Default ESPN.com standings..

I just had to say something about this because I knew for a fact once I looked at the updated standings, we would be third behind the colts, even though our conference record is btter than theirs.


It is just stupid they still want to hype the stupid colts V pats, even if they aren't justly in second place.

I know it is not a big deal at all, I know, but still.

I just chuckled when I sa the colts second and the Steelers third, I was like yep..

Oh and NFL.com as well..

Apparently our better conference record doesn't matter when it comes to moving ahead of the Colts.

The CBS NFL Crew gave us our props yesterday with both Boomer and Marino saying that we were the 2nd best team in the league.

Yea I know.

I was just talking about the way the standings should be laid out.

We statistically, at this point, if the playoffs started tomorrow, would have a first round bye over the colts.

I know it is a bit ridiculous to say this, but hey we are justfully in second!

Rankings don't mean squat to me.

At the end, One team will be number 1, and that's all that matters.

Go Steelers!!!!!

Power Rankings are fun to read but really don't mean much. I say let the Steelers fly under the radar. What matters are wins and losses and making it to the playoffs. Once you get there, records go out the window and it's a one game season.

I think bozz723 is referring to the official NFL standings published on ESPN.com, not the Power Rankings.
