Adam Schein of CBS Sports has never really been fond of the Steelers, so it wasn't surprising to hear him say that he can't find six wins for the Steelers on their schedule in 2021.
Schein also said that he thinks the Steelers will lose every game from Week 11-18, losing to the Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Los Angeles, at Bengals, Ravens at home, at Vikings on Thursday Night Football, Titans at home, at Chiefs, Browns on Monday Night Football at home and at Ravens.
"Ben Roethlisberger was cooked at the end of last year, why do I think he's going to be ready to rock and roll this year?" Schein said. "The line still stinks. Defense is not what it was. Bud Dupree's not walking through that door. I'm telling ya, second-half schedule, murders row. And this team wasn't any good last year. Now, Najee Harris is going to help the offense without question, but can't block for himself, right? Can't block for himself. Ben Roethlisberger's not getting any younger. I mean, Cleveland and Baltimore, whatever order, they're the class of the division. They are vastly superior football teams. Don't be surprised if Cincinnati ends up winning more games than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh is going to be a hot mess."
If Schein's prediction does come true that the Steelers win just six or fewer games in 2021, it would be the Steelers first losing season since 2003.
