Default THE STEELERS WILL GO INTO CHICAGO AND WIN IF? (POLL INSIDE)

It seems to me that our offensive line only blocks when we're in the shotgun. They don't run block well and don't block well when Ben is under center. And when they DO open up a hole, Willie is dancing!

Plus, against the Titans, the play calling for runs was horrific! We had two 2nd and 1s and 3rd and 1s, and what does Arians call for? Two straight runs up the middle with Wilie? Where was Mendenhall on those plays? Why not let HIM try to get that yard? This Arians dude is still pulling the same crap that he did last year, and I'm sick of it!

*sigh* That being said, Timmons may be out again this week and Troy is out at least a month. What will be the most important factor for beating Chicago this Sunday?

defense.......if you want to talk stats, here's a good one: The Bears are 0-10 without Brian Urlacher in the starting lineup.

Let's hope that's 0-11 after Sunday evening.

After week one I would love to watch the defense settle this game often and early. Looking for 4 sacks and 2 INT's and really rattle the profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltery kid up!

I'm not worried about Chicago (even without Troy). I think we'll struggle with the run, but do better than last Thursday. I also think our Defense is going to make a big noise. Collectively, I anticipate an ass whoopin for those Bears.

You mean, "hey diddle-diddle, first down up the middle." That has been around the Steelers since the 1950s. Not exactly a trick play or keeping the defense off-balance.

We will win because we are simply the better team.
