Pittsburgh Steelers

FO Projection: 13-3, SOS 27th

Be wary of any team whose success weighs heavily on the shoulders of a running back.

With Le'Veon Bell performing at top levels last season, the Steelers won eight games in a row from Week 11 to a division round playoff win over the Chiefs. (Bell sat out a meaningless Week 17 game, as did many of Pittsburgh's starters.) Bell averaged over 180 yards from scrimmage during that time and was dominant in the playoffs -- until a groin injury sidelined him early in the AFC championship game against the Patriots, a game which the Steelers ended up losing by 19 points.

Bell has already had offseason surgery with no timetable set for his return, and he has been given the franchise tag, which could make him even more cautious next season if he doesn't get a long-term deal. But that doesn't just fall on Bell's shoulders, because I believe that Pittsburgh is just too fragile in general. If one of their big three players goes down -- Bell, Ben Roethlisberger or Antonio Brown -- the rest of the house of cards goes with them. Roethlisberger has to be an even bigger concern, as the 35-year-old is not a stranger to getting hurt and impending retirement has been a topic of discussion all offseason for him.

On defense, Pittsburgh is either old, inexperienced or average. Who is the star on that side of the ball that carries the Steelers? Ryan Shazier? James Harrison? T.J. Watt? No Steelers player had more than five sacks or more than three interceptions, and they'll also have to replace Lawrence Timmons, a leader on that side of the ball for the past 10 seasons. Can Pittsburgh win 13 games? Yes. But it looks more like a 10-win team that may have lost ground to the Ravens.......http://www.msn.com/e...=BBnba9I#page=3

“We definitely feel like we are equipped to go out and finish these last four games off,” quarterback Joe Flacco said. “This is the biggest one because it’s now, because it’s Pittsburgh. This will do a lot for us.”

Just hope that the coach and Flacco can really bring back a SB to the city of Charm in Baltimore.
