If we want to be in the playoffs... it is only right that we face the Ravens at full strength.

Hey, Darkraven...

Keep up the class... your welcome here anytime!

I think McNair starting will be the difference, his hand is going to be sore all week. And I am willing to bet it will affect his play a bit. The D won't fold like they did the last time, and I just don't see out O doing as poorly, although I do see 2 Ben INT's in our future.

My prediction

Stillers: 24
Ravens: 21 (14 points off TO's)
My english is fine, thank you. McNair will should heal quickly and throwing the ball isn't the problem. The Ravens were concerned about infecting the sore after taking constant snaps from center. I know that I have mentioned this before but if the O-line steps up Sunday. You will see the difference. I personally think games are won in the trenches. I think Ben has problems reading the different defensive schemes Rex Ryan gives him. And who can blame him, the Ravens defense is a mixture of 4-3, 3-4, and even 46 defense.(Buddy Ryan Signature 85' Bears scheme). It should be a hell of a match up. Two bitter rivals leaving everything on the field after the game.

Actually DarkRaven... that is literally English... as in, LITP is FROM ENGLAND.

i dunno if i like mcnair starting...he has always caused us problems even when he was with the titans. but i doubt our d will care who is under center, they will be out for blood. but wat i dont understand ok cool beans the ravens are trying to get a 1st round bye which i know is crucial. but why risk your starting qb...which is already injured...against the most punishing defense in the league. i didnt say dominating...i said punishing. so dont say oh baltimore has the better defense and i agree at the moment they do. the steelers just let u know u have been hit anywho. i just dont see a point in starting mcnair when he could get hurt. ahhh hell i dont care strap a bullseye on him.

Very well stated, Tony. We welcome fans of all teams here at SF and give them a fair chance until they prove to be trolls, which DarkRaven definitely is not. Glad to have you on board, Dark Raven.

I think the Ratfinks are going to see quite a different team on that field on Sunday than they did a month ago. This is going to be a great game - wish Sunday would hurry up and get here!

I have to agree with the majority here. I think fans from other teams should not hesitate to join the forum. I think it's always a good thing to have a non "homer" perspective. I have enjoyed litp, cantstop85, silver and black and now black ravens perspectives. Sometimes being a die hard steeler fans we tend to be homers..

I think as diehard fans of teams we love, though some different, all of us can be put in that "homer" category with regard to our respective teams. Nothing wrong with that at all. I believe different perspectives by other teams' fans is healthy for the growth of the board.
