Poo pooing the Ravens not legit
 
I have spoke to a lot of Steeler fans who say things like "Balt.
isn't that tough. They beat a really bad KC team who had nothing
to offer. They should have lost to Cinci and barely beat the Browns.
I don't think they are that good. Pgh is much better and should win
fairly easy."

I do not agree. Not at all. First of all, they exposed KC as a limited
team, as had Oakland had done a week before. KC is horrible if
they have to complete passes downfield. And once Balt. made them
have to do so, they were exposed as impotent in the passing game.
All KC could really do was run and do screen passes. Balt. made
them listless but it takes a good D to make them so. KC showed
they could beat teams this year, but they were limited.

As far as barely beating Cinci or Cleveland, a win is a win. And
inter-division match ups are often close.

I feel Balt. is a good team. A team capable of beating Pgh. I still
give Pgh a slight edge, but either team could realistically win this
game. It will most likely be a fist fight like usual.

Flacco is playing well, Rice is good, Heap is healthy and proving
very productive again, Boldin is a factor, and Ray Lewis is
still Ray Lewis, 35 or not; he is still making a difference, hitting
opponents, causing fumbles, etc.

I am glad the Steelers themselves are not taking Balt. lightly as
some of my buddies are.

Anyone that says the Ravens aren't any good isn't paying attention. They're basically a mirror image of the Steelers.

I hate the Ravens, but they will ALWAYS play us tough and are not to be taken lightly. This game, make no mistake, will be an all out war this Saturday. It will not be a blowout as much as I'd like to see it (in favor of the Steelers, of course!). It will come down to who makes that one crucial mistake, one big play or who makes the needed field goal to put them over the top. It will be tight and physical with the winning team having earned every bit of it.

One problem with us is we played down to our opponents and that made us look bad. All division games are tough especially in the begining and middle of the season. That problem seems to be behind us and we are ready for the SB run.

The Ravens are a tough team and no one wants to play us.

There is a reason the Pats are hoping the Steelers win as we match up very well with them and the steelers dont. Just like we did not want to play the Colts.

The Ravens are a very good team, and are hungry to beat us in the playoffs.

Just read this stat:
Since 1970 the steelers are 8-0 in the playoffs against division opponents and 2-0 against the ravens.

They want to beat us, its going to be a hard hitting game

More than anything though I think its being hyped up as a hard game, when really it will be Ben and Joe who will win this game on finesse and passing. Neither team has ever been able to run on one another, ray rice is getting all his yards through the quick check down up the middle, and mendenhall has had very little production against the ravens. This game is going to come down to our secondary shutting them down, and Ben having enough time to find our receivers...which should mean that you should be looking for sanders and brown to step it up this week.

First time poster, sorry if it was to long.

Lets go kick some raven ass.

It's gonna be a bloodbath, that's for sure. May the last man(in this case, team) standing come out on top and hopefully, eventually represent our division in the super bowl. Good luck guys.

Not to get ahead of ourselves, but I don't like the chances of beating
NE - either of us.
