The new Steelers headband finishes the regular season 12-4, AFC North camps and a second seed going into playoffs.
The OL looked strong all game, but against the Browns (on nine days rest at that) isn’t saying much. Troy, despite the continued nagging injuries, is ready. Roethlisberger and Wallace have found their rhythm. Even if Ward has lost a step, still finds himself open on enough and still blocks with force. Miller looked great after limited time against Carolina in Week 16.
Didn’t yell “FIRE BRUCE ARIANS” once all game. Can’t think of the last time that’s happened.
And thus begins the season of being nervous all the time.
