Better yet, how about we count Lombardis in even more recent times, lets say the last ten years:
2:0

Applauding regular season wins are for Colts fans ("We may have lost in the opening round of the play-offs, but, Yee-ha!!!.. we went 13-3!!!") AND for Taperiot fans ("We ate humble pie, we went undefeated in the regular season, and we lost the championship... but, but, but... we were 18-0 at one point... hey... look at us... hey!!!... 18-1...").

So... uh... yeah!!!... 7-2!!!
You just failed the critical thinking portion of this exam. I said that 7-2 is the only stat that matters in connection with this game. That was a response to the fact that we are ranked 26th on defense. I wasn't applauding anything.

The implication was that 26th on defense or not, we are providing enough support so that our offense gets more than our opponent, most times. Sorry you missed that, and thought I was comparing 7 regular season wins to 6 superbowl wins. I think the overreaction comes from the sad fact that without BB your chances of winning have dipped severely.

Man you guys are just really mad this week. Calm down, you haven't lost yet. To answer all of your posts at once, yea, I hope that in 80 years the franchise that I love has established a history that is as successful and dignified as your own, and we don't have that yet. I have a lot of respect for the Steelers, but none of that has anything to do with Sunday night.

I know that you all have a hard time keeping things in the present, but to get back to the topic (Leftwich will start) in my opinion despite having the 26th defense we will take the W, 23-21 Ravens.

Steelers 17 Ravens 16

The score won't show our dominating game,
penalties & a couple INT's slow down this offence.

I have confidence in Lefty, like I said before, I think this will be a close game and whoever makes the least mistakes will take it. Fortunately the next one will more important to whomever loses this one, so I am hoping for a win, then Lefty can have another game under his belt before we meet up again so we can have some continuity. Honestly this game is not as important (at this stage as Balty has a tougher schedule from here on out) for Balty as it is for us. They do have a 1 game adv so a split still leaves them 1 up on us. Either way, both should be in the playoffs and probably a third meeting for everything.

Oh... now that you ADDED that bolded portion, it all makes sense.

So... uh... again... yeah!!! ...7-2!!!

Q: What does a 7-2 record have to do with the outcome of this upcoming game???

A: NOTHING

The Taperiots were 18-0... and lost the SuperBowl. The Packers were 15-1... and lost in the play-offs last year. Prior wins have nothing to do with future games. Make sense?

Yeah... 7-2!!!

Now accepting the fact ben will be gone for a long time and possibly the remainder of the season we face the prospect of succeeding with out an elite quarterback, kind of like the 49ers. Leftwich really isn't that bad. Were we better with Ben? yes. Probably the hottest team in the NFL. Are we still really Fing good? Yes, We came back and beat the chiefs with out Ben and I'm sure we will do just fine. I think it would be nice if we can get to the playoffs and then get Ben back though.

C'mon defense, cmon running game..... We just need him to manage the game. No turn overs, just pick up the third and shorts, and throw a few decent mid range passes here and there.
