Default So time to look ahead

Well after that disappointing loss, it is time to move on. We have an important game in just a few days. Questions for us now:
Can we stop the running game of the Rams? (Hope so)
Can we move the ball effectively? (Should be able to)
If Ike is indeed out, who will replace him? (Biggest question IMO)

We really need someone/something to light a fire under this teams butt, they need to come out wanting this game/division. They will have a nice long rest afterwards to heal up some bumps and bruises and prepare the a must win with the Ravens. (It is must win cause if they lose thursday they need for the playoffs, if they win against the Rams they need it for the division crown).

Go Steelers!

McFadden replaces Ike.

Yes, we should be able to stop the run, but then again, Jackson is pretty studley and our defense is getting killed. So we'll see.

We should be able to put up points against a suspect Rams defense and get to 10 wins.

If Ike Taylor is out, we would have a cornerback set of:

#1 Cornerback: Deshea Townsend
#2 Cornerback: Bryant McFadden

I hope Ike can play, because all McFadden has shown me this season is that he is really good at getting pass interference calls against him.

I think Ben can light up the Rams piss poor secondary with ease, as long as our receivers catch the damn ball.

We "should" be able to pressure the Rams QB as well and maybe we can actually generate some turnovers this week and put our offense in a good position more often.

As a fan I am actually glad its a short week... less time to complain about Sunday and hoping we can get a much needed win Thursday night.
Teams like the Rams and Ravens at home scare me when the have nothing to play for but pride. I really wanted to see the last game vs Ravens as a rest week for some of the injured but it looks as though that will not likely happen.

The game agasint the Ravens wont be a rest game even if we win thurs and the Browns lose on Sunday, because now all of a sudden we got San Diego on our heels playing for the third seed. I dont know about you guys, but I really dont want to have to play Jacksonville again in the wildcard round.

I don't care where we play, who we play, what seed we have or when the game is played, just get into the playoffs.

that's all that matters. Beat the Rams, then play for a 1/2 against a Ravens team that has given up on their coach.

As pathetic as the team has played lately, I still know in my heart that they are better and while many media types have commented on them being a terrible team this year, I know that they are better even with the injuries!!!

I think the biggest problem is that the team hasn't had an identity since the ratbird game.

They need to find themselves like they did during the '05 run and then blast doors off the rams and ratbirds, then head into the playoffs with a whole new deMEANor!

I feel with has less trouble with bigger, slower backs so i don't see Jackson being a problem, but how we have been stopping the run i think anyone could run on us.
Its ether Jags or Browns first round of the playoffs for us and both will be a tough challenge for us, but a good effort can easily give us a win!
