Newbie here. No better way to start than to rustle some feathers a bit.
Although I understand the media has, at times, been overly critical of Steelers teams, I don't see where the Steelers play has warranted any positive feedback thus far. The offense it absolutely horrible. We beat a bad texans team, barely beat the Browns, albeit in a hurricane, and had trouble with a ravens team with a rookie QB, at home. The only decent team we played beat us, with only 15 points, and registered 8 sacks on Ben and 9 total. If I had to pick a winner straight up in this game, I would go with Jacksonville on the road. I won't count us out, and I hope I'm wrong, but I can't blame the pundits for slammin this team right now.
Our D on the other hand is playing great and can solely keep us in games. If our Offensive line can start putting even mediocre performances together, we'll have a chance every week, no matter who we're playing. Hopefully Simmons being out may actually help this line, at least a little bit.
