OK maybe not.
New England has been exposed as being weaker than anticipated. The Steelers O-Line has some serious issues. Even if Big Ben plays in the last game of the season for the Steelers, their O-Line is so bad that an aggressive rush would force the Coaching staff to play it safe and try to win it with the backup.
Here's my revised prediction after seeing three weeks of play:
New Orleans L High Octane Offense and improving Defense too much for a young secondary. Is Gibril benched yet?
@NYJ L It is hard for a rookie to go into a hostile environment and face an aggressive defense.
@New England L Moss and company too much for the Dolphins, but the young secondary shows signs of improvement.
Tampa Bay W Freeman will be starting by now.
@Carolina (Thursday) W They have serious issues. Matt Moore by now? Josh McCown?
@Buffalo W Their Injuries and O-line inexperience will be enough to keep them down this year.
New England W If Buffalo could take them to the brink of defeat and the Phins could come within a Ginn drop of victory over the Colts, the Phins CAN DO THIS. Patrick Cobbs, just take a touchback if we have the lead at the end.
@Jacksonville W They are not good
@Tennesee W They have issues
Houston W Gotta contain Andre Johnson and we're good to go. Sean Smith covers him all over the field.
Pittsburgh W If they have clinched by now, their O-Line can scare their coach into saving Big Ben and using his backup.
Finishing 10-6 after an 0-3 start. We will need 8 wins in a row. It is doable. Enough to make the playoffs? What do you think?
