The Texans put a lot of points on the board. Passing or running. You have to stop both.

It's a morning of hunches, and I have a hunch we are going to pull this one out. Schaub is a good quarterback but gets rattled easily. I think we will see more blitzing in this game than we have seen. I think Troy will be playing closer to the line this game (no more 30 yards deep BS) to make Schaub nervous and it will succeed. I think we are going to continue having issues running the ball but I think we will get a few turnovers in this game and that will be the difference. 10 points off turnovers. Steelers win a close one. 27-23.

I agree, I was just saying that they don't have a passing game like the pats or packers. I still see it clear cut, either the Steelers we're used to show up and we win by 10 or the Steelers we've seen these last few games shows up and we lose by 10.

Or we could lose by 28.....

I hope the Steelers can manage to stop the running game. Out of all my disappointments in this team this season, and theres been a lot, the poor run defense worries me the most. Lebeau's defense is nothing if they can't stop the run, not even against crappy QBs. Putting a guy like Schaub behind an offense running the ball successfully could cause lots of problems for the Steelers. I hope they can find a solution.

The thing the Texans do well is to set up the pass off the run,and vice versa.
The best way to stop the Texans is to get to Schaub.That will shut down the pass leaving only the run game. If you cant stop that your screwed. Because that opens up the pass again.

Kind of a vicious circle. But it all boils down to rattling Schaub and stopping the run game.

I truly believe that this game will be a fight of two offenses, if you look at the Steelers defense the last two weeks versuses week 1 it has started to make drastic changes for the better. Now many can say that was against two sub-par teams, however when you play good defense that builds bonds and increases confidence. All the reporters are hyping the return of Arian Foster, I believe he will have an average to below average game, there is one thing to bring in a well touted back, but when you are not used to the speed of the game that can limit an offense, almost like it would a rookie. It will all come down to which offense will execute, I have a sneaky feeling that special teams may help the Steelers in this one. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Steelers pull out the trickery in this one.

If Harrison is really back (and he looked it in Indy) and Aaron Smith makes any sort of progress, then I think the game will be close. If we can do anything other than throw long to Wallace we might even win.

There are only two things that can happen:

1. We win.
2. We lose.


So I'm gonna go with "Win".



There.
Wasn't that simple?

Harrison is back, or at least real close to it. Smith hasn't shown any progress and I don't see him doing anything this game. We need Hood in and Timmons and Woodley to show up.

Really? Those are the only two things that can happen? Think very carefully about this. We'll wait for your corrected response.
