    Yeah, but there's a big goose egg for the Steelers in the Super Bowl win column.... like Vikings, Bills, Eagles and and 70's Rams.

    Add a SB this year and that decade looks a whole lot better.

    I'm shocked none of the Packers teams throughout the decades made the list. They were bad in the 80's... but 90's to present, they've been successful more often than not.

    When people complain that the Steelers are terrible because they are not as good as the Patriots, its still meaningful to say that they are arguably better than 30 other teams. (Not the best, lots that needs improving... but not terrible.)

    The steelers have had some terrible team times but the killer B's era was the most disappointing era in steelers history, because they have so much underperformed, especially in big moment.The good winning percentage of the steelers in this decade are empty stats((especially since 2011)

    I prefer the decade of the 1990's of the steelers.

    Yep... the 90's > 10's. Awesome defensive talent in the 90's... with mediocre offenses. 2010's have been the polar opposite, with much more underachieving.

    One of Tomlin's family members must have made this so ppl can focus on the win loss record

    The Steelers were always held to a higher standard than the rest of the league. That's what made them different.
    Lately, not so much.

    Many say it's because of the pats that the steelers have not had much success in this decade, but they have faced the pats only once in this decade in the playoffs .... The steelers have not even been able to beat Tebow in the playoffs and 42 points were not enough to beat Bortles in a playoffs game in this decade.

    So frustrating and disappointing.

    Not trying to be greedy but with the talent this team had it should have been so much more. To me the Steelers have underachieved tremendously. Several playoff losses were nothing short of head scratch moments. The Superbowls that they did win could have easily been defeats by a play here or there and the one they lost could have been a victory by the same token. Where we are is where we are though when it comes to Championships but this organization is almost always in contention and as a fan you can't ask for much more than that.

    I'm confident they can still pull it off, but it seems I'm in the supreme minority anymore.

    With Ben at QB, I think they have a shot at it every year.

    This year I think they will be on a mission, out to prove how close they are, angry with all the criticism they have received and that they are better off without AB and Bell.

    I don't think they will with this coaching staff. I hope I'm wrong.

    It would have to be a freak accident by his own teammates.
    Otherwise, the refs will penalize the other 31 teams in the league for Brady's mishap.

    I've generally been a Tomlin supporter for the most part, but I will say if the defense looks like swiss cheese with the secondary looking lost again I can be added to the time for change at head coach committee.

    With that said, I'm optimistic they'll look a lot different on pass defense especially this year. We'll see.

    I have a feeling to just from what the new coach is doing with the secondary, Butler focusing on what he is good at the Linebackers. If they can get a focused game plan every game week it will be a huge change

    I agree. Steelers will tear opposing teams up. Juju will lead the league in yards, Conner will be top 3, and Ben top 3. Except this time the team will have chemistry... fire... and Tomlin will be quiet as he takes the league under notice.

    We will go 7-9 but still lol
