Wink the steelers?really?

All I've heard about is the 9ers being so good because they shutdown the Steelers.but is anybody watching this game?their d is suspect and rothliesburger is still limping around (although he's in better shape than he was in SF).so if this is what the 9ers call a "great team" then they'll be in for a real surprise Saturday.and I hope their fans read this so i can be talked about on their forums too lmao.

They are on a 3rd string RB, and 4 def. starters are out. Ben R can barely move.
