Default Steelers: "We are Super Bowl material"

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07242/813310-66.stm

At least we know our Steelers are confident. They kind of share the same vibe as us fans. They're not an 8-8 team. But talk is easy. You say you're SB material, show up and show the league and the fans that '06 was just a fluke. Show the Ratbirds that 2006 was just a fluke. Show the Clowns on opening day that they still suck, Limit the stupid penalties, and finally, limit the stupid turnovers.

I dunno. I'd say you were an 8-8 team.

Thats the kinda denial thats leads (when perpetrated by the players/coaches) to ....well....8-8 seasons.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Well I would hope they feel they are Super Bowl material. I would be a little disappointed if they stated/felt they were a 6-10 football team.

Interviewer: Well, do you guys feel you are Super Bowl material?

Hines Ward: Nah man. We are a 6-10 football team. Don't bother watching us. We stink.

While it is great that the guys appear to have a lot of confidence in themselves and each other, I hope they don't go into this season as overconfident. I truly believe their "swollen heads" from winning SB XL in 2005 was a factor in their poor play last season, especially in the first half.

One game at a time.

No, we were an 8-8 team last year. This year, every team is potential Super Bowl material. And if they don't feel that way right now, they aren't.

Whether you think you can, or think you can't; you're right.

Amen. I would be worried if the team didn't have the goal of making it to the Super Bowl. Isn't that the point of the season? To win a championship?

An 8-8 team that was among only three teams to be in the top 10 in both overall offense and defense. The other two teams, the 12-4 Pats and the 14-2 Chargers, pretty good company.

Thats all pretty meaningless when your QB keeps throwing the ball to the opposition, your ST keep fumbling, the whole teams suffers from a collective lack of discipline.....those are hall marks of a mediocre team.

I suspect the 'offense' rankings were based upon yardage gained - most probably because they trailed so often in games finding new ways to lose every other week.

Regardless, as Mosca says, last year was last year - their have been enough changes in Pittsburgh this year to almost totally discount it.
