I love the steelers, and I pick them this week to win but I think its only because im a steelers fan. The o-line will collapse and big ben will get smashed up even more..... and cj is going to run all over our old rusty defense. I hope not but thats what it looks like, then again in the NFL and in PITT things aren't always that predictable, maybe pitt will pull it off with redman, mendenhall hasnt carried the ball well at all this season, and big ben does seem to be able to play through injuries, harrison gone isnt that big of a deal since he isnt exactly having a great season anyways....

Which one is it, will the Titans and CJ run all over the Steelers or will the Steelers gash the Titans? Choose a side, or do you feel the walls caving in?????

We always stayed on top replacing players before they declined. The last few years we kept resigning 30 something year old players.

Very good point, hopefully after this year the FO will take notice and make some changes. I do think the Steelers have some good potential on the bench, and I really dont think the walls are closing in, kinda early to panic four games into the season.

I have to agree, how do you game plan for youth, especially someone who is coming off the bench. Could this be a game to see the future stars step up and get it done? I think that we have seen youth come up big especially last year, Emmanuel Sanders and especially Antonio Borwn coming up big when we needed them. Youth and fresh legs can take over a game and a team for that matter!

The O-line is a disaster. True. But they did draft Gilbert in the second round. Should have kept Urbik but sometimes they get away. Other than that, WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? There is a solid core of young talent all over the place. We have at least 3 CBs in waiting who could be really good, Hood and Heyward for the D-line (still need a NT) and a great group of WRs and RBs. This team IS NOT IN DECLINE. They look like crap at the moment but the core group that you need for a winning team is in place. Fix the O-line (I know, been saying it for years) and this team is a juggernaut sooner than later. We don't need a monster O-line, just a decent one.

Once again, time to see that youth, now is the time, let thatyouth step-up and win this game. Time to see Hood, Heyward, Hoke (if you wanna call him youth), Redman, so on and so forth. Its time, its time for Woodley and Timmons to earn their paychecks.

I agree the youth on this team needs to step up, bottom line, if they don't we're toast.

I hear they're looking for quality posters over at patriots4ever.com and ravensfever.xxx. You know... quality, winning teams. Better hurry up before all the spots are filled.

P.S. - Just to clarify, this comment was not intended for any of the posters still visible in this thread, but a spammer who has now - thankfully - been banned. Thank you mods.
