You guys a are soooo funny
One week the team is useless, the next we are SB favorites, lose and its time to clean house, 1 win and "nobody wants the meet the Steelers in the playoffs".
Now we are back at having no chance after JUST LAST WEEK peoplen were convince we are "just hitting our stride" for a great playoff run.
If we win the next two ya'll will start crowing again.

Such is the nature of being fans of a team as schizophrenic as ours.
BINGO, on $

You watch any of the games?
the problem with this year is the Steelers are engaging in the art of illusion. And like all good magic, no one can figure out what the truth is so we flip and flop and overreact to each game. Is this a BAD team that overachieved in some of it's wins (such as the giants and the rats) thus giving us the illusion of a SB run or is this a GOOD team that underachieved against pretty much the entire AFC west (with the titans thrown in for good measure) thus giving us the illusion of another short exit in january.
I seriously doubt anyone can tell any of us what the identity of the steelers is right now. and as a result, we're all losing our collective minds......
No, not since yesterday.

Carolina just whooped the Falcons. What does that prove? Nothing.

We are 7-6, neither horrible nor great. We could go on a hot streak like last years Giants or fall flat. But the inconsistency of this 7-6 team makes it impossible to have confidence either way. That is why these extreme swings in our expectation are silly.

14 regular season wins against the Chargers and a 4-8 team comes in and hands the Steelers a smack down. Under Tomlin we have had a lot of records crumble because he or his staff doesn't have it.
We used to never give up TD's in the first quarter.
We used to not allow back to back 100 yard rushers.
We used to win most of our openers.
Watch this season, we will lose the record of never losing to an afc north/division rival in the playoffs.
Actually it proves that Carolina has a pretty good formula for beating/competing with the Falcons ... (they were a Cam fumble on 3rd and 1 from winning the first game in ATL)
