Here we are at week 10 and the Steelers have 3 times as many losses as they do wins... who would have ever thunk up such a scenario? Mathematically the Steelers still have an outside shot at making the playoffs but if they are going to start their quest at history again then it's going to have to be this week!

The Saints have been running on emotion all year and have looked really good, how long can they keep this up though or are they in fact really this good? The Saints are 3rd in the league for passing which is the Steelers weak spot on defense so it should be interesting to see how the Steelers respond. On the flip side though the Steelers, when its used, have one of the best rushing teams in the league but for some reason they have went with the pass this year hoping to setup the run... :dunno: These 2 areas will probably be the key to the game and whoever can their "specialty" going first will more than likely come out on top. Other keys to the game:

Hang on to the damn ball!
Get the running game going because the Saints can't stop it
Everyone needs to step up on both sides of the ball

Again the Steelers have no notable injuries this week, but based on the results from last week it doesn't really matter :dunno: The Saints will more than likely be without their All Pro wide receiver Joe Horn.

Joe Horn is out but Bush is playing...we better not let him run all over us because that would be his first real huge game and it makes us look even worse than we already do.

Bush will NOT run all over us. Bush is so overrated it is sad. Lay a good solid hit on him. He will disappear.

what i mean as the death of us, not the game, but overall this season, cowher is the reason this team will be watching the playoffs at home, you could tell he wasn't calling plays in the 1st quarter cause we scored twice.....but i guess he couldn't take that he was being out shined so he took over and then run run pass punt, that's his specialty

This is officially the worst Steelers team I have ever seen and I've been watching them for 30 years!
This team can't do anything right. The offense is Top 10 because we always behind so we rack up yards. The D is Top 10 because the offense always turns the ball over in our own end (maybe not this game yet).
I can't even begin to tell you what is wrong with this team except everything.
I could go on and on but I guess I'll go back up an torture myself by watching the second half.

i can tell you, cowher is what is wrong, as soon as all the players got the feeling that he didn't even want to be coaching they all said why the hell should we risk ourselves for a man that won't even be back next year.....he should've did it tiki style and announce that he's retiring so the players could rally around him, instead he's held it in and everything is going wrong cause his head isn't in the game and the players just don't give a f'k anymore

House Of Steel Post-Game Wrapup

New Orleans Saints at Pittsburgh Steelers

Hello everyone. What an exciting game here in Pittsburgh as they finally grab victory number three in a shootout of epic proportions with the Steelers coming on top in a 38-31 game.

The game starting with everything seemed to be going all wrong again for the Steelers, ranging from the lost of two key defensive starters in Troy Polamalu and Deshea Townsend and then follow by losing a 14-point lead.

THE BIGGEST KEY HERE, they didn't lose this game and they only committed one turnover.

The biggest story of this game was Willie Parker who broke loose on runs of 72 and 76 yards to set up his own two short scoring runs in the second half, Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes and the Steelers rallied after giving away a big lead.

Parker, last week was concerned about some teammates not being hungry or were losing theirs focuse as they were in winning the Super Bowl last season after the dismal lost at home against Denver last Sunday. He can't be faulted for this effort tonight. He had closed in very close to the Steelers Single Game Record by 5 yard held by Frenchy Faqua against Philadelphia in 1970 (218) by running for 213 yard on 22 carries, with scoring runs of 3 and 4 yards in the second half. Parker had a total of 187 of his 213 yards in the second half.

The Saints (6-3) had rallied to lead 17-14 on Reggie Bush's 15 yard touchdown run on a double reverse, with Bush tumbling over safety Ryan Clark to reach the end zone. Then, lead again 24-17 on Duce McAllister 4 yard run during a 72-yard drive the Brees executed in one minute in the first half.

Drew Brees for the fifth time this season has thrown over 300 yards in a game, going 31 for 47 for 399 yards with Marques Colston making 10 catches for 169 yards in making the Steelers Secondary look like deers in headlights. The biggest thing that cost the Saints this ballgame was turning the ball over three times to Pittsburgh, are you ready for this ? ZERO TIMES!!!! A miracle has happened.

The Steelers (3-6) played most of the final three quarters without their two key defensive starters in Polamalu and Townsend, out with concussions. The injuries forced an alternate plan to go far down the bench for backups, especially with the Steelers frequently using 5 defensive backs to counter Drew Brees.

The Saints got close again at 38-31 on McAllister's second 4-yard touchdown run of the game midway through the fourth quarter. It was one of those plays that just threw the Steelers way off on defense and confused even the New Orleans Saints, but however, it was a bad snap from Jeff Faine. Saints were very forunate that McAllister was alert enough to pick the fumble up and run through an open lane for the touchdown. The winning seal for the Steelers came when the Saints chances of tying or winning ended with the Steelers' Ryan Clark recovering a Terrance Cooper's fumble at the Steelers 20 following a 25-yard pickup in the final minutes.

Other key highlights for the Steelers, Roethlisberger's touchdown passes of 37 yards to Hines Ward and 2 yards to Heath Miller. Tight End Billy Miller's fumble at the Saints 32 was recovered by Brett Keisel lead to the Heath Miller's score.

Despite the Steelers winning for only the second time since September 7th, the Steelers are still four games behind the leader, Baltimore with seven games to play when the Ravens rallied from behind to beat Tennessee 27-26 after trailing 26-7.

Could this victory start the running of the tables for the Pittsburgh Steelers? We all must remember no team with a 2-6 record at midpoint in the season ever made the playoffs, considering last year's momumental run to Super Bowl XL, could the Steelers stir a miracle and win the AFC North and the playoff berth? Join us next week as we travel to Cleveland, Ohio to face the arch-rival Cleveland Browns. The Final tonight 38-31 victory for the Steelers. Good Night and God Bless.
