Full article: Steelers still not a sexy pick by John Harris of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
"We're not the fun team. We're not going to give you the headlines. I guess because of that, people don't respect us," Steelers free safety Ryan Clark said. "All we did was go 12-4 with supposedly one of the hardest schedules in a long time and won the Super Bowl."
Opinions were formed this offseason with players from opposing teams telling Clark the Steelers won't repeat.
"We don't have the Chad (Ochocincos) and Ray Lewises, the guys they say are superstars. James Harrison is the defensive MVP, but that's still not talked about. People still say it should have been (Dallas') DeMarcus Ware. I don't think they view our guys as stars," Clark said. "It's like no matter what a guy on this team accomplishes, it's always a negative.
"You don't read about us on Twitter. Nobody here tweeting about the (cafeteria) food. We're very uninteresting. It's the way we're built — we're built like the town we play in. We come to work every day and just carry our lunch pails. I think that's why people look at us and say we're not that good."
What the Steelers have done better than any team is win Super Bowls.
I'll trade a happy off-season and a new Lombardi Trophy for a leading headline on SportSCenter any day. Keep at it guys!
