Why? Why are you even on here?

See, I thought it was just to talk shit. But, it's more than that. I think you're scared. I think you saw how the Ravens play on the road, and if they have to go against a team like New England in the playoffs, you're fucked three ways from Sunday. I think you're trying to convince yourself that the Ravens are a good team and deserve to be 9-2, despite almost losing to Dallas, Kansas City and San Diego. Talk all the shit you want about us losing to Oakland, Tennessee and Cleveland, but you lost to Philadelphia - another 3 - 8 team.

You barely squeaked by a Steelers team without Polamalu, Brown and Byron Leftwich by three points. Your "dominant" play makers on defense were AWOL all night and Flacco was, well, Flacco.

I wouldn't put my faith in the kid from Delaware if I were you. I mean, he hasn't won dick all in the playoffs in terms of meaningful games, let alone beating the Steelers in the playoffs - something he'll never accomplish. It doesn't matter if we lose tomorrow, because when we see you in the playoffs, we're going to rip the fucking roof off M&T with a healthy Ben - that is, unless Brady gets the pleasure of doing it first. I hope not, because I'd love to see Johnny's face as his team doesn't do anything in the playoffs again.

So, talk your shit. We don't have to - we know we're the better team and we're going to show you why tomorrow.

Talking smack about someone's record because they played close games is ridiculous. Especially when your team has an inferior record. Pre-empting rebuttal by pointing out losses to horrible teams doesn't exude much confidence. We're 9-2. Deal with it.

actually its pretty relevant. When you get to playoffs your record is erased. To think you are going to convert a 4th and 26 to win a game in playoffs is delusional. Then again when your bar is set at winning the division you guys don't even need to worry about the playoffs. Steelers bar is always set higher than the turds.

I have absolutely no idea what you're babbling about. 4th and 26? Setting the bar at a division crown? Who said that?

The definition of a loser is someone who goes on another team's forum to talk shit. And you have 33 posts here, that is pathetic. I'm not saying my life is unbelievably busy or anything, but whatever time you took out of yours to post here 33 times would have been much better spent doing anything else. You clowns are lucky you didn't get beat by Byron freaking Leftwich and had the tables been turned and Flacco was out vs. a healthy Ben y'all would have been smoked out of the building.

As for the original topic of this thread, we're still in OK shape, win or lose today (and in all likelihood, barring some huge points from defense/special teams, this may be an L) we have 4 games that we will be favored in down the stretch. All can be W's if Ben comes back, and we can probably afford one loss, even. Dec. 23rd against Cincy is shaping up to be bigger than any of us could have imagined.

This easily has to be one of the dumbest arguments I've ever read. You're calling out posters for having a two digit post count? I've seen guys take gruff from people for having thousands of posts... but thirty-three? Really?

Anyways, I still think you guys make the playoffs after we beat you today. I think you'll then receive an early and hasty exit from Manning & Co.

I think it's funny: If Ben didn't get hurt, I think there's a very good chance we beat both the Ravens and the Browns. We'd be sitting at 8-3, with the division in the bag with a win today. And perhaps even a first round bye.

But in reality, our QB got hurt and now we're a 6-5 team, perhaps a 6-6 team after today.

Now, I wouldn't call myself overly confident, but I do know what this team is capable of. We hung in there against the Broncos (our offense looked really flat that game - probably because it was Todd's first game). We handedly beat the Giants. We would have (woulda coulda shoulda) beaten the Ravens with a healthy Ben.

That being said, I also know how bad this team can play. Take the Tenn game and the Oakland game for example. We have a history of playing down to our competition. Even the Broncos game last year showed our weakness and stubbornness as a team (even though we were injured).

I am saying that this group of guys is certainly capable of running the table once we get Ben back, sneaking into the playoffs as a 5/6th seed, and making it all the way to 47. But just because we're capable doesn't mean it's going to happen. I have hope, but I also have some concern. Enough of this rant. Go Steelers.
