They held a NFL team scoreless and covered a 14 point spread

Could they have played better - yes - but you could say that about every team that won today

ultimately we're fans of a team where the superbowl is the standard. we could go undefeated for the rest of the regular season and it wouldnt mean jack squat towards erasing the week one loss, if we didnt win it all.
Sure there is.
We can return the favor next time.

Maybe we should wait until they play the games in January before we call the Patriots "great"?

Walk me through what the Patriots have accomplished since beating San Diego in the AFC championship game in January 2008

As Ed. B,. of the P-G wrote today, nobody wins the Super Bowl in September

And by saying we should note how the Pats play against "other great teams" are you calling the Chargers a great team?

As someone here recently and very astutely pointed out, the Patriots are as deeply in the heads of many Steeler fans as the Steelers have been in the heads of many Ravens fans.

at least the ravens fans can cling onto the fact that we usually split the season with them. the patriots are a team we NEVER beat, unless brady isn't playing. that one time we beat a team led by him it didn't matter. early in the season and they came back to smoke us when it mattered most (AFCCG)

yeah i'll admit it, the pats are definitely in my head.

When's the last time the Ravens beat us in game that "really mattered", in other words, a playoff game?

I don't know, but I'm sure a lot more recently than the last time we even won a less meaningful game against the pats. When was the last time we beat a brady-led team? I was still in the military when it happened, so im guessing a long time ago (not gonna look up the exact date).

and all division games are important. sure we have their number in the playoffs but at least they can say they win games vs us once in a while. we can't say the same about the patriots and brady

Try never. They're 0-3 against us in the postseason. And we don't play the Pats twice a season either. Before last season, we hadn't played the Patriots with Brady since 2007. And before that, we hadn't played them since 2005, and we gave them that game on that stupid lateral attempt by Randle El.

I am almost positive they've never beaten us in a playoff game. Thing is when they usually beat us it's either early on the season like this and last year or really late in the season when we're resting our starters. Their fans make a lot of noises about how we never blow them out like they have us this year for example and in 2006 both games but that's ignoring the fact that we have a 60% winning percentage against them and that's not even mentioning the fact we've beaten them twice in the playoffs.

that's a good thing because that'd be 2 automatic losses for us

difference between the pats-steelers and steelers-ravens matchups is the ravens win some of them, and when they lose usually play well enough to keep it close. we usually are on the wrong side of an ass raping with a baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire when facing the patriots
