Default Time for the Steelers...

To show the heart and resiliancy they lacked last year and Tomlin's ability to respond after a loss. They're 3-1, but they have to be the most questioned 3-1 team out there. Are they for real? Was the Arizona loss a fluke? Or is it just the beginning of a long season for them?

They're banged up, and they have a confident 3-1 Seahack team coming into Heinz with a lot of momentum after stomping the Niners. You may see this game as meaningless, but IMO, this game is pretty much a must-win.

Funny you should mention that, in nearly every poll I have read this week, the Steelers and Seahawks are ranked right next to each other, they are BOTH 3-1, both having lost to the weak Cardinals, and BOTH are getting questioned a lot. People can't seem to tell what kind of teams these two really are. And now they play one another...this should be interesting.

Seahawks fans are saying almost the same exact thing, except that we are coming off a win instead of a loss.

The one thing the Steelers have going for them is that they rarely lose at home after a loss. I'd have to check the stats, but it must have been quite awhile since that happened.

I firmly expect your boys to "sack it up" and give my boys their A game.

i believe this game will be a defining game for the 07 steelers. i don't think that it's death if we lose, but a win would say a lot. a clean hardfought loss would be better then what we had last week.

I totally agree this is a key game.

We showed weakness in Arizona and if we do it again, teams will key on them all year. We NEED to be 4-1 going into the bye because, after that, we have a tough road game against the Broncos and three divisional games.

I think is an important game because:
A- You have to win at home. Period.
B- We have to show we can bounce back.
C- You have to go into the bye week with a win.
D- Where it falls in the schedule.
E- It's the Seahawks and they talked a lot of crap after XL.

I want to bury these birds. I want humiliation. I want to dominate in all phases of the game.

THAT is what worries me.

But my expectations were about 6-10 or 7-9 for 2007. Were we going to magically manifest a ProBowl o-line in one preseason with a new staff? Hell no. Maybe not even in two seasons.

I think it will be a very important game for the Steelers because
1. it will show that they can bounce back from a loss last week
2. it will also prove to the Seahawks and their fans that we can win without help from the refs

Wow I think you seriously underated yoour team there! I had them going 10-6 maybe 11-5 at the beginning of the season.
Even as a Seahawks fan I know last season was a fluke for you guys.
Heck, after a Superbowl teams rarely do well the following year anymore, it just takes a lot out of a team to even get there. Injuries and freee agents leaving the following season often hurt too. But the year AFTER, those teams always seem to resurface, because they were that good to begin with.

Which is why I thought that both Pitt and Seattle would have bounce back seasons this year. Not to say they're the best, but they are certainly among the best, and by the end of the season...who knows, we COULD see a ramatch of that Superbowl two years ago...you never know.

But that's exactly what the Steelers did between 03 and 04. The oline was awful in 03, and pretty much the same exact guys came back in 04 as one of the olines in the business.

i agree (although just like last year preseason expectations are right around 12-4)

but as seen last season, 12-4 expectations can easilly lead to 8-8 results. there were 4 games last year that couldve easilly been wins, and those same types of scenarios are there for the steelers this season.

the 3-1 seahawks are probably the most "under the radar" team up to this point. even if they go down 3-2 i expect them to make the playoffs with possibly arizona as a wild card. much like the steelers, the seahawks have gained more talent they have lost since the sb, and have gotten healthier (with no coaching changes other than an upgrade with jim mora and the secondary).

from a non objective fans standpoint, this game may preove to be a bit more entertaining than the sb with fewer mistakes. (dont expect 11 penalties )
