Steelers have more players in place than the other teams. It's just hard to get to the superbowl, let alone win it. Of course playing in the NFC there is a better chance of going because of how pathetic the teams are, just winning it would be very tough. I can't see the niners or the cowboys beating any of the top AFC teams.
Seeing this thread reminds me of how much I hate each of these teams.
And as much as it pains me, I gotta say the 49ers will get there first. Dallas is held together by spit and bailing wire, Pittsburgh has serious problems, and SF is actually re-building and winning games in the process.
Well, during the middle of the season I would've said dallas...but now they look like a mess.
Steelers could be, but it all depends on what kind of coach tomlin is. They have alot of pieces already, it depends on if they can get some consistency out of big ben. He seems to play his best football when they keep his passes under 30(1 touchdown, 7 interceptions when he goes over). If they go back to running the ball and relying on that great defense, I think they can get it.
I think the niners have the next best chance. We're well coached, and just need a #1 wide receiver and for smith to mature. That defense, despite it's talent flaws, had an amazing turn around in the second half of last season...if we can get some talent in the front 7, I think we can be dangerous. Nolan seems to have a very good scheme for our secondary, despite what everyone here thinks, its not that bad. Our corners are not that bad. We had our 3 game losing streak when shawntae spencer was injured and had to rely on sammy davis(ask chargers fans about how bad he is). Walt harris was probably one of the better corners in the league this year(11 turnovers created and I know if someone looked up the stats, he probably only gave up 1-2 touchdowns).After the chicago game(when nolan decided to take over the defense since billy davis wasn't getting it done), we gave up ZERO 300 yard passers, and only 2 100 yard receivers, with a pretty abysmal pass rush.
Well, theres alot of factors in there, but I think...as of RIGHT NOW...the steelers have the best chance, followed by the niners and then cowboys. That's as unbiased as I can get, but I still voted for the niners lol.
Both Dallas and Pittsburgh will have new HCs. Could take some time for them to create a superbowl calibur team.
I don't see San Fran in a superbowl anytime soon either. There just isn't enough talent on that team. Gore completely carried that team this year. They arn't ready for a run.
So my answer is that there won't be one any time soon.
Defensively, yes...but offensively theres some talent growing here. If we keep norv turner, expect alex smith to have a break out year, vernon davis came on strong towards the end of the year...and our interior offensive line played incredibly well this year. Offensively, we're just missing a right tackle and a wide receiver, although vernon davis could make up. Defenses are easier to fix(especially when you have our cap), than offenses...so i'd say we're in pretty good shape.
