Actually, it wasn't a great game by them. If the Titans played to their potential, it would have been a complete blowout. The Steelers have caught a lot of breaks this year, but if they see Tennessee again( with Haynesworth playing) they'll get killed. The colts will also kill the steelers if they see them in the playoffs. I'd say the Ravens would too, but Cameron is afraid of them and makes the offense look like a bunch of school girls. The Ravens defense is comparable to the Steelers, but their(Ravens)offense is better (talent-wise). Too bad we have a gutless coward for an offensive coordinator. If he let them play like they've been playing the rest of the year, the division would be ours.
You can't say, "if they had this guy or that guy..." The Steelers are missing starters too, we all are. That is just like me saying, "Well if Ben doesn't fumble here, or throw a pick there, or we don't mouth off and get a 15 yd penalty on a Titan FG try..." You can't "IF" additional points or wins into game.

Plus...the Colts will have to COME TO Pittsburgh, we won't be going to the big oil tank or whatever it is up in Indiannapolis.

Did I just see you say the Ravens offense is better 'talent-wise.' How did you come up with that? They are both equally inept at times, and also pitiful...and sometimes painful.

Yeah...the Steelers caught a lot of breaks this year...where were those breaks against the Chargers and Colts?

Wow your saying the same things over and over and changing your name while doing it. Your awesome....just like your Titans. You should at least spell your own players' names correctly!

The Ravens have a better offenive line and better running backs. The problem is the offensive coordinator.

The Colts went to Pittsburgh already this year and beat the steelers. This was when the Colts were playing poorly. Now, they're probably the hottest team in football.

You beat the Chargers, what other breaks did you want in that game?

In the Charger game...umm how bout the 11 penalties called on Pittsburgh, but only two called for SD, when Harrison and Woodley were being blatantly held several times. Umm...how bout the Troy Polamalu INT for TD (luckily we had already won the game).

Colts played poorly? Yes the Colts beat Steelers in Pittsburgh, go back and watch the game film. Close game, should have/could have been closer.

I thought the Ravens already got ride of their scapegoat in Cavanagh, no?

Raven's line better, yes, I will say say that. But nothing else.

Hmm...well with Porter and Haggans leaving, it opened the door for Lamarr Woodley and James Harrison. Plus, Porter would have costed quite a penny, because there is a thing called a salary cap.

Same can be said for Alan Faneca, the guy is great, but he wanted quite a load of money and went to the news press to air his grievances...that didn't sit well in the front office. I miss the guy in Pittsburgh, but he picked a bad time to going asking for the bank as he had an off year as well.

Had they known both Simmons and Smith would be injured (out for the year) and others like Essex would be constantly dinged, they may have made a move.

My only issue was they should have grabbed a guard/tackle in the draft for the future.

Oh, we've picked up a nasty little tardate, haven't we? But FYI, Fetal Alcohol Boy, our line was no better last year WITH Faneca, so shipping his disgruntled ass off to NY is no great loss. And if we hadn't gotten rid of Porter, he wouldn't be in Miami waiting to knock the crap out of your little unibrowed fratboy, so that's working out okay. I wonder if Ray Lewis is still scared to fight him.
