    But they looked pretty in those losses and we looked ugly in our wins. Or something.

Our collective D is very suspect at the moment, and I don't feel will be able to contain Ben, and their renewed running attack; our O should put up some points, but Pitt's D is looking pretty good right now; and our ST, I don't feel have the breakaway threat(s) that the Steelers do. Putting this all together, at least on paper, I am not very confident of a W in Pittsburgh on SNF. Just trying to be objective here, and would like other's opinions regarding said matchups.

    Probably have the child born on the bench, that way the kid gets to see dad at work. Don't be surprised if you see a surgical unit on the sidelines with a pregnant woman. LOL He'll get to hold the baby while the defense is on the field.

    The reason why the Browns played the Ravens tough is because they know them so well. Last year the Ravens were supposed to get destroyed in the rematch with the Steelers because they had just beaten the Pats and the Ravens had to mount a huge comeback to beat the lowly Cardinals. Pundits predicted that since week 1 the Steelers had become the better team because Ben was playing lights out along with the world's best defense while little Joe Flacco and an aging defense could not stand up to the world's team.

    We know how that game turned out.

    Can we focus on Oakland first? The last thing we need is to get caught with our pants down looking ahead to Pitt. We'll have plenty of time to worry about the Steelers, we play them twice in 3 weeks. Let's focus on kicking Oakland's ass and earning some style points for the BCS.

    I prefer to see how we do against Oakland before I decide how I feel we'll do against Pitt.
    Dean Pees is now going to be in the box--will that make a positive difference?
    Hall appears to be in; Kemo out--that should improve our run D.
    Suggs will be healthier & in better shape (hopefully)
    Maybe Cam is finally feeling the heat and will actually call a smart game & dare I say it, ADJUST when needed.
    Maybe Good, no make that Great Joe will show up like he usually has against the Steelers in the past 2 seasons--even though it's a ROAD game.
    Maybe Taylor being a year older + no Polamalu means Torrey & Jacoby will be running free and wild--or at least getting open constantly.
    Maybe the O-line won't suck.

    OK< I admit, that's a lot of maybes, because let's face it: the Steelers still have Lebeau & Tomlin, and now Haley has brought out the best in Ben & Heath, while continuing to involve the other WRs and balancing the pass nicely with the run. And our D is not what it once was, but maybe they can step up finally, maybe the O will finally have a strong road performance, maybe our coaches will realize how much they suck and realize what they really need to do--study the game film of other teams who have come up with competent game plans & mid-game adjustments against the Steelers recently and just copy as much of whatever they did as our own talent will allow.

    Ironically, that would include film from the Ravens-Steelers games in 2011
    (but not 2010, that film needs to be burned)
