Default Re: Steelers of late always slow to get respect

Only thing that bothers me is that the fact the Steelers are so underrated is a really bad comment about the quality of general football analysis in the media.

If you measure quality of a team by how well they do in the playoffs, and measure the strength of a team by what it has done in recent years (say the past 6 years), the rank goes #1 Pats #2 Steelers #3 Colts.

I think the Steelers are seen as kind of villains. The bad guys that are always one of the best and who actually not only win football games but do long term damage to teams through physical play and pure intimidation. I like that. Much rather be a fan of this bad-ass team than the fairy-tale teams in New England and Indianapolis.

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
The Steelers are & have been one of the 3 power teams over the past several years...IMO, the 3 include your Steelers, my Patriots and the Colts. I think thats pretty easy to agree upon.

I think fans of each team looks forward to the games when we play one another as the highlights of our respective seasons. It's wierd now that all 3 of us have won SB's recently. I laughed at Charger fans who were trying to tell me they were one of the elite teams...now look at them....bottom line is "ya gotta earn it"! and that is only done by consistently being at or near the top over several years.

Our game will be one to get all fired up over. But we have a long wait ahead.

here's to both teams staying healthy so we can be at our best for that game. Your fans always travel up to New England for the games you play us...can't miss the ol' black & gold!

The sports analysis Just said quote,

NOT the STEELERS ARE YOU JOKING ME
Either Rome forgot the Patriots were playing the Steelers or he's just stupid.

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.
83-Steelers-43 is EXACTLY RIGHT! In years past, when the media started praising the Steelers, the Steelers started losing games that they should have been winning.
It was as if the Steelers players started believing the hype and they began to play with less intensity.

Look at all of the Cowher teams that were "media favorites" to win the AFC and move on to the Super Bowl. Well as we all know it worked against us most of the time.
Cowher's one Super Bowl victory was achieved when we were the underdogs, the un-mentioned, so let's roll with that again this season and see what happens.

I'm just sick of the media still talking about Ben's accident and his appendectomy. It's almost as if they are trying to jinx him....

We are definitely going to beat the Pats.....

I'm with 83 on this one. Who the hell cares what the media thinks or doesn't think? We know what these Steelers are made of and from their play thus far, so does the coaching staff and team, so why get your panties in a bunch over what a group of self-proclaimed soothsayers think?

Just like the 2005 magical season - it's going to be great seeing those morons making the mad dash to backpedal with a big ol' on their faces.

I don't know where you live so that might have an affect. I however have 3 espns that I watch regularly. Literally the only thing I watch. I have yet to see a mention of us as legit contenders.

or do we?

It has some benefits definitly, but since they only play once a week I think part of the fun during the season is hearing about how good your team is. Seeing them, and hearing about them in the media, gives me something to chew on during the week. If it wasn't for this forum I'd be goin' NUTS!!!
