Here is how I see it:

If PITT wins the games at OAK & TENN, they are 4-1... despite not having Clark, Polamalu, Harrison, & Woodley... and everyone would be gushing over them (top 5 ranking).

Sure, OAK & TENN suck, but OAK gave "top ranked" ATL all that the could handle. ATL eked out a won; PITT did not.

Anyway,by most venues, PITT garners a ranking of 15ish.

But, one has to consider, as Colin did, three things:
1. PITT has been injured.
2. PITT plays five divisional games in the final seven weeks.
&
3. Big Ben.

Thus, the Steelers fall somewhere between the current ranking (15) and their possible ranking (3)... which would be about 8.
