I can almost feel #7, can't you? Things are starting to take place in Steeler land that are gonna get us back to the TOP.
My doom and gloom lasted almost two days after last weeks dismal loss to the Texans. So glad things are looking much brighter for OUR Pittsburgh Steelers, heading into the 5th week of the season. With a record of 2-2, I will admit that last Sunday night, I had one foot off the bandwagon myself. It feels great to be back on track, with a drink in one hand and a Terrible Towel in the other!
Why am I feeling so good about our Steelers chances this year? No, its not just the drink! I will list some of the reasons I am optimistic about our chances in the upcoming games and the playoffs.
1. Pass coverage: What most of us thought was our weakness last year, has turned into the strength of our defense. If the NFL truly has become a passing league, it is nice to have one of the top rated D's against the pass!
2. Receivers/QB: With the pass happy league our Steelers exist in these days, it great knowing we have the most talented collection of wide receivers in the league. And Big Ben, surely nothing has to be said about him. Last week just proved even more to me that he is the toughest son of gun in the league today!
3. O-line: MAX STARKS, glad to have you back big guy! We in Steeler Nation missed ya and I am sure Ben did too. And not only because you and he are great friends. I expect our O-line play to improve tremendously, which by all that is sacred in Steeler land surely will improve life for Big Ben.
I suggest everyone start planning their respective SB parties right now. I know it may not look like it at the present, but our Pittsburgh Steelers will be the best team in the league by the end of the year!
