    Ben got hurt.
    Defensive back hurt.
    Guess who's next on the schedule "Ravens" :eek:

    Leftwich sends an email to the DBs when he winds up for a pass.
    Better get the running game working.

    To win the division, gotta get thru the Ravens.
    Hopefully Troy will be back & make a few plays

    Tomlin says Troy is a big maybe!!! for Ravens. With things as they are, I fear our season is over. Losing Ben makes it really scary for sure.

    My wife broke the news to me this morning . . . not good for the Steelers.

    Then again . . . "my" team may be relatively healthy, but I'm not quite sure of what they are doing . . . the Pats seem to get a nice, big lead and then blow it . . . and then at the end lose the game in the last few seconds or make a saving play. I fear they will not be able to go all the way to the end if they don't tighten things up.

    leftwich can play in this league. he does have a slow delivery but a cannon arm. as long as the running game can give him some cover he can win. if the steelers have to rely on him as a pass happy offense its not gonna be good.

    also the guy has a heart like a lion. i remember watching him at Marshall literally on 1 leg with his linemen carrying him to the next play in a 2 minute drive, was phenominal to watch

    Took it to O.T. with the CHEF'S... Down goes Roethisberger... Down goes Roethisberger!!

    None of this is good news for our boys!! Sunday Night against the Ravens could be trouble!

    we're in big trouble. Not to rain on the parade (yes, I'm a Steelers fan) but Leftwich isn't gonna beat the Ravens with the way the offensive line collapses. He's a pocket QB, he needs time to settle in and make the pass work........and on top of that, he just throws it waaay too hard most of the time. We'll see......but I have a bad feeling if they had that much trouble with the Chiefs, it's gonna get downright UGLY with the Ravens........

    I guess Polamalu is done? I can't imagine him playing anymore, I really can't. Unless they are trying to get him super-healthy, but he's gonna be prone to re-injury the rest of his career. He's probably the best all-around safety to ever play in the NFL, but his days may be numbered.

    Didn't hear Harrison's name much last night either..........

    im with ya scotty, (steeler fan as well) leftwich is not as likely to beat the ravens , certainly not on his own, the game will be won or lost on the the performance of the offensive line

    yeah, looks like a rib on big ben, he's out, batch is inactive as well, hope leftwich holds up or its gonna be single wing with dwyer at the helm, at least he ran that in college at ga tech though he wasnt the qb. i dunno if they can activate someone off the practice squad to be the backup but thats it from what i gather.

    Actually 2 ribs and a shoulder sprain, and you can well believe that lefwich is gonna feel like he was subjected to Hitchcocks "The Birds" after sunday night.

    Suprised they didn't pick Homestead Charlie to start. I predict a squeaker win with a strong running game and one bomb TD from Leftwich. Ravens aren't 100% either.

    I shouldn't make fun of the Steelers so much. They have such dedicated fans

    All of you Steeler Fans should take a hard look at the Ravens injury report.

    We are hurting as well and our secondary is on life support!

    Yep - it's gonna be interesting, gonna say Stillers 20-17.
    I think the key is how well t-sizzle plays because we'll need to rely on the run. Also on't know how many sacks Sandwich can take. Might see Batch in there if yinz get to him.
    Cool avatar Joe, enjoy the game!

    (but not Too much...hope you hate the last 5 minutes!;))

    I've always liked the Steelers...clear back into the 1970's...Superbowl IX, etc. They are one of my "legendary" legacy football teams. But these new uniforms, IMHO, are hideous. They look like yellow jackets who've escaped from prison, or something. I don't care for them. Still like the Steelers, though. :cool:
