    We now know our opponents for next year as well, interesting reading

    Division games:
    Bengals x 2
    Ravens x 2
    Browns x 2

    AFC Conference games:
    Patriots
    Dolphins
    Jets
    Bills
    Titans
    Raiders

    NFC Conference games:
    Packers
    Bears
    Lions
    Vikings

    I'm not too sure how to read this. If we have to play Green Bay on the road late in the season, same goes for Chicago, then it will be tough, but I can very easily see us winning all our AFC games if we get the right mix of home and away

    You can "easily see us winning?" When has a Tomlin-led team ever won easily? It's alway a struggle.

    What utter and pathetic bullshit tripe. Your credibility goes straight out the window with this quote and I'll never take you seriously again.

    After an 8-8 season filled with **** results, you think we can "easily" beat the Patriots, let me tell you, when we go to Gillette next season, Brady will put a 50 on us.

    From just glancing -- we can get wins from

    Ravens X1
    Bengals x1
    Browns x2
    Jets
    Bills
    Raiders
    Lions

    That's just 8 wins and that's no gimmie's under faggot Mike Tomlin.

    We will get our asses handed to against the Patriots and Packers.

    I'm strictly talking about or games in the AFC Conference, excluding the ones in our own division.

    Pats - We have beaten New England before in the past, with and without Brady, home and away. If we get on a nice run of form, I can see us sneaking a W
    Dolphins - Currently in transition, not the greatest of teams and we have beaten them in the past when it matters (anybody else remember the 3-0 win over them?)
    Jets - Just in a total mess with the QB situation and the franchise in general, Santonio Holmes throwing a hissy fit when he wants, no leadership, could get a new head coach next year, will take time to adjust to a new system if they do
    Bills - Shocking defence that gives up huge numbers. A healthy Ben + whatever RB we choose to use next year can tear them apart
    Raiders - A team we only narrowly lost to by a FG, take out all the little things, we could very easily have beaten them
    Titans - See above

    Hate to say it but Flame looks to be absolutely correct.

    I have no confidence in Colbert knowing what he's doing to make us better. None. He's a top end drafter to me. And with Rooney still stuck in the 1970's as far as not using free agency seriously? We are fu&ked.

    What do you mean, I always talk academically, usually it's very extreme, but it's the sour truth.

    Flacco's still our bitch though.

    If free agency was the answer then the Redskins and Cowboys should have won multi Super Bowls the last 10+ years....lol You keep harping on free agency......The Steelers have no cap room....lol They will have to restructure a bunch of contracts and cut many of their own players just to get under the cap......

    With the cap room they do create I'm sure they will look to keep some of their own free agents......

    Yeah, but those two great free agent additions from this past season, RGIII and Alfred Morris, have propelled them to the division championship for the first time since 1999. They are living proof that free-agency works.

    What's that? They were not free-agents? Never mind...

    The Steelers have no cap room....lol
    What is that? Is that reality calling? You are absolutely correct. We are not going to get A List free-agents to come here and play for a case of Chiclets.

    Working the draft has kept us consistently in the conversation for being one of the best teams in the league. Making changes out of panic for a bad season is what bad teams do, not the Steelers.
