Default Pittsburgh Has No Rivalries per Colin Cowherd ESPN

He maintains that unless every Steeler fan says the Browns are our rivalry or the Bengals or the Ravens or another team. We have none. He says all fans must feel a team is a rivalry.

I still say the Browns :)

We are in a division with the best rivalies!

Steelers vs Browns (best one, just ask the players)
Browns vs Ravens (battle of old browns)
Browns vs Bengals (battle of ohio)
Steelers vs Bengals (starting to be a rivalry due to Porter and Johnson)
Steelers and Ravens (battle of the top 2 teams for awhile recently)

The Clowns have become the irrelevant them, but that doesn't they will stay in the basement or that the historical rivalry is dead. Just look at the way the Clowns fans obsess over the Steelers. I think that Baltimore has been our strongest rival over the past few years, if you look at the way we have traded the division title back and forth and the animosity between the players on the field.

Do you have the link to this article?

To me it simply means that times change and as younger fans join the fanbase, they pick up "new rivals." I can clearly remember the Raider/Steeler games, that was just really something. Today in professional sports this Colin guy maintains there ae no rivalries in football or any other sport other than baseball. He says that in COLLEGE football the only real rivalry is Michigan/OSU.
He says that when Michigan plays OSU he would not miss that game although he does not live in Michigan or Ohio, he will not miss that game.

He says the 2 factors to take into consideration are:

#1 stakes
#2 national relevance

I agree with some of what he says but definitely not everything.

I second that. I put him in the same realm with Skip Bayless.
