It posted this on MGP, too. Thought I'd paste here as well, though I bet it's already been covered:
From the PG:
Many Steelers said they have no problem preparing for these next two games, even though they are prohibitive favorites. As coach Mike Tomlin said, "The Jets are dangerous because they are an NFL football team."
Linebacker Larry Foote was the most forthcoming about the task ahead as opposed to, say, the one they will face Dec. 9 in New England.
"It ain't the same feeling, I'm not going to lie to you,'' Foote said. "It's not like you're going against one of the top teams. But any team can beat you, you know that."
BUT any team can beat you? If you've got to throw a "but" in there, what were you saying before the "but?" Do Belicheat's players ever talk like that? You can say until you're blue in the face that you're not taking them lightly, but you're done at "it ain't the same feeling."
And he's a leader in the locker room, too. They took the Jets lightly. Period. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07322/834897-66.stm
