    Lolley: Who I like, Steelers-Jets

    Who I like, Steelers-Jets

    posted by Dale Lolley
    FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2012


    This game could be all about who is not playing as much as it's about who is on the field.

    For the Jets, All-Pro corner Darrelle Revis, tight end Dustin Keller and outside linebacker Bryan Thomas are out.

    For the Steelers, it appears highly unlikely that Troy Polamalu and James Harrison will play. Both missed practice again Friday and are listed as questionable. But considering they haven't practiced all week, they are likely out as well.

    While not having Polamalu and Harrison will obviously affect the Steelers, it says here that the Jets not having Revis and Keller is a much bigger deal.

    The Jets defense is built to shut down opposing passing games with their three solid cover corners. And Revis is the best in the business.

    Because the Jets don't generate much of a pass rush, they count on those corners covering. That won't happen now.

    And Keller is New York quarterback Mark Sanchez's security blanket. Not having him on the field will be a major blow for New York's offense.

    The Steelers will miss Polamalu and Harrison for sure, but with the Jets defense at much less than full strength, Pittsburgh should have a big advantage, especially playing at home.

    Take the Steelers, 27-17

    If a Steeler fan starts out with "Who I Like" and doesn't say the Steelers, that would sound kinda douchey.

    Jets get 13 pts tops unless their Defense makes plays. Which can happen when Offenses aren't in sync in Sept.
