    Watch out AFC....

    The Steelers have been suffering from two issues. Injuries of course and self-induced mistakes. They are (recently) a good team playing bad football. Having said that, we ARE getting healthy. Mistakes can be corrected.

    Maybe it's the yinzer in me, but I'm sensing another wild card deep playoff run. This team could be extremely dangerous in January.

    If this team can get Ben back and can gel up front on the OL then yes, I believe they can make a deep run in the playoffs. There won't be a favorite out there that will wanna play the Steelers come January. Today was a huge statement game that the Steelers aren't going anywhere!!!

    It'll be on Goodell's staff meeting agenda this Tuesday for sure.
    This game could start a run, and if we get healthy, we are dangerous.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    Great win by the Steelers today. Congratulations - things are starting to get interesting.

    I agree that avoiding the Steelers in the playoffs is what most teams would choose. I also think that the AFC, although weak at the bottom, has a far stronger top than the NFC. I don't see any teams over there that are fearsome (yes, I know that as a Pats fan I must acknowledge our failures against the Giants). But all the good teams have flaws this year - I think any of about eight teams (5 in the AFC, 3 in the NFC) could step up and claim the Lombardi trophy.

    I might add SF in there too.

    And wouldn't it be great if we beat the SeaHags in a SB (preferably with a Ben QB sneak ) again!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Close - but swap out the Falcons for the 49ers.
