Realistically, the Steelers are only as good as the players will take them. We aren't entitled to anything. Wins are earned, not handed out. The players must see that and step up their game.

I am really not trying to be negative. Rather, I am concerned with how the team played down the stretch to end the year. Losing 5 of our last 6 or whatever it was is not the way to go, especially when the playoffs were at stake. The way the team played against comparable and inferior competition was pathetic!

I believe it when I see it.
Exactly. This is why I am not convinced we will snap out of our funk "automatically". It's going to take some changes and some work.

love the positive attitude. Without seeing what we do in the draft and how we look coming out of training camp and pre-season it's hard to make an informed guess based only on our schedule. There's no reason to think we won't be contenders next season.

It will sure take a lot of hard work to end up 12-4 though.

10-6. Mark it down. 10-6 and a deep playoff run.

If this was a sales forecast or a budget that you present to your boss, I would expect him to ask you what are the assumptions behind it and why you believe it's realistic.

I'm not your boss ............ but I'm asking you the same questions.

The Steelers are not a team to go in long slumps (other than the 80's).

2006. 8-8, then went 10-6. 2009. 9-7 and missed playoffs, 12-4 twice next two years. 2003. 6-10, then 15-1 then a SB win. '99. 6-10, then 9-7 then 13-3.

Need I go on?

This team has the chance to fill some holes and cut some dead weight. Our schedule is rather merciful, and if 10-6 is far fetched to you then you are just being an emotional teenage girl.

Oh, yeah, look at how scary Andy Dalton is. 14 / 30 127 yards 0 TDs 1 INT.

That's a legitimate quarterback for you. Man, we should trade for him after he passed for 27 TDs in the regular season. I mean, look at that stat line. I wish Ben could have those stats! Fuck the rings, give me those stats!

Exactamundo!

With their current corps, the Bengals will be frisky, but Dalton is Flacco lite and Marvin Lewis has Andy Reid moments.

Even should the Bengals win the division a year or two, when the game is on the line they'll blow it.

14 / 28 220 yards 1 TD 2 INT

^ Roethlisberger's numbers when Andy Dalton knocked the Steelers out of playoff contention.

Andy Dalton did nothing to knock the Steelers out of playoff contention. Leon Hall, Reggie Nelson, and Ben Roethlisberger were the main culprits in knocking the Steelers out.

Wow I've never heard a truer statement. The Steelers will never do much better than .500 or become a true title contender until they get an actual franchise QB.
