    Yep. And I also believe they are capable of going out and looking like the worst team in the league on any given week.

    No, because that last series where the Steelers held a team out of the endzone after giving up scores the last few weeks spotlighted changes made in this defense. That's not players doing it. That's coaches doing it. It wasn't as though the scheme was beat and a player just made an outstanding play on the ball.

    Brady didn't score because of scheme on that drive. It's why he had to throw the ball away twice at least. it's also why he tried to throw it away and got a pick instead on one of the previous drives.

    Again, I'm only saying that if the team we saw today shows up for the rest of the season, we have a very good chance. Now, what do I think the chances of that happening are? Slim. And that, you can at least partially put on coaching. But today's game . . . gotta give it its due.
    Amen!

    Just imagine if the offense shows up too...

    So, beating the Taperiots is no big deal. Commonplace, really.

    Good to know.

    This was a win and I'll take all I can get, but this NE game doesn't bolster my confidence much. NE did as much to beat themselves as we did.

    If there’s anytime to do it, now is the time as the whole team is on the decline...lol.

    It’s great that they beat the Pats, just sucks that they dropped on to the Raiders, gave one way to the Chargers and gave one to the Broncos.

    They should be beating the Patriots...Steelers have way more talent than them. As they did last year...

    Those three games are the difference between the #4 seed (for the moment) and the #1 seed with 2 to play.

    Yep and they were all winnable. All of them. Even the Chiefs game was a winnable game...

    I think the Saints game is winnable and I think they win it as long as the Saints beat the Panthers Monday Night.

    Still pretty low

    patriots looked terrible

    And we lost to the lowly raiders, gave one away to chargers the week before that, and gave another to the lousy broncos

    Let that all sink in. This team is the very definition of underachieving.

    Yep. Then go back and remember both the Chiefs games and the even the Browns' game in which we gave up and tied them. We should be 13-1. A season of wasted opportunities.

    Much needed win but against a slightly above average team they are now. I'll take it and feels good beating them! Some good signs with Rogers, Samuels and Washington. We just got to make the playoffs and who knows ? Talent is there and we can compete with anyone when we are up for it!

    Re: What's Your Confidence Level in this Team for the Playoffs?

    Can't talk playoffs yet because we still may have to win out depending on how Baltimore does. If they beat the Chargers next week, we'll be in a bad spot with a loss vs New Orleans. I wish I could say I was optimistic about that game, but it's going to be TOUGH. Between NE and NO I thought today's game was the much more winnable one. To be quite honest I'm not all that impressed with the Chargers, and the Ravens could possibly beat them.

    The one advantage we have is that they're on a short week, but still, the Saints at home will be tough sledding any way you put it.

    Steelers likely treated this as their Super Bowl. How will they fare the rest of the way. Can't see them being competitive against New Orleans after such an emotional win especially in the Superdome

    The good thing is the Chargers are still playing for a 1 seed, so they got something to play for. The Saints pretty much have their 1 seed locked up with the Rams loss tonight, and a short week.

    Well hopefully the Chargers will do us a favor and, beat the ravens. If they don't it will be another must win for the Steelers VS Saints on the road.

    Re: What's Your Confidence Level in this Team for the Playoffs?

    Yeah, a day later I'm still all over the place. It was nice to see our defense not let up all game. They had only one breakdown and then one personnel issue where two CBs collided leaving a WR free. Their work in the fourth quarter forcing that turnover and stopping a driving offense really impressed me. I know, people are saying this isn't the same Patriots team. Sure. But that Patriots team is a ton better than the Raiders or Jags. So . . .

    And yet, I really don't want to get my hopes up.

    Wild card doesn't look good right now, we'd have to go 1-1, which we can, but Colts and Titans would also both have to go 1-1, and although they play each other the last game, I highly doubt either loses this weeks game, so one of them would be 2-0. So, we have to keep pace with the Ravens to win the division. Saturday's game between the Ravens and Chargers is huge, if the Ravens win we're in trouble. Please Santa, give me a Chargers win!

    Possible. But for some stupid reason (as I keep getting sucked in) I think the Steelers may have turned a corner against the Pats*. I'm hoping that was the monkey-off-the-back game we so needed.
