This is nothing new. The sky was falling back in 2002 (actually, it was, cuz the Steeler D could stop no one in the passing game that year) when Rich Gannon shredded the vaunted steeler D for over 400 yards.
I'm very very worried about my Jets with this upcoming game vs. the Steelers. Although the game you guys played vs. the Broncos was very entertaining, looking at two HOF quarterbacks going at it, I was SORELY hoping you guys would win the game. Playing the Steelers: On the road + home opener + getting players back (Clark, Harrison, Mendenhall?) + Revis may not be 100%, + knowing the Steelers haven't gone 0-2 since 2002 = Me being more frightened than Scooby-Doo confronted with the episode's villain. Still, I want the win...although I don't expect it. Hope it's an exciting game with no one getting hurt.
Did it occur to anyone that perhaps Denver playing in the same division as KC and Haley bringing his offense from KC actually helped the Donks in their defensive gameplan?
We had a 2nd yr CB, a replacement safety, a new defensive captain, a new nickel back, a missing Pro Bowl LB all in the first game of the season. My, our expectations are very high....
The fact is this...we are a good team who played a C+ game when we needed to bring at least an A- to win in a hostile enviroment. Lets call it what it is rather than losing our minds. If we go 0-6, then lets revisit all of this...and maybe I'll agree with all the pessimissm. Right now, I see nothing to make me think the Steelers won't make the playoffs...yet again.
Welcome to the board...always like it when we get knowledgeable fans from opposing teams visiting our forum (except for the internet tough guys who just come to stir things up).
