In case you hadn’t heard, the Steelers are the NFL’s latest and current great team. In some ways it is hard to argue that, given that they have won two Super Bowls since the Patriots won their last one. There are going to be plenty of articles written this offseason about the greatness of the Steelers, and as the the Champs, that is their due right.
Ron Borges has the Steelers already repeating next season and becoming the true team of the decade. Many are now also going to start comparing Ben Roethlisberger to Tom Brady, Christopher L. Gasper doesn’t make that exact comparison, but he does call him an “elite quarterback” because of this postseason success.
Mike Reiss says that the ending of the Super Bowl and the season was simply spectacular. Jonathan Comey isn’t quite ready to call this one the “greatest Super Bowl ever” though. Jim Donaldson says that once upon a time, defense won championships, he doesn’t think that is the case any longer.
After bouncing around the league for a few seasons, Julian Benbow says that Eddie House seems to have found a home in Boston. Steve Bulpett notes that confidence is the key to Glen Davis’ game. Mike Fine says that the Celtics need Leon Powe to step up his game right now. Robert Lee has the Celtics playing better now than during their 19 game winning streak earlier in the season.
