    For four straight seasons, the market has undervalued the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have gone over their win total in each year from 2020-23. So the proper strategy would be to just take their Over again in 2024 and expect more of the same, right? Well, it's not so simple. Most people know that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin hasn't posted a losing record in any of his 17 seasons with the team, but that comes with the caveat that the first 12 of those teams had positive point differentials, which was true of just one of the last five Steelers teams.

    The Steelers' continued run of success has come despite below average offenses the last five years, and the team took steps to break that trend by first getting rid of offensive coordinator Matt Canada during last season then rebooting at quarterback this offseason. In comes the much-maligned Russell Wilson, whose PFF ranking of 18th out of 38 qualified quarterbacks last year conflicts with the public perception he probably ranked somewhere in the 50s. Wilson isn't the same player who made the Seahawks perennial Super Bowl contenders, but is he much worse than Ryan Tannehill, who enjoyed two strong seasons late in his career with new Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith running the show?

    The defense, led by All-Pro edge rusher T.J. Watt, will continue to be the bedrock of the team and will likely be tasked with carrying much of the weight of success early on as the offense gets its feet underneath it. That needs to happen by midseason, as a brutal second half includes eight straight games to close the season against teams projected by the betting market to have winning records, including all six of Pittsburgh's divisional matchups. If the Steelers don't appear to be a playoff-caliber team by the time that stretch starts, that may be all she wrote for Tomlin's impressive run of avoiding losing seasons.
