    When I first saw this game on the schedule, I basically marked it down as a L because of our history against the Steelers and the fact that it's in Pittsburgh on week 1 is a killer. They've won 10 home openers in a row!

    But the way I see it... We beat them last year when we were an absolute joke. We've gotten better since then and they've gotten worse. Ben had a very good game that night and they still lost.

    If we don't win, I will be severely concerned about the season... this is one of those games that sets the tone for a team. This is as close to a must win this early in the season as you can get. If we lose, we all know we will go 0-2 after Houston and will be facing San Diego (who we haven't beaten since before Miley Cyrus was born, let alone twerking) with our backs against the wall.

    If we win, I will be expecting playoffs. If we lose, I'll be expecting 7-9 or 8-8 at best. If we somehow manage to go 0-3, Munchak needs to be fired immediately and Gregg Williams can take over.

    Hampton no longer being there is going to be huge for our run game. I'd expect about 17 passes from Locker and a ton of yardage on the ground.

    Pitt is going to be hurting against the run this year.

    I much prefer deferring. Put their offense on the hot seat first and see if you can get them to make the first mistake. Also gives you the opportunity to break an even game if you can get the last score of the first half

    ^ Sends a message too.

    Toss them the ball and say "do something".
