Agreed. We obviously need better draft picks. And Cincy and Browns are no guaranteed wins. This team sucks!

Let's be realistic. There's nothing compelling to back that up.
Team from recent history have proven that going into the playoffs, even just being on a two game winning streak, can use that momentum to make a lot of noise. I don't think we can but there is that little part of me that believes everyone can get healthy and start playing lights out and go on a run. I know its farfetched but it has been done.

Win two games.
Get on a roll.
BB gets back to his MVP-type of form.
No fumbles.
No fumbles.
No fumbles.
Win seventh SuperBowl.

Also, it can't be understated how important it would be to get Ike Taylor back.

And, Keenan... and Cortez.

Here is the depth chart, 1-5... and a safety*:

1. Ike: OUT
2. Keenan: OUT
3. Cortez: OUT
4. Victorian: starting
5. Brown: starting
6. Golden: nickel back

*[And, Golden is the third-string safety.]

I said after the loss Sunday that it's almost the definition of insanity to expect anything different than what we've been seeing, but I still feel that this team could put it together these last two games and go into the playoffs with a bit of momentum. I'll probably realize Sunday how stupid this comment was, but I still feel like it's possible. How healthy the DB's are (among MANY other things) is going to play a big part in that becoming a reality, though.

Come on, Steelers. Don't make me look like a moron...again.

Yes it is hard to believe. The way the Steelers are playing, it seems pretty hopeless. There are moments of pure joy and suddenly we shoot ourselves in the foot (No offense, Plaxico). I would not be surprised if Andy Dalton and the Bengals come over, run a no huddle offense, and destroy our decimated secondary. Neither Polamalu nor God himself will be able to save us. I still have hope and will still watch the game, but I will not be surprised one bit if I wind up shutting it off at halftime.

Lets be optimistic. We play our last two games at home, against teams that we have owned in the past.

I understand that people are down on this team, whether it be injuries or peoples clouded mind about how much Tomlin sucks at his job (he does not, btw). But to say that we cannot beat the Browns and Bengals?? I think thats a crime in Pittsburgh, I am pretty sure of that.
