The "ref bias" excuse plagues all fandoms, in every sport, for every team. For the steelers it comes in the incarnation of claiming the NFL commissioner has a grudge against them and plots their downfall on the field, a number of steelers fans are convinced the patriots receive special treatment too.
Theres always some fans from any team will do this, it's a pretty common complaint people make, don't know why.

No. Ravens fans are worse. Fact.

Only if the word fact is meant to mean something completely other than what it actually means could your statement be considered true.

He's doing an average job against a secondary without Talib - he's not for real.

Probably true. And with only an 80 year head start!

EDIT: 80 year head start as a franchise, only 45 years since superbowl I. Muuuuch smaller head start. Hopefully we will be in a dead heat in a couple of weeks, if you count from 1996. . .

Franchise existed before 96. Changing names and moving doesn't negate that. But, congrats to you, as one of the few Ravens fans who carries themselves like a man, I'm happy that you broke through after getting close over and over. Enjoy the next two weeks good sir.

Only as a measurement for the past seventeen years but overall no because the Ravens weren't an expansion team. Anyhow, congrats to your team tonight. I'll admit here. I was really cheering (okay honestly more so cheering against the Pats) for the Ravens once I thought hard about it when I put on the game in the second half. Still undecided who I want in the SB. Niners having six SBs or a hated division rival having one. It's going to be a great game though.

Thanks to both of you.


I am honestly looking forward to another battle for the North next year. It's good to be in a division with tight competition, the regular season never gets dull.

I will have to disagree on tying our history to the Browns, the Browns still exist in Cleveland, and for a Baltimore native I can say that we tie our football history to the Colts, not the Browns.

Not to be too harsh, but there are plenty of Ravens fans who would say the same about Steelers fans, and I have as little faith in their opinions on the matter as I do yours.

When I saw Flacco first emerge into the league and play against the Steelers I wasn't too thrilled. You could see that the guy had a huge arm and great poise in the pocket. Still he's not a big stats guy and his completion percentage is generally too low.

But you can't deny how he performs when the chips are down. He's right in the midst of his prime and the road win record is indicative of that. He raises his game in the playoffs and that's the most important thing. The guy is currently having an impressive run.
