    I"d sure like to see Rainey return one for a score. I'd like our special teams to make a difference.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Dwyer will have some good runs, and I think Redman will do okay too. If Rainey gets some touches at RB, he could have a splash play or two. I'm more concerned about our secondary vs Peyton, as well as our line keeping Ben upright.

    you get a run game going that helps with both them things, one it slows the game down which keeps peytons butt on the bench and if they think we are going to run that opens up play action and the quick slant

    True, but those situations are what happens when your running attack takes over a game, like the 49ers and Texans are able to do. I think our RBs will have some good runs, but I don't think they will dominate the game. If Dwyer starts, this would be first start in the NFL (primetime against Manning's debut no less), Rainey is a rookie, Mendy's knee can't be ready to go, and Redman is coming off hip and ankle injuries. Not saying our backs won't look good and make splash plays, but I don't think they'll take the game over.

    Plus can we get pressure?

    Pressure is key, like beating Brady you have to rattle him... Manning needs to be knocked on his *** (a lot)..

    3 and outs, our tackles against Von Miller. We need to contain Decker and Thomas.

    Another factor will be the Steelers RB's vs the Blitz in passing situations. And great point about the Broncos defense. The defense has not changed significantly so if the Steelers can run the ball with some effectiveness and limit the sacks, then I say Steelers win this game.
