this week comes down to one word...PRIDE! the steelers sit at 1-2 and already at a turning point in this season. a win this week can get this team back on track after losing a horrible game to the lowly raiders. a loss and we could be in serious trouble of making the playoffs, hell we might even be looking at a top 15 draft pick next year.

the steelers have had the bye week to chew on that loss to the raiders...especially the defense. and this is where PRIDE comes in. do the steelers have enough PRIDE on the D side of the ball to get i going. they looked horrible in denver for most of the game. looked good against the jets for most of the game (but the jets suck!!!!), and looked really bad in the second half versus, of all people, carson palmer.

do the coaches have enough PRIDE? the players? we'll have to wait and see. but if they don't have, and show some PRIDE, they this is gonna be a long season.

The fact that they have had two weeks to chew on the pathetic loos to the Raiders kind of gives me hope that they will respond against the Eagles. But wish in one hand...

Two words: Sorry Defense.

Three words: No run game.

Pride has nothing to do with it. Poor game plans and lousier execution and lack of depth of talent are the culprits.

I used to think this way for years but they'll still come out flat, you can bet on that. Ben will be under attack all game and I have doubts we can stop Vicky and crew.

the players were running their mouths about redemption for the denver playoff loss and we all know how that turned out.

Let's not repent our sins and drain our bank accounts here. . .they're 1-2, not 1-9. Have some faith they will get it right. With all the parity in the league this year, there is a strong possibility that 10-6 might secure a wildcard or better.

Well, I'm down on La Beau. He obviously never has a plan B when plan A fails.

We had no pass rush WITH Harrison before he was hurt. So why should I think a pass rush in going to materialize with a Gimpy Harrison back in the lineup?

And is there going to be magic pixie dust sprinkled on the O-line to magically make know how to run block? Right now, I'm very upset with the prep work this team did in the off-season and camp. And the blame clearly lays at the feet of Colbert and Tomlin.

Colbert for being too stubborn (and clinging to old ways) on adding at least one legit O-lineman in free agency. And Tomlin for not being man enough to tell Le Beau that his ways are too old and stale now.

You're damn right we need to win this game, call it Pride or whatever you want but there's no way they can afford to lose this game. Pittsburgh pride runs deep and the history is there to back it up. If you're going to allow yourself to go 1-2 to start the year then you better suck it up and find a way to win.

Harrison, Troy, and Mendy will all see playing time.

I agree, another loss here and we may be playing for draft slotting next year.

Team lost a lot of leadership in Smith, Ward, and Farrior.

I hate to say this but I"m starting Jeremy Maclin on my fantasy team. I have no faith in the pass rush or the 10 yard cushion our CB's give WR's.
