    ...And I think it gives us a "rallying cry".... with our backs against the wall, us against the world, and all that stuff.... Yes, Ben had us competing. And you were right that ALOT went into that season, not just him.

    ...Look at it this way... When the talking heads spit out such dribble, it gives us something more to talk about on here....


    Great point, the last thing I want is the Steelers to become "media darlings". But, I will still roll my eyes when the media under cuts the Steelers. This is a bit of a catch-22 isn't it?

    This team is blue-collar and is not subject to the adoration of the media. We could never be the target of a media blitz the way the Pats were in 2007. We don't have a QB that dates super models and poses for "suspect" pictures. We don't have anybody that the media can spin a cool story about, at least nothing that the media would think interesting. Our team is about the team, not one attention starved team member. Part of being a Steeler is the anonymity that goes with just being a no-nonsense football player who lets their football playing do the talking.
