Does the Steel Curtain Still Exist?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-3, not a good start for the six-time Super Bowl champions. In fact, this is the team’s worst start since 2006. And without a doubt, this is a jagged little pill to swallow for Terrible Towel waivers that have watched their beloved Steelers enjoy a 6-2 start from 2007-2011.
Some are beginning to question the veracity of the Steel Curtain, especially after the way Raiders running back Darren McFadden tore holes in it during Week 3.
Could it be that the Steel Curtain is on life support? It’s hard to say at this point, though many fans are wondering if this season will be a repeat of 2009—or worse, a repeat of 2006. But hey, past performance does not equate future performance. I mean, there’s a rhyme and reason to the term "Any Given Sunday."
This week, the Steelers face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in a pivotal Week 7 matchup on Sunday Night Football. While both teams’ defenses are suspect, I’m still going with the Steelers, simply because they have more at stake. A 3-3 record gives the Steelers momentum, but most of all, confidence.
The only missing link to seal the deal for the rest of the season is Troy Polamalu. When this safety is injured, the entire Steelers fan base becomes unraveled.
Sunday Night Football matchup, it’s only Week 7. No one knows for sure what direction the Steelers will go in 2012. However, I am confident of this: if the Steelers do secure a win tonight, it will certainly be a step in the right direction. They can improve to 3-3 and stop the bleeding of the 2006 Steelers.

The injury list has hurt the steelers this season .. Mendenhall,Pouncey, and Troy.. Troy is missed on the D team so bad it like the D has stop.. If the D hold up tonight they might win.. Big Ben almost has a perfect record in Ohio but he ant playing with the same D either..Im going with the steelers on this but they got to make it happen on the miss plays from the Bengals (turnover interception &etc)..

The Steelers usually finish strong so it will be interesting to see how they will finish the 2012 season.

Not so commonly but few more people still use it! I personally don't like it. I prefer the wooden blinds. However, thanks for writing about the 'Steel Curtain'.
