The fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense only converts 29% of their third downs, while their defense allows opponents to convert third downs at a 44% clip, should slow up the faction of fans voicing their displeasure with the FOX rankings. Still, the Steelers have been very good at keeping opponents out of the end zone, but like Dick LeBeau is fond of saying: "Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you."
If things don't change in Pittsburgh, we could have a whole other "The Edge" situation on our hands.
