If you ask the normal fan who they think is going to win the AFC North, some might answer the Baltimore Ravens out of habit and others might say the Cincinnati Bengals. Very few are picking the Pittsburgh Steelers after a 8-8 season last year. Defensive end Brett Keisel, however, believes that the team can get back to the Super Bowl.
Through Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Keisel talks about what the team has to do to get back to the Super Bowl.
People can say and believe what they want to believe. But in this locker room we feel we have the team and the talent to get back and our first goal is to get back and win our division. Good things have happened around here when we won our division . . . that’s our mentality.
A lot of the national media is sleeping on the Steelers this season. Ben Roethlisberger as your starting quarterback always gives your team a chance to compete. In today’s NFL as long as you have an elite quarterback all you have to do is give him the necessary weapons. Though the team did loose Mike Wallace in free agency, Roethlisberger still has Emmanuel Sanders, Antonio Brown, and Plaxico Burress to throw the ball to. If the team can get a running game going, the Steelers have a great chance to win the wide open AFC North.
