“The Steelers scored an enormous win in Saturday’s win over Cincinnati. This crew had lots of offensive points – together with the work ethic of George Pickens and fellow huge receiver Diontae Johnson – so scoring 34 factors in a must-win scenario isn’t one thing to be minimized,” Chadiha wrote of the Steelers. “A greater train can be to ask whether or not that win is a sign that Pittsburgh has turned issues round. That is nonetheless the identical crew that was eradicated by Indianapolis every week earlier and in addition misplaced to dangerous groups like Arizona and New England throughout a latest three-game dropping streak.
“One large sport from Pickens and Mason Rudolph does not change that. It additionally does not assist that Pittsburgh has to face an bettering Seattle crew and the Baltimore Ravens to shut out the season. The Steelers may win a kind of video games. They actually will not each win.”
There is not any denying how large the win over the Bengals was. The Steelers’ backs have been in opposition to the wall they usually have been on their third beginning quarterback of the season in Rudolph. What a response that was.
The Steelers got here out firing and shot down the sector, resulting in some large performs that led to touchdowns from Rudolph to George Pickens.
It was a much-needed efficiency, and a really robust efficiency by the Steelers on offense. However Chadiha does not consider in it.
We’ll see what head coach Mike Tomlin publicizes in regards to the beginning quarterback in Week 17 in opposition to the Seattle Seahawks on the highway, whether or not it is Kenny Pickett getting back from harm or rolling with the recent hand in Mason Rudolph once more.
Nevertheless it does not matter to Chadiha, as a result of the Steelers do not win both sport and do not get into the playoffs. A daring model of Chadiha to be sincere. Nonetheless an comprehensible one.
The Steelers simply misplaced three video games in a row and have been eradicated by the Colts earlier than bouncing again in opposition to the Bengals. Issues really feel good for the Steelers proper now, however will probably be a troublesome process for the franchise to win the ultimate two video games of the season and presumably clinch the playoffs.
It may be achieved surely. However Chadiha does not consider it.
