Are the Steelers for real?

I didn't get to see the Steelers put a beatdown on the Eagles yesterday, because I was busy watching the painful Redskins-Lions game.  I must say that beating two previously unbeaten teams back to back is fairly impressive.  Have the Steelers' last two victories been as dominant as the final scores indicated, or did NE and Philly just play poorly?

Well, the Pats and Eagles were both hurt when they played the Steelers, the Eagles had Westbrook severely limited and the Pats played without Dillon. I think the Pats would beat the Steelers if both teams were totally healthy but that's the way football goes. The Eagles on the other hand played a poor game plan against the Steelers. I think they are more talented but they may lose against a better coached team.

In a word, yes. It's true that both the Eagles and the Pats had injuries, but if you watched the games, the Steelers were just more physical. They hit both teams in the mouth.

With that said, I'm still not sold on Rothleswhatever. Only time will tell.

I do think the Steelers were for real, and they are a good team, nonetheless they will lose to a healthy pats team. Losing your all-pro running back, corner, and three key receivers is not going to win you a game no matter how deep you are.

I agree.

Where does that leave us, picking the NFC?

Can they finish out the season Undefeated or do you think they are going to choke?
Anyone think they will join the '72 Dolphins and go all the way?
