The Steelers have typically been able to run on the Chargers and I don't see Willie's turf toe affecting that as I feel Mendy will be able to do the job if need be. Running against the Chargers has never been "hard" running...usually the holes are big enough that a back simply has to hit them. Getting the extra yards is the challenge and that's where Willie has been successful against the Bolts...I'm confident Mendy can do the same.

Offensively they pose a pretty serious threat but I suspect our two weeks in a row of "get an early lead and sit on it" strategy has worn thin with the head man AND with the players. I just don't see that happening this game offensively or defensively.

We will score points but we'll also allow points...fortunately we'll score more though!

I said I thought this was one where we'd have to put up 25+ to win. We will. It will be tied going into the 4th and we win with a late drive for a TD because we're forced to keep the foot on the gas.

Steelers - 30
Chargers - 23

(and don't discount the effect the planet steelers mojo will have on the game)

Yes Sir! :tt2

Each team scores once per quarter. But we are able to score TD's each time, while they settle for FG's half the time. 28-20.

I haven't made a prediction for the last two weeks and we've lost. With that in mind...

Steelers - 23
Bolts - 13

last week I had us slicing and dicing the bengals ... so I am staying out of the prediction business this week.

I don't have a very good feeling about this game, which is odd, because I haven't been ready to jump off a bridge yet following either loss, there were plenty of positives to take out of both . . . I keep waiting for this team to wake up, much like the feeling I had in 2006. That's what scares me.

But I ain't picking against the Steelers. And once again, we ain't going to bed or relaxing until close to midnight, as seems to be the case with very Steelers late game.

The most games we can play in a season is 19.

I just hope that if we're up by less than a TD with less than 5 mins to go, we go Madden Football style and let them score (like we did in the SB).

I have more confidence in the O (read Ben) leading a game winning drive than I do in our defence holding on the last drive (how thinks have changed from the Kordell era).

What the heck! So its all your fault.... :stirpot

No analysis here, they just need to get it done. 23-20 Steelers.

I'm expecting a high scoring game. The Chargers will put up points without Troy in there,
but we'll have no problem keeping pace because, without a lead, Arians won't shut down
the offense. Once again, it will be a close one.

Steelers 31
Chargers 28

Last minute drive by Ben, plus a game winning field goal by Reed.

to go 1-3 makes the season that much more difficult:

Is it wrong not to be worried about this game? Even last weeks loss didn't bother me much. We correct a few things and walk off winners.

I am surprised. He has the game within 8 points instead of being a blowout. :wink:

This game scares me. I just don't have a good feeling about it at all.

I will still predict a Steelers victory though.

I feel better about this game than last week. Maybe they went into Cinci thinking that they gave the game away in Chicago. Then they start out on fire against the Bungles and we know what happened after that. I don't see them falling short this time around.

Steelers 34
Bolts 24 (with 7 coming late)

Reverse your reverse to remove the curse! :P

Seriously, I see the Steelers rebounding big time from the most recent loss. It is primetime and we are at home. I am feeling a big Steelers win.

Steelers: 31
Chargers: 17
