Default Carucci: Steelers a middle-tier pretender

Here.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story;jsessi...o&confirm=true

I'm not surprised. I guess those two losses trump those 6 wins. Remember, the Steelers were picked to finish third in the AFC North in preseason. The Bungles and Ravens were to be the elite teams. We know how good those two are now. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if pundits pick the Browns (Their newest media darling) next week.

That said, maybe the Steelers aren't there yet this year. But one thing I will count on: This Steeler team has a good future. A fine nucleus of young players and a new Ben Roethlisberger hitting his prime at Quarterback. The Steelers just need to address the O-Line. Faneca and Starks are (supposedly) leaving.

now thats a flat out insult, obviously I can understand that the "experts" dont think will will beat the pats, but to call us pretenders? we are no doubt the 3rd best team in the NFL and we will be #1 come Dec 9th!

They generally are more consistent at playing at the lofty level necessary to even be mentioned in the same sentence as the Patriots and Colts. For that matter, I don't even know how rock-solid the Steelers are as the No. 3 team in their own conference. Another 6-2 club, Tennessee, makes a fairly compelling argument for that designation as well.
Tennessee doesnt have crap on us! Have you seen VY? he cant throw to save his life, stop the run and the Titans lose, simple

Nevermind after painfully reading the whole article, this guy is nothing more then a hormeristic Pats fan. I hope he falls asleep on his pen and pokes his eye out!

Carrucci is an idiot, he states that baltimore's injuries dimish the Steeler win and in his next topic he states that the colts injuries had no bearing in thier loss to the pats.

I don't mind. I prefer the media and other teams consider us a non-contender. In the past, this mindset has helped the team perform better. And even if this team isn't the same one who would be fired up by the lack of respect, I can't see that it would hurt them to have the pundits declare us second class. Whatever. They will know how good this team is after we beat their ass.

There is no such thing as a football expert. The only way you can be an expert is in something that has proven factual basis. Football prognosticating is something that you cannot prove. The experts are just people who get paid for their opinion, which is no more or less valid than that of any person on this forum. The only difference is that they get press access to the teams.

we're getting some love on nfl live. those guys always seem to like us to be quite honest. usually its the sports writers who dont give us much of a chance, not so much the players.

I'm also still bothered by Pittsburgh's losses at Arizona (3-5) and Denver (3-5). A truly elite team should dominate weaker opponents.
he seems to forget that dallas struggled with buffalo after the steelers kicked the bills ass !!! the titans went to the wire with oakland ,atlanta ,jags and houston ....green bay barely beat denver.,washington, vikings ,chargers ,eagles lost to chicago
