Talk is cheap. Just trying to stir the pot and build pre-game drama.

Next.

according to casey hampton, their douchebag players talk much crap as well-

Quote:

"They talk a whole lot," Hampton said. "They don't like us. I think they don't like us a lot more than we don't like them. I think they have to talk themselves into it, kind of, know what I mean? Since I've been here, we've beat them a lot more than they beat us. They have to talk about it a whole lot."

And he's explained, in roundabout fashion, the awe that defenses have for Joe Flacco around the league. They're petrified. All they can do is damage control. Just cross their fingers and hope for the best.

The Ravens usually are the ones running their mouths. The only reason they didn't this offseason is because they probably realize their trash talk is looking pretty pathetic when they can't beat Pittsburgh when we have our starting quarterback. Their divisional loss in the playoffs was downright embarrassing after we pretty much handed them the game on a silver platter.

The Packers beating the Steelers has to give great confidence to a Ravens team that coughed up a home game lead to the Steelers last December because Flacco could not protect the ball with less than 5 minutes left and then gagged up a 21-7 second half lead in the playoffs for reasons including Flacco fumbling a snap from center, Flacco throwing a wounded duck of an interception, and their defnse giving up a 58 yard bomb by (guess who?) Roethlisberger on 3rd and 21 with 2 minutes left - pride and poise exemplified.

I expect a similar play will happen again, Suggs will have Ben in his sights and this time the result will be different.

Now something else about Ben. Remember how Tiger Woods used to awe the competition into submission? If he had the lead on the last day of an Major, well it was all over. Until one Sunday, he blew a two shot lead and lost a Major. After that he didn't seem quite so invincible.

Same thing with Ben. Look he had the chance for another Steelers Super Bowl ring right in his hands. Two minutes to go, 6 points down against the Packers. If he had stepped up and driven the ball for a winning TD, he would have gone down as one of the greatest clutch QB's in history.

Instead we have the memory of him walking off of the field as the Packers celebrated, yelling at the referees that they had missed a pass interference, when the replays showed there was none. The whole season came down to those two minutes. And while Ben had succeeded before in bringing the trophy to Pittsburgh with a dramatic TD in the Super Bowl, he failed this time.

That failure by Ben when the championship was on the line, has got to affect him and his teammates emotionally coming into the season. And give the Ravens confidence.

And it has got to make other teams like the Ravens believe they can beat him, that if they have the lead that Ben will not pull some magic two minute drill out of the hat again. Because he didn't against the Packers.
Well my friend, you are an expert on FAILURE since you are a fan of the Ratbirds. Every time Flacco plays the Steelers with Ben ===== FAIL. And Fail it will be again, now go back to your own team boards cry on the shoulders of the other ignoramuses like yourself and leave us to discussing a REAL football team.
You are dismissed!!

Welcome back
Nice try but Flacco would have certainly done something against a badly depleted Green Bay secondary with the Super Bowl on the line and two minutes to go. If he didn't lead the Ravens to a game winning TD (as he did against the Steelers in the first game last year) he would have at least gotten close and had some shots and the end zone.

I dont know if it was Ben's off the field problems or what but he didn't look like himself in that Super Bowl and the game could have been a lot worse than the final score.

I think he is a QB on the way down and Flacco is on the way up. Flacco was actually ahead of Ben in QB ratings going into the last regular season game last year as I recall.

The Ravens dominated the Steelers in the first half of the playoff game at Heinz until fatigue caught up and the Steelers Bye advantage was a big factor in that game. The Steelers were somewhat lucky to get that bye (dropped TD pass in end zone by Buffalo in overtime gave the Steelers an extra win)
