    Default Peter King on CRACK ?????????? Picks Steelers to win SB ???

    Need to check this out!

    Sports Illustrated's Peter King Picks Steelers to Win Super Bowl

    Steeler_tiny by maryrose on Aug 31, 2010 11:52 AM EDT Comment 0 comments


    Sports Illustrated's 2010 NFL preview issue hits newsstands tomorrow (featuring Mark Sanchez on the Northeast regional cover), and Peter King predicts the Steelers will beat the Packers , 33-27, to win Super Bowl XLV, according to Chris Mahr, publicist for SI.

    According to King, "The Steelers' MVP might be Roger Goodell. At press time it appeared likely the commissioner would reduce Roethlisberger's suspension from six games to four for good behavior-Roethlisberger spent the summer kissing babies and signing every autograph within miles at training camp. Byron Leftwich and/or Dennis Dixon should be able to navigate a friendly first-month schedule (Atlanta, at Tennessee, at Tampa Bay, Baltimore) and hand Roethlisberger a 3-1 team when he returns. A six-game suspension? That would be trouble, obviously."

    Steelers most likely have as good of a chance as anyone. Look around the league, there's some flaws with any team that could hold them back. There's some good things with teams that you'd think could be enough to help them prevail etc...

    I just don't like Peter King picking the Steelers

    This is my feeling exactly.

    Any of the top teams making it into the playoffs- have an excellent chance. The key, as always, is team health.

    If the Steelers can manage to stay healthy- there is not a team they can not beat... ok... well, New Orleans could give them problems- by putting up a bunch of points.... but other than that...

    well, the view through my homer glasses is - all clear.

    What I really like in the AFC-

    Cincy is going to implode.... just a matter of when.
    Balt- that secondary is going to be their downfall. They are already going to have everyone they play go 4 & 5 wide to take advantage of the backups that are starting- wait until they get a couple in-season injuries.
    NYJ- they have a boat load of talent. Lets see Sanchez do it in his second year- when teams have film on him.
    NE- maybe- difficult to rule out a Brady / Belichick team- but they are getting old.
    MIA- this could be a sleeper team in the AFC
    SD- Norv Turner
    Denver- nah
    Oak- I think they'll surprise some folks.
    Indy- hit Manning in the mouth and he folds like a cheap lawn chair.
    Hou- maybe. but they have been on the verge of maybe for 4 years...

    I picked the Steelers, and bet on it with $20... While completely sober...

    At 15-1 odds, I parlayed it with the division and conference titles so as to gain @ $600 if they win... Yea, it's a long shot... But I said the same thing back in '05 when I won $1,200...

    I think "on crack" is a bit harsh for a guy who is making an educated pick of our team to win it all. If that's how you feel, you probably should find something better to do with your Sundays. With the talent on this team, there is no reason that they can put together a run (seeing as how the majority of these guys have several postseason appearances under their belt, and know how to win). I'm pretty confident that this group can get it done (or at least go deep in the playoffs) if they can "weather" the Roethlisberger "storm."

    If King would've picked the Browns or KC to win, then "smoking crack" may be appropriate.

    Any team can win on any given Sunday.

    Talk about the kiss of death. This guy couldn't pick the winner in a one man race.

    I have the Steelers at 10-6 and sneaking into the playoffs. The big thing is getting through the first four games no worse than 2-2. With the horrible offseason Ben had, he is going to be more focused than ever to try and make people forget it. With him really getting into film study for the first time, he should get even better at reading defenses and find even more ways to exploit them. Ben makes up for lost time and reaches the AFCC Game. Further predictions withheld until week of AFCC.

    I wonder how Ben will approach remaining or getting in season shape ? I wonder if he would go as far as finding some semi pro team or players to interact with ? That would be lousy, Ben getting injured during his own workouts.

    I kind of look at Bens suspension as, what if this wasn't about being in trouble with the league , it could also have been an injury that costed him these 4 or 6 games. At this point we have a better time period to try and discover who is best suited to back him up. Wouldn't it be great if Goodell tells him 2 or 3 games will be enough ? I wonder if the Rooneys have any chips with Goodell they can call in ? Maybe the Rooneys can remind Goodell how they took the high road when they found out they were cheated by the Patricheats during their playoff appearances .

    Unfortunately, 10-6 will most likely "sneak" into the playoffs this year (given the parody/competition in the AFC). Last year, 10-6 won the North, and 9-7 was only good enough to get one other AFCN team in...although another 9-7 team (not named the Steelers or Bungles) ended up in the AFCC?...go figure?
