    Am I the only one that thinks we can win this game with the Steelers having Roethlisberger or not having him....I mean seriously the guy throws the ball like 12-14 times per game....And the Steelers will continue to run the same offense they ran last year with or without him....They will pound the ball and throw those annoying screen passes that result in a 70 yard miracle TD reception....We can win this game by exploiting their DB's....With a solid night from Daunte and the boys we will be just fine....

    I think we can win but if we do and the steelers don't have ben, the win will have no credibility.
    I want to play them at full strength,but there not so lets kick their arsses

    Of course

    We will kill them in this game, it won't even be a contest. Our team is far superior this year. We just needed an accurate and poised QB, and we made out like bandits. 35-10 Phins easy Victory.

    IMO, guys, we must absolutely DESTROY THEM.

    I mean like a good 21 point or more win.

    Since they dont have Big Ben, destroying them will at least mean that Big Ben might not have meant much.

    However, if we win by like 3 points everyone will say we were lucky Big Ben wasnt there, or else we wouldve lost for sure blah blah blah.

    If we blast them away, you can say that even with Big Ben there we would've trashed you, maybe by not so much, but nonetheless we'd win.

    I expected to win with or without Ben playing. Hell, Charlie Batch might do more damage than Roethlisberger to our secondary.

    That is my point exactly....Their "team" won the SuperBowl last year not Little Ben....IMO I think that 28 to 30 QB starters in the NFL last year would have won the SuperBowl with that team....He is overrated....

    I highly doubt that. He is overrated, but there's no way Bollinger, Frerotte, Losman, Frye, Carr, Brooks, Favre, Orton, Grossman, Harrington, Vick, Warner or Smith would've won a Super Bowl with the Steelers.

    This will be a tough game for us.There field, hostile crowd, first game of the season. Charlie Batch is a good QB, Willie Parker is running the ball good, there defense is still tough.

    Should be a great game!!!!

    If Charlie Batch is a good quarterback, Gus Frerotte is a hall of famer. I still think the Steelers will at least put up a fight, but they have no threat on offense at all.

    I meant he is good enough to run the Steelers offense. He can play, there's no doubt about it. This game will not be in the bag, like we all hope it will be.


    Though, I want it to be though:wink:

    Seriously it might be close for a quarter and then we should dominate and stay up by two scores the rest of the game

    This is the same situation when the Ravens won the SB with Dilfer....Little Ben either throws screen passes that the receiver luckily takes for a 30-40 yard gain or he throws the ball up for grabs and the receivers bobble the ball and somehow come up with it....I think this team is the same with or without him....

    are you kidding me? i personally will not disagree ben is a great qb. But, on the other hand its clear that last year with the way the o line played, willie and the bus. Any poised and controlled qb could have won the SB with them last year.

    favre? lmao he def! would have
    harrington? with the proper guidance it could be done ( detroits staff wasn't exactly stout)
    i think vick could also as well as a handful of other qb's

    Not only are you NOT the only one who thinks Miami will win. The VAST VAST majority that I have had discussions with on this board think we will win too. I just wonder where folks get there info before they post.

    This will be a good game, and with Batch I feel we have a better chance to win. All I care about is we get a win, period.

    Don't be so sure. Remember the Steelers are not just Ben, it is a whole team that works like a cohesive unit. I will not take away from the team just because Ben is not playing. Remember, Charlie Batch won 2 last year when he replaced Ben. With that said, I think we will kick their collective a*****.

    GO DOLPHINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :dolphins:

    I too think we could win this game with Ben at QB or not. The funny thing is it is now a NO win situation for us no matter what. If we win they will all say it was because Ben did not play. Ifd we lose then they will all say well they didnt have Ben. As you can see it is a no win situation but screw everyone else lets just go WIN BABY !!

    I HIGHLY doubt that!
    Carr and Smith are both great QBs. They get killed because their O-Line sucks and they haven't had decent targets to throw the ball to. Put one of the two to the Steelers and Roethlisberger to San Fran or Houston: ---> SAME THING HAPPENS! Steelers would have gone all the way while Roethlisberger would have gotten killed.
    Same with Grossman, he's a great QB as well, if he can stay healthy, of course.
    And WARNER or FAVRE??? Do you really doubt they would have won the big game with that team? U gotta be kidding right?

    The steelers defense is going to be *really* fired up for this game -- I think they're going to put the team on their shoulders and come after Miami hard, fast, and often.

    I don't see this as an easy game.

    31-10 Phins

    Easy win, we would have won it with Rothenhamburgular at qb, but it would have been 23 - 17

    Hey don't be bustin' on me.:lol: Actually I responded because I had posted earlier I'm hoping for a 31-3 route. My dad used to say "wish in one hand and s*** in the other and see which one fills up first". Don't ask me what that really means-I never knew for sure. But I got the idea that he was trying to tell me wishing for something doesn't mean s***.
    Anyway, that's what I'm wishing for and your realistic and reasonable attitude isn't going to dampen my spirits.

    It should be a low scoring game no doubt with their defenses being so good (esp. Pitt) and Daunte new for Miami and a backup (Batch) for Pitt. I'm thinking 17-10 Dolphins!!! The Pitt defense will keep it close!!!

    No

    The Steeler Defense wil come at Culpeppy with whatever they got. By the half he will be scared ****less because he wont know whos coming to kill him. By him being nervous and not wanting to get hit he will throw 2 picks.

    Steelers win 20-14

    Parker and the D have a huge game:cooldude:

    Beating the Colts on the Road
    Beating the Broncos on the Road
    Beating Seattle in the Super Bowl.

    NO WAY THAT **** IS LUCk

    Beating Cincy on the road ??? The Steelers beat Cincy because Palmer was knocked out of the game. The Colts ?? Well, if I was a Steelers fan I would call that whole fiasco serendipity.

    Yea it was unfortunate that Palmer got knocked out of the game. But the fact is that Cincy's Defense was there the whole time. We tore them up. No excuse for that. Plus the colts game we dominated them the whole time. The zebras ruined everything by overturning troys INT. We lost all momentum and energy.

    No good points.

    No luck here.

    Have fun thurs.:refuse:

    Lucky Yes You Were....

    YES you were lucky to beat Cincy....If Kimo wouldn't have "accidentally" rolled in to Palmer's knee then they would have beaten you guys all day long down field....

    YES you were lucky to beat Indy....Come on Bettis the "bust" fumbles and the luckiest man on earth Little Ben makes the luckiest tackle in the history of the NFL....

    YES you were lucky to beat Denver....Little Ben throws a ball that deflects off of Ward's shoulder pad goes 20 feet in the air and then falls right in his hands....Bailey should have picked off that awful pass and took it to Da house....

    AND YES you were lucky to win the Super Bowl....The officiating was horrible....And Seattle was a better team....

    I think the Steelers killed the Colts and it was that one mistake by the refs that caused it to be a close game. It was only by a fluke fumble that the Colts had a chance to win the game at the end.

    The Bengal game was simply over when Palmer was out. However even with Kitna the Bengals were able to stay in that game. I do not have a doubt in my mind that with Palmer the game would of been much different.
