Rodney Harrison just said on Football Night in America that the steelers need to depend on someone else to lose in order to make the playoffs. Am I missing something here? If we win out, we will make it correct? The power is in the steelers hands, or am I over looking something?

We should have won the past two games if we really cared about being in the playoffs. I think we lose to cincy next week anyway.

we need the bengals to lose one of their finals games to make us go through.

so he was correct.

we also need to win out and that main game is the bengals.

We control our own destiny. We don't have to "rely" on another team losing. Needing to beat a team is not the same thing as "relying on another team to lose"...

We win out, we are in. It's that simple.

Yeah, it would seem to me if we & Bengals finish 9-7, that we would prevail by virtue of sweeping them. Only thing I can think of is that they might have a better Div. or conference record.

If we win the final two games we're in. We will end with the same record as Cinci, but we'll get the final spot because we will have swept them.

yeah ok thats what I thought, thanks for actually answering the question. God I know we've been playing terrible but by the responses you'd think I asked If we belong in the playoffs or not.

If we beat the bengals next week we take over the 6th seed due to tiebreakers. Then we have to beat the browns the following week or if the bengals lose in the final week also then we are in. derpa derpa derpa

9 and 7 are you kidding. Not going to happen. It might be 8 and 8 as I pedicted. It just felt like that record all season long.

After seeing this year's schedule I predicted a 13-3 season. I can't believe I'm praying for a 9-7 season at this point.

Losing to a desperate team isnt an excuse for losing a football game. This team has major issues. I dont even feel.confident in saying theyll get that 6th seed. Despite being outplayed, they had opportunity after opportunity late in the game to put the Cowboys away. They foolishly flirted with a desperate team and lost. The Steelers deserved to lose this game.

If the steelers win out, they wind up 9-7, and Cincy would be 1-1 in those two games (we play head to head) also at 9-7. We'd win the wild card based on a 2-0 head to head record.

At this point, beating the bungholes=superbowl for someone living in Cincy. Everything else is the sundae and cherry on top.

I'm not holding my breathe. Teams in the hunt for the playoffs play well down the stretch. Cinci,Dallas,washington, indy are playing well. Steelers are 1-4 in the last 5 games. Don't cut it. Playoff teams don't lose to the chargers, browns, titans and Raiders. Just a fact. Tomlin has rode this train long enough. Time to make some changes.
