    SuperBowl or Bust - 2019/2020 Edition

    I've been on the fence this offseason. A lot to be excited about for sure, but at the same time a lot of questions. Can we get back to the playoffs let alone get to the 'ship and bring home #7?

    I've finally settled on yes and yes.

    I've always been a believer that the formula for a championship in the modern NFL is built on the play of your QB and D. And I'm confident that we've got a QB that's now been unshackled and a complete D that now has the pieces that can develop at every level over the course of the season.

    All the focus is on the team investing in the high profile skill players. But in the NFL, it all starts up front in the trenches. And I think we're stacked on both lines. The biggest difference I see this year vs previous year's is my high expectations for Tuitt and Hargrave. I expect each of them to play consistently at a high level that rivals the play of Cam Heyward and I see this having the biggest impact on our turn around.

    We have so much overall speed on D and it's just going to take some time, but come November/December, I see this unit beginning to gel and start to make a run as one of the best D's in the league.

    On O, I see it taking some time for everything to come together, but not having to force the ball to AB opens up a ton of possibilities. I'm not sure who's going to step up in the WR corps, but I think it's going to be either Washington or Switzer in a big way. I hope to see a sharing of the RB load between Conner and Samuels.

    I'm going to make a couple of crazy predictions beyond the SuperBowl for this season. We're going to have 2 candidates for O and D MVP with off the chart stats. Don't be surprised to see Jimmy Conner and TJ Watt putting up numbers at a pace never before seen in Pittsburgh. And we're going for some big numbers. 20 TDs and 20 Sacks.

    This is going to be a fun season. And the real key to getting #7 is our collective fan base believing in this team.

    Wave your towels. Scream your lungs out. Get a little crazy.

    Every moment counts. Every Sunday matters.

    There may be times when we question these guys and this team, but keep the faith.

    It may not be clear right away the path that we're on, but by week 12 or 13, I think everyone's going to start seeing the path forward.

    Who ride?

    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.
    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    I see the defense being a much improved unit this year. The sky is the limit. It all comes down to execution.... winning the turnover battle and making FGs.
