Week 12 AFC Power Rankings by LifeLongSteel

It’s the time of year to give thanks, and we have a lot to be thankful for as the season heads into the stretch run. From where I sit, the Steelers are not a great team, but I also don’t see a single great team in the NFL. Bovada has moved the Steelers super bowl odds down to 10/1, which is only behind the Pats, Cards, Panthers and Packers.

In the spirit of giving thanks, let’s rank em’:

Week 11 AFC Power Rankings by LifeLongSteel

It took a while, but the primary flaws of the former #2 and #3 contenders finally made their now seemingly obvious appearances this past week. Walking Dead Manning showed up on Sunday. Primetime Dalton showed up Monday night.

The Fifth Quarter: A Pale Grey Rider

The 1983 Pittsburgh Steelers season got off to a great start on the scoreboard-- despite the uncertainty about Terry Bradshaw's elbow surgery and reinjury during training camp and even with pedestrian Cliff Stoudt behind center, the team got off to a 9-2 start. However, with the loss of top target John Stallworth and the decline of Franco Harris, playing in his final Pittsburgh campaign, the Steelers dropped three ugly games in a row, dropping their record to 9-5 and putting them in danger of losing out in the division and perhaps even missing out on a playoff spot.

I HATE the Bye Week

True story. Possessing a fantasy roster with Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick and Colin Kaepernick at QB, I spent a couple dollars, added Landry Jones to my roster and threw him into the fray this week. Then, I cheered loudly as #7 entered the contest in place of the injured backup. What a performance by Big Ben in affording the Steelers only their second semi-relaxing win of the ’15 campaign.

Body Bags, Stretchers, & CPR

The Steelers invented and survived a new NFL classic: the knockout shootout, with a 38-35 win over their doppelgangers, the Oakland Raiders.

This win was in the bag when: Antonio Brown caught a slant from Landry Jones and turned it into a 57 yard gain, deep into Raiders territory in the final minute of play.

The good news is: The Steelers now are in the top wild card position, with a tiebreaker win over the Raiders... a team that just might be in contention for the other wild card slot.

Ordinarily, I’m penning this humble column following the conclusion of all NFL football for the weekend. Not so this week. Unable to contain my angst following the heart-wrenching loss to the Cinci Bungles, this essay comes to you in the 2nd half of Sunday’s 4:25 starts. When the proprietor chooses to release it to the SteelerFury masses, is, as always, his call.

There’s a few items of note about Sunday’s game and about the 2015 edition of the Pittsburgh Steelers generally:
