One of the saddest things about this season is Ben is very likely going to surpass 5,000yds Passing and already passed his personal best of 32TD passes in a season and is currently sitting at 33. Likely the best season of his career and we're most likely going to miss the playoffs.

I'm with you Walleye imo the Steelers played a better game today then they played last week and the Steelers are close to being a great team.

I'm starting to see the difference the new DB coach is making on the so so DBs on the team and imo a couple of bad pass inter. calls in the Saints game. when the Saints whined the flags came out. Steelers vs. Saints - Page 6 124247948

what if the Ravens lose next week and the Steelers beat the Bengals?

I'm seeing the Browns beating the Ravens next week.

The thing is if you told me 5 weeks ago they go 1-1 against Saints and cheats I'd figure we had a successful end of season. It wasn't this game...it was the Browns game, Oakland, Denver and Chargers. This game should have only mattered in the race for the #1 seed and been inconsequential in the division race or playoff berth. The last seasons of a HOF QB are being wasted by constant playoff failures and this year probably not making it

Browns could still beat rats next week but probably more likely we're drafting higher than the last 12 spots in the 2019 draft.

Happy Holidays and New Year to everyone here.

I agree.

And on another note:  I agreed with the fake punt - and everyone on this forum would be too, if it would've gone for one more yard.

JuJu was amazing - it sucks that his fumbled ended the game.  He's a terrific young talent.

I still disagree with that fake punt. If the idea was to play defense, and it obviously was since Tomlin didn't let them score to preserve timeouts, then you need to make Brees drive the length of the field. Yeah everyone would've been happy had Nix picked up the 1st Down but I still disagree with the call.

Agree on Juju, that is just awful. It was a bad break. Just ended up on top of the guy otherwise he probably would've been down. Bad luck. Hope he keeps his chin up.

If we had punted, the punt would have went into the end zone like always, and it would have been about a 25 yard difference from where the saints got the ball. Brees still would have driven in for a score (he probably would have made up the difference in yardage in just a few passes, and would have left us with less time).

Too many times, this team has built a lead and then took its foot off the pedal, allowing other teams to make a comeback. On the fake punt, tomlin was playing to win instead of playing to not lose. I'm fine with that. My complaint is tomlin putting ridley in during a critical drive with the season on the line. He's the 4th string running back for a reason.

My issue is that it wasn't 4th and short. If you are going to keep your foot on the pedal and go for it, at least keep the offense out there and call a better play. 4th and 2 or 4th and 3 and that fake punt would've worked, but 4th and 5 is a huge stretch.

Fair point. You're not wrong, but I'm still OK with the call.

I didn't mean that to sound as a farewell for the year Steelers vs. Saints - Page 6 2981382511 I just meant to say this year's about over and we'll still be doing it 2019 playoffs or not.

I didn't want to be the one who wrote that Steelers vs. Saints - Page 6 2981382511 but, yeah. The rats are due for a letdown, the Browns got them earlier, and every game for the Browns is one where they want to prove themself. I could see Browns winning next week. But, as you say, Steelers likely lose to the Bengals Steelers vs. Saints - Page 6 294855916

All that being said...Browns may lose just to make sure Steelers stay out.

Not that I think we will do much in the playoffs, but the Browns have a pretty high incentive to fight hard for a W on Sunday. If they beat the Ravens, the Browns would finish at 8-7-1. That would be their first winning season in a very long time. So we would need to demolish the Bengals in the process. I hate backing into the playoffs like that, but it would be sweet to have the Browns help us get there. :)

I absolutely believe the Browns could win against the Ravens. In fact, they should be favorites in this game.

I think the Browns have every chance to win, they've actually got a pretty damn decent defense. I think Gregg Williams could definitely draw up some stuff to deal with Lamar Jackson and force him into some mistakes.

I'm happy if we make the playoffs, every loss we've had this season has been pretty damn close or absolutely down to the wire. This team has shown it can hang with any team in the league and we've done that despite some absolutely horrible officiating going against us. If we get into the playoffs we're just as dangerous as any other team, and we've got a pretty healthy roster to boot.

I mean yeah I'd of preferred we'd of just locked things up on our own, but I still want to see my Steelers in the playoffs even if we need a little luck to get there. It's about time something breaks our way.

Copied this from the Tweets at Post Gazette:

Quote :
The Pittsburgh #Steelers head into the last week of the season needing help in order to make the playoffs. In the 9 previous occasions that PIT needed help in the season’s final week in order to make the postseason, they made the playoffs 4 times (1977, 1989, 1993, 2015).

We should just tell Baker that Hue Jackson just got hired by the Ravens. He'd lead them to victory for sure.
