I'm sorry, I'm confused ... I thought Flacco threw the ball into the turf on his last passing attempt in the last game the Ratbirds and Steelers played. Did I miss something? Apparently the doubt wasn't really erased, now was it BOOBY?

Joe has played in 5 playoff games and has completed less than 50% of his passes with 6 interceptions and 1 TD. 57 Completions / 120 Attempts (47.5%) for 660 yds.


Yeah, he really shows up when it counts.

I can tell you're a Ravens fan. Can't have a football discussion with a Ravens fan without the officials being mentioned......

Anyway, that was a controversial call, I'll give you that. Some ppl thought it was in, others thought it wasn't. Either way, it wasn't by more than a millimeter. The call could have went either way.

I'm not sure what down it was, or how much time was left, but I suspect that the Steelers would have run another play from the 1-inch line and more than likely made it in.

The Steelers aren't as vulnerable to the pass as you imply. They gave up some yards against 2 of the best quarterbacks in the league and against teams that refused to run the ball. Of course they'll give up passing yards.

The important thing to take away from the Saints game is that they still gave up only 20 points to the 6th ranked offense.

As for the Patriots, they've always been a match-up problem for the Steelers. Tom Brady just has their number.

Guess what: Tom Brady doesn't play for the Ravens!

It would have been 4th and goal and the Steelers would have had to either go for the TD to win, or kick a FG to tie, as I recall. Instead the officials decided the game by awarding the Steelers a TD even though their was no visual proof of a TD.

Sometimes you don't need to pass well, when your team is well out in front like the NE game last year. The important thing is the "W".

Joe couldn't be that bad in the playoffs because he took his team to the AFC Championship game with two playoff wins two years ago, then the Ravens soundly spanked New England on the road last year in the first round.

It was called a TD on the field, so they didn't 'give' the Steelers a TD. They just decided not to take one away.

And for that it must mean there was no visual proof to overturn the ruling!!! SHUT UP!

Come on just because he won that Steelers game doesn't guarantee he will always beat them from that point on.

As I recall the pass Joe threw into the turf there was a Pittsburgh rusher which influenced that throw it wasn't like he just missed a wide open receiver with no rush in his face.

Ben had the chance beat the Jets on the 10 yard line but neither of his last two passes gave his receivers a chance. Nobody is perfect.

But Flacco proved he can beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh by taking his team for a game winning TD with no timeouts left and that was a big milestone.

No it was called a stop on the field, on the 1/2 foot line. then they awarded the Steelers a TD after reviewing the replays. That was why all the commentators said it was a terrible call, they said there was no proof one way or the other, and the call on the field should have stood. You could not tell from the angles whether he had broken the end zone plane or not.
