Default Are we a Superbowl contender now?

After Blowing out the Colts and Ravens back to back are we a superbowl contender? The back to back 6 touchdown games has caught the attention of the entire league. As has Antonio Brown who is now known as the best receiver in football and Le'veon bell who is now known by many as the best all around running back in foot ball. After benching Cortez Allen (thank god) even some other guys are stepping up on defense. How about this Bryce McCain guy? Where'd he come from? Hes playing good. So is William Gay and a number of other guys. Veteran leadership from Troy, Kiesel and Harrison seems to have pulled this defense together and they are playing a hell of a lot better. It certainly appears this team could contend with anybody right now. I don't think there is anybody who would want to face us. So after being one of the worst teams in the NFL for the first 5 weeks are we now Superbowl contenders?

If the Steelers can beat the bottom feeders of the NFL... Jets and Titans... then yes, they are a Super Bowl contender. A loss to either of those teams is inexcusable with the talent the Steelers have on offense.

Still have to make the playoffs. It's still a 4 horse race and anything can happen down the stretch.

We just took out 2 very good teams so yes we're a contender. For me to be totally sold we gotta be able to take the offense on the road and produce.

Ben is making a case for being NFL MVP. 22 td's and 3 INT's, that's impressive numbers considering we're still only in the midseason

I still don't know if we can go on the road in the playoffs into a Mile high or Gillette with this defense and expect to win. Not saying we cant but I need to see more consistency out of our D! Our offense can play with anybody rite now! Time will tell...

Default Re: Are we a Superbowl contender now?

Steelers are a 6-3 team

next week, I hope they become a 7-3 team

and so on

they need to play each week like their record is 0-0, and every opponent like they are the Super Bowl Champs - especially the Jets and Titans

then, if they do that, I hope they are division champs and at least #3 seed - I'm not so sure the Broncos or Patriots are giving up the #1/#2 seed - but, I've seen crazy enough stuff happen

until 0:00 closes out regular season, I can't think that far ahead and they shouldn't be (I don't think they are)

this team, at this point, is a team that looks like they can beat anyone

my two biggest concerns left on the current path or "What stands in their way if things continue this way":

1. Tom Brady to Gradkowski
2. Broncos in Denver

They actually would be harder matchups than whoever they would face in SB, that is, if they continue to build on what they've got today as a 6-3 team IMO

Benefit of soft schedule and home games. This defense on the road cant compete at NE or Denver. If they get WC?Do you trust them on the road? I dont.

Mike Ditka seems to think we're a Superbowl contender.

I heard him this morning on Mike & Mike and he said that from what he's seen and that it's happening now, he says that he could easily see us in the Superbowl.

We'll see...

Thats not a good sign. This defense will get gashed.
