Angry Dropped to 12th from 4th in Power Rankings

I know this is only one person's (idiot) opinion but are you kidding me?????? We have a better record than some of the ones ahead of us!!!!

1. Titans
2. Giants (ok, I get this one)
3. Panthers
4. Bucs
5. Redskins (WTF???)
6. Patriots
7. Jets
8. Cardinals
9. Dallas
10. Falcons
11. Colts
12. STEELERS
13. Ratbirds

Even raven fans posted and said that despite how much it pains them the Steelers should NOT have dropped that far!!!!

Hope that doesn't hurt our BCS bid. Power rankings are meaningless.

Not really. There seems to be a parallel between the play on the field and our power rankings...they get a high power ranking and we blow a game. They drop off the radar and it's lights out....I'll take the low power rankings every week!

i have no problems with it. right now we dont deserve to be higher.

records mean nothing

out of 9 games played so far, we are 2-3 against current or potential playoff teams.

5 out of our last 7 games are against current playoff teams (including chargers who can esily win division).

we will just have to prove it on the field that we deserve higher

Lose at home to a team you should beat, your power rankings drop. bottom line.

Don't care, this week, Chargers, we need smash in their skulls then we can look at the new power rankings.

Something fishy?

ESPN = 4th
Dr. Z = 4th
Fox Sports = 3rd
NBC Sports = 8th
CBS Sportsline = 12th??

I'll be there Sunday to witness the thrashing of the team from San Diego! Hope it snows!

usually we probally get way too much love on those power rankings - just so many steelers fans out there. until we start playing better football i agree with the fact that overall we are medicore team being carried by the defense.
