    Nobody cared that the 9 - 7 Giants committed mental mistakes and played like crap when they beat NE in the Super Bowl.

    The Steelers came within inches last year of winning. Their passing game vs NE defense is like crap through a goose. JUJU is every bit as good as Brown and they unlike NE, can spot late round WR talent and develop them. Other WRs on their roster are better than the rag tag guys like Dorsett and Patterson.

    Is Bell better than Conner? Probably yeah, but Conner is no chump. While Conner is racking up yardage and TDs, NE sits and hopes that Sony and Burkhead will come through like winning the powerball.

    Steelers are due to win and Tomlins head is on the chopping block to deliver.

    Have you ever encountered an opponent with a winning record on the Patriots schedule that you believed could be beaten?

    Pittsburgh is the "sexy" team every single year, the "hold up everyone, this might be the most talented team in the league! watch out!" it's old at this point.

    The Steelers have done this before. Start slow, then go on a roll where they look unstoppable. One of these times it’s going to be the real deal.

    Their defense looks almost as good as their offense. Ben should be cautious and stay in the pocket. He’s been gimpy late in other failed seasons.

    I think they’re worth talking about.

    How can you tell?

    Ben fakes/exagerrates more injuries in a season than your average person will fake being sick to get out of plans with friends over the course of their entire life.

    Well they do beat Brady once every 7 years. 2004, 2011, so this would appear to be their year i guess. Lets hope for psycho tom to prevent that. This is also probably the last chance theyll have to get us at home for the ben/brady years since the next 3 years regular season games will be in foxboro if they do meet where theyve never beaten brady. So this may be their last good chance to get home field on us in January

    It would be hilarious if Chris Hogan, with all this heckling he’s receiving scores 3 tds against the Steelers because no one cares enough to cover him.

    Fortunately, Tomlin's head is utterly empty. All he knows how to do is practice his sideline stare.

    Absolutely.

    Others are starting to get on board about Pittsburgh and New Orleans as real deals this season while everyone else is focused on Kansas City and Los Ramgeles.

    You have to give Pittsburgh due for finding WRs in the draft and developing them into stars. I cannot think of another club as good. They have guys sitting that you dont see much because JUJU and Brown play at such a high level.

    Watch out for TE McDonald too.

    The two victories by the Steelers were also on Halloween weekend and the Patriots decided to go as the Jets.

    The Steelers have a RFA WR I hope BB is thinking about making an Offer for WR Eli Rogers he's coming off an ACL but should be more than a year removed in 2019. AlsoPackers WR Geronimo Allison another RFA. Knowing we are moving from Hogan and Drosett I would take either guy. Memo to BB and Patriots director of Scouting sign WR's from Teams who knows how to Draft them.:rolleyes:

    That is going to be a VERY hard game for the Pats to win. Rothlessberger is a MUCH different QB at home vs the road. For whatever reason, his road stats are significantly worse that his home stats, and its been that way for a few years now. So the fact this game will be IN Pittsburgh does not bode well for the Pats for that reason alone. Then you add the fact that this version of the Pats seem to suck on the road (relative to past teams). So it will be likely that the Pats will be underdogs for the first time in a long long time when they play the Steelers.

    The key to any future success for the Pats this season will be the RE-establishment of a consistent running game. Unless that happens (imho) this offense is not capable of winning any shootouts that are likely to occur with our current defense....or any defense ast the KC/Rams game proved)

    I thought that the Steelers were going to take a step back this season. Well, at least I wasn't too wrong, since I don't think they took take a step forward.

    On the Road, this is a very though game, because of what Ken said: Big Ben. Any HoFer QB has to be respected and can win games if he's on fire.

    That said, i think we match-up favorably to them. Our Corners have been the best part of our D (maybe not last game, but everyone sucked) and they have their offense prowess all on that WR corps. Their OL is beastly, but we have good Run Stuffers and we don't really play for sacks anyways.

    Then I think our O is better than their D, easily ... if not for the fact that are simply not playing well on the road this year. I don't believe in exogenous factors though and I don't think we will be ill-prepared against them.

    Our CB's have been the best part of our D haven't faced an Offense with Two #1WR's. Brown is one of the Best vets in the game still in his prime and Juju is what 21 and threatens every part of the field. One things for sure we won't be the favorites.
