Usually I think that internet polls with 35,000 respondents is fairly accurate. One extreme will usually balance out the other and you'll get a good picture of what everyone thinks.
But then again a lot of people hate the Steelers.....or love the Chiefs. Probably the latter but a poll on NFL.com shows a whopping 79% of voters think the Chiefs will defeat the Steelers. That's 35,718 votes as of this posting (Confession: I voted twice).
NFL Network had three folks make a pick. All three - Brian Baldinger, Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theismann - picked the Steelers.
10 point favorites? That's the smart move.
ESPN followed suit with all of the experts picking the Steelers.
I wonder why the Steelers aren't getting more votes. I had always figured they had one of the largest fanbases.
Maybe Steelers fans don't know how to use the computer....Zing! Just kidding....
