Rain and wind picking up at Heinz Field, where the tarp remains over the entire field and no players have been out. Kickoff is 8:40.
Here’s the pick. It’s a no-brainer, or should be. Steelers 21-6. I originally thought it would be high scoring, something like 35-13, but not with this weather.
Look for both teams to keep it on the ground and that’s a big edge for the Steelers with their two plowhorses in this weather. It does not favor Jamaal Charles as much.
Onto ME & YOU:
--- YOU: I've heard you complain in the past that the national guys doing the games on tv for the networks never come to the local reporters with questions before covering Steelers games. Is that still true and why don't they consult people like you who are in the know?
ME: You’ll never hear me complain about someone wanting information from me plus my time for free. It must have been someone else. The only one who regularly would call me was Tony Kornheiser when he was doing Monday night games. I helped him out because he was a newspaper guy and I knew him.
--- YOU: The Chiefs d-line has three high draft picks on it - Dorsey, Jackson, and Poe. I may just not be tuned in to KC sports as much as I should be, but I haven't heard much about Dorsey or Jackson since they've been in the league. Can you tell me a little about how their careers have gone thus far? Also, what is the early report on Poe's progress as an NFL player?
ME: I have to admit I do not pay that close attention to Kansas City’s drafting and how they turn out, especially when, as you mention, they disappear. Scott Pioli has done a terrible job as GM in KC since his arrival in 2007. He drafted three defensive linemen as No. 1 picks and they still can’t stop the run. Poe starts at nose tackle, Jackson at left defensive end and Dorsey at right defensive end.
