Unhappy SI's photos "AFC North: Impact Newcomers"

What would be your guess on why SI didn't include nobody from the Steelers on their AFC North: Impact Newcomers photos? As usual, I was looking for some nice photos and brief news on the Steelers, and when I found this I was as so disappointed.

BTW, I don't think this was posted here, if it's here you guys can delete it.

I love that the media doenst pay much attention to us. We do well with the underdog thing. Besides that if the media did fall in love with us would you really like? I would get sick of us really quickly!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Our biggest free agent pickup was Ryan Clark--very good player, but not a superstar. Our draft picks are more for the long term than for immediate impact.
I'm willing to bet Clark has a greater impact than Anthony freakin Wright....or Sam Adams....LOL...and DEFINITELY more than Lecharles Bentley....

We let's see. One of the ten is already done for the season. And it's very hard for me to believe that Willie Mac will have much of impact playing 2 plays a game with his walker.

Out of these "Impact" players I might take three and all three have a caveat...Jurevicius (who has never had more than 700 yards in a season) Pryce (who, though is still good, is on the downside of his career) and Anderson (who will probably be misused by the Ravens)

Everyone else flls into one of these categories.

Geriatric: Mcnair, Adams, McGinest
Wont play: Bentley
Overrated: Jackson & Wright (If Wright IS rated...he is overrated)
Never has played: Ngata (the token "lets pull a rookie out of the hat" pick)

90% of the folks in this forum could make a better "Impact" list...
