The Steelers have multiple games this year that could go either way if played today. What is the worst and best that should be expected of them?
In sports, there are such things as “trap games,” matchups that are able to be won while also having the ability to result in a jarring loss. But part of what makes them so-called “traps” is where they’re placed on a team’s schedule.
When the schedule in question has too many of these, though, it becomes less about occasional hiccups here and there and more about just having a schedule that is completely unpredictable, and that is exactly what the Pittsburgh Steelers have awaiting them this Fall.
Now part of this does have to do with the lack of predictability surrounding the Steelers themselves, as they have several new faces joining their cast on both sides of the ball. Entering an entirely new era is never easy for a franchise, but it’s all the more complex when trying to manage a brutal array of opponents at the same time.
But nonetheless, we are still going to try our best at ignoring all of the uncertainty. The task before us today is to pick apart Pittsburgh’s upcoming stretch, categorizing all wins and losses (and maybe even ties) to the point of discovering both the worst and best that the Steelers can realistically do.
