I think Roethlisberger will post a tremendous 2007 season. He learned a lot this year and became a true leader playing with pain. Plus Holmes is very promising.

The key will be all the offseason moves in defense. Our cap number is scary, and we've got number of player in the last year of contract (Polamalu, Haggans, Porter, Farrior, Aaron Smith)

And I'd like to keep Nate Washington. His contract expires this year...

I think that with all the new coaching moves and philosophies that we will throw some teams off and surprise them with what we will be capable of. More open offensive sets has some promising possibilities though I'm not quite sure that we have the personnel to do it.

Sometimes I think............ok if Ben can stay healthy the offense will be good because of the late success they had this past year and the fact that they have a decent schedule.

Then I think..............well our division and our conference is deep and we have new coaches so the playes mindset might be different.

So what do you think?
I don't think it all revolves around Ben being out as much as brining him back too early from injury. That was when the Steelers were at their worst last year; his first game or two back.

i think no need to worry. tomlin will bring a new attitude and the players will respond, we are set at quarterback, ben will have a clean slate! the running game is in good hands with parker,i can see us drafting another back though.remember veron haynes will also be back. our recievers look to be solid i think holmes is ready for a breakout year. the line will be solid, we may lose starks, but again he is very replaceable. okkobi or phillip will get the nod at center. on d i don't think you will see much change, lebeau is back good move. the line is solid as always, the linebackers need depth but we will address that in the draft. i feel our only weak link is at corner, i like mcfadden, you can't give up on ike yet i think he will be fine, but townsend has to go i see us drafting a corner, at safety i like smith over clark. we should be solid in 2007. super bowl maybe maybe not, but a good playoff run should be expected

If we eleiminate these unforced mistakes and BEN play a little bit more cautious with the football, we should make the playoff next season. From then on, I have no idea.

In the playoff, any team has a chance. Especially in AFC, this year, no 3 team colts win the SB. in 2005, no 6 steelers win the SB.

So if we get into the playoff, we may have a good shot on the SB.

The Steelers should win the division.

Cincy has proven themselves half explosive, and half implosive, and that's just their offense.

The Ravens...back to 8-8...maybe worse.

Browns?

After the division crown...dunno...

They need an every down and also a speedy receiver to take the clamps off of Hines that defenses put on him...since HW is the only real and constant threat the Steelers have atm.

On a scale of 1-10...10 being best...I'm of the 7 range...glass more than half full, etc.

The Ravens beat the Steelers up pretty bad last year - on both occasions the Steelers were never really in the game.

Any particular reason you think a 13-3 team is going to finish at 8-8 or worse?

Denver went from 13-3 to 9-7...and so did Seattle...it could happen...

Oh my goodness. Why the sepculation that we wouldn't make the playoffs next season?

We are coming back with a new fire burning inside. A new coach, lots of new staff and we'll actually get a nice draft chioce. We still have a good nucleaus of players that just recently won a Super Bowl. How bad can we be? With the experience of a down season behind us, we will come at the next one with an intense fire burning inside. We will consume our division in single bites. WE ARE HUNGRY. Watch us go.
