Oh yeah Devlin...18-30 245 2 tds 1 forced fumble.
What they have:
A shitty O-line that just took a hit with Pouncey being IR'd.
A shitty Run D that likes to give up yards.
You win football games often in the trenches.
If Duck Duck dodges giving the football to the opposing team, I like our chances.
Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they thought
I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be
17/27 218 yards, 1 TD
5 carries for 33 yards and 1 TD and 2pt conv.

Talk about having all of the odds stacked against you in your first NFL start. What he has is the element of surprise. There is next to nothing of film on him.
It will take a collective team effort.
San Diego is about to get hit with a collective buzz saw.
Just a hunch.
I think the biggest difference between the two QBs is that the Duck throws the ball anticipating where the receiver will be while Rudoplh waits for the receiver to get open before he throws. Duck's style works better long term in the NFL but with our unreliable inexperienced WRs there will be growing pains as interceptions due to receiver error in route running, etc .
Duck goes 18-33 254 yards and 1 TD.
I say 250yrds 2tds 2ints
Mason is the better long term prospect but Duck may be the better guy to win right now. Rudolph is being groomed to be a franchise QB. Ben went down and the weight of the franchise was put on him. You can tell that he plays with a bit of hesitation. His head must be spinning with all the film he's been watching and the full playbook.
Then you have Hodges who gets to play without all that pressure. He gets to grip it and rip it.
It's like 2 guys playing head to head in Poker. Hodges won a trip to Vegas and is playing with house money so he can be aggressive. Rudolph is playing with the rent money so he plays tight.
Hodges reminds me of Matt McGloin. He has nerve and makes plays but may not have the arm talent to be a starter.
I hope Hodges doesn't have a bunch of attempts. The Chargers run defense is bad, Steelers should run the ball a ton in this game.
I feel like Hodges could have a Tommy Maddox moment in this game. He might just wake up this offense. We'll see.
Kid graduated from high school & college both just up the road from me & graduated with my wife's younger ( very much younger ) cousin. Rooting for him big time. If there was ever a year to lose Ben to injury, this is it. I think he will perform really well for his first start. Ultimately, I don't care as long as we get the W. I believe he will contribute to that effort...
60% completion percentage, around 250 yards, 2 TD's, one int for being cocky.
I predict you won’t see much of a difference from the QB play we’ve seen from the Steelers all year.
22-33 240 yds 2 TD 0 intc 3 rushes 50 yards
JUJU 11 rec 150 yds
Totally hear you on the RUN it this game. San Diego is weak against the run and I hope our coaching doesn't do the opposite thinking they can fool em. We need a solid patient run game with miss direction and FB lead. Also that will set up the play action which in turn sets duck up for better passing successsssssss. Duck and team need to step u but don't forget that the COACHING needs to as well !
Salute the nation
If YOUR life isn't offering any smiles, you need to change your lifestyle!!! :)
QUACK, QUACK, The Duck drops back....Let er rip baby
