The Browns are coming off a performance in which they were shutout by the Bengals of all teams... AT HOME! There isn't much to say about this game. The Browns are really playing for pride, and the Steelers will be playing their starters but I would imagine playing not to get hurt.

This is a big rivalry game but considering the two teams are on opposite ends of the spectrum there doesn't seem to be that spark usually there to get you ready for this big matchup. I would imagine this game will be more of a scrimmage for the Steelers to work on a few things before heading into the playoffs. Plus this might be one of those games where the defense can pin back their ears and really go after the Browns as their offense is right near the bottom in the league.

Yes we would like to see a Steelers win because after all it is the Browns and should the Browns win then we'll hear the next 6 months about how the Browns will be contenders for the Super Bowl next year. With that, here are the keys for a Steelers win:

No turnovers.
No injuries.
Get some points on the board and call it day.


Join us this Sunday as we talk about the game and cheer our Steelers to a victory! :cope:

hey i think tomlin is making a good chose by starting the starters because they have a week off and they would be rusty if they did not play.

I think Mike Tomlin made a good choice because my ticket was expensive.

We need to dominate these guys and head into the playoffs on a high note :bigthumb:

Gradkowski to start at quarterback for Browns (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08361/937692-66.stm?cmpid=steelers.xml)

Injury Report
Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison (hip) and safety Ryan Clark did not practice for the second day in a row. Clark will not play against the Browns because he dislocated his right shoulder for the second time this season against Tennessee.

If he doesn't practice today, it is unlikely Harrison will play against the Browns.
Keisel moves forward

Defensive end Brett Keisel said he felt "slow" against the Titans, his first game back after missing three in a row because of a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. Keisel had just one tackle.

"But it was great to be back out there again, and now I can just go forward," Keisel said.

Crennel winless vs. Steelers

The Browns have lost the past 10 meetings with the Steelers, a streak that has put their coach, Romeo Crennel, in a dubious spot.

Crennel is the only coach in Browns history to never beat the Steelers (0-7).


Quick hits

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has 101 career regular-season touchdown passes. His 17 this season are down from his team-record 32 last season and more in line with his first three seasons in which he had 17, 17 and 18. ... LaMarr Woodley remains third among linebackers in the AFC with 11.5 sacks, behind former Steeler Joey Porter (17.5) and teammate James Harrison (16), but he doesn't have a sack in the past three games and just two in the past six.

AZ thanks for the update.

The Steelers need to have Harrison and Clark healthy for the playoffs. Hopefully with the week off against the Browns and a first round bye they both will be healed for the Steelers first playoff game.

Hopefully Keisel will get his legs back against the Browns. Not only did he look slow against the Titans, most of the Steelers D looked a little sluggish IMO.

Yeah, two vital components. Maybe they'd just put Harrison out there for a couple plays, you know, 3-4 sacks no big deal.

Bombhunter
12-28-2008, 02:10 PM

Moondog

BlitzburghRockCity

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:18 PM
comon defense, get tough!

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:19 PM
The Browns offense has no business moving the ball at all...they have not scored in I don't know how long.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:20 PM

Moondog

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:23 PM

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:24 PM

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:24 PM
I really don't feel like watching them toy around with these guys all day..

champnation
12-28-2008, 02:25 PM
nice catch by hines, I think once we get rolling we can make this game a blowout.

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:25 PM

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:25 PM

Now come on...convert this

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:27 PM
I just don't figgin understand parker, he never runs anywhere..i mean my God

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:27 PM
OK...here we go

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:28 PM

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:29 PM
there is no excuse for this what so ever!!

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:29 PM
I just don't figgin understand parker, he never runs anywhere..i mean my God

I would like to see Russell get more carries.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:29 PM
hey offense, news flash..if u dont' want to play the whole game you better start doing something

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:30 PM
I would too, Tomlin is hell bent on Parker doing something this year. He's as bad as Cowher was with that ****. Parker doens't have it this year, get Russel involved and make the tough decision.

Steel Trap86
12-28-2008, 02:31 PM
I dont get the game today, but I see we still havent scored yet? what the frigg is going on ??? get moving guys!!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:32 PM
this is such a bunch of ****...Ben had no business throwing that pass that late

Moondog

What....Lewis gonna get a 100 yds today?

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:35 PM
this defense is playing totally uninspired right now..there is no excuse to give up that on 3rd down

BlackGold4vr
12-28-2008, 02:35 PM
I'm hoping for a Willie Parker injury. No way we advance in the playoffs with him as our featured back! Lets count how many rushes Willie has for 4 yards or more in this game. So far its zero. :yesnod:

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:37 PM
defense saves us again...wonder how fast we can turn it over this time

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:38 PM
Lets see if they will go 4 or 5 wide this drive maybe hahaha NOT...

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:38 PM
im with you man, this guy can't even run against the 31st ranked defense in the league. so far pass protection is pretty good but he can't do ****.

