    My thoughts exactly. No way we get swept by the division. While the Browns are getting better, they are STILL the Browns until proven otherwise.
    We can easily split with Baltiwhore and the Bungles.

    On paper, we should sweep the Rats and Browns and Geno Atkins should kill Ben twice. I say 4-2 in the division.

    7-9 that's my prediction, definitely a rebuilding year regardless of what Colbert is telling us. The bad news is the following year will be rebuilding as well as the Steelers say good bye to Keisel, Taylor, Clark and Polamalu in all likelihood. It could be a rough few years for the fans.

    Let's take the optimist's view, shall we?

    We will likely be favorites in every game at Heinz this year (maybe the Ravens and Bengals games should be close to pick 'ems, because those tough division games are always close), but shouldn't we be able to beat the Titans, Bears, Bills, Lions, Dolphins, and Browns at home? Darn tootin' we should. Not saying that we will win all those games (usually, there is a loss or two in there...maybe Chicago, Detroit, or a division rival bites us at our place), but every one of those games is certainly winnable for us.

    On the road, we are likely underdogs in New England, Green Bay, Baltimore, and Cincinnati...I'll give you that. All tough games. But shouldn't we be able to go in the road and beat Christian Ponder's Vikings, Mark Sanchez's Jets, Matt Flynn's Raiders, and Brandon Weeden's Browns? Heck yeah, we should.

    Remember this team still has Roethlisberger, some useful weapons for him, and a defense that didn't just suddenly forget how to play overnight. With everything seemingly against us last year, we still finished .500. If we don't experience the degree of injuries that we had last season, what is stopping us from contending for the playoffs? I don't understand how someone could say that 7-9 is our CEILING for next year...that GUARANTEEING NINE LOSSES. I sure don't see 9 guaranteed losses on that schedule.

    If 7-9 is our ceiling, then we must have a Jadeveon Clowney level floor.

    The Steelers are one injury away from Jadeveon Clowney, IMHO.
