Let's hope they can. I'm a big Steelers fan and we haven't been playing to well lately. I think if we can get Fast Willie parker running the ball and keep the pats and Tom Brady off the field, then we have a chance, but if those two things don't happen. Then prolly not.

Our defense has been playing really well as of late, so let's hope they at least keep us in the game till our staggering offense takes over.

I've grown up as a Steeler fan but I'd actually like to see New England run the table. Not like the last two though, I want to see them dropping bombs on people like they did earlier in the season... [Puts on flame proof suit, ducks for cover ] :D

Lifelong Steelers fan here, and I'm STILL trying to figure out how we could lose to the Jets! And the Broncos. Hell, my Bears frickin' beat Denver this year!

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

I agree. Don't forget to add in Arizona this year. We should be the ones also going 12-0 so far this year with the stupid loses we have this year.

Hey now, I understand that the drama is gone with the Pats being so successful. Still, I like the idea of rooting for a team that wins occasionally. Having lived in Queens NY (home of the Mets), Chicago (not during the Bears' heyday), and Boston I just got so used to getting pounded I'm enjoying the change in fortunes.

Of course now I live near the largest city on the planet to be without a pro football team.

Hmm, a team that wins occasionally, whats that? I'm a ravens fan... They almost beat the Pats though, that was actually a good game, minus all of the penalties.

I think Dick Lebeau's defense will slow down the Pats enough for the Steelers to make a game of it. My concern is whether the offensive line will open the holes for Willie Parker to run on them and pass protect well enough for Roethlisburger to throw the ball. Our offensive line has been the biggest question mark this season. They played pretty well against the Bengals this last week so if they show up again (as Coach Cowher used to say) "I like our chances."

I will say what I've been saying for a while now. The Patriots will go undefeated, and they deserve to. This weeks game against the Steelers is the last realistic chance for them to get beat. I hope it's a complete blowout. I want to laugh at those who are so vocal about 'running up the score'.

We're not counting out anything this year - we thought the Baltimore game would be the Ravens getting creamed and look what almost happened!?! Consistency has not been any team's claim to fame this year!

Hope the Steelers put a whoppin on em. I want to see like 7 sacks and a few INT's. Then just a whole 4th quarter of smash mouth ball running.

While the Steelers match up well against the Pats. I don't see them beating them this time around.
Depending on if TP plays in the game. If he plays it will be close.
The best thing that came out of last weeks Ravens game is that the Ravens POP Warner offense beat the hell out of the Pats Defense. I know this makes no sense to people not Familiar with the "Patriot Way" but they seem to thrive on doubt and there is certainly doubt about this Defense. Plus it the second game without Colvin so some of those Kinks will be worked out.

What really concerns me as a Pats fan is that the Pats always seem to get a KEY person injured when they play the Steelers.

I'm not going to beat around the bush. The Steelers will win this game.

There I've said it.
