I will second this whole heartedly. I live in the exact same situation and when the Ravens lose here in Baltimore, its a great Monday to be a Steeler fan. The moping and blaming of officials/Cam/Flacco/weather, never ceases to cause me joy.

Of course we need to win to make that happen. Lets go Steelers!

Bottom line is that the Steelers need to win no matter what the Ratbirds do. I suspect the Ratbirds will take Belicheat and company out, but I wouldn't put it past the so-called mad genius to come up with something to short circuit them. Either way, one AFC hated team loses.

Ditto, beat h**l out of each other, then in the end (I am trying very hard to type this) the Patriots steal one.

The patriots easily, rooting against our divisional foes early in the season is a no brainier. Although I think the ravens will win, they're a tough match in B-more

I dislike the Patriots and always consider a good weekend when they lose - except when they play the Ravens. When this happens, I root for neither, but always hope the NE prevails in an exceptionally close and physically costly game for both teams. I'm not saying that I like to see players getting injured (and I don't) - but it is a part of the game. So yeah, here's hoping for a bloody war of attrition.

My main interest is watching the Steelers win - when they do, anything else is a cherry on top.

After the abomination in northern Cali I'm rooting for the Ravens' D to knock the snot outta Marsha while finding a way to lose at the same time.

With each sip of Yuengling I tell myself, "there's still time for us to put it all together".
All body parts are crossed...

right now, as a collective unit, the Ravens look like a much, much better team than we have, even w/out Suggs.
I like our offense better, as a whole, they easily look like the better team right now.

As bad of a football weekend you could have. Us blowing a lead in the 4th QRT on the road against an inferior AFC opponent when our QB throws for 400 yards and 4 TD's and our competition in the North pull out close victories that could have gone either way.

Baltimore is tough to play at home. Will probably go undefeated this season on their own turf.

AFC North matchups will be bigger than you can imagine for us this season. We are ALREADY behind the 8-ball with 2 loss's against AFC opponents on the road. Not a good weekend for Steelers fans. As bad as it can get, really.

Hope we respond with a sense of urgency.
