Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren has seen this match-up before. No, this isn't exploiting the obvious storyline of this game (although Steelers fans know full-well the griping of the Super Bowl XL runners-up). Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has seen first-hand what a hot quarterback can do to a great defense. The best question is whether Holmgren will even bother to try to unhook the plow currently affixed to Shaun Alexander's backside.

Despite potential legal troubles for Steelers <ahem> No. 2 RB Najeh Davenport, the Steelers will still be thin, as WR Hines Ward will miss his second consecutive game. Nickel back Bryant McFadden is also out with an ankle sprain, and SS Troy Polamalu is questionable as of Sunday morning.
