At least Troy’s lucky pick required a little effort of changing momentum and diving for it.

But enough of that………………….

The Steelers faced a better team and destroyed them before half time. They have the best defense in the NFL, won the AFC North, and already made it to the Divisional round of the playoffs.

But the Ravens are better?

Am I missing something?


Yes I watched Reed's INT's. In which were him being in the right place at the right time and I give him credit for that. Palmer gave up so many late Christmas gifts to the Ravens it was pathetic. The Bengals pushed around that Raven Defense & they looked tired and wore out in the fourth quarter and luck was the Raven's friend on Sunday.

Let them Crown their Asses Champs in the words of Dennis Green. I would be suprised to see the Ravens playing after wild card weekend.

Putten $5 on the Seahawks, Chiefs, Colts and Packers.... Thats good money if they happen to pull it off lol.

But the Ravens do have a better chance against the Patriots like it or not, but the Steelers can take the Ravens any day. Football really isn't about the best team, its about the best matchups, and the Ravens matchup well against the Patriots.

# 1, because i still don't believe he's the greatest QB, and at the time, you jack***, Cassel was playing like the 2nd coming of Montana...even people in NE didn't want to lose him...believe me, i unfortunately live in NE at the time..... Everytime a team puts pressure on Brady he sucks. Not saying he's not very good, but i've never bought into that' "greatest" thing. No.
You, yourself, seem just like your gay screenname, fool....i'd be feeling pretty qu*** if i was you giving myself a screenname like that

Who give a sh*t what ESPN says anyway? Most bookies in Las Vegas have the Steelers at +500 and the Ravens at +1500

We almost, and should have gotten beat by Buffalo, we got spanked by the Saints, and the Ravens beat them, and lastly we should have lost to them if it weren't for Troy. Down the stretch the Ravens did look better with the exception of that last game. However all that said we shouldn't care, and everytime we are flying under the radar we rise to the occasion. I"m hearing how Green Bay is the scariest team in the playoffs, and they only put up 10 points to a team that had nothing to gain by a win. I don't listen to the dopes on T.V. their team to beat changes every week. Especially this season it was us then the giants then the philly then the jets then new england it's comical

By the end of the Ravens-Bengals game it was known to everyone that it made no difference whether the Ravens won or lost, insofar as their first round playoff game.
There was little incentive to go all out.

I think the Ravens would've played that Cincinnati game harder and better if they had to win the game to make the playoffs.

Sure there was a big time defensive meltdown by the Ravens by Webb, but Harbaugh is too good of a coach to let that happen again.

If you think the Ravens will lost to KC you are in the minority. Oakland showed that a physical team can dominate the Chiefs even in Kansas City. I'm sure Harbaugh has already studied those Chiefs Raiders films and that sets the model on how to play that team, and the Ravens can certainly play that style of game.

A fact that you guys seem to be missing is that Harbaugh is one of the best coaches in the NFL. He took over a losing team 3 years ago and he has taken them to the playoffs 3 straight years now. His game prep is excellent and he even proved last year he can outcoach Bilichick in a playoff game.
