    Just as the title states. KC blew us out in week 2. Patriots have had our number. Also, we are too inconsistent. According to Sharpe, those are the reasons we are 3rd or 4th best.

    Your thoughts?

    You should never, ever put yourself in a position where you have to listen to Shannon Sharpe. But 3rd seems fair. KC beat us here and we never seem to beat the Pats.

    Sharpe has never said anything good about the Steelers. I think the Steelers have improved a lot since the Chiefs game, more than the Chiefs or Patriots have improved. At this moment it would be good evenly matched games with these two teams.

    At the moment I'd say Idiots, Chiefs, then about even with Steelers, Chargers and maybe Houston. I'm starting to get a feeling about this Steeler team, I'm sure that game last night has got me thinking with sugarplums dancing in my head.

    Love to see Sharpe and Chris Collingworthless do a Steelers game together like last night. It would kill them to give praise to the Steelers.

    not the same team that we were when we played KC so hard to say now but hard to argue. However, are you sure you heard him correctly? Perhaps he was saying that we were either a bird or boar.

    I was a bit pessimistic 2-3 weeks into the season, but I like the Steelers’ chances right now against any team.

    Collinsworth isn't nearly as bad as he used to be. He gives the Steelers a lot of credit when it's warranted.

    Anybody remember Dan Dierdorf back in the day? Boy did he downright hate the Steelers and didn't hide the fact during broadcasts.

    Houston is over rated just like the Panthers are, IMO

    Can we beat Jacksonville? They've had their issues, but thus as of late they've owned us.

    We will find out.

    There was actually a Fox NFL Special Sunday this past week that featured him and James Harrison.


    Shannon Sharpe grew up a Steelers fan. His mother was one too. Only time he was not a Steelers fan was on Sunday when he donned the black 'n' purple.

    As far as ex Bengals turned broadcasters, nobody hated the Steelers more than Bob Trumpy. I don't mind Collinsworth, I think he does a pretty good job, TBH. But, Shannon Sharpe is a mush mouthed buffoon.

    In all honestly who cares about Shannon Sharpe. He runs his mouth nonstop on that TV show. Drinking and smoking while he does it.

    I think we are the playing really good right now and have won five games in a row. That said until we beat the Patriots they are the better team. Not in talent, but they for some reason they have our number. So until we beat them they’re the number one team in the AFC. They’ve also beat the Chiefs too. Who have the best record in the AFC.

    We’ve been in every game this year even the Chiefs game. The only game that got away from us was the first Ravens game. So I think we can play with anyone, but we have to beat them first before I say were the number one team in the AFC.

    He’s just a guy in a suit that gets paid to give his opinion-like everyone on these forums-minus the $ and suit.

    1. I don't care what his opinion is
    2. Nobody's opinions of our ranking will actually affect the outcome of games
    3. Until we beat the Saints, Rams, Pats or Chiefs, we will be no better than 5th best in the league and 3rd best in the AFC. That's just the way it is .

    NO, I am right there with you. Sharpe is just another knucklehead that has no business being on anyone's t'v screen or taken seriously. .
