hey, we all can dream can't we? :)
Bill Simmons sees squeaking in and then making a run as a possibility

Here are my Week 5 picks for all kinds of things...

Titans (+3) over STEELERS
Tennessee's D, meet Ben Roethlisberger's badly sprained foot. Of course


People Not Counting Out The Steelers (+7) over People Counting Out The Steelers

If we've learned anything about the NFL these past few years other than "You can't win without a good QB" and "Don't text a picture of your penis to someone you don't know," it's this: Nothing that happens before Halloween really matters, as long as you don't fall into an unrecoverable crater (like 2-6 or 1-7). Right now the Steelers are 14-to-1 to win the Super Bowl. If they blow this game (and I think they will, even if the line's dropping 3 points was a major "STAY AWAY!" betting flag), that should drop to 20-to-1 and that's when it becomes a pretty good value play. Look at the AFC: New England, Baltimore, San Diego and Houston are playoff teams; Tennessee, Pittsburgh and maybe the Jets/Raide]rs are lurking; I can't take anyone else seriously. All they need to do is get in.
