    short week, at home, primetime. Thursday favors home teams and Pit plays well in primetime(usually).

    Carolina is a good team, probably better than us. Will be a tough test for sure.

    Pittsburgh is 5th in run yards and 9th in ypa for run defense. Carolina 6th/16th.

    Carolina is a balanced team.


    Thoughts?

    This is great news for the Steelers. Ben is a baller with no-huddle offense.

    Get a win, get out un-hurt. Enjoy a long week.

    After seeing Titans go into Dallas and win by 14 (what the hell happened to that 13-3 Cowboy team a couple years ago?) it shook any confidence I had.

    If they are going to lose I hope it is like 40-0 at the half so I can go to bed but with 10 minutes left in the 4th I'm pretty sure I'll be up sweating balls.

    Not only a baller but a shot caller also. Sorry couldn't resist nieces play rap music around me.

    I wouldn't say Carolina is the better team. In a way you could say both teams are similar. They have 4 common opponents. (Bucs, Bengals, Ravens, Falcons) The Panthers won 3 of those games by similar scores and they lost to the Falcons. The Panthers defense is susceptible. Looking at their schedule, I think their defensive numbers are a bit inflated by the fact that they haven't played a very strong schedule thus far. If Olsen is healthy he can create matchup problems for the Steelers. Other than that, the Panthers are lackluster at the wide reciever position. Steelers are doing a good job stopping the run. I'm not really worried about McCaffrey killing us. But I do worry a little about Cam Newton in the run game. All in all, I think the Steelers win this one easier than people think. Steelers 34 Panthers 24.

    Thursday night games don't bother me as much as Sunday night games. Lack of sleep for the Monday workday is 10 times worse than lack of sleep for the Friday workday.

    Carolina's D is better than the Steelers D. Steelers offense needs to bring their A game. I have a feeling Cam/Panther O will score at least 24 points.

    Im not so sure about that. If you haven't noticed, the Steelers defense is playing pretty darn well right now. Carolina just got lit up by the Bucs.

    Whatever sleep I lose Thursday night will be made up in a deer stand Friday morning.

    I feel the way you beat Carolina is the same way you beat NE, NO and currently KC. Long methodical drives that end in points. Preferably TD's to FG's. You have to keep their Offense on the bench. Do not get into a shootout with them.

    I have no doubt the Panthers defense is quite a bit better than ours. As a Carolina native who watches the Panthers most weeks (When the boys in Black and Yellow aren't on), they're pretty strong. The Panthers have a tendency of starting slow, even slower than we do, but coming on strong late. We need to strike fast and often against these guys. Cam is having an MVP-type season.

    They did this last year as well on Thursday night and thumped Tennessee 40-17. There just isn’t time to game plan.

    Maybe one of the Panthers LBs can miss the bus ride out.
    I'd take either one.

    That’s why they make harnesses.

    Long drives, and keep Cam and his weapons on the bench.

    Hope they do because I have the Steelers giving 4 points to them and another bet on the over which is at 51.5 points. I think the Steelers win by a score of at least 30 to 24 which works for me.

    Did I see a Black and Yellow reference somewhere above? Isn't that the name of a some taxi cab company somewhere? Certainly not a reference to the 6 time Lombardi Trophy winning world beater franchise. :herewego!:
