Default Are the Steelers Over-rated

Do you think the Steelers are over rated? If so, why?

No, they may be weak at WR more so this year than last. I think we are stronger in the secondary this year. Ben should be improved, so I think we'll definately be a contender again this year.

Always seems like a weird question. First you have to tell us where exactly the Steelers are rated.
I would have them down as the second best team in the conference - but then I am not going to go and say that they are over-rated then am I?
Unless I was schizophrenic of course.


Which Im not, by the way.

I think we are underrated/overlooked because all the talk is about the Ravens in the division.Many people have us finishing third in the division!

No. if we were rated No.1 then yes we would be overrated. The Pats have one the last three of four , so they are deserving of the No.1 spot. I wish we were more underrated, to give us more of a fight.
I don`t think that you can have the No.1 defense and be overrated.
Not to mention all the rating stuff is non sense anyway.

Believe me, outside smack talking Bungles fans, no-one is under-rating the Steelers this year....sorry to pull that security blanket away from you Blitzburgh

Everyone is gonna be gunning for you - almost as rabidly as they will be coming after the Pats. Beating a team that went 15-1 the previous year is till something of an achievement for some teams...not mentioning any particular ones of course.

Cheers

I think Pittsburgh is slightly overated because everyone is expecting the magic of last year again this year. The division is very tough with 3 of the 4 teams being contenders. But at least we all get to play the Clowns twice this year.
