WHAT?


WHERE?


WHEN?
4:25PM EST on CBS

WHY?
Because, sadly, there are still 9 games left in this nightmare.

HOW?
Well....

Steelers will win if....

1. Steelers knock Brady out early...


Obviously, this is the easiest road, but not necessarily the most ethical. Although Im sure more than a few Steelers fans wouldnt mind seeing Woodley's kick Brady's clean off in the first quarter.

More realistically...

2. Steelers dont let Brady get into a rhythm


The good news? Brady hasnt really got into a rhythm all. His weapons are not dependable and he clearly doesnt have much faith in the players around him. Gronk still isnt 100% and their running game really isnt clicking. Add the fact that Sebastian Vollmer is out and their backup will be dealing with Woodley, and Woodley should....SHOULD....have a nice game.

The bad news? Smart money is on us being the team that helps Brady find his mojo again. We tend to suck against mediocre and/or struggling QBs.


3. The Oline gives Ben time...

Chandler Jones is a very good pass rusher and they use their LBs well on blitz packages. The OLine is going to have to be on their toes, and whoever is playing LT is going to need help.

4. Haley doesnt go full retard...

Haley's playcalling was abysmal last week. Its been abysmal most of the year. He certainly doesnt deserve all the blame, but he seems just as bad as Arians at situational playcalling and not adapting during the game. He tries to force things that arent working, and its getting old. The players have to execute, but Haley needs to adjust and put the offense in a better position to succeed.

5. For whom the Bell tolls...

Without BIG Vince in the middle, the Pats are 31st in the league in rushing yards allowed, HOWEVER they arent quite as bad against the run as that makes it seem. Still, if we cannot establish some semblance of a running game against them, we arent going to fair very well. This will help with number 3 by setting up play action and negating the blitzes they like to send.



Steelers will lose if....

1. Brady goes Gay...

No...not that gay....



Thats the one. "Big Play" Willie Gay has looked semi decent this year, however, he has struggled mightily against the Pats throughout his career. If Brady exposes him again, come next week, the anti-Gay slurs will start up again. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

2) Belichick makes LeBeau "kiss his rings"...

As much as we love LeBeau, he has been BB's beyotch for years. Even in years when our defense seems dominant. This year, our defense is merely decent, but then again, so is the Pats offense. So...which unit will step up? Smart money is on the Brady Bunch.

3) Steelers get off to another repulsively bad start...

Our biggest issues this year has been falling behind early. We seem to get going either at the end of the 1st half or beginning of the 2nd half, but by then we have already dug a hole we cant get out of, because even when we pull within striking distance, we make some stupid mistake that ends it for good.

4. Ike struggles against another no name receiver...

Justin Gage, Louis Murphy and Johnny Knox. What do they have in common? They all schooled Ike Taylor at times....Gage actually did multiple times. The point is, as good as Ike CAN be, he has struggled against some very average WR talent. He SHOULD shut down a guy like Kembrell Thompkins, but Ike has shown before that even some no name can get the best of him.

My prediction...
Pats 31
Steelers 20


I think we will start off better, but ultimately, I just think we will be outcoached and outgunned.

That being said...

I'm picking NE 45-10.

Predictions: Ben sacked 6 times, 2 of those sacks result in lost fumbles. I'm also predicting 2 ints, 1 of them caused by a 'dropped deflection' from Sanders.

After this loss, Todd Haley is given a promotion to Asst HC.


/sarcasm


I really do think we are going to lose and no, I don't think it's going to be pretty, this game only matters if we are going on a 9 game winning streak and looking at our schedule I think there is at least 5 more losses to come.

What do you mean?

The only reason for optimism in this game is NE's offense hasn't been very pretty, and it is fairly conventional. Not too worried about Tom Brady taking off for 93 yards. The pass rush may show up, and outside Gronkowski it's not a scary group of receivers. Grandpa Lebeau hopefully presses and they hit Brady a little.

43... I really really hate doing this, but.....

1st pick... borderline because you can tell she is wearing a thong.

3rd pick needs removed - not wearing a top.

And last gif... bit too, umm... you know! Too sexual.

She is wearing a top. You just can't see it because she's hiding it with her arms. Smile

The last gif, just a chick eating a banana. Maybe she's hungry. Nothing to see here.

What I want to know is who the girl is in the first picture.

Because..Damn..

If you take the body of the first girl, the flexibility of the 2nd girl, the skin tone of the 3rd girl and the talents of the 4th girl... Very Happy

Two of the most scrutinized teams on FF (What do you know. We've dominated the 2000s). I respect the Steelers too much to just call it a wash no matter how much you guys have been struggling this year. I think it's gonna be a really good game that can go either way. Good luck guys...

Indeed and I agree on all aspects. I wont be one bit surprised if the Steelers win. Pats have struggled plenty as well... difference is they've made the plays to win those close games and we've made the mistakes to lose them!

Losing Wilfork is a big blow for them. I have no idea who will be able to suit up on the OL for the Steelers. If they can get some decent blocking Bell could have a real nice day.
