Default By the way....

For those who scoffed that the additions of Boldin and Houshmandzadeh
to the Ravens could be the difference in them beating us, well.....it looks to
me that the addition of those two are EXACTLY what the margin of victory
came down to. Take those two players off that team, and it appears we win.

So, just saying.

This loss has a silver lining. Now we don't have to deal with the talking
head idiots say, "Are the Steelers better without Ben?"

steelers shot themselves in the foot too many times to beat a good team yesterday. Without housh or boldin we would still lose the game, failing to turn 2 turnovers into points, committing boneheaded penalties at the worst time possible, the fact of the matter is we played a bad game. Baltimore is not the better team. They were lucky to come away with a win despite us playing sloppy and without ben. We will embarass them in their own house when we meet again, bank on it.

Keep in mind that the Ravens played without several injured players too. They were much more effective than the Steelers down the stretch, didn't commit as many stupid penalties, didn't miss as many scoring opportunities, and were better coached, IMO.

Boldin is a bigger addition than anybody that we added. He is a number 1 receiver....

Running 3 times into the dead center of the line with 2:30 left and holding a lead with the other team having no time outs is why we lost the game.

Housgfouiluseghupwaeioh and Boldin were not on the field during that cluster-f***. They had zero to do with the win or loss.

Scoring zero points off of two turnovers hand gifted to you in the second half by the D could have also contributed no?


Ravens D is tough as nails and they brought it. The game was close.

It is still not why we lost it's just a part of the overall game but not the deciding factor. No Ben=No Win in these games for us.

The only thing that concerns me here is the defense reverting back to '09 form and losing a game in the last minute 30. Letting the RATBIRDS EASILY waltz down the field and beat us. Harrison and Woodley really did nothing all game. Both things are scary and let's not hope indicators.

who scoffed at the Boldin addition? everyone knows Boldin's a great receiver and always has been. they brought in a stud #1 receiver. the only drawback is that he is injury prone... but when healthy, he can bring it as much as any receiver.

i was PO'd at the Housh addition because they got him for the vet minimum after the Seahawks cut him and basically ate all of his salary for this season. he hadn't made much of an impact up until yesterday, but he is still better than pretty much any receiver out there making the vet minimum.

Hmm, and to think I thought I watched at Houshie scored that TD, which
would probably not been caught by any player on that team last year. That
was their _last_ chance and he got open and made the play. If not for that play,
we win.
