The Pittsburgh Steelers fan base can be a fickle bunch. Even when their team was 4-0, there was skepticism among the black and gold following. Many cited the Steelers not playing any teams with a winning record, some talked about the secondary while others just said the team hasn’t really dominated an opponent yet.

Well, after the 38-7 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6, the fan base is starting to believe in the Steelers.
