Well here we go again for another exciting season! Time to once again predict what you think our boys will do on the field of play. I'll be bringing you this thread all season long and into the playoffs!

Last time we met the Titans were able to capitalize on 4 Steelers turnovers to the tune of 21 points. So although our offense moved the ball (Ben passed for 329 yards and we had 23 first downs to their 16) we just werenít able to protect the ball and score. The defense looked quite generic (I contend that was because the Steelers anticipated seeing the Titans in the playoffs and didnít want to give the Titans too much on film) and still held Chris Johnson to only 69 yards rushing. That same generic defense allowed Collins to pass for 215 yards and one TD.

I think that changes in this meeting. You know damn well the emphasis will be ball security so as not to have a repeat of week 16. As a result the Titans wonít be the beneficiary of 4 TOs this time and it will be a much different game as a result. The Titans get the 10 points they scored without the TOs (one was an 83 yard pick 6) and the Steelers get the 14 they scored along with 10 more on drives that ended in TOs last meeting.

So the final score will be Steelers 24 Ė Titans 10. This game sets the tone for the í09 season and the Steelers send the Titans home whimpering and with multiple welts from Terrible Towel snaps to the ass!

The quest for 7 begins: :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2

I actually think we will struggle in this game. Good team. Great running game with great OL. Tough defense.

For whatever reason we struggle against Titans. I see a Titans victory.

24-7 Steelers

I expect this team to come out fired up and playing with a purpose. Plus the Terrible Towel will get its revenge!!! It will be a good start to the season!!!

I think Ben will have to lead us on a last minute drive in order to pull out a victory. Maybe not a TD drive, but a Jeff Reed FG drive, and it will be up to Jeff to get the win.

I'm looking at CJ rushing for over 100 yards against our great D, and I think this will be the story line going into the 2nd week of the season. Our D giving up a lot on the ground.

This is purely a guess on my part, however.

24-23 Steelers

Steelers 35, Titties 14

Ben has a banner day like he had stat-wise against the Titties last year...w/o the turnovers.

S'Tonio has two TD catches.

No pick 6s, PRs or KRs for 6...but watch for us to come close one or more times.

T3 gets its revenge...LDW blows out his ACL as payback for messin with the T3 karma!

Stairway To 7, Bay-Bee!!!

I appreciate your stab at impartiality O, but I humbly disagree.

The Black-n-Gold will be jacked for the home opener and take it to the Titans 20-10.

24-13 us.

I also predict that Redman will be on the active squad at some point this season.

With the nature of RBs, I'm not inclined to bet against that prediction...the Redder, the Better!

Last season's game against the Titans involved a physically and mentally exhausted Steelers team, imo. They had just played a string of about a half dozen very tough and close games.

We aren't going to see that on Thursday.

Add to that, the marked improvement on punts and returns.

If Ben doesn't give the rock away... like last game.

20-17, Black And Gold are victors in a close one. Our running game dominates surprisingly against their solid defense.

33-7 Steelers win

Logan has a punt and kickoff return.

Troy has an INT return for a TD.

Sweed gets his first TD.

And James Harrison and Lamar Woodley sandwich Collins in the endzone for a safety.

17-14 Steelers. Tight one because we try and set the tone with the run game against a very good run D and force the run too much leaving Ben 3rd & long all day long.

I predict Willie Parker gets some sort of leg injury (hammy, knee, ankle) and will be in and out of the lineup all season long. Our run game from game 2 on will depend on Mendenhall and Moore with Parker making it off the injured list here and there.

Logan and Sepulveda will certainly make it a whole different ballgame this time around.

i hope like hell it doesn't happen because i live in knoxville and have talked alot of **** in the offseason, but i have this one going into OT:

oilers-16
stillers-13

run defense has me a little concerned from watching the pre-season games. may take a week to get on the same page. jeff fisher always has those guys ready to play the steelers. i hate the son of a bitch, but i gotta respect him. as always TO's will decide this matchup.

In a strange Deja Vu kind of game the Steelers defeat the Titans 11-10 in only the second game in NFL history to go final with that score. :P

Remember, the Steelers don't care about style points...says the overpaid janitor. :tt2

I'll go with 21-20 Steelers.....special teams wins this one late. I don't have much hope that our run game will thrive in this one. It's gotta be Ben and ST.

My momma told me if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all.

Wake up call for the Steelers that will serve them well the rest of the season.

Is it bad if nothing gets me as emotional as this video:

If I were working for the Steelers (and I may be someday), I would play this before every game. They should certainly play it tonight, it'd make the place erupt. 24-13 Steelers.

Yes sir!

:tt2



(just as a reminder, Yes sir! = bump) :D


So what is 'bump' supposed to equal?

I pick the Steelers (like I will every game this season) to win, and it wont be close.

24-10 with a garbage TD at the end for the Titans like SteelSun7 said. Steelers have continuity from last year and will start the season strong.
