Now that the season is officially over, I think it's safe to say we underestimated this so called "soft" schedule we had. If the Steelers had taken care of business like they did today against a team like the Browns, Bears, Chiefs or Raiders...just once, we wouldn't have had to rely on the Pats, Rats or the BUNGALS to get in.
It's amazing what Polamolu really does for this defense, they just fell apart when he banged his knee up in the opener. Smith's presence was obviously missed too.
Now let's just see what kind of adjustments they make in the off-season.
