    Steelers voted most physical team !

    http://www.timesonline.com/site/news...d=478568&rfi=6

    According to a poll of 361 NFL players, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the overwhelming winners as the league's most painful and punishing team to play against.


    The poll, conducted by Sports Illustrated magazine, showed that 31 percent of the players surveyed tabbed the Steelers as the most physical team. A distant second were the Baltimore Ravens at 11 percent. The Chicago Bears were third with 8 percent of the vote.

    "That's sounds about right," said Steelers tight end Jerame Tuman, who wasn't one of the players who took part in the survey. "We've always prided ourselves on being a physical team. So has Baltimore."

    The Steelers (4-6) play the Ravens (8-2) at 1 p.m. Sunday in Baltimore.

    The 9-1 Indianapolis Colts _ who Steelers linebacker Joey Porter called a "finesse" team last year _ received just one vote.
    Hell yeah ! Regardless of the type of season we have or don't have everybody knows when you play the Black n Gold you're going to walk about Black n Blue !!

    I can't imagine it would be all that much different. We still come to play and play hard even if our record doesnt reflect it but yes it would be interesting to see indeed.

    Saw this today when I was reading SI (in the bathroom ) and having us and the Ravens at 1 and 2 shows why it's been such a good rivalry over the years.
