Yes, this was one good thing about the Ravens winning. Maybe it will STFU the arrogant fat cats on the Steelers.

The Steelers are the third best team in the division and need to stop thinking they will win by simply showing up.

Not only won one, but got named MVP to boot.

A whole hearted fuck you to the Overpaid WoodenDong and a big F U to the Fatcat Steelers.

If this does not motivate the team, they are hopeless. The Steelers could learn a lot by studying the Ravens play football. Those guys played like they wanted to win. Sheer willpower goes a long way.

The funny thing is, we didn't even have a losing season. :sofunny:

Cheer up. It's not that you CAN'T bitch and moan, it's that you can't do it CONSTANTLY. Same old people bitching about the same old shit and topics start getting closed. When the Steelers are winning games, those who bitch when their losing don't even show up. Why?

They like to bitch and moan.

Some arguments and discussions involving the Steelers and their struggles are relative, and they won't suffer the same fate as others. But most of the time, it's the same subject, and it's the same subject matter, and we get rid of it.

I happen to believe this subject is worth discussing. Woodley opened his mouth and now he looks stupid, although I wouldn't say that Flacco WON that Super Bowl. I'd say the RAVENS won that Super Bowl, don't you agree?

He said flacco will never even make a superbowl because they would have to go through the Steelers

oops again

Flacco did his part and thats anyone can ask of him, Woodley looks like an idiot right now. Hopefully this motivates him to lose 30 pounds. Watch 2008 the superbowl again and look at how much thinner woodley used to be

I can think of many players that mean more to the Ravens, but Ray Rice certainly didn't win that Super Bowl for them, and honestly, Flacco showed up, Rice didn't.

What did Rice have --- 59 yards and a fumble? No touchdowns?

:sofunny:

Give Flacco the 100 Million. I don't think he's consistent enough to make it a worthy price, but when it matters the most, Flacco did more for the offense than Rice did with his fumbles and 60 yards.

Flacco's passing game is like a long distance Basketball passing game. It's crazy. Not sure how long that will last. Receiver runs to a predertermined spot and outjumps smaller DB for the pass which is thrown to give Flacco credit accurately to only a spot the outstretched arms of the receiver can grab it and most often when the DB has his head turned away from the ball, just like in Basketball. And they run these plays all the time. Did San Fran even study tape on these guys?

and what the Steelers have to fix to win another one?

Alot of people thought what Woodley said. I was one of them. That being said it was a team effort and honestly i thought Flacco winning the MVP was a joke. That superbowl and playoff effort by the Ravens was a clear example of the rest of the team elevating their play. I give credit for Flacco playing mistake free football but really, he did not do anything special.

I can't stand the Ravens as much as the next devoted Steelers fan. But, c'mon people. Flacco played great for 4 straight games and, that's all it took. If anyone else was to win the MVP, it should be Boldin.

I'm not big on Flacco at all and wouldn't take him over Ben. I think he walks around with an unearned sense of accomplishment, even before the SB victory and MVP - and is pretty smug like one Aaron Rogers. If you're not a little cocky as an NFL player, you probably shouldn't be playing at this level though. Aaron Rogers has come down to earth since their XLV victory and I believe Flacco will too. People will figure out how to out-physical their receivers much like we did against the Patriots - that style isn't consistent enough to work over a long period of time. Don't be shocked to see the Ravens win 1 more SB with Flacco though - he is good enough to put them over the top.

Let's take the blind homer glasses off and re-realize there are 31 other teams.

Now, onto Woodley and the Steelers. They are exactly in the "Rocky III" scenario. They need to get back "the eye of the tiger, the edge . . . " They need speed and the element of surprise in a big, big way.

Wilson would be in might top 3 to build the franchise around - not Kaep - I think he is a fad that teams will figure out. Wilson has all the makings of a student of the game - Kaep doesn't strike me as that anyways - seems more of a physical specimen that will erode over time and maybe even quicker than the one we have under center currently.

I would still take Eli. Flacco was fair and inconsistent during the season. He got very hot at the right time. He also got help from the dominant play of Bouldin and a break out season by Jones....plus some very timely breakdowns by opposing D's. The stars aligned for Flacco over the last 4 weeks. This is woulda, coulda, shoulda but if the Broncos don't flat out give that game away then everyone is talking about the same old Flacco. But that is the nature of the NFL. The best thing Joe did is avoid that killer turnover. Do I think he can pull off another run that clean? Nope. It's one of those things that happens for a player/team sometimes. You gotta remember, the Ravens have been a very good team who made the playoffs for 5 straight years. The odds were in their favor to get one.

