Default The reason I think we will win

Mark Sanchez isn't that accurate. He has a career completion percentage of 53-54pct (terrible by NFL standards) and has more interceptions than TDS for his career. Last game, they got some cheap points and the Steelers allowed them to run on them. I expect we will stop the run this game and put them in obvious pass situations. An inaccurate passer vs a good pressure D in obvious passing downs, we should have the upper hand. We will stop the run this week....

Honestly, if we can avoid giving them "cheap points" (short fields + special teams Tds, and defensive Tds), I love our chances.

I agree! Sometimes he misses so bad, I'm wondering who the heck he is throwing to. If we stop the run early, I think our D will start rolling...

I think people are giving this kid WAY too much credit. Fact of the matter is, is that he is still very much protected by his coaching staff and is still only in his second year in the league. He threw a plethora of INT'S last season, and the Jets needed to beat two teams that layed down for them last season to enter the post-season.

Regardless of what happened, he's NEVER seen a defense like the Steelers until now. That earlier game in December and the defense we ran was vanilla due to the fact that that was Troy's first game out and how we were without other components as well, let alone in an early 7-0 slum.

Sanchez will be in a hostile environment, one that makes opponents cry and the Steelers will go wild off of the home crowd. We will be roaming like MF'ers and confuse the shit out of him. If we can make them one dimensional, there's no way they walk out of here with a W. NO WAY.

RENEGADE BABY!

He is capable of making the big play though, like when he got away from pressure and made that pass down field to Edwards. Can't take that for granted.

your stats of sanchez are a bit skewed, keep in mind he was a rookie last year. not saying hes great or anything, but he does manage a game and does his best to not lose games for his team

He is 27 in rating, 29th in completion percentage, 26 in YPP

I can't think of too many QBs I'd rather face... Just saying! The running game is carrying him. That won't happen Sunday!

I think Sanchez is a good to great qb and will bring his A game..........


but the reason why I think we'll(Steelers) win.....is because we're a team in every sense of the word

The Steelers have been put together the way its supposed to be done.....through hard work, dedication, and grit

The Jets are made for Goodell/media/ new breed Fantasy football fans.......High Priced Free agents and big talk with so called "Star Power".................that the media can't wait to get headlines from....

The Jets are a great football team.....but it takes more then talent to go the distance.....people are going to realize this when we succeed where those other so called "best teams" failed

Sorry, but did you just say Sanchez is good to great? Sanchez needs a running game to succeed. If the Steelers shut down LT/Shonn... Sanchez is ordinary.
