I have an idea- why not try an on-sides kick to start the game off?
Portis is a good all-situation RB - Bettis isnt.

Despite the feel good factor about Jerome being in his home town - logic says he may get a couple of 2Yd TD's but he wont be running for anywhere near 100yards.

I was never as confident as alot of these Steeler fans when we played the Eagles last year.

if the Steelers use that strategy they will get destroyed. Keep doing what got you there. Open it up with Ben, stay aggressive, and the Steelers will win.

Start off with Ben throwing the ball. Establish a lead and when all is safe, bring in the running game and grind them down, along with the clock.

Worked the last four games. Why not stick with it? My biggest fear is Cowher switching back to our "old" ways. I'm not stating we should air it out the whole first half, but I would stick with what we have been doing since the start of the playoffs.

Yeah that will happen

God shouldn't you be in school right now or are you homeschooled
maybe thats why you have no social skills

Yeah- he was nails at the goal line against Indi. You should even be here thanks to him.

I love how there's always some BS reason the Seahawks didn't "really win" every game we played.

How many times do you expect to find yourself on the one yard line anyway?

Oh, and I'd take the 28 touchdown, best Red Zone runnuing back in the game over Bettis- oh wait, we have him!

When Shaun Limp wrist Alexander puts up 13000 yards come talk to me.
Yeah and that was the first fumble since 2004 that Jerome had.
Bring Shaun but putt some extra pads in his helmet so he doesn't get another boo-boo concusion from one hard hit

I wouldn't! And I don't know that anyone here is acting like you didnt really win every game, mostly it is just countering you who is saying your team is god's greatest creation. I think you need to start looking more open minded. I give the Hawks props for what they did and I acknowledge they have a good team. But my goodness, fans like you make me sick. You act like you know soo much about football, say stupid stuff and just act all annoying, so of course when we hear such lame comments as you are making we are going to counter them.

DUDE- I'm a life-long Seahawks fan, if there's one thing I am, it's open minded about their chances of winning. These aren't the Seahaks of 1985-2000 and Yyur team isn't the 1978 Steelers.

Sure, we could easily lose Sunday- but we didn't get here by luck. This years' Hawks are the real deal- I've seen it up close.

Nah, I'm not even bringing the old Steelers into it my man. Like I said before, I give your team props for getting here because... yada yada yada... Anyways, I'm glad you've seen it up close and maybe that is why your comments are too ignorant, maybe you need to back up a bit and look around the league a little more.
