I do beleive Ben has to prove that he can throw the ball on the opening drive. With the preseason that he had, they will stack the line , wanting to stop the run. This game may rest on Bens shoulders, he has to let the league know now, that he can play ball. Preseason is over. Rusty, timing, holdouts, screw all the excuses, throw the damn football.

My guess is the Titans are going to be stacking the box trying to stop the run. I'd heave it deep on the first play to try and loosen them up a bit.

IMO we will use the screen pass more on 1st & 2nd down in the games first few series. IMO Mr. Parker adds more than speed, he brings a new dimension to the offense with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. We tradionally haven't run screens with Jerome (or Duce) on those downs, but reserved those for Verron on third down situations. I'd also like to see the shovel pass used with Willie in the game. Lower "risk" passes with some upside potential.

I'd probably say a out or curl to H. Ward just to get Ben some early confidence. Then i'd probably say if the pass is completed then a couple runs with W. Parker.

Let me say, altough everyone has different ideas about the first play, and first drive. You are all knowledgable Steelers fans. You ought to really pat yourselves on the back. Everyones ideas seem so Steeler like, that it could only come from true Steelers fans. And by the way Thank God the old days of 3rd and 15 , and the Steelers run a draw play, are over I hope. We have weapons , use them Coach.

Your all wrong. First play will be defensively. Our defense will be on the field. Sack by Porter with a forced fumble picked up by townsend and ran in for a touchdown. defense wins championships. We will definately opt to put our D on the field before our O so we will get the ball in the second half.

I like the way Da Boot is thinking...take a page out of the Raiders/Vikings playbook and haul off a bomb on the very 1st play...I'd love to see a 65 yard TD on the first play...shock and awe the Titans.
