Okay well Im going to look ahead because now the Steelers pretty much have too and they really cannot afford to lose another game here the next 6 weeks since there sitting here at 1-3. The next 6 games are against KC,@Atlanta,@Oakland,Denver,NewOrleans,and @Cleveland. Does anybody think the Steelers will run the table here and win these next 6 games. I think they have a chance if you look at all these games to win them all. KC next week coming in here is banged up they might not have Trent Green,Larry Johnson got hurt today in Arizona,Atlanta if you shut Vick down you can pretty much beat them which we have the D to do. Oakland should be a win any day of the week,Denver and New Orleans will both be tough but both games are here and the Steelers have the team it appears to beat the Broncos, and the Saints while they are 4-1 now Im still not sold that they are for real because they really havent beaten anybody very good, and struggled today against a winless Tampa team down in New Orleans. Lastly, the Browns while they are improved and have played teams like the Ravens and Carolina today tough I still think they are not very good and the Steelers should be able to beat them down in Cleveland.
After all this is said what does everybody think about there chances to win these next 6 based on what Ive said and that schedule. Ill go on record saying right here right now in my opinion in order to have any shot to make the playoffs they are going to have to win all 6 games in a row and get to 7-3 before going into Baltimore and Thanksgiving weekend. Its the only way based on the way the AFC is this year, and who the Steelers have lost the tiebrakers too already in Jacksonville,Cincy and now San Diego, its the only way the Steelers are going to have a realistic shot to make the playoffs is if they win the next 6 games in a row. Can they do it?? I think they can but its going to be a very very long tough road to climb here for them. This is clearly not the position or situation this Steelers team wanted to be in this early on in the season. If they lose to KC here next week stick a fork in them the season will be over at 1-4.
