They were going to beat us with Roethlisberger in there eventually. I hate it but better early in the season then late or in the playoffs. Just gotta rebound and play well the rest of the way. I'm worried but not in panic mode.

still no pressure ...give Flacco a chair so his legs don't get tired while waiting for someone to get open

GMU Steeler
09-11-2011, 02:22 PM
The most annoying part is their fans and players are going to act like they just won the damn super bowl. They've played great but I hope this game gets to their heads and their egos get the better of them.

Troy really went after Ray Rice. Flacco is finally sacked.

As of right now, 9/11 will be remembered in Pittsburgh as the worst gameday in ages. It's just terrible to watch this.

Finally someone sacked Flacco! Their fans and players deserve to be acting this way. We suck today. If it were the other way around, we'd be pumped too. This IS the most hated rivalry.

NYC_Steeler
09-11-2011, 02:25 PM
Damn - Brown should've kept running left instead of going back to the middle on that return. Oh well. Let'see if the O wakes up or if it's 3 and out.

Troy really went after Ray Rice. Flacco is finally sacked.

Do the Steelers have 3 days to recind Troys contract?

$10 million for this performance??? 2 tackles and 2 fights.

Chadmagic
09-11-2011, 02:25 PM
From horrible play calling, to even worse play on the field. We got what we deserved today. a good old fashioned butt kicking.
I hope someone loses a job or three and that a lot of our players get punished for it this week. Its like they played good until they got signed then just gaive up. "I gots mines money"

7 turnovers for 38 points in our last two games, but it's all Gay and Mcfadden;s fault

Geez - 4 man rush and they almost got to Ben. Terrible.

09-11-2011, 02:28 PM
Oh wow... we'd probably be better off tonight with Charlie Batch, I never thought I'd actually say this.

Chadmagic
09-11-2011, 02:28 PM
In the preseason I saw some great designed rollouts for Roethlesburger to avoid pressure. None of that today. I just don't get it.

How come other teams, when they're down this far, start passing right down the field.....yet Ben throughs incompletes...

rocckbottomxmen
09-11-2011, 02:28 PM
I stand by my post that we will be 15 and 1. But I want to go on record and say this. And I do not care who gets mad. I love D Lebeau, but I sure hope this is his last year if he refuses to change things up. There is no way the ravens should have done what they did on offense against our D

yes our offense stunk in this game and some of the onus should be on the d players but our scheme does not work against passing teams with good te's

NYC_Steeler
09-11-2011, 02:29 PM
WALLACE!!! Nice catch and run.

I'm not sure why we forget to come play today. After all the smack talk we can't back it up. Hopefully when we play these death birds again in playoffs we man handle them like they did us today.

First time logging on, so excuse me if someone already mentioned this, but why haven't we BEEN in a hurry up offense. Show some sense of urgency and preparedness.

GMU Steeler

Well I am glad I have Wallace on my fantasy team. Gotta change my jersey, t-shirt, and hat combination and see if that works any. Yeah it's dumb superstition.

Ed Reed.

NYC_Steeler
09-11-2011, 02:34 PM
This is just so surreal - I never believed this team could play so badly and Ben play so stupidly - how in the hell do you throw another interception exactly the same way, to the same spot, to the same player? How far up does Ben have his head in his ass? Time to put in Batch or Dixon. Game over.

I didn't understand that either. We're down 32-7...the clock is running...and not only was Ben sitting back there taking the count snap, but he WAITED until it almost got down to zero before taking it. WTF.

It's a rare day when the whole team whiffs - I suppose Sepulveda's punting has been OK.....but this really has been garbage.

It's not his fault Ben keeps throwing picks - that's not part of the gameplan.

Atlanta Dan

Worst game of the Tomlin era - stuff happens

I will start to worry if they have another performance like this in the next six games

fortmemphis
09-11-2011, 02:36 PM
how many stupid arse throws is Ben going to make today? Yes, we are going to lose, but we cant keep giving the ball back to them every damn drive. I am sick of Ed Reed just happening to be there when Ben throws it right to him. Anybody on the defense could catch what Ben is throwing. Now we have to listen to how awesome Reed is. This is sickening.

I really hope this isnt reoccuring, this is absolute garbage today. I've never hated the ravens more than I do today and I'm really wishing injury on ed reed. I cannot stand him.

SteelMusic
09-11-2011, 02:37 PM
This will be a big test for Mike Tomlin. Bouncing back after getting embarrassed by the Raves like this won't be easy. Mainly because the team just wasn't prepared to play today on either side of the ball.

TRH
09-11-2011, 02:38 PM
I normally think Simms is an OK play caller and has interesting points, but man, he's going to have an on-air-orgasm rooting so hard for Baltimore and so hard against Pittsburgh. Wow.

mike wallace, dan sepulveda. everyone else is sucking a big donkey penis right now

and our defense. nice to know we just blew mega bucks on timmons and polamalu who did nothing. i know no ones perfect, but we pay those guys the money we pay them to step up in big games, which they failed at today.

Rick5895
09-11-2011, 02:38 PM
After today, we as fans should put this mess to bed and move on. We get the seabags next week and start our march to the division title.

