Joe Flacco is like Mark Malone, only on steroids, which enable him to take down innocent bystanders with a football. He can put the ball pretty far up into the stands, too.

Flacco is the best QB in the NFL. I heard him say so last offseason

One thing I'd like to say about the QB comparisons. Batch played well but our DB's way out played theirs. When was the last time you saw a coverage sack? I think there was at least two yesterday. So I feel is is more about our dbs and less about Bert. Really how many times did they have their hands on the ball? I still don't get why there isn't more talk about K. Lewis. He is playing out of his mind, when was the last time we had a corner knock down as many passes as he has?

Well put. Let's give our guys the credit they deserve for playing lights out and shutting the unibrow down. Two straight games they flummoxed Joe. He sounded clueless in his interview after the game.

Check out this draft from 2000....what could have been

R1 - Brian Urlacher
R2 - Chad Clifton (better and played longer)
R3 - Laverneus Coles
R4 - Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila
R5 - Adalius Thomas
R6 - Tom Brady (backup to Stewart who will still be replaced by Ben in 2004, also keeps Pats from winning a few Super Bowls)
R7 - Danny Clark

Steelers could have won all 10 Super Bowls in the decade. This would have forced the NFL to eventually shutdown since no other team could compete and the Steelers would be determined greatest sports team of ANY SPORT ALL TIME.

A little while back, a friend & I were bored, and we decided to re-draft for the Steelers (starting in 2005). The rules were simple:

You could draft anyone in R2 (or later) in R1... and anyone in R3 in R2.

In other words, no "real" R1 picks were taken, but any player 33 and beyond was available for your R1 pick, and any player 65 & beyond would be available for one's R2 pick... and so on.

Needless to say, at first, one would think that not having a player in the top 32 would make for a bad team. Both of us tried it, and we had amazing rosters. Try it... it is amazing how DEEP you can make a team, in hindsight... even without any "R1" picks.

True, but people KEEP brining it up... and thus, we keep discussing Ray Rice.

By the way, on a similar topic, another "Mike Wallace" thread just started.

This bitter observation from The Baltimore Sun

It wouldn't be a loss to the Steelers without a fumble by Joe Flacco.

No shit. This reminds me of the bellyaching when Troy made a similar play on ole Unibrow a few years back.

Steelers are incapable of not strip-sacking Flacco.
