It's not an excuse, it's a fact. Just like how you point out how the Ravens will be 'dead even' with Burgh since they moved to BAL if they win next Sunday. That is true.

The Steelers are not a case of the Habs in Hockey or Yanks in baseball beating up on a handful of teams (in a diluted playoff) and 'padding' thier title numbers.

Since the implementation of the SB and then the merger, the Steelers are, for now, GOAT (with the 49ers, Cowboys, Packers and Pats also in the discussion).

Not trying to 'pick a fight', just pointing out facts.

The Ravens are an excellent franchise and they have the last 12+ years as proof. Still, the last 12 years and this recent run to the SB shouldn't cloud judgment and lead to ADD logic where the long[er] term excellence of other franchises like the Steelers is marginalized or negated.

Don't let immediate news blind you to history.