Just like Flacco was destined to beat Ben eventually, I feel Ben is destined to beat brady and this yr is the yr. You will never see the STeelers play this way again

Ed Reed is a punk who is being made to look like the greatest safety in the history of the game because Ben seems to want to keep throwing it DIRECTLY to him.

He actually defended Flacco and made a good argument for him/Ravens this week on Inside the NFL. Looks like he's smarter than we thought.

Chadmagic

It's not his fault Ben keeps throwing picks - that's not part of the gameplan.

But poor play calling is his fault and a lot of the pics are due to poor play calling against this defense. Wrong call for the defense thats in front of him. also its his job to shore up the o-line in the off season. None of that happened this offseason. Still the same holes and defenses are still exploiting them.

Yeah, he's gonna be acting like they're awesome and we suck and how this win means more than the year we beat them thrice because the dude was crowing about 2006 and how the "Ravens taught hte Steelers some humility" which was a funny statement since the Steelers were already struggling in 2006 before that game happened but it is what is. We've stunk today and the Ravens have been the better team. This was going to happen eventually though. Flacco wasn't always going to be the Steelers biatch. Just gotta rebound and beat them next time and regroup.

Sadly I don't see this getting better. We still have the same glaring holes on offense and defense and the Ravens exploited them by matching key players to those positions. Just like the superbowl. We did nothing in the offseason to fix the problems so teams will continue to do this.

So I think it will get worse before it gets better

What I can't understand is why Flacco is still in the game - that coach has to be the stupidest person on the face of the earth. A blowout and he leaves his starter in. No sense.

Why was Ben still in there?

Harbaugh wants to embarrass us any way he can I guess. Hate that guy, he's a jerk.

Helmet to Flacco's arm or ribs and the Ravens season will go downhill fast and Harbaugh will be crucified and tarred and feathered.

Because Tomlin is a moron.

WTF - close to Ben injuring his arm

Glad to see Harbaugh was throwing there - Tomlin will file away Harbaugh's actions here - 2 point conversion up 27-7/going on 4th and 1/throwing when up 32-7 for the rest of the time they are both HCs

I hate to see Steeler fans complaining about running up the score. Thought we were better competitors than that. Stop whining. Respect the score. We're not a bunch of wusses. Need I say, "Man up?"

What's Ben's QB rating - like 10 or something?

You don't think they need the practice?????

Maybe if they had played a few more downs in pre-season they wouldn't have sucked so bad today...You just never know.

2 out of bounds passes from Ben so far. That rating just keeps dropping...

Sadly I don't see this getting better. We still have the same glaring holes on offense and defense and the Ravens exploited them by matching key players to those positions. Just like the superbowl. We did nothing in the offseason to fix the problems so teams will continue to do this.

So I think it will get worse before it gets better

QFT! The only thing we have is a HUGE amount of talent on our offense. What concerns me is who is in charge of getting this offense not just ready to play, but ready to play to the potential of the talent we have. Our key players on D are aging and that is a fact. Our offense is stuffed with young talent. Tomlin needs to do what he has to do to get this team playing to it's full potential.:tt04:

Man the Ravens came to play. They look really good. Hate saying that because I can't stand these guys. I am really hoping this game leaves a mark and the team learns from it.

I can even take getting beat by them because they are a good team, maybe better than I thought. I just hope they show some class. I dont like when Hines Ward rubs his success in the face of our opponents and I hate when the Ravens act like punks. Suggs and Reed are the worst at that.

Hard not to run up the score when the Steelers are playing so poorly. Waht should the Ravens do, take it to the 1 yd line and qiut like the Steelers have done?

If you are gonna lose, you might as well lose in spectacular fashion! and we did that today! We were the best losers we could be!

Our most enthusiastic play was a fight! hahahaha

Everyone needs a good talking to this week. Coaches and players alike! Success starts at the top as well as failure. Our coaches looked lazy on the sidelines and our players passed that onto the field. I hope it gets better next week

Well, it counts as only 1 loss and it was at Baltimore. They HAD to win. They couldnt lose at home against us to start off the season. I'm sure a lot of us thought the Ravens would most likely win, but its just that no one could see the blowout coming.

We will see what Tomlin and the team are made of next week. The Ravens have to come to Pitt. later this year.

Just heard an accurate quote from Suggs. He said Ben is a great quarterback and "God can have his soul, but his ass belongs to me." Nuff said.

Huge talent? Like who?
We have one good o-lineman and that is Pouncey. He can't block everyone.
We have good receivers, but they can't catch passes if Ben is on his @ass or being hit all the time.

We have to plug the line. We didn't do that in the offseason. The Ravens front 4 on D exploited it as well as the D of Packers in the superbowl. If any teams watches tape of those 2 games they will shift some of their best D line around to take advantage of it too. Which spells a looong season of losing.

Once a weakness is exposed, good teams will take advantage of it. Bad teams won't and we will beat them. But good teams will. Teams like the Ravens, and the Patriots, and the Packers. Thats why we keep losing to the same teams all the time. They exploit our o-line and take shots on us down the field on defense.

Now that more teams are talented than last year, we can expect more and more teams to beat us.

Will somebody please check and make sure Hines Ward is ok?

He was demolished coming across the middle.

Perhaps he should put his dancing shoes back on and do what he does best.
