At the start of football season, I go into this thing trying to have my eyes wide open.  Trying to be realistic.  Trying to recognize the Stillers for what they are and for what they potentially can be (within reason).  

Then, it happens.

The glimmer of hope.

Before kickoff, I honestly believed that the Steelers were what we saw last year:  A pretty good team that would make it to the playoffs.  At best, we were a contender for the division and possible host for a R1 playoff game.  At best, we win one playoff game, then start talking about next year.  At best, we give the Pansies a fit in round 2, setting them up for another late-season failure.

Then it happened.  Again.

Brady goes down.

The Jags lose to the Titans.

The Browns get smoked.

The Chargers lose to the Panthers???  (Who were w/o Steve Smith, mind you)

The Colts lose to the Bears.

The Chargers lose SCHWAN MERRIWIDOW.

And all of the sudden, I'm thinking:

Why NOT us???

Oh, Bellychimp will parlay this into some great motivational technique for a while.  No one respects you, they think Beardy is the team, they think you can't play, it was a dirty hit, yadayadayada.  But in the end, they are mediocre w/o Brady.  We have just as good a chance as anyone to make some noise this season, and possibly start putting rings on the other hand.

I wish I didn't think that way, but I just can't help it.

And to make matters even worse for Cleveland's already pathetic and sad secondary, Sean Jones is out for several weeks with arthroscopic surgery.  

Roethlisberger has to be seeing Cleveland DB's in his dreams.  Five wide.

With Miller lead blocking for Starks, how can it fail?

Five wide -- Ward, Miller, Holmes, Washington, and Spaeth -- with two tackle-eligible receivers -- Miller and Colon.

Just chuck it out there.

Give Calhoun the Ball!

I am with ya Preach. Hard to not see the Steelers representing the AFC...But they still have that stretch in November/first of December, that will really define who they are. The Steelers just need to take it one game at a time and give 110%.

That's the way I'm going about it and the way I go about it every year.  One game at a time.  We looked good in game one against a so/so Texan team and injuries around the league are going in our favor, but it's going to take more than one regular season ball game to convince me that we can take our conference.

Its very easy to come back to earth once you realize the steelers record on the road the last 2 seasons is 6-10.  they really havent been playing their best ball away from the comfy confines of Heinz Field in recent years.

just sayin.

hopefully, Tomlin and Co. realize up  3 games on the AFCN paper champs will be motivation enough for a win on the road.

Vinman,
Don't forget that the Steelers need to win the battle in the trenches and stick to the gameplan.  Oh.........and out execute the opponent.

Thanks ICFan, I knew I could count on you to back me up on the sports cliches.
