Hey Yinz Guys: 

Hey Yinz Guys,

It is too early to press the panic button. You may want to keep it within arm’s reach, but it is too early to push it.  What promised to be a great prime time game ended in disappointment for the Black and Gold as they fell to the Ratbirds 26-14. There is no time to mope around; the biggest game of the season is upon us and we need you here…

The Falcons come to Heinz Field in a battle of two teams who so far are not living up to expectations this season.  Atlanta is led by quarterback Matt Ryan and their super explosive offense. They are coming off a last second loss to the Bungles in a high scoring game that dropped their season record to 1-3.

The Stillers are coming off a rough 26-14 loss to the Ratbirds in an uninspiring game that dropped the good guys to 1-2-1 on the season and 0-2 at home.

This should be a high scoring game and the Black and Gold need a win and we need you to come out and cheer the Steelers onto victory.
