Default Steelers of late always slow to get respect

Hey I still haven't heard much about the steelers around sports t.v. or radio. This seems to be the case over, and over including our championchip year. All I hear is about the Colts & Patriots, and even the Chargers, and how sooooooo talented they are. We have the youngest quaterback ever to win a superbowl. Not to mention his rookie starting record. We constantly are among the elite in defense, and all I hear about is the Ravens. Our running back is running for 100 yards a game time, and time again, and all I hear is L.T., and Larry Johnson. Where is all the black, and Gold around the sports stories? Last years numbers were among the top in the NFL if it weren't for all the int's. I am sick, and could just laugh when we were predicted to come in 3rd in our division amongst sports writers. Yeah The Ravens kicked our butts last year, but we beat the bangels to finish the season, and shoul have beat them inthe first game. We definitly outplayed them. They'll jump on the bandwagon at about week 14 after we go after the Pats.
Peace & Grace- Black & Gold

i have to disagree with you. i have seen us a ton on espn and the front page of various football websites. allan rossum was just on espn first take yesterday. everywhere i have seen has us in the top 3 or 4.. thats not really flying under the radar imo.

i find this to be true as well. and they love to point out that our competition has been weak.
willie parker is the nfl's leading rusher in yards and i have barely heard 2 words about him.

we're not underdogs by less than a touchdown because the Pats are the Underdogs in the game

Media doesn't show us enough love.

Media showing us love is a bad thing. Better to stay under the radar.



Praise us, hate us....I don't really care. Scratch that, I do not care in the least bit. The final score after four quarters is all I care about.

I love being the underdog because I enjoy listening to the media jerkoffs say how they knew that the Steelers were gonna do this, and be this, and win this...but when the predictions came out before the season the Steelers were third in the division at best (yes, some picked Cleveland to finish above us), no where near talented enough to even compete for the playoffs, and most had us at 7-9 at best...not even .500!

But what sucks for me when it comes to the underdog role...I live in Cleveland. I don't get much Steeler news here if I cannot get online for a little while. So if ESPN isn't talking about the Steelers because we're "off the radar", then I miss out on some important stuff.
