no..cause the difference between the 2 teams is that the Pens were dogging it to get their coach canned. Then they 'miraculously' turned it on after the change was made.

I don't think that the Steeler' players are trying to get Tomlin fired...

Nothing surprises me anymore, but with the injuries we have, the deck is stacked against us.

Wouldn't bet my dog and lot on it, but until we're mathematically eliminated from a possible postseason berth, anything's possible. I'm just going to try to enjoy what's left of the season however long it is. Next September is a long ways off and I'm not a baseball or hockey fan and I've completely lost interest in the NBA over the last few years.

I've been saying during this losing streak that I believe the Steelers can (not will, but CAN) beat some of these "top" teams in the L, IF they wanted to. They don't seem to WANT it right now.

If Tomlin can get these guys motivated and run the table, a can guarantee nobody wants to see Pittsburgh in the Playoffs.

There's not too many teams better than this one when they're at their best...

I will always believe as long as it is mathematically possible.

With that said...yes we have lost to Oakland and Kansas City. Yes that is completely unacceptable. At the same time, we have socked it to San Diego, beat Denver in their house, and knocked off a hot Minnesota team.

This team has shown a tendency to either run hot or cold. Look at the schedule:
W
L L
W W W W W
L L L L
........... is it more W time? How about 4 W's. There are no more "juggernauts" we have to face. I really feel like we are going to destroy the browns tomorrow. I don't care if we lost to KC and Oak....it's still the Browns. We all know it's almost impossible to lose to them.

GB and Baltimore are home games. While that doesn't mean everything, it certainly helps. Finally defeat Miami and we give ourselves a shot.

Then it's a matter of getting a little lucky.

I personally don't think so, but anythings possible.

Can it be done? Yes.

Do I think the team has it in them? No.

You're not a hockey fan? That's a shame. :-/

Only thing that makes me believe we can make the playoffs is a victory tomorrow night. Beat the teams your supposed to beat.

The Steelers have a chance to make the playoffs. As long as they have that chance, I will believe they can do it.

We can win out the rest of the season. It starts Thursday night against the Clowns. I don't think we are going to lose to Cleveland.

The only thing foolish is your thread. Why couldn't we? Were you not around for the '05 season? It's not over until it's over.

Think before you post.

Yes, as long as Troy Polamalu is healthy.

It is my fondest dream to wipe the smug smiles of the Bengals fans faces.

Believe.

Of course, but I don't think this would be a very good forum though if people said no.

Absolutely as long as Troy comes back 100% and stays that way during the playoff run!
