Colin Cowherd Says Steelers Fans ‘Need To Grow Up’ While Explaining They’re Not Super Bowl Contenders

The Pittsburgh Steelers, albeit in ugly fashion, improved to 11-0 on Wednesday afternoon after knocking off the Baltimore Ravens 19-14. Despite the fact that they’ve been the only undefeated team left in the NFL for many weeks now, the consensus for most people out there that don’t own Terrible Towels is that this team actually isn’t all that good.

You can add Colin Cowherd to that camp of thinking Pittsburgh is an overrated team.

Cowherd went on a rather passionate rant about the Steelers while reflecting on their narrow win over Baltimore on Wednesday. Instead of focusing solely on the football team he decided to take a dig at Steelers fans saying they need to “grow up” and that they can go “cry in their terrible towels.”

“Pittsburgh Steelers fans, you need to grow up,” Cowherd said. “This is not a Super Bowl team. There it is. Go cry in your terrible towels. You’re 11-0 and it feels hollow. Own it. Pittsburgh is not a Super Bowl team. Own it. Pittsburg’s not a Super Bowl team

…Good God. You had the ball for 33 minutes and had to throw it 51 times to escape a Baltimore team using a backup quarterback.”

I for one love the simple “own it” statement he threw in there during the rant. What does that even mean? Why would Pittsburgh fans ‘own’ not being the best team in the league when their record says the Steelers absolutely are?

This isn’t like some POS car you can in fact own. People don’t have to own an opinion you’re throwing out there, good sir.

In my opinion, this Steelers team feels similar to last year’s Titans squad. They’re not the flashiest team, they’re not going to beat the hell out of teams, but they have that extra something to get the job done. The Titans were one win away from the Super Bowl last year and while I don’t think Pittsburgh will win the Super Bowl this season, a berth in the AFC Title game would be a successful campaign.
