The Steelers travel to Jacksonville this Sunday to face another team coming off an overtime victory this past weekend. Both teams are banged up and have issues with their offensive lines, and both are known for having a great rushing offense. This time around neither team is in the top 10 for rushing, and they both seem to be struggling offensively.

The Steelers offense, through the first 4 games, has been A-W-F-U-L! Big Ben has been sacked 15 times, sustained injuries to his shoulder, throwing hand and knee, has not had a 200 yard passing game, but has turned the ball over 5 times by himself. All this in just 4 games! In Ben's three games against the Jaguars he has averaged 168 yards passing, 1.6 TD passes, and 3.3 sacks per game with a QB rating of 85.6. Traditionally, Ben has struggled against Jacksonville but seemed to have a coming out party against them in the AFC Wild Card game as he brought the Steelers back from a double digit deficit in the 4th quarter only to fall short that game. Hopefully, Ben figured something out that game and is able to use it again this game.

Parker and Mendenhall are both out for this game, Mendenhall is actually done for the year along with RG Simmons. The Steelers are banged up bad right now, but really no more than any other team in the NFL as injuries seem to be the them this year. Moore will more than likely get his first start as a Steeler with Russell and Davenport backing him up, assuming Davenport is signed. The running is not existent this year averaging just 100 yards per game. At that pace they'll get 1600 on the year and probably be out rushed by 5 individuals. This woeful problems though can all be equated to the offensive line. The line has been non existent for a majority of the season only showing glimpses of hope every now and then, but really nothing to get excited about. Not all the blame can be placed on the line though, Ben could try and get rid of the ball sooner or the OC could call some plays to offset the blitzes opposing defenses are unloading on the Steelers.

Defense usually wins Championships, at this point this Steelers defense looks like they could win a Championship by themselves. They have stopped the run, and they aren't giving up the big plays down field. Granted they have had let downs on third and long but that can be expected from time-to-time. If the defense wasn't as good as they are their 3-1 record would probably be 1-3. For the Steelers to pull out a victory on the road in Jacksonville they will need to do the following:

Offensive line needs to protect Ben and open up holes for the running game.
Play calling needs to counter the blitzes and keep the defense on their heals.
Offense needs to wake up and use the star power to light up the scoreboard!


Join us Sunday night as we talk about the game and cheer on the Steelers to a victory!!!

Didn't we win last time we went to Jax? Its when we play them at home we get picked on. They are hurting too, so this could be another pick um game. We should get after the QB because their OL isn't any better than ours really. This game will come down to a war of attrition. We will win this. I really believe that. I know that we didn't look great on monday, but I know you all saw what I did, and that was a QB starting to take over the team. Ben is going to get this team going in the right direction, and he will show that he is the true leader of this team. He wants this responsibilty, and he will get it.

When opposites become one, a savior will emerge, and his name is Bionic Ben Roethlisberger.....

Jacksonville has one the last 3 meetings. Last year they came to Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers twice (1 Regular Season 22-29, and then the Playoffs). Go back to 2006 the Steelers went to Jacksonville and was shutout 0-9!

Go back to 2006 the Steelers went to Jacksonville and was shutout 0-9! Wasn't that the game with Batch at QB? Why did I think that was at home? Was our last win Bens Rookie year?

You go back to 2005 and Maddox was playing for an injured Big Ben and threw the INT in OT that was returned for a TD. In 2006 Big Ben played that night when he probably shouldn't have... You're bringing back a lot of bad memories :lol:

The last time the Steelers beat Jacksonville was Bens rookie year 2004, 17-16. Ben had an awesome game, 14/17 221 with 2 TD's with a QB rating of 158.0 :bigthumb:

Yeah,,,,,,you had to mention that game :cursin: I was there and that was my 1st game at Pittsburgh :banging:

We can take the jags,,,,,,,But after that heavy weight fight wth the rats and now going to jacksonville, I've got my doubts and like AZ said it's been 4 yrs since we've won :cursin:

If our o-line will give Ben a chance,"we'll win" But until our o-line straightens up,i'm hoping that Ben will make it to the bye week and maybe Tomlin can light a fire under these guys :pray:

I know one thing,,,,,,:scratch: I am a TITANS fan this week :popcorn:

My elderly father and mother stay with me and my family. My father is a huge Jacksonville fan. If we don't win this game I'll never hear the end of it. I would love to say this will be an easy win but Jacksonville's Defense looks pretty good. And their tandem duo running game is ridiculously good. The Steelers will need to bring their A game for certain Sunday.

