That looks about right, since 2012

Record against losing teams (-.499): 11 - 9 / .550
Record against awful teams (-.250): 6 - 4 / .600

Barely :500 against shitty teams they should have dominated.  Where the blame lies for that, I don't know.  Mainly against the roster, I suspect.

And, for Tomlin's tenure:

Record against awful teams (-.250): 21 - 6 / .778

Flirting with 80%.  Not terrible...not awesome either, but nowhere near as bad as its been portrayed.  I think I'll give that article its own thread later.  Worthwhile information, IMO.

I like these two paragraphs from
http://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/pittsburgh-steelers-opinions-reactions-news-updates/2014/11/25/7280049/the-time-has-come-for-the-rebuilding-efforts-among-the-steelers

With five games to go, the Steelers' defense will have some depth options heading into their next two games. While Jones won't play in Week 13, he could be back in Week 14 against Cincinnati, a team that may have lost right tackle Andre Smith for the season. With Jones going at Andrew Whitworth and Jason Worilds going after a backup, it would seem the Steelers' front-three combination of a healthy McLendon and the continued improvement of Tuitt and McCullers might give veterans Cam Heyward and Brett Keisel a big boost.

Shazier's athleticism and familiarity with the defense will be challenged on Sunday when Saints tight end Jimmy Graham gets on the field, but a healthy Ike Taylor on the outside could move William Gay back to his best spot, inside, to help with high-low coverage on Graham.

So the Saints Bucs have lost to the rest of the division.


FTFY.

The AFCN would have no losses (1 tie) to the NFCS... except for the Steelers losing to the Bucs.

But here, let me offer you a thousand excuses about injuries and youth on defense, and and and and and.

I fully expect that the Steelers, with HFA in the elements, coming up against a 4-7 Aints team on a short week, will need to pull a fucking rabbit out of the hat in a squeaker.  If we win at all. 

yeah, if I'm betting this week, I take the Saint + whatever points and go to sleep before the game.  Easiest money ever.

Honestly, wasn't aware of Tomlin's week following the bye record (6-1).

Also, what's even more interesting, check the comments.  There's a poster there (cassidy977) that links to an article he wrote (to make life easy for everyone, I'll just add it HERE) that appears to dispel the "Tomlin is terrible against terrible teams" mantra.  

Very, very interesting article...based on facts.  I considered creating a separate thread for it just for reference purposes.

Yet another example of don't believe everything you read.
