Can the Jets do what the Jag's came so close to doing last week?

It's not Ben's streak,it's the Steelers team!

Everyone is waiting for him to fail...I'll take 10-1 from a rook anyday.

11-0 sounds good though,it's all about the team,and right now noone looks better.

GP nailed it. It's not Big Ben's streak, it's the Stillers. They have a very solid team on every level, save maybe punter. That said, I think the Jets will beat them this weekend. They have been playing well all season and have been under the radar because of the Pats. It's a statement game for the Jets.

Sorry, you're right, it's aSteeler streak"technically". I was just pointing out that Ben's win streak is impressive as a rookie(a record breaking streak as w all know)It is very impressive,and I'm not just waiting for him to fail just curious how others felt about HIS streak as a rookie,I know he is not winning alone.

should be a good game, but I think the matchups favor the Steelers... their run D is good enough to stop Martin, causing major headaches for Penny, whose recievers aren't good enough to get free fast enough to let Pennington make the throws he'll need to while he's chased all over the place.

The Jets D is good, but the Steeler's committment to the run and punishing combo will wear them down. Big Ben will make just enough plays to keep the Jets honest.

In Pittsburgh, I think this one goes the Steelers way- they match up too nicely against the Jets strengths for this to be a Jets win (caveat- if Pennington goes off toss what I said out the window).


edit: I really like this Jets team though... a very nice squad ;-D

Jet's recievers not good huh.....it's kind of hard to excel with Penny's dinks and dunks....and screens....short screen...and west coast slants.....the recievers are good.....he just doens't throw the long ball......

This is a great match up this weekend. This game will be won in the trenches. Jets O-line is talented enough to create openings IMO for CMart to have a good day against the steelers. Jets front 7 is a little undersized and might have trouble stopping Pittsburgh running attack. Should be low scoring and close throughout.

The Jets have alot of trouble in Pittsburgh historically... The weather is gonna be nasty so its gonna be who wins at the line of scrimmage. The loss of Abraham at the DE spot for the NYJ is HUGE. The Steelers run to the left all day long now and win the day.

Hey Smizzy is that a Santana Moss avatar??? That clown has been taking up space on my bench all year. A better question would be...Is Pennington ever gonna throw a pass downfield again or is he gonna live with nothing but the checkdowns???

Nice contribution as usual BH.........NOT :-t
