The Steelers blew the doors off of Heinz Field last week against the Chiefs and hope to do the same against the Jets.
Throughout the season Still Curtain will team up with the opposing team from the FanSided Network to get a little intel and perhaps do a little predicting and/or trash talking for the upcoming game.
Today we have Luis Tirado Jr. of The Jet Press, the New York Jets-themed site from the FanSided Network. Luis is here bringing us the info on the rough start for the Jets and the feelings about head coach Todd Bowles. He also provides us with a prediction for the game with score.
In the NFL when things aren’t going well fans are either for firing the coach or benching the quarterback, or a combination of both depending on the situation. Where do the majority of Jets fans stand so far a quarter into the season?
"Most want the benching of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in favor of Geno Smith. A quarterback can’t throw nine interceptions in just two consecutive games and still be worthy of starting. Head coach Todd Bowles is fine, people just want to see change at quarterback above all else."
What’s the impression of former Steelers DT Steve McLendon so far?
"McLendon has been awesome so far. To date, he’s totaled nine tackles and two sacks. I love his ability to stuff the run and bring a nice dimension on defense. I heard of his tough as nails rep when he was with your Steelers as so far, he’s been a solid addition for the Jets."
Does Brandon Marshall have a shot at winning Antonio Brown’s Rolls Royce?
"I said it before when the bet occurred… no. Antonio Brown is easily the best wide receiver playing today and as much as I love Marshall, he’s not going to get anywhere close to the final stats Brown totals this season. Sorry Jets Nation, Brown will win this one!"
The biggest thing that has burned the Jets so far has been giving up big plays. Unfortunately, that’s one of the things the Steelers offense does well. How does the Jet defense prevent big plays from the Steelers offense?
"It’s tough since cornerback Darrelle Revis more than likely won’t be playing in Week 5. The Jets’ defensive secondary is a mess and unfortunately got them, they’re going to get burned like you wouldn’t believe by the Steelers’ offense. I predict another embarrassing game by the Jets where Big Ben will probably throw for three, probably four touchdowns in this Week 5 matchup."
What is your prediction for the game with score?
"Steelers win, 35-10"
