Time to Acknowledge That Steelers Are Back

By Tony Moss, NFL Editor
(Sports Network) - Run the football. Play great defense. Win.

Three tenets that have long been synonymous with the Pittsburgh Steelers, or more accurately, the Pittsburgh Steelers when the Pittsburgh Steelers have been good.

And this year's edition of the black and gold, which moved to 3-0 with a 37-16 cold-cocking of the previously unbeaten San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, are clearly very good...

I'm s lucky guy. I've been a Steeler fan forever and on Saturdays I walk three blocks from my house and watch the best Division 3 football team in history.

Yeah, that's a great story--some of things that Tony Moss said later in that story that I LOVED:

So good that they've now humbled the first three opponents of the Mike Tomlin era by a composite score of 97-26, which no matter the collection of foes, you don't do in today's NFL without being strong to your core. (Very well said!)


The Steelers are No. 1 in the league in rushing offense (198.3 yards per game) as Week 3 begins, and are almost 25 yards per game better than any other NFL team in that category.

A defense? The Steelers have surrendered just 26 points through three games, nine games better than anyone else in the NFL, including those media-lauded New England Patriots.

Of the six running backs named to the Pro Bowl this past February, you will find exactly one - Willie Parker - achieving anything close to his heroic pace of last season.


... Parker, who leads the NFL with 368 yards, has six 100-yard games in his last seven appearances dating back to last season, and is averaging an impressive five yards per rush.

...Steelers are 3-0 for the first time since 1992 ... But you have to go back much further to find the 4-0 start that Tomlin and company will be trying to match on Sunday in Arizona.

It was 1979 when the Steelers last led with four victories, (they won the Super Bowl that year) and last 5-0 start came in 1978, when they opened with seven straight wins en route to a 14-2 finish and Super Bowl win.

Seems to be a pattern--going 4-0 or better both those times led to a Super Bowl win...so perhaps we're onto something great here :D

It may look stupid but it's great fun watching talented guys that happen to be to small for big time college playing the game they love.
One other fact that wasn't mentioned in the story is how the second and third team players are ordered not to score TD late in the game. There has been four times this year that they've kicked field goals on first down.
Of course you know that it's early in the season and it becomes more exciting when the top rated meet in the OAC League games then if your lucky you have the play off for the National Champship.
