If “loosing” isn’t in this team’s DNA, they’ve somehow managed to “loose” 7 of their last 9. But hey, that’s just a random blip on the radar.
I doubt they will get a top 3 draft pick, these teams are worse than the Steelers who will win some games once they get healthy:
Steelers used up all their luck last year on the 11-0 run.
For me, its hard to tell if they are trying to tank or that is just how well they are able to play. I mean, dropping 3 passes in a row end of last game could be viewed as tanking by some. Hard to tell sometimes.
Don't know about Jax or any of these teams not being better until we actually do beat them. IE Jax played at Cinci and Cinci was lucky to pull that game out. We lost at home to Cinci and it wasn't that close. Injuries are not the only problem.
I'd rather be wrong and the Steelers in the playoffs, even if it's 1 and done. But I can't even see a wildcard spot, the way things have started.
If our game with GB is even close I will be amazed.
The players aren't trying trying to tank , I'm sure they dropped 3 passes in a row last season.
Plus, all you’re guaranteed with a high draft pick is… a high draft pick. If franchise QBs were there all the time then the Jets and Browns would be sharing about 57 championships right now.
I wondered if anybody would catch that? Good catch!
By the way if I were The Rolling Stones I would have never gave her the rights to sing "Satisfaction", probably the worse rendition of that song ever.
If memory serves we won a coin toss to get Sidney Crosby.
chicago, colts, eagles, miami are not that bad. they will win some games this year.
A crushing Defense and a special teams TD. The offense looked putrid. Caught the Bills sleeping. Actually looked like the Steelers starting slow.
Without a stout Defensive effort this is going to get ugly. And the injuries have eclipsed that stoutness. Add a poor offensive effort and the outcome is negative.
If we are going to have any chance offense is going to need a total 180 and try to get to 25-30 points.
I don't think anything less than that beats Green Bay at home.
So will the Steelers
Simple, Defense needs a few shutouts.
This isn't the 1976 Steelers defense
From what I have seen so far this season, they won’t need to tank on purpose.
I think you have a better possibility of trading your 1st round pick for a QB than finding a franchise QB in the draft AFTER the first 10 picks now days.
I also think more and more Franchise QBs are going to be on the move like Super Star Basketball players in the future. After 4 years Franchise QBs will be looking to move on to better teams, gone will be the days of playing your entire career with one team.
The steelers have done pretty well drafting for the most part. The Edmunds first round pick was a head scratcher for sure but you can't really say they haven't drafter decent talent. This coaching staff is just not really good at getting that talent to perform.
Mostly all NFL games are "must win".
Ben must win that's for sure. Mason handle the pressure? Canada will have to crawl out from underneath his rock.
"they need to start wining some games and they can no lose any more games"
Where you at pimply dan or pimp dylan? We need you!
Playoffs. We talking about the playoffs?
