Default How possible Moss trade would affect Steelers

If Moss is indeed traded to the Vikings, I think it guarantees us to be in the Superbowl.

Yes, I know many will say we can beat the Patriots even with Moss...true but with him they are never out. He could catch 2 TD and bring them back.

Without Moss, I think we own them. Double Welker and Hernandez and game over.

This is awesome news if it happens. I'm so excited. I'm happy for the Vikings too. They will be formidable with Moss, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson. We might see them in the Superbowl if they can make the playoffs. They have a tough 4 game stretch coming up so they better get him soon.

Revis would get another chance at the Slouch next Monday. lol

I was unaware the Jets and Ravens will not be in the playoffs this year and that only the Steelers and Pats will qualify in the AFC - thanks for sharing

I didn't get the memo either. I should really update my twitter account.

Jets and Ravens don't make me nervous. I think Sanchez will find a way to choke and I think we are a better team than the Ravens. The Jets pass D is ranked 22nd now.

The Patriots always make me a bit nervous. I've gone over Brady's record against the Steelers before. With Moss, Welker and our pass D, we would be very vulnerable.

I like competition. Without any, it would be boring but this increases our odds...big time.

We'd crush and man-handle New England right now WITH or WITHOUT Randy Moss. The Steelers always played well against Moss and a guy like T.O. Big guys who do nothing but stretch the field and are afraid of contact.

The Pats are beatable this year and isn't that threat-ful than they once were some years ago, but they still are a good team and Brady and the offense can still scorch defense's. Losing Moss knocks them down a peg that much more as a team and drastically changes how team will approach N.E and possibly Brady, who's looked okay thus far. Also, Welker benefited from Moss taking the linebackers and safeties with him so Welker with his knee not 100%, could get more balls, but take an even MORE beating in the process and teams could certainly adjust their defense around him without any major threat deep without Moss.

This obviously helps out teams like us, the Chargers, Ravens, Colts, Jets, or even the Texans going for broke in the AFC.

We will be ready for anybody but it's no denying that a Moss-less Pats team sure does knock that team down a peg, which is obviously good news for teams like us, the Jets, Indy, SD, and Balty.
I thought we had a 50/50 chance to beat NE with Moss. I don't know about "Man-Handle". We have a pretty miserable record against Brady. I have documented it before so don't make me bring it out. Give him credit. He seems to understand Lebeau's defense.

Moss is such a special player that if I were the Rooneys, I'd look into offering our 2nd round pick (32nd pick in round 2 is like an early third) for Moss and sign him to a 2 year deal. That would be 2 guaranteed Superbowls. Moss, Wallace and Ward, 3 WR sets...maybe even Miller could step up and play like a winner. Ben would love it.
Imagine Revis, he woul be stuck covering Moss leaving Wallace to Cromartie. KC...consider it...2 guaranteed Superbowls. he would probably step up his play against the Pats too.

If he goes to Minn, great. I was nervous the Ravens were going to acquire him next year to go with Bouldin and Housh.

This is true - it is also true the Jets and Ravens are 2 of the 3 best teams at this time (along with the Steelers) in the AFC - on a neutral field all three would be favored over New England with Moss

I'm not coming down on Tom Brady. I'm coming down on how the window of opportunity is closing for the Patriot's presence of domination in this era.

Sure Brady has had major success against us. You don't have to bring out any document to any Steelers fan about Tom Brady and how he runs that Patriots offense. In fact, it was the Patriots in 2002 that set the tone on how TO beat the Steelers overall 3-4 personal. He uses the dink and dunk to perfection and the underneath and intermediate routes that set up the long ball fits perfectly in the N.E system to beat the Steelers.

With that said, New England is a MAJOR shell of there former selves and things change year to year and the Pats are no exception. I believe the Steelers matchup well against a New England team, who has a very young defense with major holes with no identity, something that puts much more pressure on Brady and that offense than EVER before.

Living in the heart of Massachusetts, I am watching the local Sportsnet channel and am loving all this Moss talk. May he go to the Vikings!!!

Although the possible draft picks for the Pats(Seymour, Moss, etc.) has got me a bit concerned going forth. Welcome back Big Ben!!!
