The Pittsburgh Steelers have been perennial powers. Pushing the limits of the teams in their own division, the conference, and an unprecedented six times, the limits of the entire league.
So why is it so common at the beginning of every season for the so called "experts" and analysts to overlook the Steelers and what they are capable of, as if their Superbowl win was some sort of fluke?
They may include us with the top teams, but only hint toward any real possibilities for us. It is something I feel we have grown accustomed to, and ultimately enjoy. We love being underestimated and proving otherwise.
Every Pittsburgh fan knows what the Steelers are capable of: A seventh Super Bowl in 2009. Every season, it seems we have the talent to make a run to the big show and deliver once we are there. And this year is no different. In fact, after winning it all last year, we have come to expect it...Dreams of another Superbowl season.
But what would happen if that dream was to become a nightmare?
Going into this season, we had a few needs to address. Did we address them? I feel we did a fine job of adding some depth to several areas during the draft and via free agency. Also noted is the fact that we only lost a few players and almost all of our team is intact. We had and still have the No. 1 rated defense in the NFL and a much-improved offensive line.
My question to you is, do you think we did enough? What do you feel was the area of most concern going into this seasons draft and why?
No. 1- Our offensive line...or
No. 2- Our defensive line
