The Steelers went 6-10 just a couple years ago...it's not too far-fetched to see them going 8-8, especially with question marks surrounding Big Ben and the running game. Especially in this division, I wouldn't be completely shocked to see the Steelers or the Bengals drop to .500.

Look at what happened last year when everyone doubted us...we won the Super Bowl!!! As far as I'm concerned they can keep giving us no respect...it just gives our guys another reason to go out and kick some butt!!!

Woody & Skip were predicting the AFC North...
I think Woody predicted Baltimore to go 13-3...

If the Steelers go 8-8 it is because Big Ben is hurt about all year. I honestly think that if Batch had to start all year we could be a .500 team.. so you think that these writters honestly think that Ben cant win more 3 or 4 more games than Batch? I agree that our schedule is alot harder on paper right now, but as the season goes along and there is suprises everywhere around the league I think that our schedule can get easier or a little harder..We know our division has improved with the Ravens getttin' a decent QB.. but can he hold up? The Bengals are gonna still be Very Potent on Offense but I think their Dee is gonna let them down again this season..The Browns just havent done much to improve in my opinion.. except if Winslow Jr is completely healed and can make a big difference for that team if he is..
God Bless

The Steelers always find a way to overcome adversity and have enough depth at the key positions (other than QB, imo, but I'm hoping Charlie will surprise me!) to compensate for injuries. They are like the little train that could - when no one believes in them but themselves, they respond - much to the chagrin of their opponents. 2005 is proof positive of that.

True, but then you have 2004.....

Me thinks people worry too much about talking heads on talk shows....who cares what the "experts" pick anyway???

As Peter King, the best NFL writer around, said: Picking winners is a effort in futility in the NFL.

All it does is sell magazines and help ratings. In the NFL, anyone has a chance cause of parity. Whatever happens, it will be exciting to watch!

There aren't many out there who believe in us again this season, but the most important thing here is that the Steelers continue to believe in themselves and each other and WE believe. Our boys salivate at the thought of being the underdog. When they were at the 7-5 mark last season, most of the sports media and even some fans were ready to put a fork in them and all that disbelief did was make them stronger, fiercer, unstoppable. All I can say here is -I wouldn't want to be on the other side of them when they feel they aren't given the respect they have earned. Just ask da Bears, Vikes, Brown, Lions, Bungles, Dolts, Broncs and Hawks.

but the point im trying to make is that it seems that the media outside of pittsburgh has some personal vendetta against the steelers this year
normally im the last person to call conspiracy theory but i havnt seen one person pick pittsburgh to win the afc north which is pretty lame since we did in fact just win the super bowl and... lost almost no starters!
