The London game and the stretch thereafter is worrisome, but playing the AFC East and a slew of third place bums like the Lions, Raiders, and Titans should do wonders for the O.

Split with the Bengals and Ravens, lose to the Pack and Pats and maybe one more (Chicago or Minny?).

11-5 or better is absolutely attainable.

It was in no order yet. Also, the Lions are 4th place. I say we will have more trouble with the Bears stout D than the fudge packers.

The Steelers must have a hell of an offseason (drafting&freeagency) to make 10-6. This team has NO run game,the offensive line cannot run block and C- running backs. Heath Miller will miss half the season and he was the only constant offensively. I will be happy with 9-6 but wouldn't be shocked with 8-8. We saw first hand what Tomlin was able to do when times got tough and it wasn't impressive, times look to be tough in 2013 as well

Good post. Very easy schedule. Definitely make it to the playoffs. Im just worried about the Raiders. :wink02:

Ravens are going to drop off hugely next year without Ray Lewis' leadership but still put up more points than Steelers due to a more effective offense. Their defense fell from 3rd to 17th with Ray Lewis out for most of the year. Can Roethlisberger outduel Joe Flacco? Doubtful. But the defense can still bail him out.

Bengals win the division as they assume the Steelers identity with a dominant front 7.

Steelers make a wild card as they assume Bengals identity of a team that bets it all on less-than-elite quarterbacks.

Browns will still suck.

Bengals 11-5
Steelers 10-6
Ravens 7-9
Browns 5-11

For me

Steelers 10-6
Bengals 10-6 *Toss up on who wins, other is WC*
Ravens 8-8
Browns 6-10

Very easy schedule shouldn't be comforting to anyone

Exactly. This is the Steelers, after all. For some reason, they play better when they have a tougher schedule.

I'll take that bet.

My prediction: 19-0.

The success of the 2013 Steelers depends on the play of the Defense and the improvement of the running game. The Defense will be it's usual self, but the Run game is a question mark.

If the Run game steps up, this team wins more than 10 games.

If it stays down, another 8-8 campaign. Let's not forget who is behind center for the Steelers.
