From what I've seen, yes. They still proceed as if time of possession is the be all end all for winning a game. During the four game win streak earlier in the season, the Steelers were actually having success running the football. One might think "hey great, that sets up play action for the big play," yet they never took full advantage of that. Why? Probably because that would result in a quick score and not take much time off the clock. They need to realize the best way to take pressure off of a defense is to score. When the Steelers have played the possession game, they're just putting more pressure on the defense to win a tight game.

Since we'll be on the road, the scariest team is probably Denver. Then the Pats, then Texans. I actually think we'd be favored on the road to beat either the Ravens or Colts. None of these teams are dominant.
As for the NFC, everyone keeps saying how much tougher it is, but I'm not so sure.

The Pack. Don't really look unstoppable this year.
The Bears. That D peaked too early. Cutler in the playoffs. LOL.
Giants/Cowboys/Redskins. Nothing to see here.
49ers. Colin Kaepernick won't take this team the distance in his first try.
Falcons. Not quite sure what, but somethings missing here.

None of these teams are without flaw. A one game winner take all against one of these guys is not a monumental task.

Just saying. This season is far from over.
If we play Denver now, instead of in Day 1, we get slaughtered.
Good thing we don't play New England now. Let's be honest here.

Don't underestimate Denver or NE. Both have enormous swag and "want it." Denver has the confidence of beating us with TEBOW. Now, they have Manning to ratchet up the confidence even more. This press can and will get burned if we don't create pressure on top of that. The defense that showed up against Brady last season, Eli and Flacco this season, is the D that needs to be on the field.

Also - the mother effin offense has to earn their freaking pay for once. Enough of the D carrying the team. We're all hopin there are 11 men to carry us to victory instead of 22.

New England - still has a suspect D.

Baltimore - Defense doesn't scare anyone anymore, and firing Cam Cameron is a mistake.

Indy - they're still a work in progress.

Cincy - never know which team shows up.

Atlanta - they finally weren't able to dodge a bullet against a subpar team yesterday. Otherwise, their gimmick offense and defense isn't fooling anyone anymore.

Green Bay - they've gotten through injuries before, but in 2010 their O-line was healthy unlike now.

Giants - can't stop the run.

Seattle - playing over their heads, it'll eventually come to an end.

Rams - excellent D, but no O.

Bears - if their D doesn't force TOs, they can't score, period.

Cowboys and Redskins - their injuries continue to pile up.

Personally, SF and Denver are the only complete teams, but that's just me. Otherwise, anyone can be beat in this league.
You are dead wrong about Seattle...they are getting better as the season goes on.

Technically you said, "right now." Since we are 1-3 in the last four games...technically, you were right.
