    Now we just need that bye week to rest this battered team some. Still work to be done.

    I believe you are correct...

    Despite the loss, the Steelers still clinched a playoff spot, according to the NFL, based on strength of victory.

    Steelers clinch despite loss

    By Bob Labriola - Steelers Digest


    Shortly after the loss, the Steelers received notification from the NFL that they had clinched a playoff spot. The exact scenario of how they clinched was not explained beyond the fact it included the Steelers’ strength of victory.

    Even with the loss, the Steelers stayed on a track to win the AFC North and clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs. If the Steelers defeat 2-12 Carolina on Dec. 23 at Heinz Field and then win in Cleveland on Jan. 2 against a Browns team that’s now 5-9, they would win the division over the Ravens based on a better division record (5-1 vs. 4-2). Then, because the there are no teams in either the AFC South or the AFC West with fewer than five losses already, the Steelers would finish as the No. 2 seed in the conference and get a first-round bye.

    Then maybe during the week off Arians will be kidnapped by a ruthless Mexican drug cartel and later found in parts suck on cactus spines across the length of the border.

    Just a thought...

    The last project I did in Mexico City, the client gave me my choice of attending anti-kidnap driver training or have two body guards assigned. I chose the body guards.

    They said they would kidnap you and take you to the bank to see how much was in your accounts and then take you to a bank every day to take the max allowed with your ATM card until the accounts were depleted and then kill you.

    I wonder how much he has in his accounts?

    Hey, to win the whole thing, all you need is a ticket to the dance.

    We should win our next two, get the bye, get healthy, and then see what happens. I like our chances as much as anyone's once we're in.

    Why? When the Patriots, Chargers, Colts or hell even the Jets and Ravens can kill our Pass Defense and take leads away from us with simplicity, will you all still be crying about the Offense?

    the Offense is what it is... it's more talented than it's production or in other words - mediocre/average but it's good enough to win. The Steelers have never had great productive offense and have won 6 superbowls.

    Everyone really needs to start getting concerned about this Defense that can't hold leads, stop the pass and can make mark Sanchez an accurate QB. A Defense that isn't able to get pressure on the QB and can't cover.

    Defense wins championships. Defense is supposed to be the strength and personality of this team. We won't and can't win shootouts most games. I'm not even concerned about our Offense. It's good enough to win a SB just like it was in 2005, 2008, 1974, 1975 etc... I don't know if the Defense is good enough.

    but I would still support arians being kidnapped by a ruthless mexican drug cartel though

    Hell Yeah!

    What's most important is getting to the Playoffs. Once you are there, you have fate waiting to help dictate.
