    OPPOSING VIEWS: Mood in Pittsburgh is Pretty Grim

    Ian Logue

    Following their loss to the Dolphins on Sunday, the mood from Pittsburgh was mostly doom and gloom as they dropped a tough game against what had been a 1-4 Dolphins team.

    Mike Tomlin has never impressed me as a head coach. He seems to be a guy who just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    Without Big Ben, they have a right to be gloomy. That offense was looking pretty good before.

    With Toothlessburger out for a few weeks, at least their cheerleaders probably feel less vulnerable.

    Here's the thing: Antonio Brown is currently #1 in the entire NFL in targets.

    Greedy boy, eh? :rolleyes:

    Take away Bell and force Jones to beat you with his arm. Sounds simple enough.

    I do not think they'll just roll over though. They'll attempt to utilize Bell on screens and handoffs, with the hope that they can hit a big play or two to Brown.

    I actually think Tomlin is a decent coach, crippled by their owner and GM and he ends up either a goat or hero on Sunday depending on the day Haley's having. If Haley's been thinking his office was bugged, they kill it. He get's comfy, they suck.

    Then there's the D. Between Butler and Peezy, they can't tote LeBeau's jock, and their choice of outside linebacker's have been killing them. Pittsburgh's defense has been absolutely awful for several years, and its the reason they've only made the playoffs a handful of times while having an all pro QB in the rapist during that span.

    NE wins this game big this week even if by some miracle the rapist plays.


    That said...

    F*ck Pittsburgh and their petulant fans. They are literally the worst. Between the piss colored flags and the majority of them clinging on to the dropped Franco ball, roid filled ******** of the 70's, I can't wait to see another Patriots beatdown of them on their own damn field...AGAIN...on Sunday.

    F******cccckkkk Pittsburgh.

    Just a cautionary note here. When the Pats were getting ready to play the Cardinals on JG's first start, the mood on this board wasn't a whole lot better. It was safe to say most of us were hoping we could keep it competitive throughout the game, but few honestly expected a win, let alone watch a game the pats controlled and would have dominated except for 2 TO's.....and THAT was in AZ.

    So here we have a situation where Jones has had several starts and some wins. He has the advantage of a very good home field advantage, and some of the best offensive skill players in the league will be available to him. The Steelers are also getting back a couple of defensive starters this week including Ryan Shazier, who is very interesting since he is exactly the hybrid LB/S who has both the size and speed to POTENTIALLY cause some problems with our TE's

    Clearly, given the situation, the #1 threat is going to be LBell, but even with Jones, you can't entirely try to shut down the run when they have 3 excellent receivers to threaten your perimeter, including the best in the league.

    That being said, I fully expect the Pats to win this game, even though its on the road, but those who think it won't be a competitive game are fooling themselves. Before Rothlessberger's injury the Steelers looked like the most dangerous opponent the Pats could face in getting to the Superbowl. You would think by now that we would understand that football is NOT a one man game. That Steeler team is certainly weakened by Rothlessberger's injury, but they didn't just suddenly become the Browns overnight.

    You would have thought that we might have learned the lesson of just how good EVERY NFL team is, with what we saw in the first 36 minutes of last Sunday's game, and that one was in our stadium. I will be pleasantly surprised if the game next Sunday doesn't go in a similar fashion, with the Pats fighting for their lives for the better part of 3 quarters before pulling away in the 4th.

    And if the Pats somehow decide that this is the game they will play their B game with a few TO's and some sloppy play....... :eek:

    Its going to be easier without Ben but a tough game nevertheless. Brown,Bell ,Coates are all great offensive weapons and can break open a game in a hurry. Combine this with them coming off a loss and playing at home, its going to be a tough game for the pats.

    I think our week one win in Arizona should serve as a reminder not to take this game easy just because Roethlisberger isn't playing.

    I agree, we shouldn't take them lightly but worth mentioning that even when they had full strength, Brady made Steelers his bitch almost every time. We are 8-2 against them with Brady (2-0 in the playoffs).

    One of the things that has me worried is that Pittsburgh's stadium is considered one of the toughest places to kick. Given Ghost's recent misses, I hope this doesn't come down to a field goal to win.
