You have no idea how bad I would like to disagree with you, unfortunately I can't. Congrats on being 2-0.

I have to agree. Every Texan fan I have talked to almost seems to be in mourning. I remember those feelings from the Kordell era. Not going to kick a man when he is down.

But, as horrid as this sounds, I hope the Steelers take this game very seriously. Last time they swaggered in and stumbled out with a beating.

Hopefully our OLBs will be at 100% and we can send some heat off the edge. I think I would blitz Haggans all day and force Weigert to play Aaron Smith one on one. IMO, that is a huge advantage for us. I also like Hampton on their center. I expect/hope/it better happen that we can collapse the right side of their line and get some pressure on Carr. And, since we were gashed for some runs against the Titans, I hope we can stuff the run.

The Texans have a pretty good defensive unit with a handful of cracks. While I do not want to go after Robinson, I surely think that Ward, El, Wilson, and Morgan can exploit Buckley.

Just keep your heads up fellas. It is times like these where you find out who the real fans are....even if they are here complaining, they ARE here. Start winning, and you'll add three times the members and all of them followed the team since they were little...30 years or more....when they were the Oilers...blah, blah, blah.

come in here thinking yall have a gimme game and you'll get beat. i wont question that because we've done it to the top teams every season (carolina's D, vick's falcons, etc). pats last year would've taken a loss to the texans if not for bogus penalties and one bad call by management (DD on a sweep while in fg range?!?!).

how are yall's backs doing though? i'm more interested in a good game than anything else and am itching to see the bus, how's he coming along? i saw the kid had a great game, but he's not what i envision the mean stealers to be. what i'd really like to see is 180lb robinson putting a lick on bettis and vice versa, those two are hitters.

We do tend to play to a different level at home( thanks to the fans and me being hoarse and can't talk after the game). Look at last year against the Colts, Vikings, and Packers. We were so close.

Maybe we can rid ourselves for the "road funk" and play respectable.

LOL one regular season game, in which Carr runs for his life do to poor pass protection and it has come to this.

LOL you guys call yourself fans?

I just watched the game again about an hour ago. Our recievers played like ****. Our running back played like ****. Our D-line was dominated. Yes Carr didn't play well either.

But I could see the poor blocking of the TE and WRs.

I hate to say it but the Buffalo Defense needs to be given some credit for the way our guys looked out there.

Carr staring at his primary reciever doesn't help either. I specifically watched for this. He does look away sometimes but not enough. I still feel that if given more protection Carr would be great.

That's true, but it doesn't take much imagination to know that Bradford is not open and AJ is doubled (at least).

I disagree that our D-line was dominated, at least not until they were exhausted because the Offense was attrocious. Our 2 new MLBs need work (some anyway) and Buchannon needs to stop backing off too much. But, the D-line was good (mostly), Babin and Peek were good, Robinson was an animal, and CC Brown....well, what can I say....I only noticed him when he was getting sacks or a short yardage tackle. I was impressed, because I was worried about him being a starter.

Banks? NOOOOOOOO! Why he is #2 I have no idea.
Ragone? Great in Europe, still needs work here.

David needs to shake his fear and find his self assurance. Being reticient in year 4 is not acceptable. Did you watch the Falcons/Eagles game and see the play where Vick stood defiant and poised in the pocket, waiting until the last second to find his target...and getting piled on (and fumbled) in the process? He didn't waiver in the face of several linemen inbound to see him crushed. Self assurance.

I realize that David has been the human test dummy for lineman NFL-wide but football isn't for cowards, or those who cower. His protection blows, he would be better served by paying the neighborhood bully his lunch money for Sunday protection. If I was him, I would go tell Capers and Casserly to go to a non-heavenly place until they give him players who know how to play on an offensive line.
It is a catch 22, he needs faith in his protectors and in himself, but is given nothing for protection so it is hard to be confident in this situation.

I am beginning to think our offensive (adjective that fits) Oline doesn't like Carr and does this lack of protection BS on purpose! :hmmm:

Ok I kinda like the 24 hour rule and watching the Steeler fans come here gets me more excited to see the next game and makes me forget the piece of **** play we saw over the weekend. Texans are 1-0 against the Steelers. Our only hope is to set up the run with the pass in this game and ball control. We don't need another 5 turnover day. Funny thing is, I was watching the game well into the 3rd quarter thinking that we still had a chance to win. As badly as we played we were still within reach. I can't see us giving 5 turnovers again in this game.

I think the better mode for Carr is to improvise and roll out...If the pocket collapses then just get on the run. It keeps the defense honest.
Offense 101 says that if you have an overly aggressive defense there are 3 solutions:

Screens to backs and receivers
Moving Pocket or roll out plays
Running plays outside the tackles

Now lets see if the coaches can figure it out.

If we can pick up the blitz and not turn the ball over we will be fine. Steelers fans are riding a great wave with Ben, but I think they feel there are still reservations whether this kid is that good.

I do think Parker is here to stay, but I expect our D to take care of buisness.

