This is the Steelers way. Make it tough on themselves. They hardly ever put up 14-2 seasons. 10-6 to 12-4 is their comfort zone. The key is being healthy, winning 5 of the last 6, and to be playing their best football of the year heading into January.

I figured 11-5 at the beginning of the season and I still think they'll be there. This team just needs to fix some correctable problems. Fix the special teams, protect the football, make sure Ben and Troy are healthy and ready to go. This team can still make a deep playoff run. Nobody out there is dominant this year. The Colts are 10-0, but have been lucky 3 weeks in a row. Luck will run out and probably in the playoffs.

Who in the AFC or whole NFL is a scary team right now? Yea we lost to Cincy twice, but both games were right there for the taking. We just need to fix a few things and we'll be right there with the best teams in this league.

It all start with Baltimore this week. Here we go Steelers, Here we go!

Agreed. But they need to correct things in a hurry.
There is no more "next week". It is now or never to save the season.

I'm keeping my fngers crossed that's Ben injury was not that serious and he will be able to play next week.

As much as I want him to play next week I don't foresee it. He showed worse signs for this concussion the previous ones he's had. On top of the fact that his previous concussions he didn't play the following game (excuse me if I'm wrong). Right now the biggest thing I think they should worry about is a replacement for the both of them to insure we will have a QB for the upcoming games.
