Default What's this 'easy schedule' I'm hearing about?

Upcoming schedule actually looks TOUGH.
- New England
- Baltimore
- The Bengals twice who are actually looking pretty strong at 4-2
- At Kansas City who looks like they're turning things around, starting off 0-3 but are now 3-3
- 49ers, been shitty for the last decade but are 5-1 and just beat the lions
- Cleveland at 3-3, we should beat them at home but at cleveland they always play tough

The only 'easy' game for the rest of this season is going to be vs the Rams. Not saying this is bad or anything because the team seems to play better when the schedule is tough, but just looking at the remaining games, this is no cake walk by any means.

The way I see it is that the next two define this season. Anything can happen, but you gotta think if we win against NE we can get revenge against Bmore. One way or another I don't see us losing two in a row at home - not under the circumstances against these particular teams. They know how big it is and I think they'll grab a win in at least one of them - if not both.

It's important to come out of the next two games with at least 1 victory, but I still can't find myself getting worried about the Bengals, Chiefs, or Browns. The 49ers play a style that our defense has thrived on stopping for a long time and I think they'll come back to earth for sure.

If we can get a win over the Pats or Baltimore, we're going to be in good shape and heading right towards 11 or 12 wins. Baltimore's a more important game for division purposes though.

well i agree that there's nothing scary about the bengals, chiefs, or browns, but they aren't going to be gimmie games. the fact that division games are rarely easy and they're playing better football than in recent years means we can't sleep on those teams.

agree with the point about baltimore being a more important game out of the next two, and coming away with at least 1 win from these next 2 games will be huge.

I'm glad that they won't be gimme games. You want to peak in the playoffs, and there's no better way to prepare for that than a few winter dogfights.

If they lose to NE - they're going to be mad against Bmore so I think we will get revenge
If they beat NE - they'll have a huge confidence booster but Tomlin will keep them focused

Let's get some huge AFC wins over the next 3 weeks and go into the bye healthy and ready for the final push . . .

At the start of the season, Steelers had the 27th easiest schedule based on last year's record.

Yet, so far, the records of the five teams they've beaten is 7-24. Pretty easy to this point.

Exactly. That's the "easy schedule" you've been hearing about.

well, people have been writing off all the games other than baltimore and NE as wins. looking more closely on it though, it's not going to be that easy. just because cincy and SF sucked last year doesn't mean they suck this year
