Honestly, why do you care so much? How much respect did they give us on the road to our Super Bowl Victory last year. We weren't picked to win the division last year either. The Steelers seem to strive on proving the media and rest of the NFL wrong time and time again.

i really think the steeles play hard every week because they care about winning football games and not because they're out to prove the media wrong many players, for example troy polumalu, pay no attention to espn and the sports media

also its not that this is a huge deal to me id just like to know why the media has such a hard time picking the steelers

Well, you have to look at it from a non Pittsbugh media person / fan. They did BARELY make the playoffs last year and were not doing so great about 3/4 of the way through the season...and...they did lose the division.

As Bill Cowher said, they weren't the best team, they got hot at the right time and cruised.

Now, don't get me worng...they rule. And I think they have as good of a chance as anyone but you have to take the black & gold blinders off to see what the national media sees.

try like 4 years ago we were 6-10 and that's before we got BIG BEN!!
it's a whole different story now i don't see the STEELERS finishing anywhere near a 6-10 record as long as we got BIG BEN sooooooo push on and go spam your forums..... oh! maybe you Bungels don't have one

I think that any team in the NFL can go from being a good football team to a mediocre team any season.. scheduling, injuries, free agency, bootom feeders getting players in free agency with money to spend and good first round draft picks... can happen and usually does with any team after a certain amount of time.... that is what has been impressive about the Steelers since Cowher has been here .. 10 of 14 playoff years and normally having a very competitive team SuperBowl or no SuperBowl. Is something the fans have come to expect and enjoy and this year or the next 10 should be no different. The Steelers have been built with good decisions to be successful not for just one year or two... but for the future as well and we should be considered a playoff team for a long time. BUt, we can as any team have a down year... i just dont think this year.

I'm really amazed at how many people have actual jobs doing this sort of thing. He's got the Steelers at 8-8 and the Patriots at 12-4?

You know, there's nearly as much enjoyment in watching all these analysts eat crow during the season as there is watching actual games.

Adam Schwein: During the season, Adam hosts the station's pregame show, ‘The Sirius NFL Tailgate Show’, which also features analysts John Madden and Archie Manning.

When you post the moldy crumbs that fall off a table where these two Idiots are discussing how the Raiders were screwed in the 70's by the Steelers...and how the Steelers should have been beat by the Colts...why are we surprised that this guy gives no chance to Pittsburgh


...remember the old warner brothers cartoon with the small dog bouncing around the big dog saying...."what are we gonna do today Burt??!!..huh!!..huh!!..What are we gonna do today!!??......that would be Shwein.
