reality check, please.

when the 2007 steelers win 8 straight, including four playoff games on the road, and hoist the trophy, then they will be better than the 05 team. hell, if they win the super bowl, they will be as good or better than the 05 team.

it may be simplistic, but the team that wins the bowl is always the best team that year. we keep score with touchdowns, not "talent points"

exactly. this team may have better talent but they haven't proven it on a playoff run or playoff game

I don't know if they're better or not, but it would be hard to find a team anywhere that had more heart than that team did.

What they did was amazing.

We have a Bingo! It is way too early to guage this team yet. But must say that they have put themselves in a nice position.

the SB team was coming off a 15 - 1 season ,which means they played a much more difficult schedule. as had been said already, lets wait till the seasons over to make accurate comparisons...

I guess I missed this question when it was posted last week after the Arizona game

As posted previously, the 2005 team beat Cincy, Denver, and Indy on the road. This team has won in Cleveland and lost in Arizona.

But if you want to break it down, the passing offense is better (throwing to the TE - who knew that was legal?) , Davenport is not yet the peer of Bettis to kill clock, I am not sold on 2007 Harrison being the equal of 2005 Porter, and the CBs (particularly Deshea) are still a concern.

Until they win the SB any comparison is premature.

Man.....a win against Seattle causes this?

I'm impressed with the way they bounced back after losing to Arizona. I'll keep it at that. Up next.....Denver.

Were we watching the same game? Pittsburgh was covering the whole field without Troy. We played a very good defensive game in the secondary. Especially our corners. They stepped up when Troy was out. I don't like Deshea - I think its time to move to Bryant more regularly.

This team is very talented and has beat up some bad teams, and had an impressive win over an okay team. We still lost to the guys who basically made the Steelers who they are today, and not to belittle Tomlin, but this team is still Cowher's doing. Wait a few years til you start comparing him to Cowher. This is the team assembled by the coaches we lost to in Arizona.

Let's see what happens after Denver, Cincinnati, Baltimore (this team may not be playing well, but they are pretty close to the team that managed to man handle us twice last season). We also have the Pats in a few weeks, and they don't look to be very vulnerable this season.

In short, we have a lot to do to prove that Tomlin isn't just riding a Cowher high (similar to Gruden riding Dungy's) and even more to do to prove that this team is better than the '05 Super Bowl team.
