Okay, so I know that it hasn't been the prettiest season, but do we ever have pretty seasons (do you even want to see the Steelers play 'pretty' football?). But we are in a very good spot right now and should make the postseason. Anyway, for all you doom and gloom people out there, check out Jeff Sagarin's NFL rankings:

Football Outsiders also likes the Steelers

The Steelers take over the top spot with only a slight decline in DVOA. Even though the Steelers needed overtime to beat a 2-8 team, DVOA -- even after opponent adjustments -- sees Pittsburgh as the superior team over the course of the entire game. The Steelers did a better job of maintaining long, sustained drives, and only recovered one of the game's four fumbles. However, I know Steelers fans like to look for reasons for pessimism, so here's one: Take out the blowout win over Oakland, and the Steelers were actually better during the four games without Ben Roethlisberger than they have been since his return. Their average DVOA in the first four games was 32.7%. Their average DVOA in the last seven games is only slightly higher,

Steelers need to prove how good they are when they play the Pats in the playoffs. To me, thats all Im thinking about. Steelers can beat the Jets, Ravens or Chargers, but can they avenge the Pats games. If they beat the Pats in the playoffs, I will then feel they can win the Super Bowl.
