NFL.com writers have posted their predictions for the Steelers 2009 season. Bucky Brooks needs to be given a drug test by the league as he has the Steelers finishing third in the division with a 7-9 record.
Steelers Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw turns 61 today. Happy birthday Terry, from all of Steeler Nation.
Former Steeler and current Titans wide receiver Nate Washington is making strides with his hamstring injury, but remains iffy to be ready for the opening game versus Pittsburgh. I for one hope he plays as I do not want to hear all the crying from the Titans fans who would blame the loss on not having Washington available. The Steelers remain 5 point favorites despite the chance Washington might not play.
