I hear ya swiss, but I hope it counts as half a win? Like the Ravens and Bengals end the season with 9 wins and 7 losses and we end up with 9 wins too but that tie gives us 9.5 wins and we win the division!

Tie functions either as a win or as a loss....we just won't know 'til later.


Which just adds to current Steelers Nation football bizarro world all things considered starting last year...

Shazier odd fluke career ending injury
The Martavis Bryant saga
JJ scores/no he doesn't. We lose to our last 14 years or so nemesis costing us the #1 seed.
The Harrison saga, legendary Steeler released from the team late in the season.
One and done vs JAX at home even though we score 42
The Leveon Bell soap opera
The debacle in Cleveland
More Leveon Bell soap opera
A tie in the standings and so we have to wait to find out what it really means.

This team is a football soap opera right now.

Half expecting us to be a trainwreck the first third of the season, become just competent the rest of the way out to earn a wild card spot, win the wild card round, then get bounced in the divisional round again...


Only half? What you describe has become the “standard”.

We broke the mold a bit by going 13-3. Still didn’t matter.

Did maintain the standard of not seizing the top spot even though it was there for the taking.

Right! That's exactly what I'm saying, Scunge. Hopefully, it's that scenario and not one where Steelers go 9-6-1 and Ravens or Bungs win 10. One scenario, the tie equates to a win, the other to a loss.

The “good news” either way being we don’t have to keep track of anynof the tiebreakers.

Now the face of the franchise is threatening reporters on twitter.

We already know these guys aren't rocket scientists... oh wait. Well, we know 99.9% aren't rocket scientists. AB is no exception and has proven to be dumb before. Shrugs/

Can we at least get through September before prognostications? I bet last year everyone said the same shit.

Let's face it, at this point, being a Steelers fan is rooting for laundry, as Jerry Seinfeld would say.

Besides Connor and Villanueva and a couple of others, who on this team is relatable.

Tomlin can't coach or strategize.

I admit I've been spoiled by the Penguins who are much better entertainment, especially come playoff time.
