Steelers can clinch playoff spot this weekend
Tuesday, December 02, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers can clinch a playoff spot this week. To do so, they must beat the Cowboys at Heinz Field and the Dolphins and Patriots both have to lose.

That's the simple version because in the second, Miami can tie but then the Steelers need the Patriots and the Jets to both lose.

Seattle beating New England?  Yeah, that's not happening.

Miami is at Buffalo.

Buffalo really pulled a Thelma & Louise this season, but who knows, they could beat Miami. 

But Seattle?  I think we could put together a team of MGSers and beat those tepid fucks.  As noted in another thread, New England has an "arduous" schedule, wherein the word "arduous" actually means "this shit's about as hard as being a drunk in a pissing contest."

Dallas isn't a must-win, but it'd sure as shit help.

Beat the Cowboys in the late afternoon game, then the Skins will see that they can pull even with Dallas, with a win at Baltimore. I'm kinda doubting they can beat the Ravens, but a Dallas loss would have to give them a little more jump, no?

If that happened to shake down, I think we could clinch the division with a win against the Ravens.

Beat Baltimore and one of the other three and that clinches the division.

We're two ahead of the Jets for the second seed, due to tie breakers.  They'd need to win out to get the second seed if we take 2/4.

I can't remember another season where the Steelers have an outside shot at the #1 seed, the inside track of the #2 seed or could end up watching the whole thing at home.  It is maddening but if you make the #2 seed with this schedule (or just make the playoffs for that matter) they could be very dangerous in the post season.  No other team will be that battle tested...
