Default Steelers in Power rankings

I've been looking in a couple of power rankings and in almost everyone of them the steelers are ranked in the top 5. I would post to links to CBS sportsline, Fox sports, and NFL.com but im not allowed because of my post count.


How do you guys feel about that? Im not really a big fan of ranking us at the top, I like when people doubt us..thats when we perform our best.

I dont care for the "no respect" motivation. I want the attitude that they are they best and belong in the top of the rankings.

This is the NFL not College power rankings are irrelevant. A couple of weeks ago the Saints were either the #1 or #2 team in the NFC according to some of the experts how many of thoughs guys are willing to stick with that pick now and it is only 2 weeks in.

as long as they act like theyve been there (which we all know they have).

the alternative is the steelers can sandbag, and barely squeak by opponents, so all the writers continue to overlook and disrespect them. i'll take the record, and forget about the "radar".

I take these things with a grain of salt. Just look at the Fox Sports list. The Steelers are number five after Da Bears. C'mon, the Bears? No disrespect, but...c'mon,

The only rankings that count are the current 2-0 ranking.

So true. Who would have thought before week 1 that the Saints would be 0-2 and the Texans would be 2-0?

The only thing I care about the Steelers being number one in is the division standings.

Ok, possibly the conference standings too. You know, for the whole "bye week in the playoffs" thing.

I enjoy reading the power rankings but other than that, they are nothing more than an entertainment value.
