Same phenomenon that had the Browns winning the AFCN on paper back in March - IOW, we don't make big splashes in FA.

Reasonable and expected. I wonder what those experts think about picking the 3-5 Browns to win the division

You all gotta remember... Many of those players played against us, and remember our crowds taking over their stadiums, our defense putting a spanking on them, our offense causing more pain then our defense.

I think it is wishful thinking for a lot of guys!

because people refuse to recognize the fact that the Steelers are the same Steelers that they are every single year. We are always competitive, always in the hunt, never have back to back losing seasons and have the greatest fan base in the history of pro-sports.

People refuse to believe it can last. Yet, here we are, years and years and years later still in the hunt, still fighting, still playing smash your face in football. And they just can't bring themselves to admit, they have had us wrong for 35 years.

But its cool. Let the fools talk and bob their heads. We are only trying to get our 19th North/Central title this season, only trying for our 7th AFC title and simply trying to get our 6th Ring.
