hopefully the ravens will now give joe cool that 100 million dollar contract and hang that albatross around their neck for the next 6 or 7 years....

Wait till the playoffs. That's where you will find out what kind of team you have.

The comparison is not totally justified. The Steelers didn't beat the Patriots on a last second drive encompassing the length of the field, did they? That victory was more about getting the proverbial 'monkey off of their back.' If you were to say the Ravens had such a game with the Steelers, it would definitely have been that Week 1 win in Baltimore.

Like I said, it's not about 'beating the Steelers.' It's that winning in that fashion, on a seemingly improbable march down the field, was an exciting moment for them as a team. Their opponent being the Steelers, against whom they have had more than their fair share late-game frustrations, must factor in, but it is only a part of it.

That's fine...I'm too tired to really argue against it anymore right now anyhow.

I've just never seen anything like it honestly (not that I can remember anyway), and I know I wouldn't like if the Steelers did it in the regular season, no matter the situation.

Hey, it's just like your coach said how they should have stopped it if they didn't like it.
This isn't college.
