    NFL MVP - One and Done
    Rookie of the year - One and Done
    Coaches of the year (ATL & MIA) - One and done
    Comeback player of the year - One and Done
    AFC Pro Bowl QB's - Out of contention.

    Isn't it great to be 8-8? (Hey that rhymes) With no player accolades.

    I was just logging on to start the same thread. I was just thinking of it then heard that Harrison got DPOY award. Let's just hope that history repeats itself!:tup:

    I've noticed that a lot. I don't know if it's the pressure of having to live up to expectations once you've won those awards or waht. But for the most part, if a team is loaded with award winners it usually chokes.

    I know that the Steelers have the best defense in the league. With that said, I have a feeling that having to deal with Sproles for 4 quarters is going to test that defense a lot. If we can effectively sell the playaction we might be able to take some shots down field to VJ, Gates and Chambers.

    That's mostly because the media overhypes the awards and ignores the opposing team.

    That is just great, no one is giving us any credit!

    That way we can come underneath the radar!
