Default John Clayton - Time to panic in Pittsburgh? Hardly

This from John Clayton at ESPN.com

Time to panic in Pittsburgh? Hardly
Elite QBs mean everything; that's why Steelers will overcome dreadful Week 1 outing

But fear not, Steelers fans. AFC teams with elite quarterbacks shouldn't panic. With Peyton Manning out at least half the season, the AFC currently has only five elite quarterbacks. When the number of elite quarterbacks slips below the number of playoff spots allotted, the playoff hopes of elite-quarterback-blessed teams can withstand a lot.

To refresh your memory, an elite quarterback under my standards is one who is capable of passing for 4,000 yards, completes 60 percent of his passes and has fourth-quarter comeback ability. Until Manning returns, the five AFC elite quarterbacks are Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, Joe Flacco and Matt Schaub.

With one road game out of the way against Flacco, Roethlisberger faces only three elite quarterbacks the rest of the season -- Flacco, Brady and Schaub. Chances of an 11- or 12-win season are very good.


By making that much sense, John Clayton establishes that he has not been reading this forum

whatever, Steelers are GREAT at beating THEMSELVES. So basically our elite QB will be playing an elite QB every game.
