Default The Home Stretch

Next four games.

@Pats 7-4, Cowboys 7-4, @Ravens 7-4, and @Titans 10-1.

Can it get even more brutal? It would be nice if we got a few wins, but I don't know if the Steelers can do it. Signs are pointing to a 'limp into the playoffs' deal like last year, or we may even miss the playoffs entirely.

The Defense is awesome, but New England has owned it recently, offense is still a bit messy, and this Steelers team is prone to blowing games (Blowing 14-9 and 17-7 leads to NY and Indy).

Those Colts and Giants games really hurt now. This is not good.

If we can win half them games then we will be ok I would say out of the two the Ravens and the Tiatans is going to be our toughest opponents.

Well, if they don't beat any of this team they don't deserve to be in the playoffs

I prefer playing this teams than teams like the lions. Much more exciting

All we can do is hope for the best, I know this team will get it done

I kinda disagree, I think Dallas and the Pats will be more of a challenge, only because they can score points. If our D has troubles, it could get ugly.

If our O plays like they have been we will get beat by 7-10 points by every one of those teams.

Its mainly the lack of a strong running game that worries me....

when your struggling to run on a Bengals front...that should scare the hell out of you

We can't play the same way against these teams....our running game has to come around or it will be the end of us.We'll become one dimensional, and they'll be able to tee off on Ben whose already gimped.

Im not saying its all doom and gloom either we absolutely have the potential to win every game but its going to take an attitude adjustment....a sense of urgency that Im not sure they have yet.

Because if we lose to NE and Bal we will be in some serious trouble with the way things are shaping up in the AFC.

was thinking the same thing as well. if our D struggles we'll have issues catching up, our offense continues to sputter

If we win our two remaining division games then io think we will be fine. Outside of that, becuase of tie breakers, the NE and Tenn. games are more important than beating the "cowchips."

As for NE and Dallas, neither team has a great D. They are both especially susceptible against the run. So, if we are going to get out running game going, the next two weeks are an opportunity.

They can beat any of those teams, especially if the D shows up and plays to their capability, which I think they will. The onus is on the O to play solid football and score to take pressure off the D and put themselves in good position to win. That said, I think they split the next 4 games, beating the Cowgirls and upsetting the Titans, and losing to the Pats* and Rats. Then all they will need to do, provided the Rats lose at least 1 more game, is beat Cleveland in the final game to lock up the division and at least the #3 seed.

My thoughts exactly. If they can't finish the season 3-2 then we really won't do much in the playoffs anyhow. I personally see us getting beat by the patriots and winning out the rest of the games even though Fischer has always F'ed us somehow. Alhough I hope we don't lose to the Patriots. I don't care how many times Cassel throws for 400. It's his first year, our defense needs to put the fear of horrible pain into him and then they need to make his fear a reality at some point in the game.

We better not let them do that dink and dunk BS and control the clock....

I cannot stand their FFing O.

And Farrior and Foote better be moving their butts to cover Faulk.......They have repeatedly been owned by him on Man Coverage in previous encounters. How many critical 3rd downs has that liitle turd picked up them over the years.

Maybe Timmons is the answer hes faster
