Ravens' Fake Extra Point
 
Rubbing it in or just a good job of taking what the defense gives you? Personally I thought it was dumb. They could have saved that play and had it in their back pocket for the next match-up in case they actually needed it.

Well, there certainly was not any stratigic reason to do it. I hope that the players have good memories. Harbaugh must have some belicheck in him.

I was thinking the same thing. Why give that play away?

Throwing it in the endzone on 1st down at the 20 (where Boldin was called for PI) was worse than that 2 point conversion.


Tomlin will use it to motivate the team.

I had no problem with that pass attempt to Boldin. What are the Ravens supposed to just stop playing cause they have a big lead?

Now HERE'S an example of clowning a team when you're up big:

Today was a scrimmage for the Ravens. We were just a scrub team for them. Why not just screw around and practice stuff, get it right for later, when you have to play real teams?

I know you're just joking....but today was actually the SUPER BOWL for the Ravens. They're probably on cloud 9 right now. By Wednesday they'll realize they're just 1-0 like half the other teams in the league.

I thought it was dumb too. Hopefully they'll need a two point conversion at a crucial point in a more crucial game and they'll be discovered because of this. I think it was Harbaugh's way of rubbing it in honestly though since the guy despises the Steelers so much.

I'm kind of joking. Just kind of.

Good for Harbaugh to rub it in. I think it worked. He and the other Ravens clearly got into the Steelers' heads and they never got him out.

The game wasn't over at that point. It was an exciting gambit, give the Ravens some credit for it. I'm surprised more NFL teams don't try it
