What is the mindset of the Steelers with 3 regular season games to go?

What exactly is the mindset of the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers, now with just 3 games left on the schedule and the playoffs getting closer by the day? Are they truly a confident team like we always hear them talk about, or is there some doubt in the locker room with their identity and what they are capable of?

Steelers Road to the Playoffs Tougher Than You Think

That ‘must-win’ game the Pittsburgh Steelers already knew they had in Dallas just got bigger if there is such a possibility.

Steelers DB Victorian, Van **** ready for more

As the veteran member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' otherwise-youthful cornerbacks, Ike Taylor enjoys being among the first- and second-year players at his position meetings.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#11)

Last week: 7 (-4) Record: 9-4 Net points per drive: 0.11 (13th) DVOA: -0.5% (15th) Weighted DVOA: 2.1% (13th) If they can win week 16 against the Bengals, they should still be in the playoffs regardless, even after a loss to the Chargers at home. The Bengals really missed a chance at home for Dallas this week. I think they get that one and while they’re at it, I think they win...
