Default We Stink...

Ok, well not really.... But, it got your attention didn't it?

I am just trying to point out that at the start of the season to about game 5 it doesn't really mean very much unless you drop all five games as losses. Then again on the other hand it doesn't hurt to go 5-0 either.

With a loss by the Bengals and Ravens and a stunning 45-7 Victory by the Steelers last Sunday it is a wonder why people were flushing them down the toilet. I know most of us here know that it's just the begining of the season and a lot can happen after game 5.

AFC North

Baltimore 4-2-0
Cincinnati 3-2-0
Pittsburgh 2-3-0
Cleveland 1-4-0

Pittsburgh is now only 1 Game back from 1st Place. Now lets take a look at our opponents remaining schedules and see where they may possibly loose to open it up for Pittsubugh.

We'll Start with the Ravens. I have bolded the following games which I feel are a distinct possiblity for them to loose.

10/29/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 A
11/05/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 H
11/12/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 A
11/19/06 1:00 PM FOX 45 H
11/26/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 H
11/30/06 8:00 PM NFL Network A
12/10/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 A
12/17/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 H
12/24/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 A
12/31/06 1:00 PM CBS 13 H

Well as you can see I bolded both of the games against the Steelers because we can only really afford to lose 2 More to be able to win the division. I do think it's a possiblity that the Saints may be able to beat the Ravens because the 2 previous weeks may have shown them how the Ravens can be beat.

Ravens Final Record 10-6

Now lets Take a look at the Bengals remaining schedule. Doing the same for the Ravens I have bolded what I think they could possibly loose.

Sun. 22 PANTHERS 1:00 PM ???
Sun. 29 FALCONS 1:00 PM
Sun. 5 @ Ravens 1:00 PM
Sun. 12 CHARGERS 1:00 PM
Sun. 19 @ Saints 1:00 PM
Sun. 26 @ Browns 1:00 PM
Thu. 30 RAVENS 8:00 PM ?????????
Sun. 10 RAIDERS 1:00 PM
Mon. 18 @ Colts 8:30 PM
Sun. 24 @ Broncos 4:15 PM
Sun. 31 STEELERS 1:00 PM

I think it is very much so in the Relm of possibility that the Bengals can lose the games I have bolded above. This would leave them somewhere around 9-7 to 10-6. I am also going to leave some leeway and say they may have a chance to make it to 11-5.
I think The Bengals and Ravens will share one loss each between the two of them.



Where does this leave the Steelers?


This leaves us with very little room for error. We can only lose 2 more and at the max 3 more to give us a shot at the Division. This is going to be a very tight year in the AFC North and it's going to go down to the End. Lets be happy that we only lost one Division Game so far and lets win the rest of them. But, let's face it the Ravens and Bengals are superheros, they are a team just like we are and will not win the rest of thier games either.

Go Steelers! and just remember this is just in my humble opinion.

Going into some stadiums that may be enough... but we are coming off of a tough loss and you are coming into the Dome. We are getting some key players back too.

Good luck to you too. It is going to be an exciting game!

We will probably start Austin King... he has some starts under his belt. So it shouldnt affect the continuity of our line. But it isnt the best thing to lose you starting guard...

It looks like he's going to be out again. We have some decent depth there so we should be OK. Arnold Harrison his replacement played well last week.
