Starting out 1-2 does not bode well. Add to that the Steelers recent history of making the playoffs for 2 years and then missing the playoffs every third year (2000, 2003, 2006, and 2009) and there are some patterns that are being folllowed
We didn't win the Super Bowl last year. Both of those teams did, if i'm not mistaken.
