[QUOTE=RuthlessBurgher;523519You can't predict a shutout...haven't you heard that LeBeau is a senile old fool who should have been put out to pasture years ago? ;)[/QUOTE]
I've heard that I just don't belive it:rolleyes:
I haven't had a good feeling about this year's team since the pre-season. The injury problems continue to persist. Playing without Harrison and Polamalu is never good. Their replacements aren't "above the line" as Mike Tomlin likes to say. Woodley, Worilds and Carter made very few plays against the Broncos.
DeCastro, Mendenhall and the offensive line in general aren't immune either. Ben was running for his life yet again and sacked 2 times in meaningful time and pressured many others. He's good, but Ben will not be able to overcome these injuries on the defense and offense.
Debbie Downer here:
The Jets not having Revis and having the worst rush D in the league does not bode well for them.
I will say that the Steelers need to give Dwyer more touches than Red. Dewey looked much more determined on his carries last week. Ben also needs to open up the short game a little more and the RZ O needs 6 points instead of 3 every time down. Use Heath to max advantage inside the Jets 20.
Steelers must not go 0-2 with a trip to Oakland looming. Ben needs to be flawless vs. a less-than-potent Jets D and DLB's D must be stout vs. Sanchez and create opportunities to place the ball in Ben's hands.
Final score: Steelers 38, Jets 23
