Re: Wow, Steelers at Ravens week one
Yeah Joe hasn't beaten Ben. That will mean little next year. Past performance doesn't guarantee future results. Several of Rothlisbergers wins over Flacco were very close and controversial games. And Ben hadn't lost a Super Bowl until last year either.
Oh and discounting the Ravens win at Pittsburgh because Ben wasn't playing is pretty weak. The Steelers scored more points without Ben in Pittsburgh than they did with him in Baltimore. Also Ben wasn't playing defense, the Steelers had the lead but their defense failed to stop Flacco in the closing seconds of the game in Pittsburgh, that is why they lost.
They are both good QB's but I don't see that much of a gap between them. There is more of a gap between those two and Rodgers.
