#Steelers CB Joe Haden (fibula) is considered a game-time decision, but based on how he performed in practice, the team believes he can go. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is also a game-time call, but should be good to go.

Even a 50% Haden is better than a 100% Coty (and he's not 100% anyway).

Be real cool to see Allen with a hat too as the surprise twist.

According to word on the street both Haden and Smith-Schuster are game time decisions.

Huge game for front line.
Cam. Hargave. Tuit. Need to wreak havoc to that NE interior OL.
Cam and Tuit are due for big days.
Time for them to earn their big salaries.
Rotate in Aluala and Walton as two pretty good pass rushers to keep the starting 3 fresh.
Watt and Dupree need to alternate harassing Gronk and getting after Brady.
James Harrison....go get HGH boy.
Vince Williams on 2 or 3 heat seeking missle hits to the middle section.

Hilton and Davis need to be right on Amendola in the slot and RBs out of the backfield.

Rush 4 with occasional blitz.
Man coverage. Redirect routes.
Zone = blown coverages. Man up boys.
7 to cover 5.
Double Gronk and Amedola on and off.
Let Brady find his third or 4th read.

Take away/ limit Gronk and Amendola and we keep them at 27 or less.

On offense.
Don't regress into a play it safe shell.
Yes. The Pats run defense has not been good.
But going back to heavy run run pass offense is not what set this offense a blaze.

Ben needs to continue keeping everyone involved.
They will double and bracket AB.
So Been needs to find JuJu. Rogers. Bryant. James and Bell out of backfield....
Oline should give Ben plenty of time with the missing pieces on the Pats Dline and LB core.
Back 4 of the Pats pretty good.....so this may be an offensive game plan to do the 1000 paper cut you see out of Pats offense.
No picks. No turnovers. This offense scores 35+.

Go Steelers.

Hence 35-27 Steelers

Hilton with a vicious sack from a LB spot. Tuitt tipped pass pic. AB Ben add to alltime great combos. Brady on the turf. Just Kick Ass, you've been waiting to do this since AFCCG.

GO STEELERS

This is the most important point.

Bill will do everything to stop the run -- we don't want to run for run sake - Take the wraps off Ben - go no huddle - Open things up

This will also open up the run game
