According to this "expert" the Steelers will come in around 19th next year behind the likes of the Seahawks, Jets, Falcons Cowboys, Broncos, Titans, Bengals, Cardinals, Eagles, and Panthers… this "expert" has the Steelers sharing similar seasons with teams like the Colts and Vikings. It really bothers me that this guy actually gets paid to write garbage like this… Just thought you guys might find it interesting, maybe a little maddening like myself.
Just so you dont have to click this is what was said about the "trending downward Steelers" (that were AGAIN 12-4 last year)
Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers finished with the third best record in the AFC in 2011 but showed their age.
James Farrior, Troy Polamalu and Hines Ward are clearly not the players they once were, the offensive line was a mess, and injuries to Ben Roethlisberger, Casey Hampton and Rashard Mendenhall hampered the team down the stretch.
The Steelers are only getting older, and outside of a few positions (wide receiver, linebacker), it’s about time to start looking to refresh and upgrade the depth chart across the board.
Todd Haley is an interesting hire as the new offensive coordinator, and we’ll see how he gels with Big Ben.
