We all know that famous saying, “Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer”. Well, with that said, we bring you the week 2 edition of “Know Thy Enemy”. As we do each week, we sit down with the editor of our opponent’s fansided site for a brief interview about our upcoming battle. This week, we sit down with Craig Gottschalk, editor of Pittsburgh Steelers site,, to discuss our week two matchup:

THE JET PRESS:What is James Harrison’s status? Do you think the Jets will have to contend with his immense talent on Sunday?

NICE PICK COWHER:James Harrison is still listed as questionable. His recovery from his scoped knee surgery has been a little slower than they would like. Older guys take longer to heal. If he does play, I only see him playing a minor role in the defense on Sunday. His greatest asset is his explosiveness off the snap. If he doesn’t have that, he won’t be doing much. If he doesn’t play, Cris Carter will continue to fill in.

TJP:Big Ben likes to get that ball down the field, what do you think of the matchup against the Jets secondary? Is all of Steeler Nation praying that Darrelle Revis can’t go on Sunday?

NPC:Revis can only cover one person at a time. The Steelers have numerous fast and skilled receivers at their disposal. The Jets have a fairly decent secondary even without Revis. I see the Steelers trying to work the middle of the field more than working the corners. But I also expect to see Wallace and Brown getting open if Roethlisberger starts to scramble out of the pocket.
