I believe we have a chance but it's a slim to none chance and slim is looking for the door.

We definitely have to win out! It's not impossible but it's going to be difficult if they don't pull it together...one game at a time! They can't look past anyone anymore. Especially this coming week as they face a Denver team the killed back in January!

I just don't get how everyone is declaring this season over. I understand we are 2-5 and baltimore is 5-2, and cincy is 4-3. However yu need to understand that, we play baltimore twice, cincy once, and they play tough teams ahead. Both teams are mediocre at best, and we really, honest to God, have a better than 80% chance of winning out.

If miracles dont happen, like in our 5 losses, we win. I think all those miracles ran out for the opposing teams.

And when those two do lose, the Steelers need to do themselves a favor and put a W up and not give their games away (as they have in 3 of the 5 loses)!

Wow, you are really really optimistic. Not that I'm trying to rain on your parade here, but how can you say that the Steelers have a "better than 80% chance of winning out?" They are 2-5 and just lost to the Raiders who before yesterday were universally considered to be the worst team in the NFL. Today you would probably have to include the Steelers in that conversation.

Now before you go calling me a fair-weather fan, please understand that all I'm doing is giving you a painfully realistic take on this team and the current state of their season. One more thing, the Steelers as a team are second in the league only to Oakland in turnovers this season, I wouldn't exactly call that a "miracle."

The only way this team makes the playoffs is to out right win the division. After the raiders game I dont think we'll get a lot of breaks if it comes down to tie breakers.

That's what I was thinking. We still have a chance. I know it's not looking so good, but we've done it before. Even if we don't win, we could still give them Bungles, Clowns, Ratbirds a hell of a season. Ha ha ha. Watch us play! Go Steelers!

Yeah its possible, but it also is possible for the Browns to win the division.

Wild card is gone.

To win the division, Steelers need to go 5-0 in the remaining division games and somehow make up another game on Cincy and the Ravens (they play each other twice so I guess we hope for a split).

After losing to the Raiders I just do not see it. When the offense plays well the D collapses; with regard to the O the running game has collapsed (cannot score from first and goal inside the one!) and it looks like Ben just needs to get out of this year in one piece while getting his head together (physically and mentally) for 2007.

No chance whatsoever. We could be a spoiler though that is about it. This season has now become about playing for pride.
