Default Steelers still not getting respect

And that's just fine with me. I mean I will assume that most of the betting public is betting on Baltimore cause the national Pt spread line is Pittsburgh by 1 1/2. And since it is a well known fact that home teams are given 3 Pts just for being at home, the experts must feel Baltimore is the safer pick. I mean what a crock this is. I mean even after Flacco's 128 QB rating against the Cruddy Browns, his overall rating is just over 66. And he's only completing like 54 % of his passes. And consider Ray Rice, maybe Baltimore's most relied upon offensive player, well his availability for Sunday's game is still very much up in the air.


And with all that the Ravens are still favored. Hey like I said, fine with me. I always think the steelers play better and more focused when the national media and public are doubting them. Can't wait til Sunday!!

No doubt in my mind we beat them with Ben.

But you can't take anything away from Flacco against the Browns if you don't do the same with Batch against the Bucs. It will be a close game for sure and should be a coin flip on the betting lines.

The Steelers should be favored by at least 6 Pts. And I will give that to any who wish. The Ravens at home against a bad Browns team with their own 2nd stringer in the game is not too Impressive. Lets see how he does in Pittsburgh, with our loud Home crowd. Baltimore will be lucky, and I mean Lucky to score a single TD and maybe 2 FG's.

Ravens 10

Arians can pull us through so long as Batch doesn't thow Pick 6s. Every TD will be important.

Arians was beasting Sunday.

no respect? all you hear and see is about the Steelers being the top, or one of the top couple teams in the NFL. i just hope it doesn't go to the players' heads. you're not going to get favorable betting lines when you start backup QBs... that's never going to change. i seem to remember us being favorites in nearly every game last year, but look how that turned out. we were one of the absolute worst teams at covering the spread.

Name the last time a team who was undefeated, at Home was an Underdog ? Yeah I know we are 1 1/2 Pt favorites. But in reality we are Underdogs. And Baltimore defense is not all that great, or even as good as either Tennessee or Atlanta's as far as points allowed. I know the spread doesn't mean squat to our team. But I was just saying it as a fan, that's all.

Good the more "experts"that pick against us will only make this team better and more hungry to prove them wrong

All this ”being favorite” thing shouldn’t bother any of us. Period.
Flying under the radar is what’s gonna take you to your target safely.

I don't get the obsession of "respect", I'd much rather be the underestimated "underdog" and I really wouldn't care to have everyone gushing over how awesome we are, I'd rather not have bandwagon fans and haters.

I'd take Batch over Flacco. I've always thought Charlie was one of the best back-up QBs in the league. I'm not sold on Flacco ... just not buying what he's selling. He doesn't suck or anything like that, but he's not championship material.
