Default What the Steelers need to do to make the playoffs

So what do you think the Steelers need to do to make the playoffs this year? I'll put down 3 things the Steelers need to do but I'm sure there are many more.

1: Ben NEEDS to stay healthy, when the Steelers have him as QB and he's healthy they are a different team. Last season in the last 8 games Ben was healthy and the Steelers went 6-2. Coincedence? I think not.

2: Beat the Ravens atleast once. The division leaders need to go down espcially when they gave us an ass whooping last year.

3: The Steelers need to start out 5-0 or 4-1. A fast start could get this team's morale up. They can defiantly do that with the first 5 games being teams that the Steelers should beat.

Yes those are 3 big keys.

I'd like to add another one.

4. Big Ben and Coach Tomlin need to be on the same page. I feel he(ben) lacked communication with Cowher last year.

5. Big T needs to put the hunger and fire back in the guys. Which we dearly missed last season.

Yes Big Ben being healthy and on top of his game is the key to the Steelers season....I would say improvement from the Oline is huge to....

But really just cut down on the turn overs and improve the special teams....Then the Steelers will be a play-off team...Even with Ben battling injuries and the Oline in decline last year if the Steelers hadn't turned the ball over so much and the special teams didn't suck as bad then the Steelers would have made the play-offs....

Or win one of those stupid losses they had last year. Ahh last year frustrates me so badly.

I would also add that they need to go 4-2 (3-3 min) in the AFC North; with as previously mentioned one of those wins ideally coming against Balt. With the strength of some other teams in the conference (Bolts, Pats, Indy, Denver) we will need to be successful in our own division to make the playoffs.

I will also add give the ball to Willie more. The Steelers are 12-1 when Willie Parker goes over 100 yards rushing.

If that's true it's really good, but also means o line has to step up and do better than last season.
Turnovers seems to be the key, if we minimize the turnovers and our pass defense works at least a little better than last season we'll be in the playoffs.

Got that stat right of out Street & Smith's preseason magazine. I was shocked at that stat.
