Cool I'll be honest...

With losses today by the Colts, Chargers, and Dolphins, I feel a whole lot better about the Steelers playing in the playoffs this year.

Making to the playoffs isn't the problem, its winning I'm worried about.

Man, you aren't kidding. I mean, a win tonight would make things A LOT easier...but Colts and Chargers losing pretty much makes anyones playoff trip that much easier.

Was planning to post on this and you beat me to it - lots of channel changing on Sunday Ticket between the Falcons, Chargers and Colts late this afternoon - all three games with happy endings

I am amazed by the Chargers loss - classic trap game after winning in Indy and the Chiefs coming to town next week - this loss might finally get Norv fired

Back to back 4 INT games for Peyton Manning

Not giving up hope tonight, but 11-5 will get a wildcard - would be sweet if any wildcard road trip was to KC or Jax rather than San Diego or Indy

Not focus on facts that make controlling one's destiny that much easier? No thanks.

But see, you're probably going into this game hoping more for a win than you have in quite some time.

I... I am going in expecting to come out with a loss and battle for the #6 playoff spot.

With a healthy Ben, I might share your enthusiasm. I just can't.

So I will take solace in knowing that the 3 closest teams to the #6 spot all lost, meaning, if the playoffs started noon Sunday next week, Steelers are in.

You'll see this become more and more important in the coming games.

Peyton to me is a classic over-thinker. An OC calling plays for him committed to a sustained running game would help him a great deal. I know they've had injuries to their RB's. But even if they were healthy, to me he's the same way. Trying to get the perfect play call that will lead to a bomb for a touchdown. Just hit the ball, Sergio.

Well I'm a Ravens fan but I can agree that I enjoy seeing the Colts lose yet again tonight. 4 interceptions by Manning including a game loser in OT. So I will grant the Steelers a wild card so long as the Colts are eliminated.

We all know anything can happen once you're in the tournament.

I feel this team is truly capable of winning in the playoffs **IF**

1.) They do not sustain any more significant injuries.
2.) Those that should be healthy and back for the playoffs are indeed healthy and back.

This season is becoming interesting.
