Well, let's think for a minute. Our defensive mantra for this season is that we are going to dictate to them how the game will be played.

So, how do we think that is going to play out, against Whiz and Grimmy? What do we think they are going to think?

They are going to try and throw, is what that means. They figure that they have some pretty potent weapons, and Whiz certainly remembers last year's debacle with Ike and knows that we haven't faced any good QBs yet. They know that teams who beat the Steelers over the last two years did it by piling up points early and often.

So, we will dictate the game by playing suffocating pass defense. This is the week we get to see how Lebeau has mixed in Cover 2. But sometimes we will jam the receivers hard at the line. We'll force them to mix in the shorter passes, then we'll sit on the routes and intercept; on the longer routes look for coverage sacks. Hampton covers the run; the Cards don't have the line to beat us. Okobi, our "center of the future", lost out to a UDFA.

Last week's game tape will be useless for AZ. Those weaknesses have already been identified and will be addressed and corrected. Tomlin is one week ahead already.

Even still, stopping them won't be easy. Leinart and Fitz are great talents, and they can put up the numbers against us. But we get the ball, too. Honestly, this is going to be the week the Steelers score at will. I look for 40+ points from Ben & Co.

I dunno, 45-17, 45-23, something like that.

I don't see how Leinart to do really anything against the Steelers this week. Really, he hasn't impressed me at all this year and it's only going to get worse against the Steelers D this Sunday. Even if they put in Warner, I'm not scared of him.

It's only been in the high 70s the last few days in Las Vegas. I doubt it will be that hot in Phoenix on Sunday. Doesn't matter. Our D will make Whisenhunt rue the day he left the Steelers.

heres a quote from an article about the roof being open-

"Here's a tipoff that it won't be: The Cardinals will wear their usual home, red jerseys, which means the Steelers will dress in white. Also, the Cardinals usually keep their roof close during hot weather; in fact, they were criticized a few times last year when they closed it on cooler days."

If I might quote an old wrestling line used by the Rock...

"IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOUR STARTING QB IS"

We will game plan and be prepared for both. The Steelers will be exceptional and are expected to be great in all phases of the game. The trust the players have in each other is evident, they make their assignments, don't try to play over themselves, do what they are required to do and win as a team. 3 games, 3 dominant performances. The 4th is on the way.

It looks like it is starting at 3:15 EST, which would make it 12:15 PM in AZ - I don't think the schedule makers took into account that Arizona doesn't observe daylight savings time when this game was scheduled(?) - that's the only thing I can think of that would account for the odd starting time.

OK - saw the start time on NFL.com - I'm glad I did or I probably would have tuned in at 4:00, missing the first quarter or so...I hate pre-game shows.
