All of my Giants fan friends here have been amp'd up for this game. I hope we kick their butts to the curb.

Eli really played great against that juggernaut Browns defense...... The Giants are the defending champs of course they're not a push over....But how can you root for both teams?....Honestly I can't understand how a person roots for multi teams?

Seems by your post the Steelers have no chance in this game which I find absurd....The game is in Pittsburgh and the Steelers are a good team in their own right with their offense coming to life in recent weeks....Its going to be a good game on Sunday and may the best team win....

Name ONE Steelers "homer" who has said that the Giants are pushovers.

I'll be waiting.

Oh BTW, I might also add that Eli has had big games against such defensive powerhouses as the Seattle Seahawks and the San Fran 49ers. So if you're going to discount Ben for the teams he's played, then you have to discount Eli too. Besides, Ben BEAT the Browns in Cleveland, while Eli and the Giants did not, and stunk up the joint in the process.

I personally think if the Steelers play like they did today, the will lose to the Giants. Being up 17-10 over the Bungles after 3 quarters isnt exactly something to be proud of.

Luckily, the Giants havent really beaten anybody this season, but maybe the Redskins and I think their D-line is showing the loss of Osi and Strahan. Eli is looking more like the scared kid he was at this time last year and Plexiglass is still a locker room distraction.

The only guy that scares me on the Giants is Brandon Jacobs. Need to keep him from having a big day and the Steelers should win.

After watching the G Men play a couple times this year I'm not nearly as worried about this game as I was when the schedule came out.

Giants pass rush isn't even close to last years due to the injuries and Strahan retiring. Manning still looks like he's just as confused as Coughlin most of the time.

Anyone else see Plex and Coughlin going at it today? A sign of things to come for the G-Men IMO.

Our defense is better then theirs, our QB is better, heck I believe Moore is a better RB.

The game will henge on how well we can block up front.

The Defending Super Bowl Champions are coming to Pittsburgh. It's awesome.

The Steelers will give the Giants their best shot. It's the weaker teams that worry me when the Steelers play them.

I agree, although I love watching Jacobs. He is a beast.

Moore is not better than Jacobs. Let's be realistic here. I do agree that our QB and D are better, though.
