    Default Steelers -3 point favorites over Broncos.

    I like it. I expected it to be a little higher but when you factor in the Broncos coming off a loss and playing at home it sounds about right.

    I guess the media still isn't sold on McDaniels and the Broncos. Time to finish off what the Ravens have started.

    We're 3 point favorites? Not -3 dogs?

    Playing in Denver, that would put us at 6 point favorites for the most part on a neutral field. Seems kinda high considering Denver just had their first loss this past weekend.

    For what it's worth, I woulda picked a scratch. I don't know if it's confidence in the Steelers all of the sudden - they were the NFL dogs for a while or everyone is still thinking the donks aren't the real deal - or both.

    I never thought the Donkos were the real deal to begin with. Not with Orton as the qb- but I do have to admit they are much better than I thought they would be.

    I do not think that this is good.

    Have the Steelers in the Tomlin era ever won on the road when they are 3 point favorites? I do not think so.

    We have to lay 3 along with the Ravens against the Bungles. For division leaders playing at home they aren't getting much respect with the Steelers and Ravens coming into town.

    I'd rather be the underdog with this game. I kind of feel the disrespect the donkeys are getting will fuel their emotions. i'm still not sold on Orton but, they do have a better record than us so, hats off to them.
    I wish they would have beaten the Ravens.

    Let's not forget Mitch Berger - the ideal player for those defences who like to start at their own 40 yard line. Dress 'im up as a hot dog and let's go!

    Couldn't agree more. Weird as it sounds, he could be one of our biggest weapons if they start him. I wonder if that is the plan?

    The line really means nothing unless you are betting on the game.

    Not sure that the line means anything but the Steelers better be prepared emotionally for this game cause it has 08 Tennessee Titans type of game written on it. While we are coming off of a bye week instead of a big win this year, the bye week can form some complacency. The Broncos are coming off not only their first loss of the season, but they got their asses handed to them by Baltimore. The chip on their shoulder is big right now to prove that they weren't a fluke and they've got a home field that's been historically tough for the Steelers.

    This game is going to be more about attitude, energy and intensity. the team that brings that the most is going to win. While the Broncos are likely to be really pepped up for this one, the Steelers can most likely start casting doubts in the Broncos minds and curb momentum by jumping out to an early lead, but the Steelers need to really match and exceed the Broncos emotion in this one
