Default Playoffs Matchups

now that a playoff birth and first round bye have been clinched, pending seeding, i think its time to discuss who you think the steelers match up best against and who you would like to see them play and avoid.

here are the teams still fighting for playoffs seeding -
Titans
Jets
Broncos
Colts
Ravens
Dolphins
Patriots
Chargers

of those teams i would least want to play the Ravens. they have the best defense by far on that list and beating a team 3 times in one season is no easy task.

i would love for us to get another shot at the colts. they are not built in any way for a postseason run with their style of play on offense and defense. they are barely scrapping together wins vs terrible opponents and will probably ride a train of BS hype heading into he playoffs. we handed them the first game and i think our guys would really be out for revenge because they knew everything went the colts way the first time around.

i will withhold judgment on the titans until i see the game sunday.. from what i have seen so far though, i am not impressed and feel we are their worst possible match up in the playoffs.

the other teams are all very inconsistent. one thing that is consistent though is that they all have poor defenses.

Only team that gives me the heebie geebies is US... We have beat 3 of those teams already and lost to ourselves versus the Colts! So none of them worry me if we play our game and don't panic...

Personally an AFCC matchup of us against the Jets would be the icing on the cake. I'd like nothing more than to make Brett Favre eat dirt all day long.



Matchup wise, I think we've proven we can own any team you listed.

Agreed, first the Pats though......putting those 2 out of the playoffs would be the icing on the cake for me.

I agree. The only team that can really beat the steelers is the steelers themselves

In a perfect world we'd play the dolphins and then the broncos. But that ain't happeing

The fins are no slouches though

If our offense can get on track there's no team that can beat us AFC or NFC. This defense we have is truly exceptional, with an even average offense there isn't a team in the NFL that can play with the Steelers.

Well the team I would least like to see is Baltimore, but if we beat the Titans next week, we can expect to see them as they will most likely win their playoff game. At least we will have a week to heal. I just would rather save the injury count if possible. I feel confident we can win agains anyone though.

I would like to take the patriots out of the playoffs that would be sweet but if we had to play Baltimore again that would make me draw up a little bit they always play us tough.
