We need a new approach on D. Not sure what, but this isn't working. New players, new plan, something.
Otherwise, we're looking at two blowouts and 3-5 at best at the midway point.
Yeah and 3-5 is not even guaranteed. I don't expect us to lose to the Chiefs at home, but I also didn't expect us to lose to the Raiders or the Titans (kinda). 3-5 is out of the playoffs most likely. In 2005 some leaders stood up and they took every game as a playoff game, never looking past anybody, and did it Steelers style. The style may be a little different this time, but it's possible. But not at 3-5, this team isn't good enough to overcome that much, and I can't see us being any better then 3-5 at that point.
