First of all I love my Steelers I wore my gear today even thought they got beat by the Raiders. But lets be real Lets assume the Steelers win out come on win out they have 2 wins in 7 games and got beat by the woeful Raiders, how about take 1 game at a time. I Like to believe we could come back from this but I dont see it. Big Ben is our #1 problem hes only played 6 good qtrs. this year. Thats were it all starts. 2 pick 6's. He looked like Bledsoe yesterday.

if the steelers lose at home to the broncos this sunday i can safely say the season is over.so ill cross my fingers & hope for a good steelers perfomance.denver is a very good team and they are favored to win.i sure hope the steelers kick ass just like they did to kansas city.the damn turnovers are the reason pitts lost to cincy,atlanta and oakland.they should actually be 5-2 not 2-5 & in first place in the afc north.what a damn yr.....sigh.

Cincy's remaining schedule:
@ B-more
San Diego
@ New Orleans
@ Cleveland
B-more
Oakland
@Indy
@Denver
Pittsburgh

Breakdown: As sad as it might seem, (and I remember a troll picking fun because he said we would have to root for Cincy this week) the troll is right ... kind of. B-more and Cincy have to split wins Which would put Cincy's division record at 4-2. Cincy winning the division last year might just be a little blessing in disguise given that instead of playing Indy and NE, we got Miami and J-ville. I see two games on there that the Bungholes will/should win. And with road games against Indy, Denver, B-more, and New Orleans ... cincy will definitely have their hands full.

B-more's remaining schedule:
Cincy
@ Tennessee
Atlanta
Pittsburgh
@Cincy
@ Kansas City
Cleveland
@Pittsburgh
Buffalo

Breakdown: Three games on there that B-more will/should win. That means that they will need to go 5-4 from here on out, while splitting W's with Cincy (this is necessary for division winner tie breaker record). That puts B-more's division record at 3-3 or 4-2, but B-more HAS to get one win over Cincy.

This right here is really the only thing that matters. We don't have the luxury to pick and chose which games WE "need to win" ... every game for us is a need to win. One thing is for sure. We absolutely HAVE TO sweep the rest of our division. If that happens we might be able to afford one more loss. So the road ahead of us is like so: Win out in our division. Can really only afford one more more loss (and that CANNOT happen this week against Denver for division tie break/conference record).

It's do-able ... but not likely. going 8-1 from here on out is going to be near impossible with the way we are playing. The saddest thing is, I really do believe we have the most talent on BOTH sides of the ball between any team in our division.

So let's just say (gasp!) that the steelers continue on their downward spiral and miss the playoffs. What can we look at for next year that we need to adjust via draft or FA. Well, for one thing, I think it's time for Mr. Rooney to break out his damn pocketbook and go after a big name on the defensive side of the ball. specifically a LB (unless we have plans on taking one in the draft, and the way things are looking right now, Paul Poz isn't really THAT far out of reach. Not to mention all of the other good LB's available.) However, I think that going FA for LB, picking up a solid LB on day 1, we should be pretty good at LB.

Offensive line. let's assume that hartings is on his way out (which I think he needs to be). There are some darn good offensive lineman in this draft OTHER than Thomas. So hartings, or anyone on the right side.

Running back. It's obvious to any who really watches the games that Parker is just not the long term answer to this team, although I am very glad he is on it. The first round is going to be loaded with talent at the RB position and i think any player not gone in the top ten should be available to us.
Nice insight. I was brain storming this same idea last night. You are right, the key for us is to keep winning and win out the season. If cinn and balt are losing it doesn't bode us well if we keep losing to subpar teams. I guess we can just keep our fingers crossed and watch which Big Ben shows up from week to week.
