Default The Game Will Be Won In The Trenches

Pittsburgh's O-line has struggled to protect Ben Roethlisberger this season, giving up the sixth-most sacks in the league.

This could be a prime opportunity for the Giants' pass rush to make some noise, like it did last week with six sacks against the 49ers, whose offensive line had given up a league-high number of sacks entering the game.

I know Pitt has a very good D, but they are banged up...

The Giants line is as solid as they come...

It should be fun.

Giants haven't faced a pass rush or a defense as good the Steelers' yet. Yep, it should be fun.

The Giants line has been together a long time & does very well against the pass rush.

They face Philly, Dallas & the Skins twice a year...

They're also paving the way for the best rudhing attack in the league, just like last year...

The line is the least of my worries.

Are Philly, Dallas and the Skins leading the league in sacks? Yeah, didn't think so....

No they're not...

My point was that the Giants have a solid O-Line that faces pretty good pash rushes all the time...

I'm sure Pitt will get theirs, just like the Giants, #2 in the league in sacks

Fair enough - it's definitely the game of the week on paper, at least.

Thats why they play the game. You know all week long the Steelers will be working on the no huddle which will tire out the D line of the Giants, and spread them out on three and four wide receiver sets.

The past few weeks, the quick hit slant routes have hurt the Giants...

The same goes for Eli & Co. They work much better in the hurry-up...

Looking forward to Sunday.
