Default Week one opponent

The Steelers have a great home field advantage, a big qb who always finds a way to win, a fast rb who is always a danger to hit the home run and a great safety in Troy Polamalu. What are our chances of "steeling" one on the road?

I'm scared about that game, oh so very scared!

It's definitely possible I just have alot of respect for that Steelers team, especially in Pittsburgh.

Beating the Steelers could be the difference between starting 2-3 and 1-4 this season. Unless we can pull off a win from the Titans if we loose to Pittsburg.

I'm going to say 55% chance!! The Texans have played really well historically in game one of the season.

I think that Mario is going to give that weak O line of the Steelers some fits in game one and get them a little unorganized. The main thing I'm worried about is Ben making a lot of plays on us while buying time. I don't see them running the ball all over the Texans in game one of the season. They will still be trying to figure things out.

The Steelers are not a team that I am excited to play this season, but I really like our chances in game one to play them.

I'm saying its a toss up. I think the subtraction of Alan Faneca will effect the Steelers more than they think. Hopefully, Matt Schaub and the boys can go in there and put some points on the board with what is increasingly looking like a very good passing attack.

I think they're gonna try to pick on Greenwood with screen passes to Willie Parker early and often towards his side. Depending on how we defend that will decide the game imo.

Will Willie be the same player he always has been after that leg break though?

Very true, especially when Jacques Reeves comes down to get _______(insert stiff arm or hurdle or ran over)

Mendenhall will also be picking up the slack for Willie too i'm guessing.

I think the Steelers play too well at Heinz field to let one get away. Now the Jags and the Titans are teams that I look to beat in the brutal beginning of the schedule.

I really hope I'm wrong though because I'm going to have a hardcore Steeler fan at my house to watch the game.

I would say the chances are more realistic or at least more in our favor than the last time the Texans played at Heinz Field when the D played out of its mind and the Texans got out with a Victory.

Of Course our D has improved a bit since the days when Aaron Glenn was our best (arguably) player on defense. Also Tommy Maddux will not be on the field either. I also bet we get more than the 45 yards of total offense we had that day. Does anyone remember the exact total, didnt Glenn have like 3interceptions that day and 2 returned for TDs?

I think the Texans have a good chance to beat the Steelers IF they are aggressive on the defensive side. The Steelers have some real questions with their o-line. Put the pressure on Big Ben and take away Willie P. As far as offensively, our Texans will be able to move the ball on their defense, especially through the air. Their front seven is solid, but they have the same problems the Texans have in the secondary.
