Default Most popular negative rumors by the media about the Steelers

I'm trying to collect all of them. Both good and bad, for an article I am writing

Some examples are:

Green Bay's Passing Offense is so explosive, they will win the game for the Packers

The Steelers can't beat passing offenses - The Pats and Saints trounced them this year

The Pittsburgh O-Line is terrible and will be without their starting Center Pouncey

Aaron Rodgers is such a clutch QB w/ best postseason ratings ever!

I'm looking for all the popular talking points from all the talking heads on TV, who don't really know much about the Steelers but need something to talk about, so they say the most common things without knowing the facts. The general public (non-Pittsburgh) falls for this nonsense because they believe what they hear on TV.

So what else have you heard as reasoning why the Steelers are in trouble on Sunday?

Really, better than the Jets? I have not heard that one but I'll add it to the list! Thanks!

By the way, did you hear this from one of the so-called "experts" on ESPN or from someone local?

i forget who exactly but i read an article on nfl.com saying something like the green bay secondary being better or more talented than the jets, which is total BS. i doubt the jets would have gotten torched by caleb hanie and those slow wr's from chicago but w/e

whatever they can do to get a story i guess haha

troy is half a step slower, missing tackles, and will be hampered by his injury.

Good one.

And the other thing is, when has Rodgers even faced a good safety?

When he played Pit earlier, Troy was out. When he played Bal last year, Reed was out.

The only good safety he played was Darren Sharper back in 2008 with Minnesota, and Rodgers went 33/48, 320 yds, 1 TD in two games.

Is there any other good safety he's ever even faced?

Now that you mention it...none that I can think of. The Giants can maybe fit that category with Phillips and Rolle, but that's pushing it. They're good, but not elite. Also you have to take into account that when the Pack faced them their confidence was practically zero at that point, considering that was the game right after the collapse against the Eagles.

Is Steve Young going to be doing a pre-game show? Because if he is, I'm sure he's already written a 1,000-word speech on how Ben is the worst quarterback in the NFL and how he's just dripping with anticipation over the fact that Aaron Rodgers will throw for 600 yards and 8 touchdowns.


Oh, and... Green Bay lost to the Redskins. THE REDSKINS. I agree that they're a good team, but any team that can lose to Washington must have some issues.

Green Bay are hot and the hot team "always" wins the SB no matter how unfancied.

Pittsburgh were lucky to get here as the Jets put out all the real contenders (Colts / Pats)

The dome atmosphere will favour the Pack who will thrive on the good turf and passing conditions, and have more experience playing in domes (this is the #1 myth imho)
