I know we wish the Baltimore game did not count (the Steelers certainly played as if the regular season had not yet started), but isn't this week 4?

Shouldn't this thread be titled "WEEK 4..."? Week 3 was vs the Colts.

If we can't stop the run - then Schaub will be play actioning all day with success.

To me, this is a make or break game for Aaron Smith. If they run all over him - I would recommend starting Ziggy in that position.

Haha...thanks.

I did the same thing last week (titled it week 2), but caught it before anyone else did. I guess my blonde moments are just going to run on a weekly basis now.

Just a bit of trivia. The origin of the phrase "Play Action"

It is short for "Running Play Action, Pass [Play]" - That obviously makes sense as the offense "acts" as if its a run play to try to fool the defense and ends up passing.

I have a feeling we are going to get a very pleasant surprise today. We have only had 1 turnover in 3 games. Today my gut feeling is the damn breaks for our D and we end up with 4 turnovers forced and at least 1 defensive TD.
