Default Bullz-eye.com Picks Steelers as Playoff Contender

Bullz-eye.com picks Steelers as playoff contender with a 10-6 record.

PITTSBURGH Projection: 10-6

KEY ADDITION: Mike Tomlin, head coach

Tomlin will rejuvenate the defense, energize the team philosophy and get the Steelers back to the hard working bunch they were before the '06 collapse.

KEY LOSS: Joey Porter, OLB

Porter?s skills declined last year due to injuries and age, but every time he touches the field he demands the most out of himself and his teammates.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON: Santonio Holmes, WR

Holmes played to mixed reviews as a rookie last year, but he?s a sure-handed deep threat and might have a breakout season if the Steelers offense can stay balanced and healthy.

QUESTION MARK: Is Big Ben ready to bounce back?

After a disastrous start to the 2006 season, Ben Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a 6-2 finish and was much more effective after bouncing back from a life threatening motorcycle accident and a concussion. Is he finally healthy and ready for another postseason run?

OUTLOOK: Many pundits are predicting another off year for the Steelers, but a closer look reveals something different. Roethlisberger should be healthy, Willie Parker is set to have more of a full-time role and the defense is going to be nasty under Tomlin. Throw youngsters Holmes, first-round pick Lawrence Timmons and a healthy Troy Polamalu into the mix and, despite the new system and a tough schedule, Pittsburgh?s closer to a playoff run than most think.

They also have Cincy in the "Spinning their wheels" category and have Baltimore "Moving Backward."
