    I think on paper we are the better team but PITT lives off their old reputation a lot. Even if we win this game the media won't be saying "Those Titans sure looked good" it will be "What's wrong with the Steelers?" Just prepare for it.

    You don't just lose James Harrison and Mike Wallace and not take a step backwards. Heck we beat them last year with those two.

    The only thing that worries me is they have a huge home field advantage. When we played there in 2009 to open the season, I remember them saying then that there had never been a field goal made in that stadium of over 50 yards. Not sure if it's happened since then, but it's a hard place to kick. So we better be scoring TDs instead of FGs.

    I'm pretty sure James Harrison was out......I think he was on IR actually.

    For some reason, I feel overly confident about this game.

    That defense has gotten old overnight it seems and their OLine is in even worse shape.

    Need Locker to get off to a good start.

    If we can run the ball this weekend then it will be a very good sign for the rest of the season. The Steelers were the 2nd best defense against the run last year. The Texans the next week were the 7th best against the run. So our OL in going to be tested early.

    Whoever wins the turnover battle will win this game. Our guys shouldn't be intimidated by the crowd because besides Warmack no other rookies are really going to play that much. I fear giving up a big special teams play to them.

    I'm thinking about picking up Felix Jones and starting him in fantasy this week! My reasoning is the fact that teams ran all over us in the pre-season!

    Squeelers are favored by 7. That seems a bit high.

    I'm 50/50 on this game. I'm trying to be optimistic about our season, but our secondary is just garbage still. Big Ben will likely have a field day, they lost Wallace but still have Sanders, Brown, and I like Wheaton out of the slot. We should hold them to under 70 yards rushing - force Big Ben to make plays to win. We have to stop that by sending blitzes like crazy. They're still the Steelers on defense, new faces - but still have Troy, Woodley, Timmons and now have young guys like Jarvis Jones, Ziggy Hoody, and Heyward stepping up.

    I project a slow start to the game, for both teams. Ends up being way to close... but we end up on top.

    We score late and Big Ben has the chance to drive the field in a 2 min drill to win/tie the game. However, we intercept him and he crys. Locker goes for around 230 yards (60% C) w/ 1 TD & 1 INT. CJ2K establishes hisself are a rebirth with 125 yards and 2 TDs. Big Ben throws for 300+, but they're running game is awful.

    I'm hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. Win or lose, this first game will not be an indicator of how our season will end up IMO. By week six we'll know for sure.
