NFL analyst Mike Greenberg has stunned fans with his divisive view of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The 56-year-old ESPN host claims the Steelers are “maybe the worst team in the NFL.”
Greenberg made the comments during Monday’s edition of ESPN’s “Get Up.”
The panel evaluated NFL teams using a midseason report card.
Veteran analyst Greenberg was stunned that the Steelers had a winning record despite being defeated in every game.
He gasped: “They’re 5-3! They have been outscored in every game this season.”
“And they won five of them?! Talk about maximizing your abilities.”
“They did everything they could with what they had.
“They may be the worst team in the NFL and are 5-3.”
Greenberg’s opinion quickly quickly became knownwith one fan replying to X: “Definitely not the worst, but definitely the worst >.500 team.”

Another said: “He says that as a Jets fan.”
While a third added: “I hate Pittsburgh with all my heart and soul but their defense alone puts them in the top 16.”
And a fourth commented: “Maybe he’s not even wrong about the team being terrible.”
The Steelers defeated the Tennessee Titans on Sunday despite quarterback Kenny Pickett throwing for just 160 yards and 1 touchdown.
And Greenberg’s colleague Dan Graziano believes Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin is working “magic.”
He said: “It’s a magic trick. Mike Tomlin is a Hall of Fame coach.”
“If the Steelers ever got tired of him, teams would fire their coaches and line up to try to hire him.”
After winning three of their last four games, the Steelers face the Green Bay Packers (3-5) on Sunday.
