PostSubject: Week 9 Ravens vs Steelers   Wed Oct 31, 2018 6:21 am

Must game win... for the Ravens. Who would have thought that after our week 4 loss against them. If they lose they are 1-3 in the division, 4-5 overal and their season is basically over. So, time to put them away and bury them deep!

It probably will be a close game as often. We have the momentum, they have home field advantage. We will win the nailbiter though, 27-28.

Some interesting stats I saw about Ben. This are his stats since last season:
Home: 308/477, 315,09 yards/game, 7,27 yards/attempt, 64,57% completions, 24 TD, 11 INT, 7-4 record Away: 246/386, 281,09 yards/game, 8,01 yards/attempt, 63,73% completions, 17 TD, 10 INT, 9-1-1 record (only loss in Chicago in OT)

Shocking to see that since last year he's as good on the road as at home and that the Steelers clearly have a better record on the road.

This game will be won or lost at the line of scrimmage. Our O line must keep Ben up-rite and open holes for Connor. WRs must fight for receptions and Connor must run angry like he has been doing.

The D line has to be in Flacco's face all damn day. Stop the run on the way to the QB.The secondary has to keep everything in front of them and make the play when an INT presents itself. Force turnovers.

If we do all these things I believe we win by 3.

This is a revenge game. After tying the ratbirds at halftime only to allow them to become victorious in the 2nd half was ridiculous.

This isn't the same Steelers team as it was a few weeks ago. Ratbirds are the same team and they're due for another solid beat down. I think this game is close at half time, but not at the end.

Steelers run away in the 4th.

34-13

seems the Steelers start games like they don't have a clue whats going on until well into the 2nd quarter.

Somewhere, somehow, that has to change and I'd really like it to change this Sunday. There really isn't a reason for it.

What I'd really like to start the game with is a defensive TD, then a punt return for a TD, and then watch Conner run off a nice 45+ yard TD before Ben even has to throw a pass.

Will there be unicorns? I'll settle for us getting out in front and staying there.I'd also like for the game to be less stressful than in the past. By that I mean we win by a large margin.

Steelers blitzes are working statue like Flappo not happy, Conner being the grinder and opening up the passing game.

Steelers no longer seeing red when driving inside opposing 20


The Steelers rank No. 2 in red-zone touchdown percentage, finding the end zone on 15 of 20 trips through seven games – a 75 percent success rate. Only the Cincinnati Bengals, at nearly 77 percent, have done better.

In 2017, the last year under former offensive coordinator Todd Haley, the Steelers were No. 18 in red-zone touchdown percentage, converting at a 53 percent clip.

https://triblive.com/sports/steelers/14238574-74/steelers-no-longer-seeing-red-when-driving-inside-opposing-20


7 games into the season the Steelers offense, already is so much better then last years offense and they are minus one Pro Bowl RB. Rest of the offense is basically same from last year.

got to give Fichtner a big thumps up so far this season, doing in half a season what Haley was trying to do in the last 6 season.

Both of Ravens starting OTs out for Week 9

Stanley is dealing with an ankle issue while Hurst will miss his second consecutive game with a back injury. . Backup left tackle Jermaine Eluemunor will presumably make his first career start, with Orlando Brown Jr. making his third career start

looks like steelers blitz defense will be licking their shops with this news.

TJ Watt and Bud Dupree better be licking their chops right now. With both of the starters out these guys had better come out and produce. If you get stonewalled by the starters, I get it, but the backups? Better be out there whooping their asses.

Prediction, Steelers over Ravens today. Running game takes off (I know DB's banged up so expect passing but I think Conner will shine).

This game has a different feel than the last match up. Right now we look confident on both sides of the ball and Connor is a beast.

Ben's got to get some touch on the dump offs. He fired that one to McDonald and under threw Connor on the other one.

A good half but really shaky end of the half. Was glad to get it to halftime.

We need a TD to open the 3rd. We were getting pressure on Flacco until we stopped. DuPree should be eating their LT's lunch.

AV so far has been manhandling Suggs. Hope he keeps it up.

Someone other than Conner needs to step up and make some plays.
