Steelers continue to get more good news here tonight as its just about official here on Monday night Football the Colts are leading the Bengals by 18 with just about 2 minutes left in the game. So that now puts both the Bengals,Broncos,Jags,and Jets all at 8-6 going into this week and the Steelers are just one behind all 4 of those teams at 7-7 with still 2 spots up for grabs. The Ratbirds clinch the division with this win tonight but they still have a shot to get a first round bye and an outside shot at homefield. That will be all be eliminated come Sunday if the Steelers or I should say WHEN the Steelers get their payback and defeat the Ravens here at Heinz Field. The Bengals look very bad tonight and look like they can be had very easily and arent going anywhere even if they do get into the playoffs with that horrific defense of theirs. But once again the Steelers are currently one game out of 2 possible wildcard spots in the AFC. What a great,awesome fun Christmas weekend this is going to be to watch all these games and especially this Steelers Ratbirds rematch in about 5 days. Ill come back tomorrow or the next couple days to give my latest scenarios. The Steelers once again guys are currently one game out of the wildcard spot now at 7-7. They still have a very good shot guys believe dont give up. GO STEELERS BABY RATBIRDS WILL BE OUR BITCHES IN 5 DAYS!!!

Kyle picked the great weekend to attend the Steelers game since he won the essay contest. Man, you are about to witness a major asskicking. They better be on fire for the Crows.

Yup, most people thought this game wouldn't matter to us. Now here we are 1 game back with 2 to go and this game is huge for the Steelers. This would really put some pressure on some teams for the final week!

I cannot wait for this game, it's going to be absolutely awesome !!!!

What once seemed like the impossible dream is coming closer to being a reality! Go Steelers!!!

Nothing is impossibe. We still need lots of help. What a wonderful Christmas present this would be. Steelers in the playoffs! :helmet:

12-19-2006, 10:51 AM
What a bah-humbug for the rest of the AFC if we get in, because they know we can go on the road in the playoffs and beat them !

12-19-2006, 11:07 AM
We just need too much help to get into the playoffs but I would love to win our remaining games. Finishing 9-7 after the way we started would be an accomplishment. While we are not mathmatically out of the race we need a miracle and a lot of help to get in. But TG you are right. Everyone in the AFC wants us out...because they don't want to face us!!!

Actually if the Broncos beat the Bengals. Then the Jags lose their remaining games. The Dophins beat the Jets. Then both the Titans and Bills have to at least lose one of their remaining two games. Which the Titans and Bills play this week.

Of course the Steelers have to win out. But hey the Steelers could get in.

12-19-2006, 11:41 AM
Yes we could and I would like nothing more than to get our chance in Jan. HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!!!!

Things are looking realy good right now although they still need a lot of help! The game between the Colts and Bengals was huge for the Steelers especially now because the bengals will really start to question themselves because that was probably their biggest game of the season!

Dont forget about Tennessee beating Buffalo this weekend to knock out the Bills who can still finish ahead of the Steelers if their both 9-7 because they would have a better conference record at 7-5 to the Steelers 6-6 and thus they would get in over the Steelers. I dont think that will happen though even if the Bills do beat the Titans though this weekend. They have to play at Baltimore the last week of the season and I dont see them winning that game so Im gonna say the Bills finish no better then 8-8. But until they do lose that next game you still have to take them losing into account, but again its not that big of a deal just yet.

You also want the Titans to win against Buffalo on Sunday just incase Jacksonville beats the Patriots this week because that would still leave that scenario open where the Jags and Titans could still possibly finish tied at 9-7 . If that does happen at that point the Titans would win the tiebraker over the Jags based on better division record which they break first in the tiebrakers, that would cancel out the Jags for the Steelers and then the Steelers would beat Tennessee head to head based on common opponents. The same scenario as well can happen if Denver and the Chiefs finish at 9-7 The Chiefs can cancel out the Broncos for the Steelers since they would have a better division record then the Broncos and then of course the Steelers would win the tiebraker over the Chiefs based on the win they had over them this year at Heinz Field. So basically the Steelers can actually make those head to head losses to the Jags and Broncos mean nothing if the Titans and Chiefs finish with the same record as the Jags and Broncos. They are basically in a nutshell using the Titans and Chiefs at this point as shields to possibly help them knock out the Jags and Broncos should all 4 of them finish at 9-7.

One more thing there is one more possible scenario still out there that if the Titans,Jets,and Steelers finish at 9-7 that the Steelers would lose this tiebraker based on the strength of victory tiebraker which is what would come into play if this 3-way tie does indeed happen. At that point depending on what happens with the Jags this week whether they win or lose to the Patriots and also what the Jets do in Miami Christmas night you might want to have Tennessee lose that final game to the Patriots just incase that 3-way tie with the Steelers,Titans,and Jets does not happen. If its a two way tie betweeen either the Steelers and Jets or Steelers and Titans at 9-7 the Steelers would win both of those as I said based on common opponents. Its a 3 way tie with the Titans,Jets and Steelers that will make them lose that tiebraker for sure if it does occur. Nonetheless, its going to be a fun weekend to keep an eye on all these games at 1 and 4 o clock on Christmas Eve. If anyone has anymore questions about possible scenarios or anything feel free to ask and Ill try to answer whatever I can GO STEELERS!!!

you not only make it sound possible, you make it sound probable, all of these things ae very possible, theres not one game that you think "wow, theres no way that can possible happen"

I have to hand it to 43, he's turned a board full of playoff critics instead atleast somewhat playoff hopefuls ! :towelwave:
