Gil Brandt gives a small peek into 2006. This is what he said about the Steelers.....

Pittsburgh Steelers
What do you do for an encore for a team that went 15-1 with a rookie quarterback? (The 1998 Minnesota Vikings were the last team to win 15 games; they went 10-6 the next season.) The Steelers were ranked No. 1 on defense last year and they return all 11 starters, plus they get Pro Bowl defensive tackle Casey Hampton back after he missed the final 10 games in 2004. Kendall Simmons, a starter on the offensive line in 2003, also returns after missing the entire 2004 season. The Steelers did lose wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who gained 19.9 yards per catch last season, but rookie tight end Heath Miller should be a future NFL star. Pittsburgh plays home games against New England, Jacksonville and Green Bay, plus three tough Monday Night Football games. The Steelers are an outstanding organization from top to bottom.

"The question facing the Patriots is whether the first dynasty of the salary-cap era can continue. I think the answer is yes, as long as coach Bill Belichick and player personnel VP Scott Pioli remain."

Pioli gave his notice at the end of last season. This is his either his last year, or next year is. Can't remember which. That is really going to hurt.

"The Steelers are an outstanding organization from top to bottom"

Not a bad line Cleve, but not as good as this: "From the lady who answers the phones to owner Bob Kraft, no one does it better than the New England Patriots."

I had a feeling we would like different lines! I will only say " The Pats are still the team to beat"

I personally like this one..

Baltimore Ravens
If the Ravens are going to be a factor, they need to improve an offense that ranked 31st in the league last year and scored only 24 touchdowns -- 11 rushing and 13 passing. In contrast, the New England Patriots scored 44 offensive touchdowns


:rofl: thats just pathetic !!!
