Default Seven point favorites

it makes me nervous that right out of the box we are already 7 point favorites...i think we can win by seven, or even more, i just dont think we play good when we are overwhelming favorites, we always seem to play better as underdogs

Weren't we favored against the Chargers? And the Ravens?

I might've bought that "we don't play well as favorites" stuff when Cowher was still around, but it's a new era.

A 6-point spread is overwhelming? Last year's spread between the Pats* and Giants - THAT was overwhelming.

your right, i think the line last year opened at 14...im just not used to being the favorite, i kinda liked being the underdog...i can remember being in iraq during the last superbowl run and how proud i was for us to win week after week as the underdog
