    Re: Vikings will be a true test of Steelers' metal

    I think you are onto something here Cajun ...
    If the Williams twins are clogging the middle I think our efforts against the run over the past few weeks will show up again and force Ward, Miller and Roeth to beat us ... I really do like our chances at holding them to 20 or less points, maybe even better.
    The big question is how effective our offense can be. Koren Robinson has obviously become our big play guy and gives us a threat we did not have just three or four weeks ago ... if Bennett or Moore can provide any sort of solid running game we could be able to score on a defense that has gotten softer and softer as the season has progressed ... hell, Orton threw for like 200 yards on them ... I like our chances and see a Vikes victory 24-14 ...

    Pun intended!

    But seriously, they have as much to lose as we do...their defense hasn't been the most stalwart lately...and their offense isn't lighting the world on fire. Yes, Bettis had a great game...but it was in his kind of weather...the kind of weather that won't be to his advantage in the Dome. If PWill is at full strength and we get KWill back this week, we can shut down the Steeler running game...and force Rottenburger to beat us in the air...which could be to our advantage. I think that Brad can move our offense against the Pittsburgh defense...and score enough points against them to give the Viking defense enough cushion to win the game for us...plus if the Viking defense can force a few turnovers from Rottenburger, they can seal the win for us!
