Default Steelers seem to be under the radar

Don't get me wrong they were pretty hyped with the stout defense that they have.

But, i have watched a lot of sport shows this today and none of the shows even talked about Pittsburgh. I understand that it was wild card and we didn't play but, I mean almost every reporter/writer keeps talking about the ravens. We beat them twice and they are saying that they have a great chance to go to the super bowl. I understand anything can happen but, it seems like they are counting out the steelers.

Good - glad to hear it. We seem to play better that way.

I think they're still just talking about the teams that played last weekend; I don't hear them talking about the Titans, Giants or Panthers either. However, if Tomlin can use the lack of media exposure as motivation, that's fine with me!

There's a Manning remaining in the playoffs.

Once he's out... there will be room for others.

True but it seems like they haven't even mentioned Steelers except when they say
"Chargers will go to Pittsburgh next week"

"Should they use Tomlinson or Sproles?"

When you look at it with an open mind, we deserve to be under radar somewhat. We barely beat the solid teams, and our offense has sputtered during most of game. Other people think Ben's "luck" at coming from behind will run out. My personal homer opinion is now the playoffs start and it doesn't matter what happened during regular season. We are capable of beating anyone, but unfortunately we could lose as well if Ben doesn't protect football. I think a different offensive team will show up, thanks to playoff experience for the whole team. Rivers will have to throw for 300 to beat us. I don't see it happening.

Hey - no pessimism this week, please?

Me likey the Steelers flying in under the radar. They were counted out in 2005 and we all know where that story ended.
