    10 Reasons Pittsburgh Will Place at the Bottom of the AFC North


    Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

    Steeler Nation is under the assumption that now the reset button has been pushed with the upcoming season just around the corner. Fans are under the impression that they will just automatically return to greatness and win the AFC North with ease. Newsflash Pittsburgh Steelers’ fans: The AFC North will never be the same! For years the Baltimore Ravens have been on your coattails, trying to steal the AFC North crown. The Cincinnati Bengals have been working hard for respect and the Cleveland Browns, well let’s just call the baby ugly. Anything around .500 for them is considered reason for a parade. In the past there was absolutely no competition coming from the AFC North for the six-time Super Bowl Champs.
    Just ask linebacker Lamarr Woodley who arrogantly responded on NFL Network about Joe Flacco’s chances of ever getting to a Super Bowl two years ago. “In order for them to get to the Super Bowl, they have to beat us, and we're not gonna let that happen once we get that close. So that's not gonna happen in this lifetime”. The ridiculously large ring on Flacco’s hand would beg to differ.
    Pittsburgh’s days of bullying the rest of the division and reserving their spot in the postseason are over. There are 10 reasons I believe that the uphill battle for the Steelers will be entirely too much for the “Black and Yellow” to overcome. With all of the offseason changes this team has had, the only place this squad is going is to the bottom of the AFC North. That’s right folks, not second, not second to last but dead bottom of the barrel, where the sticky icky is last. Yes, I know it’s a bold prediction, but while Pittsburgh sat idly by, having a completely sub-par year due to injuries, the rest of the division got better. Hold on to those “terrible towels” because Pittsburgh, you are in for some heartbreak this season.

    How bout 10 reasons the Steelers Will Win the SuperBowl?

    1. Troy is healthy
    2. Ben is healthy
    3. Woodley is healthy
    4. Our DBs are primed to be on of the top units in the league
    5. There's a load of young talent. If we get anything out of guys like Sanders, Worilds, McClendon, Tez, Adams, Gilby, DD, or any of the rookies, it'll be gravy with the returning health to this team.
    6. Every RB on the roster now runs violently.
    7. We've got an OLine of young athletic 1st and 2nd rounders for the most part. This team hasn't gelled since Wayne Gandy left town.
    8. Timmy's turning a corner where he can just play and not think. The guy is one of the most athletic all around LBs and his time to take over is now.
    9. Our WRs have something to prove. From AB proving he's a #1 to Sanders proving he's got game to Plax proving he can still contribute in the RZ.
    10. When everyone else counts us out, we seemed to get it together. Keep it coming. Let's keep hearing how the Steelers are gonna be mediocre this year.

    If key players stay healthy, there's no reason we're not back to being the best in the league.

    Numbers 1-3 and 7 are the most important on your list. If just one of those don't happen and it will be a very long season.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Really, in my mind the one that absolutely has to happen is Ben being andstaying healthy, without that, the others are irrelevant.


    1.15) Ryan Shazier - ILB/OLB
    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE

    I think I'd go 50/50 on Ben + great defense.

    I like it.

    But Ben has to be healthy and we need Heath down the stretch. They were both having the best seasons of their careers until getting drilled last season.
