Default Backs against the wall again!

The Steelers put themselves in another tough position Sunday by not winning a crucial game at home. This has been common place the last several years though. The Steelers never seem to close the door on an opponent, instead making it difficult on themselves. But in the end they always seem to find a way to get there in the end. Whether that means they'll win the division or go in as a wildcard, I have faith they'll be a factor at the end.
This team has a history of needing their backs against the wall to bring out the best in them. I suspect this year will be no different. I doubt the Bungals wan't to see us a 3rd time.

4. Pats (6-3)
5. Steelers (6-3 - 5th seed over SD due to head-to-head)
6. Chargers (6-3)

The Steelers still have a shot at the division title. They just won't win any tiebreakers over Cincy. All it takes is one Steelers win and a Bengals Loss and it all knotted up again, almost.

Lets see how it plays out the rest of the way, for all we know Bungholes could lose another 2-3 games and the Steelers could win the rest of theres. Either way Steelers will be in the playoffs, if they want it bad enough they'll win it either the hard way or easy way.

im liking having wins against both SD and DEN right now. as long as we take care of the ravens we should be in really great shape. gonna have to be bigger fans of who ever is playing Cincy for the next 7 weeks than normal.

Yeah, having head-to-head over Denver and SD is pretty big for us at the moment, but I think the clock struck midnight for the Broncos last Monday night against us and probably will wind up out of the playoffs over the next 7 weeks, but we'll see. We could certainly use another 5-6 game win streak.

while im glad everyone isnt sayin bad stuff about ben and the rest of the team, lets be real, the steelers will most likely lose 2 more games, same with the bengals (look at the remaining schedules for both teams) bottom line-well get a wild card and most likely make it one round b4 losing to a better team, i hate to lay it out like that cuz i gotta keep faith in the steelers, but u gotta be real so were not disappointed...today showed me the steelers arent wat they were last year, way too many blown oppurtunities, and a failed possible game winning drive at the end, that special teams TD proved to be the difference, we just dont play as well as last year, and our offense goes invisible too much, and of course ben has to throw his mandatory INT at least once a game...maybe im frustrated and venting, but this team is just so damn frustrating, i was goin nuts during the game...the bungles will win the division, but well get a wild card and maybe the switch will go on in the heads of the offense and theyll start scoring TDs, not FGs!!! hate to be negative and i wont after today but i had to lay it out cuz we cant all just start using fairy dust and wishing for the division win and another super bowl victory
