The Bengals aren't going to take over shit. I'm sorry, does Andy Dalton actually scare any of you? Sure, they have a decent defense and one - count it, ONE - great receiver but that's it. The fact that some of you are scared about the Bengals taking over the AFC North is laughable. Please, that title is ours for the next 3 - 4 years straight.

The Bengals will be doing their best to not be the bottom feeder of the division and, as always, the Ratbirds will do their best impersonation of a playoff team then crumble when games actually mean something. A lot of you have to take a step back and look at this thing logically - look at that schedule. Who pops out to you as a potentially scary team? There's two for me: The Pats and Packers and that's it. But, since we tend to play to our potential against good teams, I have a feeling we'll be fine.

If anything, we should be worried about losing to Oakland and the Rams again.

If it stays down, another 8-8 campaign. Let's not forget who is behind center for the Steelers.
Do you honestly believe Roethlisberger is the problem?

Getting back to the topic at hand, the AFC North is weaker than it has been over the past 4 years - and in general the AFC stinks except for New England and Denver. And how much longer will Peyton play? And then Brady a few years later?

Maybe by 2016 9-7 will be enough for the #1 seed in the AFC.

I agree that the AFC is on its way down, but I think the top seed will still have 12 wins or so (technically, 16... by the Steelers).

I'm surprise that some people think that the schedule is easy. NFC North is one of the best, if not the best, divisions in the league now.

The Steelers won and lost a lot of games that came down to the final drive. 2 losses in OT. They used to find a way to win most of those games. This year, they found a way to lose most of them. They're not very far from being a playoff team again. In fact, they are the Ben pick against Cincy from being a playoff team. I expect the following next season.

This team is not that far away. Stay a little healthier, get some luck, this is a SB caliber team again. There is no team in this years playoffs to be fearful of except maybe Denver right now. None of these teams are solid on both sides of the ball, they all have flaws.

Plain and simple, even if we don't get a running game going. IF Tomlin can tighten up the fundamentals on offense. Dropped passes and fumbles.... we WILL win the afc North. Draft picks, and new coaches should only make us better. Not scared of the Bengals whatsoever.

Pitt 11-5 maybe 10-6
Cinci 9-7
Baltimore 9-7
Browns who gives a fuck?

^ Ah I see where the word "entitlement" comes from now. That is a bad attitude to take because you don't have to work if you think something will be given to you.

Andy Dalton threw 27 tds this year. Roethlisberger has thrown for that number exactly once in his 9 seasons. Dalton is legit. Just because he isn't league MVP in his second year doesn't mean he isn't capable of stealing games.

The Bengals front 4 is pretty damn good - maybe the best in the league. Atkins is a beast and Peko and Johnson are very good.

The Ravens offense has scored more points than the Steelers offense in 4 of 5 years under Flacco. The duel comment was meant to be funny but it is also partly true. That is a very sad fact.

I say 10-6. Takers?
Home - I'm going to say we lose 1 game at home this year in a close one. I'm looking to Bengals, Rats or Bears Lions as 1 of those losses.

On the road:
Loss to a "bottom feeder" plus 1 division loss on the road, coupled with l1 loss to Green Bay or Patriots - we will not lose both of those IMO.

12-4 and division, #2 seed. There - because I worship the devil and hate everything about Ben and everything that isn't Marty ball.

Thanks for the life tip, I appreciate it.

Here we go again. Stats, stats, stats. I mean, if you can't think logically about how stats mean absolute dick then I don't know what to tell you. Congratulations, he threw 27 TDs but hasn't done anything in the playoffs and has (arguably) the second best receiver in the game behind only Megatron. Newton is still a better quarterback than Dalton is and Cam has no legitimate help and no defense, but is still capable of winning games. Is he better than Roethlisberger? No, not right now, but Cam will be eventually. Andy, on the other hand, regressed this season. He doesn't throw accurately and can't make the deep ball to anyone other than AJ because his other receivers can't make circus catches and make him look really, really good.

But, no, let's keep on the statistics argument for a second. Here's a comparison, are Matthew Stafford and Andy Dalton better than Troy Aikman? I mean, they to be, right? Stafford has thrown for 5,000 yards and Aikman never threw for over 4000 in his career. Dalton threw for 27 TDs and Aikman's season-high in TDs was 23 back in '92. His career QBR was 81.6, too. Wow, Troy Aikman must have sucked! Stafford and Dalton are already better!

Oh, wait a second, he has three Super Bowl rings. Oh, an adding to that, his career QBR in Super Bowls was 111.9. What does this mean? It means that he didn't put up flashy stats or throw for 50 TDs, but he knew how to win in big games and play well in those games, just like Ben.

I know what you're going to say, too. This was a long time ago! Apples and oranges! Okay, Lloyd. Let's get more current. Look at these statistics ...

422 / 670 - 5177 yards - 43 TDs / 19 INTs - 96.3 QBR

Wow, those are some flashy stats! Know who they belong to? Drew Brees. Why is this significant? The Saints went 7 - 9 this season and are picking ahead of the Steelers in the 2013 draft. So, great, he threw for over 5000 yards and 40 TDs, but didn't win shit and in fact, did worse than the Steelers this year.

Stats =/= success. Parroting statistics is ridiculous and makes you look like you have no clue what you're talking about.

Then why hasn't Flacco won anything? The Steelers and Ravens defenses have been very similar the last 5 years. They've both been described as 'elite' and 'best in the business', yet Roethlisberger is the only one to have won anything between these two. Why is that? Why can't Flacco win big games?

Ben is a better Quarterback and has shown to be in the playoffs with his success and his rings. For you to say he couldn't beat Flacco, despite only losing to him twice in his career, makes you look like an idiot. How is it that Flacco is 0-2 against Ben in the playoffs, but could 'out-duel' him?

You have to take a breath and settle down with the parroting of statistics and hate for Ben because it's embarrassing.
