Ok. So the title isn't my best. Hoping we get KP back because I don't like what I'm hearing about Rolle. Also seems like Herzlich is going to start for Blackburn...which is probably a good thing...?

We need our D-line to be at the top of it's game because Big Ben can move (not FAST per say) and they'll be running it...and I hope our DB's can keep a lid on Wallace and Brown at least somewhat in check...

All that said I think we can win this one. The Steelers aren't as good as they've been in years past. I just hope our offense gets out of it's funk and our defense stops giving up 400+ yards. Razz

Hmm... Steelers are 2nd in passing YPG on D. Granted the only top tier QB they've faced is Peyton...they don't seem to get lots of picks or sacks so I'm feeling better about that. Granted the #1 passing D we beat...(San Fran) but that doesn't mean THAT much Smile

This game is gonna be nuts ... know a few steelers fans and we're throwing a huge party.

I think our D can stop the pass ... but we need to focus alot of attention to Mike Wallace

I am really looking forward to this test for our team. I truly believe it will be high scoring believe or not. The Playcalling MUST be better. I am beating the Drum for Gilbride to be fired and Fewell is on the hot seat to me. 24th Pass Defense is terrible. I'm frustrated with our predicability with makes us easier to stop in almost any situtation. I hope Hakeem gets better he's been a shell of himself out there. Let's play Harder and Win 24-13 Giants.

First...lolz no one is getting fired and no one is on thehot seat. We just won the Super Bowl.

Second - We give up big plays through the air. We're near the bottom in YPA but near middle in comp % and near the top in QB rating and top in Ints.

Our CB's need to do better in preventing the big plays and leave the INT's to the safeties.

Why are you guys so conserned about yards? Yards dont mean jack. We are top 8 in PA per game and second in the league in takeaways. Thats how our defense works, bend but not break and force big plays.

Looking forward to this game, should be a good one. Less pressure then the last two games so hopefully se can come out with lowered shoulders...

This game worries me. I'm concerned about the last two games being emotionally draining and this team comes out flat. Need to be at our best to beat Pitt. Hoping for a win, but expecting a loss.

Pitt: 20
Giants: 14

Hey guys, really pumped for this game. The Gmen have always been one of my favorite franchises. Just consistent and tough like my Steelers. I haven't caught more than one of your games (the opener) this year, however. How is your secondary? I imagine your defensive line is still dominant this year, no? Our o-line has been playing light years better lately (no sacks allowed in two of the past 3 games, dominant run offense) and I'm trying to gauge how much pressure Ben is going to be seeing.

The only concern i have is our team not getting enough practice due to sandy , proper preparation prevents poor performance and this is the only thing that worries or concerns me about this weeks upcoming home game.

Our secondary has been quite good (we lead the league in INT's) but we give up big passing plays.

Our D-line has been better at stopping the run than in years past (at least that's my opinion) but haven't been racking up as many sacks as would be expected (middle of the league) yet usually get lots of pressure on the QB (likely part of the reason why we've been getting the INTs).

We've been running the ball much better than last year and I hope your DB's are top notch:D

I saw this live and I knew he was faking immediately. The ref was trying to get him to walk off the field, and he kept trying to go back to the ground, even though it was evident he could walk. It was almost as humorous as two Giants going down at once, but not quite.

I Believe if we can get over the hump of this weekend and beat the Steelers , then my prediction for the season is that we'll go 12-4 , i just believe this team as a whole is good enough for a 12-4 season securing at the very least a number 2 seed in the Conference , So yes i believe the implications of this game right here with a W is very important towards the outlook of the rest of our season and playoff's picture .. just gotta get past this weekend and these Steelers and we are good to go.

Predictions for the Rest of the NFC East in week 9 ,

Falcons beats the Cowboys on Sunday
Saints Shoot the Green Birds on Monday
& Believe it or not Panthers Somehow
Upset The Skins on Sunday

Who do you have our next two losses going to?

12-4 sounds pretty darn good ... I see us rounding out at 11-5/10-6
