View Full Version : We didn't beat a consistently good team all year

Week 2: We defeat the Jets, they go 2-3 in their next five games (1-0 prev games)
Week 5: We defeat the Eagles, they go 0-5 in their next five games (2-1 prev three games)
Week 7: We defeat the Bengals, they go 4-1 in their next five games (1-2 prev three games)
Week 8: We defeat the Redskins, they go 4-1 their next five games (were 1-2 prev three games)
Week 9: We defeat the Giants, they go 2-3 their next five games (were 3-0 prev three games)
Week 10: We defeat the Chiefs, they go 1-4 their next five games(0-3 prev three games)
Week 13: We defeat the Ravens, they have gone 1-2 since (3-0 prev three games)

Maybe I'm just over analyzing the schedule now that the season is done, but it doesn't really seem like we beat any teams who were fully in stride when we played them. Either they were playing bad when we played them, or they went into a downward spiral after that. Now I'm not trying to bash the Steelers, but maybe some of the talent on this team is a tad overrated and only got to seven wins (hah, stairway to seven) due to catching teams at the right time.

The Steelers only played one consistently good team all year - Denver

With that schedule not getting above .500 is particularly disappointing - I agree the talent was overrated
