Default Re: Playoff Possibilities

I'd like to see the Steelers win out...11-5 is a respectable playoff record, and winning 4 games in a row is probably what's needed to get this teams collective "head on straight". We aren't the Browns, so just getting to the playoffs means nothing. You want a team playing solid football that can do some damage and has a chance to advance. I'd say we just faced the 2 best teams in the NFL, and the level of competition we face in the next 4 weeks is significantly lower.

If we lose to any of the next 4 opponents, I'd rather not even bother with the playoffs. Losing any one of the upcoming games is unacceptable

How could losing to a 9-3 team be unacceptable?

Because if they played in the AFC they'd be 5-7 now.

Brillant deduction. That clears up everything

I don't have the numbers for this year, but last year the AFC wiped the floor with the NFC, going 44-20.
I don't make predictions, ever, but there is no way the Steelers lose to the Bears.

I live with a Bears fan so this game is extra important for me, playoff implications aside. We got in to it a little, earlier this season, when my buddy made a couple cracks about the Steelers choking in big games.

One thing led to another and the next thing you know I'm calling for a Steelers blowout. Damn, it doesn't look good right now.

Of course, I can't see the Steelers losing four straight games. Plus, somebody has to beat the Bears, right? I mean, at the beginning of the season nobody picked these jokers to do anything.

I really don't want to have to move but if the Bears take down the Steelers, I'm burning everything I own and leaving town. Hopefully I can get my financial aid transfered somewhere else.

Pretty confident in that statement. I wouldnt take the Bears for granite. I think the Steelers win but I am not putting money on it. The way we have played the last couple of weeks I wouldnt be suprised to see another L in the column.
