    Have Faith (stats indicate another title)

    The Steelers have now played 78 season. The first 39 (from 1933 to 1971) were marked with futility, the most recent 39 (from 1972 to present) started with the Immaculate Reception and it's been high times ever since.

    Statistically, the following expectations can be drawn since our franchise first took off with the "immaculate" season in '72:

    • Playoff appearances: 25 berths in 39 years averages out to a trip every 1.56 years
    • Division titles: 20 titles in 39 years averages out to a division crown roughly every 2 years
    • Conference championships: 15 appearances in 39 years averages out to a trip every 2.6 years and a victory ever 4.875 seasons!
    • Super Bowl wins: 6 wins in 39 years averages out to another Lombardi Trophy every 6.5 years


    I know these don't come around exactly like clockwork but with a potential dynasty that comprises the current roster, another title is closer than it seems. With an overall winning percentage of .611 since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger (highest in the league) successful seasons are also expected.

    I chose using the numbers from 1972 to present since that was the year the forever separated the same old Steelers from the new. Before that season we were a joke, since then we've become a juggernaut.

    Ugh I hate this bullshit. Stats also indicate that Ben is in the bottom half of the league.

    15 AFCCG in 45 years. That's 1 every 3 years. Ben will get at least 2 if not 3 more shots and rings.
    HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!!!!!

    Even though the team as a whole sucked, our D still struck fear in other teams to the point no one really wanted to play us.

    All I have to say is that I like their chances going in, even more so if they make some free agent acquisitions or have a good draft.

    As long as we have our veterans, Ben and our great rookies that want to be great at the right time and everyone stays away from injuries we'll be just fine and dandy.
