    Only undefeated team in the NFL, your PITTSBURGH STEELERS! Wasn’t pretty today but Seattle would have loved to win ugly today also.

    Can't believe Seattle lost to the Cardinals.

    I can believe it actually. "Hero Ball" was not going to be sustainable for too long with Russel Wilson. Never mind that though, Seattle's Defense is horrible. The question now becomes as to how much can Jamal Adams fix once he returns?!



    Guess that is something we will have to wait and see.

    Not sure how many of the 72 Dolphins are left but they had a tradition that once there were no undefeated teams left they would toast it. At least we made them wait another week.

    Glad we're not saying, "Can't believe we lost to the Titans."

    Feeling real good about this season...... If we take care of business in the division, then the rest of the schedule is gravy, with the bills being the stiffest challenge (and they nearly lost to the jets)
    After that it's the jags and the rest of the putrid nfc east

    I can the Cardinals aren't that bad.

    Seattle has a trash defense, Wilson had a bad game with 3 INT and they lost in OT, so you can see that Seattle is very good on offense.

    The Bills are in freefall. They lost huge to the Titans and then to the Chiefs. They beat a Jets team with the following drives: FG, Fumble, FG, FG, FG, FG, Missed FG, FG. They have a good defense and a good offense, at best. They have some skilled players, but not enough chemistry or cohesion to be a dangerous team. Could we beat ourselves and lose to them? Absolutely. But like has been said already, the only team we should fear is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    You could be right. Tampa Bay definitely seems unstoppable right now. However, their biggest enemy might lie within.



    If not, only major peer competitor would be the Green Bay Packers. Yes, Green Bay did lose to them but that team still has a QB that can go toe to toe with Brady in Aaron Rodgers. All Green Bay needs to do is limit their mistakes.

    I think they will have some inner turmoil coming. BA knows his job right now hangs on Tom Brady's happiness and he is saying the right things but his history has shown he will only take so much.

    His bs today about Brown being an insurance policy and it wasn't Tom who wanted him signed is crap. The bucs had two stud TE's already on the roster and they made a trade with NE for a retired player who hadn't played in a year and who had begun to decline due to injury for Tom. Tom likes AB and low and behold they get him. Tampa's fortunes are tied to Brady and Arians will lose out before its done.

    Seattle can if they hit on all cylinders on offense, and don't lay a complete turd on defense.

    Rams have some defense, but can Goff out dual Brady doubtful.

    Saints maybe figure it out, and Drew Brees old booty can find some old magic, plus Sean Payton is one of the better NFL head coaches.

    Cardinals maybe, Kyler is playing at a high level, but playoffs is a whole new level.

    I still think Green Bay is better than they played against the Bucs, Rodgers had a turd of a game, he's better than they played

    Forget anybody in the NFC East

    Maybe Steelers Revenge tour (take down Bell, Brady, and AB) , Steelers are still getting zero respect, all NFL radio is Bucs, Bucs, Chiefs, Chiefs...

    Steelers might not be the league's most talented team, but they seem to play the best as a team, this is the most unselfish Steelers team I have seen since maybe 2008.

    There's already been a blueprint established to beat them. It's pressure on Brady. It's not going toe to toe with him. It's about the opponent's defense, not offense. Tampa's defense is good, but you can score on them. It's always been about stopping Brady...still is.

    You're coming at this from the wrong side. It's not about the opposing qb outgunning Brady. It's about the defense neutraluzing him with pressure. He was teflon in NE. He's cast iron in Tampa. Two teams have pressured him over 20% of the snaps this season. Both beat him. His numbers dropped to pedestrian levels in both contests. The rest of the teams were less than 17% and all lost. That's the blueprint. And that's also why we're the NFL's biggest mismatch againt the Bucs.

    The secret to Brady is getting pressure, he lost to the Bears because of this reason, and they Bears offense scored a whole 3 points on the Rams last night.

    Yes!! You did, but going to be tough for anybody in the NFC to have the defense to limit and the offense to keep up.
    Plus Tampa has WR who aren't healthy.

    It's even a moot point to even care about Tampa, we don't play them and if we do, it's for a trophy, and any of us will take that matchup!

    But, Brady can still throw..I'm sure the Patriots fans wish he was back up there. But, I think that is why he left, he knew the surrounding talent was wasn't there like he once had and had to go to a place where he would have more play makers. He knew he could no longer beat Mahomes with what he had there.

    Okay, gotcha. ;)

    I agree with everything you said and will add one thought. I think he also left NE because he wanted more say. He chose a team/coach that would listen to him and let him run the show. Dark Hoodie wasn't going to do that.

    So you honestly think that the way to beat the Bucs is in a shootout against Brady? They average 36 points in victory and 21 in defeat. 21 points is not a shootout. The way to beat Brady is not by tasking your offense to put up 37 points against their defense. That's insane. Their defense is averaging giving up 20.3 points a game. It hasn't given up more than 34 points all season. Unless you tell me they haven't played the best competition yet, and that their numbers are skewed because of inferior competition, then your assertion is wrong.

    I've seen him unravel a few times when he has to get up off the ground.
