This is a team with an outstanding defense, a great running attack, a good offensive line, incredible depth at all positions, the best trio of recievers in the NFL, good special teams. Ben was just the icing on the cake. The biggest threat people have with the Steelers isn't the passing attack, its the defense. The next is the running game, the last is the passing attack. That's why the Patriots fell flat.. they have no secondary. That's why the Eagles did nothing, they only have a blitzing D and a passing attack. The reason the Steelers are doing so well is they are the best balanced team in the NFL.
I've never seen a Steeler team that played this well (Big Ben going to the pro bowl?). I'm excited that this is the best shot the Steelers have to going to the Superbowl since the 70s.
Oh, and people waiting for Ben to lose steam or whatever... umm... he's not slowing down... he's getting better each game. I didn't get to see much of today's game, but its the first game I've seen him slow down a bit.
Oh, and a couple of facts for the day:
There are 3 7-1 teams in the NFL. The Pats, The Iggles, and The Steelers. Wanna guess who's the best?
And, for you 'consecutive win' people... the Steelers won 7 in a row. The longest winning streak in the NFL atm....
Is it too early to say "The way to the Superbowl comes through Pittsburgh?" Probably, but that doesn't stop me...
