I mentioned it on Sunday during the game, but I wouldn't call it an official bet.

It's a bit easier with the bye week coming up, but I think the Pens would have won first regardless.

Even though it's a bye week I fully expect Tomlin to figure out way to rack up another loss.

Last night on his weekly radio show Ryan Clark apparently guaranteed the Steelers will make the playoffs.

In other news, Ryan Clark is an annoying loudmouth incapable of knowing when to shut the hell up and is delusional.

Someone needs a nice tall glass of STFU.

I get that they aren't going to publicly admit defeat, but don't insult our intelligence.

At least when Bylsma says it we can believe that the Pens have some game to get to.

Not surprisingly, the Steelers fall into the "Bad Offense/Bad Defense" area of the chart.

Would anyone have guessed the Pirates would win three playoff games before the Steelers win a game? It could turn out the Bucs get more playoffs wins than Steelers total wins too.

Steelers depth chart changes: Mike Adams has been demoted to 3rd string for both tackle positions. Kelvin Beachum is listed as the starter at LT, backed up by Levi Brown. Cameron Heyward will now be starting at DE over Ziggy Hood.

Tomlin also described Levi Brown as a “critical acquisition", showing that he has no idea what the word "critical" means.

I'm actually in favor of both moves. They can have positive future implications, unlike the crap move of trading for Levi Brown (made all the more curious by having Beachum start over him). You get to see if Beachum has the talent to be a starting tackle in the NFL or if his only value is as a decent offensive lineman who can play every damn position, including TE. The other move signals the end (thank God) of the Ziggy Hood era. He sucks. Heyward hasn't been great, but he's been better than Ziggy. Time to see what he does with increased playing time.

Fair enough, my point is that this team as a whole is terrible. I think it is going to take a lot more change to significantly improve this team.

Absolutely. Which is why it is ridiculous to trade any draft pick for an overpaid talentless bust like Levi Brown.

I assume he figured himself being benched would facilitate the playoff run.

He didn't guarantee anything. He was asked if it was possible to make the playoffs. He answered saying it was do-able and that he feels the team has a chance to do it based on the remaining schedule. Roethlisberger also agreed with the sentiments in his weekly radio show.

It's fact, and the fact is we're not out of it. The fact is of the three teams in our division, we play two of them twice and we have another one at home, which I feel like are five winnable games. You win those games, you put yourself in better position as opposed to those teams."

Yea...no guarantee.
