The Steelers are still fighting for the playoffs and must win all their remaining games.
With only three weeks left in the season it's time to teams to step-up and secure a playoff spot or start looking forward to next season.
After a rough couple weeks I'm sitting at 132-76, I need to step it up.
Here's a quick look at this weeks games.
NY Giants at Atlanta - This is a great match-up of two teams with a real chance to make it to the Super Bowl. While Atlanta looks good for a first round bye, the Giants still have an outside shot. But the Giants play better as a wildcard so they don't really care.
The Giants are a little banged up but they just need to make it into the playoffs health. This franchise knows what matters and they have complete confidence in what they can do as a team. I expect a lot of passing from Eli with Bradshaw out. Look for Wilson work on screens so he can get into the open field.
The Falcons need to secure home field through...

Whether you were alive in the ’70′s or not, you damn well better know about the rivalry that ensued between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. So-called “America’s Team” full of glamour and filled with a prim and proper style up against the “Men of Steel” from the harsh, dirty environment of the rust belt. Twice they would meet in two of the greatest Super...
The Pittsburgh Steelers embarrassed themselves during a 34-24 Week 14 home loss to the San Diego Chargers last Sunday, and the fans even booed the team at different points in the game. The boos were most noticeable after receiver Mike Wallace dropped a pass during the second quarter when the team was only down 3-0. Even though Wallace finished with seven catches for 112 yards and...
Through the first 13 weeks of the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the NFL’s number one ranked defense and are number one against the pass and five against the run. You would think that the team with the league’s number one ranked defense would have one of the top records or at least be leading their own division. The Steelers however, sit at 7-6 and are fighting to get into...
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich is not on the injury report this week for the first time since he injured his ribs in the 13-10 loss the Baltimore Ravens back in Week 11.