BlackGold4vr
12-28-2008, 02:39 PM
1st down: Willie for a yard

2nd and 9: Willie loses 2 yards

3rd and 11: fill in the blank

This is the Steeler offense! :yesnod:

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 02:40 PM
jeez will TOMLIN F'ing do something about parker!

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:40 PM
im am so sick of this ****.....that's 2 holding calls on heath today and willie has a grand total of what 11 yds on 6 carries

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:40 PM
The fact that this offense is still having trouble putting points on the board against this Browns defense is a huge huge problem and there is just no excuse for it period...Tomlin has a serious serious problem with the ineptitude of this offense it's to the point of ridiculous now...

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:41 PM
wait, was that a 4 yd run????? holy ****

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 02:42 PM
GOD i love thi team but if they dont do something about the offense in the offseason i dont know how much i can watch next year, im tired of the ulcer i am getting from watching the Offense play every week.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:42 PM
and now he runs up and falls down..OMG this is just f'n ridiculous

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:42 PM
Have they ran Mewelde Moore one time in this game yet??? Moore fits this offense a lot better with the way it's ran USE THE ****ING GUY FOR CHRIST SAKES...

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:43 PM

12-28-2008, 02:43 PM
there's the flag...my God took them long enough

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:44 PM
Get Parker off the field

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:44 PM
i don't know who's worse, the line or parker...there is just no excuse

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:44 PM
Nice...TD

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:44 PM
TOUCHDOWN..FINALLY!!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:45 PM
****, i bet it's holding...damnit!

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:45 PM
Unbelievable just when you think something good happens they throw an effin flag...

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:45 PM
i could have sworn that was going to be intercepted

12-28-2008, 02:46 PM

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:46 PM
here we go..we're gonna end up punting again

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:47 PM
we are absolutely a horrific offense....we can't even move the ball against the browns.

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:48 PM
Wow that would have been a huge break there we are getting no calls today at all...

BlackGold4vr
12-28-2008, 02:48 PM
Russell is the guy they should be using on first and second downs. Mawelde is a great 3rd down back. Russell is a north south power runner who CAN break tackles. :yesnod:

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 02:48 PM
i dont htink i can continue watching this crap, why in the hell is this game so close, we are the fricken 2 seed in the AFC and we are playing as good as a team drafting in the top 5 next year, for crying out loud the browns have as many wins as we have loses!

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:49 PM
Nice punt...at least

JensK
12-28-2008, 02:50 PM
At least Berger is punting somewhat decent today >.>

Dee Mca
12-28-2008, 02:52 PM
Was upset this game wasn't broadcast to me. So I found a stream for it. Besides Hines getting his 1,000 yards.

12-28-2008, 02:53 PM
at this rate nobody is going to score a TD today

BlackGold4vr
12-28-2008, 02:54 PM
3 reasons why we won't advance in the playoffs this year:

Willie Parker

Bruce Arians predictability

Offensive line mediocrity

Those 3 flaws are too great to overcome. We can't score against the Shitstains! :banging:

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:54 PM
I can't believe its still scoreless...the Steelers should be up by 10 at least

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 02:55 PM
Tomlin needs to tell ben he either plays better or gets benched, i dont really want to bench Ben but he only plays good when he is trying to save something, so motivate him by telling him he is saving his job.

I know he has been hurt and what not but when you are paid like he is you just expect and demand more from him.

And for the love of god Sit Parker!

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 02:55 PM
If the offense cant score a ****in touchdown with this kind of field position I am going to break my remote...Go spread offense now and let's get the damn ball in the end zone 7 points should probably be enough today...

Moondog
12-28-2008, 02:56 PM
Whats scary is they set out to win this game.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:58 PM
OMG WHAT WAS THAT..PARKER ACTUALLY RAN FOR MORE THAN 2 YDS!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT

Steel Trap86
12-28-2008, 02:58 PM
How in the hell have the Steelers not scored a TOUCHDOWN yet, I dont understand how Tomlin could let this offense go like it has. The Browns are terrible, if they cant even run the ball on the Browns then I am concerned for the playoffs.

Boys...Adrian Peterson just had a 67 yard Run TD against the Giants defense, where the hell has that been all season for the Steelers. They need to get back to Steeler Football.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 02:58 PM
I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW, PARKER SCORED A TD ON A LONG RUN

The thing is ....we won't see that against playoff teams

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:05 PM
they are saying it's incomplete...challenge that tomlin!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:06 PM
damint comon challenge that!

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:06 PM
stupid ****in move by Tomlin..that was clearly a catch!! damint we should have had 6 more

Moondog
12-28-2008, 03:07 PM
Wonder why Tomlin didn't challenge that?

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:08 PM
i don't care if we get the ball back or not that was a stupid move.. you have the challenge to burn, we could have went up 14 zip and put them on their heals. there's no guarantee we score on this drive.

Steel Trap86
12-28-2008, 03:08 PM

Ok...lets get some more points...its a shame...this game could be a blowout.

