Well, it's that time again, it's time to make some way too early predictions about where the Steelers will end up record wise. The 17 game season is now hear and it will be interesting to see how teams respond. 17 games is good news for the fans, but it's not as good news for the players who know have to face another game.
I predict that the Steelers will finish the season above .500, I think it will be a hard fought .500 though. The Steelers have one of the hardest schedules in the NFL and now the Steelers will have to face the Seattle Seahawks in the final game of the season. At least that game is in Pittsburgh.
My early prediction for a specific record will be 11-6. I still think the Steelers will win a majority of their season once again. A lot of people probably doubt that we will get a worse record than that. However, I think once again the Steelers will come out hot and surprise some people.
Once again, the Steelers will go on a little bit of a losing streak, but I think they will be able to pick themselves back up at the right time and stay competitive in this tough division. All of this really depends on how well Ben Roethlisberger plays and if we have a running game of some sorts.
