What's the conventional wisdom on why the Steelers did so much better last year than this year? They will probably make the playoffs, but just barely. Was it losing Plaxico Burress? I never thought he was so great on Pitt, but he's doing well with NYG. Are they aging on the O-line and D-line? Wouldn't you think the Rothlesburger's 2nd year should have been better than his first? Nobody's talking much about the Steelers as the playoffs approach.
