Boller got it right into Heap's hands. The Ravens' Super TE couldn't haul it in. Still, another dumb*** call by the offensive "genius". Way to go Ballick.

You're on the goaline, 2nd down, and you call for a pass. Pure Genius.

All in all, IMO, this game bodes well for the Steelers. Both of the ahem... "elite" teams in the AFC North played ugly, looked ugly, and looked very beatable.

No question about it. I don't think I've ever seen one team self-destruct on offense as much as the Ratbirds did tonight. Even the worst games the Steelers played last season wasn't that bad. And the Bungles did nothing at all to impress me - I mean, they were handed the game on a silver platter in the form of 6 turnovers and a bad interference call, and still almost managed to piss it away.

I know it's only one week, but color me unimpressed as well.

Especially against a D made of swiss cheese.

Yeah, the better team lost... That's good for us. Although they both SUCK. We have this division won.

I still don't understand how people are saying Boller/Billick messed the game up. Boller had it tied twice once the refs took the game away and once Heap did. There was nothing wrong with the call.

What a sloppy game. I sure didn't see an elite QB on that field tonight. What was that the announcer said......"this drive is a statement for Carson Palmer'. And then he over threw another one. I guess he was right.

But then I'll have to listen to the Bungals fans thump about what a great game it was. That's ok......it's always such great fun watching them get all pumped up and the get deflated.

I'd just like to point out that most of the turnovers that the Ravens "handed" to the Bengals were the result of either the Bengals pressuring McNair, stripping the ball, or making good plays on the ball.

Neither team played to their full potential, IMO, but it's the first game of the season. We can't all open the season with the Browns.

Yeah, you probably would have lost to the Browns.
