Re: Willie Parker Out for Season
I'm not a Steelers fan obviously, but I don't think I'm overly biased in saying that team has a ton of flaws. It seems like they have beat the teams they should but also have been beaten by teams they should never have lost to. I blame that on coaching. Hopefully I'm right and Tomlin isn't the right man for the job. I can't believe that Pittsburgh lost to Denver, New York, and Arizona. Who have they beaten other than Cleveland and Seattle? The Cleveland game they were clearly out played and the Seattle game was played when Seattle was in a major funk.
I wonder who the Steelers would be favored against in the playoffs? I think they will probably be a pick um favorite against any team they play. Maybe they would be getting the standard 3 points for being a home team in the divisional round, basically a pick um. Looking at potential playoff teams I don't see one team that they have any advantage over other than experience.
New England- No way
Cleveland- Pick um and possibly Cleveland would be expected to win
Jaguars- Jags dominated them last week, score wasn't indicative of game.
San Diego- No way favorite
The Steelers will probably be lucky to win one playoff game and would be extremely lucky to win two. I hate the Browns just as much as the Steelers but I just think the Browns would beat them at this point.
But at least Steeler fans and Browns fans can talk about the playoffs. The Bengals are incredibly inept and somehow regressing as a franchise. Pathetic.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
