    The ESPN "experts" (and I use that term as loosely as possible) are going to explain why the Steelers are better than the Pats. I can't WAIT to hear this.

    Why wait. We all know exactly what they'll say.

    Patriots have been very susceptable to a power running game.

    Steelers have a lot of team speed.

    Steelers will put pressure on Brady like he's never seen before. Although he's played that personnell and Lebeau's D how many times?

    Steelers will be VERY physical with the Pats receivers.

    Mike Tomlin has these guys playing at a very high level. Mike Tomlin is possibly the best coach in the league...

    BLAH BLAH BLAH

    Oh I almost forgot.

    Ben Rothlisberger has really matured as a QB. You've got to consider him as one of the top 2-3 QB's in the league.

    Put yourself in their shoes. It's either that, or report on the current effort to polish the Lombardi trophy so it looks good for Mr. Kraft in February.

    You do want people watching you this season, right? They have to do something to keep interest up....

    That's Merrill "I hate everything Patriots because I used to play for the Steelers and HOW DARE THEY THREATEN TO ECCLIPSE OUR 1970s DYNASTY" Hoge? :D

    BTW the Steelers strength of schedule ranks 31 out of 32. (Per Sagarin's formula)

    Yeah the Steelers beating two teams with a winning record this year (Bills/Browns) is really impressive.

    I'd be very surprised that anyone other the concussion boy Hoge will be saying this.

    Yep .. I was right.

    Credibility isn't important to Hoge.

    According to Hoge, the Patriots aren't number one because they "didn't look that great against the Colts." As opposed to the Steelers looking phenomenal against the 5-4 Browns. He's such a ******* numbnut. Last week he was saying the Patriots were going undefeated, and now he thinks the Steelers are going to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl?

    Honestly. Allowing personal biases to affect you so much that you rank a team that lost to the fuggin' CARDINALS ahead of a team that is playing historically well should be a fireable offense.

    Funny just as I read this, the Big Show guys just reported this and are making him look like an idiot.

    This is why I hate polling in college football... people are morons and whenever a dominant team takes a week off, those aforementioned morons forget that they exist.

    he does this just to entertain conversation and debate. this is ESPN's way of generating more viewership. Last week he had the colts # 1 after they lost to the pats. iam not sure he believes it either. its their show producers who seem to force such things.

    2. Packers
    3. Cowboys
    4. Steelers
    5. Colts

    I like the Packers more than most and think they'll take it to the Cowboys when they meet. Steelers are overrated, and the Colts are playing like trash right NOW, which is the most important piece to the power rankings.

    Did they just say that Vinatieri hadn't missed two field goals in a game since 2001? Did anyone else hear that?
