As Tony was saying, I truly think that Haley was saving all of his "splash plays" to Wallace for thise three week stretch (i.e. against the Ravens). BB's injury put a damper on that.

The silver lining: Haley can now use those plays in the play-offs.

As far as Droppy goes: I
was hoping that he would regain the starting role with vigor. Instead, when faced with two backs breathing down his neck, he fumbled twice.

As far as Wallace goes:
I now prefer Sanders. Speed is only good is one actually CATCHES the ball. Give me a guy who routinely catches 10 yard passes over a guy who rotuinely drops 50 yard passes.

You mean the same douchebag who let Slow Byron jog past him a few weeks ago?

Fuck you, Rat fan. Your team isn't that good, and you'll find out sooner than you think.

I'm getting really sick and tired of seeing the Ravens fans' nonsense

CharlesK,

Keep drinking the purple kool-aid and keep gloating.
Your team has been as lucky as shit and you know that..... but luck runs out.
Keep celebrating regular season (repeat, regular season) wins.
Keep giving your classless coach Gatorade baths.
Keep counting your lonely Super Bowl win.
Remember, 6 >>>>>1.

Does Harbaugh get a Gatorade bath for sweeping the season series?

Check back after he wins a game that merits having the bucket dumped on him - Ravens have not won one of those since 2001

If we need underneath receivers and value tight ends, then we need to grab someone like Woods in the draft to replace him. As much as I hate to say it, I doubt he comes back to the Steelers next year and it won't be because we won't match the money another team will.
A voice of reason. Dink and Dunk offense are a mix match for throwing the ball down the field. I agree, if we can 't use him then let him go. Mike's not a bad kid.
