    The Rams absolutely smoked the Cards today 34-7 and Jared Goff threw for 424 yards, and Kyler Murray had a pretty bad game for the Cards. I was thinking this game was gonna be a loss but looking at it now the Steelers should be able to win this game. Getting to 8-5 heading into the game with the Bills the following Sunday would go a long long way to putting a stamp on a playoff spot. One game to keep an eye on next week while the Steelers game is going on is the Titans playing the Raiders in Oakland. Huge huge implications for both that 6th seed wildcard and especially the Steelers.

    The Murray kid will be a concern for certain. Hoping that Bush will have a big game keeping him from big run gains. Our secondary will cause problems for the young QB & their defense just made Goff look better than he is. Then again we have the west coast Tomlin curse to overcome. Can Duck get it done again?

    We beat rams while they smoked cards. I hope people realize that doesn’t translate to a win lol

    Maybe the west coast curse isn't Tomlin's, but Ben's...

    We must break them. Score more points, contain their mini QB and cover the middle of the field.

    With HC kliff kingsbury and his air raid nonsense, along with the worst DC in vance joseph the cards at 3-8-1 flat out suck, if we lose to this train wreck we dont deserve to be a 6 seed.....

    Keep reading that Murray has a hurt hamstring.

    I wouldn't want to be playing the Steelers defense right now. They are playing with a lot of confidence.

    As long as we don't get the playing down to a lesser team syndrome that we have had.

    But I really don't get that kind of feeling from this team. They know every game will be a dog fight, and they seem to try hard, given a lot of lesser talent on offense.

    The dreaded Steelers on the road in a west coast game against a sub .500 team. Hope it goes better than usual.

    Totally losable game, but also very winnable. Kyler Murray type is one of the reasons we drafted Bush. He has had 12 games now, unless rookie wall starts setting in and it very well could and I wouldn't blame him, but him having a good game will go a long ways to secure victory. I don't see us scoring more than 20 on the west coast road, so defense to the rescue again. They should be able to pull it off

    It could go either way but I'm fairly confident going into it. I think it's a win but closer than most seem to think.

    I think we actually won in Arizona 8 years ago if I remember correctly. I remember Mike Wallace getting a super long 80 yard touchdown in that game.

    I don't like the fact that the Cards were totally embarrassed by the Rams yesterday. Their pride is on the line this coming week after that thrashing by the Rams.

    The Steelers front 7 need to dominate this game, Arizona has a bad OL, force Murray into mistakes.

    The thing that scares me is that through the years, this turns out to be a typical Tomlin loss. Hope I’m wrong. Go Steelers

    Normally I'd be worried about a very young QB on the road but Duck already showed he can handle the road pressure in LA against Chargers. The good thing though was that half the stadium in LA was full of Steeler fans and something similar should be evident in AZ this Sunday. The bounce-back the Steelers showed yesterday against a team that dominated them 2 weeks earlier was quite impressive and hopefully instills enough confidence down the stretch with the sand lot talent they have right now to win out. OK there's that little game on the road against the Rats but by that time Duck will be a grizzled veteran with 5 whole games under his belt. Piece of (crab) cake! :rolleyes:

    If we really are a playoff team, we won`t lose the easy games like Cards and Jets. Really, if we lose either of those games, do we deserve the playoffs?
