Default The HERD: Power Poll

I listen to Colin Cowherd, every morning, on my commute. The guy is very educated, and usually spot on. I don't always "like" what he says, but he is usually very accurate. He doesn't play favorites nor does he sugar-coat anything.

Anyway, he presented his NFL power poll this morning, and he had BALT dropping to 10... and on their way down. As he stated, "A defense that was already bad (two straight games giving up 200 yards rushing) got considerably worse when they lost Ray Lewis & Lardarius Webb.

At 8... (insert drumroll here)... PITT.

Colin's rationale:
the Steelers have been banged up/they will get healthy; they know how to win/winning culture; and, most importantly, Big Ben.

He pointed out that BB is 73% completion percentage on 3rd down... which is the best in the league... and means: as long as BB is playing, the Steelers have a shot to win the SuperBowl.
