Against the Jags and the Bengals and end up 3-0 going into the bye week they really have a shot I believe to start running off wins every single week when you look at the schedule coming up. The Steelers next 7 games after the bye week are against SD,KC,ATL,OAK,Denver,New Orleans,and Cleveland. There is no reason to believe looking at that schedule and who we play at home especially in that group of teams that the Steelers cant start off 9-1 or even 10-0 for that matter. I think a lot of people in the media and around the league the more I listen are really underestimating the Steelers and how good they really are. Everybody I hear keeps saying they are going to lose to the Jags this week because Ben never plays well coming off an injury and blah blah blah. People dont realize that this Steelers team doesnt fear much and dont really care who or where they play for that matter. This team has been through more tough road playoff games then any team in the NFL the last few years and pretty much won them all. This Steelers team is solid and it knows how to win games especially big ones.
So everybody can keep saying how good Cincy and Baltimore look based on there wins Sunday this past week thats all fine and stuff. The Ravens havent proved anything and wont for awhile because beating a mediocre Tampa team to me doesnt show me anything,and the next 2 games they have the Raiders and Browns 2 of the worst teams in the AFC. I would rather be playing playoff caliber teams early on in the year like Miami,Jags,and Cincy rather then some of these scrubs teams that the Ravens and Bengals will play early on. The bottom line is the Steelers when all is said and done will be there in the end. This Steelers team is very good and is no fluke of a super bowl winner and is for real, and I am going to pick them to win these next 2 games against the Jags and Cincy. I know how good this team is and I believe that they will beat both of them and maybe then people around the league will start taking the Steelers more seriously as a serious threat in the AFC once again.
