Although all seems dark at the moment as far as the division title is concerned, there is still a little light at the end of the tunnel.

There is still a chance that we can be atop the AFC North division in as little as five weeks from now, with a one game lead over Cincinnati.

We play two 5-4 teams in that time frame...@ Baltimore and Green Bay @ home. We are more than capable of winning both. With the other three teams being Kansas City 2-7, Oakland 2-7, and Cleveland 1-8.

While Cincinnati has to play a 6-3 team @ San Diego and a 8-1 team @ Minnesota. Which they are more than capable of losing. With the other three teams being as easy as our other three...Oakland 2-7, Cleveland 1-8, and Detroit 1-8.

Which means we can be 11-3 after our next five while Cincinnati can be 10-4. It is certainly not inconceivable.

The only reason I even bring it up is that it seems most Steeler fans have given up all hope of winning the division. When honestly, all hope is NOT gone!

Anything can happen in the NFL. This season has already proved that.

And although Cincinnati is in control of their own fate as far as the title is concerned, we are not out of it quite yet.

So all you Steeler faithful out there, keep the faith.

Who knows, maybe some Steelers read the articles on this site. Do you want to be part of the reason any Steeler player would stop believing in themselves after reading that they are already out of it or their fans have lost faith in them?

I sure don't.

We are the Steeler faithful! Not faithless. Wave those towels high.
