By the way, you are only insulting yourself by insinuating that Flacco is bad, because he tore your team a new one TWICE last year. I guess you get crushed by bad QBs these days?

That was a heck of a play that Sterling Moore made on that ball.....It was a great play....The part that is sad, is at the end of the game Harbaugh said were sticking with Billy, and was pumping him up, but threw him under the bus next season......

Byron has always been a serviceable qb that for the most part doesn't turn the ball over. He is by no means a mobile qb but I have faith that our line will play hard to keep him upright and if we can get a turn over or two we can win it without ben. Oh yeah and Byron is pretty tough himself. Anybody remember this? http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=U-jzYMSiNHQ

Yeah, let anyone who doubts his leadership or toughness watch this and still try to question it.

I personally prefer Batch over Lefty, but since the decision has been made in favor of Lefty, then so be it. Almost all signs point to a ravens victory, but I believe the Steelers will find a way to eek out a victory Sunday night. It may not be pretty, but a win is a win. I think the defense should be able to keep the score low enough that we will be able to score just enough points to win. A 3 point win is just as good as a 33 point win.

Pete Prisco believes


This is a huge game in the AFC. The winner will be in first place in the AFC North. This used to be a physical war, but it's now more about each team's passing game. One problem: The Steelers might not have Ben Roethlisberger. Can Byron Leftwich keep up if it's a shootout? I think he can. The Steelers find a way -- even without Roethlisberger.

Steelers - 28 Ravens - 23

True indeed. I was making reference to those in the national media and all of the doom and gloomers out there who seem to completely dismiss the Steelers defense as a part of the game. They make it seem as if the Steelers defense does it's job and holds a team to 17 points or fewer, then that means the offense has to score 50 or more points in order to win. Which is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to win 50-17, but I'll take an 18-17 victory just as well
