Congrats to the Steelers on clawing their way back to wild card position--if the season ended today, they'd make the playoffs. And they got there with a road win against a decent team, too. Obviously the work is not done, but it's a nice milestone, especially after the horrible 2-3 start....

Decent team? Lol... The Giants were the media darlings the last several weeks. They were no. 2 in the ESPN power rankings. We physically dominated them and shut Eli down.

I like the few sacks we had on Eli to bump up his sacked stats! Today's game truly looked like the SB champs Steelers team I remember. Finally some passion. Finally the drive and intensity. It was great to see all three phases working together. This was the first game I saw true team work even when staring down the face of adversity.

Go Pittsburgh!

They still have to hold serve if you will. I'm liking what I hear out of Big Ben. He knows that they are still leaving a lot out on the field and that there is room for improvement. If this team can get healthy and really put it together offensively, the sky is the limit. They have got some tremendously skilled players on offense to make use of.

Glad to hear it. Never good to peak in the middle of the season, not to mention that the first-round trip to Foxboro that the #6 seed may have to make is, uh, suboptimal....

Arguably the best team in the league, and SB Champs! Nice game Steelers!

Who says they've peaked? :tt02:

it really seems like baby steps every game from Cincy on.

Cincy - the O-line stepped it up
Washington - The D stepped it up
Giants - the other receivers, our other running back, and other kick returners stepped it up

Let's not even think about wild card possibilities .. this team should win the AFCN outright. We have not yet begun to peak!

I stand by my comment limiting it to "decent team" if the Bengals can blow them out!

Only if the Steelers sweep the Ravens will they be taken seriously.

I disagree. If we split with the Ravens and play well in "the loss," the Steelers will be taken seriously.

Need at least a split with Baltimore and win the rest. 12-4 should do it. Tall order, and still might not get us out of a trip to Denver, but much rather take the division than a wildcard.

Do we need to beat the Chiefs?!?!
