If there's an avenue that keeps us out of Denver, I'm in. Not because of Manning, he sucks in the post season, but because Ryan Clark cannot playa nd that seems to hurt us worse than Troy. Thats said, we can still win the division but we just need in the tournament as they say!

At this point in the season, I just don't see our D letting sub-elite QB's pass on us. Honestly, Romo? Are you serious. That guy throws like 4 picks a half. Yes, we are on the road, but Dallas isn't a playoff team. If we are who we think we are, which is a championship contender, we should have no problem with Dallas, SD, or Cleveland. The only game that slightly worries me is Cinci, but we have them at home and I doubt we let them beat us in our house with Ben playing.

Perhaps I'm overconfident.

But I do agree, all that matters is we make the damn playoffs with a healthy QB. The rest will fall into place come January. Go Stillers.

But on a side note, I have more confidence in this team at 7-5 than I did last year when we were sitting at 9-3. Anyone else agree? (that is, if Ben can come back close to full strength)

We are not the players, we are the fans. This Steeler team is mentally tough. I think they can win out...the Ravens could very well lose 1-4 of these games. Yes We Can....win the division!

This! I am truly thinking SB if we look sharp come January!

Take em one at a time....no pushovers in today's NFL.
We all know too well how we play against teams "we should beat."
I'd sign for being a healthy wild card team right now.

Yeah, I could see the Ravens losing to the Giants, and Broncos. It's a real possibility. The Steelers got to win out and hope things go their way.

Two things I'll comment on. One, if the Ravens play their next 4 game like they did against us, they will lose all four of them.

As for Romo and his four piuck a game, I realize that having Ike on the bench might increase our potential to have an intercepotion, it is hard for me to imagine us having 4 picks in this match-up.

One other point, BIg Daddy Jerry Jones is about to cut off the checks for this team, they are going to be playing about as hard as they ever have in teir lives, and we'd better be ready for it. Hopefully they implode before we get to them.

Hopefully they don't. They only have one game before we play them and that's against the Bengals. We could use a Dallas win over the Bengals and then we need to go there and take care of business. We need to prove we can win consistently on the road.

Don't see any layups, especially the way this team has played most of the year.
There is rarely a lay-up in the NFL for any team, any time, any year....but there are certainly games which teams are heavily favored.

I enjoy the speculating as much as the next person, but I really want a win, and I really want to come out of it as healthy as possible. For the love of god, a win, and NO MORE INJURIES.
