I hate Tom Brady and all but boy wouldn't it be nice to see the Ratturds start out 1-2?

And I never thought this would be possible, but with John Harbaugh I have found a coach that I dislike more than Belichick - they are both arrogant pricks but one of them has actually won something as opposed to the other one who thinks regular season wins deserve a Gatorade bath

Go Patriots!


Thank You. Couldn't agree with you more. I'm very surprised that so many choose the Patriots.
Division winner vs. wildcard - we know how that ends.
Hatred for many of them them: Ray Lewis, Harbaugh, T-Sizzle, Reed...etc.....etc.....etc...
For me it's a no-brainer. GO PATRIOTS

And, in 2001, the Steelers had a few odd snafus. Painful... because, that was a great defense.

I hate the Taperiots!!! I can still hear them taunting BB after the game... I can still see Deion Branch stomping on the hypocycloids in the middle of the field... I can still hear their CBs saying that they could "show" the Steelers their rings.

I hate them.

2. The turds idea sounds perfect.

2-a. So does a tie.

3. I have given it some thought, and we are Steelers fans. Merely "making the play-offs" is not good enough (we are not Chargers fans!!!). SuperBowls... PERIOD.

Thus, the best road to the SuperBowl brings Brady to PITT. The Taperiots losing as many games as possible, helps in this endeavor.

A loss by the Ravens helps the Steelers win the division.
A loss by the Taperiots helps the Steelers get home field.

I know, i know: if the Steelers don't win the division, there is no way that they can get home field. TRUE. But, since the Steelers have two more games against the Ravens, the Steelers can handle that business themselves (whereas, they have NO games, in the regular season, against the Taperiots).

Simply, if the Steelers can't beat the Ravens in those games, then the Steelers do not deserve the division.

Beat who's on the schedule, and the Steelers will control their destiny (as well as eliminate the Ravens & Bengals). But, since the Steelers do not play the Taperiots, the Steelers need the Taperiots to lose as many games as possible. Ergo, Go Ravens!!!
Die Cheatriots Diiiiiie!!!! We should not have to rely on the cheatriots for nothing, Steelers will handle the Ravens themselves!

How's this for a outcome. Ravens lose but Brady is out for season.

win-win for us

Perfect

It's only been 2 games but Ravens ranked 27th in defense with 404 YPG average. Be awesome if Suggs loss and The Murderer pushing 40 cripples their D.

Yet... no one is calling them "old & slow."

I'll take being called names & having a pretty good D (as opposed to being a media darling & being ranked 27th).

I hope the Ratturds D has a great day and punishes purdy boy.

And I hope it goes to OT and lasts til the final second with the Puts on the W end.

Only one way to get a top 4 seed.

Some great thoughts:

1. Beating each other up, will make them both "weaker" for their next game.

2. Over-time would give each of them an extra quarter of bruises (or, at a minimum, an extra quarter of play: exhausting both teams).

BTW: The Ravens play on Thursday... so, both of these factors could contribute to a loss (to the Browns).
