Yeah, once again "THE REFS MADE SURE THAT THE STEELERS BEAT THE RAVENS."

I swear, every Baltimoron should get line that tattooed on his/her forehead. That way they can stare at it in the mirror every morning, seething with rage over how the Steelers killed their overrated team's premature Super Bowl aspirations once again.

Then why are they continuing to throw Joe Flacco and Cam Cameron under the bus?

thats "par for the course", i think we'd be the same way.....but what i don't understand is that there were MORE non-calls in that game that should have went against the Ravens that were never called (which would and should have furthered our lead and/or advantage).
Honestly....they needn't complain. Don't make someone on the other side completely pick apart that game and re-show them all the stuff that wasn't called on them

This is typical of any team. People are frustrated with the team giving up what is a HUGE lead in games between these two teams and are venting.

IMO it wasn't the refs as much as a complete and total meltdown of the offense in the second half. We had done enough to get ourselves out to 21-7 and I believe would have actually won if we had just kneeled three times and punted on the two series that Joe threw the INT and fumbled. The D was playing fierce (minus a MORONIC play with 8 guys back on 3rd & 18) and we had a good lead. I'm personally pissed because we should have never let the Steelers back into this game. Once that happened, the momentum shifted and Ben did what he does best. If our O puts up average numbers, we win this game. We didn't and our guys are now playing golf. That's the way it goes...

and there's that "we beat ourselves" mentality. you guys seem to forget how they got the 14 point lead to begin with. by pittsburgh "beating themselves"
its like , the awesome ravens D forced the turn overs , but the steelers D was just lucky our O sucked today ...

Look, it is a fact that the offense of the Ravens played sub par. I give credit where credit is due. The Steelers D played hard and forced the fumble on Ray Rice, just like the Ravens forced the fumble on Mendenhall and Ben. Your D made a nice play for the INT when Joe floated the pass on Heap. But SERIOUS mistakes by our QB in floating that pass and definitely by dropping the snap allowed you guys to have 2 starts inside the 30. It was a killer.

On the offense side at the end of the game Boldin dropped a pass that hit him in the numbers in the endzone and TJ dropped a pass in the numbers that would have been a first down. The offense played terrible and should have played better.

This is the same type of meltdown that everyone one this board two weeks ago was saying about KC. "The Ravens didn't win it, KC gave it away" Look pretty darn similar to me....

and what were the gifts the ravens were gifted ? an easy TD , a fumble at their own 16 , and lets not forget the missed 3 points before the half... was that not a "killer" to the steelers ?.
i'd say the turnovers kinda was a wash. both defenses had the opportunity to minimize the scoring damage.. they didn't

i guess it does kinda suck for you guys to have 2 rookies out play your free agents ... if ozzy was a better gm , the ravens could find receivers to develope in the draft...

In the end, the scoreboard is what matters. Win, you move on, and lose, you go home.

I'm a Cowboys fan, and had to put up with this since the last time they won the Super Bowl in 1995. But that's just the way it is.
