Personally, I feel strongly that if we can get past Arizona and Seattle and go 5-0 into the bye week, we will be well on our way to another 15-1 season. The one defeat I see potentially is against New England. That may be me actually being a homer, but I just don't see anything that we can beat against the RatBirds or the Paper Tigers from Cincinnati.

I know, I know... before the season started, we all said that we should be sitting at 4-0 or at least 3-1 after the first 4 games, but I just see such control on both sides of the ball that we stand a GREAT chance of 15-1 this year...

Just my opinion!

I don't know. I am alittle worried about this trend:

The Steelers won their first game by 27 points.

They won the second game by 23 points.

They won the third by 21 points.

If this trend continues, by the end of the season they might just barely be winning their games!
God bless Steeler Nation

I think it is 108... or close to it.

You know, each season you hear about teams compiling gazillions of passing yards and yards of total offense. Certain players, and we all know who they are, are fantasy stars week after week for their gaudy stats. The Steelers are seldom mentioned among such high-flying offensive fireworks....and yet they are virtually always in the hunt come playoff time.

Here we are at Week 3 of the season, the Steelers are widely considered to be one of the top 3 teams in the NFL, and some of those high-stats teams are notable for....nothing much, other than gaudy stats.

Even in the 70s, numbers were not the big thing with this team, which is one reason why I think Terry Bradshaw is so often overlooked as one of the best quarterbacks ever (everyone I can recall mentions Marino, Montana and Elway as the top three, with Bradshaw figuring somewhere in the "second tier").

Me personally, I'll take five Super Bowls (and another one somewhere on the horizon within the next few seasons) over dazzling passer yardage but crappy defense, ANY DAY!!!!!

I say defense wins championships so that all that matters. We have to blitz and cause sacks/INT's and fumbles which we can easily do. Also Ben has to play well but if those 2 are clicking good we can win most of our games.
