Default Boston Globe - In Pittsburgh, tradition is forged in steel

Very flattering column by Dan Schaugnessy with the Boston Globe

The Steelers are football.

The Steelers are the NFL.

And, naturally, the Steelers are good again.

The Patriots play the Steelers at Heinz Field tonight in a game that will tell New England fans exactly what kind of a team Bill Belichick has this year. As ever, when you want to measure your mettle in the NFL, you go to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers.


If you have been to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers, you know exactly what I am talking about. If you’ve never been, maybe you’ve picked it up just by watching on TV. Pittsburgh is simply the cradle of the NFL.

The Steelers are about continuity, excellence, toughness, and tradition. They are football’s comfort food. You see the logo on the right side of the helmet and you know you are watching the NFL at its best.

In New England, we like to talk about the Patriots being the team of the last decade and the team of the new century. The Steelers are simply the team for all time.

Interesting how a sportswriter from a city which has experienced a pretty successful decade in sports (two World Series wins/three Super Bowl wins) has no problem acknowledging the success of another franchise whereas the writers in Cleveland and Cincinnati (particularly Cincinnati) consistently bring the hate when writing about the Steelers

Yeah, I just read the article in my Boston Globe! Living here in Central Massachusetts, I am hoping for an epic smackdown in front of a national audience!!
Also hoping for no more injuries!!
