Peter King is generally one of the less knowledgable writers when it comes to football....so this does not surprise me.

dont sweat it. We are talking about peter pumpkin head king. This is a guy who said danny wuerfull would be a pro bowler under steve spurrier in washington. He is also another reason why art monk isnt in the hall of fame.

He also seems to think the NY Giants, who damn near imploded at the end of the season (and only made the playoffs by virtue of being in the NFC), are better than we are as well. NY Giants > Steelers = ZERO credibility.

Phhhhht. If you look at the whole season, I don't see how you could rank the Steelers any HIGHER. Sure, we COULD HAVE BEEN better; or, based on talent, sure we have more talent than some of those teams.

But, we lost to Oakland. We gave away games we should have won. I remember my Dad calling during the middle of the first half of the San Diego game, and I told him we were pushing them all over the field (we were)... and then we self-destructed.

And, when it came right down to needing a win to get into the playoffs, we got hammered by Baltimore (who got knocked out of the playoffs by the so-so Colts).

We'll be better next year. But getting better has to start with admitting just how bad we played this year. Lack of talent wasn't an excuse, and might even highlight the following truth: you had to play pretty bad football to lose with that much talent.

You are so right....after the amazing SB run we ended a mediocre 8-8 with essentially the same team. While we had the physical personnel to be sure, but we just got so settled and complacent...and it showed on the field with mental errors and overall bad decision making.
But I think the players are painfully aware of this, and are going to work harder next season. I like to believe they know what they have to do.

2007...the journey to XLII starts

i see everyone is gonna pile on peter king who is one of the best, most knowledgable sportwriters covering the nfl just because he doesnt put the steelers in the top 20. you got to think about it. the steelers o-line and lb's seemed to get old quick, and it seems like the whole coaching staff is being replaced for one 8-8 season. theres no reason to put them in the top 20.

my only real disagreement with reading his "fine 15" every week is as soon as the steelers lost to the ravens, he placed the panthers above the steelers. panthers are definitely in as bad of shape or worse than the steelers and we crushed them.

You earn your praise/rankings. We did not earn a damn thing this year besides an early vacation.

I have no problem with his rankings. It's our job to prove him/them wrong next year.

I agree, the only thing is I think we are better then the Rams. The Titans ended the year on a mich hgher note with Vince Young emerging. Just because we were a mediocre team last year is no reason to jump all over a guy who I typicall feel has given Pittsburgh an edge in his rankings. I think he is a fair, knowledgeable writer. Frankly Im a fan. We, the Steelers, are the reason we are not ranked higher in some imaginary poll...not Peter King.
