I agree, us life'ers has seen it time and time again.
The Steelers have never done shit when they were supposed to.
They love and thrive being counted out. Anyone remember us making a
fricking superbowl shuffel video? that was a great idea,a week later we
let the fricking cryboys walk all over us for the first half. That defense thought
all it had to do was show up. I love that we get no respect and have to earn it!!!

That sounds like a fair ranking considering we missed the playoffs last year (out of the top 12) and such a tumultuous offseason.

The rankings aren't predictions but starting points. They're just a reason for a people to talk football.

That seems fair. By the way, the Colts have been selected #1 more than any other team since the ESPN ratings started. One SUper Bowl to show for it.

Nothing wrong with the list IMHO. Givin' our off season woes and losing our QB for 4-6 weeks and a defense that blew leads late to the Browns, Chiefs and Raiders last season, I expect the critics to come down on us hard.

With that said, THIS is the Steelers team I love watching. Underdogs who noone gives us a chance to where we are out to prove. We field a team of NO BUMS. We return many starters and players who have been there done that who have dealt with these kinds of challenges.2 Super Bowls were won with virtually the same players that return, on top of guys like Randle EL, McFadden and Foote.

This team is full of veteran leadership to where we can get it done and make a push for a playoff birth.

Should make for the most interesting seasons in a long time.

Count us out people. We get the third place schedule this year (although last year's schedule seemed pretty sweet) so we don't have to play the top teams in the other divisions. We almost always play tough in the division (scratch that Cleveland game and the two Bengals games last year) so we usually end up over .500 in the division. It is a tough NFC schedule with New Orleans and Atlanta, but Tampa Bay and Carolina are not that great. I believe this defense will be back on all cylinders barring injuries so the NFL better look out for the Steelers.

I don't have a problem with us being ranked #19 but 5 of those teams above us will drop really fast after the first 4 weeks. the only one that counts at the end is who wins the SB. LOL
