Default Does the weather scare you?

With this new Steelers offense which has obviously become pass oriented, I get scared when I think about the only game where the weather has been bad so far this year.

Look at the Bears game where it was raining and there were atleast 5 passes that were dropped and most likely cost the Steelers the game.

Reason I bring this up now is I hear this Sunday's game is forecasting rain..


So once the weather starts getting consistently worse heading into the winter months, do you think the Steelers need to adapt or can they keep the same game plan going forward?

We did just fine in the snow against San Diego in the playoffs last year.

Bears/Cinci losses I am chocking up to bad luck. We have won three straight.

Also, against the Bears and Bengals we didn't look like we could run the ball. Now it looks like we can with Mendenhall and Moore, and sprinkling in a little bit of Willie Parker.

After we destroyed the Pats last season on their own turf in the middle of a rainstorm, bad weather no longer concerns me.

I chalk the Chicago loss up to bad luck and the lack of both a solid running game and a good pass defense.

Ben didn't wear a glove in the Bears game and maybe that was the reason some of his passes were off target that game. I'm not worried at all about the weather. Most of the vets on this team are use to playing in poor weather by now.

I'd be more worried about the field being chewed up into a cow pasture after Pitt plays it homecoming game in the rain on Sat.

We have shown this year that we can in fact run the ball with solid blocking. So no, doesn't concern me.
