The Steelers ended up 12-4 in the regular season and won the Super Bowl in a season in which the 'experts' said they'd be lucky to go 9-7 and make the playoffs (these same experts said the defense was aging and would be a weak point ... go figure). This year, with a probable better team, they face a weaker set of opponents.
I am Irish Road ... I don't claim to be an expert. Although I did pick better than most of them against the spread last year. But as I sit here drinking my craft beer I am predicting another 12-4 season. One filled with a Stairway to Seven, as we may come to call it in Steel Town after the Men of Steel hoist a record seventh Vince Lombardi Trophy.
