A Video I Put Together for fans of the Steelers!
This is a contest held by a local radio station and YES, I WON! It was the 2004 season, Roethlisberger's rookie year. The Steelers went 15-1, but lost in the AFC Championship game. It was still a great year.
Some Steeler fan at the game trying to talk trash to a Redskins fan, needless to say he made himself look like a fool

The Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC North last season with a 10-6 record but were eliminated in the playoffs by Jacksonville at home during wildcard weekend. The Steeler defense broke down during the final 5 games of last season by allowing an average of 29 points per game. Oddsmakers have set the projected season win total for the Steelers for the 2008 regular season at 9 wins.
When you handicap season win totals you must, I mean must look at the schedule.
The Steelers have the toughest schedule in the NFL this season. 14 of their 16 opponents had winning records in 2007. Like the rest of the teams in their division the Steelers face the NFC East but must travel to the weakest teams in Washington and Philadelphia. They host both Dallas and the NY Giants. As division winners last season they must face first place San Diego and New England while the other 3 teams in their division wont face them. Two Monday night games are scheduled meaning a short week to prepare when facing Jacksonville and Indianapolis. How is this for scheduling from November 9th to December 7th they got in succession Indy, San Diego, Cincinnati, New England and Dallas. The Steelers need to get a good start to the season because wins late will be harder to come by.
Big Ben Roethlisberger is coming off his first pro bowl season as he passed for 32 touchdowns last season. The Steelers locked up their starting quarterback by giving him at $102 million dollar contract for the next 8 years. The offensive line must do a better job of protecting him as Big Ben was sacked 47 times last season. They will be without Pro Bowl guard Alan Faneca who was lost through free agency. Running back Willie Parker had a good season rushing for over 1300 yards last season. He suffered a broken leg, which forced the talented runner to miss the last two games of the season. Parker showed no ill effect of the injury during mini camps. The Steelers added depth at the running back position by drafting Rashard Mendenhall in the first round. Hines Wards lead a talented receiving corps and a new addition will be 6-4 Limas Sweed who was drafted in the second round out of Texas. The Steelers added size in their receiving corps and will help them in critical third down plays as well as red zone throws. Heath Miller returns at tight end and his 6-5 height contributed to 7 touchdown receptions last season. The Steelers have talented playmakers on offense. 10 of 11 starters return for the Steelers potent offense from last season. The Steelers will put up plenty of points in 2008.
Pittsburgh returns 10 starters from the #1 total defense from last season. Safety Troy Polamalu was stricken with a knee injury in 2007 that forced the talented safety to miss games. Polamalu could return to his good form with a healthy 2008 and makes a huge impact for the Steelers. I felt Polamalu’s health was part of the cause for the Steelers defensive breakdown late last season. They run the 3-4 and have a talented down lineman who can stop the run and set up plays for their linebackers. The defense also does a good job of creating turnovers.
And now to my Selection:
The Pittsburgh Steelers are loaded with talent on the offensive side of the ball. With Mendenhall coming in the draft it sets up 4th quarter situations where the Steelers can run out the clock on the ground with two good backs and will set up play action in the most critical points of the game. I think for this reason the Steelers have a good shot at sweeping the Bengals and Browns again because neither possesses a good defense. The Steelers will go 5-1 in the division this season and we need to find 5 more wins to get to 10. With the NY Giants getting a bit weaker on defense they will go 3-1 against the NFC East this season. They have Houston at home in week 1 which is a winnable game. We just need 1 win against the Colts, Chargers, Patriots, Titans or Jaguars to get to 10. With a really tough schedule this Steeler team will get to 10 wins. This team has 13-3 or 14-2 talent but with this difficult schedule will go 10-6. Play Pittsburgh over 9 wins this season.
Play OVER 9 wins for the 2008 season.
Selection: Over 9 wins in 2008 Regular Season.

Michael Buechele of 1115Media, NFL Friday Football Pick, Steelers over Cowboys.Huge game for both teams. Steelers are keeping pace to lock up the number 2 spot. Ben Roethlisberger has been so-so to bad lately, but it looks like a healthy Willie Parker and Bryant McFadden will be in the line up. They have the best defense in the league with one of the hardest hitting defensemen in Troy Polamalu. Dallas just had some victories over some really bad teams, 49ers and Seahawks, so this is going to be one heck of a wake up call. The Cowboys pretty much need to win the rest of their games, and Atlanta to lose one, to make the playoffs. TO does not go to the dance this year.
