I wish the David Garrard of this year was the QB last year. We would have won that game easily. Or our D this year was our D last year. Confused yet. Yeah, I too have bad memories of that game. I went Costco early that morning and bought a 48 inch HD tv for the game and was very excited. Game time I am in my leather chair watching Steelers football in high def, Ben chokes then looks like Johhny Unitas and our D couldn't contain Garrard on a few big runs and big 3rd down conversions. That is one reason I can't understand why we aren't scoring this year. We had beat up offensive line last year and put up a ton of points.

The Steelers simply don't have the same Willie Parker they had last year. That's the problem.

If ben plays like a game manager and doesn't get in the defense's way they'll win

You guys have a competent backup in Leftwich. What's the worry?

To hell with Trent Dilfer. He can die a slow painful death for all I care. Ben will be fine and lead the Steelers to a 20-13 win. The Chargers will get a garbage TD like last time and two field goals this game. Remember the TD Tomlinson scored was set up by a bogus PI call on Ike.

Ben will throw 2 TDs with no INT's and 220 yards.

Sorry but I have a really good feeling about Ben playing on Sunday. He knows everyone and especially the media will be questioning him all week about the concussion and be concerned about him playing on Sunday. The offense will roll as Ben goes.

That's the past. Defense Defense Defense! The O Line WILL be able to give Ben just enough time to make it happen. That being said I do think that the game will keep us nervous start to finish.

Well ladies and gentleman get ready for the post game threads:

If the Steelers win:
Defense wins, in spite of Ben
Ben sucks, FWP sucks, Fire Arians

If the Steelers lose:
Ben should have sit
Lefty should have started
Moore should have been in the game plan more
If only we had (insert MVP QB name here) as our QB

Ben will be fine with his playoff experience. He knows with our D, he just has to play within himself. I would like to see a conservative approach with running, and short passes to Heath and Moore out of backfield, to help get rid of it quick and avoid getting hit while hanging in pocket though. One big hit and he is gone.
I think this is what you'll get. Conservative as hell. I'm sure Tomlin will be adamant about running the ball no matter what. Looking at the season stats... only twice did the steelers run the ball fewer than 25 times. Tomlin believes your defense can set up some easy scores, so he'll put this game on them and let it ride.

I expect the tally to look something like this:
30 rushes
25 passes

Whereas last game it was much more pass heavy, despite the rushing game finding some success.
