Serious contenders normally steamroll inferior teams, albeit upsets do happen but not 4 or 5 times in one season. The Steelers historically (even before Tomlin) have rough games against the bottom feeders in the NFL.

Why?
I think at this point everybody should be expecting a loss to each and every bottomfeeder team we play.
It happens almost every time. In fact, we've become very consistent at it.

Have you even watched the Giants play this year. They have looked absolutely horrible at times. Yeah they are 8-5 which is ONE game better than us. They lost the opener to the Cowboys. They got BLOWN OUT by both the 49ers and the Bengals. And by the way lost to the Steelers recently. There's not much difference between us and them. Btw, the Giants looked even worse last year in the regular season.

Whether the Steelers turn it around or not I can't say, but to conclude that they won't just because they don't look good has proven to be a false notion in today's NFL. We have the talent and just need momentum.

And for the person who said they hope we don't make the playoffs, that's retarded and I doubt that you are a true Steelers fan.

Therefore, they have the potential to put a run together. Could they tank? Sure, it's possible, but not likely. The Steelers will make the playoffs. If they put it together and play up to their full potential, they have the ability to beat any team in the league.
They absolutely have the players without a doubt. That's what makes it all the more frustrating. I would love to take their best offensive games and combine them with their best defensive games, the problem is they're just not doing that. They haven't played to their full potential yet. I'm sure some of that has to do with the amount of injuries they've had this year, but we all know they're making too many stupid mistakes. I would love to see the Steelers make a run every single year, but realistically that just doesn't happen. And yeah they DO have the potential to beat any team in the league (did Carolina really beat Atlanta yesterday????), but I can't see them beating the likes of the Pats, Houston, Denver in Denver and I'd even add the Colts at this point. Just not this year, next year different story.

Mind you if it happens and you're correct, I'd be the first one to say YAY I was wrong, but I'm kinda not optimistic enough to say that just yet.

It is just a mediocre team, that was the last chance saloon to show me they could beat up on a lesser opponent and they got beat up themselves.

The team is flat far too often, the defense keeps on keeping on but the offense is spotty at best.

Add to that mix a coach who clearly cannot manage a game, and brings no table.

Not that it should matter, but a third of the guys I watch football with (family) are from Jersey/NYC and are huge Giants fans, the other third being Ravens fans, and then my gang. They don't look any more horrible than the Steelers. In a game of almosts and inches, 1 game is huge. I'm sure a lot of the optimists would argue that all it takes is 1 game for the Steelers to turn it around, or can attribute a huge win to 1 play. With only 16 games, 1 game I'd say is pretty big. We beat them, so what? We beat the Ravens, so what? What does that mean exactly other than we are capable of pulling out a win. I think that both of those wins have been negated by some pretty bad losses. Injuries aside, every time this version of the Steelers get a big win, they take a step back. I'm still holding out hope, but I can't keep hoping for something that just isn't there (or at least proven not to be there, so far) If they correct all the mistakes, great - they also have to get up for these games, which is apparently a problem for them.

Sorry, I just don't see the positives after they had every reason to be able to take a step in the right direction after pulling a W out of their ass in Bmore. 2 god-awful losses in 3 weeks. I hope for 3 wins. I also hope that in those 3 wins I see some changes in their energy and discipline. A win is a win, but we all know what an eye test is - and last year's 12-4 Steelers were frauds, much like this year's Ravens.

This team has thrown in far too many shitty performances to take seriously as a SB contender.

How many times have they played a complete game of good football on all 3 teams for a whole game?

There have been less real good performances than clunkers like last night.

We have lost games to: Cleveland, The Titans, Oakland, and now SD and we looked like shit against KC too.
