“Trai is the next guy up and the level of expectation will not change. Using common sense, he is the third person to have lined up at that position, so we've got to do some things schematically to help him.”

The Steelers are going to have to come out throwing the ball to beat the Jags. The O line is devastated, the D line is devastated, Parker gone. Wow! Its up to Ben to win!

Hey Slick. Hope your havin a nice new year. I was very sorry to see Max Starks go down. I just hope whatever O line shows up they can protect Ben.
I don't think the R game will be a factor. TEs are going to have to block & so is Najeh or whoever.

I love it when the roaches try to effect an accent or something online to "disguise" themselves. Whatever there dude from florida. You're like a little kid writing some cuss words on the bathroom wall. To each their own.

I agree Bill that Ben will have to have a standout game for us to win. I think they will try to establish the run only because it's probably easier to run block than pass block for someone who doesn't have too many game snaps. 3 more days to prepare. let's hope they get it done.

Yea! That maggot is still crawlin around too. I think this one could be that one.

Your're right about the run blocking, but I just don't know how they're going to do that against Jacksonville with our O line. Post Gazette writer, Ed Bouchette, says he's "gotta feelin" that the Steelers are gonna pull off a win.

STEELERS ROCK!!!

Great. I think the Steelers can win. The second and third stringers are going to have to step up big time. Now Klint is out with a neck stinger, what's next? Go Steelers!
