How do Nation! It's time for our STEELERS to do battle again! Today we battle the current WORLD CHAMPIONS New York Giants!! We're going to be one ailing team when we take the field on both sides of the ball. Does anyone have the for sure list of who's playing and who's not, from what I understand, FWP is out, SH is out, Marvell is out, who are we missing on D now? Is Aaron going to play? I understand his son had an operation and he originally was not going to show up. Lets hope we have a good game and no major injuries occur. Lets have a good clean game. :)

Thanks for starting Rickt011.

I heard Plexiglass is being benched by Coughlin for new discipline problems. He's not deactivated, so I guess we'll probably have to deal with him.

Anyone know, is Big Snack in for sure? Steelers.com website: Orpheus Roye and Dennis Dixon are deactivated, along with SAH, FWP, BMac, and Marvel Smith. No official word on Aaron Smith.

Let's GO!!!

Hope Smitty is active. If he is, then there's always a chance he'll play.

Won't be around to participate today but I think the Steelers have a big game despite all the uncertainty of the past week.

After another disappointing loss from LaMar Woodley's former team (but at least OSU lost, hahaha) I definitely would be happy with a Steelers win today. A guy I work with is from NYC and a big Giants fan. Would love to make a few comments to him tomorrow morning after Manning gets planted into the grass a few times. :tt2

Atlanta just got screwed. That wasn't a muffed punt. They have no time outs and can't challenge.

26 yard FG is good..STEELERS 7 Giants 3

Scarletfire1970
10-26-2008, 04:36 PM
Hopefully Plax doesn't come into the game. Our secondary is challenged enough. Our pass rush isn't getting there. Quick dink and dunks could kill us today. Hopefully Eli isn't as effective as Tom Brady at dinking and dunking.

Steel Life
10-26-2008, 04:37 PM
Seems like NYG think the way to beat us is with the short routes...seems to be working a bit - it keeps our guys from getting to Eli in time. Winning this game will all depend on our ability to pursue & tackle after the catch.

At the end of the day, with this kind of game plan, Eli might have the better percentage...the question is whether he will make the game changing plays that Ben typically does.

Take nothing away from the Giant who picked it, he laid out to get it, it was no easy task. He almost trapped it too, but then fumbled and they recovered. We can't afford to make these mistakes..

Flasteel
10-26-2008, 04:52 PM
Well we are winning after one quarter but the Giants have the momentum and have moved the ball at will since their first possession. The good news is that we've only stopped ourselves offensively and I do expect our defense to eventually stiffen...we'll see.

because he was running in one direction and the ball went to the OTHER... if he keeps running, he misses it by 5 yards... when he realized how badly it was going to miss him, he stopped.

Ok, our guys just dont want to win today, that's all.
I was beginning to think Tomlin was all that, but this nonsense of coming out flat week after week, season after season is beginning to stink.
We came out flat against the bungles. We stank it up against the Eagles. And now this. And from what I can see Jacksonville was overrated.

Seems to me we only play well against weaklings. Its either pathetic talent or just bad coaching..

We're lucky to only be down two and that's a complete credit to our red zone defense. We are stagnating offensively and need to mix it up with some no-huddle. Points here to take the lead before the half and getting the ball first would be huge.

Ben has to step up!

Ben really is stinking it up today.
I suspect he's also making the calls. This is his first year being in charge of making calls and he isn't yet very good at it. That accounts for some of the problems. But overall, the two sacks, the ints, he's looking very like Eli circa 2005...

He better step it up.

I just can't get past that play call on third down. You spread them out and draw. Don't risk the sack, don't drop your QB straight back. We could have had the lead after a pretty bad first half and the coaches or Ben completely blew it. Horrible. We've got 30 minutes to turn it around on offense and I think we have to up the tempo and go no-huddle out of the gun.

Scarletfire1970

Steel Life
10-26-2008, 05:57 PM
Well...thank god that half is over.

All things considered, we're still in it with a chance to win. Despite the INTs, bad special teams resulting in great field position for the Giants, the defense has kept the team in the game. For some reason we have been a second-half team, let's hope that is the case. But it starts with better offense & Ben & Arians need to get it together. I'll give the line a pass on the first sack as that was coverage sack & seemed like Ben tripped over the guy. But the second one was a blown assignment by Max & the protection schemes will need to be adjusted to avoid the loss. But Moore is running reasonably well, especially up the middle - so we don't have to go pass happy. I think the WRs are out of consideration for the most part, so Heath needs to be a target. That said, there are opportunities to go deep if they can pull Nate's ear out of his skull & Sweed can show something.

This game is winnable - LET'S GO STEELERS!!! :tt2
