I really feel the 49ers are over rated. They have only played one top notch team that brought the lumber (ratbirds) and looked bad.

I agree to an extent. The problem is they have lost 2 ugly road games and are playing at home tonight. I expect nothing less than for Harbaugh to have them playing lights out tonight. But having said that, it is imperative the Steeler rush put Alex Smith on the ground early and often. And do not let Vernon Davis get crazy down the field!

tread lightly.... They make very few mistakes and I wouldn't call what the Ravens did to them an "ass kicking". To look that bad and still kept it close in Baltimore says a lot. They don't turn the ball over, really solid defense and they haven't been exactly blown out. Playing them in Candlestick is gonna be a little different then them being here.

Could be one of the best MNF games in awhile!

One good thing is that the stick is not known for being very loud. The 49ers are monsters against the rush. Teams average like 70 something yards a game against them. BR has to stay healthy and Pitt needs to put Smith on his back early and often. Pitt must stop the run, 49ers average 126 yards a game. Passing the 49ers are not that scary. 182 yards a game. Field goals are going to be tricky in the swirling winds.

I'm so pissed the Ravens blew it Sunday. They gave you guys a golden ticket for home field.

That tickets not a gimmy yet......But if the Steelers really want it they'll have to play good ball.

The pessimist in me says that the Steelers will give that golden ticket right back. Hopefully that will not be the case.

Try 9 sacks, 12 QB hits, 4 pass deflections, an interception. Keeping your opponent
to 2 out of 12 3rd down converstions.
