Dolphins now better than Steelers?

It took Ben Roethlisberger about 12 hours to feel sick at home Saturday night, come to work Sunday morning, complain about the illness, get examined, and have an emergency appendectomy.

And that's how long it took the Dolphins to go from underdogs to can't-miss favorites against the Steelers.

It's true. The Dolphins now seem to overmatch the Steelers -- at least on paper.

Miami has a healthy team and a star quarterback. Pittsburgh is without emotional leader and retired running back Jerome Bettis, without a starting caliber quarterback, and with Hines Ward limited by a hamstring that can go at any moment.

Which team would you rather be?

Even though the Steelers are home, the Dolphins now seem to be superior and a safer bet to win. I don't see how anyone can disagree.

I agree with you armando. the dolphins should punk the steelers. but i think there is more pressure on them now. what excuse will they have for losing?

For the record I thought the Fins would have beaten the Steelers with Ben, as in catching them sleeping or being over confident. Ben isn't that good of a quarterback, he just usually plays within himself and doesnt cost the steeler's games. I'm more concerned now because the Steelers who win and loose as a team will be trying much harder to compensate for the loss. Batch has been in their system for a long time and just coming out of preseason getting a lot of practice is as ready as a backup could be. Now I'm concerned the Steelers will catch the Dolphins sleeping or being over confident.

I liked it better when Ben was healthy. At least then we could measure how our team stacksup. Now it's like if we win then it's because they don't have Ben. But if we loss then we lose to a team that dosent have there starting QB.

I think that if Daunte can come out confident and open the field, we could win the game. I never doubted we would have a chance to win thursday, with or without Ben playing. But my worry's always been the Steeler's D, and how Saban will figure out how to score on them.
What do you think about Charles Rogers being signed?
Can it be done, and would it be an upgrade to what we currently have on the roster?

The Dolphins winning or losing this game will come down to - like any other game this year- how the offensive line plays. If they play well, then Culpepper and Brown can do their thing - if they do not play well, nothing else matters.

This is the same BS the steelers always pull trying to make themselves the underdog. That being said i think the dolphins will be the better team. Does anyone know the actual kickoff time, id like to be spared the P Diddy and Rascal Shats concerts if possible.
