Whoever wrote that article hasn't been watching any games. The Steelers' OL better than the Colts'? Not - that is our Achilles' Heel, IMO. The Pats' D better than the Steelers'? Again, not.

Steelers have a shot. Any team that gets in the playoffs has a shot. But you have to be peaking prior to getting in. Steelers did it in 2005. The Colts D got it together at the right time last year as well.

What pissed me off is when he said like the steelers dont have nearly as many playmakers as the colts or pats. WTF who do the colts have? name on of their starting LB's besides freeney and sanders who do they have? o thats right NO ONE! who do we have? well we have the most underrated MLB in James Farrior the best safety in the NFL troy polamalu the best PURE cover CB in Ike Taylor (as said by john madden) and we have the best 3-4 NT in the game Casey Hampton btw did i mention we have dick lebeau the nutsest D-Coordinator ever? screw the guy who made the article did no reasearch and has a fetish for the colts & Pats...

He also said "Pittsburgh is not as deep on defense as those two teams".

Ok, so we didn't post a shutout (which I do believe neither of those teams has) WITHOUT our top 2 defensive players? If that isn't depth, I don't know what is!

Clearly the writer is uneducated and on the bandwagon.

People doubted us in '05, and I never did. I believed we'd make it then and I believe we have a shot this year too.

Go Steelers!

What???

I think we are the deepest Defense in the league. We have 3 corners and 3 safeties who could be starters. We have 2 talented rookie linebackers as backups. We have Hoke to backup Hampton. Our DE backups arent the greatest but they are okay

Thank you!!

It is only a matter of time - Their D is old and on the way out. It's not as bad as the Eagles' situation, but yea...

There is no way that Pittsburgh can run the table -- beating both Indianapolis and New England in January -- and show up in Arizona for Super Bowl XLII.
is this guy joking.

Yes it is unprobbly that we would be able to beat both teams but is his memory that bad. Flahback to super bowl XL
