    I'd be lying if I said I felt good about this game. Obviously one week is wayyyyyy too early to tell what either team is, but I have a feeling it's not going to end well for us. Luckily it's a home game so Ben and the offense should be better, but that vikings D is legit, especially that D line. The O line needs to hold up. I think Villy is going to struggle with Griffin so they might need to keep a TE in to help or chip with a back.

    Our pass rush needs to bring it's A-game. If Bradford has all the time in the world I think he and the Vikings receivers could take advantage of the secondary. I think it's improved but I also think it's gonna take some time with Joe Haden only recently being added. I really wish we had Tuitt in this game but luckily Dupree practiced today (limited) and said he's confident he'll be out there Sunday.

    Prediction:
    Vikings 27
    Steelers 20

    Here's to them blowing the Vikings out and making me look like a complete idiot :cope:

    This game will tell us if there's been any improvement in the defensive backfield at all. I get the fact you need a rush but it would be nice to see the coverage hold up once in a while outside of a dominant pass rush. We'll see

    I'm back from vacation and ready to watch some football!

    I didn't get to see the browns game but got the gist of what happened and I wasn't at all surprised.

    Typically the Steelers start the season slowly. Especially when they are on the road, at 1pm EST, in hot weather, and against a poor team. That's been their MO for a long time.

    This week they are at home and playing against a good opponent. It's still a 1pm EST game, and it's still gonna be sunny and hot. But I expect them to come out and play much closer to their potential than they did last week.

    And as much as it sucks to only come away with a 3 point win against the browns, it's still a win! They are 1-0, and much better than being 0-1 facing the Vikings.

    I expect a really good game, a tight game, and for the Steelers to pull away late and win by 10.

    27-17!

    Got to the beach today and noticed that they are showing the game here in Cape Hatteras. The first time I ever prayed for rain on a beach vacation!

    Think you guys are being too kind to the vikes and too down on the steelers. The browns I feel were a lot tougher than you have given them credit for.

    Our dee was awesome last week. We got so much pressure rushing just four, scared the shite out of them when we rushed more, and were many many plays close to more sacks and passes defended.

    Our O, basically was just James/Brown and were too good not to have Bell / Bryant / Rogers rack up yards.

    Yes the Vikes are legit but I don't think their O is anywhere near as good as ours. 31 - 14 Steelers.

    I agree. The Saints D does not give an accurate gauge of the Viqueen's offense.

    If we lose this, it will be a big disappointment.

    Steelers 27, Viqueens 17

    Bradford a game time decision for Vikes. If he cannot go, Case Keenum will start.

    I actually hate that Bradford is out. If we win, it will be "Yeah, but with a backup QB" and if we lose, "We lost to Case Keenum!"

    A lot of people will be unhappy no matter what. Lol

    No idea. A lot of it has to do with "road Ben" and I don't know why the difference is so dramatic home vs road with him

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm happy about that delay if game. I like the aggressiveness but it can bite them in the ass at times (see: Cowboys @ Steelers 2016)
