Don't get me wrong, I'd love to win 50-17, but I'll take an 18-17 victory just as well
Right on! I'd love to see a 3 to 2 victory Sunday. It would keep me on the edge of my seat all night (which is where I am every Steelers' game).

the ratty ratbirds haven't exactly been fearsome this year..
26th run defense
26th pass defense
16 sacks
its the officials the steelers need to worry about. they are the real reason the rat bastards are still in 1st in the division.

I dont insult myself lol, I just stated the truth. Until Flacco wins something, he will be a regular season doll just like Romo. He is like alot if other QBs, big stats and no rings which is even more pathetic given the caliber of the ravens def the past few years.

If Sandwich wins this game for us I will start calling him by his real name but first he must earn it in my books.

Now as far as the other QB's that won games for us when Ben was out had at least some talent. Maybe I am being too critical but after watching a few throws from him and seeing how he controlled the offense I have no faith in him. But like I've been saying I hope he proves me wrong but something tells me we are primarily going to have to depend on our defense. I still this this is going to be a brutal loss.

FYI...what's so bad about Tebow? He did a great job when he was QB and as a rookie took his team to the playoffs. He has a lot of talent and would be better then Sandwich.

Leftwich has played like 6 games filling in for Ben, and he pretty much mopped up. He finished 2008 with us with like a 105 passer rating. When he took over at the Chiefs his performance mirrored Ben's numbers. How can you bag on him for this last game when his numbers were near identical to Ben's?

Blah blah blah to another Ravens supporter. How about this...at least our QB can actually win a SuperBowl. At least our QB doesn't wine when he gets hurt. At least our QB has more trophies and MVP's then Flacco ever will. Yes Flacco is ok but he's no Ben. He's a wannabe Ben. Just a shadow playing for a team the always chokes when the game is on the line. Ravens are a second rate team. We have 6 SB rings and hold the most NFL records then any NFL team in the entire history of the NFL. Most rings, most playoff championships etc. Flacco is just a shadow of the actual talent needed to be a winner.

Go back to the Ravens forum.

We...are...PITTSBURGH
