Could the City of Pittsburgh Be Seeing No.7 in the End?

As you all know, the Steelers had won their sixth Super Bowl this 2008 season. Now at the end of these 17 weeks, we might see Pittsburgh in the playoffs again.

I think we can make it to the Super Bowl, once again. I believe this because of a couple reasons.

First, I can make that prediction because of Troy Polamalu. If he plays better than he did this year the defense will be even better than it was this year. Last year, he had a total of 54 tackles and 7 interceptions for 59 yards. He is a great asset to our team.

Then that brings me to James Harrison. Yes MR. D-fence himself. With 59 tackles and two interceptions he helped our team dramatically. He had a 100-yard touchdown run as we may all know, was during Super Bowl XL-III also being the longest play in Superbowl history.

He also helped our team by racking up 16 sacks in just the 2008 regular season.

We may not look at him this way, but Limas Sweed will help us lost with the loss of Nate Washington. We all may look at him like hes not worthy of playing with players like Hines Ward but in reality he just needs to concentrate and watch the ball all the way into his hands.Now if you still disagree, think of this.

How would you feel if you were going to make a huge catch? Wouldn't you want to see yourself make a huge play like that? He has all the reason to look at himself in the big screen but he should have been looking at the ball we all know that but you have to admit you probably would have done the same thing.

Hines Ward we all know will be great. His statistics are just too awesome to mention in an article like this. All you have to know is that he has to be one of the best receivers in NFL history when it comes to making hits on a defender, and his amazing catches.

We also can not forget his never ending smile that we have grown to love, well some of us.

If we can get Santonio Holmes to run like he did on that punt return against the San Diego Chargers he might become a great punt/ kick returner and could potentially help score a lot of points and he would also make his whole team along with the Hardcore Steelers fan like myself happy.

"Fast" Willie Parker, if not injured should be able to come back and run right down the field behind Carey Davis. And for Rashard Mendenhall He should come back and relieve Mewelde Moore from his back up position.

Then we have two players like William Gay and Ryan Clark that are not as well known as Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu, but they still play a big part in the team's success.

Then we have non-talked-about linemen like Casey Hampton, who does a lot of work and gets no credit. Without the linemen, no one would get anywhere. Ra'shon Harris and the other soon to be drafted linemen will also be in that category with all the work but little credit.

Though with all these top-notch players we have a Elite waiting to come out and shine.  Big Ben, though not an elite yet, Practically carries this team. He is known for his forth quarter come backs and his ability to bomb the ball accurately.

He also is known for his "questionable" throws to Santanio Holmes two centimeters from the goal line and the boundary line.

With all these amazing players, even the ones that i didn't mention like Jeff Reed or Lawrence Timmons and the new stars that could be drafted by Pittsburgh They do indeed have a chance to repeat what they did these season.

I hate to break it to the good and loyal Patriots fans on here, but I do think that Pittsburgh has a chance to roll right over your team and take their seventh Super Bowl title, if the Patriots let up the sides to Lamarr Woodley and James Harrison.

We'll just have to wait and see. That's all I can say, but good luck to every team and happy cheering to every football fan reading this!
