Now...I know this is really hard to hear...but this team reminds me of the Steeler teams back in the days of early Ben. Now, most of this is based on memory so feel free to prove me wrong. Allow me to point out some general reasons:
1) Strength of the team is on defense. Great secondary. Knack for generating red-zone turnovers.
2) Efficient on offense. Good red-zone scoring efficiency. QB can escape trouble and turn disasters into big plays.
3) Excellent special teams all around.
4) Lots of luck. I used to think those Steeler teams were really luck until I watched us play this year. It isn't luck...these players are ready to force and recover fumbles, make interceptions, and come down with miraculous catches.
I'll always hate them...but I have some new respect for those Steeler teams.
