The Chargers are a beat up team. No LT. I think they'll have a tough time in Pitt. What are the weather conditions for this weekend anyway?

And it's not the same Steelers team either.

While the Steelers were blowing through the Pats, Cowboys and Ratbirds in a 3 game stretch late in the year the Bolts got beat by Atlanta then were playing the Raiders and KC at the time..........big deal.

their is one thing i worry about.

1. If ben just has one of those games. Where he can single handidly lose us the game a la the raiders game a year ago. If he commits 3 or more turnovers i dont see us winning the game. The perfect gameplan would be get ahead early and then just run willie till the game is voer

Wonder if guys like Stan Humphries, Natrone Means, Neil O'Donnell, and Barry Foster will be suiting up for this game? Irrelevant. And the loss to them in the '82 playoffs is possibly even more irrelevant.

My glass is half full....I will take a 13-2 record. All the two wins tell me is that they were able to field two strong playoff teams in the past...They cant say that THIS year.

Sorry. But Colon always has that holding call that brings back a good play every game. And Big Ben plays like Tony Romo sometimes. I just don't want him to ruin this defense from being one of the greatest because of stupid plays.

With that said if our offense can hold on to the football and not commit turnovers we will have a great chance of moving on to the AFC championship game.
Yep. It's true the Chargers needed an epic collapse by the gutless, Cutler-led donkeys. But they've focused on getting better every week and the defense is night and day from where they were in week 11.

It's still gonna come down to basics: running the ball, stopping the run, and not turning it over. Both teams will have trouble finding the endzone. But the Steelers are built for this type of grinding game. The Chargers offense won't miss the Tomlinson who played vs. the Steelers in that previous game though.

Many of us have been screaming for Sproles to get more carries all season long. It was clear LT wasn't healthy up until the last couple of weeks. Sucks he won't be able to help us right now. But screw it. At this point, 8-8 doesn't matter... LT doesn't matter... what matters is that the defense continues to improve and if they stop the running game of the Steelers... it's a toss up.

I love this stuff. Whoever wins this game is going to the Superbowl.

Who could ask for anything more? Good luck people.

Sorry to bring out the chair, but words like "always" and "every" are classic overreaction signs that imply Colon should have 40 holding calls per game, which he doesnt. If Colon would do what Kemo sometimes does, in not recognize the delay blitz and let the defender run freely at Ben...........would that be better??

Colon lacks the size to play RT and does the best he can at the position. The coaches should have him inside at guard. Ben sometimes makes mistakes and I dont like it either, but when he takes a chance and throws a 50 yard bomb everybody is on his bandwagon.

We all make mistakes and if you are gonna wrongly categorize guys for always making mistakes, when they only sometimes do.....then we might as well all be Eagles fans and boo Santa Claus.

Don't forget Rodney Harrison and Junior Seau.
