Idk about you guys but the game winning drive in the 2008-2009 superbowl will forever be my favorite 2 minutes in sports history!

I would be cautious about facing Indy in the playoffs. They are riding the "Chuckstrong" wave and Bruce Arians would probably sacrifice his children to beat the Steelers.

Beware a QB scorned though. When Ben sees the new love affair between Arians and Luck, he will explode, to the tune of 450 yards passing with 5 TDs, 0 INT. It would be more, but Wallace will have dropped a few deep passes or not gotten his feet down in the end zone.

Still...stranger things have happened!

And even if this season ends up being a failure...I'll always love the Steelers...records and playoffs be damned!
If the Steelers go 3-2 and beat Cincy in the process, it will be difficult to miss the playoffs. Are you saying they can't even go 3-2 with Ben back?

AB is coming back, too, so is Troy eventually.

Weather the storm.

And everything to lie down for if it means keeping the Steelers out of the playoffs.

Coincidence or not - It's certainly looking like that's going to be the case!
2001, 2002 playoffs, 2003 out. 2004, 2005 playoffs, 2006 out. 2007, 2008 playoffs, 2009 out. 2010, 2011 playoffs,

2012 ?

Not a big believer in trends like this when there is so much turnover. Hampton is the only Steeler left from 2001.

There are 2 Wild Card spots with 3 teams playing for them. Indy has a game up on us and the Bengals so they are probably going to get the 5th seed. That means the 6th and final spot will probably come down to who wins between us and the Bengals in week 16.

I think the following will play out backed by some Vegas probability

Ravens wk 13. L

San Diego wk 14 W. by then I think we are in must win mode and have a healthy D and Ben fully back. I think we crush the Chargers at home

Dallas wk 15. W. our D is too much for a weak Dallas team

Cincy wk 16. W. at home with a playoff feel I think we pull out a classic and fan confidence is up after this W

Clev wk 17. No way no how we lose 2 to the lowly browns

10-6 will get us a 5 seed and probably see New England or Denver on the road. Tough games but we can hang with either team.

Smells like 2005 to me .....

Crush the Chargers at home? You almost go beat by KC at home! More realistic is...

Ravens
Chargers
Cowboys
Bengals
Browns
Loss, Loss, Loss, Loss, Loss = 6 and 10 season. Skewered and Fried.
