He is an idiot. That is obvious. Chargers could win, but he talks like it is in the books. Steelers have a 12-4 record for a reason. Chargers were 8-8 for a reason. They are very inconsistent. They back doored into the playoffs by beating some very lousy teams at the end. They got lucky that Manning had a bad day and their defense could not stop a midget. Our defense will crush that midget because they stay in their gaps and cover each others' butts. Period. The game will be on Rivers and he will falter in the cold yet again.

That is hilarious Curran actually thinks the Bolts are going to put up 21 points on the Steelers defense. The bye week is only going to help the Steelers defense. They are rested now and no doubt are going to play with a chip on their shoulder. Curran is right about 1 thing though, his blackberry is going to get flooded with emails from Steelers fans.

Everybody in the media is drinking the Charger and Raven Kool Aid right now. Rivers and Flacco are in no way better qbs then Rotherlisberger and Sproles dosent scare me with our defense playing the way they have all season. Our offense will come alive and shut up all the haters this week.

After all, Offense is all that matters right?


As another poster so correctly stated - DEFENSE wins championships. If the Steelers can put 17 points on the board, which I believe they can and will, our D can (and will) hold the Chargers to 10 points or less. I'm THAT confident in our D.

Why do you all feel that San Diego will not be able to put up points ? Comments about Sproles and how he wont be able to run....

Listen........Im the biggest proponent of Steeler football and wish for the better outcome, but you have to understand whats at stake here. Sproles wont run between tackles for 120 yrds against this defense. He doesnt have to. Where Sproles can/will kill this defense is in the short passing game that Rivers will resort to. Again, folks.....Do you really believe that Rivers is gonna think he can have success with straight dropbacks goin vertical against this team ? Hell f'in no...............What you saw from them in the regular season is bound to change from what you see in the postseason offensively AND defensively.

Someone answer this for me: who on this Steeler defense can matchup with Sproles coming out of the backfield in the OPEN FIELD ? Who ? One name people. Its all about strategy and mismatches and this is the glaring mismatch in their favor. Sproles has speed that kills and one missed tackle in the open field and he can take it home.

Now, i dont necessarily agree with everything this writer says--21 pts is a lot. But 17 might be enough to give Norv a victory especially--ESPECIALLY if our offense and Ben struggles. All it takes is a Sproles broken tackle and run for 6. One huge turnover deep in our territory that they somehow convert to a touchdown and a field goal and theres 17. Not a reach. And lets be real here........San Diego knows the pressure of having their backs against the wall and theyve been fighting from a corner for the last 5 weeks. Overconfidence kills. We have to be prepared for anything, cuz we just might see everything.
