I posted my score game guess in this thread accidentally but don't see a "delete post" option. The enigmatic period is the next best option.

Apples and oranges. Much more talent on this team.


I am starting to question the idea that this steelers group is all that talented. I think we have some elite fantasy talents and that drives the narrative. Can a team without an elite corner, edge, safety or TE can be considered all that talented? Oh and the Steelers can't punt or return kicks and don't have a 3rd wideout.


Hopefully Washington develops over the course of the season. Ben getting dialed in on the deep ball should help Washington's impact.

We aren't going to be a serious threat if we can only outscore teams.

After 2 games, the defense is...

24th in Pts/Dr
26th in TOs/Dr

That combination will not get it done.

As others have stated, getting Haden back will help.

Maybe Thomas helps eventually.

Quote:
The only difference is that the Chiefs actually have a running game. Andy Reid's crew is averaging 4.5 yards per carry. That's 10th best in football. Their back, Kareem Hunt, led the NFL in rushing last season.

Meanwhile, Dirk Koetter's Bucs have the worst ground game in the league through the first two weeks, averaging a meager 2.7 yards per carry. Koetter's offensive players barely run the ball. And he hardly seems to care.

Why should he? When Fitzpatrick has completed 78 percent of his passes to the tune of at least 400 yards in each game, the run game hardly seems necessary.

"People desire to be balanced," Koetter said. "But they desire winning more so than being balanced."

The Bucs have done that twice in a row to start the season. In fact, if they beat the Steelers on "Monday Night Football," they can boast wins against the defending AFC North, NFC East (Philadelphia), and NFC South (New Orleans) champions to start the 2018 season. That would be three straight wins with a backup quarterback, against three clubs who combined to total 37 regular-season victories last year.

Impressive. Even more impressive when you consider it has all been done without even the whiff of a run-game threat.

I expect the Bucs find their run game Monday night. I expect they don't miss a beat in their passing game Monday night either. I think the Steelers defense is in real trouble going forward. The schedule isn't going to allow for easing in to games while still shaking off the rust from slow starting. As much as I'd love to see the Steelers go into Tampa and put the NFL on notice I don't expect them to do much of anything but infuriate fans even more with a slow pathetic start and eventual loss that confirms the continual drop off. I hope to be wrong.

One dropped pass from the AFCCG.

I was at the 51-0 loss to the Browns, it was like 85 degrees and a light rain all day.


That was the day of grandmother, Nunziata Anastasio's, wake. I flew in from New Hampshire morning of the wake as my fantasy draft was back in NH the night before. My brother Tony picked me up at the airport, we said to each other, "What do we do about the game?"

My uncle Oney Ferrari, per the request of his nephews, brought a TV into Nied's Funeral Home in Swissvale (same place where my Mom was laid out two years ago). Charlie Nied set us up in a back room and we watched the whole debacle.

God was pissed that day!!
