I agree. I thought the Chiefs really collapsed the Ravens front and did it with ease. They were a young bunch and just couldn't hold contain of a team that overpowered them in every way shape and form and they still got some mad penetration and got to Flacco.

Jamaal Charles was ripping through the line for like 8 yards per pop at a time during the game so I think the Ravens team has many, many holes as a unit on both sides of the ball. We are way more balanced and play better overall swarming defense.

I'm very excited to see what happens when we both have ALL of our team together. This game will finally start (and hopefully end) with both teams showing their best. First game you didn't have Ben. Second game, we didn't have Heap. Everyone should be suiting up to have the final showdown.

I think Joe will do well. He has been playing pretty well and was lights out at KC. I know we always compare Joe v. Ben, but Ben wouldn't have had anything to do with the game winning drive we put together in the first meeting. I think it is much more a question of defenses. Troy makes an amazing play to beat us the second round. It will come down to one huge play by a key player to decide this one. Just like it always does.

Here's to a kick ass game!! I have to say though, I'll be cheering for the Pats if the Steelers win. The fiancee is from Boston. I think it is in the pre-nup!!

Go Ravens!
I think TE play could help decide this one. I know Heap was hurt on the 1st series, but I believe Miller was lost in the 2nd q. Steelers need to take away Heap and make Flacco find his receivers before we can get to him.

Lol well the Browns-Steelers rivalry up until 1996 was very competitive and exciting to watch. While the Steelers have gone 21-4 against the new Browns, against the old Browns, the Steelers went 41-52 (including a complete OWNING of the series by the Browns from 1950-1970). Against the Ravens, the Steelers are 20-12.

So personally, I consider the Ravens to be the respectable and always feisty team from Cleveland that the Steelers faced from 1950-1995.

Anyone willing to bet against me on the fact that Cowher will pick against the Ravens? I know, you're at home and favored and everything, but I'm not convinced that he would EVER for any reason pick us over the Steelers in any game, no matter what the circumstances.

Gotta support the division no matter what happens. No way anyone from Baltimore or Pittsburgh can possibly cheer for a NY or Boston team to win anything outside of the "Douche Bag Fan Base of the Year Award". I have no problem saying I watch Baltimore every week as long as they are not playing at the same time we are, and I only hate them 2 or 3 times a year (this week being one of them).

No if Cowher wants to keep enjoying his celebrity status in the Burg, he will never pick against them.


Good luck to your birds this weekend, Saturday can't get here fast enough.

Good luck to you as well and may the best team win. Is it me or does it seem as if this week is going by slower than normal? The beer is already at it's subzero temperature waiting to be wrapped in a Steelers beer bottle holder.

Who cares, I stopped listening to all of the pre-game stuff. I get so fired up I can't even listen or read writeups anymore but Cowher picked the Steelers to finish last the past couple years so I don't buy in what they say. Believe it or not, the Ravens are the darling of the media when it comes to the NORTH, every critic always picks the Ravens to go to the Super Bowl or has that advantage over Pittsburgh, including next week. All we hear is how dominant the Ravens are, Flacco and Ray Lewis when the Steelers just kick that ass every year when it counts.