TMC
09-13-2005, 07:59 PM
Here is the reason why many Steeler fans are optimistic. We went 15-1 last season and returned all but 3 starters (Vincent, Ross, and Burress). Well, Burress missed about 5 games and Randle El actually had better numbers. Vincent started because Simmons, who is better, was injured. Ross left via free agency because he was told that Starks had the inside track on the starting job. So, the real key component of our offense, the line, brings back three Pro Bowlers (Marvel Smith, Faneca, and Hartings), Simmons-the true starter, and a young up and coming RT in Starks. This line appears stronger than the one we had last season. The Titans never really came close to getting to Ben. His two incompletions were throw aways.

At runningback, Bettis is doubtful (meaning Cowher won't dress him) and Staley is questionable (meaning IF he dresses, he will not play unless something drastic happens). Everyone else is probable. So, it appears that Willie Parker will get the brunt of the load. The thing we like, Albert Haynesworth said that Parker made it look like a high school game. They could not bring him down. Keith Bullock stated that while the defense missed a lot of tackles, Parker was responsible for making them miss a lot of them. He said Parker had a lot of power and the speed to be a game breaker.

Ben appeared amazingly confident, and we were worried before the game. He really did not have one bad throw, but like the announcers said, it was more like a 7 on 7 drill than a game. And, although we lost Burress, El has taken a bigger role. We are really high on Cedrick Wilson, who has good hands and is elusive after the catch. We also added Quincy Morgan to be our #4 and deep threat.

On defense, we allowed too many big plays against the Titans. They had a 57 yard pass (given up by our backup FS) and a 35 yard run. The defense gave up 180 yards in the first half. They really seemed flat, but all three of our OLBs were nursing injuries. So, we are hoping that our DL gets their *** chewed this week and responds. We actually have some good speed at LB with Porter, Farrior, Harrison, Haggans, and Foote. All play faster than they time. All our linebackers hit well. We are somewhat suspect to TEs and RBs. Our starting corners (Townsend and Williams) are not burners and need help over the top, but Hope has some range and does pretty well in that area. Both safeties are hitters and Polamalu can fly. There was an blurb by one of the media outlets (ESPN maybe) that said our young corners (Taylor, Colclough, and McFadden) were better than our starters but Cowher liked going with the veterans. Well, Taylor started in front of Williams last week. I hope that continues because he runs sub-4.4 and we will need him to stay with Johnson.

When you send 8 players to the Pro Bowl (Marvel Smith, Faneca, Hartings, Ward, Farrior, Porter, Polamalu, and Aaron Smith) and get a Pro Bowl NT and starting OG off IR coming into a new season, you have good reason to think your team is pretty solid.

Just messin. Makes me wonder how many people (and even Steeler fans alone knew of this Parker before last Sunday. Bettis and Staley were the chosen ones I thought.

Regardless, one silver lining is the Texans apparently tend to follow-up bombs with success, so we'll see what happens this go around.

OPEN FOR THOUGHT:

Anyone open to the idea of keeping Wells in the backfield most of the game and have him be a larger blocking back. You could actually line up Davis on the outside or motion him out of the backfield to create some odd matchups with LBs. To run inside, I think Wells might be better suited against the 3-4 and provide a little more protection that Davis, who if you watch the game tape was a speedbump for Buffalo's defense... he is the only reason they totally left Carr's arms intact.

The Texans did not allow McGahee in the endzone with multiple shots within the 5 yard line. I can only assume that Pittsburgh run blocking is better than Buffalo and this parker kid is better than MacGahee, but I doubt it. However, Rothlesbooger will get picked in this game. I am looking forward to a defensive struggle with much running. Maybe we wil see Morency on 3rd downs. that would be nice. If the Steelers can pull a guy out of the woodwork, then maybe we can too. BTW I hope our rookie center gets a few snaps also. I wish the Texans luck.

Boy Blitzburgh did you pick a bad week to come and troll...you will get no fun out of this...

I hate to repeat myself, but if we spread the field out, then I think Carr will get hit less, let alone sacked less. I'm not saying the WRs are going to catch the ball or bother getting open, but Carr then has a little more distance between him and the semi's you Steelers call LBs. I think our D played good last week, being that they were put in a ****py situation. I just was wondering how long the Texans were expecting the D to keep holding the Buffs to a FG every time the offense gave Buff a phenomenal starting spot. I think the game could be interesting, as long as the play calling isn't so blaintently predicable, I think we have *cough cough, hack hack* I'm sorry, I couldn't finish that thought. "...as long as the play calling isn't so predictable..." that's funny. We're screwed as long as we still have the same coaches. Hands down.


4 turnovers 6 sacks ... on the bright side the Texans D holds ONCE in the red zone :brickwall

This is a good point. If Pit doesnt bring in nickle you may be able to matchup Mathis with a LB. If your CB dont have good speed, Mathis may hurt you anyway, but spreading the field helps compisate for poor blocking. As for Wells in the backfield to block, I saw hi get blown away last week by Takeo so thats not the end all beat all sollution. Though a big back is better to attack a fast D.
