The Dallas game is the key. Seattle has a very good OL but if they can't figure out what happen against the Cowboys they won't be able to beat the Steelers 3-4.

Seattle had only 72 yards rushing on 22 carries against Dallas. They were only 3 for 13 on third downs.

Further, Seattle lost 3 games this year. In each one of them Alexander was under 100 yards.

The Cards and Titans do not play a 3-4.

The Texans, Cowboys and 49ers do. Thats 4 games.
The Texans have zero talent on defense (apologies to Dunta).
And the 49ers and Cowboys just switched and have players who dont know the 3-4 beyond one season.

There really was nothing to compare to Pitts defense. (or SDs or NEs)

Do you think that Pitt has played a comparable offense?

Good question. Is there a thread on it? Maybe we should start one.

A: Maybe, maybe not. But I know that the Colts and Bengals are explosive and very balanced.
They may use more long and intermediate routes. But both have great QB, RBs, OLines. Only Indy has a real TE though. (expect Cincy to draft one) Both play on artificial turf. All are top 4 scoring teams.

As far as a WCO offense... not sure. But it is very plentiful around the NFL.

Would have to take a look at it.

I would say the battle between Pitts defense and Seattle's offense is the Steelers to lose.

pitt played the eagles with t.o. and donovan last year and destroyed them allowing only 3 points. the steelers defense now is the same but better, wiser, more experienced , and more opened up.

I think it is going to be a pretty awsome game. I looked up common opponents and from my analysis it means absolutely nothing.

Both teams lost to Jacksonville
Both team beat the Texans although Seattle Murdered them while Pitt just mugged them.
Both teams beat the Titans, although Pit Killed them.
Seattle beat Indy, but Indy was playing thier JV squad. Pitt lost but beat them when it counted.
Pitt Beat Green Bay, Seattle Lost with thier JV Squad.

Well that was a giant waste of time.

This is true but the 04 Eagles and 05 Seahawks run completely different offenses. They are not even in the same ballpark, maybe not even in the same sport.

Huh? Andy Reid is just as big a WCO guy as Holmgren is. They all came up through the same ranks and run the same system. The joke about the Eagles never running the ball is a misnomer, since, when healthy, Westbrook is the most proficient receiving RB in the league, and can run the ball effectively as well.

Again, the tenets of the WCO are that the short pass and run are interchangable. The big differences I see between Eagles '04 and Seahawks '05 is that the Eagles had the premier deep threat at WR and the Seahawks now have the premier RB.
