Opponent's injuries could help in coming weeks

Atlanta DB Mathis out for season. Well, our season of lucky breaks just received another one. This will help come a couple weeks from now when we play them. As will...

Strahan to miss 2-4 weeks. We can hope it's longer than a couple weeks and he's out against us.

And on the other side of the coin, I'm hoping the Steelers play the cold dead corpse of Ben Roethlisberger.


Ben's arm is strong. But the rest of him is tired. Pittsburgh, at 2-6, would probably be better served to play Batch and let Roethlisberger breathe a bit.

I completely agree. Ben is mentally tired oddly enough considering the abuse his body has taken over the last few months. They start Batch and we've got no film on him, he's fresh mentally and physically, and he's a pretty good QB to boot.

I think Ben's brain is still scrambled from the car accident. But we still can't take this game for granted. It's most likely NOT going to be a gimme.

No, you're right about that. Cower is a GOOD coach and will try to match up defensively to make it easier on his offense

if we can force them to resort to throwing the ball and apply a decent pass rush, the game won't even be close..... even if cowher is the coach of the opposition or not....
