That'd be something good to post in their locker room this week.

Everyone must think they're due to win one.

Personally, I like us being underdogs. I think we play with more of an attitude when we are. This isn't like college where you have to impress someone to make the playoffs. We just have to win.

they are the defending Super Bowl Champions with no playoff hopes, at home with nothing to do but make life miserable for everyone else and the Saints are their first victim.

Unless Batch is playing, this could be a cakewalk like last week. Pittsburgh just wasn't that good last year (they got lucky and had a lot of help to get to and win the Super Bowl) and they're proving that they weren't by this year.

As I was explaining to LTF yesterday, this is a Steeler team that has beaten themselves. Outside of one or two games, they were not beaten by their opponents. 6 turnovers against the Broncos, 5 against Oakland, 4 against Atlanta, 5 against the Cincy... you can't win under those circumstances.
They still scare me, I don't care what their record reflects. Still think we can come away with the win, but this won't be an easy game.

That point spread is about right... it should close at Saints -6. They are the Steelers and they're playing at home.
