looks like it was a great win against the bengals! i missed the game unfortunately, but did see the highlights & read the articles. my predicted score was probably the most ive been off in a LONG time! so credit to the steelers, and ill reiterate sumthin i said a couple weeks ago: looking more and more like the bengals just arent ready for prime time yet. theyve got sumthin to build on- but ya gotta win the games against the steelers and ravens.
too bad woodley left in first q, those hamstring injuries are terrible bc they linger for so long. what really upsets me about his injury is that i (and others) believe it was initially the result of one of his sack dance kicks. at this point- perhaps he shouldnt come back until the playoffs. and congrats to the steelers for making the playoffs!!
sadly- the situation remains: if the ravens win out- then the best steelers can do is 5th seed. if ravens lose one, then the one seed is there for the taking if the texans lose one (they should)- and IF we can beat SF- which to me is a 60/40 steelers proposition. i think the seeding is gonna make or break the pats; their only chance to make sb is as the one seed, whereas the other teams i believe can win on the road.
7 - 5 teams: there are 5 of them! and i think two of them are gonna win out, meaning sumone will likely be 11 - 5 and miss the playoffs this year, as i predicted weeks ago. thankfully- it looks like the steelers have escaped that grouping- looking like theyll finish 12 - 4. my most likely scenario: jets and bengals win out. steelers finish tied with balt and texans, pats win out. so it sets up sumthin like: 1. pats 2. texans 3. ravens 4. denver 5. steelers 6. bengals. in that configuration- the steelers would play at denver!!! could they be tebowed!??? IF the steelers are tebowed- i will officially relinquish them as my team until a new coaching regime comes in.
anyway- looks like great steelers win- FINALLY!! ill have to see the game on tape, but looks like solid win, and i am rightfully gonna take a lot of heat for my inaccurate prediction. ps- is it too much to ask for ANOTHER solid win now on thursday nite?
