I belieive the key to the Steelers ability to have a playoff team this year will ride on the O-line. I'm not saying the other points are not valid but history tells me that teams that have the O-line play together all year and stay healthy have a much better chance of winning games. For Example - Steelers O-line in 2003-2004 had no real continuity and didn't do so hot. Steelers O-line in 2004-2005 played together almost every game and did pretty well.

We need all aspects of the team to perform, but the O-line performance has always been the key to NFL teams success or failures. It sets up the WR's & RB's for success. It keeps the D of the field and keeps them from defending a short field most of the time.
