McAfee Coliseum - 4:15 PM EST
I'm starting to feel like a broken record by saying this is the week the Steelers need to turn their season around! Actually, the clock is ticking now and time is running out on this season and it's becoming a now or never situation. The Steelers have all the right pieces it's just a matter of all those pieces showing up on the same Sunday. This game is definitely winnable for the Steelers, hopefully they are not looking past an Oakland team that is coming off their first win of the season last week against the Cardinals.
Oakland has a shotty run defense so between Parker and Davenport they should gather up at least 200 yards combined. Oakland's pass defense looks impressive on paper but I'm sure there is a reason behind the numbers. It's time for the Steelers to get the ship going in the right direction, they are now 2 games back in the AFCN and they are going to need some help along the way.
- Rattle a young Walter (hopefully not how they tried to rattle Rivers!)
- Run, run, run... did I mention they need to get the running game going.
- Hang on to the damn ball!
Big Ben suffered another concussion last week weekend but reports late this week are that he will be playing this weekend! Reid is out another week, Hampton is doubtful and Porter is Questionable.
Join us this Sunday here in the gameday thread as we talk about the game and cheer our Steelers to a victory!!!!
