    After a few games we debate if we will go 4-12 or 6-10 or if an optimist 8-8.

    Now after 9 games we currently sit as the 6th seed.

    Once mighty KC seemingly destined for the AFC Championship game or more has as many losses as we do.

    We pick up Minkah and it transforms our defense.

    We are now a legit contender for a wildcard. Can`t wait to see how the next 7 games go.

    This year is nuts. You can`t make this stuff up.

    If Ben was healthy I’d pick them to win the Super Bowl. Haven’t seen the defense play this well since like 08-09.

    Our offense is terrible right now.. We do not have the play makers. Even when we had play makers with Ben Bell and Brown we were not good enough to win a SB. I don't think Ben makes us any better offensively.. Who would he throw to?

    As soon as he does he would probably throw his dog off a 40 story building. Dude is a nutcase.

    I agree with everything but the “legit” part. We are not a legit contender. We are a missed 43 yrd FG and questionable forward pass/ fumble call tonight from being 3-6.

    it sucks we lost Ben. This is the best defense we’ve had in a long time. Im looking forward to seeing what they can do against a good QB.

    You can't play the ifs and buts game. I could just as easily say we are a fumble, PI call, etc away from an 8 - 1 record. We should have beat San Fran. We should have beat Seahawks. We should have beat the Ravens. All you need to do is win. We are currently the 6th seed. That makes us currently in the playoffs. What more is the definition of legitimate?

    Facts are this team is scrapping while some of you can only reign down volleys of grief and doom.

    You could argue, that we could be 7-2 if not for an OT fumble and a late 4th quarter fumble

    I have had low expectations. But there isn’t much quit in this years Steelers. Defense is fun as heck to watch, sure beats the old bend but don’t break defense

    My saying we are a legit contender for a WILDCARD is not a high bar. Why is that too optimistic from where we are after this game?

    If I said Super Bowl, well then yeah, that would have been silly.

    9-7/10-6 wildcard would be phenomenal

    And your Cowboys lost another one. Yea.
    When will Jerry Jones pull the trigger on the head coach?
    And put himself in as Head coach? Run Elliot, win games
    how difficult is that?

    I don't care how ugly they are. 4 straight wins with all the injuries plus the inexperience on offense is impressive. Say what you want about Rudolph but he isn't getting much help from the rest of the offense and he is at least not costing us games so far.

    I think the whole video review system is crazy..... you can't predict how any calls are actually going to be made. I understand the irrefutable evidence process.... but not sure how that "fumble" by Goff..... that moved forward 10 yards.... wasn't a forward pass. Also the PI reviews have been horribly inconsistent. Yeah... it's a bizarre season.

    Crazy fun year so far. I mentioned in another thread how nuts would it be if we made playoffs and this turns out to be the year we go into New England and beat them. I would think Steeler fans would be walking around for weeks shaking their heads.

    I think the NFL has a lot of parity right now. Anybody can upset anyone and there isn't much separating most NFL teams.

    For example take the Steelers we are are 5-4.

    One game we got smoked by New England. But a lot of the other games were close contests.

    Steelers could of been 8-1, 7-2. Could of easily been 3-6 or 2-7. They are kind of stuck in that middle of the outcomes., last few games it's gone our way at the end of games.

    But win any way possible. It won't be pretty but you win by 1 or 40 its the same result.

    The Goff fumble was the “empty hand” rule. The ruling was that when his arm started moving forward, he had lost control of the ball. His hand may have helped propel the ball forward, but the ball was no longer in his grip. It was damn close though, and I think the call could have gone either way. The correct call on replay was to let the call on the field stand. That’s how I see it anyway. Similarly close versions of that call have definitely gone against our QBs before with equally disastrous results.

    5 seconds later he realizes he made a mistake and jumps off to try and catch the dog.

    Yesterday's game was 3 hours and 30 minutes long and also didn't have overtime.

    You talk about crazy.

    If it hit Fichtner by poolside, it would be worth it.

    I knew I wasn't crazy. Game was dragging. Part of me thinks they did that knowing they screwed up not having Steelers on majority of the US at 4pm. They wanted to double dip for ratings and have "bonus coverage"
