I want to see how much faith you have in the team with Ben out hurt. The betting public and Vegas books definitely have no faith as the line went from Pittsburgh -3.5 to it now being the Ratbirds -3.5. Which in my opinion is ridiculous and if the online sportsbook I used was still in business I'd bet the game taking us straight up on the money line. Anyway what is your prediction for tonight's game?
It looks like Mendenhall and Clark will play.
I believe! Usually when teams have a star go down they rally and in this case playing at home against a bitter rival you'd have to expect the defense to really get up for this game. I also believe Letwiches biggest weakness is his long throwing motion which behind a suspect OL would seem to be a big problem. If this was last season under Bruce Arians I'd worry, but under Haley's system of short passes I'm not worried about Leftwich's weakness. I also believe the full week of getting all the snaps in practice will go a long way of how Leftwich will look this week compared to last week when he had hardly any snaps during the week. The OL will play over their head knowing they have to for this one and as long as we keep the penalties to a minimum and don't turn the ball over we will win this game tonight. I'll say 23-16 Steelers We're going to run for over 200 yards tonight with the bulk of the yards coming from Dwyer who will also have 1 TD. Heath will have the other TD. I'm not expecting a big throwing night from Leftwich and think he'll pass for a little under 150 yards, but more importantly won't turn the ball over.
