As OTA's and minicamps progress while training camp begin to roll over the horizon, America's favorite sport nears its regular season. While nobody knows how well teams will do in a season with the randomness of injuries and several other factors, it's always interesting to look ahead at the schedule and prognosticate. Unlike most people, I'm not going to give just a win or loss for each game, rather I'm going to predict how many times the Steelers would win if they played a team 10 times. For instance if the Steelers were playing a very crappy team, I would say 9/10 or 10/10. At the end i will add up the wins and divide by 10, giving us how many wins they will have this season.
Week 1 Titans at Steelers
A great season opener with two teams that have plenty of history as well as new found bad blood. The Titans are coming off a very disappointing post-season last year after earning the best regular season record last year. While the Titans should still be a good team, they are losing quite possibly the most dominating DT in the game, Albert Haynesworth. Unfortunately when the Titans "stomped" the Steelers last season, Haynesworth didn't play either, so no real gain there. The big question will be Kerry Collins, and I think his arm will just about fall off. I'll give the Steelers 6/10.
