The Steelers will attempt to return to the Super Bowl and defend their AFC championship from 2010, when they finished 124 and won the AFC North division.

It also marks the first season under new head coach John Fox, as well as the first with John Elway as the team's Executive Vice President of Football Operations. The Broncos doubled their win total from 2010, and clinched their first playoff berth and division title since 2005.
Former college superstar Tim Tebow started the remaining 11 games for the Broncos, who finished with an 8-8 record but managed to win the AFC West via tiebreakers with the Raiders (8-8 ) and Chargers (8-8 )

I've been thinking about this a lot. You may see Troy in the backfield all game long.

Lets just remember that last year had a pretty big wildcard upset before we get too confident. As long as the coaching staff keeps the team focused we should be able to pull it off, we can't get cocky though.

Tebow was 6 for 22 for 60 yds today, but they ran the ball okay. Put Troy as a spy, stop the running game, make Timmie beat us in the air. I think its a good thing he has a strong relation with the man upstairs, i think he is going to need it!

I hope this doesn't turn into a religious debate. The Steelers don't have to worry about Denver's WR's or TE's as they are all very mediocre. Stack 8 in the box and force him to throw it. All we need to do is get a few quick scores early and force him to pass the ball.

I'm worried about this game. Denver's D scares me and Ben is not healthy and this team is having issues in the red zone. The Oline is still a mess.

Wont be an easy game, but we match up better against them than they match up against us. Their defense is good, but inconsistent.

If Ben were healthy, Id be alot more comfortable.

I hope they utilize Miller more in this game. Also it seems like the WR with the exception of Brown are having a hard time getting open. Too bad Mendy is out.

Miller was having issues getting open too.

This would be a good game to attack the deep middle and open up some major play action. Their safety play is very weak.

Redman IMO is better suited to run against Denver than Mendy anyway. Still wish Mendy was healthy but Redman should be fine IF HE CAN HANG ON TO THE DAMN FOOTBALL!.

Don't think we'll be able to play Troy as a spy as liberally as most of you are suggesting. Ryan Clark can't play at Mile High (he has a medical condition that effects him at high altitudes) and I don't exactly trust Ryan Mundy to play well as our only safety over the top. He's alright, but I'd rather have Clark with his big hits.
