I'm not sure the Chargers will be able to run the ball at Heinz field. The only way they will stop Ben is through a good pass rush. We shall see.

I smell a Steelers blowout.

I think the Chargers are in over their heads. Just my opinion. They have had a good run, but they are still a Norv Turner coached 8-8 team.

...and a hearty welcome to Chargers fans.

Also, a 1 point win at home and winning on a last minute field goal isnt anything to brag about. Chargers only had their new D coach for 1 game before at that point.

Anyways, here is to a good game :) , but I honestly think the chargers will be too much for big ben worhtlessberger (haha jk had to do it) to handle!

Chargers: 23
Steelers: 13

cheers!


Well from what i seen lastnight, Rivers basically handed the colts the game with his horrible play. Sproles won that game and Rivers basically lost it. Dont think the steelers wont capitalize on that horrible play by Rivers.

I'm sure this will be a way different game, and the Bolts will give us their best shot. No chance you move the ball on us like you did on Indy last night.

Good luck though!
True you guys did get that last TD, but comeon... that was just from some random desperation play and does not really reflect the skill of the teams. Agreed the Chargers were never in control but the Steelers werent very impressive either, 11-10 was a good indicator of how the two teams played, and like I said the Chargers are playing MUCH better now.

Anyways, itll be a close game for sure and if the Steelers win I will be rooting for them to represent the AFC... not a big fan of the overrated Titans and the Ravens are good but dont really deserve to be in the SB.

So yeah, good luck to you guys too

I can't say I'm "askeerd" of the Bolts, but I don't take them or any other team lightly no matter who they are. Any given Sunday . . .

However, I think the Steelers D is just too ominous for the Bolts O and as long as they get in Patty Cake's face early and often, I think it's gonna be a long day for him.

Lol... last i checked we were 9-8 or 1-0 depending on how u want to look at it and 3-1 with norv in the playoffs. Fact is gates will be healthy and we aren't playing nearly as bad as we were when we met the first game. of course i told colts fans this and they didn't want to hear it but hey its a fact. I look at the game like pittsburgh doesn't have enough offense to score with the Chargers. I don't see Pitt being able to put up more than 17 points this week and the Chargers are likely to put up 20 plus. Big Ben is going to face a whole different pass rush than he saw the first time. We managed to pressure manning last night and our pressure has been nice n solid for a month now. It's not like big ben can't be forced into mistakes. If he is cautious like he was against baltimore then the steelers will be in a deficit before they know it.

:
im sorry, but you are just flat out wrong-

ben 31/41 308 yds 0td/0int
parker 25/115
ward 11/124

rivers 15/26 164 yds 0td/2int
tomlinson 18/57 1td
tomlinson lead all chargers wr's with 3 rec and 45 yds.

you guys had rivera, and how is he gonna help norv prevent the entire shut-down of the passing game? the colts defense may be fast, but the steelers is faster.
