Will the Steelers be able to overcome this offseason?

Since winning the Super Bowl trophy in 2009 there hasn’t been a lot for Steelers fans to cheer about as most of the headlines surrounding this team actually have nothing to with the NFL betting lines action, but rather embarrassing off the field incidents.

The Steelers had high hopes entering last season but string of inexplicable losses to awful teams in the middle of the NFL gambling schedule denied the team a chance to defend it’s Super Bowl betting trophy. Despite finishing the season 9-7, losses to the lowly Chiefs, Raiders and others sunk the NFL playoff betting hopes of this team and hopefully taught them the importance of not taking anything for granted when it comes to NFL betting lines action.

That difficult lesson likely would have served the team well as they prepare during the NFL gambling off season, and it still might, but the offseason has brought nothing but more headaches for the proud franchise and even before the first whistle is blown, the 2010 NFL betting season will be plenty challenging.

QB Ben Roethlisberger has had an interesting off season to say the least. While he avoided jail time or being traded he’s got plenty of work to do in the locker room to regain the respect of his teammates. In fact, he may regain that, and that could lead to a horrible result in the NFL gambling season ahead.

But if any team can survive this type of turmoil it’s the Steelers. Coach Mike Tomlin made some mistakes last year, but he’s young, he’s learned from those errors and he’s just about as professional as they come in the NFL betting action. The loss of star WR Santonio Holmes also will have major effect on the Steelers offensive game plan, but with the emergence of speedy Mike Wallace and the return of veteran Randal Antwuan-El this group should be just fine.

If the Steelers defense can carry the team through the 4-stretch that Big Ben will be suspended at the beginning of het NFL gambling season, this team should make the playoffs and at that point, anything is possible.
