Thursday Night Matchup - Titans vs Steelers September 9th 2009 - Special K
In the last week, how many times do you think this video of Lendale White
stomping on the terrible towel was shown in the Steelers locker
room? Probably none, because the Steelers have a much better copy of this
video than the one I pulled off YouTube! By the way, LenDale White has
lost 30 pounds coming into his contract season so you may not even recognize him
The 2009 NFL season opens on Thursday night with the Titans at Steelers. This
was suppose to be the matchup we anticipated for the 2008 AFC Championship game.
For the most part, team rosters were able to stay in tact for both teams.
During the offseason, the Detroit Lions pillaged both teams taking the Titans
defensive coordinator and Larry Foote (LB) from the Steelers. The Titans
also lost their big man in the middle Albert Haynesworth to the Redskins.
However, neither team has lost their identity, so I expect a very physical low
scoring rock'em, sock'em style game.
For this reason, I think 6 points is way too many points to be giving up to
a quality team like the Titans. The over/under for this game is only 35
points so even the odds makers are expecting a defensive battle. I look for the
Titans to be able to run the ball effectively with a new slimmed down White and
a weaker Steelers middle without linebackers Lawrence Timmons and Foote.
The Steelers are the reigning Super Bowl Champions and are getting the respect
they deserve but the Titans are a perfect 8-0 ATS the last 2 years in September.
Look for that trend to continue.
Take the Titans plus the points (+6)
