    Smile Texans vs. Steelers (Wk. 1)

    vs.

    Sunday September 7, 2007
    1:00 PM EST @ Heinz Field


    The NFL season has finally returned!!! Coach Tomlin enters his second season, how will he perform? Big Ben returns from a stellar season last year where he set many Steeler records, can he top last years numbers? Santonio Holmes is now entering that crucial period for wide recievers... the third year! This is the time when you can start to tell how a receiver is going to be in the NFL. In training camp, he looked pretty good catching only 3 balls but 2 of them were for touch downs, not a bad average!

    The big question this season is going to be the offensive line after giving up almost 100 sacks the last two seasons combined! Those aren't impressive numbers especially when the Steelers have a franchise QB in Big Ben standing back there taking thos hits.

    It's hard to gage the first game of the season but the Steelers keys to a W are:
    • Focus on their current opponent
    • No Turnovers
    • Offensive line needs to keep Ben off his back.


    Join us this Sunday... here in the gameday thread as we talk about the game and cheer our Steelers to a victory!!!!

    Should be a good game. Better hope the Texans improving defense doesn't get to Ben with that weak offensive line of the Steelers

    Ben was sacked 47 times last year....The Steelers won 10 games and Ben threw a franchise record 32 TD passes......So Ben has proven he still can play well and lead the team to victory despite the constant pass rush he faces....

    Your Browns better be prepared to face the Cowboys.....The Cowboys easily could blow out the Browns.....TO and Witten against your terrible secondary.....

    Well I don't see it as that terrible. Brandon McDonald shut down one of the best WR's in the game in Andre Johnson last season. That was when we had no pass rush at all. With our safeties healthy, Jones, and Pool. We will be fine... if our defensive line and LB's pass rush well. Also, if Ben got sacked 47 times last season how many do you think it will be this season with Faneca gone? Ben's not super-man, sorry to screw up your wet dream their.

    We will see come week 2. Until then, GO BROWNS!!!

    Yea the Browns secondary is great.......You guys have no worries there...lol What a ****ing joke.......Again all this hyped up talk about the Browns and their new improved defense and pass rush....For all we know both Rogers and Williams could suck for you...lol Lets just put the Browns in the ****ing Super Bowl...I'm so sick of hearing about the Browns and I myself can't wait for week 2......The Steelers own the Browns and it will be no different week 2....For real your team has been complete shiat since returning to the NFL...Win something then talk smack....

    As for Alan Faneca....He made the Pro Bowl on his rep the last few years...Plus he was never great in pass protectiong...He was a terrific run blocker and one of the top OGs in the NFL in his prime...But he is past his prime and he could have cared less to be a Steeler last year....His play reflected that....

    I expect Ben to face a great pass rush again......But you can counter those things with play calling....Run quick slants with Holmes or even Ward.....Plus the Steelers added Mewelde Moore...He will be the Steelers version of Keven Faulk....He is nice out let receiver out of the back field and also is very good in picking up the blitz.....

    The Browns have a good shot at starting the season 0-2...... So worry about that and not the Steelers problems...

    Mods please move this to the trash talking section...So the Steelers/Texans thread is no longer hijacked...I'm guilty myself of this hijacking.....But I'm tired of these Dawgs showing talking smack....
