    It should be anything but business as usual, IMO. I don't understand this, okay, don't panic, I get that, but maybe strap the pads on and get after it a little bit in practice, this team is in a funk, they need something to turn the light bulb on for them. It's almost as if they still think they are playing preseason games and the NFL isn't counting these games in W-L columns.

    The Steelers need to read the quote in my signature from Chuck Noll.

    3.97) Dri Archer - RB

    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB

    Is that 70's Chuck or 80's Chuck?

    I believe the Steelers win this game handily. I dont see them turning it over Sunday. Im sure theres a little embarrasment after the Bears game. They can run on the Vikes. They can throw on the Vikes. I think defensively we can contain AP. I actually think we win somewhat easily. Ill say 23-13

    You would think this would be the case, unfortunately, I believe they will find a way to shoot themselves in the foot. The game will be close and I don't know why, coaching decisions, untimely turnovers, untimely big plays against, Adrian Peterson, the special teams fail this week, penalties, undisciplined, take your pick any one of those could happen or all of those could happen. This team is consistently, inconsistent, similar to last year and I can't imagine it changing this year.

    Of course, you could be right and this could be one of the good games in the inconsistency scheme of things.

    Its hard to disagree with you papilon. Ill say this though. I watched the Browns Vikings game last week. I can honestly say. If we dont beat this Vikings team, who are we gonna beat?

    Bernard ran on this D, Forte ran on this D, AP will likely shred this D for 150.

    I am concerned about AP, too. I do believe the Steelers will stack 8 in the box and try to force Ponder into trying to beat our D with the pass. No defense for turnovers, and that is what most concerns me after the first 3 games.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    Do you realize that we are a 1 point dog to Minnesota? That is a bit troubling if you ask me. Why would we be made a +1 to another 0-3 team?
