There has been talk even before the win last Sunday about the Super Bowl champion Steelers being a “dynasty.” The team has won two titles in the past four seasons, and have the foundation to be good for sometime to come. Today though, one of the player that the Steelers topped in the Super Bowl – Kurt Warner, brushed off those comments that the Steelers are a dynasty in the making. Here is the report on some of those thoughts from today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The Super Bowl champion Steelers have no problem using the word “dynasty” when referring to their storied franchise and record six titles. “We’ve got a new saying, ‘Welcome to Sixburgh,'” Steelers linebacker James Farrior said after Pro Bowl practice Thursday. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, on the other hand, isn’t as fast to use the D-word when referring to the Steelers, even though he acknowledges their excellence.
“I think dynasty is such a hard word in this day and age because when you think of dynasty, you think of dominance over everybody else,” Warner said. “Maybe dynasty in games won or titles won, but I think there’s just great parity around this league.” As an example of the balance in the NFL today, Warner pointed to the start of the playoffs where he said no one had any idea who would be in the Super Bowl.
