Ravens are no chumps
 
I think some have the impression that this Baltimore team is essentially the same as last year, and while it may be true to an extent, they were MUCH better than their record indicated.

We got the better of them today, but they are a quality team who nearly beat us in our own backyard on monday night with a rookie QB. Their D is top notch, their O-line is strong, and Flacco appears competent at the least. Keep in mind they get to play Oakland and Miami while we get New England and San Diego...

They made it pretty clear tonight that this division will be a dog-fight to the end.

I agree. The Ravens are for real and will be right there with us until the end of the division race this year. Not the paper champion Browns.

We were down 13-3 and things weren't getting better at one point.

They proved that winning this division won't be easy, but the Steelers proved that it's still their division for now.

their offense is still severely lacking. they have no playmakers. flacco does look good though. he looks like another ben to be honest.

That thought struck me too . . . Flacco reminds me so much of Ben a few years ago . . .

Anything can happen, but from what I saw tonight, this division race is between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens.

I love how when they panned the camera out to show Pittsburgh the commentator talked about the great games played here lately and mentioned the Steelers v. Ravens . . . then the Browns , , , and nothing on the Bengals:flap:

Unless you talk to Derek Anderson.:chuckle:

Of course he is still waiting for the original members of the "Doors" to getback together.:noidea:

Me neither - we played like absolute crap on offense most of the game and still won. This team needs to start playing better on offense immediately.
