Year after year everyone doubts the Steelers because of the lack of offense, yet we still are the most dominant defensive team in the league. Although the Titans and Jets are having good years, can they really get it done come playoff time.? As far as I see it the Steelers are the best all around Team in the AFC and should make some noise this year in the playoffs.

Steelers #1 in the AFC?

I know statistically we're number 1 on defense, however, we're too high on sacks and other negative aspects. The stupid Ravens are prime example of what having a good defense and mediocre offense will get you. I like it when Ben leads the troops down to score in the final seconds to win games, however, I hate that we consistently put ourselves into those situations. Soner or later, we're NOT gonna be able to get lucky as we have in the past few games. Understandably this year's Steelers have the toughest NFL schedule since the 1976 NY football Giants and we've done exceptionally well. I'm just saying that my 36 years of watching football leads me to believe that we can't keep our 'luck' going like we have in the previous few games. I wouldn't mind a loss or luck running out during the season, but to win every game and have ONE bad game in the playoffs will break my heart...

The solution? I dunno. I can't really entirely blame the offensive line or Ben. What say everyone else?

Just a quick comment about Roethlisberger - he's been playing hurt most of the year.  At first the injuries were minor, but during weeks 8-10, not so much.  Setting aside those three games, he's accomplished a QB rating of about 94.4, including 12 touchdowns to go with only 4 interceptions.  There should not be a question as to his consistancy.

Big Ben Roethlisberger is good but too inconsistent. He doesnt make good enough desicions with the ball causing him to throw it away a lot. Twelve interceptions on only Thirteen touchdown is not what i like to see.  His yards are down this year too. He is lucky the Steelers defence is good.  Also Willie Parker is injury prone, this guy always is having something wrong with him, and not putting up the numbers he could be.  SO they should probably just stick with Mr. Mewelde Moore.  He is just as good as Willie minus the injuries and wasted time. The Steelers have weapons, but dont convert enough to be able to go far in the playoffs.

However the Titans have been very consistant on all aspects of the game.  There quarterback Kerry Collins in a veteran and knows what to do with the ball.  Unlike big Ben this guy has over double the touchdowns than interceptions. With just about the same number of passing yards as Ben he doesn't even need to pass much. His dinamic running backs are a definate one-two punch that is super hard to stop. LenDale White is the power back running for many touchdowns and banging up defences and making them tired. That makes life so much easier for Chris Johnson this guy run a 4.2 forty and will run by defences.  Once they are tired from a power back Chris will find the holes and shot the gaps. Making it near impossible to stop these two. (Only the Jets and Bears have showed any hope). These Titans are better than the Steelers hands down.

Cowboys Over Steelers this sunday to show my point.

I still like the Steelers, but am just making my oppinon straight. Thank you and comment back.
