Unstoppable? LMFAO what games have you been watching. They had a lucky year many would argue. And they are hardly unstoppable. In fact I believe we will in fact win Sunday convincingly. Call it a gut feeling.
Well, I would agree we are certainly not unstoppable. However, it would be hard to argue that 11-3 teams are simply lucky. I think they read the Steelers blueprint to the SB this year. If the offense is struggling then the defense will find ways to score. If the offense needs better field position then special teams would help them. Finding ways to win is what good teams do. That is what the Steelers did last year and that is what the Ravens are doing now.

And while I do not think that the Ravens are unstoppable, their D is playing very good. The offense leaves something to be desired, but this same formula won them a SB in 2000. I would hope that we go with a no-huddle offense to start with to slow down the blitz and see where that takes us. It worked for Cincy.

Good point, Cincy's O-line stepped up against the Ravens on that Thursday night game. The Ravens defense got tired of being on the field for so long. I'm telling you, games are won at the line.

These a$$holes havent beaten anybody. Look at their sched. They beat Chargers back at beginning of Oct before the Chargers began to roll. Other than that its been vics against the likes of Oak, Clev, Bucs, BIG-FRIGGIN-WOOP !!!!!
These A$$HOLES are gone first round of the playoffs, second round if they get a bye.

Ben needs to pass faster and get Willie to the outside. Jump on them fast and they will break.....The oline knows they got beat last time they will come to play this time.

Maybe another trick play or two could see a big bunch of Davenport up the middle to weaken the outside for Willie



Dan scores in this game you heard it here first



final
Steelers- 24
rats- 13

Payback is a female dog

The Ravens have played the same teams you guys have played besides Miami and Jacksonville. Miami is awful and Jacksonville is inconsistent, if anything the Steelers had an easier schedule then the Ravens. The schedule argument is a poor excuse. Come on, be fair. They have beat 5 teams with winning records this season. Not to mention they had to go into Kansas city and beat a team that hasn't loss at home in a decade.

I have taken off my purple shades every time we play the Steelers. Just like Brian Billick said earlier this week, "The Steelers are one of the most talented teams across the board on offense, defense, and special teams". And the Ravens still believe that. We throw out records every time we face you guys.

It would be nice to control the line of scrimage, and wear that D out....and then Ben finds Heath over the middle for some 25 yard catches.....control the football.... you know our D is gonna show up ....

SF... we can win this football game! We've won tougher games away from Heinz before..

Our Oline needs help in the backfield, whether it be Heath or Krieder. No one back sets.
