Really.

I live in San Diego, and I heard about the AFCCG for fourteen years... until the 2008 play-off game (where the Steelers held the ball for all but 13 second of the third quarter).

Owning another team shuts them up.
Never enjoyed football so much then in 2008. Perfect season of football from every way. And ended in epicness...

Seriously though: two of the greatest play-off games that I have ever watched (Steelers or not), followed by the greatest SuperBowl ever.

Such a great season.

Do we still hate the Ravens and want to crush them? Yes.

Is the rivalry the same this season with both teams struggling to find an identity and not fighting for the top spot in the division (currently)? No.

There isn't as much trash talk between the teams now either. With guys like Ward, Porter, Harrison, Ray-Ray, and Ed Reed gone, some of the luster has worn off the must-see rivalry for the rest of the nation. Even Terrell Suggs has been reserved and not talking shit like usual. Baltimore sports radio personalities said the same thing today.

Don't get me wrong, for myself and die-hard Steelers and Ravens fans everywhere, it's still THE game to watch, but it's lost a little of that nasty spark it had from 2 years ago.

Rivalry or not, Steelers probably can not afford to lose any division games the rest of the way and have to win 9 of the next 11 to have a shot at the playoffs.

The Jets win had some positives and negatives. The team looked good at points, but we're still far from what we used to be. I think it can be a building block, and if they take it one game at a time and pull off a few surprise wins then we might have a shot! The Pats D is pretty damaged and I still don't have much faith in their WR's vs a good defense, the Colts, Chargers, Texans, Dolphins, Ravens, and Bengals look good one week and then look terrible the next. I haven't seen this much inconsistency at once.

We need more QB pressure and we need Troy to start being as good mentally as he has been physically on defense and we need the run game to at least be good enough so that the D can't tee off on Ben every damn down. If we do those things then come playoff time we can beat anybody except Denver. In order to beat Denver we need to drastically improve in nearly every area, and I don't see that much improvement happening without the defense stepping up BIG and Haley hitting the road. Shit happens though. Many of us thought the Pats were untouchable in 2010 and we never even seen them in the playoffs.

Fixed for accuracy.

anyone who believes a sense of urgency will somehow elevate their play on the field must not remember the last few games of last year when they started shitting the bed instead of playing like they wanted a playoff spot. nothing they are saying to the media now is any different than the bullshit they said last year.

The Steelers are the only thing stopping the Steelers.

This is the year where all of that talking shall come to fruition. He'll will be unleashed... about four years later than expected.
