    We make the playoffs according to SI!

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/w ... ing/1.html


    12. Pittsburgh. Surprise: They survive a month without Ben Roethlisberger to eke out the final spot over New England and Houston, assuming Roethlisberger's ban is only four weeks. -- I hope Dennis Dixon gets a shot the first four weeks, because he's good enough to win with. But they'll need defensive playmaking from LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu to win at least twice while they make do at quarterback. This is the true test of a good coach, making sure your team wins when it's not at its best. Mike Tomlin didn't do a great job at that last year. But he's young, he's still learning, and I think he'll respond better this summer in camp and in September.

    Sorry Gloom and Doomers

    We should make the playoffs assuming Ben is Ben when he returns. If we can go at least 2-2, I'm confident Ben & the recharged running game can win 9 of the last 12.

    Last year SI predicted the Saints to go 6-10. So their prediction doesn't mean too much.

    Lets skip the regular season and go with what SI says!!!! I think we make the playoffs too, but I'm pretty sure the NFL doesn't care about either of our predictions and still play the regular season, just in case....

    SI has more than one set of predictions. You reference Peter King.

    Looking to Peter King for accurate predictions is like going to MC Hammer for financial advice.

    King record?

    07 He predicted the Bengals for the North, with Steelers missing the playoffs. He had the Saints and Chargers in the SB
    - Real result? Steelers won the North. Giants over NE in the SB.

    08 he had the Browns from the north and we miss the playoffs entirely. NE and Dallas in the SB
    - Real result- We win the division and the SB over the Cards. He had NEITHER SB team making the playoffs at all.

    09 He had the Steelers winning the North division, and NE over the Bears in the SB.
    - Real result, we failed to make the playoffs. Saints and Colts in the SB.

    Last three seasons he was dead wrong about our division every year. Did not hit on a single SB participant.

    While I am not a hater, Peter King is the last one I would look to for any kind of confidence in the Steelers. He is more like the "kiss of death".

    Or like going to Britney Spears for a geography lesson. Or was it Jessica Simpson who said "I've never been overseas" when asked if she'd ever been to Canada.
