    This weekend is huge!!

    I know this states the obvious because it is Rat bird week. But If we take care of our buisness. I see Cincy losing in Detroit and Cleveland who I think is on the downslide with Weeden. But I see them losing in Green bay. We can pick a game up on everyone with a win.. Plus an awful lot of momentum if it plays out like this. Potentially can cure some of the problems with this team mentally. Really could be the week that can turn our season around. I know there is still some holes to fill but a big part is this team needs to start believing in themselves. This could be the start of that

    I agree. We win, and there's some excitement, a little momentum, though still a long way to go.

    We lose, and I think we're all but done. That would be a hole so deep, virtually no team could dig out of it. 1-5 with 2 divisional losses is death.

    I would pay good money to see that one.

    This weekend is huge, the next weekend is huge and all the following weekends are huge, the Steelers have left very little room for error, by having to chase three teams for the division lead after 5 or 6 games depending on whether or not a team has had their bye week.

    The Steelers in all likelihood don't have to win every game, but they probably have to win every division game that is left on their schedule.

    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB

    Realistically the Steelers can't lose more than 2 games to have a real shot at a playoff spot.

    If the rest of the division tanks and the Steelers lose outside the division, they may be able to win the AFCN at 9-7, but yes, they have a margin of no more than 2-3 games the rest of the season, with a lot of tough contests still ahead of them.

    I think Shawn is breathing clean air...He is right. The Steelers can not lose more than 2 games moving forward. If the two come in the AFCN...They aren't going anywhere. You need all the lights at Hines field to shine in this hole they dug just to see if anyone is down there. It is the ugly...cold reality of where they are at this early.
