    If they can't beat the Seahawks with no Wilson in primetime at home... I say tank. They will probably win and give us false hope going into early bye which sucks too. Then if they lose one of the next 3; Browns, Lions, or Bears then I say tank. Because then they got Chargers, Titans, Chiefs, Ravens twice, and Bengals.

    Ravens winning 2 games they should have lost really sucks too and factors into all of this. I know at the end of the season and looking at the standings those 2 games are going to really hurt if we try to grind out 9-8 for a playoff spot.

    AROD or RWILSON? Love to see them both, maybe we can still get to 7 wins, caught a break this coming Sun night. Bears and Lions suck. maybe steal some DIV games, but will very tough. KC is falling apart. and TENN suck.

    NEVER tank. A culture based on always trying to win is essential. Losing should never be acceptable.

    Sadly this really isn’t facetious.

    Looking at last years standings, 5 wins got you a top 10 pick and 6 wins got you a top 12 pick with some of those 6 win teams picking top 10.

    6 wins is a very real possibility. Assuming they win 3 of the next 4, they will be sitting at 5-4 heading into the teeth of their schedule. If they flop over the next four games, they may even get a top 5 pick.

    If the Lions haven't won a game by the time they play the Steelers... might as well chalk that one up as a loss. Leave it to the Steelers to lose to an 0-8 team. :facepalm:

    I think we beat Seattle and then Cleveland and Chicago obliterate our OL. If we follow that with a loss to Detroit...

    Yep, and the reason would be the Bills would game plan and make necessary changes by their coaches whereas we'd go in with exactly the same plan we used the first time.

    It all hinges on Ben. Is he going to get his act together for the rest of the season? We got a good shot at the playoffs if he gets his turnovers under control. Is he going to play just well enough to avoid getting benched? In that case we're sub .500. If he gets benched I think the odds of a low seed are good. All we need is a game manager to get into the playoffs.

    If they can't beat that team because the offense can't produce against what is on pace to be the worst defense in NFL history, it should be Ben's last game.

    Whether you consider benching him to be tanking or not is up for debate. They're not winning anything this year, would be a shame to see them waste a year in 2022 trying to evaluate Rudolph/Haskins when they could be doing that now.

    Keyword is almost here.


    Payton has had three straight losing seasons from 2014-2016. For that matter, each season that ended 7-9 in those three was worse than the last.

    "Fools Gold" is an iron sulfide mineral with a glossy metallic luster that is formally called Pyrite. The process of Pyrite formation in sediments results from the action of bacteria which reduce sulfate ions (dissolved in the pore water) to sulfide. If there is iron present, iron sulfide crystals begin to grow forming Pyrite. But bottom line is, Pyrite sounds very much like "Pirate" (homophone) and any of us true Pittsburgh sports fans know what that means...............:noose: ;)

    I believe. Seattle is like 30th against the run. Looking for a big day from Najee. Defense just has to weather the injury storm and hopefully get Tuitt playing. I’m counting on Geno Smith helping the D to up their turnover numbers.
