Super Bowl MVP Ready for new season
When the Steelers kickoff the first game of the season infront of the whole of the National Football League they will be trying to show the league something they did not just three years back. A serious threat at another title run. The whole Steelers locker room are vocal of how they cannot play like they did back during the 2006 season.
Hines Ward has already told press that he does not think the Steelers will have such bad performences that they would go less than anything under 10-6. Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes was more vocal speaking to the press "I want to havea career high setting season at least 1000 plus yards and 10 touchdowns" That would be enough for him to be voted to the Pro Bowl but his performence alone won't get them back into the Post Season. Their defence took a considerable slide during the 2006 season after just allowing 284.0 Yards Per Game and 16.1 Poins Per Game they slipped considerably to the 9th ranked defense giving up 300.3 Yards Per Game and 19.7 Per Game. The only good thing about that year was Willie Parkers performence averaging 4.4 yards per play and piled up 1,494 at the end of the year coupled with 13 touchdowns earned him a Pro Bowl Appearence.
When the Steelers run out for the first time since 2006 as the National Football League and American Football Conference Champions they will need to make a statement and brush aside the Titans to make them look serious title contenders.
