Thread: Hope the Steeler Players and Coaches were watching NFL opening game last night.

  1. #1

    Hope the Steeler Players and Coaches were watching NFL opening game last night.

    Hope they were paying attention real good...

    Because, they will need to score touchdowns and put more points up then what
    they did last season. They cannot just kick field goals often ...they need to play aggressive, mix the plays up, etc....
    Element of surprise not like this lame duck response to Syria........

    They will need to show up Sunday and play to win.......
    They better not have this play safe attitude or thy will be eaten alive.....

    Especially since Lebeau's scheme woulda probably given up 10 passing TDs

    The Ravens Defense is Garbage and got winded in their first whole game in Denver. Similar thing happened last year on opening night to us but we didn't give up 49pts.
    Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go...
    Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go...

    Syria? Wow.. nice.

    Anyway... there is no reason to make a case for scoring a ton of points due to a Denver blow out at home vs a team who shocked them in the playoffs last year.

    I can't speak for Sword, and if he wants to reply to this post to correct me then so be it. I think what he might be implying is that scoring points is more important than ball control or TOP.

    I believe the Broncos to be the best team in football. Opening in Denver is tough. Not sure the Steelers would have faired any better.

    A loss is a loss and we lost last season same way the Ravens did. Couldn't get to the QB!
    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!

    I think we would have...

    this is a Raven team that won the SB and lost Ray Ray, Ed Reed and Boldin...

    I don't think this team is all that great. It looks like the typical Manning type of team with a slightly better D.

    It tells me somebody better play some defense. The Steelers don't have a great record when Ben throws a ton of passes. At one point he was 51-9 when he threw 30 or less passes and 18-22 when he threw more than 30 pass. So if anybody thinks Ben is going to outscore anybody by throwing a ton they better rethink that. That means TOP and running is very important to the Steelers.
