    Default What's Everyone's Thoughts and Predictions on the Season?

    With less than 24 hours until kick off, what's everyone's feelings about the upcoming season? Predictions?

    This will be the first time in years that I'm predicting less than 11 wins. I'm thinking 10-6.

    My thoughts as well. I guess being a Steeler fan has me spoiled,anything less than a playoff berth is a disappointment.

    I think this 1st game is big if we win this one we go 12-4. If we lose it we are at 10-6.
    I think dixon will surprise a alot of folks in his good play. I also think we will be running the ball incredibly well as long as Rashard stays healthy and we won't need dixon to do too much. We catch a break cause jenkins is out this week allowing us to double roddy white everywhere.
    I also think Timmons ankles are healed and he will have a much larger impact as far as quickness to the ball.
    Aaron and TP please stay healthy.

    again if we lose today I see it this way:

    loses -
    falcons
    ravens both games,
    titans (mobile QB's kill steelers cause they lack contain on the rush)
    saints (again quick mobile QB with lots of weapons)
    jets (tough running game and they'll play good D)

    but if we win today
    losses:
    ravens both games
    jets
    saints
    and we go 12-4.

    You hand an awful lot on one game but it is a big one. This is a quality opponent and if Dixon is up to the task and everything else goes well ... a win and confidence for the young guy could be really big and yeah all bets are off. I don't even know what to expect from the Steelers after last year. I guess that is why I am anticipating this game so much. I just don't have a vibe about this one. I really don't. We will soon see.

    No predictions from me... Too many variables come into play, and since I haven't seen a full 60 minutes from the starters on the field, I still do not know what to fully expect from them.

    ... But barring major injury, I expect our division to be a barnburner between the three contenders.

    I don't know why but I don't have great expectations for this team. I believe that some of the players we hold in high regard will not perform as we have seen in the past due to age and/or injury.

    Missing Ben for 4 games is going to leave them in a huge hole; I'm believing 1-3 is where they start, 2-2 would be a pretty deep hole.

    The defense will have to prove to me they can finish a game, something they were unable to do last year.

    There were some coaching changes, but I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe it will be any different than last year. On a positive note, Kugler realized relatively quickly that Pouncey needs to play.

    What they will need to get to 10-6 once Ben is back:

    w/o Ben ---- w/Ben

    0-4 --------- 10-2 (83%)
    1-3 ---------- 9-3 (75%)
    2-2 ---------- 8-4 (67%)
    3-1 ---------- 7-5
    4-0 ---------- 6-6

    Even at 2-2 they would have to win 67% of their games to get to 10-6; it's a steep hill and they haven't even snapped the ball yet.

    I can't really say, sometimes I think it will be this or that depending upon quarterback situation. I see us being as low as 7-9 and possibly 10-6 and a psosible wild card. I think our division has become too good for us to overcome the speed bumps we are approaching with the second and third string QB's, Flozell being a question mark and then Ben coming in with possible rust.

    The only thing I know for sure about this division is that Clevo will come in last. Other than I honestly think everyone could be really good or kinda bad and any combination. I think people forget that their are questions about all 3 teams.

    There is a game day room where you will find the game day thread. I think it is linked to the home page too. A little trick I leaned is to go to the forum then click on the "new posts" thread and you will see everything that is active.

    Papillon, I actually feel sort of the same way. In the past few years I've thought Super Bowl. For whatever reason (aging players, coaching, injuries, weaknesses) I'm just not feeling it this year. That's not to say this team isn't capable of it, though.

    Here's the direct link to the GDT, which is located in the "Game Day Lounge"... It's one of the sub-forums in the Steelers Tavern.

    Aaron and TP please stay healthy.

    again if we lose today I see it this way:

    loses -
    falcons
    ravens both games,
    titans (mobile QB's kill steelers cause they lack contain on the rush)
    saints (again quick mobile QB with lots of weapons)
    jets (tough running game and they'll play good D)

    but if we win today
    losses:
    ravens both games
    jets
    saints
    and we go 12-4.



    Don't see how a win or loss against the Falcons converts to a win or loss against the Titans.

    After watching the Jets against the Ravens tonight I give a 50/50 chance there, also against the Saints and Pats. Be hard to split with the Ravens unless the players put it all on the line come game 4.

    After the dust settles a 10-6 season would have to be consider a very productive season, all things considered (meaning we have to hopefully go 8-4 with Ben).

    If Dixon takes us to anything more than 2-2, Santa came early for Steeler Nation.
