Every 3rd Season?
 
Has anyone else noticed how the Steelers have stunk every 3rd season since the 2000 season?? Let's break it down...

2000 - 9-7, no playoffs

2001- 13-3, AFC Championship game appearance

2002 - 10-5-1, divisional round

2003 - 6-10, no playoffs

2004 - 15-1, AFC Championship game appearance.

2005 - 11-5, Super Bowl Champions

2006 - 8-8, no playoffs

2007 - 10-6, wildcard round

2008 - 12-4, Super Bowl Champions

2009 - 9-7, no playoffs

2010 - 12-4, lost Super Bowl

2011 - 12-4, wildcard round

2012 - 2-3 start, how does it finish?

Just some food for thought, discuss...

Yup, thats the trend, but I still have faith.
If the Seahawks can reach the playoffs at 7-9
we can too. :-)

I actually noticed this also! I thought I was the only one. I was driving by myself the other day and thinking about our current situation and this three-year trend dawned on me. Let's hope that it stops here and we can turn this one around unlike our '00, '03, '06, and '09 incarnations.

After careful research, I think I've stumbled upon some corresponding events in those years which may have had an influence on the Steelers' playoff chances.

2000 -The Pyrenean Ibex goes extinct
2003 –The Concorde SST is retired
2006 - Pluto is demoted to "dwarf planet" status
2009 - Longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century



I think I may be on to something...

...or ON something.. (I always get that mixed up...)

BUMP

Not to say I told you so, just to see if anyone can shed some light on the issue.

Obviously no one could have known we would have lost Ben for 3 weeks just when we were getting into a good rythem. The offense actually looked alright last night (after the first quarter anyway) but stupid errors killed us, see Antonio Brown and the 30 yard return that went horrible awry.

What's wrong with Pittsburgh???
