Default Almost time to hit the Panic Button

I am not sure some of you realize this, but we are dangerously close to not making the playoffs.

Records:
Pittsburgh 7-3
Cleveland 6-4

We have 1.5 game lead over Cleveland, so they have to finish ahead of us in the division

Schedules:

Steelers -
Miami
Cincinnati
New England
Jacksonville
St Louis
Baltimore

Cleveland -
Texans
Arizona
Jets
Buffalo
Cincinnati
San Francisco

The Browns schedule gives them the ability to win out, we will most likely have another loss against the Pats (sorry, but they are just playing out of this world right now and we are making too many mental mistakes as a team) so if we lost just one of the other games we may not make the playoffs You all know Baltimore would like nothing better than to play spoiler to our season, Jacksonville is as physical as us and will possibly be playing for their division lead. I have faith we can do it, but we really need to see the reality of our situation and hope our players get their heads on straight!

I dont get why everyone thinks Cleveland will run the table.

I bet they lose atleast 2 more, probably 3

So, the Browns are going to win 7 in a row? I'll believe that when I see it. We're still in the driver's seat in the division, and until we're not, I'm not going to worry too much about it.

Um, even if we end up tied with Cleveland, we win the division.

The Browns cane easily lose to all those teams except for San Fransisco.

The Browns won't win out. They got lucky last week. Their luck is going to run out.

If the Browns had beaten us in either of the two matchups we've had with them this season - or even one of those - I'd be a little concerned. If we weren't perfect in divisional games thus far, I'd be concerned as well. As fansince'76 said - we are in the driver's seat, not the Browns. With their horrendous defense, I see them losing at least 3 games out of their final 6. Their D simply can't hold a lead in the second half. When all is said and done, I tend not to worry about what other teams are doing - I focus on MY team and my team only.

Panic? Are you serious? With 6 games left to go in the regular season? I refuse to believe that the Steelers won't turn it around and take the AFCN - even with a less than stellar OL and flip flop ST's, they have a lot of talent on that team and a HC who believes in them. We are getting close to stretch time and I believe our Steelers are going to make a legitimate run down that stretch. Fasten your seatbelt!

I'm not worried at all. That is so far fetched I don't even have anything else to add.

Cleveland is not good enough to win out. I don't see that happening. They are a good team...not a great team capable of a run like that.

A key game for the Steelers will be Cincinnati at home. To me, that is the swing game in our quest to win the division. If we go into the NE game at 9-3, I will be more comfortable than at 8-4 because I do think we will not win at NE.

I think our toughest game among the final three will be at the Rams...if Bulger and Jackson are healthy. If they are healthy, that game will be one of our toughest defensive struggles of the year.

Not permitted to be realistic. Must wear sunglasses. All is fine. No major flaws. Sunflowers, blues skies and rainbows.

On that note, we are making the playoffs. I think we will bounce back after that pathetic display of football and ring off some wins. Once we get to the playoffs is another story.

I'm taking this season one game at a time.

The only panic I have right now is the panic of fighting rush hour traffic so I can get home and watch The Steelers on MNF.
