Default SI.com Projects Steelers To Miss Playoffs

Sports Illustrated's web site is getting an early start jumping off the Seelers bandwagon before the sky is falling posts we will see if the Steelers lose on Sunday night

This entry projects the Steelers to lose out on the last wild card spot to .......
the Chiefs

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (8-3)

If The Playoffs Started Today: In; No. 6 seed
Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at Baltimore (L); vs. Cincinnati (W); vs. N.Y. Jets (L); vs. Carolina (W); at Cleveland (L)
Final Projected Record, Playoff Seeding: 10-6; out
Extra Point: It's obviously only a hunch, but that finale against the Browns has upset written all over it. Before Steelers fans riot in anger, let's point out the good: should Pittsburgh beat Cleveland and finish 11-5, tying them with K.C., the Steelers would win the tiebreaker based on record against common opponents


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...-13/index.html

I would be shocked to see a Steelers loss to the Jets at home absent Roethisberger or Polamalu missing the game

Meanwhile Don Banks also has his doubts in this week's power rankings

The Steelers defense can be fearsome, and you can't discount a Ben Roethlisberger-led offense. But I'm starting to have my doubts about the team Peter King picked to go all the way. Pittsburgh has lost to Baltimore, New Orleans and New England, three legitimate Super Bowl contenders. Other than beating visiting Atlanta in overtime in the opener, who has Pittsburgh handled that makes you think they're Dallas-bound?

That New England loss still lingers for the national media

So he's basically saying the Chiefs will lose to the Chargers in 2 weeks and win their other 4 games. I have my doubts about this. They will trip up against someone. Even if they don't I would be surprised if we lose this weekend and then only split our last 4, although it wouldn't shock me this year like it did last year.

It's really not that outlandish a claim when you think about it. We're 1-3 versus the best teams in the league(1 without Ben) and have struggled against a few lower to mid tier teams. If we don't beat the Ravens and Jets there's very good chance we're on the outside looking in again.

judging by how accurate SI.com's predictions are, I'm glad they're predicting we miss the playoffs :)

Dear media, thank you.

And just getting with my cinema references...the media also doubted Superman in SUPERMAN II. :P

2-3 for the last 5 games is kind of harsh, I doubt it will happen, will more like 3-2, but an 11-5 record doesn't guarantee a playoff spot, especially with the way the playoffs are shaping up. Hopefully they can just go 5-0 the last 5 games lol.

I think 5-0 is a distinct possibility, as is 4-1, with the one loss coming against Cleveland, of all teams. It's not even so much that it's a trap game... it might just be meaningless for us, Super Bowl for them.
