If he knew anything about sports he would not be writing for Sports Illustrated. With the internet, there are much better sources to get good info. I always find good sport blogs to read.

Hey,
Just remember one thing... we were ONLY 8 games away from going undefeated this past year :)

All kidding aside, even if the Steelers did become “fat cats” after the long-awaited SB win, we still could have made the playoffs if it weren’t for all the turnovers. That’s what killed us the most… not because of the coach, not because of no pass-rush and not because of a poor secondary.

We didn't get beat in at least 4 of our loses. We beat ourselves (as much of a cliche as that is).

As for Peter King, he's an idiot! The only thing worse than listening to him is listening to Chris Collinsworth! I'd rather listen to John Madden talk gibberish on Sunday than listen to Peter King or read his worthless insight!

Hmmmm, lets see. As a writer, would I rather:

Write for Sports Illustrated, and get total access to training cams, locker rooms; have the largest audience of any sports medium, with both print AND internet readership, and GET PAID REALLY WELL TO DO IT....

OR, write a sports blog and get read by a few hundred people and get paid NOTHING.

Now as a reader, would I rather:

Read someone good with whose opinion I disagree, even though the writer has resouces that allow him access to a lot of information I'd never know otherwise...

OR, search out some obscure sports blog where the author's opinions match my own, even though he knows nothing more about the subject than I do.


The guy writes for SI because he is a good writer with lots of good insight. I'll take Peter King over any other NFL writer out there, except maybe Greg Easterbrook. There isn't a blog writer out there who wouldn't kill to trade places with him.

Please explain to me what the difference is. Whether you didn't have the talent, or the talent didn't perform, in either case you can't count that as a win. And in neither case can you say that beating ones self means that a team deserves a higher ranking or rating.

King has often written that he could just as easily move a half a dozen teams around in the middle of the rankings, that the teams from 12 to 20 are almost interchangeable. Hey, we hammered the Saints pretty good. But we also lost to the Raiders pretty bad, and got hammered twice by one of the lesser playoff teams. Screw it, this season is over. But who could possibly rank the Steelers, at 8-8 with lots of disappointing losses, anywhere near the top 15 teams without using a seriously biased filter? I'd put us right around 17-18 or so.

The difference in getting beat and beating yourself is simple (IMHO). When a team beats you, they do the things that Baltimore did against us. The Oakland game was not based on the raiders performance but instead on individual player's inability to execute - and IMHO that means we beat ourselves.

As for Peter King, he's just another overrated sports writer who after he got where he got, he forgot how to do his job. He may have access to all those things but it doesn't make his ability to interpret and transpose onto paper those ideas, great or even good! He's just like Chris Berman (the Bills) - jump on a bandwagon and ride it into the ground, only to resurrect it later (with the look what I said mentality)!

I'm not saying that the Steelers deserve to be at the top of the list but I definitely fill that on paper and looking at the players on the roster, they deserve to be up around the top 12 (regardless of record - which Peter King obviously has thrown out in some of his placements).

But you are right, this season is over. The only thing we can do now is move forward to 2007. New coach, New attitude, Another trophy!
