I like the Steelers over 8.5 wins
I'll take the over 8.5 all day.
11-5 at worst
I can't see less than 10 unless things go south pretty badly. At the same time Vegas has some kind of crystal ball a lot of times when it comes to this ****. I don't know how they do it. Not just in football either
Comparing the last two seasons I can see this team going 12-4, or 6-10. Honestly they have played it so close that one bad call, one missed f/g (or made), can make that much of a difference in a season.
Changed my predictions post draft. I had the team at 13-3 at best, 10-6 at worst, 12-4 being my realistic expectations. Now that the draft is over, I have changed it again.
My best bet: 12-4
Major reason why the team gets one more win for each "Ceiling/Floor" prediction is due to the additions of Bush Jr., Diontae and Justin Layne. Yes, Diontae is not going to replace A.B. Yes, Justin Layne could potentially come in should the worst happen assuming he is caught up. Most of all, yes, Bush Jr. needs to play a 16 game season to further unlock the defense's potential. That all said though, should even two of the three scenarios end up happening, 13-3 could be not out of the question.
Again though everyone. I am assuming 14-2 also means Cris Boswell has gotten over the "yips". Has he though?! That will be critical.
I’m optimistic so I’ll take the over.
I’m thinking 11-5. And the 5 losses aren’t because we played better teams. The 5 losses are because we loose games we shouldn’t.
It's going to be over if they are more balanced on offense and they use their 3 RB if our 3 RB are good.
With the loss of Brown, no reason to see Roethlisberger lead the league in pass attempts(or close to that) again in 2019 ... It's not the recipe for success ... You can win by using the running game more often, especially in the playoffs. ..As the pats were in the top 5 in rushing attempts and rushing yards and this is one of the big reasons for their success in the playoffs.
Over. 13-3 as always.
10-6 for me. I expect a few early losses as the Steelers figure things out in the post AB era.
I think 10-6 will win the division btw, can’t see the Browns or Ravens bettering that.
Over. I see anywhere from 10-6 to 12-4 depending on how a few breaks go for or against us. I think we’ll be back to winning the AFC North.
I'll take the over, but just barely. I was thinking 9-7 a couple weeks ago and I don't see reason to change it.
15-1 but go one and done lol
Who's the one loss to?
Kansas City?! Jacksonville?! Indy perhaps?!
Those would be my guesses.
Under. Sorry. Nothing really has changed from the end of last season (except losing the best WR and OL Coach in the NFL, and players a year older) and this board was beating up on this team about everything at season end.. We had coaches game planning against players who aren't playing and I didn't see improvement in game preparation at all last year ( the Oakland game still pisses me off). We're already 0-1 and Seattle will be a massive test to keep from going 0-2. I think we will be lucky to be .500 by the bye week. I really hope I am wrong but just haven't got that feeling we'll be better than last year. Lets see what we do against the AFC East which is one of the easiest divisions in the NFL ( which is why NE has won 10 straight titles).
I say 10-6 or 11-5, and they win the division.
I have to disagree that nothing has changed. No more Bostic or Burnett. Enter Baron, Nelson, Bush, and Layne. Without looking it up, Hayden may be the oldest on D, but I expect a great season from him. Thus, age not really a big factor. I say, the defense is improved.
For ST, they added some players via the draft. Pre-season will show whether or not Boz is back to old form.
For offense, compared to last year, they are better with the RBs that will be in camp. O-line is a veteran group. TEs we’re expecting Gentry to be a solid 2. That leaves WRs. Sure they lost AB, but they also lost all that drama. Enter Moncrief, DJ, and a camp for Switzer and I expect the group as a whole, to be solid.
well, if you believe what you post, and most of you seem assured that the B&G are good for a least 10 wins, go to Vegas or OddsShark.com (whoever they are) and bet the house on Over 8.5 wins.
No need to beef about how your team is being disrespected. The best revenge is living well. The extra $50k or more you take off these haters will help you do that.
Over, worst case 10 - 6. Best case 12 - 4. It all depends on how Boz plays and weather he gets his confidence back.
Will 10-6 get them in playoffs?
I'm glad we had a good draft because optimism is flowing throughout the forum! LOL
I say over 8.5... 10-6 is logical. Last year was a mess, but the team was 7-2-1 and only a few plays from being an 11-win team.
The problem with that though is that if Ben gets hurt in game #1 and is out for the season then you are looking a 4 and 12 record.
Vegas doesn't give you a pass because of injuries.
thats why they call it gambling, and that why there are dozens on $200MM hotels in the middle of the desert.
