    Is it true? Playoffs almost for sure if we just beat the Bengals once more?

    I can't find that thread ... the one that has the post that makes the universe as it should be ...

    The one that pointed out that we are in the #6 slot right now, and more importantly, the chances of the teams behind us winding up with a better record are almost nil, AS LONG AS WE BEAT THE BUNGLES.

    Of course with Ben back, Troy, Wood, and Deebo become more and more beast-like every week, I dare anyone to bet against us in that game!

    So - read that part again to me please, it's been a rough day!!!


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

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Well looking at the teams behind us, and the schedules this looks to be the case.. but that's providing our only lost is to the Ravens.
    I am not sure if the Colts can hold on a head of us so our chances are look even better but yes, we have to beat the Bungles.

    It'll take a little more than just beating the Bumgals. We could beat them, and still finish 7-9, probably not good enough to get a playoff spot. Need I remind you that we lost to Tennessee and Oakland, even with Ben under center? There are no "gimmes" on the schedule.

    I posted the following in the "35% chance Ben plays" thread:

    Right now, we are 6-5, tied with Cincy for the 6th and final playoff spot. We hold the head-to-head tiebreaker against them so far, but play them again right before Christmas. That's the most important game of the year. Sweeping the Bengals would assure us the tiebreaker against them, and there really isn't that much else behind them.

    Miami is a game behind us at 5-6, but they still have to play New England twice and travel out to San Francisco, so I see a 7-9 record in their future. Other than that, you have a foursome of 4-7 teams (Jets, Bills, Titans, and Chargers). Do you see any of those teams winning 5 straight games to close out the season at 9-7? I don't either.

    So, realistically, we are just battling Cincy right now in order to get into the playoffs. And if we happen to get in, even as the #6 seed, we all know what can happen (particularly if Ben, Troy, Woodley, Antonio, DeCastro, Colon, Adams, etc. are all healthy come January).
    Does that help?
