I don't see any of the defense falling apart which gives us a huge advantage since it's been 11 straight games without giving up 300 total yards of offense.

The Steelers managed on offense last night. Sure they didn't run well, but they did on that last drive for sure and Ben came out played well and threw and ran for a TD. We had offense tonight.

We will need better performance to beat teams like Dallas and the Pats, but im not worried about any of that. 2 game lead over the Ratbirds and 4-0 in the division bolds pretty well for us.

OMG the sky is falling, huh?

No, really, as long as Ben keeps a clear head and doesn't do his Brett Favre impression -- by which I mean the ill-advised-scrambling, forcing-bad-passes Brett Favre from 2-3 years ago -- we'll be fine.

We are a speed and finesse passing team now - with a speed defense that relies on the rush from the edges.

Should have installed field turf, a slow track, cow-pasture of a field only helps the enemies.

Better hope it stays frozen the rest of the way and doesn't rain.

I am seriously hoping we can beat those Patsies in the next game, but I don't think the defense we run will work against the Patsies. Cassell is good at escaping up the middle and picking up huge yards which is our Achilles heel. He will get rid of the ball quickly and dink and dunk it down the field. I hope Lebeau does not play the defense the way he usually does or the Patsies will dink and dunk us to death. Ben better have a good game because I suspect we will not be able to run on the Patsies. I hate Bellicheat but he always seems to have a pretty good game plan against our very predictable offense. We need to be unpredictable or we will not come out with a win.

Yep, that Casey Hampton is a speedster.

Last year smash-t year. Remember our schedule at the beginning of last year was pretty easy. We probably were not as good as we thought we were. Couple that with the loss of Parker and Smith and we fell off at the end of last year. Of course, we were a holding penalty not called away from winning a playoff game (not cryhawking, just pointing out that in spite of things we almost moved on last year).

Finally, some here seem to think this is the BCS. The NFL is not a beauty pageant. There will be no swimsuit competition (a good thing for Casey). All that matters is wins and looses, not how well you pine for world peace through botox enhanced lips . A win is a win.

WTF???

Our speed rush comes from the outside - try and follow along.


A fast field will only enhance our speed rushers.




doofus.

doofus, really that is what you are going to call me? Wow, way to stay classy. I guess an earlier bedtime on school nights is in order.

I can read just fine, thanks.

This is a forum for different opinions. If you can't take a little jab with a (which I guess you missed), I'll start the countdown clock until your inevitable blow-up with one of our more volatile members.
