Baltimore Sun - Sour Grapes Column Of The Year
 
This Baltimore Sun column reads on its face as Pats-Colts love + Ravens hating, but IMO this columnist has a definite dislike of the Steelers:sofunny:

David Steele

It was as bad as we thought.

Not the final score, 38-7, last night at Heinz Field. Not the extent to which the Ravens were humiliated by the Pittsburgh Steelers on national television, or the depth to which they sank with their ineptitude on both sides of the ball.

What became brutally evident was what America's football fans suspected the day before. The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts are the real deal in the NFL, with the rest of the league barely visible in their rearview mirrors.
...

It's still hard to tell whether the Steelers are as good as they looked last night. Probably not. They still have weaknesses better teams can exploit - or lesser teams, like 3-5 Arizona and 3-5 Denver. They just never had to worry about it last night....

Watching the Patriots and Colts on Sunday made your heart sing. Watching the Steelers and Ravens the next night made your eyes bleed.

I still think the Pats & Colts are the 2 best teams in the league, but I do not see how the Steelers somehow disgraced themselves in the eyes of ths columnist last night.

Ray Ray still believes he didn't kill a guy either. The guy is delusional. He's just lucky we decided to run the ball and get rid of the time on the clock, otherwise we would have aired it out and destroyed them even more.

In addition to the state of Ohio, I also hate Ray Lewis.

Ravens have Immature Bengals mentality. "The Steelers didn't beat us, we beat ourselves." That's why the Steelers will whoop the Rats again in Cracktown. And of course, the column reeks of complete sourgrapes. "We got our ass whoped by the Steelers, but the Steelers aren't better than the Pats and Colts."

We'll see you in Baltimore, Gay Ray.

Non-sequiturs won't change the score. 38-7.
