Default Chirp chirp chirp

Every single time we face the freakin ravens, we are forced to hear them talk themselves up for this game. They are talking how war is declared upon them, WTF?? its a football game. Suggs talking about how he owns ben because he gets sacks, which dont win football games as Ben is 6-1 vs the Ravens since the 06 sweep. Now, the steelers do their talking; for instance, Mike Wallace saying Webb cannot check him (after he was kind of provoked by Webb himself). And of course, woodley saying Flacco will never a SBin his lifetime. But its been kind of tiring that every time these two teams face, the Ravens have to try and rib and poke the Steelers for six straight days. Just throwing my opinion out there.

It's annoying, I agree. But if we win, it just makes the victory all that much sweeter.

it must be tough being second fiddle

I don't mind it from the players as much as I do from some of their fans who tend to beat their chest a little harder than they should. When you think about it - they are the equivalent of the Buccaneers - 1 SB a long time ago, except the Ravens get into division deciding games and playoff matches and completely crap themselves.

I'd like to say I feel sorry for them, but I don't - bye bye Ravens

Damn, you pegged the bucs fans squarely on the head. Do you live in the Tampa area?

But you're right, the ratbird fans keep thumping their chest but yet the team never delivers when it matters most. It's funny to watch them get all high and mighty during the regular season only to have their hearts ripped out by the Steelers in the end.

actually my wife and I are originally from the Pittsburgh area and we moved down to Ratbird country in 06' for jobs

Of course, the job market isn't great down here, or anywhere for that matter - sometimes contemplate moving back - miss the slower pace and the sense of community - living in a transient area - no one talks to each other!

Yeah I grew up 45 minutes outside of B-more. Moved to the Tampa area in 2000. Thankfully there's plenty of Steelers folks down here that help continue the family sense that all Steelers fan come to embrace.

You guys are a riot. I get the feeling that Steelers fans are the only ones allowed to cheer for their team or say they are going to win. Its a division game between the two teams that have been at the top of the division for the past couple years. It is always a smash mouth, beat down, drag out game on both sides that is typically decided by less than a touchdown. Yes the Steelers have won the majority of the meetings lately, but don't act like you all are just sittin back in your recliners not worried or thinking about this game. Or beating your chest how Flacco sucks, Suggs is a thug, Steelers are classy, B-more is trash, they can't win in primetime in P-burg, etc. etc. Fans will be fans and cheer for their team, no matter what. Do I think it is going to be a brutal game... yup. Do you think the Ravens are gonna win again... yup. It's what it means to be a fan. You all take such "pride" about being a Steelers fan.... your not the only ones.

Here's to a good game. Go Ravens!!!

You are quite a level headed fan...that much is for sure. There is no way you can deny though that this typical sentiment is shared by both sides fans. We hate you, you hate us. That's how it goes. Don't pretend that Steelers fans are the only ones doing this kind of trash talking on their forums though. That's the only thing that really annoys me about this whole rivalry...is that is seems Ravens fans feel like this is a one sided issue (the trash talking from fans). It's not...by any means.

I browse a couple of Ravens forums...and I have never once seen a Ravens fan say anything similar to what you just said towards their own fans (when it comes to trash talking the other team). Those kinds of posts are almost always met with internet high fives and rally cries for victory.

Just don't be that hypocrite that acts like their own teams fans don't do the same thing that we do.

With that said, I am certainly not one who is sittin' back feeling all good about this game. I never feel good about Ravens/Steelers matchups....despite the Steelers winning record against them. Anyone who says differently is delusional. Do I feel the Steelers have a decent chance of winning? Absolutely. They've improved significantly since week 1.

I think where Steelers fans sentiments lie in terms of Suggs trashtalking (and to a lesser degree, a couple of other Ravens players), is that they really haven't had anything significant to back it up with. I get that he's trying to pump his team up...but it just seems silly to me to have to do it publicly, all the while knowing that at the end of most games, the Steelers come out on top. This is something that Suggs, and any other Ravens player who want so talk trash, should keep to themselves or the locker room until they can really prove themselves when it matters.

Like SteelerFreak said...talk is cheap. You need to be able to consistently back up that talk with actions.
