Default Steelers/Cards Question/Opinion

Is this game against the Cards a must win ?

sitting at 4-2, cards, then pats, then ravens,


to get us to 5-2, then split with ravens and pats
gets us to 6-3

where if we lose to cards, probably looking at 5-4.


i know are schedule gets alittle bit "softer " after ravens.

say softer because the bengals should be 2 wins but arent gimmies,
49ers wont be a gimmie, browns arent good but arent awful


So in short yet i think its a must win. (or close to it)

It is absolutely a must win.

With the way we have played this year, we are likely going to lose to both the Ravens and Pats. The Bengals are going to be a tough test, and I wouldn't be shocked if we split the series with them. The 49'ers are the real deal this year and are going to be tough to beat.

If we lose to the Cards, we're in serious trouble.

Glad to see some similar opinions out there. I want us to win every game and in 16 games, every one is important, but I can't emphasize this game enough. If we win this one - I feel good that we don't lose twice in a row at home. I'm seeing 3-1 or 2-2 at worst. Anything else will probably seal any deal of getting a bye in playoffs. All speculation aside - we're a team that has a very thin margin of error.

It's not a "must-win", but a loss puts a lot of unneccessary early pressure on a banged-up team. We need every victory we can get.

We need to win the games against foes such as the Cards to keep up with the Ravens, a lose is not a good thing.

It is a very big game

Loss to Arizona and the Steelers probably are down to scrambling for a wild card heading into games against the 2 best teams on the schedule

The 1-2 road record, the inability to put bad teams away, and Troy's status are real concerns going into this game

It's a must-win.

Although, ironically, it's the one game before the bye where a loss would hurt us the least, since it's against an NFC team, and a loss there would do less damage in the playoff hunt than a loss to the Pats, Ravens or Bengals.

That being said though, this team needs every win it can get. I think the next Steelers/Ravens match-up won't be so one-sided but that doesn't mean that we'll come out victorious. I certainly hope so, but they are playing better overall than we are right now. Cincy also has seemed to have found their stride as well; yeah, I know they're the Bengals, but they seemed to have turned themselves around, at least for the moment... Dalton doesn't really worry me but everyone has been talking Cincy's defense up lately. That's of concern because Ben has struggled against Cincy's defenses in the last two seasons.

And then there's the Pats. I hate to say it, but until the Steelers prove me wrong (and dear God, oh how I want them too) I always just assume that Pats week will result in a loss.

Though, if we do lose to the Cards and that somehow lights a fire under Pittsburgh's ass and they beat the next three teams, I'll probably be ecstatic. But that shouldn't be necessary; their disappointment in their own performance in the second half of yesterday's game should be enough to get them to beat the Cards soundly next week.

How do you think we are going to split with the Ravens and the Pats?

A Cards win and 2 losses still gives us a 5-4. I hope last weeks team (plus one quarter this week) shows up, if not we are probably out of the playoff picture. Nobody wants that!!! I'd rather see 7 -2 at the end of the 3 weeks.

The Cards game is a must-win, as are all of the games.

this is a big game for us. nobody wants to think of it, but if we lose here, we can easily end up 4-5 after this 3 game stretch if we don't get it together soon. ne and balt are both looking like super bowl contenders, and let's not forget that cincy is actually playing well also.

By beating the Ravens (which usually happens when Roethlisberger plays) and losing to New England (which almost always happens when Brady plays)?
