    Miami at Pittsburgh. Who'll win and why?

    I say Miami 17 - 10 because Charlie Batch will throw two INT's.

    Rascal Flatts is performing tonight... I hope they get boo'ed. They suck.

    Anyways, Pittsburgh will win because of their D.

    Plus Culpepper has a new go to WR--Chris Chambers--very underrated.

    i know i already put my money down for the Dolphins this week. I think yall are right saying that batch will throw a few picks. Isn't Hines doubtful or questionable? i dont remember which. either way, passing game is going to be weak so the D knows whats coming. I'm also really excited to see what Chambers can do with a real QB. should be a great game to kick off the season. GO FOOTBALL!

    This isn't going to be much of a contest. Every time I have seen Batch play in the NFL it was a joke. Pitt will grind it out on the ground, and Miami will load the box.


    Miami wins:

    24 - 17

    With Batch at the helm, I'm not sure he needs to play. If they can't run the ball Miami will take the win.:hides:

    What is this on my TV? Rascal Flatts sang what I believe was the worst music I have ever heard in my life. Country rap? :yikes: That was suckatrocious!
    Diddy was not much better.

    Is this the new school game? I am not down with all this pre-game music crap, I want stats, analysis and FOOTBALL. If I want a lame concert, I will look it for it in its proper place. Gimme Hank and can the rest of it.

    To make it worse, Diddy's lips didn't match up to what was being said.. he clearly didn't sing it. It was bad pre game music all around.

    That song by pink was a piece of crap. They'd better not be serious.

    why does nbc's pregame stuff seem so amateurish?

    I like Pink, but not in this format. Not her element.

    Maybe it is just a fluke and this is the only time we will be subjected to this.
    Crossing my fingers that things will return to normal by Sunday.

    Looks like the Steelers D picked up where they left off. Everytime I watch the Steeler's D I think of what our 3-4 should of looked like......attacking. Why did Capers would run a conservative 3-4.

    Its not just that. If they didn't have Porter they would have somebody else bringing the heat. They run alot of blitzes. When I found out we were going to run the 3-4, I was really excited, but it never got off the ground.

    I have three FF players in this game...R. Brown, C. Chambers, and H. Miller. The way things are going in this game....I'm screwed.

    Capers left a lot of questions unanswered. That is just one of the many.

    That right there was my biggest problem with Capers. He paid the bills and made his name running defenses and then when he becomes our head coach he turns over the reigns, Capers let other people decide his fate and they finally did him in. Thats why I like Kubiak, he's our head coach, but in the end he still is the guy running our offense.
