The Steelers lost again today. Not only did they lose, but they were shut-out 27-0 by the division leading Ravens. So the Steelers are now all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. They are 5 games behind the division leaders with five games to play and their best possible finish is 9-7. Considering an 11-5 AFC team missed the wildcard last year, it is almost guaranteed the Steelers will be done at the conclusion of the regular season. The team is very similar to last year's squad, but the biggest difference seems to be the number of turnovers the Steelers are giving up. They've already had 3 or 4 more interceptions this year than they did all last year.

Oh, well...normally I'd be depressed about that. But given that they won the Superbowl last season, they've earned a 5 year exemption from criticism in my books.

Now I'll just root for good football...and against the Colts, Bengals, Ravens, Broncos, Cowboys, Redskins and Falcons...
