2015 Outlook:

Last year’s Steelers were different from most years.  Their offense was great while the defense was only average.  The offense should be great again.  Antonio Brown and Le’veon Bell might be the best players at their positions.  Both players are perfect for today’s passing game.  Martavis Bryant should be even better this year.  He’s out for the first four games of the season but Pittsburgh has some receivers that can competently fill in for him.  The Steelers are one of the top contenders for the best offense in the NFL.


They might have some problems on defense though.  They lost some longtime Steelers including Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu.  Those guys were at the end of their careers anyways but they still didn’t really replace them.  This defense will give up a lot of yards and won’t be too hard to score against.  The offense should be able to make up for their shortcomings though and win them a good number of games.

2015 Projected Record: 10-6
