Yeah. I think Lebeau is gonna just bring heat all day long and leave it up to his secondary to make some big plays.

I would say you are correct in that assumption! Patty Cake is going to be facing pressure from everywhere - he's not going to know where it's coming from most of the time, but in his favor - he has that quick release and the common sense to throw it away when he has defenders in his face.

Your kidding right? Jackson is one of the best big play threats in the league. He avgs 18 yards a catch on 59 catches with 7 touchdowns. Not to mention 1100 yards receiving. Chambers is a beast too and there is also a guy named Antonio Gates to throw to... oh and its not exactly a bad thing to dump it to sproles and gates for a half.... jus sayin.

Remember, their O-line is highly underrated, one of the best in the league if u ask me.
You forget this is Rivers first season back from a completely blown out knee. He has been wearing a brace all year of course he is slower. Still he is shifty in the pocket and has started protecting the ball more now even on a sack. He always tucks it when he rolls now whether he needs to or not. I mean really with our offense if we avoid the sack fumble strip we can convert a 2nd or 3rd n long with our guys. Plus if we don't we have the punter and a very well playing defense that can pin the steelers all day long. Throw out the fact we're 31 pass defense and 25th. We're a better defensee than that and to deny that is to be asanine and ignorant. We are good... very good right now. You guys better bring it this week.

Sounds like your trying to convince yourself more than your trying to convince us. We do have the #1 defense, and to think your boys are gonna move the ball at will is ignorant if you ask me and just about all other Steeler fans.

I dont think Jackson and Chambers will have a big effect because their deep threats and I don't think Rivers will have enough time to throw deep. Gates is a bigger concern.

I just want to see Rivers cry when the games over because he lost.

Chambers isn't really a deep threat now. He's become the possession receiver, while Jackson runs the deep stuff.

Also, Jackson abused Champ Bailey a couple of weeks ago. Matter of fact, Gates abused him too. He was coming off injury, but still... these receivers can make plays.

This is going to be a much more dynamic offense than what was on the field in week 11. Whether it's more effective remains to be seen. But without LT... we're better off. because he was injured and obviously not the same player he used to be.

Sproles is tired and sore right now for sure. But I think Norv will have some wrinkles that will offset the touches that would have gone to LT.

TDs will be at a premium for both teams.

Not to take anything from your guys, cause I think Gates is a beast of a TE. But Bailey has been getting burned for 2 years now at least.

I think you're mistaking Rivers for Jay Cutler. It's ok. We forgive you.



NOT



See the difference?
