Now that our team is significantly banged up we would just be cannon fodder if we did manage to squeak into the playoffs. Even Timmy Tebow could beat us. Sometimes you have to admit it's not going to be a Super Bowl year.
I don't see it as a SB year but I aslo didn't see us still in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Until its over.. we have a shot. I damn sure wouldn't want to play these Steelers in the playoffs. Its 0-0 once you get in the dance and anything can happen.
Not sure why some feel the need to remind fans this team isnt one of our best.... I think that is obvious.
A few more weeks and we will see... then you guys can get down to the ggod stuff. Draft talk..lol.
