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.
Well said on all counts. Not only will the Steelers need to go 5-0 in the remaining division games, but they will need to run the table the rest of the season. This division will be won with at the very least an 11-5 record. Having said that, if the Steelers could finish the season at 10-6, that would almost seem like something of an accomplishment at this point.

You're right, we could win out and the Bengals could lose a couple of games and the last game of the season would be for the divison. Come on!, there is a chance. Its a very small chance, but there is one.

If you are so sure that its over for them then put your $$ where your mouth is.

By the your post I would say that you would agree to a bet of 100-1.

So I'll bet you $20.00 at 100-1 that the Steelers will win the divison.

What do you say?

Actually if I knew you in real life or knew you well enough I would take that bet. For various reasons I try to minimize the exposure of any specific details of my person on the net. Job. IP address, location, those are all fine, except what I do for a living does kind of narrow it down a bit :)

But you are right, there is a single chance. And until yesterday I was sure that would still be the outcome and I let the Browns fan in the office know it. I guess I should clarify, when the odds are in the 100+ to 1 realm I always say there is no chance. Would I like to be eating crow come January, you better believe it.

For the amount of money that is a pointless bet.
