    We will have to get lucky and stay healthy. As bad as our luck was with injuries last year, maybe we get some good luck this year.

    They're definitely paper champions already. Most new fans here think the SB is in the bag. And then I always hear "unless the refs have something to do with it".

    Exactly - can't imagine any team should start too far off their draft position... If I'm the Ravens, i'm annoyed by 8th.

    The Ravens dropping kinda makes sense because they lost so many key players. We've lost as many players, so we should have probably dropped 7 spots too from our draft slot. That would put us at 24. And we did lose to the Raiders with a roster that had more talent than it does today. So I could be convinced that made sense.

    yup, right there with ya...

    Still, i would think that post-draft, I could see the Ravens getting a token move up... with their FA and draft, they've filled a lot of the holes, much as our Steelers have. Rounds 1-4 were Matt Elam, Arthur Brown, Brandon Williams, John Simon - many of our fans wanted those guys. Some mocks had the Ravens taking Arthur in the 1st...

    The team that should be mad is the 49ers. How the heck did they get leap frogged by Seattle? Whatever, I'm not going to be surprised if St Louis wins that division.

    I would have put us at 12, but 16 is fair. But, what I know is if this team stays healthy they will compete for another SB.

    Much like last year our defense will not be able to carry us through the season. It will be up and down so our entire season comes down to the O-line.

    Yep. I live up here too. You cant blame them for being excited, they have never won anything. I remind them that all of these big contracts that they are handing out will eventually catch up to them, as we Steelers fans are well aware of. They better win something in the short window they will have.
