Well, if PIT wins next week at home against CIN, we are tied record wise with CIN but have swept them this year.
Then if PIT wins against CLE at Heinz Field, doesnt PIT go as the 6th seed???
If for some wacky crazy reason we end up tied with NYJets, didnt we beat them head to head earlier this year? So we go in that case right?
I know we gave up a chance at the division today, but lets be real, provided we win both our home games, our playoff seeding wouldnt be affected by today's loss
Not excusing blowing this game, but looking for something to help console me.
If you aren't playing focused, disciplined, and with intensity BY GAME 14 then the PLAYOFFS are just a mirage.
We are a very poorly coached team, they are playing well below what they are being paid (some exceptions like Sushi, H. Miller, maybe Timmons & Lewis) I think there a lot of people who don't like the product they are seeing ARE WORRIED because we are not only getting beat BUT THE STEELERS look like utter $hit on the field. They have looked awful for 7 weeks in a row...
Love the Steelers, just don't like anything about the direction of this team...
