[QUOTE=bitonti;3868069]I am getting the feeling... yes. the steelers without Troy P are a different team... it's not an easy game by any means but it is winnable.[/QUOTE]
and without Heath Miller. The Jets simply cannot cover non-WRs. Whether its a scat back in the form of Woodchuck or average pass catching TEs like Heath Miller. With Miller out, I simply don't see another guy stepping up and challenging the Jets LB/safeties. A guy like Mewelde Moore isn't all that worrisome.
Their running game doesn't really scare me, and I think our CBs can cover Ward/Wallace. If guys like Randle El and Sanders make big plays, sie la vie.
Polamalu frightens me - with him in the game, I was fairly sure that some Jet player will be carried off. Either Sanchez was going to get blind-sided or he'd throw a hospital pass and get one of his WRs creamed.
I'm a helluva lot more confident now that those two guys are probably out. The Stillers Offense isn't really all that potent these days and their one ability to attack the Jets weakness may very well not play.
Yup we can win for sure, it will all be on the QB and the OC though, especially the QB. You have to be able to make teams pay when they blitz and bring pressure. The Steelers are good but certainly not unbeatable and the Jets are no where near as bad as people have written them off to be.
