Worst Case Scenario:
0-16, everyone gets fired, retired, and there’s a new hire. Overly pessimistic, I know.
Let’s Ben isn’t at full strength and has a luke-warm season, the ground game can’t get going, and the defense plays at a slightly lower level than last year… and of course health issues.
If these things come to pass, it could be the end of the Ben & Tomlin era as we know it. Then, it would not be a fun year in the Steel City.
If the offense can’t make strides and maintains a low level of play, it could be the first losing season under Mike Tomlin.
In this case, I’m getting a 7-9 type of record.
This season will rest very much on the arm and experience of Ben Roethlisberger. If the defense can maintain an elite level of play, a 7-9 or 8-8 season could be the likely scenario.
As I look at the schedule, I get the feeling this could be an 11-5 or 12-4 type of season if the general expectations for the Steelers roster are mostly met.
Time will tell as we anticipate the start of the 2020 season. Make no mistake, all of football nation is praying the coronavirus will be minimized come kick-off for the college and NFL seasons.