Agree completely. flacco as someone else here has said, played mistake free. But in the Bronco game it was a hail mary, jump ball pass to jones. In the super bowl there was a hail mary, jump ball pass to boldin. Also, a horrific defensive play to let jones get 10 yds. behind the d and all he had to do was get the ball there. I don't think I am being unfair when I say that I saw nothing special about the ravens offense in this game. Their first td came from having a short field and a penalty on the Niner's on 3rd down. I will say that the o line played well protecting flacco.

RE: Raven Oline

Anybody notice that they played their guards back 1 yard ( ok sometimes they were two yards off the line of scrimage, but let that's another rant) off the line of scrimage as well as their tackles?

That greatly allowed guards get better angles on the zone blocking schemes, and pretty much eliminated any inside presure up the gut. Very inovative. Hats off to the Ravens coaching staff for this adjustment.

Flacco's reply: "Woodley will not miss a meal in his lifetime"

C'mon....11 TD's and no picks on the way to winning the SB can't be dissed.
He did it....you can't diminish it. Was he lucky as hell in Denver? You bet he was.
Lady Luck shows up in these games (see our 1972 win over the Raiders).
Despite the good luck Flacco had a lot to do with them winning.

As someone mentioned above, Flacco's long ball is better than Ben's.

Maybe the Steelers are a wildcard, maybe they don't make the playoffs, or maybe they win the division. The AFC North, the best division in football, is going to be in a state of flux next year. Sure, the Ravens won the Superbowl and were the best team this year, but this is going to be a brutal offseason for them. The Steelers have moves to make too. Then there's the improving Bengals. Who knows what'll happen.

Not sure if you have kids... but, sometimes, in order not to get into trouble, they will play the semantics game. (If you are married, then more than likely, you have played this game with your spouse, as well.)

People just do not like to admit when they are wrong/made a mistake.

Very few people have the wherewithal to simply admit fault.

Make sense?

This reminds me of a story about Michael Irvin, back in the 90s.

I despised Irvin. I thought that hew as cocky & arrogant & an ass... until the following occurred.

Before a big game against the Niners (the NFCCG???), Irvin told reporters, "I am the best WR in football... the best... PERIOD." Then, during the game, Jerry Rice did his thing, and looked great in victory. After the game, a savvy reporter asked Irvin about his comments, and without missing a beat, Irvin replied, "Jerry Rice is the best WR in football... the best... PERIOD."

Since that day, I have respected Irvin... for his ability to admit fault (and, cleverly, to boot).

Don't push it. A couple people might say that, but the vast majority of Steeler fans would not.

Next year is next year....you haven't experienced how hard it is the season after a Super Bowl Appearance/Win....there are many factors that go into making it tough to repeat. I wouldn't hand the Ravens the divisions just yet. That's why they play the games.

As far as Woodley is concerned since the season ended he has had a bad attitude. Toward training with Shaw, toward the Ravens potentially (and eventually) winning a Super Biwl, and the refusal to admit he got lazy and out of shape and had part in the blame of what went wrong this season.


Hopefully this will shut him the fuck up and moticate him to start giving an effort. And if he is unwilling to restructure...i am sure there is someone willing to give up a good draft pick for an overpaid out of shape OLB.

sometimes things come too easily for people:

Want to know what I would do if money wasn't an issue and I didn't have to exhaust so much mental effort into paying the bills and surviving as an everyman, and getting paid millions of dollars to play a game?

I would be in that freaking training and video study room making sure I could be the best "player" at my position. I'm so tired of the fat cat's excuses - there are plenty of people that would relish your situation that have sacrificed a lot more in their lives. Quit whining Mr. Millionaire and actually put forth more effort towards a damn game. No one is saying you have to have monster stats every game/every season - but when you bitch and whine, could do more, and don't produce - you look and sound like a spoiled ungrateful ass that is out of touch with reality.

Woodley - get committed or get the eff out. I hear more about this guy's new suits or trips to the red carpet and his newest social media sweepstakes than I hear about what he's gonna do to commit. "Whoa is me . . .whaaaaaaaaa." If he was an employee at any other company he'd be looking for a new job.

I agree with what's being said, this team thought that games would be given to them. They forgot their hearts at home and don't even seem to enjoy the game.The competition is going to be tougher then ever, the Bengals are getting good and the Ravens will stay good with a well played off season, and we won't be able to avoid the Pats again like in 2005, 2008, and 2010. This is the time where they need to be playing with the most heart, yet they were playing with none and looked bad against the weakest of competition. I agree that that mindset was the major factor in not only this year, but in 2009 also. They better get the right attitude quick though, cause our guys are getting old.
