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)
Being a ravens fan is one thing, but do you actually watch football, or any of the steelers/ravens games? It's completely obvious that Ben is a better QB, Flacco is good but he is not even anywhere near the class that Ben is in. Mere simpletons can see that. When Ben plays we beat the ravens every time, isnt flacco on thr otherside of the ball losing those games? You talk about what flacco would have done in the super bowl, first off he wouldnt have done anything, second he doesnt even know how to get to the super bowl, cant win a game your not playing in. Also, ben has already won a super bowl twice, he isnt going to go into a slump cause he lost one, a lot of the greats have lost super bowls. You guys are always so sour, claiming how you always are beating us and then giving the game away or some other stupid excuse, but the bottom line is you always loose, especially to ben. Everything you said was irrelevant to the actual facts.

Like when Flacco gave up the pick six to Polamalu in the AFC champuionship game when he was down 16-14, or like Flacco did (not) when he got the ball back with over 2 minutes to go after he coughed up the ball in Baltimore in December, or like Flacco did (not) after the Steelers took the lead with around 2 minutes left at Heinz in the playoffs last January?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not to their own facts

Keep on believing

Flacco has never done anything really significant in the playoffs. You need to quit bringing up one of the very few times he's beaten the Steelers (w/o Ben) as an example of how he would have done in the Superbowl. That's just sad and embarrassing for you.

Not surprisingly, you recall incorrectly. Ben was in 5th at the end of the season...Flacco was in 7th, just below Josh Freeman. And don't reply with "but, but, but, I said going into the last game!"....he was still behind Ben. Flacco is a decent QB, and may very well pass Ben up in the standings someday. Good thing for the Steelers, standings and passer ratings don't win you Superbowls. Teamwork does.

Keep whining about the bye week...because obviously, the Steelers have NEVER been able to beat the Ravens without it.

What's your excuse for the Steelers beating them in the '09 playoffs?

P.S. If the Ravens were the kind of dominating team that you make them out to be, you wouldn't need to come up with every excuse in the book when they lose. Just sayin'.

when are you guys going to start ignoring bobby jr and his BS? he's so thick headed that it's not worth reading anything he says. you're all seriously just wasting your time because he has purple glasses glued on his face.

as for the QBs, I'll take a half broken Ben over a healthy Flacco any day.
