Again, Bah, Humbug!

Yeah, yeah, we know. This is the wrong kind of momentum to have approaching the playoffs. The Steelers can't take any opponent for granted, especially going on the road. Blah, blah. That sixth seed we mentioned as a possibility last week? It's a bigger possibility this week.

The loss to Jacksonville was not at all entirely unexpected. From their inception as an NFL franchise, the Jags were built to beat the Steelers. Jacksonville has always been a tough matchup, and yesterday was no exception as the Jags out-Steelered the Steelers.

Well, Thursday evening's tussle with the 3-11 St. Louis Rams is fast-approaching. This one at least looks like a good matchup, even if it is on the road. Right? Right?! Uh, yeah, except that's what everyone said about the earlier matchups (losses) vs. the Cardinals and Jets.

Hey, we could be 7-7 right now like we were last year going into Week 16...

Time for a win. The Steelers now have two must win games. Take care of business...jagoffs.
