Default I love the optimism of Steelers fans...

9-7 wins the division. Whatever you have to tell yourselves to still have hope. Oh and one of my favorites, The AFC north overrated. Do you seriously expect me to believe that if the Steelers were 5-2, the Bengals were 4-3 and the Ravens were 2-5, that you guys would be saying that 9-7 wins the division, or that the AFC North is overrated. No you would be saying that your boys were on top of the toughest division in football.

The point is that if 9-7 wins the division(which it doesn't by the way more like 11-5) then in youre delusional minds you still have a good shot. The fact of the matter is that 11-5 is what its going to take to win the division, and you guys don't see your boys winning out.

And don't even start the WildCard talk. With lossed to Jax, SD, Cincy, and soon to be Denver, that isn't even a possibility.

Either way, your hopes and dreams will all come to an end this weekend. How does 2-6 sound. I guess 8-8 would win the division then huh?

I say 11-5. Go The Distance. And No I don't think that wins the division. The Following scenarios tell it all

1. Cincy and Baltimore would need to fall almost every game from here on out.

2. Cincy and Baltimore at worst will probably be 10-6 or maybe 9-7?

Even though it's duable with our schedule, I think we still have work to do. I think it can be done.

Hmmmm - so you're a soothsayer now, eh? Me thinks you should be more concerned about the Bungles with their wonderous *cough* *cough* 4-3 record headed into Baltimore this weekend. Their D is going to carve up Cartoon and his band of hoodlums like a Thanksgiving turkey.

We have optimism because we know that our team can overcome adversity. You might recall it, you had it last year in the Wild Card game but your team couldn't over come it. We know it can be done, it has been done before, not only by Steelers but by other teams. It's knowing that, that I have optimism that my team can win the remaining games and claim the division. I definitely don't think that 9-7 will win this division. If the wheels fall off, maybe 10-6, but most likely 11-5!

Well I would certainly like to think so since I'm a Ravens fan.

Quit drinking the Kool Aide, I might as well say the the Raiders are going to end up 11-5 and we are going to the AFC championship game against the steelers and beating them to go on to the superbowl.

There is nothing wrong with optimism.

The difference is that I know it can happen in Pittsburgh where as in Oakland, they wouldn't know a winning record if the NFL handed it to them. I mean seriously what has your team done since he threw away the Super Bowl against the scubs?
And if you think that a team can't rattle off 11 wins in a row, look back over recent years. The Steelers won 16 in a row (including playoffs), 9 in a row (last year and opening day this year), the Patriots put together 21 games in a row (including playoffs).
As for the Raiders doing it, they could if they had an offense to go along with their D. However, they don't and like a few other teams, I feel confident that they won't push the envelope for winning their division!
But hey whatever makes you happy, if it's Kool-Aid, keep drinking!
