Default Steelers Will Be Better Or Worse Than 8-8 Record

Summary: The Steelers had a great preseason. The best thing about it was that no one got hurt. Surprises were few and far between. You had to know several months ago that Chukki Okobi's days were numbered once they signed free agent center Sean Mahan; that Verron Haynes, despite being a good soldier for many years, had a slim to none chance of sticking; that they were going to cut draft choices Ryan McBean, Cameron Stephenson and Dallas Baker.

Now that's really going out on a limb! Future articles from Marc Simon will include:

Hines Ward will get either more than 1,000 yards receiving or less.
If the Steelers don't beat Buffalo in week 2, they will lose to the Bills.
It will either be above or below 32 degrees when the Bengals play in Pgh on Dec 2.

Why we'll be better:
We have a healthy Ben Roethlisberger.

Why we'll be worse:
We have a healthy Ben Roethlisberger, the guy that led the league in interceptions.
Oh, the healthy Roethlisberger that was about a week removed from major surgery for the Jacksonville loss? Or the one that still obviously was suffering from "scrambling of the brain" for the Oakland loss?

When the schedule first came out...I predicted 10-11 wins for the Steelers...I'm sticking to that....I also think that will be enough to win the AFC North......

I think the Bengals defense still sucks and I think they will miss Chris Henry for the first 8 games...Yes CJ and TJ are very good...But Henry is the X Factor in that offense...He creates mis matches for defenses at the 3rd WR when he is in the lineup...

The Ravens will miss Adalius Thomas.......Both McNair and Ray Ray are a year older.....I think the Ravens take a step back this year and win 9 games....

WTF was that I don't mean to be rude here but seriously. We could be better or we could be worse no SH@T. I understand what he is trying to say I just don't understand why.

I agree 10 to 11 wins and it might even take a tie breaker to decide the divison and you dead on about Henry he is more valuable than alot think.

I think it comes down to this first 5 game stretch. If we can pull a 4-1 / 5-0, I think we will be in great shape to make a run for the division.

you are could not be more right - if we do not start off hot, we are screwed our schedule is brutal in the second half of the season. bengals, patroits, jags, rams, and ravens to finish up. if we go 3-2 out of the last five its a minor miracle.

There is a LOT of season to play before the first 5 games are done. I think we can only improve as the season goes on while everyone gels together and plays even MORE like a team. If we come out of the first 5 games with a 5-0 record, I think even the Ratbirds and the Bungles will be scared of us...especially if we dominate those 5 games.

I will go out on a limb and predict that we will win 12-13 games this season. I may be smoking something other than those wonderful menthols that I like, but I say it is possible.

Call me a Homer or Yinzer, but that is my take!!

Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
