NOT ME. Nor do I think we will win the rest of them. But we will be a strong strong force come playoff time. Maybe even #1 seed.

We could've.... as I "KNOW " we can beat any team in the NFL..... But to " show up " for every game to pull it off is something totally different. This is the "perfect " senario: 1) win enough to gain home field advantage in the playoffs 2) just "show up " for 2-3 playoff games and one SB.... .... end result, # 7 AND Bragging rights for STEELER NATION....

Well, there was no team on our schedule that should've beaten us. In theory, we should've won them all.

In reality, just random shit that's beyond your control is usually going to deal you at least 2-4 losses even if you have the best football team ever assembled. We started seeing that in the first half of the first game this year. We'll make the playoffs and be in a position to make a run; it'll just be a matter of whether luck is on our side in January in regards to injuries, confidence and momentum.

I think I speak for a majority of long time Steeler fans when I say that I honestly didn't think we would go undefeated but I thought that our losses would come to a much better team than Chicago. I know it's early in the season but with Urlacher out and Cutler's new team I thought we would handle Chicago easily. To me it looked like the Bears wanted this game more. I think that we took the Bears too lightly and before we knew it we were in a dog fight. I always say when you leave a team in the game they start believing they can win and some times they actually do as evident to last weeks loss. I know people hate to bring up the past but this is classic Steelers of old playing down to their competition. I thought the 09 team would never let that happen.

Honestly, I thought this just might be the year.

What looked like the toughest team on the schedule, we beat out of the gate.

We returned all of our D except two, and they both split time with their replacements already.

Our offense was healthy, primed, and ready to go it seemed.

We finally had a returner...

and our schedule really favored us.

So yeah, I thought this just might be the year.

But no matter. Its more important to have a Lomardi at the end. If a couple losses throughout the season point out our weaknesses so we can fix them before Decemember/January football comes around, then I welcome the losses.

The Steelers would not go undefeated as talented as they are. 16-0 is delusional.

I just figured the Steelers would lose to better teams or simply because they were outplayed, not fumbling games away to teams like Chicago.

My thoughts exactly

I can live with 15-1.

With the history of #1 seeds, I would prefer #2 - #4. I don't think my heart can go through another #6 either.

This team has a target on their back and any opponent is going to try and exploit any weakness. They are all coming at the Steelers just like the Jets did against the Pats because it's a matter of pride sometimes.

Now Tomlin knows what to do. It is just a matter of getting the players to avoid the slump and lack of concentration. Polamalu not being on the field is having an impact on field checmistry. More than I would have predicted.

Harrison again is carrying the load on defense and BB did everything he could to win last week. Too many mistakes from coaching to players contributed to the loss. Even if Reed made both FGs, maybe the Bears run different plays and score a TD with the extra point and win by one. Or maybe Cutler gets shaken and he throws a pick.

The next game needs to be a statement game by the Steelers or everybody will know they are ripe for picking.

I don't care if we are undefeated. The only game I care if we are undefeated this year is on Super Bowl Sunday.

Great teams lose games during the year....in many cases...multiiple games. We did last year and still won it.
