    Looks like Polamalu and Brown are playing

    I simply ask this: Will it make any difference?

    Not if Ben isn't in. We might be able to win a few against the Cleveland or Dallas' of the world without him, but not Baltimore.

    Agree. We are not beating the Ravens without Ben at QB. I'm afraid that we are actually going to get blown out this Sunday.

    We will be 6-6 after this weekend and IMO will have to run the table to make the play offs.

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Ben is the key to the Steelers, but they have been successful with him on the bench before and using Dixon and Batch. Batch is going to be fine this weekend; he had to shake off some rust. The defense completely dominated the Ravens offense and I expect more of the same. If the offense doesn't give the Ravens a short field Flacco and company will only score between 13 and 17 points.

    There isn't going to be a blowout and the Steelers will have a chance to win this game, IMO. Have some faith, they have played without Ben before and with a subpar offensive line.

    Agree here Pappy. Ravens are favored by 8. I would go Steelers if betting.

    Sounds like another ugly game. What a shame. The Ravens have been ripe for the take-down in the division. Their defense is sub-par and their offense has trouble with our D. But without Ben, it's going to be a real struggle to score many points. Here's hoping that Haley has a few tricks up his sleeve.

    Yea, I'd take the Steelers +8, what's different between this week and two weeks ago? Batch instead of Lefty, that's it fir the most part. The score was 13-10; I don't know what the Vegas line was on that game. I know it moved quite a bit once Vegas realized Ben wasn't playing.

    I just don't see a blowout.

    Polamalu especially could make a difference. He is one of the players most likely to be able to create a turnover and potentially a score for the defense, which might be needed to win this game.

    The World's Longest Calf Injury is going to end this week?

    Saw today on another site that the injury was actually a TEAR of the calf muscle, not just a STRAIN as had earlier been reported. Don't know if anyone else on this board has ever suffered a muscle tear, but they can take a frustratingly long time to heal. Here's hoping that Troy is, indeed, fully healed.
