You may be able to argue Tennessee or Bengals but I don't see us beating anyone in the NFC East. Suppose I am wrong on a couple of these and we are still .500.
Assuming you're speaking as a Browns fan, then I agree - you won't be able to beat any NFC East team

I get the visceral reaction to a fellow Steeler fan thinking they will do poorly this year but c'mon man. The NFC East is the hardest division in football. Those teams are pretty strong in almost every aspect. Our line against their D Lines is a no contest. Our secondary against their QB and receivers is a no contest. Those teams are all at their peaks or heading there. We are in a decline. I know you and most can't see that based on our record last year but we lost to most good teams. Like I said in another post, if by next year our two linemen get healthy and improve enough to be above average starters, that would give us a much improved line. That in turn would give Ben the added time he needs to process the info he is slow in seeing. If we can manage to draft a shutdown corner and starter at tackle and future developmental safety to take over for Clark or Troy, we could be right back in the mix. I think the young players on this team who have been slow in developing could use a little tough love that only comes from losing and seeing your crappy tape run in front of your teammates.

Just because people believe Ben is overrated and we are looking at a mediocre season doesn't mean they don't bleed black and gold. I am just not a blind fanboy who swallows up the b.s. that is being presented to us.

Bill Simmons continues to pound the Steelers

Jets (+5.5) over STEELERS

I think the Jets win this game outright. All the preseason scorn and ridicule inadvertently pushed them into "Nobody Believes In Us" mode, right?

if Mark Sanchez comes in and wins at Heinz in a couple of days, I'm going to drink heavily . . .

That is all

It bears repeating: Who is Bill Simmons, and why do we care?

Jesus, what an unbelievably negative and depressing fan you are. Do us all a favor and don't post here anymore, we don't need this shit. What Steeler fan predicts that we're going to lose to the Ravens twice and sounds happy and smug about it.

I don't want to hear any excuses this week. I know that much.

Perhaps a Steelers fan that doesn't let his team loyalty get in the way of rational thought. I'd rather see critical posts than bunch of hoopla about how the Steelers are the best team in the league. There's nothing wrong with an expert predicting the Steelers go 6-10. There are a lot of experts with a lot of opinions. Some of you act like he disrespected your mother or something or has something personal against the Steelers.

Rationality, logic and realism don't belong on this board.

Steelers are going to finish 15-1 and win the SB baby!!!