Has anyone watched any of the jagoffs games this year :question-1: they are not the same team that we lost to twice last year. The O-line is a mess, Taylor and Jones Drew can't get out of each others way and the Defense is weak. There is no reason why we don't win this game by 14+ :markit:

The Jags have basically the same problems we do... O-line and Offensive Coordinator. Only difference is that their OC is learning. The way we'll win is to pass and pass some more. The Jags are 24th in the league in pass defense right now, and their secondary is beat up. The best thing I can think to do is turn the offense over to Big Ben and let him loose.

Aside from the problems on the offensive line I would give the Steelers a chance if Willie Parker was playing....but that's not happening.

Arians has got to use the swing pass, dump-offs and quidk slants along with some well timed screens and draws. There isn't going to be any pounding the ball with this line and this group of back-ups.
Sounds like a perfect day for Heath Miller!!

Unfortunately the Jags seem to have the Steelers number and will probably win another tight game.

I agree they look very beatable, an if the ref's don't mess up that holding call on hamp last year we win then, we will beat them by 14 plus.GO STEELERS:yellowthumb:

We probably beat you the 3 times before that on one play as well? You do realize your team will be missing twice as many starters as the Jags? We beat you twice in your house last year, so what makes you think we're gonna lose at home?

The Jaguars want to be the Steelers, they aspire to have the "Steeler Mystique", that's why they always get up to play them. The Steelers have to answer their intensity, they can't look down on them because the Jags wear teal and their "winning tradition" consists of .... nothing. Last year, in the playoff loss, I believe Pittsburgh gave the Jags everything they got via short fields due to turnovers and special teams breakdowns. If memory serves me correct, the Steelers moved the ball quite easily through the air, especially in the second half. If the defense keeps playing stout, if the offense injects more of the no huddle and protects the ball, and if the special teams keep playing well, I can't see any reason why the Steelers can't win this game. Oh, and by the way, the Jags are pretty banged up too. GO STEELERS!

I am convinced we can bring home a win from Florida.I hope it rains like a mutha!!We have yet to break out the whole package,and with our injuries,it might look bleak. I think that our offense can be very productive,they just are not showing thier potential yet. Whether by force,or by simply not wanting to show all of our cards at this point. True we have some new cards in the deck now,but we must play them in the correct mannor.I like our chances in this game at Jax. I think it is Jeff Reed again. 27-24 us of course!!!!!!!!This is the game that could define our season. If we can enter the bye @4-1,we can start to open it up some.It's all about takin care of business,and we have been answering that call for the most part.Doesn't have to be a pretty win at this juncture,it only has to be a win!!!!!!GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!27-24:tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02: :tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::t t02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02::tt0 2::tt02::tt02::tt02:

Hello Everyone!!!
Anyone Ready For Some Football?
Boy, I know I am... I have been waiting all day for this game tonight. I pretty much agree with everyone about our Off. Line... it must give Ben protection, but he also must make quick reads like he did in the 2nd half last week vs Ravens.
I would also like to see us spread the Jags defense out with 3, 4 and 5 WR's and go no huddle some to just keep the Jags guessing. We cant sit back and go 5 TE's!!.. we must get the WR's Holmes and Ward into this game early and often...
Oh Yeah.....
HERE WE GO STEELERS.....

This is going to be an odd game, you have to think the Jags will come out and try to run and it's up to us to stop them. If we can keep them in check then it will get real interesting to see what they do. That's the key, stopping Jones Drew, he's been a killer for us!

Because if he was in the booth he might actually see something and have to adjust to it. On the sideline, he can just guess, which apparently he prefers to do. :lol:

classic arians play call!

let a guy come through unblocked, and not have any WRs open on a quick check down route.

And Marvel Smith still got owned on that play by the speed rush, but the jags guy was stupid and got himself out of position and gave smith time to recover.

Being able to run some, and the use of a few quick routes and it all comes together.
