It's quite simple for the Steelers, win the next 2 games and they are in the playoffs and can have a pseudo bye in week 17 to get guys healthy. If they truly are the type of team that plays to their completion this season, then I expect nothing less then 2 wins the next two weeks.

I think the offense plays angry and the defense gets a few takeaways leading to a Steeler victory.

The key to the game will be how the OL protects Ben. The Cowboys have an outstanding pass rush, but a very weak secondary. If Ben has time to throw or can scramble around like he does there should a lot of open receivers down field for the Steelers. Now the question is can our WR's start catching the ball on a more consistent basis?

I think they'll play better and it will be close but I believe they'll drop this one. They are just too banged up and not playing well enough consistently to turn on the switch. Turnovers will hurt them again and the Steeler secondary will continue to struggle without Ike.

This is a bad matchup for the steelers. Not only will the Cowboy's passing game cause serious problems for our secondary... I don't see anyway we can protect Ben in a shoot out. Our running game has disappeared which makes matters worse.

All of this IMO puts our only chances of winning on the shoulders of Mike Tomlin. The next time Mike Tomlin out coaches an opponent in a must win game...it will be the first time. The cowboys are 4-1 in their last 5 games...so they are pretty hot.. I hate to say this but I think we are going to get our teeth kicked in. If I were a betting man I'd say our season will be ending on Sunday. Hopefully I'm wrong, but anyone with an ounce of honesty will agree.


I really have to laugh when I read these comments about us making the playoffs... we just got our butts handed to us against the Chargers... the Browns beat us not all that long ago... these were all games he needed to win. We now get a legit opponent at the worst time. My prediction is this game will be over by halftime.

well, the Browns have drafted big, ULTRA-strong, tough, nasty frontmen. Both on the offensive line and defensive line. The fact is - they're much more dominant "up front" than we are and push us around like little skinny boys. Thats going to be a close game.
As for the Dallas game : word is now out that all you have to do against us is use the passing game and attack the sidelines. We....just...dont'....stop...it. I don't even know if we can. We certainly haven't ajusted to it. I think they have to do something different this week to at least TRY and defend against it. Not sure what the stubborn LeBeau will do, if anything, but i hope something.
Look for Romo to throw these down and 'outs' to receivers all day long as well as trying to hit RB's coming out of the backfield over to the side. All day long.

We just better beat these cowgirls today, especially because I hate seeing Jerry Jones stupid ass shown on tv a dozen times during the game. Hopefully we go into Dallas and end any hopes they had of the playoffs.
