Default We're not underdogs anymore

I don't like it. We are ranked # 1 across the board ... Everywhere! I hope Tomlin can come up with some "chip on the shoulder" angle because we tend to play better that way.

How about the fact that technically we are Underdogs at home against Baltimore ? That's a chip right there.

The spread is Pittsburgh -1. So the #1 team on the power ranking at home against a #8 team is only favored by 1 point? There's still doubt nationwide regarding the Steelers.

it doesn't matter.. they were considered a top 5 team for pretty much the entire season in 2008. they know how to come in and play hard week in and week out.

The Steelers are only underdogs of the media. Every team in the NFL knows that the Steelers are a grind it out team just waiting to deliver a beating. Expect nothing less from a Steelers team ready to maim.

Yeah. This just about sums it up. I mean, it's easy for teams/players to play the verbal rhetoric game. Come game time, they know they're about to get punched in the mouth for 60 minutes. Defense and STs are both solid. This team has a swagger. Ben's return will only intensify what is.
