Love that the bye week splits the season in half. That I believe can be advantageous for the Steelers. The rats followed by the cheats in weeks 14 and 15 is going to be a rough ride. Other than that... Here We Go!

Go Steelers!

Second half of that schedule is a bitch. Nice that 5 of the last 7 @ home.


Ben is soooooooo much better at home than he is on the road. This is a very good thing. And one of the away games is against a Colts team we've been steamrolling lately.

First half of the schedule is cake, we could go at least 9-0 with a strong effort.


You know better than that by now.

hard to say anything definitive at this point, but it would seem we at least have the opportunity to get off to one of our best starts ever

it's hard for me to find a definite loss before the bye, though i think we drop one to Balti or Cinci, possibly KC

Indianapolis is probably due for a win against us, pending Andrew Luck's health at that point in the season, and we'll be lucky to come out of the Green Bay/Cinci/Balti/New England stretch at 2-2 (though, hey, only road game is at Paul Brown, where we own the Bungles), but last two games should save us

10-6 is our floor, imo

i'm too averse to looking like dyed in the wool fanboy to state what i think our ceiling might be

Maybe it's just me, but that schedule looks a little easier than the Steelers usual draw. Am I wrong?

Sample size. Not really true if you look over the course of his career.

If the defense improves and they have Bryant back.

Otherwise, I'd argue 10-6 is our ceiling...and I usually seem to predict 1-2 more wins than they end-up with. If they start slow, like they often do, they will be in big trouble.

This is the best looking schedule I've seen in years.

they always look easy till they begin playing. somehow the easy games turn to struggles. my favorite parts are the mid season bye and season bookended by browns games. we can ease into season if u will and get a late season breather for playoff prep..
