Default Bart Scott says he went "easy" on Ben.

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_521257.html

I say let him brag. He's earned it. It was a clean hit, his Ravens beat us, and pretty badly last year. We took our medicine. Now it's up to the Steelers to redeem themselves. Until then, the Rats can/will talk as much as they please. They were at least classy about it though.

Also, is it just me, or does it seem to me that players from AFC North division rivals love trashing the Steelers in the media? Braylon Edwards, T.J Douche, Carson Palmer, Terrell Suggs, Chad Johnson...

I just read it - it didn't sound much like "bragging" to me. It was a good, hard hit, and he acknowledged it - so what? He was also complimentary of and seems to respect Ben, same with Ed Reed. Sorry, but there isn't anything in this story worth getting upset over, IMO.

Plus Bill Cowhers predictable power running offense is now gone to.....I love the power running game to but it was clear when we faced the Ravens that our offense was to predictable....They owned us in every way last year....Which makes me sick since I hate the Ratbirds......I hate Billick,Gay Ray, Suggs,Chris Mac,Bart Scott,Ed Reed and basically every player on that team.....

I can't wait for payback....This year the Ratbirds go down in flames....

Good point, B@GF32 - run on first against 9 in the box for no gain, run on 2nd against 9 in the box for no gain, pass on 3rd-and-long. I'll miss Cowher, but I won't miss that maddening predictability.

I'll miss Cowher to and its weird not seeing him on the sidelines....During the Hall of Fame game I still found myself looking for Cowher on the sideline...lol But he was so damn stubborn at times he drove me nuts...lol He was a great HC no doubt but it was time for a change.......

good for Bart....but really, what's his point? Does he think Ben will fear him more now that he knows he let up a litte? I doubt it....

what do they say about payback? Oh yeah, it is a beeyach.

Chalk this story up to a slow news day and a sportswriter who just finished ready the "big hit" article in SI.

Well...our defense was kinda soft of McNair last year too. Expect his knees to bust with LeBeau's new defense
