Thread: All signs point to a disappointing year for the Steelers

    Not that this guy is anybody of any relevance, but I hope that the media takes this view of the Steelers. I always prefer them as an underdog.

    ESPN, by measure of its NFL coverage, expects a Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos vs a Tim Tebow led New York Jets Super Bowl this season. The rest of the NFL will have to prove it on the field rather than in the media.

    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

And starting out in Denver- we have no Clark....Why can't Denver ever come to Pitt.?
    You are right. Everyone hear seems to forget (despite any silly rankings) our inability to stop the run when we want to (i.e. dictate). Losing Harrison does hurt that aspect; no question about that. I think Carter can bring a comparable level when it comes to pass-rush (I don't think Worilds is near 92 vs. run or pass), but losing Harrison means we're one Polamalu injury from being an average defense.

    I see possible upgrades on the Oline and Ben being protected. Rashard has been average at best. And the Steelers have one of the youngest Ds in the league (outside of Troy and James Harrison, that is). And a healthy Woodley, and a well positioned Timmons will make a difference.

    Of course, I am preaching to the choir here. But I see why you posted this article Hawaiian! haha!!!
    Typical naive, ignorant talking head. Over 90% of the football media is ignorant and they get paid to know this stuff? Unreal. But I like it. First of all, week 1 will NOT be the telling story to where Pgh is this season. Week 1 is almost meaningless. It's gonna be on the road, in prime time, with the return of Manning and we will be without our starting safety, at least, if not our all-world OLB. Losing week 1 will not be an indictment on our entire season. What matters is just keeping up, by in large, winning more than you lose and make to it Nov./Dec. and THEN get hot. Losing on the road week 1 to Manning in prime time hardly means your season is going to suck. Writers are so stupid.

    I think this article is full of wisdom, and terrific observations. I feel more intelligent having read it.