Wonder why Tomlin didn't challenge that?maybe if Tomlin was really calling the game he might have! :dunno:

BlacknGold Bleeder
12-28-2008, 03:12 PM

12-28-2008, 03:13 PM
fu#king great .. Ben's down

Moondog
12-28-2008, 03:14 PM

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:14 PM
now this is where you call for tomlins head, i am a supporter but this is just stupid!

BlacknGold Bleeder
12-28-2008, 03:16 PM
guessing shoulder again didn't look all that bad of hit definitely seen him take harder shots

BlacknGold Bleeder
12-28-2008, 03:17 PM
why would you call for Tomlin's head ,that just stupid, this offense needs work

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:17 PM
although what would we all say if Leftwich goes in and carries the team thru the playoffs?

not saying it would happen but the last time ben got hurt leftwich did come in and rock the offense

Moondog
12-28-2008, 03:17 PM
Living in NE Ohio...this will make the clowns fan's pathetic season. They hate the Steelers more than they like their own team.

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:17 PM
why would you call for Tomlin's head ,that just stupid, this offense needs work

Cause our franchise QB is hurt for a game that is meaningless!

are you for real with that question??

Captcoolhand
12-28-2008, 03:19 PM
When your Head coach is not down there acting concerned, you have to wonder who the F*ck is coaching this team....:cursin:

Troyisabeast_43
12-28-2008, 03:19 PM
This is what Tomlin gets for playing guys in a meaningless game this is why you dont do this kind of ****...

12-28-2008, 03:19 PM
am for real , that stupid staement we need this game for offense to get it stuff together

This isn't looking good. Hope Ben's alright.

livingthrudying

yeah and you play a 100 million QB against a team that has nothing to play for and hates us.

So waht happens to the offense with ben out now? you dont take chances with your franchise just to get momentum!

even if its a 1 in a million chance that someone gets hurt you dont take that chance, what happens if something happened to ben and its carreer ending?

Yeah i was using that, but i could only use it for like 5 min, then i lost the signal, and the NFL gamepass servers are all down, so i basically payed 25$ for watching an error sign.. :/

I didn't have a problem with Tomlin playing the starters..I think he had to considering how they looked against Tenessee, its a shame though because I bet Ben would have been done at halftime.

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:35 PM
i gotta wonder, if the biggest thing for ben after watching leftwich play again is that leftwich seems to read the defenses better, he is not Ben thats for sure but i really wonder if that might be the mainthing holding ben back at this point?

thoughts?

champnation
12-28-2008, 03:35 PM
Leftwich is a good QB but I don't know how long we need him in there especially if we can get one more TD. I just didn't like the look of Ben's injury even from a career ending standpoint he looked pretty shooken up. I think second half we need to try to just play smash mouth and not get Letwich or other starters banged up.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:36 PM
i was just taking the kids back today when Ben went down...they said he was moving prior to be taken off which hopefully is a good sign

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:36 PM
i would like to see Dixon play just to see him play and you are not going to get a better chance than this, but leftwich will stay in for the practice in case Ben cant go anytime soon.

BlitzburghRockCity

BlitzburghRockCity
12-28-2008, 03:39 PM
nothing new at this point, he was taken off on the stretcher and was seen moving prior to be putting on the backboard so hopefully it's a good sign. you can never be too careful with this kind of stuff.

JensK
12-28-2008, 03:40 PM
Seeing that Ben most likely wont return in this game, does that "promote" Dixon to second QB today?

steelerschick1220
12-28-2008, 03:40 PM
Terry just said on fox that Ben has a "slight concussion". he did bang his head pretty hard.

Ben moved his whole arm when he waved to the crowd so we know he's go movement all over which is definitely a good sign

Ben is banged up as it is, we really didnt need that going into the playoffs. This makes me happy the Steelers got the bye week, because if we have any shot at making a superbowl run we need that week off to rest up.

What im really worried about is, if he is going to be able to get prepared. I think there is little doub that he'll be ready to play in two weeks with a small concuccion, but the playoffs is all about preperation .

nice job defense, shutting em down now big time.

livingthrudying
12-28-2008, 03:57 PM
we have no idea if its a mild concussion or whatever, its all speculation at this point, there is no way to know for sure what the extent is until he has further tests. Keep in mind this is not a normal QB getting any kind of concussion, this is a QB with a near fatal accident in the not so distant past. We are not out of the woods yet, even a mild concussion is probably a little worse for him than a average person due to previous injuries.

I sure hope he is OK!

Concussions can be serious, but I was worried that he was paralyzed and his career was over. I was so thrilled when I heard he gave them thumbs up. Here's to hoping he is ready for the playoffs.

i think Byron can read defenses better and at this point in the season isnt as gun shy, but i gotta say the pass protection looks prety good for him so far

JensK
12-28-2008, 04:06 PM
He is not going to work with out o-line though. He needs a killer o-line to be good because he throws so slow, and he is just as mobile as a stone (i know he just broke a tackle).

steelerschick1220
12-28-2008, 04:07 PM
Byron also hasn't taken a pounding all year. I think we would be fine for a game or so with Byron running the show, but if he was our qb for three or four weeks, we would be really screwed.
