    I think we got the better break with the weather



    Just checked both forecast and Cleveland is getting 9 inches of snow starting early sunday morning with 50 mph winds in the mid 30's and our game is low 40's partly cloudy but windy as well. Hate to be a kicker in either game lol

    I wouldn't mind being an NFL kicker. A minimum NFL salary is $375,000.

    Im assuming you are referring to Pitts game. How does that help us?

    Bad weather takes both QB's out of the game and it becomes a ground game. The Steelers ground game and run defense is light years better than Cleveland's.

    Instead of forcing Ben to throw, all he has to do now is hand off.

    Snow favors a mobile QB......for example Seneca Wallace.

    BTW there is no heavy snow forecast, but rain, snow showers and extreme wind....

    Hillis ran through us, and we have a better rush D than Pittsburgh.

    Bad weather can't be a bad thing. Throws a whole lot of variables into the mix that would not otherwise be there. We need that in that game.

    There was bound to be some drop-off with Redding out and Arthur Jones in

    The Steelers run-defense isn't dominant this year, allowing opponents a fairly pedestrian 4.0 YPC this season. Even so, they are far superior to the Browns run-defense. I'd also argue though, that a health Peyton Hillis is better than Mendenhall/Redman. So while there's no doubt the Steelers would still have the advantage in a run-first game, The difference between Ben R. and Seneca Wallace is MUCH larger than the difference between these teams respective runing games.

    Minimizing the huge advantage the Steelers have in the passing game works pretty clearly in the Browns favor. Steelers are still a clear favorite, but it narrows the gap a bit. Peyton Hillis v/ the Steelers D, the Browns at least have a chance. Seneca Wallace v/ Roethliesberger? Not gonna happen.
