I'll think up a prediction later in the week.
Hello members and visitors! The forum has been upgraded to a new server and new forum software versions. We are in the process of tidying up and making it look nicer, but for now, please check out our two newest themes: Steel Nexus and Steel Nexus Worksafe!
time is ticking and looks like I will get the first prediction in at this late date
prior to the season I thought this is the year the Steelers average over 30 a game ,
but looks like they start in a hole towards that goal for the second week in a row to start the season ...
Steelers secure the home field opener victory 27-16 over the Vikes
amended mine prior to game start due to Bradford not getting the start
Uncertainty about Sam Bradford's availability makes this game difficult to predict. If he plays, he's going to be less effective than he was against the Saints.
Le'Veon Bell is going to get more touches this week, including catches out of the 4-wide formation. I'm also predicting more downfield targets for Martavis Bryant.
Steelers defense bends a lot, and breaks a few times.
Steelers prevail, 33-24
Yeah, Bradford makes this tough. He's a really good QB... much different team if he plays or doesn't.
Our secondary shows some grit. We get two coverage sacks. Bell has trouble getting it going and shows how stupid he was to turn down that contract offer. Run never really gets established and the Vikings out-battle us.
Steeler offense starts clicking and the Defense continues the sacks and picks. If Bradford starts, I doubt he finishes the game with his history of knee issues.
Sorry, been away the last three days.
Looks like Case Keenum is starting. I'll keep my prediction up anyway.
I dunno, same point differential, and dwins does have the Steelers score on the nose. I could give the win to either one. Either way I'm happy that I didn't win this week
I shy away from taking the guru wins unless it is painstaking obvious ...
just notices smilies no longer work hmmmm
Hmm, the smilies seem to still be in the system though, just not showing up in the post options. I'll play with the settings when I get a chance to get those back up.
They work!! Dwins, I think you should take it.......especially since you were blanked last year.
