Default Steelers/Eagles predictions.

Finally, the first game of the season where I do not take much confidence in. Steelers play at Filthadelphia next weekend. The Eagles have a lot of features that make them a dangerous team. Mcnabb is mobile and can play Houdini much like Ben, Westbrook is a cutback runner, and the Defense, while porous, has a tendency to blitz heavily. Which doesn't bode well for the O-Line.

I really see no apparent advantage Pittsburgh has right now, unless I'm missing something. This one is a toss up. This is a winnable game, but the Steelers could easily lose this one. If we see more of the same in Cleveland and play conservative/vanilla, we will lose.

I say Steelers win a close one in 34-30 scoring type of game.

I am not sure what you're complaining about the play in Cleveland for. IT was a well-called game for the conditions. I want EXACTLY what we showed in Cleveland. Heart, tenacity, and a game that is called appropriate to the conditions.

The ONLY thing I want to see differently is our players CATCHING the ball on kickoffs and PR's.

I agree with Preacher. That said, I'll call 27-24 for this one.

I don't think our defense will allow more than 30, though we might allow more yards on the ground if the line hasn't adjusted to no Keisel.

Phila blitzes alot, but that makes them vulnerable over the middle, and anything to the TE. Heath & Spaeth should have big days. Also watch for FWP to get through the blitz and into the secondary. He could have another solid game as well! That would then cause an adjustment that would open up for a big play to Santonio.

With all that said, I see 28-17 Steelers. FWP over a C-note with two TD's.

I am going to say 24 to 17 we should win this one and should be able to move the ball.

I just caught the second half of MNF, but one thing that is definitely noticeable is that we are going to have to slow them down early, and break their spirit. We win 30-27

Dallas' defense is a joke. The only reason the Browns only scored 7 is because they suck. Eagles finally see a real defense. Mcnabb will be pressing the issue because the fans will be booing him for mucking up last nights game(Westbrook fumble was his fault). 21-10 Steelers.

I think our defense will be the difference we win 24-10. Ben will play well and, fwp wi rush for 138.

I'm a little hesitant to pick the Steelers in this one, as the Eagles have a pretty potent offense this year and other than that fumble, McNabb looks as good as he's ever looked thus far. Add Brian Westbrook to the mix who is the best all purpose back in the league imho. I wasn't that impressed with the Eagles D - there are some gaping holes in their secondary and I think if the Steelers can torch them early with a couple of TD's, the game is ours. Our OL has played pretty well 2 games into the season and I hope they continue to do so. Our D has to blitz more, though, and get to McNabb early and often to throw him off his game.

I'm going to be a homer here and pick the Steelers 31-24.

I wasn't impressed with either Philly or Dallas last night. IMO, the fireworks on offense are more of an indication that neither team can play defense. For all the talk of the NFC East being the toughest division, I can't help but wonder if they meant toughest division in Fantasy Football.

Steelers 31 Eagles 17
