Atlanta will be tough next year but I expect KC to take a step back. All in all its a fairly easy schedule and Ican see us winning 11 games but everyone said that this season to

Houston will be better in 2014. Good to get NO at home instead of at the Super Dome. Tampa should be better, but still beatable.

ATL will be tough at the Georgia Dome. JAX should be a lay up. No excuses for losing to NYJ or TEN.

If Bridgewater comes out, which I would guarantee now, he is going #1.

It's going to suck rooting against Cam Newton.

I can see the Saints, Panthers, Chiefs and Colts being an issue.

Oh dear god, I just looked and saw we don't have to travel out west for any away game next season. That's fantastic news for Roethlisberger. Our away schedule actually looks pretty light, all things being equal. The one game I'm worried about above all is Carolina. They're a legitimate Super Bowl contending team this year and they're only going to get better with added receiver help next season. The Panthers and Saints are going to really test whatever secondary we have next season.

Without the draft even, I'd be comfortable in saying 11-5/12-4. I know it's silly to predict it right now, but 6-2 in the last 8 without Pouncey and a healthy offense means great things for this team going forward. They're only going to get better with the cavalry of defenders we're about to draft as well.

That could easily turn into one of the most difficult schedules in the league.

Not sure if Baltimore and Cincy will improve or decline.

You'd expect Cleveland to improve if they can finally get some QB stability. Then again, we say that every year. I don't think Hoyer is as good as they think. They have a bad habit of falling for hometown guys (Charlie Frye, Brady Quinn, Chudzinksi, etc...) It's not the movies... The hometown guy is rarely, if ever, the hero.

Houston should improve. 2-14 seemed like a real fluke.

New Orleans and Indy will be tough again. It's nice to get the Saints at home on our shitty field, rather than having to play them on their track turf. Hopefully it's a December game.

Not sure what to expect from Tampa. I don't think they're as bad as their record indicates.

KC is a good team. I don't think they were as good as their 9-0 start indicated, but if we play them while going through one of our annual oline transition modes, their front 7 could eat us alive.

Jacksonville and Tennessee both suck.. Although Jacksonville played pretty tough down the stretch.

Atlanta will be better. They are much better than 4-12 when healthy. Losing Gonzo will hurt.

Carolina should be good again.

Who knows what to expect from the Jets? They have a pretty solid defense and finished the season strong. They did beat the Pats this year too.

Obviously we could lose any game but the scariest one on the schedule is away at Carolina and even that isn't too scary. Saints are tough but we get Brees out of his dome. If we get them late in the season that also means cold weather. Although we lost to Tannehill in the snow :/

I always prepare myself for a split with either Cinci or Ravens.

If we don't play down to our opponents it should be a strong year.

Can't say I'm too thrilled. We had a cake schedule this year.

Not so simple.

Tennesee and Jacksonville always play the Steelers tough. Does anyone not remember the last time Pittsburgh played Jacksonville?

The Steelers barely beat Jacksonville in Pittsburgh back in 2011. Getting shut out in the second half of that game. They won anyway thanks to Jacksonville being terrible. It was a sure case of it being time to let Bruce Arians go as OC.

Indy is a good team.

Atlanta and Houston will be better. Their seasons this year were flukes.

New Orleans will be tough too.

The success of the 2014 Steelers all hinges on the Defense. If the Defense is still leaky, then it'll be just another 8-8 finish or worse.
