O Line- Swiss cheese

Flacco- looks like Boller

WR's- can't get seperation and drop too many balls

D Line- couldn't penetrate the backfield of a Pop Warner team

LB's- starting to get real slow

Secondary- Webb looked ok, the rest couldn't cover a bed with a blanket

Coaches- do they know how to motivate? Nothing like taking 42 seconds to come to the LOS late in the 4th when you're down by two scores

They are NOT a playoff-caliber team.

What was once (I thought) looking like a great year for the AFCN has taken a bad turn for the Steelers and the Ravens. What a debacle.

We are HORRIBLE, but 90% of the blame can be placed on the secondary/WRs.

Looks like the Bengals are going to be the only AFC North team headed to the playoffs this year. The division is definately theirs to lose (And they won't). Weeks ago it looked like three teams would make it (One Division winner and two wildcards), but guess not. The Steelers definately aren't going to make it. That's for sure.

The Steelers can't get out of their own way to do anything right and are sporting a pitiful secondary that was shredded by Matt Cassel and Bruce Gradkowski. Real murderous row of QB's there.

The Ravens have pretty much the same issues.

Yeah, Crow. It's been a disaster for both teams who just months ago was playing for the Super Bowl.

The B&G colored glasses make me keep some hope, but we really must look pitiful to the rest of the NFL.
The Ravens look pitfiul, but the Pack are a relatively decent team.

The Steelers are just a laughingstock after being made fools of by Jokeland and Kansas City.

No, that is patently false.

Our secondary isn't that great, but had the offense scored some points in the first half, it would have been competitive. And maybe one reason the secondary ain't so great is that QB's have all $#*&! day to look for an open receiver, as the pass rush blows. Flacco was running for his life two seconds after the snap and Rodgers had time to trim his nails, shave and then hit Driver for a 24-yard gain.

No, the Ravens have a myriad of faults. The secondary is one of them, but they aren't 90% of the problem. I have to honestly say that much of what I witnessed last night falls on the backs of the HC and his staff.

I know you feel that way (and I do know that GB isn't that bad of a team), and I would too, in your shoes. But at this stage, let's just both agree that our respective teams are not playing playoff-caliber football and leave it at that.

We'll get more sleep that way.

I was talking about the entire season, not just last night's game.

I'll stand by my statement as the offensive line isn't to blame, the running backs aren't to blame, the quarterback isn't to blame per se, the linebackers aren't to blame, the FB isn't to blame, and the TE isn't really to blame.

I'll give you that the pass rush has been horrible, but otherwise, the blame falls entirely on the secondary/wide receivers.

I really think that Flacco suffers from horrendous WR play as he has come to expect Mason/Clayton/Williams/Washington to be covered, and thus hesitates even when they are open by a toenail or two, which is why you see him pumping the ball so damn much, and always dumping off he ball to Rice.

You mean CBs and SAFTIES. All of our WRs have shown up except for one whose name rhymes with "weed".
