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