    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    I think Ben's leg is worse than the Steelers are saying. 49ers could pull out an upset, at least that is what I am hoping for.

    Lamar Woodley is going to be key. If he can make it through the entire game, it could make the difference for the Steelers. If he can only play twenty snaps and/or aggravates the hamstring injury, I could see Pittsburgh's defense struggling to force Alex Smith into passing.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    Unfortunately I think the 49ers are on an arc like Buffalo has already experienced and have probably run their course of good fortune for the season. The Ravens beat them up pretty badly and I don't think they are at that place yet to beat the elite teams. That being said, the Steelers are traveling across the country with serious personel problems.

    It will be tight but if Roethlisberger's fat, limping ass is out there, don't be surprised to see him win one at the end.

    Awesome weekend for football watching after a couple rather crappy ones.

    I have a suspicion that this one could get ugly for the Steelers.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    Any given Sunday. I am thinking with the defenses, it could go either way. Hell I have seen the Jags, Chiefs, Browns, and Colts test the MIGHTY Steelers.

    They will be without Cheapshot Harrison, so it should counter Patrick Willis. I am not giving anything for Ben playing hurt. Till that bitch is in a hospital bed, he still plays. I wonder how many drugs he'll be shot up with to play?

    Anyway, the 49ers are built like the Ravens of old, they'll hang and maybe get a close one. Unless Dracula, I mean Ben comes back from the grave one more time.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    I think the steelers are going to pull out all the stops to try and win this one.

    They already have a playoff birth, but with the division finally attainable for them, Ben will play.

    I don't know that it's a great move for their playoff hopes, trotting an injured Ben out there against that defense, but you certainly can't blame them for going for the division title.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    This is a close one, but the Steelers WRs need to come up with a huge play. I could see them breaking a big play or two to win it...As long as ben doesn't throw up too many lame ducks.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    It looks like Ben will try to play, but either way I think the Steelers will lean on the run game more heavily than usual. The 49ers generally lean on the run anyway.

    Steelers Rush Off. - 4.2 YPC (15th)
    49ers Rush Def. - 3.2 (1st)

    49ers Rush Off. - 4.2 (18th)
    Steelers Rush Def. - 4.0 (8th)

    Advantage defense. I think it will be a tight low scoring game that ultimately comes down to a few big plays. Those could be turnovers, defensive mistakes that lead to long plays, or big special teams plays. Anyway you slice it the Steelers have a knack for winning these types of games, but since that the 49ers are 10-3 and only 25th in the NFL in offensive yds/game I'm guessing they have a knack for that as well.

    This is a tough game to call. I'll be Tebowing all night asking for a 49ers win.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    The Steelers line is banged up without Pouncey in there. Legursky is a decent center, but that leaves a hole at LG. Kemoeatu was awful last game, racking up 3 penalties in less than 3 quarters, so Essex will likely fill in at LG this time.

    At LB, they should be ok if Woodley is healthy. Worilds has played very well filling in for Harrison and then Woodley and seems to get better every week.

    I really don't know about SF. The Steelers were having trouble stopping the run earlier in the year but have improved lately. If SF can't run, I don't see them winning this game. They're not going to be able to win through the air.

    It should be a close one.

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    SF's WRs are lousy. So the steelers should shut them down.
    It will be interesting to see how they try to attack the steelers.
    Pitt's gotta watch out for Vernon Davis down the seam. He could make some big plays if he can get between those LBs and Ss.

    I agree. Same plan. Take away gore, and get to smith. Harrison's out, but so is the niners starting LT....so that's a wash, and Worilds is a decent pass rusher in his own right. And they have Woodley back. Overall the steelers should be able to take advantage of a bad 49ers line.

    Where San Fran can make a big difference is special teams. Ted Ginn scares the hell out of me. And if Bens careless with the ball, some sack/strips are possible. But if Ben gets any time back there at all, I don't think San Fran has the horses in the secondary to contain Wallace, Brown, Cotchery, etc.

    All in all, a defensive battle like we saw on thanksgiving. Steelers 16-9

    Re: 49ers Vs Steelers

    I just hope it's a good close game to watch. If SF gets too aggressive on the pass rush, it could burn them quickly and they could be looking at a two score deficit. They're not built for that.

    Maybe they'll wear all black
