Default 5 games to go...

The home stretch. How will the Steelers fare?

They say every season has it's peaks and valleys. The Steelers are obviously in a valley. Let's hope the Offense gets it together. I hope Santonio returns next week. I think we have already seen that he is invaluable to this offense. Besides the Broncs and Jets games, the D is playing at a high level as high as we've ever seen in years. Posting 2 shutouts this year.

The optimist in me says a Steeler run is in the works thanks to this valley, but the uncertain pessimist in me points out two flaws: The Offensive Line and Bruce Arians. I say the Steelers at worst go 3-2 during this stretch.

The Bungles seem to have found their feet and are coming into Heinz with momentum. Let's hope it doesn't rain next Sunday night.

Right now I want to beat the bengals and ravens, get a complete sweep on the division.
Pats game will be tough, but I see the steelers losing this one(at least in the regular season....)
Jags and Rams, could go either way, depends on the browns wins by then, but I just hope the steelers don't understimate any team right now, especially the rams who seem like the weakest of the 5 right now

I think we will do fairly well. We should get four wins if the O gets back on track. I'd really like us to pick up some momentum these next couple of weeks and role into the playoffs.

John Madden says for playoff teams the season starts at Thanksgiving - Steelers escaped last night with no injuries - Sunday night is a huge game - 8-4 with 3 out of the last 4 on the road could be grim

I figure 3-2 in the last 5 (11-5) with losses to the Pats and Jags or Rams. That means the Steelers need one Browns loss.to win the division.

If the Steelers go 2-3 (3-4 in their last seven) IMO it will be one and done in the playoffs,

thanks to Denver, and Tennessee losing this week even if we don't win division we will probably still get wild card. Cleveland has easy schedule, maybe I am naive i just don't see them winning them all even though they should. They're the Browns, remember!! Rams don't worry me one bit. Cincy will score on us, hopefully our offense will return to form or we could lose that game. If we win 1 of the games vs. Jags or Pats I will be happy. Ravens will lose composure and we should win by 17 or so. I see 3-2 at worst, and hopefully Cards will do us a favor and beat the Browns. Browns are due for a bad game. Im sure most agree, If we had a decent line we would have as good chance as Pats, or Colts to win the SB. I think its too much to ask of Ben to keep winning these games without any time to throw. If we are lucky he won't get hurt. If we clinch division prior to last week no doubt Ben should sit against Ravens. Thats what I am hoping for. Those convicts are out for blood, I wouldn't put anything past them as far as cheap shots. I hope Mahan pulls his head out of his rear.

Why do you think we'll lose to the Ravens?? I don't see that happening at all.

we have a far more likely chance of losing to the rams right now than the ravens.. that game has "trap" written all over it in large, bold, red print.
