i see a lot of fixation on defensive comparisons, obviously because the steelers are better in this department with or without Rivera.

but our offense defiantly cancels that out a bit, our offense is defiantly better than yours. and the strength of our defense is the running defense, your strength is your running game.

its going to be a hard fought game just like last time, i think the chargers are playing much better and with a lot more confidence, so its going to be an even more difficult game for you guys this time around.
Our strength is our running game? Really? Well I mean, Parker did put up decent numbers against your D last time, but our running game has not been our strength this year at all.

Your offense, is good, but like many other top offenses that have faced the Steelers #1 D, it was very weak against us. Rivers had his worst game this season against our D in our house (44.4% 0 TD 2INTs). This isn't a KC, Denver, Oakland or Indy defense you are facing.

I know Charger fans are extremely confident, and that's great, you have good reason to be after beating Indy, but believe me, it's not high powered offenses that scare Steelers fans. The only thing that scares Steelers fans is Ben allowing TO's. That's the only thing that will lose the game for us Sunday, and in a playoff game I don't think Tomlin will hesitate to put Lefty in (or at least I hope he doesn't hesitate).

I don't think many Chargers fans take into consideration that our offense has dealt with all the top defenses already this year, and won most of those games. We have played 7 of the top 10 defenses ( the #2 Ravens twice) and won 5 of those games, 2 of them in landslide victories and 3 in 4th quarter comebacks. They are battle tested and ready to go.

Well come Sunday we shall see how "revamped" the Bolts defense really is. And I guarantee Rivers and company will see a revamped Steelers defense.
