Default Never Say Die: Playoff Picture

With Baltimore losing last night, believe it or not, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still in this thing and is only 2 games out of the 5th and 6th Wild Card Spots. I believe it CAN be done and if we win out, then we can not only land a 6th, but a possible 5th!


All we have to worry about is win out, first and foremost, some way, some how. If we do that, then we won't have to worry about Baltimore or Miami since we have the head to head tie breakers over them regardless of what they do outside of us.

We need the Jets to lose at least one and I expect that to happen since they aren't even close to being a viable contender. The Jags have a TOUGH schedule and could lose 3 of the remaining 4. I expect them to lose at least 2. Denver has Indy this week and head to Philly, 2 games they could lose right there. So with that said, let's project things that could happen in favor of us.



Jags

Dolphins: L
Colts: L (depending on what the Colts do as far as starters.)
@ Patriots: L
@ Browns: W
(8-8)


Jets

@ Buccaneers: W
Falcons: L
@ Colts : L (Depending on what the Colts do as far as starters.)
Bengals: W (Depending on what the Bengals do as far as starters. Could be fighting for a 2nd seed with SD.)
(8-8)

Dolphins

@ Jaguars: W
@ Titans: W
Texans : L
Steelers: L
(8-8)

Ravens
Lions: W
Bears: W
@ Steelers: L
@ Raiders: W
(9-7)

Broncos
@ Colts: L
Raiders: W
@ Eagles: L
Chiefs: W
(10-6)

So, that leaves:

5.Steelers (10-6) TIEBREAKER
6.Broncos (10-6)
----------------------------------------------
Ravens (9-7) ELIMINATED
Jags (8-8) ELIMINATED
Jets (8-8) ELIMINATED


Considering we win out, that puts us at 10-6. The Broncos could also be 10-6. We go head to head, and since we beat them, we own that tiebreaker, which puts us in the 5th spot and Denver in the 6th spot.

I know it's wishful thinking, but that's the best case scenario. Fortunate thing is, is that is COULD BE DONE! Of course, we need to win out and this would all be irrelevant if we indeed lose one more.

Don't Stop Believin'!!!!!

HERE WE GO STEELERS!!!!!! Bring on the Shit Stains!!!!!

My daughter thinks she's getting a new swing set from Santa...so in the wishful spirit of the season...why not?

I dunno how they stop Aaron Rodgers but why not?

At this point, coming out of 4 consecutive losses, 2 of which being inexcusable, the Steelers are as capable as any of the teams you mentioned to lose at least one game out of 4.
It's not a matter of believing or not, it's a matter of looking realistically at the situation. Believing in the team doesn't win games, unfortunately.

That is a big "what if". The steelers have always bee more than capable of doing that. I will do my part thursday to turn it into a home game.

I agree it is going to be tough as hell, but remember we won a SB when everyone said we backed into the playoffs. Just give it one game at a time bud.

I am looking for one win right now. I refuse to look ahead for what could or should happen in the future.
Even if they make the playoffs, they are not going anywhere.

That's exactly what I do. No wishful thinking or speculation here. From now on, there's absolutely no room for error.

Until we are mathematically eliminated...

If there is any team in the league that can do it, it's this one. Just start showing the '05 superbowl DVD in the locker room.
