The Steelers smell like a team in decline to me. I have the utmost respect for their organization and even though I dislike them, I admit they know how to stay competitive. I don't see Pittsburgh rolling over and slipping to a five or six-win season, but the mystique just isn't there anymore. Maybe it's the troubles and the suspensions they've recently incurred, but I think it's more than that.

I think they have become an old team in key spots and are led by only a decent coach. I think they have a franchise quarterback who is no longer loved in the their city and whose style of play will cut his career short regardless of where he ends up. I think they have limited receiver options which was a problem that plagued the Bengals' season in '09. But beyond all of that, I think they are simply outclassed by two other divisional opponents, and that can be tough to overcome for any team, no matter how storied or revered.

Rivers of Steel - I was kidding

I need to go back and find the Facebook post I made before the season started basically laughing at pre season power rankings. They had us around 15 saying we would be lucky to be 2-2 after 4 weeks. I knew we were better, but I thought we would have to find a way into the playoffs at the end of the year. Instead we have the inside track on a 1st round bye. Glad I was wrong.
