    Do The Steelers Have A Chance Against The Patriots?

    Ole Krusty is a diehard Steelers fan just as much as a Reds fan. So I ask for an honest answer here:

    Do the Steelers have a chance of beating the Patriots?
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    If Big Ben is fully healthy (and I don't buy that nothing was wrong with his throwing hand yesterday), then I think they should be the favorites. Without a healthy Ben, I don't think they'll win.

    I think so.

    The X-factor in this game is Corey Dillon. He was out when the steelers beat the pats in the regular season. I think if they can hold him under 100 they will win. They held Curtis Martin to 77 yesterday in an overtime game.

    I think that the running games are about even, Defenses about even, but I give the passing game to the Steelers.

    I think alot of his passing woes had to do with the Glove he was wearing on his throwing hand. Rarely do you see a QB do that, and having tried to throw a football with batting gloves on at tailgates, its hard to do.

    No, they don't.

    Yeah. I have to agree. Even playing at home. I think the only way Pittsburgh wins is if their special teams or defense scores a couple of touchdowns.

    After watching the Patriots today and the Steelers yesterday, its hard to imagine the Steelers could win. The Patriots look really, really good.

    Ol' Deltachi8 is also a life long Steeler fan as well as a Reds fan, and sadly, i dont think they have much of a chance.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I think the Steelers have a chance, just not a good chance.

    I'll be surprised if the Steelers don't win. Pittsburgh is the #1 seed, not New England. There's a reason for that.

    It's not gonna be a high scoring affair. Pitts passing offense was 28th in the NFL. Where was Indy's ranked? Both teams have solid defenses.

    16-13 Pats. Don't bet against Bill Belichick when the marbles count.

    I can't see anyone beating the Pats twice in the same season.

    Plus, I don't think I could handle seeing the Steelers in the Super Bowl.

    The Bengals shoulda beat 'em twice.

    No. I predict a long winter in Pittsburg.

    Yes they can and will. Running dominant teams are the only teams with a shot at beating New England. Add in the best defense in the NFL and I see a Pittsburgh win.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: Do The Steelers Have A Chance Against The Patriots?

    There's a reason for that.

    Yeah, and it's the fact that Dillon sat out the game earlier in the year. The Pats set league lows with something like 4 rushing yards on 5 attempts.

    Anyone think that is going to happen again?

    The league's most overrated QB is about to be brought down to earth. I get sort of tired of sports fans being blown away by mediocrity. Rothlisberger isn't a 300 yard 4 TD kind of QB, which he doesn't need be in Pittsburgh, I understand, but I don't think defenses have to really plan for this caliber of player.

    Put Rothlisberger on the Colts and they would have went nowhere.

    I like Big Ben the person, and it isn't his fault he has been built up by the media, but he just isn't that good.

    And whoever said the Steelers had the better passing game is smoking crack.
