Default CBS Sportsline Likes The Steelers

Time to start getting nervous - somebody actually thinks the Steelers may be a pretty good team and picks them to win the division. Link and excerpt below:

AFC North Preview: Let's go with the jaw-dropping choice

By Pete Prisco
CBSSports.com Senior Writer

Aside from the coach and a few faces here and there, this Pittsburgh team isn't much different from the one that owned the Super Bowl two seasons ago. With the new offensive style, look for them to get close again. They are the team to beat in the AFC North, which is a good division.

The Baltimore Ravens are the trendy pick, some even picking them to win the Super Bowl after their 13-3 season in 2006. But the pick here is for the Steelers to return to the playoffs by winning this division.

The Mike Tomlin era will get off to a good start.

Hell, I think yahoo.com had us winning the tiebreaker with Baltimore, both going 10-6, and I also saw some chick on ESPN8 or however many different channels they got, picking us as winning the whole f'n thing this year......

Steelers are never under the radar...

EDIT (to continue my last statement) ....., every team that sees us on the schedule know they're in for a battle, Steelers have never been a "walk over" team.

I think the good preseason has improved expectations.

Let's face it, the Steelers are barely "under the radar". Even last year, pundits were still saying the Steelers weren't a team to fall asleep on.

Glad to see this as well. Living in Baltimore you see all the idiot local writers picking the steelers performing at the same level as last year at 8-8 and the Ravens at 12-4. I don't know how they get away with it since their leader is a geriatric in McNair. But here's to another, hopefully less stressful than last year, season. It's a start of a new era and I 100% confidence that the Rooney's knew what they were doing when selecting Tomlin over Grimm and Wisenhut.
